    Your location: St Louis MO

    Age (If you want): 40

    How Primal are you: Eat primal most all the time. Playing with the quantities of what I eat to loose and/or maintain weight.

    Do you consume dairy: Still have cheese on occasion but believe that there is more harm in milk then there is health benefit.

    Do you drink coffee or tea: One cup of coffee in the morning more because of the comfort. I can say if eating well I don't need it at all to wake up in the morning

    Motivator for switching to Primal:I did a diet that dropped the weight I wanted to loose and it was similar to primal, so I started using primal to maintain. Main motivation to keep primal is how great I feel!

    Favorite exercise: Long hikes or walking as much as possible

    Favorite Primal food: Steak!

    Best part about being Primal: How easy it is to actually be able to look at a food and say if I can or cannot eat it.

    Worst part about being Primal: Nothing yet. I do miss some foods but I like feeling better a lot more!

    My name is Manda.


    Your location: Seattle, Washington

    Age (If you want): 23 in July

    How Primal are you: I strive for 100%, but with so many differing opinions on what is/isn't acceptable, I don't believe anyone truly achieves it.

    Do you consume dairy: Clarified butter only, occasional hard cheese.

    Do you drink coffee or tea: No caffeine, aside from the occasional dark chocolate.

    Motivator for switching to Primal: Being healthy in body and mind; a smooth-running machine! I've seen previous ailments disappear almost instantly, and I'm constantly witnessing further progress towards absolute health.

    Favorite exercise: Hot yoga. It can be rigorous and energizing, or sedative and cleansing. But it is ALWAYS a healing experience.

    Favorite Primal food: MEEEEEEAT!

    Best part about being Primal: The over-all sense of wellness, and the constant culinary adventure of primal cooking.

    Worst part about being Primal: Weight gain. When I slip, I fall hard, due to a history of ED. So when I regress and cave to my sugar addiction, all the delicious fats I enjoy being primal get sent to storage.

    I'm in it for the long haul, and I'm making slow, steady progress to being the best version of me there is! I haven't' started on my journal yet, but I intend to begin today, so visit me there if you'd like. It's so nice to be a part of an online community in which there is an abundance of information, encouragement, and camaraderie. Thanks, Mark! And thanks to everyone else who will be a part of my journey.

    Hello!
    My name is Melissa.
    I'm not sure if anyone actually reads these, but it feels like a good way to jump in. So...

    Your location: Kansas City, MO

    Age (If you want): 34

    How Primal are you: Mostly. I enjoy the occasional pizza or ice cream.

    Do you consume dairy: Yep! raw milk, cheese (cow, goat, sheep), yogurt. Cutting back for weight loss, though.

    Do you drink coffee or tea: coffee daily, some green & black tea, lots of herbal tea, chai (black + herbal! bonus yum)

    Motivator for switching to Primal: treating my body as well as I can

    Favorite exercise: yoga! also I am a gardener and landscaper and loooove being active as part of my life and work.

    Favorite Primal food: steak, most definitely

    Best part about being Primal: I don't have to strive for more vegetarianism. Embracing meat feels very freeing. Also, my family loves having meat, which means making dinner is much easier.

    Worst part about being Primal: The discomfort of defining myself as "primal". I don't think I'll do it. I feel it obscures the messages my body is giving me about what is best for me to eat.
