    Age (If you want): 25

    How Primal are you: Getting there! I've only known about primal for 2 weeks and in that time I have cut out all sugar and grains with the exception of wild rice and some porridge oats with breakfast. I've also cut out all processed foods and am cooking everything from fresh veggies and meat. Since I have been reading here I have been considering cutting out all grains but haven't quite gone there yet.

    Do you consume dairy: Yes - I seem to digest it fine and given all the other changes I've made I'm sticking with it for now. Once I feel more settled on primal plus dairy I think I'll try a while without it to see how it affects me.

    Do you drink coffee or tea: I drink herbal teas and green tea.

    Motivator for switching to Primal: I got a personal trainer at the gym who follows a primal diet and who set me in the right direction. She didn't specifically say that I should go all the way just gave me a few rules (e.g. no sugar, lots of protein and "good" fats, cut out wheat and don't have any other grains in the evening) and sent some links to articles - one of which was Mark's and following that link lead me here!

    Favorite exercise: walking out in the fresh air

    Favorite Primal food: chicken stir-fry with lots of veggies and coconut milk

    Best part about being Primal: So far, on a semi primal diet for two weeks, I've lost 3kg (c. 6.5pounds) and shaped up massively which has been a real eye-opener for me as by CW I shouldn't have! I also have significantly more energy than I did and don't crash out when I'm home from work. I didn't consider my diet as particularly bad prior to talking to my trainer and it wasn't by CW standards but it was very high in refined carbs and I did way too much cardio with no resistance work to balance it.

    Worst part about being Primal: So far I haven't found one to be honest as I'm not missing any non-primal foods, but its only been two weeks!

    How Primal are you: At the time of writing this, I'm nearly 2 weeks in. I've only had 1 cheat meal and it hurt. I think I'm doing it right, haven't had a drop of soda or bread since I started.

    Do you consume dairy: Greek yogurt is my only dairy intake.

    Do you drink coffee or tea: Black coffee

    Motivator for switching to Primal: Want to see my daughter grow up and I don't want her to have a "fatty daddy". I also want to play more efficient tennis.

    Favorite exercise: Tennis all the way - 4.5 NTRP player, 4 times per week 2-3 hours per session.

    Favorite Primal food: Ribs - short or long, beef, and pork sausage.

    Best part about being Primal: Eating all the meat I can handle!

    Worst part about being Primal: No peanut butter and my wife is a vegan so she can't indulge in the awesomeness of paleo!

    Favorite Primal food: Eggs, Beef - Rare

    Best part about being Primal: Eating clean REAL food

    Worst part about being Primal: So far, haven't experienced any worsts yet

    Story:

    My wife and I have been together since High School. Shortly after high school we started gaining weight, mostly me.

    Steadily over about 10 years I gained a few pounds a year. I went from 140's/150's (cant remember) at 5'7" in high school to 215lbs at age 25. I started to notice, but I never really made any changes until I was about 28 or so. I had learned about eliminating 'white' carbs to lose body fat, but I didnt really know much about how it works, or why, nor did I know much else. I lost some weight here and there, getting down and stabilizing at about 185-195. I NEVER worked out steadily; and I was an athlete in school. Then About 2 years ago I got P90X and hit it for about a month. I got sick as a dog and never got back on it afterwards. That month of eating according to the guide and the workouts I was down to 170 at best. Since then I bounced up to 185 and down to 175 by different methods including the "Slow Carb Diet" introduced to me by Tim Ferriss' book 4 Hour Body, this past January. I did that for a solid month then fell off that wagon after losing it at Disney World. Since Then Ive been looking for motivation and reading up on different nutritional lifestyles when I stumbled on Paleo, and eventually Primal. I read and read and read, blog after blog. Ive not purchased the book yet, but will soon, but I have made changes I feel necessary and am a work in progress already.
    I've not started working out in any capacity, but I've already dropped to my lowest weight in years, at a stabilized 167 lbs.
    I really think this will be my new lifestyle. Im sold on the whole idea. My wife is on board and my kids already love these foods. Raised em right! Just gotta wean them off the crap foods.
    Also my cholesterol is historically high, it always has been. But My Trigs are low, my HDL is good, my LDL is 'high'. My total numbers range from 240-285. Trigs at about 65, HDL at about 65, LDL is the rest; 185+/- depending on the test.
    After reading, and I'll continue to research it, Im not too worried about it. My ratios are half of the optimal numbers, so Im straight with it.

    {Edit} I also quit drinking sodas Jan 2009, and mostly gave up fast food Jan 2010.

    Anyways, I'll stop blabbing on.

    -Jones

    Age (If you want): 32, but I'll be 33 soon.

    How Primal are you: I'm wrapping up my first week, and I've been about 80%.

    Do you consume dairy: Yes, but I'm letting go of it. I think that it's definitely a food sensitivity for me.

    Do you drink coffee or tea: YES! Coffee with cream and sugar. I can drink it black, but I prefer not to.

    Motivator for switching to Primal: Health reasons, but I think I'm sensitive to gluten. Plus, I'm trying to make the switch to a sugar-free lifestyle. Going grain-free has made being sugar-free a lot easier. The sugar cravings have been non-existent.

    Favorite exercise: Climbing on the playground equipment with my kids. I don't know why more moms don't do this!

    Favorite Primal food: Hard boiled eggs. Easy to make. The original fast food!

    Best part about being Primal: Losing the bloat!

    Worst part about being Primal: Not having my family do this with me, and being viewed as extreme.

    I've only been doing this for about a week, but I love how I feel. I see such potential for my life doing this.
    Learning to be Primal to set the example for my family
