    In My Case, the back was the result of a bad bike accident, I have 3 herniated discs in my lower back which messes with the nerves in my legs. My legs get weak and I have folded both knees sideways tearing the acl and messing up the meniscus as a result. I am hoping that as I loose weight, my back issues will go away and my knees will suffer less for that. 1 week in and counting. Down 1 pant size too.

    How Primal are you: I've been kind of following the primal diet based on listening to some podcasts and blogs I gleaned from Lew Rockwell's site. I am very Libertarian and like the idea of doing the opposite of whatever the government says to do : )

    Do you consume dairy: Yes, mostly yogurt or cheese.

    Do you drink coffee or tea: No coffee, herbal teas, black or green

    Motivator for switching to Primal: Sick and tired of being sick and tired- have chronic back pain, hoping this will help

    Favorite exercise: hiking

    Favorite Primal food: Tuna

    Best part about being Primal: Don't know yet, but I do like the eating lifestyle and the exercise routines based on what I have read so far. I have been following the frequent high intensity exercise "chronic cardio" routine and realize it is killing me.

    Worst part about being Primal: I don't see any negative yet - except the possibility that finding good local, organic foods may be difficult.

    I am beginning the full fledged paleo diet this week 4/10/12. Just got the book and am reading it and excited about this, hope it lasts : )

    How Primal are you: 80%? I ate milk chocolate on Easter and I am still using store mayo. I have a casein allergy, so giving up dairy was difficult.

    I drink about 3 cups of coffee per day.

    Motivator? Seems right. My husband did SCD for about 5 years. I have low carbed more times than I can count, always falling off the wagon and never feeling good. I have been doing this for a few weeks and it makes me feel good and is easy.

    Favorite exercise: walking my greyhound.

    Favorite Primal food: my homemade pork sausage

    Best part: not keeping track of every bite and feeling like a screwup. I am free!

    Worst part: I will let you know.....

    Hello!

    I am new to this website but have been Primal off and on for about two years. What an exciting forum!!! I have been reading up on new ideas and have put most to use privately and professionally. I just relocated to Tempe, Arizona were I will be for about six to twelve months - I am a private nurse and working for a family in Scottsdale. Are there any primal partners in Tempe? I would love to meet up and maybe learn some "go to - don't go to" places in Tempe. I have been out riding my bike and notice it is a diverse little town - rich with so many restaurants & things to do - Where do I start?

    Welcome, Semabe!

    Congrats on getting back on the right track. Unlike you, I was a nerd-couch-potato most of my life and only became athletic about 3 years ago (I'm now 43). I've been doing Primal/Paleo since September 2011. Before that, I was eating a healthier version of the Conventional Wisdom Diet, but Primal is so much easier.

    I thought I'd drop you a line since I'm almost your neighbor -- I live in Montrose and I usually take the Metro Goldline from Pasadena to downtown L.A.

    Be well,
    Anthrocavedude
