    Cheryl, I haven't eaten any processed meat like sausages etc for a long while.... mostly because they are so high in sodium, but I wouldn't be surprised if they also cause me to put on weight because of the preservatives... not something that I am going to test in the near future, but I'll keep an eye on it if they ever work their way into my diet, thanks!

    I do hope you have better luck, but I love my Vitamix. I know it's expensive, but I think it's worth it.

    .... it is an amazing lifestyle, I love it!... MELTNSUE, a Spark friend, recommended it to me a couple of years ago, and I was very skeptical and resistant. She suggested that since I wasn't getting anywhere following the SAD what could be the harm, just give it a try... and I did.

    I am a breast cancer survivor so I wanted to make sure that whatever lifestyle I decided to embark upon would really be beneficial to me; so I read all of the information from the links she provided and much more and decided that this was doable. I made an appointment to see my oncologist and my nutritionist to get blood work done (for comparisons) and to discuss my plan. The deciding factor, whether I would continue to follow the paleo/primal lifestyle, would be what my blood work looked like after the 2 - 3 month challenge:

    This is what my starting stats were:

    Weight: 168
    Cholesterol: 187
    LDL: 121 (my doctor wanted this to be less than 100)
    Triglycerides were 50 so that was good

    ... so I started the lifestyle and in 2.5 months later here are the results:

    Weight: 154
    Cholesterol: 167
    LDL: 107

    ... well, of course I was sold, and have been following it ever since. However, a have fallen off in a big way over the holidays when I followed Mark Sisson's 80/20 rule and I gained most of the weight back. I have lost over the past 2 years the same weight a couple times. So now I have gotten to the point where I am tired of this yo-yo dieting and I am really approaching this a "healing" journey. Focusing on, improving my blood markers, eliminating my sweet tooth and being consistent; hopefully along with those improvements I will start losing the weight again.

    I am hooked on this lifestyle, I am however incorporating some "neolithic" foods in my diet as tolerated for more variety, I am also kind of following, as Robb Wolf suggested, the low carb Protein Power Lifestyle Plan by the Eades. I am following the "Hedonist" approach.

    ... so that's my story so far, I am still writing it.

    Thanks again for the helping with the team. Enjoy your weekend.
