I, for one, love your introduction!
Yep, I hate to be wrong too. Started primal on 1/16 of this year and immediately started tweaking it. Even decided to add dairy and cut out meat for four days. Guess what? I gained four pounds. Dropped dairy. Lost the four pounds! Duh!
So, I am down to the basics -- vegetables, meat, fowl, coconut oil, olive oil, one orange a day (in salad dressing) and some raisins.
And, like you, it's the IF that seems to be doing it. I'm eating a BAS (bad ass salad) once a day with everything in the above list in it. I'm hungry, yep, but it's working. The inches and weight are going down.
I bet we are saving money too.
Hope you have the money for some new jeans:-) That could be embarrassing! In a positive way!
But that's really marvelous. 258 and going down. Way to go. The forum is great. A lot of good stuff, funny stuff, and a bit of annoying stuff just to keep it and us in balance. Keep up the good work!
