    And that's me. Oh. And I cook. A lot.

    Funny you mention that. On my walk, I saw stevia plants for sale @ the local WholeFools store this evening. Its called Sweet Leaf in South America. Buy the plant & pick/use the leaves(it would grow like crazy in FL, it's a shrub), or buy the extracted white powder online (Stevita brand) or an organic extract @ Trader Joe's of you have them in your area of Florida.

    Some people on these boards insist it spikes insulin, but not of in my use it, I haven't noticed that effect. I used to use it a lot, pretty much daily. Now I use it a couple times a week, sometimes not at all. There is 0 calories & 0 carbs in it & it's a green plant's leaf. Been used for a long long time by native peoples & the Japanese have used it in their industries as a sweetener for decades. There's science behind it, look into it if you are the curious sort.

    How Primal are you:
    I've made a very slow transition for maybe three or four months, but now I'm starting to get pretty hardcore.

    Yes, but not milk.

    Do you drink coffee or tea:
    I might drink coffee once a year and tea once every three months.

    Motivator for switching to Primal:
    I learned about the PB from a libertarian website and it just made sense to me. I suppose my motivation is to simply live healthier, the way we evolved to live.

    I'm an arborist so obviously my favorite exercise is climbing trees.

    Favorite Primal food:
    MEAT

    Best part about being Primal:
    I have probably cut myself down to 75-150g of carbs a day and I just feel better. Plus I love eating saturated fats.

    Worst part about being Primal:
    The grocery bill.
