  • Hello from Virginia

    Hi, my name's Laurel and I'm from Christiansburg, Virginia
    I'm 43 years old
    I'm extremely Primal, I have a thyroid condition that prevents me from eating many foods.
    I eat primarily meat and fat and whatever appetite I have left is for vegetables.
    I am gluten free, grain free, dairy free
    I am sugar free, that includes honey and other Natural sweeteners
    Because of my hypoglycemia I don't eat fruit or high glycemic vegetables
    I love dairy, if I could consume it I would but my thyroid won't let me
    I cannot have any stimulants of any kind. That includes coffee and tea
    My treats to myself occasionally are herbal teas and sparkling water
    I tried all manner of treatments to help me recover from this thyroid problem but it wasn't until I changed my diet that I saw the most dramatic improvements in my health
    I still haven't recovered enough of my energy to exercise yet
    I LOVE FAT! And the thing is that I've lost weight and that wasn't my intention. I certainly didn't feel like I was depriving myself and the weight just melted off. I can't correctly convey how pleasantly surprised I was. And I eat a lot of fat, go figure.
    The best part about being primal is having more energy than I did before. Getting ones health back is priceless.
    There is no worst part about being primal. I don't have attachments to foods like normal people do so eating this way is fine for me.

      Hello Laurel,

      I'm also in Virginia. Glad Primal is working for you.
      I'm still adjusting a bit, but I'm liking it too. Still trying to find the right balance when it comes to fat. I don't really love greasy things, especially if it's a meat dish.

        thank you. yes, not only does eating primal make sense to me but my body's positive response is the real test.

          Where at in Virginia?
          It's to bad you don't care for fat, I'm sorry you have to struggle with that. I took to it right away and wonder now how I ever lived without it. I think it's the most delicious part of the meal. I wish you good luck.

            Thank you. I see you are from China. A different nationality living in China or Chinese living in China?

              Thanks for the encouragement. I'm sure I'll get the hang of it, I just have to figure out what works for me. :-)
              I totally agree that getting one's health back is priceless. I'm glad to have lot a little bit of weight, but the biggest difference is how much lighter I feel. Like walking a distance more than a few blocks isn't so much of a chore anymore.
