VLC/Primal is difficult to follow, especially if you make the effort to get all your stuff organic and grass-fed. About the only way I can do it is to spend every single Saturday going to the farmer's market, then going to the natural foods store for stuff the market didn't have, then spending the afternoon cleaning, chopping, cooking, portionining, and freezing my meals for the whole week. Saturday is GONE, but at least I don't have to do much the rest of the week.

Reason: for clarity
5'0" female, 44 years old. Started Primal October 31, 2011, at a skinny fat 111.5 lbs. Low weight: 99.5 lb on a fast. Gained back to 115(!) on SAD chocolate, potato chips, and stress. Currently keeping food tracker.
I (try to) follow by-the-book primal as advocated by Mark Sisson, except for whey powder and a bit of cream. I advocate a two-month strict adjustment for newbies. But everybody is different and should tweak Primal to their own needs.
