I'm new too and don't really have much to add except to say that this is my third day Primal. I got all the information off Mark's website and also checked out the book from the library. It seems sound - I am excited to see what happens.

Thank you for this information. It doesn't seem that this board is very active? I do so very much appreciate you being here to help me at least get started. I find it is very similar to what I have been doing on Protein Power (low carb) with mild changes, If I am understanding it correctly. I will check out all you have said too.

Never give up or look back,

Mickee

Yes - the book is mainly what I am referring to - the Primal Blueprint. The recipe books may come in handy, but I haven't used them too much as yet. Unfortunately my family isn't on board with Paleo/Primal, so I'm cooking 2 meals most nights.

I also read Robb Wolf's book (may have spelled his name wrong - "The Paleo Solution", and Sarah Fragoso's book "Everyday Paleo". I've used recipes from her book a few times.

I started my Primal journey with a Whole 30 by Whole 9 - you may want to google that. I found it really helped. It's like going cold turkey but it really helps to get rid of cravings, and kickstarts your weightloss.

Good luck!

Thank you. I did that last night and signed up for the e-mail newsletter and blog feed too. I read lesson #1 last night and have lesson #2 in my inbox. Are these what will help me become more informed on what to and not to do? There were also about 6 other downloads, I think one was the book, 2 cookbooks, a smoothie book, etc. Are those what you were referring to?

Just wanted to pop in and say I just joined this team. I have been doing Protein Power which is a low carb plan that I know well, but someone suggested I might be happier doing Primal. I have done a lot of reading on it and think I will give it a try. The problem is I am not quite sure where to start. It seems like the same low carb thing I have been doing but with more carbs. I was and I stress "was" diabetic and the doc has taken me off meds so I want to try to stay off of them with this eating plan. Any help or advice would be appreciated. Do people post menus on here anywhere? Is there a challenge going on?

Never give up or look back,
