Good job on starting a new lifestyle. I don't use the primal blueprint way. Iv been dieting for the last 20 months now. Iv lost 80lbs. Iv done extreme amount of research and lots of trial and error.
Iv learned that fats, carbs, sugars etc.. Doesn't make you fat, it's the fact that we eat more then what are maintenance level is on a daily basis that makes us gain weight.
I'm a huge fan of myfitnesspal. I'm all about tracking what i eat. If you're interested in seeing what I used to look like, check out my thread 15 month transformation in the primal blueprint success forum.
If you need any help along the road just message me.
Being consistent, gets results...
