I joined a few days ago and I have really enjoyed reading a lot of forum posts. I bought and read the Primal Blue Print in two days, breaking the rule about getting adequate sleep, mostly because I was so interested in it! I was a raw vegan for over a year and found myself underweight and showing symptoms of anorexia, physical and mental. Unfortunately, I swung too far in the other direction trying to get back to "normal" and got pretty unhealthy on SAD. I am a certified pastry chef so a cupcake here and there became a daily routine, BIG mistake!
I'm hopeful for the ways the primal lifestyle will help me get things back in order. Plus, I really hate running, hard core, so any life plan that discourages it is a-okie-dokie with me!
Oh, thats a funny one, I work outside of Atlanta, spend my weekends in the backwoods and alternately sleep in different suburban areas in Georgia... I go a lot of places any given week, sleep in a lot of beds (alone).
