    Age (If you want): 31

    How Primal are you: 70-80% - haven't switched to all grass fed, haven't started keeping a log to track macronutrients, Have just started my "low carb" diet back up about 2 months ago along with going back to the gym after a horrible year off - I feel really good still allowing my self a cheat once a week - pretty sure I will find I need to lower my calories...

    Do you consume dairy: Yep, once a day - don't think I could quit cheese on my eggs EVER

    Do you drink coffee or tea: Coffe, currently with cream and splenda - and water, nothing else, pretty much ever

    Motivator for switching to Primal: Have been doing the low carb thing for years, well aware of how horrible grains, rice and potatoes are for me. It only makes sense to eat natural real food and not processed garbage

    Favorite exercise: Can't pick a favorite, I just love to work out. The problem is finding that extra motivation to get there sometimes.

    Favorite Primal food: I love steak. I am a meatatarien. I don't love a lot of veggies, don't really love fruit, And how can you not love fat?

    Best part about being Primal: eating , feeling good about it

    Worst part about being Primal: I miss pasta. Don't enjoy red sauce or anything, but pasta goes good with alot of primal foods - My most missed is cajun chicken pasta alfredo

    Hi my name is XXTINA

    Location: Canada
    Age: 49
    How Primal: Generally only eat one meal a day (dinner) - usually a protein/salad or protein/veggie base - my downfall is the sugar I truly believe it is a drug seriously once you start you can't stop. Aiming to delete all sugar in the form cookies, crackers, choc milk powder etc. from my diet
    Do You Consume Dairy: Yes - cream in my coffee (can't start my day without it), yogurt (this I can give up), cottage cheese (same - consumed just for protein purposes but can do without) so that will leave just cream for my coffee - sorry, but that HAS to stay!!
    Do You Drink Coffee/Tea:Yes, both. Need morning/evening coffee, drink herbal tea inbetween during the day
    Motivator to Switch to Primal:Basically always followed the principles - looking to kick my sugar/flour addiction and in turn lose those last 10 pounds.
    Favorite Exercise:Have been/still am consistent with weight training, cycling, running
    Favorite Primal Food:Fish/nuts
    Best Part of Being Primal:Energy
    Worst Part of Being Primal:Eating out sometimes becomes probmatic depending on the menu...always plan ahead and check out the menu
