    2. Kosher meat is expensive!!! 3. Where do I find kosher fat? Getting the bison is hard enough as it is.

    Your location: CA

    Age (If you want): 39, soon to be 40

    How Primal are you: I was honestly surprised that I had been doing a lot of Primal Living - but just mixing up the bad so I wasn't really taking full advantage. So... 75%?

    Do you consume dairy: I'm lactose intolerant too, but I occasionally like some cheese.

    Do you drink coffee or tea: Coffee. But not that "hey look I'm buying coffee in a coffee shop so I must be cool" kind of candy coffee.

    Motivator for switching to Primal: I've had to face the fact that I'm pushing 40 soon, and I'm starting to feel myself slowing down. Which is bad because I won't be able to enjoy the things I do enjoy about my life, unless I take better care of myself.

    Favorite exercise: I dislike exercise for exercise's sake, but I do get to do some running, and some hiking done. And when I can, some swimming as well.

    Favorite Primal food: Bacon is always good. And steak. Please tell me venison counts?

    Best part about being Primal: Meat and potatoes? Are you kidding me? What's not to like?

    Worst part about being Primal: I used to be into a lot of chocolate bars, and sweets.
    Is deer hunting considered primal living?

    Potatoes?

    The Questions:


    Your location: NYC

    Age (If you want): You can't be serious.

    How Primal are you: Pretty much, for the last month or so

    Do you consume dairy: Trying to cut down.

    Do you drink coffee or tea: Morning coffee, with milk

    Motivator for switching to Primal: Gluten-free led me to it

    Favorite exercise: Biking

    Favorite Primal food: Rib-eye!

    Best part about being Primal: Improvement in problems I know are inflammatory - rosacea, sinus problems, general random swelling.

    My question: I have read much of this site prior to posting, including your research threads. I was led here after reading Gary Taubes' GCBC. My question: What is the problem with potatoes, aside from increased insulin? I can renounce grains, having left gluten behind six months ago with no regrets. Dropping the rest of the grain world has not so far been difficult. But why can't I have potatoes, aside from too much carbs/too much insulin? Are potatoes truly as detrimental as grains?

    Thanks in advance, and I'd like to thank all of your for the extremely informative posts here. I've been bookmarking links all night.

    The Questions:


    Your location:

    Chicago, IL

    Age (If you want):

    38

    How Primal are you:

    Started 5 days ago and have had 0 grains or refined sugars. Hope to keep this permanent so that I can declare 100% primal.

    Do you consume dairy: yes, goat milk with coffee, raw butter.

    Do you drink coffee or tea: Organic decaf.

    Motivator for switching to Primal:

    Have been eating along the principles of Weston Price Fdn. for a few years so had the whole pasture rasied protien, raw dairy, few grains, no processed foods, etc...down pretty good but was still eating grains, beans, and sugar. Due to dermitis, decided to give up grains and sugar and found this website the next day. Bought the book and I'm totally onboard now. It was an easy switch since I was 80% of the way there already.

    Favorite exercise: Walking

    Favorite Primal food: Anything with raw butter, coconut oil or milk.

    Best part about being Primal: Losing weight and feeling great!

    Worst part about being Primal:
