I thought that I'd put some questions together to cover these things just to get an idea of who's out there.


    The Questions:


    Your location:Northern CA - the Sierra foothills

    Age (If you want):57

    How Primal are you:about 80% - 90% with food, working on the exercise part

    Do you consume dairy:yep, cream with coffee, occasional cheese, occasional organic homeade yogurt

    Do you drink coffee or tea: yes
    Motivation for going Primal: Metabolic Syndrome, reflux, feeling crappy all the time
    Favorite exercise: Riding my horse, and now walking. I also tried kayaking for the first time and loved it

    Favorite Primal food:steak - preferably charcoal grilled

    Best part about being Primal: a feel so much better

    Worst part about being Primal:
    have not found it yet

    Hi, My first ever post.... here goes

    Your location: Yorkshire, UK

    Age (If you want): 26

    How Primal are you: Try for 100%, right? my grey area is how much dairy to consume. cut out milk completely, but still loving the cheese...

    Do you consume dairy: see above! small portions of strong cheddar, cream and full fat greek yogurt. and Butter

    Do you drink coffee or tea: 1 coffee in the morning, then, green/herbal tea

    Hello everyone! I can't tell you how excited I am to finally make the decision to start posting and keeping myself accountable to the primal laws in PB. I have been on this site for a while now, close to a year, and my wife and I are committing to a better lifestyle. I know the 30 day challenge just ended, but we are starting our own challenge today. I look forward to meeting you all!!!

    A little info, I have always been into working out, but my diet has failed me consistently. I am a perfectionist, so that has made it hard at times. If I missed one part of my workout, or ate something that wasn't good I felt I had to start over. I was looking for short term rewards as opposed to building habits. Well, I hope I can overcome that.

    Cheers!
    Primalwoody

    Hi TeaDub!! I am from Chicag and I too suffer from rosacea and am curious as to if the Primal woe is going to help it. How long have you been off of dairy?

    Tabby ~
    I have been off of dairy for approx 3 months. 6 months ago I gave up cow dairy, but was still consuming sheep's milk products, such as cheese and butter. Once I stopped all milk products I really noticed a difference.

    Back in Feb/ Mar of this year I had a blood allergy test done, and the results showed a very high sensitivity to many cheeses, (including cottage cheese), cream, (including sour cream - which I always thought to be the nectar of the gods...), milk, etc. Goat milk products also showed a high sensitivity. But since the test mentioned nothing about sheep's milk my Dr. thought it would be a good alternative. Well it's not. (The test also showed a high sensitivity to gluten, wheat, yeast and some other grains.)

    My last hold out was for butter. I had a difficult time parting ways with it. (I do use ghee once in awhile.) But once I eradicated all dairy it took about 3 weeks for me to have my great complexion back. (My husband even commented on it.)

    Hope this helps.

    OH NO butter??? That will be a tough one. I will let you know how things go, since I am giving up the dairy.
