    You do realize what fasting means, right?

    Thanks RitaRose. I get the whole concept of going Primal. I understand it is more than just 'eating' a certain way. It's a complete lifestyle change. I have implemented many of the ideas behind it (simplicity, lots of walks in fresh, outsprinting my kids lol).

    Again, I am getting different viewpoints here about fasting. Mark stated that occasional fasting isn't that bad...hmmm...

    Where are these differing viewpoints you speak of? Nobody in this thread has said fasting is a bad idea...

    StackingPlates, are you usually this sarcastic? If so, please don't bother answering my thread. I came here to ask honest questions, and I was hoping for sincere, helpful answers from this community. Not "are you stupid" sort of replies. Thank you.

    It may have come across as sarcastic, but StackingPlates asked a valid question. You have referred to a "fast" several times. the definition of fasting, from dictionary.com is

    verb (used without object)
    1. to abstain from all food.
    2. to eat only sparingly or of certain kinds of food, especially as a religious observance.

    If you are consuming anything, even Primal Fuel, then you are not fasting, you are going on a very low calorie diet. Fasting can be good and Mark has indeed done a series of good articles on intermittent fasting and why it's good for you. Primal Fuel or its ilk can also be quite good in a pinch, although as a general rule I don't like that type of thing as an actual meal replacement on a regular basis. As others have said, if I'm going to go low calorie, I'd rather obtain the calories I am getting from whole foods rather than a powdered drink. If I'm going to fast, then I'm going to fast and it's only water for whatever length of time I am doing the fast.

    Weight loss can happen when you go primal and start eating real food but eating Primal is not a weigh loss diet.
    Eating primal is not a diet, it is a way of life.

    Fasting is great.
    So is Primal Fuel. Very tasty but it really packs a calorie punch. Lots of coconut in it. (And I agree that it is massively overpriced).
    So I don't think that Primal Fuel and fasting go together.
    I would see Primal Fuel as a good meal replacement or as a supplement for someone who struggles to gain weight.
    At PrimalCon last year they were passing out Primal Fuel shakes every day. I put on four pounds that weekend.
