My Marks Daily Apple post

Amazing results. When I started following the Primal Blueprint I wasn't sure I could do it. 22 lbs proves I can do it too :-) Thanks Mark and Forumites!

I use to drink 3-4 cans of Pepsi a day and ate at least 2 sandwiches (white bread) and a roll with supper. I ate chocolate covered granola bars and choc chip cookies all the time. Since I have been following this I have been eating only fruit, veggies and Meat. I only drink water. I have been going to the gym at the fire hall where I volunteer and doing 2 25 minute heavy weight I walk all the time anyway. I have not worked the sprinting in yet but I will.

I have much more energy. In the mornings I'll have 2 eggs and bacon and a whey shake with chia seeds in it. That keeps me going for usually 6 hrs. I only eat when I'm hungry so usually just breakfast and supper time. I f I get a hunger need 1/2 way through the day I find a good piece of fruit usually fills me and I'm good to go till supper time. Amazing! Supper is usually something from the slow cooker or on of the recipes from the site. I find the slow cooker has really become my friend :-)

I love that I no longer have sugar crashes. Absolutely LOVE IT. My carbs are always under 150 and my protein content is always high. I use to do some yard work then come in have a pepsi and some cookies because I was tired. Then head back out and back out for another 1hr. Sugar crash. come back in have another snack. That is all gone. I can go out and work for hours and hours without feeling the need to stop. Other than to stop and take inventory.

I have also started taking multi vitamins, Omega 3 and Vitamin D (on the days i'm not outside).

I asked my boss for a stand up desk as I have the energy to stand all day. It was a bit getting use to. At 1st I stood 1/2 of the day and not I last the whole 12 hr shift only sitting to relax once in a while.

I am amazed how quick I seemed to switch over from carb burning to fat burning. Well that what I feel has happened.

This has definitely been a life changing experience. Thanks for writing the book Mark!!!!!!
