    Your location: Belfast, Northern Ireland

    Age (If you want): 40 (nearly 41!)

    How Primal are you: just started, mostly primal but still having porridge with water and salt (Oatmeal to Americans, I suppose) for breakfast

    Do you consume dairy: A little bit of milk in tea or coffee

    Do you drink coffee or tea: One (maybe two) coffees a day, the rest herbal

    Motivator for switching to Primal: I've gained weight and want to shift some...I have been kind of sugar addicted and want to break the pattern, plus I get tiredness jags with a lot of carbs, plus stomach problems.

    Favorite exercise: Strong and sweaty yoga!

    Favorite Primal food: Fillet steak

    Best part about being Primal: I'm not hungry anymore and I have more energy, and my digestive system feels a lot better, all this after only a few days!

    Worst part about being Primal: I miss pizza...And in the university where I work (no supermarkets nearby) lunch is pretty much carb (sandwich) based, so I have to prepare breakfasts and lunches before I go to work myself - it's a lot more labour intensive. Plus, fruit and meat are expensive here

    I picked up Mark's Primal Blueprint book a few months ago - it all makes perfect sense! I have stopped my futile Chronic Cardio efforts and started losing weight the proper way.


    Your location: Tri-Cities, WA

    Age : 53

    How Primal are you: I am ~85% down the path: Eating well but still migrating to better (organic/grassfed) sources; enjoying the workouts, playing, sleeping early.

    Do you consume dairy: some cheese (largely fermented)

    Do you drink coffee or tea: Lots of black coffee (3+ cups per day)

    Motivator: Weight control and improved strength. I've been doing the PB for ~2 months and have dropped 15 lbs - maybe halfway to my optimal weight.

    Favorite exercise: Cycling (easier to stay under 75% max HR)

    Favorite Primal food(s): chicken/salmon/walnuts/blueberries

    Best part about being Primal: Greatly reduced body (mainly back) aches

    Worst part about being Primal: There's no such thing as Guinness Lite!

    best part about being primal: KNOWING that it's right
    worst part: haven't gotten there yet.
