    How Primal are you: Getting there

    Do you consume dairy: Not at the moment

    Do you drink coffee or tea: Yes

    Motivator for switching to Primal: Began natural bodybuilding at age 19. Later began looking as body composition in relation to hunter/gatherers and thinking that professional bodybuilders would be a poor fit for that lifestyle...and is probably why women find those big bulking muscles unattractive. Although I wondered what a hunter/gatherer daily nutrition would look like I only recently came upon the Paleo Diet science.

    Favorite exercise: Nothing particular although I get bored with a lot of distant running so that's not a favorite. I don't consider it exercise but I like hiking. Weightlifting/bodybuilding I'm neutral on. If I could only do one exercise weights would be it.

    Favorite Primal food: Lean meats, fish, vegetables, fruit, and nuts.

    Best part about being Primal: Losing weight, feeling hungry, and having my energy level more stable.

    Worst part about being Primal: trying to explain it to others.

    Northern Arizona Checking In

    Hi all,

    Day 2. Feeling pretty good although last night was a wreck. Couldn't sleep until (you guessed it) it was time to get up.

    Bruce a.k.a. ALGBOY (as in algae boy, given to me by a co-worker). I love blue-green algae as one of my favorite super foods).

    I live within sight of Grand Canyon's North Rim, but on the south side, near a tourist-beholden hamlet. Occupy an off-grid home 14 unpaved miles from the highway.

    54 -- but I look 53.

    How primal? I'll let you know in 20 more days! Seriously, I already have zero sweet tooth. My only craving is, frankly, alcohol. I had one glass of decent Syrrah last night with the steak salad and didn't even crave a second glass.

    Dairy. Pretty much a non-factor for me.

    One cup of Jo in the morning. Two tops-- or my stomach gets too acidified.

    Motivation? I just got my pilot's license and I want to ace my next 3rd Class Medical this Spring. I also hate all these nagging aches and pains. My vanity wants me to drop twenty to thirty pounds just to speak truth to power when I go off on fast food, MSG, sugar, fluoride, HFCS, and other bad stuff people shove in their pie holes.

    Favorite Primal Food? I love sushi. Eggs from our own chickens, too. Not a huge carnivore, but a juicy ribeye every so often is great. I definitely eat to live -- not the inverse.

    Best part of Primal? I hope it's the looking and feeling better thingie. Getting more fit is important to me. I'm already imagining the various work-out stations I can create just around my property: wood chopping, boulder throwing, digging tree holes with my pickaxe, marches in my cinder hills, hay bale tossing . . . And so on.

    Worst part of going Primal? I do like carbs: a crusty French baguette, mashed potatoes, French fries . . . Oh well.

    Blue Skies!
    Bruce

    Hi, I'm a newbie to the forums and a greenie to Primal living.

    Your location: Eindhoven, The Netherlands

    Do you drink coffee or tea: only herbal tea's and only sometimes.

    Motivator for switching to Primal: I saw that photo of Carrie Sisson and it sold me on it.

    How Primal are you: Just started, dived in head first not totally converted to organic so about 80% Primal

    Do you consume dairy: Milk and cheese but want to remove the milk

    Best part about being Primal: I've only done it for 3 weeks and I feel amazing with several health benefits already.

    Worst part about being Primal: The smell of the bakery in the supermarket!

    I am working to be completely primal. But not quite 100% yet.

    No dairy except butter

    I do drink coffee, but trying to convert to herbal tea

    I have followed this site for a while, but in december I decided to get healthier...I had one small derail last week (was staying in hospital with family member) but have gotten back on track.

    Love the simple old dips

    Steak....ribeye, or ny strip

    best part of being primal: STEAK

    Worst: no rice (we use it in everything we cook in louisiana)
