I’ve lost 25 pounds since January 1st! If you knew how much I needed to lose to start with, that number would not impress you much. In fact, I probably could have lost much more had I continued to eat healthy, as I set out to do in 2010.
But 25 pounds is 25 pounds, so I’ll take it. The good news is, much of that loss has come in the last 4-6 weeks, when I kick-started my weight-loss goals following a plan called Primal Blueprint. Not one to follow plans (or extremes), I was naturally skeptical.
However, I started reading Mark’s blog, Mark’s Daily Apple (hat tip to a reader named Michael who first introduced me to Mark’s blog), and found that much of the information resonated with my “frugal diet” approach. Eliminate processed foods. Watch your carb intake, even whole wheat grains. Move slowly several times a week. Move quickly once or twice a week. Move heavy stuff. Eat high-quality meat, plants and berries. Even I can do this. So far so good!
