So this post is for my grandmother (hi, Mana!) who is unfamiliar with the Primal Blueprint.
I don't have a lot of time to discuss all the good points, so I thought I would cheat and post a link:
Mark Sisson is the developer (if you will) of the Primal "diet" and runs the website, Mark's Daily Apple, which offers a wealth of information about the Primal Blueprint. Click this to get to his website!
I have been asked a few times "how is Primal different than Atkins?" ... below is taken from Mark's website:
"...Weight loss success on the Atkins diet is well chronicled, but experts believe that the diet can lead to nutritional deficiencies, likely from inadequate fruit and vegetable intake and perhaps also from the indiscriminate intake and lack of quality distinction among protein and fat foods (including the license to enjoy fried foods and other offensive dietary choices)."
Also, with Atkins you can still eat a lot of processed items, such as "low-carb wraps" and low-carb candies, and such. Primal really focuses on trying to get the processed food out of your life and filling your body with wholesome ingredients, many Primal eaters try to find foods that are organic, locally grown, without hormones, and grass-fed beef.
If you have a more concise article, explanation, video that talks about the difference between the two ways of eating, post it in the comments!
Oh, and Mana, the photo of the cuts of beef is *not* my photo. The food photos I was telling you about was of a salad, which has since been changed, and fruit (still in the right hand side of the blog).
