    Newbie seeking advice

    Primal Fuel
    Hello all, my name is Dom and i'm new here

    I've been looking at PB for a few weeks now, bought the book and read up on this site etc and i'm starting the "diet" on Wednesday. I've recently found out that I am a father-to-be and I'd really like to be in better shape for then as, no doubt, I will be very busy and will find it harder to stick to workout routines so progress may be slower for a while at that time.

    I'm currently 200lbs, 5'10" and around 33% body fat By August (when the baby is due) I would like to around 168lbs but more importantly between 10-15% body fat. I will be sticking to a low carb intake between 50-80 and doing daily workouts and weights at home, as well as going for walks once a day and playing some indoor football once a week.

    Does this seem like a realistic goal?

    Hi Dom. I'm new too, so can't answer your question, though the 168 pounds part sounds very realistic from what I've read on the blog pages. I guess each person is different, so I think that it is important to listen to your body and pay close attention to how it responds. I wish you all the best in your journey!

    Yes. Very realistic. Congratulations, Dom, and good luck.

    Thank you guys

    I've done more body fat measurement on a few sites now and it's looking more like 25% rather than 33% (can't remember where I got that figure from) so that should make it easier to achieve my goal \o/
