    Primal Fuel


    I am going to try and keep this updated as well as my usual blog - I guess that's a challenge in itself!


    I have been eating a hybrid of a primal/paleo/atkins diet for a good few months now, with pretty good success despite some slip ups and regressions.


    It's time to get serious, though, and really focus on not letting old foods and habits creep back into my diet and I'm so excited about this challenge!


    My aim is to stay mainly primal in my diet for a month, keeing my carbohydrate intake low (<50g) and consisting solely of vegetables, nuts and the odd piece of fruit.


    No grains, no sugar, no alcohol, no caffeine. Reduce my consumption of dairy to <50g cheese (or cream) a day. No milk.


    I also want to focus on getting back to basics with my exercise routine. I&#39;m bored of the gym so it&#39;s back to running intervals outside, mountain biking and rock climbing as well as the odd yoga session to relax and stretch.


    So, time to take on the Primal Challenge and get motivated, fit and healthy! Good luck everyone!

    Unfortunately I didn&#39;t manage to run outside today because the weather was appalling, but took a leisurely bike ride to my optician&#39;s appointment instead of driving. Got quite wet, but I&#39;m sure Grok wouldn&#39;t moan about frizzy hair and soggy shoes!
