    I'd just like that thank Dr. Sisson for this book, honestly I was at my wits end. I used to be in fantastic shape, I mean model shape but with age, money issues and time constraints Ive grown dangerously obese. This diet is my last chance and best shot to do something about it before my health takes a dangerous turn for the worse. Thanks again Doc!!!

    Hi everybody!

    I'm 30 years old, been primal for about two years.

    How Primal are you:
    That's a bit of an odd question, like it's a competition. I consider myself Primal.

    Do you consume dairy:
    Fucktons of dairy. Grass-fed whenever I can get it. Cheese, yogurt, kefir, HWC. I love breve lattes. Dairy and I are good friends.

    Do you drink coffee or tea:
    Both. I drink espresso mixed with HWC or half-and-half; I loathe and despise brewed coffee. Tea and I are boon companions, usually green or yerba mate.

    Motivator for switching to Primal:
    Husband wanted to try it.

    Favorite exercise:
    Yoga.

    Favorite Primal food:
    Bacon, bacon, bacon all the way.

    Best part about being Primal:
    Freedom from what I thought was a digestive disorder with constant flatulence, but turned out to be gluten intolerance. I'm 99% fart-free now!

    Worst part about being Primal:
    Trying to explain it to other people when they ask about it and then look at me like I have three heads.

    How Primal are you: Not very and just starting... Learning.... does this get any easier?

    Do you consume dairy: Yes

    Do you drink coffee or tea: Coffee and Tea

    Motivator for switching to Primal: A very good friend of mine switched, and spoke of how great he felt! He wound up competing in a crazy obstacle course run of sorts, and then I saw how GREAT he looked! He told me it was wonderful because he was never hungry. I was sold. I tired it for a month, and I can't begin to say how great I felt. However, the demands of being a full-time caregiver for a vascular dementia parent with a sweet-tooth the size of Montana made it more than a little challenging. So now I have realized that I am NOT healthy! I need to make this change! I have to commune with my more primal side. It is more challenging than I though it would be, but I am confident that I am going to succeed!

    Favorite exercise: I LOVE Running. I know, I know, but I really did love it. However, I have to find an alternative. I have gained so much weight since I quit 10 years ago.

    Favorite Primal food: Steak, clearly!

    Best part about being Primal: I love how great it makes me feel. Now if I can kick the grain habit, and learn to avoid the sweet tooth, then I think I will enjoy it more.

    Worst part about being Primal: I really have a HUGE sweet tooth!

    Age (If you want):52

    How Primal are you: was 90% for quite a few months, now am struggling to stay 25%

    Do you consume dairy: rarely (I love good European cheeses)

    Do you drink coffee or tea: tea - all kinds

    Motivator for switching to Primal: I was "traditional" GF for years, then I started reading about "true" GF and the truth about all grains

    Favorite exercise: interval training

    Favorite Primal food: hmm....that's a tough one......

    Best part about being Primal: When I was following a primal diet more closely I felt energetic, positive and had clear thinking.

    Worst part about being Primal: Not sure if this is any way connected to eating primal, but a lately I have been feeling sooo unbelievably tired that I had trouble making it through the day. I began reading about the dangers of eating "low carb" and the impact on the body of going low carb suddenly. I have added more grains back into my diet and now am feeling better again. Coincidence? Any feed back would be appreciated.
