  • Hello from NH!

    Hey all!

    I'm Liz, 22 from NH. Thru high school I was always slenderish- 5'5'' (and 3/4). and weighing in at about 135. Once I turned 21, I went thru a break-up, started an amazing job as a RN (now working the night shift which I love!), and also learned that I love alcohol more than when it was illegal to drink. Shockingly enough, I gained 35lbs in a year topping out at 169 this past September. I tried some fad diets and some extreme working out and would lose ten, gain ten. This past March, I bought and used Hcg diet drops (and ate strictly 500kcal/day for a month) and lost 23 lbs. I now float around in the 140's. I'm not taking any more drops, and I want to be healthy! And I found MDA!. So I'm off and primal!

    I love real foods (and cheez-its.. but I digress). Meat, dairy, veggies, fruits, nuts = YUM! I also hunt and (try to) garden. I've worked on farms my whole life and while I don't believe in "Organic" (go to an 'organic' farm and see what nonsense gets sprayed on your food), I am all about local! and "eating your view".

    I love trying new things and foods (I'd try bugs and blood at least once!)

    I'd love to hear if anyone else if from NH, or has any helpful ideas!

    -Liz

                  I used to spend every summer in Gilford. It's my happy place.

                    New to NH but will ever be a Bostonian. Waiting for some warm weather to coincide w/ a day off to get some use out of my shiny new beach parking sticker. Pea soup fog tonight.

                    Any specific recommendations for farms given your experience?

                      My grandpa used to take me to a family farm not far from Laconia. I don't remember the name of it, but it was beautiful, and they knew all their customers by name. Can't tell you how many mornings I spent as a kid helping my grandpa pick fresh strawberries.

                      I think it might be this, but don't count me on it

                        Hey everyone- I've been reading this website for a year or so and been 98% primal since Jan 2012. I'm on the Seacoast and have been thinking that, as the Winter approaches, it would be cool to have a NH Primal Meetup so we can get a shot of motivation and support going into the long, dark days. I've been getting a lot of remarks on my transformation in the last year, but when people hear how I did it, I get the CW/SAD eye roll. I'm cool with that, they are welcome to keep rockin' the wheat belly. No evangelism here! But it would be cool to meet some others who speak "Grok". Cheers!

                            Hey Rob, thanks for touching base. I'm in Newmarket. As to meetup, I don't know, really. Something primal like a barefoot trail hike with a primal potluck at the trailhead? Just a thought. Open to any and all ideas...
