    Your location: Stockholm, Sweden

    Age (If you want): 24

    How Primal are you: About 80-84.39% (the main thing keeping me at this low percentage is the proteinshakes mixed with some maltodextrin (starch, mainly to regain a small dosage of carbs after training). But I've dropped the grains (no pasta, no bread, no rice, no damn porrige for breakfeast anymore). I don't touch beans, legumes.

    Do you consume dairy: Seldom, but it happens (my protein is whey, and it's extracted from dairy if memory serves right).

    Do you drink coffee or tea: Coffee, and probably too much of it.

    Motivator for switching to Primal: It wasn't weight loss, nor weight gain. My motivator was to be what ever I can be. To eat as optimal as I can, and then going back to the roots seems to be the right way.

    Favorite exercise: Chins and pullups. But I'm a gym-rat at heart and the weather here in Sweden is only good for about 3 months.

    Favorite Primal food: All kinds of meat. Fatty meats, lean meats. One can never have enough meat.

    Best part about being Primal: Only been primal for about three weeks, but I feel healthier and I got more energy. And my stomach feels better.

    Worst part about being Primal: I am yet to discover that one. Well, maybe getting enouch cals. Oh eating out with friends and colleagues. Not that many primal alternatives out there, so I just go with the damn sallad.

    How Primal are you: Low/Moderate Carb since 5/1/2010. Just found your site and getting comfortable with the primal way of life

    Do you consume dairy: A little cheese - maybe one or two ounces a day.

    Do you drink coffee or tea: decaf every day (2 or 3 cups) and green tea (2 to 3 cups)

    Motivator for switching to Primal: Lost 25 pounds during May/June on a low carb (now at goal weight) and really loved the way I felt. Exploring various low carb "way-of-lives" and stumbled onto Primal. This seems to match the way my thoughts have been leaning. Pure foods, pure exercise.

    Favorite exercise: Runner (doing Chicago Marathon), walker, yoga (love yoga!), some weights but I much perfer body weight exercises and lifting.

    Favorite Primal food: eggs and almonds

    Best part about being Primal: I sleep like a dead person - very little dreaming anymore, No yawning in the afternoon, Great energy levels

    Worst part about being Primal: Having to keep say "no" to offers of cupcakes and icecream during office parties. Having to spend a lot more money on groceries than before.

    Age (If you want): 40

    How Primal are you: Just starting out this week and have cut the grains, I am currently working on cutting the sugars, and I still am using whey protein at the moment.

    Do you consume dairy: just from the remaining whey protein that I have, once it is gone I will be done I won't be purchasing anymore

    Do you drink coffee or tea: green and essiac tea

    Motivator for switching to Primal: one to lose some weight. Second is that I have been living with nasal polyps for the past 25 years. I want to see if eating a grain free diet has a positive change on them. (I will say that for whatever reasons I have cleared up a little bit, too early to say if this is a result of my diet changes)

    Favorite exercise: sprinting and body weight exercises

    Favorite Primal food: Pork

    Best part about being Primal: Cooking meals at home

    Worst part about being Primal: no white rice, but I have found raw cauliflower to be an excellent replacement. Other than that things are still too new for me to have any complaints at the moment

    Hi Ya'll. I'm Rebecca and I am working on becoming a primal gal.

    Your location: I live in Denton Texas

    Age (If you want): Ha! As if I would tell! Just kidding, I'm 32.

    How Primal are you: Brand new to this, so maybe at 60 to 65 percent so far.

    Do you consume dairy: Yes. Absolutely. No plans to give it up anytime soon.

    Do you drink coffee or tea: I kicked my morning coffee out the door because I had this horrible habit of drinking it with non-dairy creamer and sugar. I now drink hot tea.

    Motivator for switching to Primal: Fatigue, weak back, mood problems, can't keep up with kids and not happy with my life in general. I want to be vibrant and healthy, not old and breaking down. I don't want to watch myself fall apart.

    Favorite exercise: Right now, I'm liking the nice long, gentle walks. It feels good to get away from the no pain/no gain mentality. I'm looking foward to being able to resume more woodsy activities as I build my stamina. I've wanted to camp, hike, spend days at the lake with my kids but am often too tired.

    Favorite Primal food: Fat. I love eating foods slathered in real fats.

    Best part about being Primal: Knowing that I'm getting enough fruits and veggies. Not having a regimented fitness plan.

    Worst part about being Primal: It's really hard to get away from certain comfort foods. I'm from the deep south too, so I can't see myself swearing off grits, or cornbread or chicken and rice forever and ever. But I am happy to limit my consumption. This has also been really hard on my kiddos, and I'm trying hard to change "their" diet more slowly than mine. So far I'm proud of the progress that I have made for myself as well as what I have provided for them. This is also an expensive diet! Hopefully next spring I can get into a house with a backyard and have more than just a few pots of herbs and such.
