  • Your location: Kuopio, Finland

    Age (If you want): 35

    How Primal are you: Maybe 70-80%

    Do you consume dairy: Yes, mostly cheeses

    Do you drink coffee or tea: Both, and also yerba mate

    Motivator for switching to Primal: I like to test things out, and primal seemed like testworthy way of living.

    Favorite exercise: Weight training at the gym, mostly doing heavy compound exercises, some hyperthrophy in the mix also.

    Best part about being Primal: Not getting hungry pretty much ever. Very liberating. Oh and not getting crashes during/after training long time, felt like superman after fat-adaptation and a longer fasted jog where I before would've crashed half-way.

    Worst part about being Primal: Trying to dodge empty carbs is inconvenient because they are everywhere and it gets tedious to eat with friends etc.

          In other forums I've been a member of in the past - at least for small communities - there's been a 'introduce yourself' thread with some questions that people can answer. I know that there are people reading this forum that are fully primal, partially primal, and are considering it. I thought that I'd put some questions together to cover these things just to get an idea of who's out there.

          The Questions:That's a good place to start

          Your location:Ontario

          Age (If you want): nope, My Kids are part graduated, and part still in high school if that's hint enough

          How Primal are you: not very (but that's about to change for health reasons)

          Do you consume dairy: yes

          Do you drink coffee or tea: mix of everything, coffee in the morning, peppermint tea mid day and camomile in the evening

          Motivator for switching to Primal: my son was diagnosed with esoinphilic esophagitis (and I've got it too)

          Favorite exercise: water sking, hiking, my dogs

          Favorite Primal food: Salads and all the many different kinds

          Best part about being Primal: simplicity

          Worst part about being Primal: aromas of things I should not eat.
          Thank-you for welcoming me and I look forward to sharing


          • Your location: I live in Brasschaat near Antwerp, Belgium. Nationality is Dutch.

            Age (If you want): 51

            How Primal are you: Right now... very.

            Do you consume dairy: Nope.

            Do you drink coffee or tea: 1 Cup of organic coffee a day and a pot of green tea a day.

            Motivator for switching to Primal: I got hit with some severe cholesterol issues when I was 42. The treating doctor said I would not make it to 50 unless I went on statins and changed my diet and lifestyle. I opted out of taking statins, instead looking for alternatieves. I went vegan for years and managed to bring my cholesterol down really nicely really quickly. I am always looking at sites about nutrition and have read a ton of books on the subject. The latest research on cholesterol made me look at things differently. Although it was really hard and going against the grain (pun intended) of everything I held to be true I started on the Primal journey two weeks ago.

            Favorite exercise: Currently it is still excessive and obsessive cardio. I am having a real difficult time changing that. Starting Monday....

            Favorite Primal food: Beef, Fish and Salads.

            Best part about being Primal: Can I let you know in a month or three once I have had my blood work done?

            Worst part about being Primal: See answer above.

              Motivator for switching to Primal: I have recently lost 160 pounds on a low carb, low fat, moderate protein weight loss program and I am researching a way of eating that will allow me to maintain that loss for the rest of my life.

              • Hi guys!

                Primal Health Coach but honestly don't adhere stringently to Primal principles. I do eat dairy in limited amounts and on occasion eat bread. (Can't pass up Middle Eastern naan!). Been listening to Primal Blueprint for 6 years.
                Location: San Antonio, TX
                Age: 43
                Consume Green Tea
                Formerly overweight kid. Lost 100 lbs. over 25 years ago and kept it off. Started Naturopathic Earth, a website and podcast dedicated to exposing food/household toxins and embrace paleo/clean eating principles. Have popular podcast "Confessions of an Obese Child" which helps current/former overweight children deal with the trauma of growing up overweight. Also, have NPE Radio pod which covers the aforementioned toxin info. Love Mark and all things Primal!

                  im not totally primal but really trying. Just have to give up that daily 70% chocolate
