    How Primal are you: Not even close

    Do you consume dairy: Yes

    Do you drink coffee or tea: Both; black coffee and sweet iced tea

    Motivator for switching to Primal: I joined the navy 4 years ago and it is the most sedentary job I have ever had; I put on a lot of weight very quickly. I am now 240 lbs and decided that I need to make some changes. I came across this website while I was on lewrockwell.com and it just sounded like it makes sense; so I'm going to try it.

    Favorite exercise: Can't say that I have a favorite, I am currently stuck in chronic cardio mode, but I am trying to change that.

    Favorite Primal food: A lot of the recipes I've seen here look great, I can't wait to try them. Right now I am deployed and stuck on a ship, so my options are pretty limited, but I'm looking forward to trying some of the things I've seen here when I get home.

    Best part about being Primal: I can eat a lot of meat.

    Worst part about being Primal: I like bread a lot, it's going to be hard to get away from that.

    Hi, everyone! Glad to be here... I'm finishing up my first 30 paleo days, coming from another forum which wasn't very active.

    Your location: Germany

    Age (If you want): 33

    How Primal are you: 100%. It took about 6 months to get to 90% grain free, then I did the final push with a 30 day challenge where I cut out all grains, legumes and dairy.

    Do you consume dairy: No. I went cold turkey on that over the 30 day challenge. It was surprisingly easy.

    Do you drink coffee or tea: Yes, I drink black coffee daily, but lately I want less and less of it.

    Motivator for switching to Primal: Health reasons. IBS, 20# overweight, reflux, water retention, allergies, asthma...

    Favorite exercise: Hiking with the dog. We also jog once or twice a week about 7-10k each time.

    Favorite Primal food: Fish. Unfortunately it's pretty expensive here.

    Best part about being Primal: Feeling that there might be a way to solve all these pesky health issues.

    Worst part about being Primal: Um... that unfortunately nothing has changed yet.

    How Primal are you: just starting out, food-wise! Aiming for 80%.

    Do you consume dairy:Only the ice cream once or twice a month

    Do you drink coffee or tea: Both

    Motivator for switching to Primal: reduce my body fat - I'm not overweight, but would like to lose 3-5 lbs of pure fat, and it's easier said than done if you are already at a healthy weight and muscular. I realized I needed to do more than simply watch calories. I would also like to reduce cravings and mood swings, and improve my skin!

    Favorite exercise: Anything Crossfit

    Favorite Primal food: roast chicken, raw oysters

    Best part about being Primal: I'm about to find out!

    Worst part about being Primal: difficulty procuring quality food when pressed for time and away from home

    Hello everyone - 1st post here


    Your location: Washington DC

    Age (If you want): 36

    How Primal are you: Haven't even started yet - I'm hung up on dates and plan to do a 30 day challenge starting May 1.

    Do you consume dairy: Right now, yes... but I expect that will change.

    Do you drink coffee or tea: Trust me, it's for your own good.

    Motivator for switching to Primal: I originally scoffed at it, as I do most things that I consider "faddish" or "bandwagon-y." But my personal trainer recently suggested that he thinks I'd like it. After further research, I concluded that he was correct.

    Favorite exercise: Runrunrunrunrun! And anything legs.

    Favorite Primal food: I'll have to get back to you on that, but for my money NOTHING beats a good spinach salad with grilled chicken, eggs, tons of veggies, and balsamic vinegar.

    Best part about being Primal: Pretty much a clean diet taken to the next level. Also, no counting calories. I've had problems linked to eating disorders in the past.

    Worst part about being Primal: I'm really sick of explaining myself to people who don't give a sht about their diet and comment on everything I eat or don't eat. Also, lack of booze (which is probably a good thing for my drunk ass).

    Age (If you want): 41

    How Primal are you: 95% (it's a little hard as I bake for friends on a weekly basis I need to taste and try what I am making to ensure of quality!!) Maybe I am a little more primal than 95%.

    Do you drink coffee or tea: both!

    Motivator for switching to Primal: husband has been following Peter Attia / Gary Taubes low carb / high fat diet and has recently started following the Primal lifestyle with the exercises etc. We want out family to be healthy and since changing our diet we have seen a huge difference with our kids, especially our son who was having health issues with his energy levels, anemia, etc. He is a completely different and happier boy!!

    Favorite exercise: Squats

    Favorite Primal food: Meat, vegies!

    Best part about being Primal: The amount of energy that you have and the way it makes you feel!!!
