I live in San Antonio TX and wanted to see if there are others here who are also living the primal lifestyle?
There are a number of us at where I work (San Antonio tech firm you've probably heard of) - and the numbers seem to be growing. There are more and more crossfit folks, and the primal/paleo diet trend seems to be increasing as folks see our results.
I've been paleo for about a year, have lost probably in the neighborhood of 50 lbs of fat and increased lean mass by a few pounds.
Honestly, I have no idea of my loss/gains - I know I'm running between 45 and 50 pounds lighter than when I started, and my clothes continue to fit different even though my weight is the same now for 6 or so months and I'm a lot stronger - I also see a lot more muscle. All good stuff!
San Antonio is a pretty easy place for it - as long as you get over the constant barrage of tortillas! Guacamole is everywhere and great meat is simple to find.
Yes, Primal and live in SA! I joined the forum recently as well hoping to find Paleo/primals in the neighborhood. Welcome and if you ever need local support, you can always find me here. I often feel alone on this path because no one in my circle of friends and acquaintances understand the way i eat. It actually seems to stir up some controversy--never thought someone's food choices could make others so uncomfortable. I just chalked it up to living in San Antonio (it's certainly not Austin). Hope it's going well for you!
Haven't been to the forums in some time, but found this thread searching for "primal" day cares. I'm in SA and have been eating primal/paleo for the past 4-5 yrs. My wife started about 3-4 yrs back and our daughter as eaten this way since birth, 2yrs this September.
