    Your location: central NY state


    Age (If you want): 25


    How Primal are you: I'm still easing into it - keeping it under 150 carbs per day at the moment and eating about 80-90% primal foods


    Do you consume dairy: Yes - I plan on keeping cheese and some yogurt in my diet, and a little cream in my coffee


    Do you drink coffee or tea: coffee.. I guess I just said that, heh


    Motivator for switching to Primal: to help me lose these last 15 or so pounds, but mostly because I'm disgusted with all the junk I was eating, and I want to help keep myself and my husband free from diabetes (he doesn't cook, so he'll be eating primal-ish by default).


    Favorite exercise: cardio-kickboxing classes


    Favorite Primal food: roasted asparagus, deviled eggs, anything with BACON


    Best part about being Primal: I'm still counting my calories, and it's MUCH easier to stay within my goal range without feeling hungry all day long.


    Worst part about being Primal: trying to decide which non-primal items in the pantry/freezer to keep (and eat in tiny portions, or feed to my husband) and which to throw out... I'm too poor to throw out everything. =[

    I'm blogging again, at least a little bit.

    Your location: JC, Kansas


    Age (If you want): 34


    How Primal are you:

    About 80% at this point but will probably be 90% in a month or so.


    Do you consume dairy:

    Yes - I love cheese and buy cheese from Raw milk. I also drink organic whole milk from time to time.


    Do you drink coffee or tea:

    coffee every once in a while with full cream


    Motivator for switching to Primal:

    Need to lose 100 pounds, tired of feeling horrible after I eat and then being hungry an hour later. I&#39;ve been looking for a change in my diet for a while and found information about Weston A. Price and my research has lead me here. Been primal for about 2 weeks and have never felt better and am no longer craving food.


    Favorite exercise:

    Weight lifting


    Favorite Primal food:

    Eggs, bacon, steak, fish, sunflower seeds and nuts


    Best part about being Primal:

    I eat less food and feel satisfied much longer after a meal. I feel more energetic and I don&#39;t feel bloated and sluggish all the time.


    Worst part about being Primal:

    I haven&#39;t found anything yet. I&#39;ve done tests to see how food affects me, where I eat primal for two days and then eat "normally" for a day and I just feel awful that day and until I go back to primal. I think it&#39;s probably the best change I could have made for my health.

    Do you consume dairy: Yes


    Do you drink coffee or tea: Yes, sometimes too much (0-3 cups a day)


    Motivator for switching to Primal: Beyond the battle with weight? It just makes sense to me.


    Favorite exercise: Lately? A body weight squat exercise were you squat then explosively jump up landing into another squat and coming up normal.

    The Questions:


    Your location: Illinois


    Age (If you want):46


    How Primal are you: About 60% right now. Mostly eating meat, veggies/fruits, and nuts, but a grain-based carb gets thrown in occasionally. Further, my diet is mostly chain market-driven with few organic/pastured products.


    Do you consume dairy: Yup! Love it.


    Do you drink coffee or tea:Coffee occasionally. I am transitioning to it from diet soda.


    Motivator for switching to Primal:Health and fitness and weight

    Best part about being Primal: No bloat. I can&#39;t believe how much better I feel from a pain/bloat perspective. I used to think I was becoming arthritic, but it seems my pain and swelling was a reaction to too much grain.


    Worst part about being Primal: I love the taste of corn products!

    Hi, I&#39;m Julie and I&#39;m new here. I have been surfing the site for a week or so, and my book just came in the mail today (yay!). I thought I would answer the questions and I look forward to getting to know everyone.


    Your location: Northwest Hills of Connecticut

    Age (If you want): 41

    How Primal are you: Not very, YET.

    Do you consume dairy: Nope. Allergic to casein and whey.

    Do you drink coffee or tea: Yes, one mug of joe most days, and herbal teas (1-2 mugs) daily.

    Motivator for switching to Primal: Health. I need to kick this sugar habit and reach optimal health.

    Favorite exercise: Probably yoga, but I love kettlebells and heavy weights too.

    Favorite Primal food: I love all veggies.

    Best part about being Primal: The health rewards I&#39;m hoping!

    Worst part about being Primal: I don&#39;t know yet, but I know as someone who has been gluten- and dairy-free for the past year, it is hard to skip out on the traditional party food ... and eating out has become somewhat of an adventure as I frequently get ill after (I have multiple food allergies and have Celiac).

    How Primal are you: more and more by the day.


    Do you consume dairy: yes, heavy cream in the coffee and some cheese. switched over to coconut milk in my protein shakes...


    Do you drink coffee or tea: coffee in the am 1 cup and I usually have some brewed green tea in the fridge for the afternoon.


    Motivator for switching to Primal: Get leaner and healthy. Started January 9th at 6&#39;2" and 268lb since then I have lost 12 lb. and my blood pressure has dropped from and average of 140/85 to around 120/75. I have tons more energy specifically in the afternoon because I am not digesting a carb heavy lunch anymore.

    Worst part about being Primal: For me it has been letting go of ice cream or sweet treats as part of my everyday ritual. Although after a couple weeks into it I had a pepsi for superbowl and that gave me a serious headache. I still indulge in a small bowl of ice cream ocassionally or a piece of chocolate..but ocassionally is the key word....
