I am age 56, and live in N. Indiana. I have inconsistently dabbled with the Paleo/Primal lifestyle in the past. I recently purchased the 21 Day Transformation- with full expectations to overhaul my lifestyle for the better. As I type this I have a sling on my arm, since I had shoulder surgery yesterday. My recovery will provide great adaptive and flexible behavior but it just makes this all the more fun!
I started the (nutritional aspect) program yesterday with a 22 hour fast, which was very comfortable. Looking forward to using this forum to touch base and read the "living of others" to live better myself!

Suddenly I don't hate burpees so much.
Ouch, hope your shoulder recovers okay. Welcome aboard and congratulations on diving right in there.

Our family has been following a primal lifestyle for about 8 months with renewed energy and good vibes! I'm principally using Fitday to track my carb intake. A great source for anyone interested is Marks Daily Apple (Mark Sisson).
I am on day four, and I feel great. Still on post shoulder surgery pain meds, but the meals my wife has been cooking are great. I also have had no cravings for soda pop- which is wonderful. I start therapy next week, so I will break in the exercsie part of this very slowly. Thanks to all for their comments.
Frank, welcome! Good community,good food, good exercise, good results. Win.
I am enjoying the approach of this Primal Blueprint Program. I have not obsessed about being "perfect", just taking each moment as it comes and try to learn from it. 9 days and I have lost just under 5#'s. More importantly, I am just living better, and I am dealing with recovery from my shoulder surgery very well. Doing therapy with a PT, and I have done two strength training sessions lasting a grand total of 26 minutes. So, I am not depleting myself and causing my body to crave a bunch of carbs.
Tomorrow I have a sprint workout on a bike planned. Also, I have a wonderful wife who is preparing wonderful meals which makes this adjustment all the more meaningful.
Thanks for the warm greetings and support!
