I know that there are people reading this forum that are fully primal, partially primal, and are considering it. I thought that I'd put some questions together to cover these things just to get an idea of who's out there.

    The Questions:

    Your location:
    New Jersey....Brooklyn girl at heart

    Age (If you want): 55 and finally beginning to live.

    How Primal are you:
    I don't know. I recently began eating gluten free. My heath improved tremendously but I know there are more issues that I need to address. I was directed to this site from an online friend who is also eating gluten free.

    Do you consume dairy:

    Do you drink coffee or tea:
    Green Tea..from a Korean market not from the grocery store.

    Motivator for switching to Primal:
    I'm sick of being sick. Have been in pain, emotionally imbalanced, adhd...the list goes on and on for most of my life (age 12 best guess). Things progressed until I was until practically bed ridden every day. Unable to work, or have any sort of life. Cutting out just the gluten has made an enormous difference. But I started to notice when I eat NO grains I feel even better.

    Favorite exercise:
    Walking now that I can.

    Favorite Primal food:
    Can I only pick one? Love asparagus, all leafy greens, berries, nuts, fruits.

    Best part about being Primal:
    I can LIVE for the first time in my life.

    Worst part about being Primal:
    Other people's intolerance.

    I'm a 58 year old woman in Washington state.
    I'm mostly primal, but for some dark chocolate, since I don't like it well enough to go crazy with it. For fruit, I mostly just have berries and an occasional orange. For some reason lately, I've been craving Pringles of all things!! I hope it's just a short-lived phase. They can't possibly be good for me.
    I had to stop eating dairy when i found out I'm allergic to cow's milk. But now I have to find something for my coffee. Coconut milk sucks (for coffee purposes). I mostly drink decaf coffee, herbal tea and water... once in a while a Zero vitamin water.
    My motivation for going primal: just tired of feeling like crap and being in pain all the time. I've been a hard-core sugar adict for my whole life, was told I have fibromyalgia, and super overweight.
    Favorite exercise: I've been doing SuperSlow weight training, which is the only exercise I've ever stuck with and felt good about. I love being really strong, but desperately want to drop the weight.
    Favorite Primal food: Costo sells a great organic ground beef. I mix it with taco seasoning, black olives and a boatload of fresh spinach. It boils all down to a great dish.
    Best part about being Primal: Feeling a little better, walking better, my blood sugar has dropped from diabetes range to 94! Weight loss is extremely slow, but I also found out my hormones are all screwed up and other stuff I'm trying to fix with the help of a naturopath.
    Worst part about being Primal: The "look" people give me when I try to explain it. I also miss ice cream, but I can't be trusted to have "just a little." I also worry about getting bored with not enough variety.
    I'm happy to have found this site.

    Hi everyone

    I'm from Western Australia and I'm almost 4 weeks into Primal lifestyle

    I've been a naturopath for almost 12 years, although haven't 'professionally' practiced for close to 5 years, I got disheartened by the supplementing nature of the industry and was the only real way to make money, so I changed course and am now post-grad after finishing a degree in politics in 2011. I'm studying humanitarian intervention in foreign countries - a long way from my naturopathic past but Primal/Paleo has reminded me of my original passion! (and maybe 'humanitarian intervention' has something related to 'dietary interventions' after all! haha) But my background in naturopathy has def helped a lot in understanding the rationale as well as the explanations of physiological processes.

    I'm still psyching myself up for organ meats!! But I'd say I'm pretty close, maybe 90% primal- no refined sugar and 100% grain free, largely organic/grass fed meats, free range eggs, loads of yummy fats. Yes to a little dairy, mainly organic cheese and only small amounts. And relatively unprocessed foods - olive oil, coconut oil, tinned tomatoes are the processed foods I can think of that I consume regularly. No to coffee and only detox teas, various brands and white tea, loads of rainwater from my parents rain water tank (a blessing!) and quite a bit of San Pell mineral water.

    Looong history of reactive hypoglycaemia - i just got fed up with it controlling my life in so many ways. Stumbled across paleo/primal, although I have heard it mentioned many times over the years - it was just time!

    Fave food? two at the moment, bolognese sauce (mince, little carrot, onion, garlic, fresh herbs, tomatoes) over half a steamed head of broccoli. Other fave: salad with various lettuces, asparagus, fine chopped red cabbage, diced avocado with a dressing of roquefort cheese in olive oil. - I've only just discovered this and have had it three times in the last three days!

    Worst part of primal: feeling so dedicated and into it and harassing my parents to change, to no avail (yet). I must be the most annoying daughter on earth. I will keep trying, haha. I feel like a religious missionary sometimes and it must annoy my friends but they smile and nod.

    Best: feeling like i've found the key to the rest of my life as a healthy individual with my blood sugar (and various offshoots from that) under control - I thought it could never happen.

    Fave exercise: just being active again and not being a slave to my blood sugar - treadmill, intervals, fitball, dancing around the lounge room.

    Happy : )
