    The Questions:


    Your location: West Midlands, United Kingdom

    Age (If you want): 25

    How Primal are you: Strictly primal, it's incredibly rare for me to consume anything that isn't primal.

    Do you consume dairy: I used to, but recently I've restricted it to one cup of coffee per day on my work lunch break.

    Do you drink coffee or tea: I do - black coffee or herbal teas with the exception of the above.

    Motivator for switching to Primal: The health benefits - I went from taking ten tablets to no tablets per day. A no-brainer, really.

    Favorite exercise: Freestyle sparring is a lot of fun!

    Favorite Primal food: I love steak - I also love an energy bar I create using dark chocolate, a variety of nuts, honey (optional to sweeten) and raisins.

    Best part about being Primal: More energy, you look great naked and you eat amazing food - what's not to love, really?

    Worst part about being Primal: When people bring in office 'treats' they tend not to be primal, but I can live with that. And perhaps the weird looks people give you when they look at your footwear !

    How Primal are you: 95ish percent?

    Do you consume dairy: I've got no problem with lactose.

    Do you drink coffee or tea: Tea most definitely.

    Favorite Primal food: I consider myself a foodie, as in "I love and appreciate food" not as in "I am a food snob", so... I love everything. I enjoy my meats and my veggies alike.

    Worst part about being Primal: As I mentioned, I love all my food, so I think I'll miss the flavor of bread and rice.

    Hi ya! Been here for a couple weeks, but never posted in here . . . so here goes, for those interested.

    Your location: Colorado (at least for now)

    Age: 27 (but feel like 25)

    How Primal are you: I'd say about 60/40, but working towards 100% primal and 80% paleo

    Do you consume dairy: Some, occasional butter and pastured heavy cream for cooking . . . a rare slice of cheese or cup of yogurt (rare as in once a week maybe)

    Do you drink coffee or tea: Not really

    Motivator for switching to Primal: Wanting to lose weight, but also the science is convincing to me and it aligns well with my values as a humane omnivore and lover of the outdoors

    Favorite exercise: Hiking, playing tennis, watching hockey (not as much of a workout as playing, but it does get my blood pumping and I jump up and down a fair bit, LOL)

    Favorite Primal food: Dark chocolate, close second - shrimp!

    Best part about being Primal: That I can still eat dark chocolate. LOL . . . apart from that, don't know yet - I'll tell you when I find out.

    Worst part about being Primal: I love garlic bread and cupcakes . . . I will miss them.
    Healthy Bucket List:
    • Summit all of Colorado's 14-ers
    • Hike the Appalachian Trail
    • Do a real pull-up
    • Run a 5k
    • Be "Hot For Training Camp"

    Your location: Grapevine, TX

    Age (If you want): 39

    How Primal are you: Weaning off of dairy and hidden/guilty sugars

    Do you consume dairy: Yes, but tapering off. Why should I consume cow milk in any form?

    Do you drink coffee or tea: 3-4 cups of coffee daily. Coffee is said to help with gout.

    Motivator for switching to Primal: I'm convinced that modern diets are harmful. I am operating sans-gallbladder, and my innards are hyper-sensitive to most carbs.

    Favorite exercise: Walking/hiking. Swimming is a close second.

    Favorite Primal food: Bacon. Ribeye steaks are hard to beat.

    Best part about being Primal: I want to grunt and growl when I eat a steak. Primal. Well, that and the decimation of fat.

    Worst part about being Primal: I have been conditioned to reject this way of eating. I must overcome inner obstacles.

    I have seen great success with carb restriction in the past, but have been undone by sugar cravings. The emphasis on fats is a game-changer for me, and should help with my satisfaction without sugars. The depth of this community may be the foundation I need to stick to a better way of life. I love your enthusiasm and mutual support!
