Your location: Baton Rouge, Louisiana
Age (If you want): 19
How Primal are you: Pretty much 100% except I do go out to eat occasionally and eat a few pieces of fried catfish (what can i say? I'm from Louisiana.) On a regular basis, I do not eat any grains, legumes, very limited on potatoes, no processed foods, no refined sugars.
Do you consume dairy: I enjoy about 2tbsp. of whipped cream around 5 days a week, that's all. I'm not opposed to dairy, just don't eat it much.
Do you drink coffee or tea: I drink coffee everyday, mostly. I drink unsweetened tea periodically.
Motivator for switching to Primal: I was sick & tired of being sick & tired. I was unhealthy and unhappy. I had heard about the Paleo diet a few years ago, decided to research, and ended up finding MDA and learning about the Primal diet.
Favorite exercise: Walking or Insanity ... It's a close tie.
Favorite Primal food: Currently, its pumpkin waffles ... It changes often though. Oh & BACON!! <3
Best part about being Primal: The feeling you get, its indescribable. To wake up fully rested, full of energy, and feeling like you could take over the world. No mid-day crashes, rarely getting sick, my mysterious migraine problem is gone, my skin is so glowy, and I'm losing weight. What could be better?
Worst part about being Primal: When people ask me, "so what's it like being like a caveman?" or people that try to convince me that I'm wrong and am hurting my body or depriving it. Oh & especially when people say, "well you need grains to get your fiber. You need to eat more dairy to get your calcium. Yada yada yada." Other then that, nothing =)
