Your location: Suburbs of Chicago
Age (If you want): About to turn 27
How Primal are you: I'm not, well, not YET. I'm currently reading 21 Day Total Body Transformation by Primal Blueprint
Do you consume dairy: Right now, I use butter regularly. Milk is not a regular part of my diet, only when I'm eating cereal, which I might add is the childish fruity, loaded with sugar cereal. I plan to change all of this as I'm reading this book
Do you drink coffee or tea: I LOVE coffee. However, I do put cream and sugar in it, I can handle it without, but prefer it with. That will also be changing.
Motivator for switching to Primal: The success stories!!! That is the main reason for wanting and being interested in going primal. What I have read so far, makes TOTAL sense also. It's making me think of things I've never thought of.
Favorite exercise: I don't exercise. Ever. I'm horrible. I know I should, but I just don't feel motivated to go to the gym. I would if I wasn't so tired, or bored all the time. In fact, I would probably love going for a 15 minute jog on a treadmill if I was motivated enough.
Favorite Primal food: Well, I haven't cooked any Primal meals yet.. though I also purchased the Primal Blueprint Cookbook, which I'm really pumped to start using.
Best part about being Primal: Haven't switched over yet. :P
Worst part about being Primal: I'm going to miss potatoes, and pasta. I'm a HUGE pasta lover.
I'm really looking for something that I can get USED to. I've tried diets, they are hard. I've tried just exercising, I don't get into as much as I thought I would. I want something that I can live by, without missing out on all the good things in life. I don't want to look over at someone's plate of bacon and think, "God, I want that..." While I'm looking at scrambled egg whites, and water. I've started to read the 21 Day Transformation, and I'm thinking that this is something I can live my life around. I'm actually EXCITED to try it. The food looks AMAZING, and any diet that includes bacon is a winner in my book. Although, I've already read the part that Mark doesn't like to refer to this as a diet, but rather, a way of life. I am also looking for friends who have JUST recently started going Primal, and have some advice for me? Or someone I can relate to, I know this isn't going to be a cakewalk, but I'm excited to dive right in.
