My Primal Benefits

A commenter asked me what I found to be the greatest benefits as a woman doing Primal eating. I started to post a long answer in the comments and then I decided I'd also like to do a post. Not all of these benefits are exclusive to females, of course.

Benefit 1: I keep my curves. The first time I consciously tried to lose weight I went on a no fat whatsoever diet. Yes, I was young and stupid. Moving on. I got skinny, but I also had NO breasts/ass. Not fun. For some reason, eating Primal, I stay lean but I keep my curves=happy Cavewoman :)

Benefit 2: Fabulous hair/nails/skin. Oh yes, I have a nice sleek coat, nails I can open soda cans with, and a healthy glow. I never wear make up. Now granted, that's partly because I don't like make up. But I like having the option instead of feeling like I need to have something on my face to be presentable.

Benefit 3: I get to eat yummy food. No, I really don't miss Snickers, baguettes, and fries. I get to eat cheese, bacon, omelettes, chicken skin, ribs, burgers, etc. I have REAL cream in my coffee. I have dark chocolate for dessert, or strawberries, or a green tea protein smoothie (raw milk, matcha powder, stevia, whey protein, dash of vanilla, ice.)

Benefit 4: I don't stress about food. I was definitely one of those Type A calorie counting wonders. I can still tell you how many calories are in most food items. Now I just eat what is nourishing, eat until I am full, and leave it at that. Sure, I do have the urge to stress eat sometimes (see post below) but the moments are easily controlled because my blood sugar is always nice and level. As many Primal followers have noted, they can fast effortlessly, and I find that I can easily skip dinner or lunch some days no problem.

Benefit 5: Less severe PMS/cramps. Sorry boys, this may be TMI for you. My moods are much more even, I don't break out, and my cramps are much better. Not gone, mind you, but better.

I'm not perfect. I drink a fair bit, and I sometimes make less than optimal choices. I would encourage all of us not to let the perfect be the enemy of the good. I am very happy just getting right MOST of the time, and I would wager that most other would be too.

Totally agree on benefits 3-5!

I have to say I wish I had to worry about #1! :)

Have a great day!

I agree! I also noticed that I used to have deep fissures in a few of my fingernails that would split deep into the nail bed. But since I've gone primal I don't have that issue. I suspect it was a wheat allergy.

That's interesting about the PMS, I just posted a question on the caveman forum about how paleo/primal can affect it. My last one was a nightmare (after being paleo for 2 or 3 months and previously a vegetarian/vegan for 10+ years), I was sore for days, narky and my IBS flared up really badly. Normally I'm only a bit sore for a day and in a really good mood, no grumpiness at all. I'd be interested to hear what others have found with theirs! I thought it might be the iron, if it happens again I might taper my red meat in the week running up and focus on fish and see if that helps...
I blog my paleo adventures here if you're interested btw:

I agree you've a great style to your writing, it's great fun to read! I'm linking you up to my blog if you don't mind, it's great to find some other primal ladies :)
Take care,

Hello! I'm loving your blog. I've become much more curious about eating in a more primal style, since I've realized sugar makes me spazzy. I don't think I noticed it as much before because I used to be very overweight, so it took more sugar to mess with me. Now trim but not quite where I want to be in terms of physique, this was a startling discovery. It's great that going Primal has worked so well for you!
