Sabine, if you can't afford primal right now, have you thought about going semi-vegetarian? I lost a lot of weight that way. Probably wasn't doing good things for my gut, but towards the end I had cut back quite a bit on carbs and grains anyway. Lentils are not at all expensive, for instance, and can be a lot of fun to eat without packing the pounds on. If you stick to the least offensive legumes and grains, you might be able to maintain your weight loss and keep the bills low too. (Man, do I feel like a heretic...)
5'2", 55 years, Primal since April. Pre-Primal weight loss, from 216.6 to 157.8
Primal low: 140.2 (Dec. 3) Goal weight: 135?
Main Primal goal: beating back my CFS enough to function more normally and start writing again
More and more, our life has been governed by specialists, who know too little of what lies outside their province to be able to know enough about what takes place within it.
