    Starting Over

    I tried this over a year and a half ago and I just was not able to keep it up, I lacked the motivation. Well, 17 months later, I am less healthy, have less energy and am still searching for a better answer. I am going to take another stab at PB, this time with some friends to help stay supportive. I gave up Soda and Fast Food last fall, and have been able to do that, now it is time to take another leap. I plan on cutting out sugars this month as a start. If there is anyone in my area who wants to do some information exchange or needs support like I do, let me know.

    Hi everyone! Just wanted to introduce myself...

    Your location: Fraser Coast, Queensland, Australia

    Age (If you want): 23

    How Primal are you: Well I don't consume grains or junk food, just vegies and meat, but I tend to use jarred sauces etc to taste my meals. I exercise primally too...I also tend to prefer beer (low carb) over wine and like baking with primal approved ingredients.

    Do you consume dairy: Yup. Love my coffee milky.

    Do you drink coffee or tea: Haha ^^...mainly coffee.

    Motivator for switching to Primal: A desire to grow old in the best possible shape, and give my kids the best to start to life possible.

    Favorite exercise: I HATE exercise!!!

    Favorite Primal food: Italian meatballs :-D

    Best part about being Primal: I have so much more energy, I'm back within a healthy weight, I never crave for unhealthy foods and I never have sugar crashes - even when I'm hungry I have enough energy until I can get a healthy meal.

    Worst part about being Primal: I don't think there's any bad part, but I do wish it was easier to be primal in social situations, especially when drinking is involved.

    Hi, My name is Melissa and I live in Natchez, Ms. I will be honest, I have no idea what this Primal is that you speak of so I guess I really can't say anything on that. I will however figure it out! But I can tell you why I'm here. I started walking a lot because I have no transportation and I find myself loving the way I feel when I do walk. I was also addicted to meth for a year and now my DOC is walking! I was curious as to what the physical changes it does to your body are and all the benefits. I also want , now, to learn nutrition and live healthy and long! Thank you, Melissa in MS.

    Your location: Kentucky

    Age : late 30's

    How Primal are you: sort of

    Do you consume dairy: dairy is my big non-primal habit. Raw milk, heavy cream, cheese, butter, mmmmm.

    Do you drink coffee or tea: once every couple of weeks with the aforementioned heavy cream

    Motivator for switching to Primal: I had been doing the Harcombe Diet with great success (I no longer am overweight) but wanted the last bit of my former wheat belly to go away. Toning up seems in order as well.
    Since August, I no longer consume caffeine, refined sugar (except what is in 86% chocolate), wheat or other grains, potatoes, and highly processed foods. I feel so much better than I have in years, it's amazing! I've been reading PB for the last few days and here I am!

    Favorite exercise: Um, I'm not that far along yet. I do enjoy rambling in the woods though.

    Favorite Primal food: Um, steak, onions, celery, and red peppers cooked in butter or coconut oil.

    Best part about being Primal: Further improving my health. (Thanks Zoe Harcombe for getting me this far!)

    Worst part about being Primal: Trying to cut back on dairy.
