    Accumulated wisdon of the board -stickies and sigs.

    So, it would be cool to have a series of one-page add-ons to PB, since the one size fits all basic guidelines don't necessarily work the same for everyone. I made a stab at a simple, short guide to PB-based weight loss, but the other foci people have would require very different approaches. We could all stick them in our sigs. Anyone want to add to this?

    Rapid Weight Loss Version of Primal:

    Take Primal and:

    1. Never snack - eat one to three times per day. Skipping breakfast is usually not too hard.
    2. Eat slowly and don't stuff yourself at meals. Buy a smaller plate if it helps. Calories matter, and PB never said they don't.
    3. Get enough animal protein every day - it spares muscle and is the most filling macro. A pound of flesh per day would be a good ballpark amount for most.
    3. Avoid at all costs (these foods are either PB-approved or marginal):
    Milk
    Nuts
    Fried foods
    Liquid calories such as shakes

    4. Minimize your use of:
    Other dairy
    semi-approved carbs such as white rice and potatoes
    dried fruits and very sweet fruits
    Alcohol, even wine

    5. Go on a nice long walk every day - this will be your main exercise. An ideal schedule is to skip breakfast and take an hour walk before lunch.

    6. Focus on the sleep and the stress, not the scale.

    7. To gauge progress, find some "goal clothes" - ie when you fit them properly, you'll be done. This could be your wedding dress, old clothes, new clothes that you buy in advance, whatever. Take 'before' pics and write about how the clothes fit. Every two weeks, take new pics and note the fit of the clothes. Weigh yourself very seldom to never.

    Muscle Gain version of Primal:

    Allergy Finder version of Primal:
    Gut Healer version of Primal:

    Notice - I'm avoiding the minefields of Jack Kruze, IF, VLC, etc. and just focusing on what we all mostly agree on, and eliminating the counting / obsessive element as much as possible.

    This will add further confusion to the forums. People have lost weight eating all of your "avoid at all costs" foods, tfarny.

    i think this is great.

    i'm not as well learned in allergies and gut healing, and i'm not going to touch muscle gain (way too many opinions on that around here)...but i'd be happy to do one of these for sprinting.

    Tfarny, What you said...except I would add artificial sweeteners to the foods to avoid. I have had binge issues throughout my entire 16 months Primal. My binges included grains, sugar, you name it. Obviously, this behavior hindered my progress. I finally got desperate enough in seeking a solution to drop all sweeteners. Eureka! No more binges. For some people AS are not helpful to the weight loss process.

    @ tfarny, I agree with your sig whole heartedly, as well as the sentiment of this thread, but..

    I also think Grumpy's onto something.

    And just to clarify, when you mention "fried foods" are you talking fried in a deep fat fryer, in a frying pan/skillet or both?
