Sleep/Rest: circa 5 1/2 hours sleep

Play: Went for a walk

Sunlight: Yes.

Avoid trauma: Yes.

Avoid Poisons: The hoisin sauce that accompanied the duck at the Chinese restaurant would have had lots of poisons but ate it anyway. Still I did better than Primal Man who also ate a couple of pancakes and a little white rice. Menu stated that the restaurant doesn’t use MSG in their dishes so some consolation.

Use your mind:

    • Blogged
    • Socialising – visited our friend Richard Small in North Devon. Richard was very excited as he has just had a book of his short stories, “I Want To Tell You A Story…”, published by Edward Gaskell of Devon. Thanks for our copy Richard!

Primal Challenge (avoid using p.c. after 7pm): Yes.

Anne’s Primal Challenge (100-up): Yes.


Richard was impressed with the changes to our physical appearance since he last saw us and the increased energy levels and feelings of well-being that we told him that we have experienced since adopting the Primal Blueprint. Our friend was keen to learn about our new lifestyle as he has a paunch which he would like to be rid of and would like to feel and be healthier! So we spent quite some time over the weekend discussing the Primal Lifestyle. His first effort at preparing a primal meal was to knock up a ham salad for us at lunch time. He took us out for a Chinese meal in the evening and allowed us to choose the dishes that we ate. This allowed us to show him that he wouldn’t have to give up some of his favourite eating places if he turned primal but that he just needed to choose his dishes with awareness. We did allow him some white rice and to eat a couple of pancakes with the duck. I list the dishes that we ate above so you can see that it is possible to have a banquet even on a Primal diet. There are no seafood dishes listed not because they were unsuitable but because our friend doesn’t eat seafood.

    There’s always a welcome awaiting you primal creatures in North Devon. I love the new diet … after our grilled breakfast, and carvery meal I later tucked in to a banana I hunted down in the kitchen as I built strength to cook those sausages, the last of the tomatoes and a couple of eggs. I can see why this plan makes you feel so good. I have used my brain too . . . I cooked all of the sausages which gave me a small tide me over snack and then put the others in the fridge … just in case I embark on a hunting trip in the night … yes this is the way to live … now more than ever I want to live longer … and I’ve only been on the plan for one day. My thanks and best wishes, Richard.
