Hello, Everyone New here and just started being primal today. I watch a spin off documentary called "Fat Head" and then I started to research insulin and body fat. That lead me to this site so I've decided to give it a go.

Do you consume dairy: Right now I still drink milk but trying to stay away from it that and cheese too.

[B]Your location[/B]: Chicago, IL
[B]Age[/B] (If you want): 33
[B]How Primal are you[/B]: 100%, decided this was the path I wanted to take, and cleaned out the house and stocked it with all good stuff. No processed foods, no Dairy, no grains. Nothing!
[B]Do you consume dairy[/B]: Not anymore
[B]Do you drink coffee or tea[/B]: There is a limit to how far I can go. I must have my coffee and Tea!
[B]Motivator for switching to Primal[/B]: In the course of 6 months I was promoted, quit smoking, and had a friend tell me I looked like I was gaining weight. The promotion means almost no physical labor anymore. after 12 years of being a construction worker to now having 23 years left of being a supervisor, I had to make a change in my life. I don't want to be 500lbs and die a week after retiring (if I would have made it that far). Quitting smoking added to the weight gain, and being called out on it flipped a switch in my head. I have to change. I have to lose this weight, build my strength and start living life to the fullest!
[B]Favorite exercise[/B]: I really enjoy walking and bike riding. I shoot Compeititon pistol, and Multigun, which involve a lot of running ad shooting. I'm hoping to improve my skills as part of this lifestyle change.
[B]Favorite Primal food[/B]:Meat! I'm not picky, I like food. Bacon is a large plus, and so are brussel sprouts.
[B]Best part about being Primal[/B]:knowing that I can still eat, and still be healthy. Knowing that the further along I get, the better I will feel.
[B]Worst part about being Primal[/B]: Giving up real Pizza :( there is just no grain free, dairy free way to reproduce it.
