    Hello,

    PinesgirlinVT here from Northern Vermont, actually very close to Burlington Vermont. I am going to turn 46 in August.
    I am 100% Primal/Paleo except for a cheat meal once a week....with a few beers.....I know, bad carbs bad carbs! But Microbrews in Vermont are sooooo goood!
    I do not consume dairy, I do not drink coffee....I do drink tea, mostly herbal that I blend myself.
    I switched to Primal because I just couldn't get rid of the weight and I constantly felt bloated. I went totally Raw Vegan for a period of time(about 7-8 months and I felt great, but to stay satiated I had to eat an incredible amount of fruit and vegetables).
    I needed the Protein so Primal/Paleo works awesome for me!
    My favorite excercise.....Hmmmm I'd have to say snatches...I love weight lifting.
    My favorite Primal food....this is a tough one????? A really good grass fed burger or a really good Delmonico steak or a super yummy piece of Salmon.
    Best part of being Primal.....I feel awesome!
    Worst part....sometimes it is tough watching people chow down on a super yummy piece of Tiramisu or a decadent piece of pecan pie! oh well! I am healthy and strong!

    Primal Washington State

    The Questions:


    Your location: Washington State- Northwest Peninsula area

    Age (If you want): 27

    How Primal are you: mostly- I do consume raw or fermented dairy

    Do you consume dairy: Yes local and raw mostly and maybe 2 times per week

    Do you drink coffee or tea: YES I live in the Seattle area- we have excellent coffee selections; I have about 1 cup per day

    Motivator for switching to Primal: Severe PMS, neck pain/inflammatory symptoms, blood sugar stabilization and disordered eating patterns. I was mostly vegan prior to Primal for several years. I am a health coach and work with clients now healing through Paleo/Primal nutritional therapy- this is a strong motivator for me to walk my talk.

    Favorite exercise: Hiking with a Big pack in the Olympic Mountains

    Favorite Primal food: Experimenting with salad dressings due to lack of good oils in store bought ones; roasted grilled veggies- all varieties; I love to balance meat with veggies for each.... it is different.... for me it is essential I have enough vegetables to calm inflammation (decrease acid in my body)

    Best part about being Primal: I was a dieter for years. I do not think about Fat in foods and feel sustained for the first time in so long. My body weight is naturally balanced itself out and I have a ton of energy. I love to teach this to others and see the transformation.

    Worst part about being Primal: ? well I guess it would have to be going out with family for dinners/b-days; the conversations can be annoying surrounding diet and most of us disagree. (I was raised vegetarian)

    Your location: Virginia Beach(currently)

    Age (If you want):20

    How Primal are you: 2 weeks in with no dairy, grains, legumes...except one major breakdown.

    Do you consume dairy: no

    Do you drink coffee or tea: yes

    Motivator for switching to Primal: I've been working to lose weight but got stuck after losing 20 pounds. I wasn't on any sort of diet other than just eating less and being more active. I decided to change my diet entirely and make my goal to be healthier rather than to lose x amount of pounds. I read about PB and it all made so much more sense than just counting calories.

    Favorite exercise: treading water

    Favorite Primal food: all kinds of salad

    Best part about being Primal: feeling healthier

    Worst part about being Primal: fresh produce and meats are expensive. I'm a broke college student.

    How Primal are you: Striving for 100%

    Do you consume dairy: Yes, approximately 1 to 2 Tbsp of Table cream most mornings in a cup of coffee. I also have ice cream from time to time, I'm working on building resistance to that temptation!

    Do you drink coffee or tea: I enjoy both coffee and tea, but I don't have to have either.

    Motivator for switching to Primal: To look good naked, of course! I just want to be healthy all around, honestly.

    Favorite exercise: I don't like exercise at all, but I've enjoyed being able to do pull-ups without the chair (even if I can only do 3 right now). My goal is at least 5 unassisted pull-ups before the end of the year.

    Favorite Primal food: Bacon and eggs as well as steak and broccoli... What's not to love about primal eats!

    Best part about being Primal: The best part of being primal so far has been feeling fantastic and having an abundance of energy. Other then my love for ice cream, it's been a very easy transition from the SAD.

    Worst part about being Primal: Nothing that I've found so far!

    Hi everyone, I'm Lynsey, I have been lurking on this site for about 2 weeks, so thought it was high time I introduced myself!

    Here goes:

    Your location: Glasgow, UK

    Age (If you want): 27

    How Primal are you: er, not sure how to answer this, I don't eat any grains or legumes at all, avoid grain oils as much as I can, partake in the odd diet coke. Just ate some shop bought Caesar dressing and won't be doing it again in a hurry due to the severe bloating I now have!

    Do you consume dairy: lots of butter, some cheese

    Do you drink coffee or tea: both - black, no sugar

    Motivator for switching to Primal: had some success with Atkins, but felt their pre packed items were unhealthy

    Favorite exercise: bodypump

    Favorite Primal food: Rib eye or avocado

    Best part about being Primal: feeling like im eating to nourish my body, not for pleasure

    Worst part about being Primal: cost of good meat

    How Primal are you: Not very.... I cut out grains a few months back, I've got a long way to go.

    Do you consume dairy: Cheese and every now and again cream. I tried making my own yoghurt from local biodynamic raw milk but my breastfeeding son had a mild reaction to it. I will try it again if I ever get around to healing my gut. Primal will help with that.

    Do you drink coffee or tea: Herbal tea mostly, some black tea with organic oat milk & some local raw honey (will try to cut them out) & once in a blue moon (once or twice a year) I might have a decaf latte in a cafe.... Does doing a raw organic coffee enema flush count?

    Motivator for switching to Primal: Weight loss, cure eczema, energy, strength, to go against the grain (in more ways then one)

    Favorite exercise: At this stage Pilates. Recovering from a knee operation.

    Favorite Primal food: Pretty much all meat, I was vego for 7 years!

    Best part about being Primal: Not as hungry

    Worst part about being Primal: Am I allowed to say "pizza" on this forum?

    Hello All, my Jeff and I am an industrialized food junkie. I'm not overweight so I feel like I can indulge in whatever I like. My gut usually says different by way of bloat and upset.

    Your location: Columbus, OH

    Age (If you want): 43

    How Primal are you: Somewhat. My challenge is a household with 3 other people not willing to go Primal. I don't have a problem cutting out bread and grains ( Chipotle rice my be a problem... I love it! ) My struggle is all the junk food my wife and mother in-law keep around the house.

    Do you consume dairy: I eat cheese regular basis and I eat yogurt after a strenuous workout. I will most likely indulge in some icecream from time to time.

    Do you drink coffee or tea: I am coffee drinker. down to about 2 cups a day.

    Motivator for switching to Primal: Better gut health, I hope. More energy would be nice. I am tired of feelling like I am going to fall asleep on my drive home from work. Then barely being able to hold my eyes open as I read to my daughter.

    Favorite exercise: Muay Thai / kickboxing

    Favorite Primal food: Fillet Mignon maybe but I love all food. What's for dinner tonight. : )

    Best part about being Primal: I don't know yet only on day four. So far the sunday morning walk in the Metro Park with my wife and daughter.

    Worst part about being Primal: Pizza and Chipotle's cilantro, lime rice. Beer but I keep that to minimum these days anyway.
