    How Primal are you: I've been eating Primal for 4 weeks. I do have moderation foods, like nuts and coffee with a little milk, but keep them a small part of my diet.

    Do you consume dairy: I didn't at first, but I started having coffee again and was buying whole pastured unhomogonised and usually organic milk for my son and started having a little with coffee and I love it. I seem to be slightly lactose intolerant though so I don't think I'll get into dairy any further.

    Do you drink coffee or tea: Yes as I said I'm drinking coffee, organic and unsweetened, 1-2 times a day. I love that the PB is flexible.

    Motivator for switching to Primal: I was happily eating vegan, with mainly brown rice, dates and lots of veggies, then I suddenly wanted to try paleo/primal when I had the thought that grains are such a civilisation food! So four weeks ago I bought and cooked for myself fresh meat for the first time in my life! And I never felt bad! Actually it felt great and I started to lose weight straight away and look glowy. Then I started to research what I was doing and now it just seems like the healthy thing to do.

    Favorite exercise: walking barefoot on grass, useful garden/yard work and jumping.

    Favorite Primal food: Chicken drumsticks, roasted with the skin, and hard-boiled eggs.

    Best part about being Primal: Feeling more satisfied! And all of the delicious food!

    Worst part about being Primal: Feeling nervous about telling all my vegan and vegetarian family members and friends my change of lifestyle.

    Age (If you want): 19

    How Primal are you: 90%. i can't accomplish the 2do rule. i am all the day in the car, from house, to work, university, etc. (distancies are too long here)


    Do you consume dairy: A little of cheese, and milk.

    Do you drink coffee or tea: Yes, both.

    Motivator for switching to Primal: I have started gym for two weeks, all my friends / trainers, said to me to eat 6 times a day, granola, pasta, rice etc. I have done this just for 1 week, on that weekend i felt so bad, some acne appeared in my face and my stomach was about collapse . I didn't feel better with this "6 times eating", in fact, i didn't see nothing about my "metabolism getting faster".
    I started to investigate when i found markdailyapple, my diet turned 180.

    I have LgA immunodeficiency. I hope that this will change. I live with chronic sinuses and medicaments

    Favorite exercise:lift weight, i do workout 3 times a week, just lifting weight.

    Favorite Primal food: meat, and eggs ( my mum hates me when i do them in the morning haha)

    Best part about being Primal: i feel better, don't have the hunger that i had.

    Worst part about being Primal: When i have to explain people that grains are BAD. Here in Argentina, diet got a lot of corn oils, frits, and pasta, of course meat too. At least we have got great cows.

    Hope that you can understand me, English is not my native language, im studying it twice a week.
    Respects from South America.
