I've been reading this site for a while now, and thought I'd get around to introducing myself.
I've spent the last year trying to diet and count calories, even tried being a raw vegan for a month, and am actually 10 pounds heavier than I was a year ago! The idea of eating so much fat kind of freaks me out, but I am ready to commit to it for 30 days.
I love to workout - I lift heavy twice a week and do intervals twice a week as well. I'm 32, 5 9 and 177 pounds (eeek!) I love to eat - and this primal eating sounds way more delish than my calorie controlled 6 tiny meals per day!
anyway, looking forward to diving into this and seeing where it takes me.
talk to you all soon!
Good luck on the next month of healthy abandon!
My tip: Don't worry about FAT in your food. Just eat it, as much as you can. It will keep you full, happy and keep the carb cravings at bay.
There is lots of great info on the best kinds of fats to indulge in here http://www.marksdailyapple.com/fats/ and here http://www.marksdailyapple.com/saturated-fat-healthy/
FAT FAT FAT FAT will not make you FAT. That is the hardest part for many of us to get over.
WELCOME! You will be happy with your choice I am sure of it! 30 days is plenty of time to realize this is what works. I hope it works for you!
Eat as much as you need to be satisfied (not hungry), not as much as you can.
I am female, 5'7" and 163lbs (and dropping) so I am in a similar weight range as you!
