    Feeling "wierd" when being primal

    Shop Now
    Hi all!

    I have been eating "primal" for several months before re-eating industrialised foods (bad!) and started to re-discipline myself to eat only primal, but I have a question.

    When being on "primal" I fell like i'm missing something, like some aliment and I'm more food obsessed.

    Would you think that it is because my quantity is insufficiant? or is that the famous "akins flu" that lasts some time.

    Thank you, any guidance would be appreciated.


    PS.- I'v been feeling like that for a week.

    It always strange for me reading about people who went primal and then went back to SAD.
    Like, why?

    It'll help if you post a typical days diet.

    And also, I don't feel more energised at all (i'v got low blood pressure), but i'm more "zen".

    Would you know any aliments that may increase the blood pressure? Thank you!

    Your not going to get much carbs from veggies. Most of it is used in the digestive process.

    Looks like you need some fat... what are you cooking your beef in?
    Can you eat eggs?
    5'0" female, 43 years old. Started Primal October 31, 2011, at a skinny fat 111.5 lbs. Low weight: 99.5 lb on a fast. Current weight: skinny-fat 106.5 lbs because of sugar cheating.

    MY PRIMAL: I (try to) follow by-the-book primal as advocated by Mark Sisson, except for whey powder and a bit of cream. I aim for 80-90 g carb/day and advocate a two-month strict adjustment for newbies. But everybody is different and other need to tweak Primal to their own needs.
