My first foray into evolutionary eating came in the form of a six week trial of Mark Sisson‘s Primal Blueprint.

I had great results, and fell head-over-heels in love. (As an aside, the phrase “head over heels” has always bothered me because my head is almost always over my heels! Except, of course, during handstand push-ups. I’m sure I’m not alone in taking objection to this particular idiom.)

I highly recommend a similar trial protocol for those considering a diet of any kind. Tracking my intake kept me aware of what I was eating (you don’t need to do it forever), and blogging about it made me feel accountable (and unearthed a passion for writing I didn’t know I had). Feel free to call it an “F6W” – it’ll look great written below your stunning before and after pic.
