Tabata intervals are often used, which is 20 seconds work, 10 seconds rest, for 8 rounds.
If you have a smart phone you can download HIIT timers as free apps and there is a circuit trainer app that has a free version that has a certain number of free routines you can follow and it shows you the excersisies as little aninmations.
I do drink coffee, and I don't feel it is detremental to weight loss as long as you don't have cream/milk or sugar in it (and I avoid artfical/calorie free sweetners for a number of reasons too) I have 1 - 2 coffees a day with cream, 1 is my first thing drink and I might have another with my first meal of the day. Other than that I take it black so there are no calories.
I don't drink alcohol mainly as having young kids in the house and co-sleeping with our 1 year old I don't like to be in a state where I can't drive to hospital if I need to, or be even slighty buzzed for co-sleeping, just my choice. I don't think you need to cut out occasional drinking, but it it's all down to how you deal with it personally, a glass of red wine to relax can be a net benifit to your health, a bottle of cooking sherry out of a brown paper bag on a park bench probably not a positive choice
BTW have you seen the e-mail service Mark has just launched - unlimited 1-2-1 e-mail support for $10 a month and a primal meal plan e-mailed to you for $10 a month, either or both of these might benifit you if you are stuggling to get fully on board with the whole primal thing, and I think they are pretty good value (to be honest once you've got a months worth of meal plans you could just start back at week one again, I know I don't have that much variety in my diet)
You know all those pictures of Adam and Eve where they have belly button? Think about it..................... take as long as you need........................
