  • First post, Going Primal!

    Just a quick hello from me, this looks like a pretty cool place to hang out.

    I'm right at the beginning of my journey with regards to primal eating so I've started a blog to track the progress if anyone is interested @

    Twitter ID is @GoingPrimalUK

    Read your blog - why are you eating shakes instead of food? And the "detox" of veggie cycling? That doesn't seem healthy, it seems more like a crash diet.

      I should have been clearer I suppose. I'd already committed to doing this 30 day detox before I decided to follow primal/paleo way of thinking.
      After the 7 day shake/veg detox, it's like an elimination diet for 30 days, and with a few tweaks it's all primal/paleo type foods.

          Hi. I've read your blog and see you've had limited success with using conventional diet and exercise, so it'll be interesting to see how well primal works for you. I am also a UK based gym goer in a very sedentary job in IT. Good luck!

GW: ~24% BF - have ditched the scales til I fit into a pair of UK size 10 bootcut jeans. Currently aligning towards 'The Perfect Health Diet' having swapped some fat for potatoes.
