Hello! I have just recently (in the past few months) heard of Mark Sisson and the Primal Blueprint. I read the book and it absolutely makes sense. My father was diagnosed with Type II Diabetes about 10 years ago and at the time I was afraid he wouldn't do what he needed to in order to take care of himself. So I offered to do Atkins with him. He never did anything with it, but I lost 40 lbs! I actually maintained a low carb diet for years and felt amazing. Then I got pregnant and all hell broke loose! My daughter is 4 now and I really want to get back to the way I felt before I got pregnant. My older brother has been following this lifestyle for almost a year and he looks great and says he feels better than he ever has. My mother now, too, is diabetic and my brother has been trying to get both of my parents to read the book, but they're very stubborn.
I'm a little worried about it, just because there is a lot more to this than Atkins. My brother talks about macronutrients and various kinds of oils (for cooking) that I've apparently been oblivious to because I've never heard of them and all kinds of other stuff that I'm not used to thinking about. I'm here for support, I guess, and information/advice, etc. I doubt my daughter will do this with me at the moment because she's very picky, but I'm slowly getting rid of all the junk in our cabinets.
I'm excited to see how this goes!
