    Location: Massachusetts, United States

    Age: 43

    How Primal? Just beginning. We'll see. Trying to do the 30 Day Challenge pretty strictly (except for a holiday or two, and for those days I'll add a couple on the back end).

    Do I Consume Dairy? I live on it. I love milk and cheese. I will try to leave it behind for the Challenge.

    Do I drink Coffee or Tea? This is the second half of my diet. I live on coffee. I'm not giving it up for the Challenge (or for anything else!)

    Motivator for switching to primal? I'd like to get down to 200 lbs. After a year of running alone, I have not lost any weight.

    Favorite Exercise: It ain't really like that. I've been running different distances for the year and will be starting the Strong Lifts 5X5 program along with this Challenge. None of it is all that fun to me yet.

    Favorite Primal Food: Seafood, Steak, Berries, Spinach

    Best Part About Being Primal: Howling at the moon without shame.

    Worst Part About Being Primal: Don't know yet. No dairy probably. The idea of "I can't eat that".

    Your location: Melbourne, Australia

    Age (If you want): 27

    How Primal are you: I'm a week in, so early days, but I've already lost over 2Kg so I'll be giving it a good run.

    Do you consume dairy: I do, I love milk but I'll drop it for PB.

    Do you drink coffee or tea: Not usually, I like them both but I don't drink them much.

    Motivator for switching to Primal: The thinking behind it interests me and I'm also trying to shed some weight.

    Favorite exercise: I hit the gym every 2nd day to do weights, so it would be heavy lifting of some sort.

    Favorite Primal food: Lamb

    Best part about being Primal: You can eat the animal fat on you meat guilt free.

    Worst part about being Primal: Finding dishes with no grains when eating out can be tough.

    Your location: Rhode Island, USA

    Age (If you want): 33

    How Primal are you: 80%-ish

    Do you consume dairy: mostly cheese if the meat I'm eating is dry. I have Scandinavian ancestry and grew up on a dairy farm, so that's my excuse.

    Do you drink coffee or tea: both

    Motivator for switching to Primal: About 7 years ago I discovered it got rid of my acne. Since then I was on/off, but now am much more fundamentally "on" since my son was born and I gained 40 lbs during pregnancy. I've lost 37 of those lbs and the rest I think is in my boobs since I'm still nursing

    Favorite exercise: I do a VERY scaled down version of cross-fit.

    Favorite Primal food: Grassfed Rib-eye

    Best part about being Primal: I feel great!

    Worst part about being Primal: Passing up the tortilla chips/salsa at my favorite Mexican restaurant. But missing it less and less.

    Hey, I just noticed this thread so here it is a little late even though I've been posting recently and have been reading for longer. I'd say I have been fully primal for over a year now.


    Your location: Toronto, Canada (originally from Saskatchewan) -- Nice to see all the Canucks on the forum as well as all the great international representation. Awesome! Hell, gotta love the Yanks, too, of course. (might as well share the love ....)

    Age: 51 (yipes!)

    How Primal are you: Hmm ... Very (some exceptions, below)

    Do you consume dairy: Yes. Almost exclusively raw milk cheeses and homemade kefir (okay, every so often I'll have a good quality, high-cream ice cream. Damn it, I'm human!)

    Do you drink coffee or tea: Coffee

    Motivator for switching to Primal: Better health as I age (or, more accurately, as I try to avoid the process) and the shear logic of it all. Previously, I didn't feel especially bad since I've been a relatively low carber for 10 years and have always been "fit". I wasn't overweight, had no other known health issues, but aging is apparently inevitable and so many people I know are getting sick with the "diseases of civilisation" so I started doing a LOT of reading. Ergo ...PB

    Favorite exercise: Kettlebells (I have drunk Pavel's kool-aid) and, of course, barbells. Power to the People, baby!

    Favorite Primal food: Raw fish, raw coconut oil/cream, and bison meat (that's three, I know)

    Best part about being Primal: The consistent level of energy and vitality I feel as well as ease of maintaining body composition. Oh, yeah, and the delusional feeling of superiority over those who ain't. LOL.

    Worst part about being Primal: Eating out. I'm okay with the loin cloth as long as it's not too tight.
