Difference between Primal and Paleo
Can anyone give me the difference between these two?

Paleo says no to dairy.... Primal does not... IMO they are the same... When starring out for the first thirty I suggest cutting dairy to see if it is an issue or not...

Did you just add your dairy back one product at a time? I never had a problem with dairy but I took it out anyway to see if it might be doing something hormonal. What signs should I look for besides any lactose intolerance?

I agree that the difference is mainly the dairy - I consider myself paleo but I still use cream in my coffee, eat some cheese and use some greek yogurt. So some would consider me more primal - it's all about what you can tolerate. If you don't have issues with dairy you can eat it in modertion (full fat only though) - it won't raise your glucose levels and does not contain glutens (except some dairy - e.g, cottage cheese and some bleu cheese - watch the ingredients on those).

I agree with cutting it out at first -you won't know if you have issues with dairy if you never try going "dairy-free" for awhile. If you feel better without it, it might mean your system is intolerant to dairy and you never actually knew it. That's pretty common.
