    Your location: Milwaukee-ish, WI

    Age (If you want): 36

    How Primal are you: Newbie Primal -- have been eating and sleeping Primal for about 8 weeks, still in the process of transitioning to a more Primal exercise model.

    Do you consume dairy: Cheese and butter

    Do you drink coffee or tea: Yes

    Motivator for switching to Primal: I was tired of tracking every bite I put into my mouth, being hungry all the time, working out ridiculously, and still getting fatter. I'm a big fan of n=1 experimentation, so I tried it. Now I'm a HUGE fan. Also, since starting Primal, I discovered that I'm pregnant (16 weeks). My two prior pregnancies felt miserable and left me with lots of weight to lose. I'm feeling *amazing* and am up ~2 pounds at this point, so anecdotally, I'll chalk that up in the "Primal win" column.

    Favorite exercise: Running. (I know, I know, but I just love it so much) Hiking is a close second.

    Favorite Primal food: Hmmm. Toughie. Salmon or avocado.

    Best part about being Primal: It's a tie between "Not being hungry all the time" and "Amazing energy levels."

    Worst part about being Primal: Getting my 6- and 9-year-old daughters on board. It's sloooooow going.

    How Primal are you: 100%

    Do you consume dairy: yes

    Do you drink coffee or tea: No

    Motivator for switching to Primal: Multiple reasons, first I was tired of being dependent on carbs for energy during Motocross races and no matter what training I did or what I ate my endurance and body composition was never satisfactory. I've been 100% Primal for just over a month and the difference has been absolutely incredible.

    Favorite exercise: Biking

    Favorite Primal food: Grass fed beef with Broccoli or grilled chicken and grilled peppers

    Best part about being Primal: Of all the things I would have to say my energy levels. No more peaks and lows its steady the entire day. And I would add eating lots of fat haha

    Worst part about being Primal: Giving up pasta lol
