Just wondering if I can pose a few silly questions for the experienced folk here.

First off...I'm confused as to whether Primal and Paleo are the same thing? I've been doing a bit of reading and it seems the macronutrient content is a bit different between the two?

Also, I'm really looking to lose weight and become healthier. Is fruit really a good idea? I've always been told to eliminate due to the high calorie and sugar content. The fat and nut content scares me too as both are very caloric. Any advise? I'm a 5'4 - 138 lb female. I'd love to shed 20 lb.

Thank you all!
