My Personal Pros/Cons/Nons:
-Some weight loss
-Able to enjoy simple, quality foods
-More willing to try new foods
-Able to handle not eating for several hours
-Increase in hair loss the in shower
-Increase in visible wrinkles
-New issues with menorrhea (never had a problem with regularity before primal)
-Increase in binging activity (I'm working on that though, and I think it's a personal problem I've simply ignored in the past. Primal has made me more aware of it)
-Developed an unhealthy relationship with food and constant stress over what I was eating. I'm working on getting over that and doing what it manageable for me, but it was a hard couple of months of eating-disorder behavior for a while.
-Constant analysis of weight and diet by others. Seriously, why does weight loss give others the right to critique your body and eating habits? It's like if you lose weight, then you are automatically damaging your body and health. Never mind actually looking at what I eat and the fact that I should be losing weight because I'm an unhealthy size! So ridiculous. Where do people get off telling me I should stop losing weight and eating weird? I'm still slightly overweight, and they should mind their own dang business. Ok, rant over. Sorry. I just hate that. You do your thing and I'll do mine, OK?
-No change in sleep patterns or amount of sleep
-No change in how often I get sick (it's still never though, my immune system has always been pretty tough)
-No change in energy level
-Basically if I didn't mention it in either list, it didn't change.
As you can see, my results have been more mixed then others. However, I do fiercely believe in the policy of eating natural foods and balancing meat and veg. It was a while before I understood that not everyone on this forum is a completely reliable source of information, and that what some preach as perfect does not work for others. Took me a long time to learn that, but I'm making progress. Sifting through all of the info out there and deciding what makes sense and works for you personally is key, I think. I'm still tweaking my own eating habits, and I learn something new every day. But I think primal is a wonderful place to start.
