Your location: East Lansing, MI
Age (If you want): 24
How Primal are you: Mostly primal. Try not to consume grains (maybe once a week), usually some sort of rice product if I do. Organic eggs, half grassfed meat, fruits, veggies, nuts, seeds, and good fats (including oils, yum!). Dairy...
Do you consume dairy: yes, it is my weakness.
Do you drink coffee or tea: both, mostly tea.
Motivator for switching to Primal: I was living a raw food lifestyle for over a year, missed my meat, and simply got a little bored and worn down. I heard about Primal Blueprint on a flight to Australia. The lady next to me had been living this way for well over a year. She told me about the book (while I ate hers and my dinner roll haha). I got back from my trip, started reading the book, and decided THIS is what I was looking for when I began my raw food journey. I began that journey in an attempt to recover from years (14) of struggling with an eating disorder (developed when I was 9). It helped me greatly to look at food as fuel and not as the enemy. For that I am grateful!
Favorite exercise: all, but if I must choose: sprints, kettlebell, or a good long distance run (once in a while). Oh and pilates and cardio power yoga.
Favorite Primal food: nuts, spinach, dark chocolate almond bark.
Best part about being Primal: not counting calories and feeling strong.
Worst part about being Primal: I love explaining it to people but hate how they think Im crazy. Then they attempt to argue how you are supposed to have grain in your diet. (These experiences are very similar to when I was eating raw).
