    Your location: Brooklyn Ny

    Age (If you want): 30 (will be 31 in less then a month, can I just say 30 again? lol)

    How Primal are you: So far pretty much 100%, no grains, no artifical sweetners, no legumes, no dairy (have been eating this way since may 1st with no cheats) I just can't always afford grass fed, organic, free range, wild caught..

    Do you consume dairy: nope not yet..

    Do you drink coffee or tea: I love coffee, coffee loves me. I drink tea once in a while but I always read the box whats in the tea first..

    Motivator for switching to Primal: I have been eating low carb for about 4yrs, after having my youngest child (whos almost 8 months) and going back to low carb (went very off plan during pregnancy that im very embarassed I gained 70lbs+) just eating low carb wasn't cutting it anymore. Making to many excuses, taking to many tastes, eating way to much fake frankenfood garbage and not losing the pregnancy weight. I tried primal and lost about 10lbs in the first 35 days.

    Favorite exercise: I love to walk, callanetics and weight lifting (but I need to get my motivation back lol)

    Favorite Primal food: Steak and eggs

    Best part about being Primal: I feel great, makes eating home so easy.

    Worst part about being Primal: can be expensive...

    My name is Jack Kruse and I am a neurosurgeon who has been eating a strict paleolithic diet for five years. I came to paleo by opening biochemistry and physiology books and reading the data over the last 50 years to find out why my patients disease patterns were changing. I also fond out why my own were to and I adjust it. Now I plan to share what I know with the masses.

    How Primal are you: It will be 5 months next Saturday.

    Do you consume dairy: Only heavy whipping cream in coffee

    Do you drink coffee or tea: Coffee and green tea during IF's

    Motivator for switching to Primal: My body didn't "do" carbs well. By "do" I mean, couldn't shed bodyfat and made me sluggish. Didn't have bad reactions or anything my body just "kept" them versus processing them.

    Favorite exercise: StrongLifts5x5....I'm a long time meathead/gym rat who has been either powerlifting or bodybuilding for almost 30 years.

    Favorite Primal food: Grassfed beef

    Best part about being Primal: I have sleep apnea and even with the CPAP I still had the zombie-like stages. Since going Primal and dropping my carbs down to <50g's daily my energy level is through the roof.

    Worst part about being Primal: Probably the first week but other than that, it's all good.

    Hi everyone,

    Name: Simon

    Your location: Sweden

    Age (If you want): 25

    How Primal are you: In numbers I would say 80%, still working on the sleep and play parts

    Do you consume dairy: Yes! Heavy cream, some cheese and of course butter

    Do you drink coffee or tea: Green tea

    Motivator for switching to Primal: Finding a style of eating that energize me and feels natural

    Favorite exercise: Barefoot running (slow) and pull-ups

    Favorite Primal food: A big bloody, juicy steak with a nice sallad

    Best part about being Primal: Stable energy, lean body and I'm almost never sick

    Worst part about being Primal: I miss some sweets, like apple pie and cup cakes, but with the 80 / 20 rule I occasionally take a bite with good conscience. But the worst part is that I haven't yet found a good way to spread the word and inspire people around me (that really needs it) to make the shift to a primal life style.
