    Not primal yet....just discovered this yesterday.

    Yes I do consume dairy moslty because I have been duped into believing it is good for you.

    I drink one coffee every morning.

    Was inspired to check out the Primal lifestyle by an eye doctor who lives by it.

    How Primal are you: I would say very, occasionally have a slip, but is pretty rare.

    Do you consume dairy: Yes, do not appear to have any lactose issues, but try to limit as much as possible

    Do you drink coffee or tea: Tea sweetened with Stevia

    Motivator for switching to Primal: I'm a physician with strong emphasis on preventive medicine, have always been interested in diet and exercise. Was searching for the best way to maintain my health and continue to be active. The benefit is the numbers of patients with diabetes, pre-diabetes and hyperlipidemia who have gotten off their meds with this lifestyle.

    Favorite exercise: Resistance training, bench press in particular.

    Favorite Primal food: Steak

    Best part about being Primal: I love the sense of community and the positive energy that comes from spreading the message and seeing the results as others embrace the Paleo/Primal way!

    Worst part about being Primal: I do miss french fries with ketchup (I make my own primal ketchup, but not quite the same).

    How Primal are you: 90+% I started June 1, 2012 and I am still learning how to eat.

    Do you consume dairy: No, that was my cheat-Feta with eggs but stopped.

    Do you drink coffee or tea: Black Coffee and just started White Tea

    Motivator for switching to Primal: I wasn't losing weight with my cycling because I thought I could eat anything. I ate pasta all the time. After learning about Paleo/Primal, weight loss became a secondary reason. I have family members in their 90's and one is 101. With my genes, I have a goal to live to 125. People think I'm goofy.

    Favorite exercise: Cycling

    Favorite Primal food:Avocado

    Best part about being Primal: The health benefits, weight loss-people seeing this and asking me about the diet. If I can help one person better their life that would best part.

    Worst part about being Primal: Being a little to enthusiastic about the Paleo/Primal. I have to check myself around friends.

    Best part about being Primal:So far it is the satisfaction and ability to escape from the SAD diet the VA keeps trying to push on me.

    How Primal are you: Not much, just got the cookbook - haven't eaten bread or anything with oats in it for a couple of weeks now, and so far so good.

    Do you consume dairy: yes

    Do you drink coffee or tea: yes, loads

    Motivator for switching to Primal: I have poor cholesterol levels so I am interested in diets that might help, also would like to avoid weight gain

    Favorite exercise: Hill walking, but also like cycling

    Favorite Primal food: Not sure, tried making the brownies in the cookbook using ground almond (can't get walnut meal/flour in UK) and they came out really nice. Amazed that you can make nice cakes etc without flour

    Best part about being Primal: Not sure yet

    Worst part about being Primal: When my high LDL/low HDL was diagnosed a few years ago I didn't like the statin they gave me so I stopped eating meat & started eating fish - that helped, so I am not v keen on the idea of going back to eating meat (don't miss it), but meat seems to feature heavily in Primal. Also, seems hard to find some of the things in the Primal Cookbook here in the UK.

    San Diego, Ca,

    old enough to know better

    I stay away from packaged, non GMO foods, like sprouted, living foods
    I make my own raw jerky- love that!

    I do consume dairy: Raw cheese, keifer and fermented

    I love my organic coffee, make tea from home grown herbs (tulsi, dandelion, peppermint, stevia, etc)

    I don't know what "Primal" means yet- but I do forage for my food and grow my own??
    I'm not sure I've switched to being completely Primal- but will be open to more info regarding it.

    Training and racing my horses (yes, you do sweat and it primarily works the core) but I need to get my ass out of the saddle
    and that's why I'm here- for motivation!!

    I love to run trails- but haven't done so in a long time.

    Primal food? I love organic, grass fed, free range beef- but don't eat it often, Love wild caught Salmon
    Still need to research what "Primal" is- I could survive off the land from what i know about it and the
    food it provides- but I have a feeling its bigger than that.
