If you're hankering for numbers, have fun with this 50-page chart:
International table of glycemic index and glycemic load values: 2002
The GI winner for grains is... barley, with a GI of 25.
The winners for fruits are grapefruit, cherries, and peaches.
Or, make up a plate savory food at night, and zap it for breakfast the next day. Primals very quickly lose the need to eat traditional breakfast foods for breakfast. I would have ground beef and kale for breakfast and think nothing of it.
EDIT: Wowie, this is interesting:
Full-fat (Italy): 11
Full-fat (3% fat; Skånemejerier, Malmö, Sweden): 21
Full-fat cow milk (Dairy Farmers, Australia): 31
Full-fat (Canada): 34
Full-fat (USA): 40
Either the studies for milk are widely variable, or something is very different about North American milk. Are diary cows corn-fed?

5'0" female, 44 years old. Started Primal October 31, 2011, at a skinny fat 111.5 lbs. Low weight: 99.5 lb on a fast. Gained back to 115(!) on SAD chocolate, potato chips, and stress. Currently keeping food tracker.
I (try to) follow by-the-book primal as advocated by Mark Sisson, except for whey powder and a bit of cream. I advocate a two-month strict adjustment for newbies. But everybody is different and should tweak Primal to their own needs.
