Read your blog - why are you eating shakes instead of food? And the "detox" of veggie cycling? That doesn't seem healthy, it seems more like a crash diet.
Just a quick hello from me, this looks like a pretty cool place to hang out.
I'm right at the beginning of my journey with regards to primal eating so I've started a blog to track the progress if anyone is interested @ GoingPrimal.co.uk

I should have been clearer I suppose. I'd already committed to doing this 30 day detox before I decided to follow primal/paleo way of thinking.
After the 7 day shake/veg detox, it's like an elimination diet for 30 days, and with a few tweaks it's all primal/paleo type foods.
Welcome..but I have to ask..when's the Metagenics UltraMeal Plus 360 detox?
have you seen whats in it?

The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself.
Hi. I've read your blog and see you've had limited success with using conventional diet and exercise, so it'll be interesting to see how well primal works for you. I am also a UK based gym goer in a very sedentary job in IT. Good luck!

Hi from another UK'er, I don't post that much, but I do a lot of reading on this here forum, and it's most informative, so stay on board, and good luck on your journey!
