We are not on a diet, we made a lifestyle change, living more healthy and happy. Lost weight, look good and feel great. No more being bloathed and tired. Did not know how about i was feeling until i started feeling so good.

The reason I took of a star is due to a mistake that has been made (at least in the edition I have), which can be confusing and misleading to people who are confused about the metric system.
The protein requirement conversions are wrong.. E.g. 0.7g of protein per pound of body weight equals 1.4g per kg of weight and not 0.33 as stated in the book.
So a year down the line, and it has been a great move for me, yes I have fallen off the wagon a few times and when I have, I have really noticed it! My mood will be lower if I eat a lot of sugar or processed foods. For me there have been so many benefits of eating primal, I have lost weight, been able to maintain my weight easier, I rarely get ill and I no longer fight the dreaded bloat. Oh, and my skin got so much better, I think some of my wrinkles actually went away! Not only that but the book is really easy to read and the principles include more than just food changes. It's a real lifestyle change, which includes barefoot, crossfit, sprinting every now and then and walking more, getting out in the sun. I have studied sports science and have always known that walking is great for burning fat. It's a brilliant read and it provides real solutions, they may not all be that easy to integrate into your life, it might take a little effort, but it's worth it.
Not just a prescriptive list of what one must eat and do in order to follow the primal blueprint, but explanations as to exactly why grains, legumes etc are so bad, with plenty of basis in science and references to academic peer reviewed articles and journals.
The only reason I didn't give this 5 stars is because I did find it a bit dry at times, not what I've come to expect from Mark Sisson's writing.
