    Do you drink coffee or tea: Coffee with whole milk

    Motivator for switching to Primal: Just felt tired all the time and hit a fitness plateau 5'11, 195, 15%bf. Started researching organic foods and found the paelo diet. Kept researching and found my way here. Down to 185 now and you can see my abs and lost no strength... gotta love it.

    Favorite exercise: Pushup

    Favorite Primal food: Beef on the grill

    Best part about being Primal: Eating the things I love and getting ripped doing it.

    Worst part about being Primal: Trying to get the people who watch my son (mom, inlaws, etc) to understand I don't want him eating macaroni and cheese with potato chips and soda for dinner.

    How Primal are you: somewhat. I have been following Atkins (the correct way, with lots of veggies and not so much bacon) since the middle of April. I have realized my nutritional goals on Atkins line up with those on this site, so I am going to try to add in the exercise and all that. I can't afford to get organic food, or grassfed beef, just yet, but when things look up financially that will be something I do also.

    Do you consume dairy: Yes, but less than I did before.

    Do you drink coffee or tea: Unsweetened iced tea, green or black, when I don't want water. Which let me tell you is a real PITA to find in the south.

    Motivator for switching to Primal: I noticed how much better I felt on Atkins, but I hadn't forced myself to make the jump to the fact that I wouldn't ever be able to eat grains again even when I was maintaining. Now, after reading all the good reasons, it makes sense. After reading the rest of the lifestyle, I thought I should give it a go, but I've been making small changes since I know that will be better for me than trying to do it over night. I know I'll quit if I do that.

    Favorite exercise: Yoga, it de-stresses and gives me a little bit of work. My class is a little more strength oriented than what I've seen on some sites.

    Favorite Primal food: Steak. By a long shot. I could eat it for every meal if I had the money.

    Best part about being Primal: I feel so much better and my weight is dropping faster than I thought it would, and I haven't even started an exercise program.

    Worst part about being Primal: Explaining it to others who don't think about what they are doing to themselves, but just trust the government to tell them how to eat. Hello? The US government? Do any of those people look healthy, honest and happy? Not by a long shot - so why would we do what they say?

    Age (If you want): 20 but I really think I'm still 19

    How Primal are you: 95% if you count cheese and 100% coco as primal. I would say I'm not 100% only cause I eat cheese, drink kefir, and use stevia or luo han guo a few times a week. Other than that, I'd say I'm almost 100%.

    Do you consume dairy: Yup, kefir almost everyday (I had MRSA, took awhile to get rid of it with alot of anitibiotics so I need the good bacteria back in my gut), cheese about 4 times a week, and the rare treat of raw whole milk.

    Do you drink coffee or tea: Yeah, green and black tea. Sometimes I'll have an iced coffee or hot coffee but not very often, maybe once or twice a month.

    Motivator for switching to Primal: Been into diet since I had acne in my early teens and cleaned up my diet to clear it up. I was always an athlete as well so I ate relatively healthy. Excessive running left me way too skinny, and I've always been that skinny kid who didn't have enough muscle to look ripped but was still way too skinny...I honestly forget how I found this site but I found it a few months ago and after much debate with myself... I gave it a shot 100% as of the end of May and I havent deviated since.. got some muscle on me, close to a 6 pack (got 4 showing all the time and 6 when I flex), and finally some muscle. My skin looks great, I feel strong and energetic and I'm here to stay with this.

    Favorite exercise: I love the Overhead Press. Basically lifting heavy and hiking. I love long walks and nature. (ahha how cliche but really)

    Favorite Primal food: Hard one... maybe Steak & Eggs, Almond Butter, Berries, and Chicken Drumsticks. Fat is so good it's unbelievable sometimes.

    Best part about being Primal: The freedom. Freedom from cravings, freedom from eating 3 or 6 meals a day too. Also, the physical benefits. My skin looks great, I'm in great shape...soon I'll finally be muscular enough to impress a girl on the beach.

    Worst part about being Primal: People who don't understand it. It;s hard for me, because I'm pretty thin already... so when I say I don't eat carbs people think I'm anorexic or something. It's a problem with girls too... they don't understand why you don't want to eat their cake or the cookies they bake. My roommates in my house don't get why I don't want to eat the same food as them so we can cook meals together... people get strange when you don't want to be the same as them .
