I am new to the site and PB lifestyle. I stumbled upon it about 4 days ago and it sucked me in. It was exactly what I was looking for in my life. I went out and grabbed the book after locating it at a 'Barns and Noble' about 2 1/2 hrs away from my local B&N. I could have ordered it online and waited for its arrival but that is not the type of person I am...lol. Think of all that valuable reading time that would have passed. I am very impressed by the great people (at least what they appear to be) on MDA. I look forward to talking with all of you and learning from your insight to this lifestyle. I have read the book twice and have committed to starting today. I took the 'Obligatory forum Introduce yourself thread' and introduced myself to all of you:
Your location:SLC, UT
Age (If you want):24
How Primal are you: Just started, So in the context of this community I would say ZERO. But I learned a while ago to fake it till you make it, so, I will say that I am "primal" seeing how its in my bloodline
Do you consume dairy: Yes, and most likely will always
Do you drink coffee or tea: Yes, I plan to stop drinking in the near future. It's a bit further down on my list of improvements I am making towards my diet.
Motivator for switching to Primal: Obviously it is to improve my health and quality of life. I also am the carb only eater that is what Mark calls "skinny fat", I desperately want to change my body composition to an all around athletic build.
Favorite exercise: I would have to say Wake Boarding, I hope to soon expand that to many other activities.
Favorite Primal food: "kahh" a Cambodian soup like dish containing beef and hard boiled eggs.
Best part about being Primal: We will have to see.
Worst part about being Primal: I guess its changing my current habits, but the knowledge the book gave me should be sufficient enough to start achieving my goals.
I need to know if I should start the physical side of PB or if I need to give my body a couple weeks to get used to the diet before I start? Currently I have the 'Slow Pace' down (lucky for me about 20 hrs of that at work) but have not 'Lifted Heavy Things' in a while.
