Hey everyone, I am new to the primal world. I am so glad that I found the Primal Blueprint when I did. During the last half of 2011 I battled a serious health issue that caused my vision to be blurred, at time to the point of being legally blind. It finally came under control in mid-December, started in early July. Lifestyle and diet were key contributors to it. I had followed so much Conventional Wisdom through the years, I was just totally confused and frustrated. My weight was an all time high. My energy level was non existant. Within a few days I noticed a huge increase in energy. Shortly after starting the program I was laid off from my job of 18 years. I was always a stress eater in the past, but I kept on being Primal. One of first things I did was go play basketball with my kids at the park. I am hardly ever hungry and eat a lot less food than I did in the past. PB has also gotten me to a place where I can deal with my life situations in a constructive manner. Looking forward to my new Primal Life!!

Motivator for switching to Primal: Struggled with my weight most of my adult life and got very confused as to what was right and what was wrong. Needed something simple and effective. Found the Primal Blueprint while browsing on my Nook. Got it, read it and converted.
Favorite exercise: So far- Kettlebell workout outside on my patio with a fire roaring in the firepit in January. Totally Grok inspired.
Favorite Primal food: Definitely the Primal omelet.
Best part about being Primal: I feel so much better about myself. I have energy all day and a clear mind.
Worst part about being Primal: Trying to find things to do during the winter months to use up all this extra energy I have.
