    Heavy drinker

    Primal Fuel
    Hello everyone.

    I've been a heavy drinker for over twenty years and got the beer belly from hell.

    My diet has been very poor in most of that time, but I quit three days ago.

    Been lurking this board for a couple of weeks and I'm aiming to go primal to the full extent. Although my knowledge on nutrition regarding carbs, fats proteins and healthy eating is not too bad, I do have a few questions that I hope MDA members will be able to help me with.

    Anyway I'm here for now to say hello and will look forward to reading and posting.

    Excellent forum and I'm so pleased I stumbled across it.

    Thanks for the welcomes.

    So far so good patti.

    Long long way to go but I'm confident that if I keep off the booze then I'll succeed at primal.

    best wishes and I hope the hardest part is over.
    When I'd had enough of the grain and starched based 'diabetic eating for health' diet (eating for health, my ass!) my weight was 242.5 lbs. On starting primal- 18th April 2013 weight : 238.1.
    27th July 2013. weight after 100 days 136.9 weight lost 101.2lb ; that's 105.6lbs since I stopped the 'diabetic eating for health'

    Welcome, the basics are pretty straighforward as you've probably seen. If I had a question about any particular food, I found it very helpful to type it in to the search bar on here. Best of luck!

    I wish I could remember what it was, but there was some tie between alcohol cravings and carb cravings. I'm not sure if that's an issue for you, but it's worth looking into.

    My alcohol consumption and cravings are way less on primal. I don't get the 8 o'clock need for a glass of red although I still have the occasional one. Good on you Sol.
