Not trying to do VLC. I'm quite content with a slow weight loss and I have never been comfortable with fanatical diets. It took me a while to rally to the idea of eliminating grains as is, LOL! For the time being I want to purge them pretty well entirely as a kind of elimination diet to test for intolerance. But I don't shy away from fruit and sweet potatoes and such.
5'2", 55 years, Primal since April. Pre-Primal weight loss, from 216.6 to 157.8

Main Primal goal: beating back my CFS enough to function more normally and start writing again
