    Hello All....


    Your location: Scotland, UK


    Age: 32


    How Primal are you: Approx 5-6 days a week. I don't think it matters too much if you have the occasional cheat meal/treat.


    Do you consume dairy: Occasionally.


    Do you drink coffee or tea: Yeah - lots of black tea... approx 10 cups a day.


    Motivator for switching to Primal: Desire to maximise my health & fitness and generally feel better. I read various websites on health & fitness e.g. Crossfit.com, Art De Vany, etc and primal seems the best way to go. The whole evolutionary history points to humans developing via a primal diet, so not following one would be damaging - it's against our nature, the health statistics of modern/convenience food diets prove this. It makes sense to me.


    When I started a primal/paleo diet about a year ago I cut out starchy carbs, and about a month later I had lost half a stone (7 pounds), and over the same period I did no exercise whatsoever. I thought if I can benefit that much & still feel good with no exercise, then once I start working out again I'll get great results.


    Favorite exercise: Crossfit stuff...Pull Ups, Handstands - basically bodyweight exercises


    Favorite Primal food: Venison...no chicken...venison...


    Best part about being Primal: Learning more about food, which hopefully I'll benefit from healthwise in the decades to come.


    Worst part about being Primal: Temptation to junk food. Years of eating non-primal food e.g. cakes, biscuits, pasta, ice cream, etc, has hard wired my brain to desire junk food. McDonald's, Burger King, pizzas, etc are still some of my favourite meals....

    Deepthought, ecological (ekologisk) is called organic in English most of the time : ) Whenever I saw ecological my housemates giggle at me.


    So, to the introduction.

    Favorite Primal food: Butternut squash, roast chicken, almonds, strawberries, blueberries, the list just goes on.

    Best part about being Primal: I wouldn't know yet

    The Questions:


    Your location: San Angelo, TX y'all!

    Age (If you want): 31

    How Primal are you: Fairly. I don't eat all organic and grassfed like I'd like to (economic reasons) and i still drink too much beer.


    Do you consume dairy: Yes. Cheese. Sour cream. Heavy cream.


    Do you drink coffee or tea: 4 cups of coffee every day without fail. Green tea occasionally.


    Motivator for switching to Primal: I've actually been eating this way (mostly) for 6 or 7 years (before I'd heard of "primal") and that was for health/fitness reasons. It's become intuitive since then. After 2 or 3 years of being WAY off, I'm trying to get back to it for the same reasons.


    Favorite exercise: Deadlifting.


    Favorite Primal food: Fatty, smoked brisket.


    Best part about being Primal: Meat indulgence.


    Worst part about being Primal: The self-discipline. Was in the "habit" for a long time. Now I find it HARD to get back into it.
