    Your location: Wisconsin


    Age (If you want):24


    How Primal are you: I'd say about 95%--I still eat ghee and raw goat cheese (I'm cutting out all other dairy d/t possible intolerance)

    And I haven't had much time for exercising lately--but I try to work exercise into my daily life as much as possible, even if its just little things!


    Do you consume dairy: see above


    Do you drink coffee or tea: coffee once and awhile, tea more often (I like white, green and black tea and everything in between too! hehe)


    Motivator for switching to Primal: Basically to be healthy, strong and beautiful ~_^ and also because I have multiple sclerosis, which I now know is probably caused by the SAD (gluten, casien, excess carbohydrates...)


    Favorite exercise: Playing football, soccer, sprinting, swimming, biking, rollerblading, walking my dog Loki, ice skating...


    Favorite Primal food: Hmmm...tough one...there aren't many foods I dislike! I DO love raspberries, strawberries, boysenberries, ghee, avocados, romaine lettuce, steak, burgers, taco salad, mushrooms, bacon, omlettes, spaghetti squash, jalepenos, kimchi, bul-gol-gi, sashimi, salmon with butter...OK, Ok, I'll stop now!


    Best part about being Primal: Being healthy, feeling radiant and beautiful, having energy, eating what God intended for me to eat, and no MS relapses!!!!


    Worst part about being Primal: cooking can be time consuming (I love cooking, but also work full time...bleahh..:P) and it can get a little pricey buying food (but I am DETERMINED to stick to our food budget this month!!!)

    Oh, and no candy...LOL...I used to be a candy fiend! I really don't miss it nearly as much as I thought I would, though.

    Meep. I should have done this a while ago...


    Your location: Aussieland (NSW, Australia)

    Age (If you want): 19

    How Primal are you: I'd say 85%. I feel I still have a little personal trial and error to go through before I really get into a lifestyle groove.

    Do you consume dairy: I do, but not in large amounts. I enjoy some yoghurt and a little ricotta/cottage cheese.

    Do you drink coffee or tea: I'm a big tea person. I drink 2-3 cups of herbal tea daily (roiibos, dandelion, chamomile, white tea)

    Motivator for switching to Primal: I grew up eating lots of (white) grains. My mother's asian and consumes white rice with just about every meal, while dad grew up with a very "baked beans on toast, meat & potatoes" background. I'm currently working through insulin resistance (it's milder now than what it was a few years ago) and there's a strong history of Diabetes 2 in my family. I want to take charge of my health and live a lifestyle that keeps my body healthy and free of the disease/disorder I'm "prone" to getting.

    Favorite exercise: Swimming! Not competitive. I enjoy paddling around aimlessly for hours.

    Favorite Primal food: Goji berries, fresh baby coconut, macadamias, avocado, pork and whole chicken roasted Oh, I was supposed to say one?

    Best part about being Primal: It's back to basics!

    Worst part about being Primal: I'd say social influences or food budgeting (even though it's worth it)

    Worst part about being Primal: Expensive


    A little more about me, I'm in the Air Force currently going through training for the next 8 months. Next month I go off to Survival school, how's that for being primal? Haha, so I've been off and on about this style of eating. I've read half of the "Paleo diet" and it was great, but not as fun as reading Mark's "Primal Blueprint" which I've read through about halfway since the short days I've had it. I have to say, I love this book, very well put together and easier to read, while ironically providing more scientific facts. Either way I'm slowly converting to the primal lifestyle and enjoying it thus far. It's expensive, seeing as how I try to buy a good portion of my food from Whole Foods. I hope to learn a lot here, by the way my name is Jon for short.
