    ~Level 1 primal
    ~Been going at it for nearly 2 weeks. All this cooking and shopping is exhausting! (but interesting)

    Hello Everyone,
    Just joined the Forum.

    I am excited, and I am very green behind the ear with the whole paleo/BP way of life.

    I did try it four days leading up to Thanskgiving, and I droped 4 lbs, just with me trying paleo type meals!!!

    I have read everything I can get my hands on, and I am really fascinated by the the food chart being flipped upside down, and this entire new way of eating, living and thinking when it comes to clearn healthy eating.

    I am from Greensboro, NC

    I have two children

    A Hubby and I Golden Retriever.

    Look forward to all the great info I will learn here!!!

    Age (If you want): 28

    How Primal are you: 100% in sporadic multi-day stints, closer to 70% most of the time (gotta slay the sugar dragon)

    Do you consume dairy: occasionally

    Do you drink coffee or tea: both, getting into black coffee

    Motivator for switching to Primal: I've always been heavier, but considered myself healthy...until the day I took an ambulance ride from my office for what turned out to be GERD/acid reflux. Googled for solutions and found Primal Blueprint. As soon as I quit grains I stopped having that problem (it returns when I make the decision to indulge). I've gotten more serious lately, and am finally maintaining ~10 lb. weight loss (& working for much more).

    Favorite exercise: dancing, but I'm getting into crossfit

    Favorite Primal food: coconut milk

    Best part about being Primal: feeling really healthy and "right"

    Worst part about being Primal: struggling with compliance

    How Primal are you:
    This is my second day. I still need to learn so much!

    Do you consume dairy:
    There will be a little organic goat gouda and full fat yogurt occasionally, perhaps even whipped cream with cinnamom as a treat, and very occasionally a little butter.

    Do you drink coffee or tea:
    Yes, black coffee. I wish I drank more tea

    Motivator for switching to Primal:
    Where to start? I know that my immune system has gaps, no big deals, a little eczema here a stuffed sinus there. I also know that low-level inflammation causes civilisation's diseases. Plus there are a few stubborn kilos I wish to loose. On the other hand I was wary of committing to an extreme (as compared to conventional wisdom) way of eating. Then I watched this and almost cried when he explained how an organism constantly flooded with glucose starves its cells while growing fatter and fatter.

    Favorite exercise:
    Dancing, Pilates, but I'll start weight training again as soon as my muscles have recovered from a couple of too enthusiastic plank excercises. I'll have to work on the low level aerobic stuff. Living in the city isn't the perfect inspiration for walks.

    Favorite Primal food:
    Almonds in any shape or form? North sea shrimps with scrambled eggs? This is the kind of question I could never answer properly. I love food and I have been eating 95% organic for years and years now.

    Best part about being Primal:
    I don't know yet. I hope for more energy now and an active and independent old age to come. But I know the best part of being primal as opposed to more rigid forms of paleo that might be out there: More flexibility. I really like the food pyramid and the advice to rather compromise your primal status than offend a host/hostess who has slaved over a special meal.

    Worst part about being Primal:
    Again, I don't know, but I suspect it will be the time factor. No ready meals to buy. Always having to plan ahead. I hope IF will help with this, but as of now I can just about manage 12 hours before breaking my fast.

    The Questions:


    Your location: Miami, FL

    Age (If you want): 24

    How Primal are you: Well I try to stick to a fully raw diet, consisting of high quality animal foods. I was under the impression this was a paleo forum so I thought I'd subscribe.

    Do you consume dairy: on occasion, raw dairy.

    Do you drink coffee or tea:

    Motivator for switching to Primal: Primal is an all animal foods diet right? With no plant foods? Or are you referring to Aajonous Vonderplanitz' all raw diet?

    Favorite exercise: basketball

    Favorite Primal food: Raw grass fed beef brains, or maybe raw wild caught king salmon

    Best part about being Primal:

    Worst part about being Primal:

    I'm a member over at the raw paleo diet forum, but I get kind of bored since there's not to many posts there. So I decided to come here.

    I'm a raw paleo dieter, not necessarily primal.

    I aim to eat 100% raw foods. Mainly grass fed beef, lamb, buffalo organs and muscle meats. Wild-caught fatty fish. Fruits, veggies, and minimal nuts. I aim to eat everything raw, including the animal foods.

    I've noticed some health improvements since beginning my raw journey.

    A little background about myself.

    I'm schizophrenic, and my healing journey began when I started researching natural remedies because pharma just didn't have the answers I was looking for.

    I started by reading the book "Prescription for Nutritional Healing." It had some decent suggestions. So I added flax seed oil, fish oil, B complex, and a few other general health supps.

    Still though, I didn't notice the results I wanted.

    I eventually discovered megavitamin niacin therapy, as prescribed by Dr. Abram Hoffer. I read his book "Healing Schizophrenia: Complementary Vitamin & Drug Treatments."

    Immediately after reading I started taking 1,000 mg niacin, plus 50 mg b complex, and 1,000 mg vitamin c with each meal.

    After a couple months on this regiment I noticed tremendous improvements in my over all energy, my negative symptoms also slowly faded and became barely noticeable.

    I began tapering my medications. I went from 1,500 to 500 mg of one, then off it completely. I was on 120 of another one, and tapered to 40 mg but didn't fully stop it.

    Later I heard about the specific carbohydrate diet, so I started that.

    Later after that I heard about raw paleo, which is essentially a raw meat diet for humans. I decided to only eat SCD legal carbs, coupled with high quality raw animal foods.

    So that's my story of how I came to paleo/raw paleo.

    Greetings - I began experimenting with the Primal lifestyle in August '12 and was committed by September 10th. So far I've lost 30lbs, reduced colesterol by 45 pts and feel great. I stopped my normal exercise routine at the same time in September. Instead of light running and weight machines, I began walking the dogs consistently and taking short walks during lunch at work. Interesting that I made more progress in ten weeks doing less than the previous five years. Can't wait to see what happens when I begin running/light lifting again in December.

    Your location: Cincinnati, OH

    Age (If you want): 43

    How Primal are you: 85/15

    Do you consume dairy: Yes, quality cheeses and organic butter.

    Do you drink coffee or tea: Yes, 12 oz daily.

    Motivator for switching to Primal: weight loss and future health.

    Favorite exercise: Running; 5k - 10k.

    Favorite Primal food: Avocados

    Best part about being Primal: Feeling good

    Worst part about being Primal: Peer presure to drink beer (poker night and a nice Merlot...)

    I've been looking at Paleo/Primal rebalancing for the last two months. Have attended two meetups with the Atlanta Paleo/Primal Group and would say I'm still in the investigation process, while I'm cleaning up my menus (no processed foods, no white anything, moving toward gluten free, and so on). I do drink coffee and tea daily, use milk for both, and am a big fan of cheese. I'm looking at Paleo/Primal as a way to increase my wellness. My favorite exercise is Qigong. Having challenges with the food aspects of this lifestyle. I had complex surgery on my small intestines, gallbladder, etc. in 2007. I, therefore, have malabsorption issues and am seeing what works with the supplementation requirements I have.

    I have long-time experience in energy work and have been a Reiki Master over 25 years, very much believe in healing alternatives and being at choice. I currently right for Raw honey from Organic Mountains | 100% Pure Raw Georgia Mountain Honey and educate our readers about their choices. I really enjoy sharing in this way.

    G’day folks.
    I am half way through the Paleo 30 day challenge that I found on the internet. So far all is going great, I feel better, sleep better and all over just feel like there has been a change to my body. Have lost a bit of weight and think this is great. More to go. I love the 30 day challenge and even though it will be put slightly on hold during Christmas I will take it up again after. The more I read and research this topic the more I like what I am finding out and the more I will incorporate into my life.
