So I'm Nico. Half French, half American. Quite an odd-ball.
I'm always looking to try something new, and I figured I might want to try being healthy for once.
I wasn't huge when I was young, but then I got older finished school, joined the US army, and when that finished I moved to the US...
Did a lot of stupid things, and at my worst I clock in at over 300 lbs (one example of stupid).
Moved back to Europe 3 years ago, and I'm now trying to get my life in order so that I can live it.
I found Mark's blog because I had run across a book called "Exuberant Animal" by Frank Forencich. At the same time I came across "Born to Run" by Christopher McDougal.
And I'm using those two books as my starting point.
I'm also adding "The Primal Blueprint" to my list to help on the food side of the equation.
I'm probably going to put together a personal blog of all this soon.
Your location: Compičgne, France (45 minutes, or so, North of Paris)
Age (If you want): 29
How Primal are you: Not very since I'm just getting started (a.k.a. Just ordered, and waiting on the book)
Do you consume dairy: I live in France. It would be a crime not to eat delicious raw milk cheeses every once in awhile (and my aunt would have fits)
Do you drink coffee or tea: Both.
Motivator for switching to Primal: Makes sense, and I like meat and veggies.
Favorite exercise: Since I've (re)started the Couch to 5km program, but doing it barefoot/VFF, I actually enjoy running. This is also thanks to the book "Born to Run".
Favorite Primal food: Meat! Meat! And Meat! Venison and boar season is coming!!! Hare and pheasant!!! Duck! Goose!
Best part about being Primal: Ask me again in six months to a year.
Worst part about being Primal: Ask me again in six months to a year.
Once you learn that you create your own reality and that you are fully responsible for your life, you can begin to see the world as it is and then you realize the limitless possibilities.
