Intro to Primal now for just $63!

For just $3 a day, you can live the primal way.
Everything you need to know to get started.

 Ready to learn what going Primal/Paleo is all about?

I’ll tell you what to eat, what not to eat, and even when to eat so that you can keep up the Primal lifestyle. We’ll throw in some exercising and talk about getting a good nights sleep, perhaps even a touch of meditation. Once you get a routine going, you’ll be able to turn a 21-day plan into a lifelong plan!

Why choose the Primal Plan?

  1. Target unwanted weight – By replacing carbs with fats as the fuel to your energy, your body will be more inclined to burn stored fat.
  2. Thrive off consistent energy – Get off the roller coaster of sugar highs and lows. Train your body to convert fat cells into energy.
  3. Empower your body – By reducing inflammation, you’ll free up your immune system. Enjoy clearer skin and fewer ailments.
  4. Step up your fitness game – Exercising daily will improve mobility, agility, endurance, and strength. All it takes is 15 minutes.
  5. Get control of your blood sugar – Normalizing your blood sugar levels will help you eliminate the need for Type II Diabetes medications, just like I did! You can do it too!
  6. Become a Fat-Burning Beast – Retrain your body to burn fat instead of sugar. Eat high-fat, low-carb meals to get results.

The approach is simple – we will focus on identifying which foods are the right foods to eat and which foods should be avoided.

The food you’re going to eat is so easy to prepare that no recipes are necessary! With all the pictures and videos for your reference, you’ll be all set to go!

Whether you’re going Paleo (no dairy at all) or going Primal (only high-fat dairy, which is me), following this challenge will help you convert your body into a healthy, fat-burning machine. I lost 70 pounds eating this way – even with minimal exercising!

Here are 2 important points I’d like to make:

  1. 80% of your body composition success is directly related to the foods you eat. Eat the right foods and you’re golden!
  2. No amount of exercise can fix a bad diet.

Although most people do experience weight loss, that’s not what this challenge is all about. It’s about learning how to eat in a healthy and sustainable way that converts your body from using sugar to burning fat as the primary energy source. This change in food, combined with regular physical activity and healthy habits, will change your life, giving you higher energy levels throughout the day. Plus you can experience better skin, better sleep, and an overall better mood.

Let’s get started!

This 21-Day Primal Intro to the low-carb, high-fat way of eating puts a strong emphasis on choosing the right foods. Combined with a little exercise, this lifestyle will help reduce stress, improve sleep, and help shed those unwanted pounds!

I did 14 of these 21-Day Intros in 14 consecutive months, resulting in 70 lost pounds and getting off all my meds!

Food for Thought – There’s More to Being Primal than just Eating the Right Food!

There’s more to being Primal than just eating the right food!
The “other” Primal things I do besides Eating!

Get up and move
  • Walk – 3 to 4 hours of walking a week would be nice
  • Sprint once every 7 to 10 days. Six 20 second sprints followed by 30 seconds of rest. 5 minute warm up and 5 min cool down before and after. I do sprints on my bike to lower the impact. Sometimes I do them in the pool! Swimming sprints, not running sprints.
  • Play – Bike, play Tennis, swim, frisbee, badminton, basketball, tag, pickle ball, hike every now and then
  • Don’t sit and watch TV. Stand for a while. Move around. I’m a pro football addict! I’ve started watching the first game standing up and moving around. I record the second while I go for a walk or swim. Then DVR skipping the commercials. Better use of time!
  • If you have a desk job, get up once a least every 30 min and move around. Take a 10 minute break and walk in the parking lot. Or walk at lunch time. The point is, do something!
Sleep 8 hrs – And that really is sleep, not just time spent in bed! A FitBit Charge HR will not only track your heart rate and exercise, but it will also track your sleep! How do you get a good night’s sleep?
  • Eating right is a good start and that’s what this challenge is all about!
  • Staying up late watching TV or working on a computer is not good. The blue light from these devices emulate sunlight and your body will get confused and it will be harder to get a good night’s sleep. If you have to watch TV or work on the computer late, I suggest buying a pair of blue blocker sunglasses and wearing them while doing these types of things. I wear a pair over my regular glasses!
  • Don’t eat after 8pm. You want to give your gut time to digest, work and repair itself. It needs 12 hours to do this. If you sleep for 8 hours, you’ll need to not eat 2 hours before you go to bed and not eat until 2 hours after you get up. So, if you go to bed at 10pm, don’t eat anything after 8pm and don’t eat anything until 8am. The longer you can go, the better off your gut will be. As you get fat adapted, you’ll be able to go for longer periods of time without eating. So you may even be able to skip breakfast. Or you may be able to eat dinner at 5pm and not eat anything until 10am the next day. That’s 17 hours without eating anything! Sounds crazy, but I’m able to do that all the time and so will you! And you won’t be hungry! As you become fat adapted, the meals you eat will be more satisfying and, if you eat only when you’re hungry, there may be long periods of time between meals. So, you won’t have to eat 3 meals a day. Eat just when you’re hungry. Just not after 8pm!
  • Wear a sleep mask when going to bed to make things pitch black, it helps!

Get some Vitamin D
  • Sunbathing – 15 minutes and that’s in a bathing suit. Not just walking around outside with everything covered except your face! Hard to do in the winter!
  • Or take a Vitamin D supplement as directed when you can’t get direct sunlight. I live in Arizona and sometimes even here its hard to get sun day in and day out! Almost!
Reduce stress
  • Breathe deep, meditate, sit down and relax with no distractions, by yourself, chill out, look at the sunset, take a leisurely walk after dinner with your spouse, but don’t talk to each other, especially about work! Just take in the sights, sounds and smells of where you are at, you can talk to your pet because your pet won’t talk back! (Unless it’s a parrot!) Point is, you just want to relax and not think too much!
  • Play a board game or dominoes or chess with the TV off!
