New to the forum and new to primal eating

Hi everyone! I'm brand new to low carb eating and after hours and hours of research I've decided to follow Mark Sisson's primal eating plan. I'm hoping to lose around 30lbs and to have better health-right now I have low energy/lethargic, bad skin, and just had a glucose test taken due to sugar numbers being elevated (thankfully the test came back normal, but it was a wake up call since so many of my family members are diabetic).

So, I've read Mark's book and I've done a lot of browsing on Mark's Daily Apple. Starting out I'm going to work on making small changes instead of going hard core right off the start. I think this will make it easier for me to stick with it. Over the next few days I'm working on keeping my carb load under 80 grams, remove almost all grains from my diet, up the veggies big time, cut back on diet soda, and drink more water.

Can't wait to meet other members who are following the primal/paleo diet

Welcome, Mom23kids! I think I welcomed you over on Active LowCarbers, too! Like I said over there, I'm 2 months in and enjoying this so far. I did two back-to-back Whole30 Day challenges and in the last 30 days, gained 2#, so I won't be eating quite as much fruit from here on out. Clearly I'm sensitive to the natural fructose. But I can do this program, having been on Atkins 3 years now. You can do this too, and I think your idea of eliminating certain things first is a good way to "test the waters". Let us know how it is going for you along the way.

Thanks for the (second) welcome I figure joining two groups for support/motivation can't hurt lol. I'm really excited to get into primal eating. Weekends will be the hardest since we're away from home/my kitchen a lot, but I'm going to try my best and then really focus on eating primal during the week.

Welcome! I used to have bad skin, and eliminating grains cleared it up very quickly for good. I love Mark's Daily Apple.
