    madMUHHH > I did - became fanatic about what I ate at around age 16.. so you're not alone. My friends joked around a lot too.... but you'll keep joking about them, long after they're dead from nasty diet-related illnesses! ;-)

    Your location: Toronto, Canada

    Age (If you want): 46

    How Primal are you: 100% for 2.5 months now

    Do you consume dairy: Yes, although I did stop for a few weeks to see if it had any affect on my acne (yes, I still have acne at 46 - super pain in the butt). Tried it based on some comments in these forums. It didn't seem to have any lasting effects though. Then I made the some cultured butter and dairy was back on the menu. I’m still trying to figure the acne thing out.

    Do you drink coffee or tea: At least two large mugs of Green Tea every day.

    Motivator for switching to Primal: Bit of a long story. Basically my doctor gave me 3 months to get my Cholesterol under control or I would have to start taking meds. I've tried various CW diets for most of my life, of course none of them worked. Last year I tried the Dukan Diet and lost about 25 lbs, it seemed to be a miracle, this was the most I had ever lost and in a relatively short period of time. My cholesterol dropped like a rock, my doctor was amazed. I felt awesome! Then of course I fell off it, you can only eat low fat for so long. I gained back about 15 pounds and started to feel like crap again. A few months ago I saw the documentary "Fat Head" and it just all seemed to fit together, this was my epiphany moment. I read the Primal Blueprint and knew that this was going to be a way of life. I've now lost a total of 30 lbs, with only 10 more to go. I've made so many heath changes, grass fed beef, organic everything as much as possible, even started a garden - well, it's ready for summer anyway. I haven't re-checked my Cholesterol yet, that will be in January. I'm really interested to see where it lands relative to the Dukan Diet.

    Favourite exercise: Long hikes with the family. I just finished reading the "Slow Burn Fitness Revolution", so I'm going to give that a try next.

    Favourite Primal food: Grass Fed Beef - All cuts!

    Best part about being Primal: The fact that all my carb cravings are completely under control (not gone, but totally under my control). Now, I can walk past a fast food restaurant without that temptation to grab something quick. Food commercials just make me angry, not hungry

    Worst part about being Primal: I still have this feeling at the back of my head that what we're doing is extremely dangerous. I know it's just CW talking, but sometimes it really scares me. I think it will be better after my next physical.

    Do you consume dairy: rarely. If I do it is cream in my morning coffee...never been big on dairy

    Motivator for switching to Primal: sick and tired of being sick and tired

    Favorite exercise: Walking/Jogging

    Favorite Primal food: probably beef...

    Best part about being Primal: the diet and exercise is more "elegant"...I could never get on the 4 hour a day gym commitment.

    Worst part about being Primal: There really isn't a worste...nothing comes to mind

    Hello Mark and all, I just finished reading Primal Blueprint, and I am committed to giving it a go. Over the past 30 months I have lost a more than 80lbs. however for the past six months mostly at a standstill. I would like to at least drop another 20+lbs before stablizing. That would put me at 185. I read Primal Blueprint on my DROID using the Kindle Reader, at the same time I was deer hunting in Southwest PA. It was reading primal and living primal at the same time. Yes I did bring home fresh venison. I don't want to disclose what I ate to loose the weight. I did loose weight but I did not do myself any real favors. Lots of insulin spikes which I now understand why. I will be reading more on MarksDailyApple for sure. This is going to take a lot of new thinking, but I am committed. Thanks

    Your location: Chicago, IL

    Age (If you want):

    Just turned 35 (yesterday)

    How Primal are you:

    Committed to 100% Primal food (re-committed for the last week)

    Do you consume dairy:

    Not at the moment, may re-incorporate slowly (raw, high fat) after 6 weeks or so. I miss my cheese and cream.

    Do you drink coffee or tea:

    Yes, both, often.

    Motivator for switching to Primal:

    To have a sexy body.... I have weight to lose and muscle to gain. I have been on and off low-carb/Atkins/Paleo for years and after time have come to realize that my body just doesn't function well on grains. I like what Mark and this community have come up with, both the food-plan and the lifestyle.

    Favorite exercise:

    Love kettle-bells - swing is my favorite movement, but I like almost all. Wanting to learn to be a better swimmer. Hikes (urban and rural) in my vibrams

    Favorite Primal food:

    Steak... Dry Aged the longer the better.

    Best part about being Primal:

    Did I mention steak? Beyond that the feeling that my body is working as designed.

    Worst part about being Primal:

    There are foods I miss...

    Hi, I'm Bell. Have been reading the site/forums for nearly a year now, thought it was about time I made contact.

    Your location:
    North West London, UK

    Age (If you want):
    34

    How Primal are you:
    Around 80% or above, haven't had pasta or rice since the Feb 2011, and haven't had bread or other grains since Oct 2011.

    Do you consume dairy:
    Yes, Whole milk, butter, cream and rarely cheese.

    Do you drink coffee or tea:
    I drink tea with milk most days. And coffee with milk one or two times a week.

    Motivator for switching to Primal:
    A natural progression over the last year through putting effort into listening to what my body is telling me, regarding hunger and what I feel like eating, rather than having xyz square meals a day etc, and naturally came to eat and desire what is known as primal eating... so here I am.

    Favourite exercise:
    Walking/Bike riding. I haven't really invested in specific exercises yet, but am looking at some weightlifting/bearing exercising

    Favourite Primal food:
    Pork belly... I could eat it over roasted sweet potato wedges, baked beetroot in balsamic dressing and salad every day.

    Best part about being Primal:
    Not being a slave to the notion that it's a certain time, therefore I must eat. Not feeling half as hungry as I did when eating grains and not feeling like I need to eat again after finishing a meal. Eating 'shocking high fat' food like avocados without peer guilt. I suppose in essence, freedom from food domination.

    Worst part about being Primal:
    That it throws up how incongruous to healthy lifestyles supermarkets and governments truly are. Over 70% of my local supermarket is unnecessary, it's such a waste.
