    Both really.


    I have found that posting my real name creates more... animosity among some posters, especially the ones with a bad attitude. Not sure why. Now I just keep it anonymous, even in local boards.


    But, I really do like jazz, much to the chagrin of my clients.

    Your location:Grande Prairie, AB, Canada

    Age (If you want): 27

    How Primal are you: 80% or so, depends on my coffee consumption (see below)

    Do you consume dairy: yes, but in very limited quantity

    Do you drink coffee or tea: I love my coffee. I use almond or soy milk for lattes (don't hate me I use a vanilla syrup to the tune of about 10g of pure sugar per coffee)

    Motivator for switching to Primal: headaches, general malaise and exhaustion (not helped by an 80 hour work-week) and desire for a healthy, fit body. Ironically I've been promoting primal diets for dogs and cats for the last 8 years and never once thought to apply it to myself. I truly believed conventional wisdoms load of hooey and thought "there's no way I'm going to restrict all the foods I love and exercise 18 hours a day to lose weight". Thank god for MDA!

    Favorite exercise: walking my dogs

    Favorite Primal food: steak and nuts and bacon and eggs, pretty much all the meaty/fatty/protein goodness.

    Best part about being Primal: hearing "Holy crap you look amazing!" and not having a headache at the same time.

    Worst part about being Primal: Carb cravings, just recently started having massive cravings for all things potato. And ice cream when its hot.

    Greetings! I'm a fun-loving dude who just discovered this amazing site about a week ago! I look forward to participating in all of the going ons here!


    Your location: Mankato, MN


    Age (If you want): 21


    How Primal are you: Just started a few days back, so I'm not sure exactly "how primal" I will be!


    Do you consume dairy: Just the occasional cottage cheese, or hard, aged cheese. Been off dairy for about 2.5 years now.


    Do you drink coffee or tea: I enjoy the occasional tea, white is my favorite (antioxidants with less fluoride [YUCK])


    Motivator for switching to Primal: I did the whole "raw vegan" thing for about 40 days and as much as I enjoyed it, I missed the meat WAY too much. Therefore, primal seems to be the lifestyle for me.


    Favorite exercise: I like hiking...naked. Though, I do enjoy me some strength training and yoga a lot as well.


    Favorite Primal food: God, that's a toughie. I suppose I'll go ahead and say scrambled eggs with shiitake mushrooms. (breakfast this morning!)


    Best part about being Primal: The fresh veggies along with the MEAT! I also love how I can keep my muscles and stay lean, as opposed to starting to become skinny fat when I was doing the raw vegan thing.


    Worst part about being Primal: Even though I just started, I'm sure that the thing I will miss the most is pigging out at family gatherings (we always have THE BEST desserts!) But, maybe I'll try making a few primal alternative desserts (any suggestions?) and introduce them to my relatives.

    Your location: Northern Nevada


    Age (If you want):40


    How Primal are you: Just starting out


    Do you consume dairy: yes


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


    Motivator for switching to Primal: To feel more healthy, and lose the weight around my midsection. I've lost 20 pounds since I started dieting, but I can't seem to get rid of the last 5 that sit on my belly.


    Favorite exercise: Weight training


    Favorite Primal food: Beef


    Best part about being Primal: The health benefits


    Worst part about being Primal: Sometimes I really miss overly processed junk food! I actually cut out the majority of the 'crap' in my diet a while back, but I was still using the occasional frozen organic meals-like that makes much of a difference. I was also quite a fan of soy crumbles, tofu, etc... I was a firm believer in carbs until recently, when I realized my body was not reacting like I want it to. I'm really looking forward to this new way of life!
