    Hi all! Just joined today.

    Your location: New Jersey

    Age (If you want): 26

    How Primal are you: Complete newbie

    Do you consume dairy: Yes

    Do you drink coffee or tea: Yes to both

    Motivator for switching to Primal: I'm a research girl; I heard about this from a client and a friend, and starting looking into this. After reading almost every post on MDA and research on the side, it made complete sense for me. I have PCOS, and insulin plays a big part in weight maintenance and weight loss. Having struggled with my weight my whole life, I've been searching for a plan that's logical for a different lifestyle.

    Favorite exercise: When I'm in the gym mood, kickboxing. Otherwise, walking outdoors.

    Favorite Primal food: Breakfast sausage

    Best part about being Primal: Understanding more about the SAD and why it's important to clear your mind about what you've always learned, and the focus on local produce/meat.

    Worst part about being Primal: I am a carb-junkie, so I anticipate giving up bread will be difficult. However, after reading a really cool post about what happens to your body when you carb overload, it makes total sense.

    How Primal are you: 80/20 Primal

    Do you consume dairy: Rarely. If I consume dairy, it's in the form of cheese or greek yogurt.

    Motivator for switching to Primal:
    Severe acid reflux and wanting to lose weight.
    Favorite exercise: KETTLEBELLS!

    Favorite Primal food: I would like to say almond butter, but I'm not quite sure that counts! I love bacon.

    Best part about being Primal: increased energy and no more acid reflux.

    Worst part about being Primal: having to plan ahead when I go out to dinner or travel because there are generally limited primal foods available.

    Another KS newbie here (hello to Carolyn upthread). I'm new here and new to trying out primal.

    Your location: KS

    Age (If you want): 34

    How Primal are you: Just starting. Eggs for breakfast. . .yay! Chinese last night for dinner. . .boo : ( Figuring out what to do right now. I do have a buck in my freezer & eat lots of game, so that has to offset some of the carbs we were eating, right?

    Do you consume dairy: yes

    Do you drink coffee or tea: green tea, no coffee

    Motivator for switching to Primal:
    This is a health thing for my family and me. I don't personally expect weight or body comp changes (already pretty good). I have a theory that my husband is gluten sensitive, and he has high cholesterol (yeah, yeah, it might not be a bad thing). He has gained weight & just doesn't seem as healthy as he could be. It's important for me to take care of his health because his dad weighs over 300 lbs and the whole extended family is unhealthy - his grandparents died in their 60s. I also hope to find some ADHD relief for my little one & acne relief for my teenager. I have some aches & pains in my wrists, knees, fingers, and toes that I hope will go away.

    Favorite exercise: I like them all. Right now doing Insanity videos.

    Favorite Primal food: steak

    Best part about being Primal: red meat

    Worst part about being Primal: I actually don't (didn't?) cook, so losing my 15 minute meal in a bag, frozen pizza, just eat a bowl of Lucky Charms options kind of sucks as a busy working parent.

    Hey all!

    I've been doing the whole primal thing for a few months now and recently discovered this blog a few weeks ago. I'm currently living in Ohio practicing as a registered nurse. I'm trying to live grain-free and dairy-free mostly for health benefits, but it's not easy. My SO loves to eat out a lot and finds cooking at home a hassle. I do drink coffee and tea pretty much every day. My favorite exercise is definitely working with kettlebells. I love to eat veggies and grass-fed steak. The best part about being primal is how good I feel. It seems like I always have energy and don't become tired very easily. The worst part about being primal is that I can't eat out all the time with my boyfriend. I also love to bake, and obviously that kinda goes against the primal way. So that's me in a nutshell. I'm so excited to be a new member of this awesome community!

    Best part about being Primal: i am still waiting.... and

    Worst part about being Primal: at the moment just feeling horrible....

    I used to eat very little meat and more vegetables and fruits and grains, due to Chinese medicine tradition. We Learn the nature of the food and its indications, Like any other different branch of nutrition.
    Saying that I barely for years never managed to shift my weight from 68 kg, being 1.60m,, no matter how much exercise and cardio I did do.
    When I heard about Primal a couple months ago me and my husband read a lot Mark's website and many posts made so much sense even though in my intimate I didn't like the idea of eating meat everyday.

    I am still very new to this new lifestyle change and to be honest I am feeling really bad, indigestion, full, constipation and headaches. Opss and afloring some spots on my face! Great!
    I am eating meat everyday at least once a day, eating when I am hungry, healthy oils, and veggies, and a bit of fruit., exercising as i was told :-) 2 pounds lost in 3 weeks!!!!

    PLEASE I know I suppose to wait the carb flu symptoms but I am finding hard to feel this will be ok for me.

    Gracefully,
    Andrea
