    How Primal am I? Well, I used the Paleo diet "mostly" for the past 10 years. July 2010 started the unexplained weight gain of 10 lbs. August 2011 was diagnosed with adrenal fatigue and this started the 40 lb weight gain. All while mostly eating Paleo. I have now been on GAPS, without dairy, for the past 9 months which is for the most part Paleo. I also have a diagnosis for severe chronic fatigue.

    Do I consume dairy? No, except for butter.

    Do I drink coffee or tea? I drink one shot of organic espresso a day.

    MOtivator for switching to Primal: I truly believe the concept, and after starting it found many unwanted symptoms disappearing.

    Favorite exercise: walking

    Favorite primal food: chicken liver pate

    Best part: helps me regulate my insulin

    worst part: hard to eat at someone else's home.

    In other forums I've been a member of in the past - at least for small communities - there's been a 'introduce yourself' thread with some questions that people can answer. I know that there are people reading this forum that are fully primal, partially primal, and are considering it. I thought that I'd put some questions together to cover these things just to get an idea of who's out there.


    The Questions:


    Your location: Atlanta, Georgia

    Age (If you want): just turned 47...eek.

    How Primal are you: not a lot(yet)

    Do you consume dairy: yes

    Do you drink coffee or tea: yes yes

    Motivator for switching to Primal: get healthy, lose weight, prevent disease and not in that order.

    Favorite exercise: dancing, I guess.

    Favorite Primal food: berries

    Best part about being Primal: don't know yet

    Worst part about being Primal: ???

    Your location: North Carolina, USA

    Age (If you want): 33

    How Primal are you: Nutrition = mostly. Exercise = working on it.

    Do you consume dairy: Some cheese, but much much less than before.

    Do you drink coffee or tea: Coffee occasionally.

    Motivator for switching to Primal: Weight loss and overall health.

    Favorite exercise: Any physical activity that can be turned into a competition.

    Favorite Primal food: A big, thick, grass-fed filet with grilled zucchini and portabellas.

    Best part about being Primal: It doesn't feel like a diet and I have no guilt when I deviate...I simply count that as part of my 20% and move on. Oh, and the weight loss (37 pounds in 4 months so far).

    Worst part about being Primal: The constant need to explain to people why I am not eating the pizza/sandwiches/doughnuts/cupcakes/etc that are provided. I am always "the picky one" when eating with a group of people. Also, the eye rolls when I start sentences with "According to the Primal Blueprint..." or "Grok would/wouldn't..."

    My location: Seattle area. Close enough.

    My age: 50

    How Primal am I? Pretty darn primal. And getting more so all the time.

    Do I consume dairy? A little. Not much. Mostly fermented (Full fat plain yogurt and cheese)

    Do I drink coffee or tea? Dude, I live in Seattle, and my grandparents were Swedish. Coffee is like mother's milk to me. I drink it black, strong, and organic...though as I get older, I have to stop midafternoon if I want to sleep.

    Motivator for switching to primal: Tired of always gaining weight and being depressed and out of energy. When I read about primal, something clicked...it said, this is how you are supposed to eat. I have been easing into it for a couple of months.

    Favorite exercise: walking outdoors. When it's not raining. Otherwise, yoga and dancing with the xbox.

    Favorite primal food: BACON!!!!

    Best part about being primal: BACON!!!! and avocados. and grass fed beef. and omelettes. You mean I can eat all this AND get healthier? SOLD!

    Worst part about being primal: cutting back on the beer. Way back. Sob. (OK, seriously, I love good beer.) But also the sheer amount of cooking...I work almost full time and am in grad school, time to cook is limited. I miss cans of soup and frozen dinners. (Not really, but they do make life easier.)

    I am a female, 50 year old grad student who has fought her weight and depression for her entire life. While I have lost a couple of pounds so far in the six weeks or so I have been doing this, I think my increased energy and happiness seal the bill for me. As I start to ramp up the exercise (right now I have a bad ankle that makes walking painful, getting it looked at next week) I expect the weight loss to jump up. Also, I am still easing into the lifestyle, though I am at least to the 80/20 mark food-wise.
