Default Anyone up for a 30 day 80/20 Primal challenge?

I enjoy Primal. I eat bacon, lose weight and feel great. But too often, my inner fat chick rebels against the carb restrictions. I'd like to develop a habit, or rather inhabit a lifestyle that encourages my skinny chick and fat chick to live in harmony.

As such, I'd like to embrace the 80/20. Anyone else game?

I'm open to format, but my initial thought is to count actual meals. For every four meals that are Primal pure, we've one meal that can be Primal diluted - but with full disclosure as to the dilution to keep the fat chick honest.

Thoughts?

Speaking for myself I can never do one diet in its entirety. I have to customize my diet into what I think is important. For example I love the primal blueprint but I'm not willing to give up legumes. I fully understand the low-carb diet but I'm not willing to part ways with pasta forever. There has to be flexibility otherwise it leads to binging. I can't swear off foods, but I do my best to limit and avoid. So do what you have to do, there is no Primal Police that is going to stop you. As long as you feel good and lose weight then go for it.

Binges do not signify a lack of willpower or inability to care for yourself. On the contrary, binges are a urgent attempt to care for yourself when you feel uncared for. They are the voice of survival. Binges are the mark of the self that says, 'I am tired of feeling deprived, of being told I am wrong, that I am bad." - Geneen Roth
