I have again found the light!!! I have waged wart against my gut!
Here are my answers!
[Your location:[/B] Riyadh, Saudi Arabia - (I'm British, working over there)
Age (If you want): 37
How Primal are you: Just starting out and trying my best, although it's hard to get grass fed/Free range meats and poultry here.
Do you consume dairy: Occasionally. I do like Halloumi cheese and the odd dash of heavy cream. I did Atkins before and got lazy, not through losing faith in Atkins. My terrible will power. I think I overdid dairy while on Atkins though.
Do you drink coffee or tea: A cup of coffee a day with almond milk and coconut oil. I love green tea, especially with fresh mint or a little lemon peel for flavour.
Motivator for switching to Primal: I was converted to low-carb through Atkins, which changed my way of eating and thinking, however personal circumstances/being down made me go off course. I regained the 10 KG that I had lost. ... I love the fact that Primal os more flexible when it comes to the types of foods to be eaten. It does not insist on gradually re-introducing certain foods so you get carb paranoia. On Atkins I got too bogged down with stages etc. I still watch my carbs though as I have 35 lbs to lose and hate my gut.
Favorite exercise: swimming, cycling, walking and skipping
Favorite Primal food: Steak, roast lamb, all the grean leef veggies and strawberry/avocado smoothie with home-made almond milk and coconut milk.... yumm!
Best part about being Primal: It has given me direction in life and helped me to regain confidence in myself as i KNOW it will work. I will never go back to the hell of low cal/low fat
Worst part about being Primal: Sometimes not knowing how to maximise my fat shedding. There is actually no bad side to primal. The only concern is that I cannot always get organing/grassfed foods, but I try my best. I have also not cancelled out dairy. I do like the odd indulgence.
