    How Primal are you: Just beginning!
    Do you consume dairy: Not sure yet - tried some cheese in an omelet last weekend. I'm converting after 30+ years of veganism.
    Do you drink coffee or tea: Love peppermint tea!
    Motivator for switching to Primal: I've always been taught that meat is evil. Well, after B-12 shots and weeks of iron infusions following a near collapse, I'm rethinking what I've always believed.
    Favorite exercise: Walking
    Favorite Primal food: Well, veggies right now. I tried some tuna and it was pretty good. We'll see.
    Best part about being Primal: Not having to defend veganism anymore!
    Worst part about being Primal: I am really grossed out by meat (haven't really eaten any since I was little), so that will take some doing - may never be able to dive into a steak, but I am making small steps.

    Best part about being Primal: Eating fats

    Worst part about being Primal: not having great bread w my red wine.

    Welcome JY

    Lucky you in France with abundant quality foods -- butcher, cheeses... but also the temptations: pastries and bread!
    Upon reading your post I realized I never really get cravings either -- when I get hungry I just want REAL food!

    Good luck on your journey.

    New (ish) to the Primal lifestyle

    My 'unhealthy' relationship with food goes back to my teens which is a very long story on it's own. I've only been Primal for 5 weeks but changed my lifestyle about 6 years ago and cut out pretty much all refined carbs & grains. Over the course of a few years I lost about 45 pounds but then just stopped losing. So I reduced my calories, drastically, and lost another 37 or so pounds, that was up until August last year when I got remarried. All this time I was exercising but I have arthritis in most of my joints so exercise sometimes is very challenging. I heard about the Paleo lifestyle a few months ago but was nervous about trying it due to having tried Atkins before but I am convinced this is the best way to go and I'm determined to live my life this way. Also, once I went beyond the horrible carb flu, I have noticed a decrease in my joint pain, and the hot flushes and night sweats that were making my life a misery have almost disappeared - that alone is a triumph in my opinion!

    How Primal are you: 95% and hopefully on my way to 100%

    Do you consume dairy: Only butter

    Motivator for switching to Primal: Firstly to take care of health issues, secondly to lose weight

    Favorite exercise: Swimming & weights

    Favorite Primal food: Veal steaks

    Best part about being Primal: Not feeling constantly starved!

    Worst part about being Primal: Trying to explain it to friends and family - especially the increased fat intake
