I might try it someday. My wife is pregnant, so now is a bad time. Currently on the IIFYM diet, which is fine for body composition and weight, but primal sounds interesting for overall health.
What if courts or PDAs become corrupt,criminal, etc?

I'm 8 days in and feeling great. i can tell already the hardest part is finding sources of natural/organic foods so that I am never tempted to eat a barcode again!
I tend to err on the side of a more raw foods lifestyle as opposed to primal.
Paleo here. I find my grass fed meats at the local food coop. All the bad press about saturated fats is a lie. Your brain needs sat. fats to function properly.
Cholesterol will actually go down.

Atkins died when he fell on the ice and whacked his head on the sidewalk. Besides, Primal is not Atkins.
Carbohydrates are not required in the human diet AT ALL. The Inuit traditionally had a virtually carb-free diet and did fine, thank you.
You are basing your position on bad data and government propaganda. The relationship between dietary cholesterol and blood cholesterol levels is insignificant. Your body MAKES cholesterol if the blood level falls too low because cholesterol is an essential substance for many bodily needs. If you have too much cholesterol it is an indicator of inflammation. But lipitor is the largest selling drug in Big Pharma's catalog, so the big money is on "treating" cholesterol levels.
Cardiovascular disease is an INFLAMMATORY illness. If you have arterial plaques it is because the walls of your blood vessels are being damaged by chronic inflammation. It does relate to diet, but not because of cholesterol or fat levels in food. Rather, it is the inflammatory effects of bad diet that cause cardiovascular disease.
If you want to talk about what causes chronic, systemic inflammation, we can do that. Here's a hint: it ISN'T dietary saturated fat.

I currently eat primal about 70 percent of the time, but I do cheat quite often because of my love of alchohol. However; about a year ago I went full on primal for about 3.5 months. Shed a ridiculous amount of weight. I just eat primal enough now to ensure I do not gain the weaight back. All in all a great life style, but I unfortunately am just a weak willed human.

Eating refined carbs like sugar and white flour are not good for you, not in any way.
vegetables, whole grains and other carbs that don't spike your insulin levels are great for your body. Particularly vegetables which are antioxidant rich.
as far as primal goes, my biggest concern is that very high protein diets have been connected to high rates of cancer and disease whereas you see the exact opposite in raw food diets.
