Top 5 Mistakes People Make When Going Primal

1. Confusing Primal with Paleo

What is the Primal Lifestyle and How it Can Change Your Life Forever?

Recently you have probably heard the term “Primal” used, most often interchangeably with “Paleo.” You might know a little Primal Power Method Manabout Paleo, but is it the same as Primal? If not, what are the differences between the two.

Primal – Is based on the Paleo diet, but with some tweaks and philosophical differences. The primary difference is that Primal is not a diet, but a lifestyle. It is the more holistic approach to health encompassing mind, body and sole. Primal is the melding of our ancient ways of eating, movement and engaging in mindfulness.
