    I have been following the primal diet (Dr John Briffa Escape the diet trap version) for a week now. Whilst on holiday I might add, bread appears at every meal here in portugal, but I havent touched a crumb of it! Done lots of activity including a 15 mike bike ride, 1km swim, 3 weights session's, 2 x 3 mile hilly walks so am hoping when I weigh back ome I have lost lbs or at least inches.

    How was weight loss at first for everyone?? Fast? slow? Also if you hit plateaus what got you losing again? I am 46 yr old female weighing 200lb and 5ft 8 inch medium build, fairly fit and active but carry weight on my middle so determined tha by giving up all those items I am intolerant to I may lose weight this time!!!

    I lost 7 Ibs in the first week and to be honest I stopped weighing myself after that. I just know my clothes feel a bit loose and a couple of people have commented, whihc is great as that spurs you on. I haven't had chance to do as much exercise though in the last few weeks so not sure if that will make a difference. I feel like I'm not craving biscuits etc as much now too.
