Hoy hoy! I'm on day six of being primal. On day four I woke up with either a sinus infection (that's what I'm leaning toward, since my roommate was sick with one recently) or some very dramatic, very rapid expulsion of all dairy and grain/sugar fueled congestion out my nose, all the time. Oh, it's awesome. It's not, really. I'm hoping that regardless of what's causing this, when it's gone, I won't be congested anymore, as I've been at least mildly congested continuously since I was about 16.
Your location: Seattle
Age (If you want): 28
How Primal are you: 100%...so far. Trying my best to stick to it 100% for the first 30 days.
Do you consume dairy: No. It'll be one of the first things I try when my 30 days is up.
Do you drink coffee or tea: No.
Motivator for switching to Primal: It was rationale that finally made sense to me - if a food is good for you, it's good for you, period - not when it's processed a certain way (for example, whole grains vs. processed grains). I've been thinking that the more whole a food is the better, but CW was telling me otherwise so I just gave up trying to make sense of it all. I really hope I'll lose weight as well - if not, I'll have to find some way to lose weight.
Favorite exercise: Brazilian jiu jitsu
Favorite Primal food: Can I count ghee as a food? I love it. Also bacon. And bacon grease.
Best part about being Primal: Eating when I'm hungry with no guilt. Wait, no, it's not having any anxiety about what will happen when I'm hungry, more than the no guilt part. Not worrying about fat.
Worst part about being Primal: No popcorn, no soda. I miss those things the most by far. Cake, cookies, bread, pasta...eh. But popcorn and soda, they are my kryptonite. Maybe after 30 days, they will constitute the entirety of my 20%. Maybe after 30 days, though, I won't really miss them anymore.
Wish me luck!
