Comment of the Week

I’m still shocked that I was raised on margarine and tv dinners and bread and pasta and vegetable oils, but I’m now healthier, faster and stronger in my late 50’s thanks to Primal. 5 years and counting. I’m figuring every cell in the body is different after 7 years, so in 2 years I’ll be 100% certified caveman.

– I’m always amazed at how it’s never too late for anyone to improve their life, no matter the circumstances. That’s probably why I keep doing this every day.
