    How Primal are you: newbie, but am good with limiting carbs

    Do you consume dairy: yes, but waning

    Do you drink coffee or tea: coffee...yes. In mass quantities. I teach first grade, and, like sharks, they smell weakness.

    Motivator for switching to Primal: My boyfriend is Primal and turned me on to the lifestyle. I don't eat white sugars/white carbs usually, but the no-grains is new to me

    Favorite exercise: Can I say sex?

    Favorite Primal food: Fajitas with beef and peppers

    Best part about being Primal: not having to count calories, points, etc.

    Worst part about being Primal: Eschewing all bread, etc. And the price of quality meat is higher than cheap carbs. I know the long-term goal is less consumption overall, so I'm happy about that.

    Hello all,

    I'm new here so I thought I would have a go at the questions:

    Your location: Kansas

    Age (If you want): 38

    How Primal are you: I'm still pretty new but I'd say about 90%

    Do you consume dairy: Nope

    Do you drink coffee or tea: I don't drink coffee, never have, I do drink Green Tea and Peppermint Tea everyday and occasionally other herbal teas.

    Motivator for switching to Primal: I've been tweaking my diet for about a year, trying to figure out what is best for my extremely sensitive stomach. I had already cut out dairy and processed foods before discovering Primal, but taking out grain has been a miracle!

    Favorite exercise: I love lifting weights and I love Yoga and I LOVE to dance

    Favorite Primal food: I adore leafy greens (love me some spinach and kale)

    Best part about being Primal: The way my body has responded, my stomach loves me!

    Worst part about being Primal: That beer is made out of grain.....

    Hello & Hola!

    I live in Clarksville Tennesse. My name it's Emilia and I am 39 years old. As now Im in Chapter 3 of The Primal Blueprint" I believe i have a long way to go to become all Primal! Being Latin our culture its fill with grains and fried food! But we also consume a lot of roots, fruits and greens. I do eat dairy, milk and addictive to cheese! Yes I know a long way to go... I drink to cup of coffe a day one in the morning and one in the afternoon. I dont like tea! For a while i wanted to find something that would fullfill my life, enhancing my good habits and putting to rest my bad one. I dont do drugs, smoke or drink; but i do over eat when im stress or sad. As Im getting older i want to change my life to be more healthy and live longer to see my grandkids. But before that my kids are at a perfect age for me to enjoying the out doors and be more active. My favorite excercise it is rope jump. My favorite Primal food it is meat. The best part about primal its all the fact about the things im eating now, how things supposed to be good but they are not. The book was very complicated; i wish i could have the history and all the fact in one side and a simple explainaition on what to do; and also i will hate give up my rice.
    I also have to add that im very new, Im still reading the book. The little I now its from my friends but i have seeing the results in every aspect of their life and Im willing to do what it takes to feel free, energize and free of sickness.

    Hi All! Long time lurker, first time poster (well, second time I guess). I don't recall where I first came across the primal/paleo lifestyle, but it's been a long time in the making. I've been primal-ish for quite some time and am getting ready to dive in head first!


    Your location: Seattle, WA

    Age (If you want): 29

    How Primal are you: 50/50...and my way to 90/10

    Do you consume dairy: Yes, but am considering cutting it out (or at least cutting waaaaay down)

    Do you drink coffee or tea: Tea

    Motivator for switching to Primal: Tired of being sick and tired (and overweight). I am ready to feel strong and healthy. Plus, I have a huge family history of cancer. I refuse to make it that easy

    Favorite exercise: squats...and yoga

    Favorite Primal food: beef- I could eat steak every day of the week

    Best part about being Primal: not feeling like I need to eat constantly

    Worst part about being Primal: I have 29 years of bad habits that pretty much go against everything primal

    Thanks for reading all! I am really looking forward to being part of this community!

    Your location:South Louisiana (hour outside of New Orleans)

    Age (If you want):32

    How Primal are you:3 days in

    Do you consume dairy:normal dairy junkie. I have given it up.

    Do you drink coffee or tea:Yes and yes but mostly tea

    Motivator for switching to Primal:Recommendation from a friend. I was always a carb addict and it had kept extra weight on me and has cause inflammation in my body. I need to lose 30 pounds of extra weight for my knees because I am so active.

    Favorite exercise:biking and snowboarding

    Favorite Primal food:steak

    Best part about being Primal:I just started but already love not feeling bloated from starchy foods. And I love being able to eat the things I gave up for a long time because they've been demonized like animal fats.

    Worst part about being Primal:No pasta!

    I'm attempting to be primal in probably the hardest part of America. Down here we love great food. Lots of rice, bread, pasta, and beer. But I don't want to be another overweight slob from South Louisiana who is on 10 different prescription drugs by the time I'm 45. I want to be different. I want to be a lean mean primal machine. I look forward to being a part of this tight knit community.
