    How Primal are you: Just getting started, but I know I've always been a VERY primal guy on the inside!

    Do you consume dairy: I do eat cheese, and occasionally sour cream. I've never been a milk drinker really.

    Do you drink coffee or tea: Sometimes have coffee, but I'm very much in the minority when it comes to coffee. Almost everyone in my office chugs coffee or soda throughout the day, I hardly ever do.

    Motivator for switching to Primal: I've known about the insulin theory for about a year now, thanks to a good friend of mine that's a nutritionist. He insisted I watch the documentary "Fathead" which first educated me on this topic. Then I heard Mark on the Peter Schiff radio show, and knew I had to read The Primal Blueprint. I just finished it a couple days ago, and I'm ready to change my life.

    Favorite exercise: Freeweight lifting

    Favorite Primal food: BEEF

    Best part about being Primal: Getting back the energy that I used to have, and losing the stubborn belly fat

    Worst part about being Primal: Like most Americans, I truly love potatoes and all of the potato-related products. Also, I'm a big fan of pizza : (

    Hi. This is my first post here


    Your location: Fort Lauderdale, FL

    Age (If you want): 34

    How Primal are you: I tried it for a month this past October and am trying to get back on track. I feel great while doing it, and believe in it, but so far it's been a big challenge.

    Do you consume dairy: I kept eating dairy when I was primal, which included cream in my morning coffee, whole fat greek yogurt in my morning smoothie, and a little cheese once in a while.

    Do you drink coffee or tea: Both

    Motivator for switching to Primal: I've been overweight pretty much all my life. I have a slow metabolism and have always gained weight easily. I also have a tough time with carb cravings. If I eat carbs for breakfast, I crave carbs all day and feel ravenously hungry. I'm an emotional eater on top of that, been that way since the 3rd grade. I find that when I cut down on carbs, it takes away the cravings. And exercise helps me deal with my emotions. I just have to work at it day by day to break my pattern. When I came upon this website, this way of life just makes sense for me.

    Favorite exercise: I used to love rough, heart pumping exercise classes like spinning and kickboxing, but now I understand why I feel so hungry afterwards! I continue to do kickboxing exercise DVDs now and then but of shorter duration. When the weather is nice, I love taking walks.

    Favorite Primal food: At the moment, Spaghetti Squash with grass-fed meat sauce

    Best part about being Primal: Having lots of energy

    Worst part about being Primal: Having a husband who refuses to go primal with me

    Do you consume dairy: Yes, heavily (milk and Brazilian White Cheese).

    Do you drink coffee or tea: Yes, both.

    Motivator for switching to Primal: Health.

    Smile Introduction of a primal newbie

    Your location: Urbana, IL

    Age (If you want): 45

    How Primal are you: About to start the program in about a week and very excited!!

    Do you consume dairy: Yes, and I plan to continue Greek yogurt and a bit of good cheese

    Do you drink coffee or tea: Both. I may experiment with switching to green tea and save coffee as a weekend treat--maybe.

    Motivator for switching to Primal: Past experience tells me my only success involves "tweaking" my carb consumption: Carb Addicts, South Beach. I suspect I'm extra sensitive to wheat and know that I usually have more energy without grains in my diet.

    Favorite exercise: Walking and yoga

    Favorite Primal food: Either butter, steak or a pork or lamb roast.

    Best part about being Primal: Not having to do without fat

    Worst part about being Primal: Probably the first day or two (I'm guessing)? That and eating out with hidden carbs like cornstarch in everything.

    Your location: Southern California

    Age (If you want): FINE...33

    How Primal are you: 90%; I started 12/23/11 and I've eaten off-the-grid for stuff like Christmas breakfast, etc.

    Do you consume dairy: Yes, I am a good Scandinavian girl!

    Do you drink coffee or tea: I don't use coffee, it uses me.

    Motivator for switching to Primal: I've noticed a problem when I eat wheat for about two years now...if I had beer and pizza when out with friends, it was a guarantee of having to cut the night short and go home b/c of GI distress. I was following a bodybuilding-type diet for a long time (dedicated lifter) and it didn't feel right to eat nothing but protein all the time, and I stopped seeing progress. I happened across MDA a while ago looking for GF recipes.

    Favorite exercise: I'm a new Crossfitter, so I can definitely name my LEAST favorite and that is FRAN.

    Favorite Primal food: Butter

    Best part about being Primal: My stomach is finally happy with me and I don't have to go home early to spend hours in the bathroom all night (sorry for the TMI.) My skin is clear too!

    Worst part about being Primal: I still log my food into Livestrong because I'm paranoid, but that's more of a "me" problem and less of a primal problem.
