    By the way, how do I find primal groks in my town to connect with? Also, I managed to start an album and load a picture, but I can't figure out how to move it to my profile picture. Help!

    Hello there to youuu! :-)

    Your location: Boise, ID

    Age (If you want): 25

    How Primal are you: Umm, 50%! But that's because I'm new and haven't actually 'gone primal' yet. ;-)

    Do you consume dairy: Yes, but I've realized that too much is hard on me so I've started moderating it...

    Do you drink coffee or tea: Rarely. I drink tea more in the winter, though.

    Motivator for switching to Primal: I've been feeling crappy for the past few years, and I'm way too young to feel like that! I've dreamed for a long time of feeling healthy and looking good, and after a lot of hard work and a few life experiences, and quitting smoking 4 months ago, my confidence has dramatically improved and I'm ready to focus on my lifestyle change.

    Favorite exercise: Hiking, playing soccer, swimming, or anything Crossfit-ish... I can't pick just one!

    Favorite Primal food: Steak or seafood

    Best part about being Primal: Although I haven't gone Primal yet, there are days where I successfully avoid grains/dairy and the following days my stomach sure seems to appreciate it. I love not worrying "Is what I just ate going to make me hate life in 30 minutes?" :-)

    Worst part about being Primal: I don't know yet!

    Do you drink coffee or tea: coffee and herbal tea on occasion.

    I live in California

    How Primal are you:
    I'm about 90% percent primal. Recently I changed to grass fed beef, and grass fed butter. I try to fallow the primal way of life as strictly as I can, though sometimes it is rather difficult.
    Do you consume dairy:I do consume dairy, but rarely. I've learned to cut my milk consumption down(very difficult thing for me to do) and I am trying to find a good place to get greek yogurt since most stores only sell fat free.

    Do you drink coffee or tea:
    Yes I do drink tea but not to often.
    Motivator for switching to Primal:
    Well, I've always tried to eat in a healthy manor. I spent some time as a vegetarian, but soon grew tired of how difficult it was to remain vegetarian. It just didn't feel natural to me. At that time I was incredibly active, and worked out a lot. That was two years ago, this past year I started my first year at an actual state university in california and hit my highest weight (210) pounds and started shifting back to that vegetarian life style. Personally I just wanted to be healthy. I worked at a pizza place, that I recently quite (thankfully! That place was the cause of every ounce of my stress). In my first year of college I met, and started having conversations with a person that was on what he called the "primal lifestyle". Naturally, I was intrigued but also skeptic. Being able to eat all the meat and veggies you want. What's up with that? That's bad for the health, or at least that's what I was thinking at the time. I talked to him more, and being my "anthropological" normal self (before I switch to a Japanese major I was an anthropology major and spent three years in the major) I observed him, documenting in my head how he acted, his energy levels, all of that good stuff. I took switching to a primal lifestyle logically, scientifically if you will. I observed and read what I could read about it. I still wasn't sold on what my friend was saying but, to me, is was sound. Anthropologically speaking, the human race didn't evolve on grains, thus we should be able to survive without them. Then, during my winter break from school I decided to try being primal out. That was 7 months ago, and I have never once regretted the decision.
    Favorite exercise:
    I love walking. Just a nice walk at any time of the day is the best.
    Favorite Primal food:
    definitely eggs.
    Best part about being Primal:
    The amount of energy I have probably is comparable to when I was a child. Also, I sleep soundly at night.

    Worst part about being Primal:
    Eating out at restaurants is difficult. I usually just get sushi or curry and that's it.

    Age (If you want): 33

    How Primal are you: Just started

    Do you consume dairy: Butter, cheese

    Do you drink coffee or tea: sometimes coffee with unsweetened vanilla coconut almond milk

    Motivator for switching to Primal: Had success with LC; I had my second baby 3 months ago; want to eat healthy unprocessed foods, enjoy my sports and play with my kiddos. It makes the most sense of all eating lifestyles. Husband is on board with eating unprocessed, but he still thinks whole grains are fine.

    Favorite exercise: I did sprints for the first time today and I had a ton of fun. Mountain biking (I raced the past 2 years until I was pregnant again), Zumba.

    Favorite Primal food: Fruit, Dark chocolate, bacon, eggs, butter

    Best part about being Primal: feeling like I'm making good choices and the emphasis on PLAY

    Worst part about being Primal: Love ice cream; I could eat too much fruit easily; husband not totally on board; my 3 year old gets fed SAD at grandma's house. She's a carb-o-holic like I used to be.

    Hi! I'm Meghan!

    Your location: Syracuse, NY

    Age (If you want): 28

    How Primal are you: depends on the day, but I'd say averaging right around 80%

    Do you consume dairy: Occasionally. Cheese is really the only dairy I do, and it's not often.

    Do you drink coffee or tea: Heck yes.

    Motivator for switching to Primal: I'm a fat kid. I read the book, I get the science, and so far I'm down 44 pounds.

    Favorite exercise: I do the cross-fit thing. Just started May 15th. That has helped immensely with the weight loss.

    Favorite Primal food: I can't choose. Give me all the meat and I'm a happy girl.

    Best part about being Primal: I'm never hungry, I rarely crave sugar/bread/the other crap I used to eat, I'm happier, and I'm getting sexier. What's not to love!?

    Worst part about being Primal: Having to explain it to people who don't wanna hear it/don't get it. When they get belligerent, I blame the "diet" on my trainer, so they just shut up. If they genuinely want to hear about it, then I try my best to explain.
