Location: Long Beach, New York
How primal: I've been eating low carb and mostly protein and veggies for many years now.
Dairy: I consume little dairy for I believe it contributes to osteoporosis.
Coffee or Tea: I have been doing green tea once a day for 2 years now. I do coffee on and off, but would prefer to give it up totally.
Motivation for going Primal: High fiber, low fat weight watchers diet got me 20 lbs. lighter, but cholesterol profile worsened. Research and found out that high sugar/starch diet will do that. So I switched and got rid of all high carbs.
exercise: Love to dance, walk, push ups, lunges. My doctor said my heart rate was better then a long distance runner. I was just taking 1 jazz and 1 ballet class a week, and walking on the other days about 1 or 2 miles.
Favorite food: steak and veggies
Best part of being primal: cooking is so easy and a meal can be made in 15 minutes or less
Worst part of being primal: Not knowing what they put in your food at restaurants even if you order a simple steak and veggie.

Your location: Kona, HI
Age (If you want): too old!
How Primal are you: medium-low. I just started!
Do you consume dairy: milk on coffee, whey-based protien supplement
Do you drink coffee or tea: both
Motivator for switching to Primal: better health
Favorite exercise: walking, swimming
Favorite Primal food: don't have one
Best part about being Primal: fresh start
Worst part about being Primal: I don't want to eat animal products. It's bad enough being addicted to milk in my coffee.
I have recently had surgery that renders me dependent on protein supplementation, and have found no better source than whey-based powder, I'd like to get off that, too, because it's not possible to find that product sourced from grass-fed, organic cattle, and I'm vegetarian but for milk and whey products.
I'd like to learn more about how to do this as a vegetarian.
