    [QUOTE=timconradinc;280]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:


    Your location:Qc Canada

    Age (If you want):31

    How Primal are you: I tried to be primal all the time, except for wrkt

    Do you consume dairy: Sometimes, but it's not the center piece of my food plan

    Do you drink coffee or tea: Only coffee before training, and 2-3 green teas per day

    Motivator for switching to Primal: health and energy level

    Favorite exercise: chin-up

    Favorite Primal food: Meat and eggs

    Best part about being Primal: I' m no more a food slave. I can fast or skip a meal without problem

    Worst part about being Primal: People think i'm crazy to not eat grain. So now I lie to someone and say i'm allergic to grain or gluten

    I am 67 yrs YOUNG, from Yuma, Tennessee, 30 miles from Jackson, TN and just stated Primal 4 weeks ago.

    No dairy, but we do drink black coffee & unsweet green tea.

    Motivation: 220 lbs, 40 lbs of belly fat. We exercise at the gym 3 days a week, treadmill + elliptical cardio, and 1/2 hour weight training. We are still learning the Primal Foods, so no favorites yet.

    Rapid weight loss averaging 1 to 2 lbs a week and no downsides.

    We have given up trying to help others lose weight because they all think we are NUT JOBS to give up bread, cereals, grains & soda pop. They just don't want to hear such BLASPHEMY. Tennessee is one of the most OBESE states in the USA. Watching people enter Wal Mart is like looking at an OBESE parade. 3 out of 4 are overweight !

    Do a GOOGLE of "Slow Burn Exercise" for our latest exercise discovery.
    * Dr. William Davis Explains: - Train with heavier weights, taking 4 to 10 seconds
    In a nutshell, it is the slow, methodical use of weight resistance until the muscle is exhausted. It involves slow movement--e.g., 5 seconds for a lat pulldown from top to bottom--repeated until exhaustion using a heavier weight that allows, 6 repetitions over a 60-second effort.

    Hi All,

    I guess I should really add myself into this thread!

    Here goes...

    our location: London

    Age (If you want): 31

    How Primal are you: 99% [with a relapse in July/August that got me down to 70%] But back on it now 100% - The 99% is from eating out and not being sure if the oil is EVOO or any additions that may be slipped in by chef/friends.

    Do you consume dairy: I have to stay away! After the 30 day I will allow myself some non pasteurized. I love Goat cheese and manchego

    Do you drink coffee or tea: Tea; green tea I LOVE

    Motivator for switching to Primal: Weight gain and family history of diabeties, heart problems, Glucoma [sp], depression

    Favorite exercise: Swimming and walking. Me and exercise sont have a great relationship so trying to fix that

    Favorite Primal food: Oh so many. Rib eye [rare], lamb, avacado, bacon, roast pork... stop me, I could go on.

    Best part about being Primal: Eating what you want, when you want. Feeling AMAZING, skin improvement, digestive, emotional, eye-sight!, so much

    Worst part about being Primal: Realizing how many years you have pumped so much SHIT into your body. Literally being addicted to crap so bad that you suffer physical pain and never thinking that feeling crap was related to the food you are told are good for you [or thinking it and not wanting it to be true and feeling like a doughnut for it!]

    Your location: Texas

    Age: 41

    How Primal are you: 4th week, about 80%

    Do you consume dairy: yes, i love cheese and milk

    Do you drink coffee or tea: yes, both, plain, no sugar or cream

    Motivator for switching to Primal: I'm not sure I am "Primal" yet. My initial motivator to cut out beans and grains (which was my formerly one of favorite meals: beans and rice, with lots of salsa & peppers) was Joe Friehl's Paleo for Athletes. I found this website via MTBR.com on a thread about Paleo & cycling. In the first 2 wks, I've realized that no grains is good for me, and by now, 4wks later, I am really feeling better - no mood changes, no afternoon sleepiness, overall a little more energy.

    Favorite exercise: Cycling (road & offroad), and jogging in VFFs

    Favorite Primal food: Guacamole and canned herring (not together!)

    Best part about being Primal: My energy level seems more even throughout the day & I like losing the bloat!

    Worst part about being Primal: I miss my morning blueberry waffle! And giving up corn tortillas has made me a bit sad. Honestly, i haven't yet been able to give up beer.

    The Questions:

    Your location: Sacramento, CA

    Age (If you want): 29

    How Primal are you: 95% now (have been 50%-80% for the past year)

    Do you consume dairy: Not right now (1-2 month experiment for acne)

    Do you drink coffee or tea: Tea sometimes, no coffee (stomach can't handle it after high school espresso abuse of 4-8 shots a night)

    Motivator for switching to Primal: Major digestive issues (daily nausea, IBS symptoms), weight loss, getting healthy for future pregnancies/nursing

    Favorite exercise: weight lifting and dancing -- went to many Ska/Punk shows in high school and that was the best workout.

    Favorite Primal food: BAS!! I make a pretty crack-ish BAS

    Best part about being Primal: Feeling full but not bloated and sick/sleepy after a hearty meal

    Worst part about being Primal: Cooking everything from scratch! I absolutely love to cook and am pretty good/creative, but sometimes I just want to order/pick-up something once a week and knowing that most things out there are made with bad oils, hidden sugars and starches, and crappy quality base foods, just makes it unappealing. My crockpot is getting more and more use now because of the convenience factor!
