I've started and stopped primal eating a couple of times, but now I'm serious about it. A couple of days after starting, I had my resting metabolic rate done. It showed that my metabolism is slightly fast and that I am burning fat for energy! I am so pleased! The test also told me how many calories I need to eat to maintain and lose weight. I wasn't going to track my calories, but decided to do it for a couple of days out of curiosity. I am not hungry at all and am eating about 1300 calories a day. Normally I would be starving! I want to stay less than 1800 calories a day and am not trying to be on the low end. It just worked out that way.

I am going to do interval exercise but had to take a break because of a miserable cold.

I lost a lot of weight in the past (145lb) but started to regain it. I am determined to get this 40 or so pounds off for good. It was a slow, insidious weight gain over about 2 years.
