  • Greetings from Germany!

    Hi everyone! My name is Amber, and I am a US student studying abroad in Germany. I am really excited to start this new lifestyle (which I have attempted before, but never really stuck to) because I have seen my energy level drop when I eat carbohydrates, as well as acne and body pains flare up for the same reason. Since I have been in Germany, I have been eating so much bread, pastries, and potatoes (it is a way of life over here!). I am now 21 and close to graduating, and it just feels like the precise moment in my life when I should start developing permanent good habits!

    My goals are to drop excess fat from my body (about 40 pounds over a period of time), become more athletic (I am very interested in beginning running and capoeira!), and generally just having a better sense of self confidence and a kinder self-image (I, like many, have struggled with diets and my weight since a very young age).

    Just wanted to say it is great to be making this commitment and I hope to befriend some fellow Primal people here!

    Welcome Amber. Best of luck.
    Disclaimer: I eat 'meat and vegetables' ala Primal, although I don't agree with the carb curve. I like Perfect Health Diet and WAPF Lactofermentation a lot.

    TQP: I find for me that nutrition is much more important than what I do in the gym.

        I was in Munich for one month and I totally fell in love with this city! What a beauty... It is true that carbs are a staple there (Wimmer was the 'sweet' reason for putting 8 pounds). I overindulged in dairies, breads (oh, pretzel...), sweets and chocolates (a lot of variety). It is a real challenge to be primal there!
