    Primal Fuel
    I'm in W. Michigan, 57 years old, disabled as a result of an auto accident. I have been toying with the idea of primal eating for half a year, but having trouble giving up my old food addictions. I grew up on a dairy farm and love dairy, although I don't eat as much as I used to (half a gallon of raw milk a day when I lived on the farm!). I am sadly dependent on Maxwell House International Coffee-French Vanilla Cafe. Not primal at all, I know. I have lost so much with age, poor health, and my accident, that I want to do what I can to stay as healthy as possible. I have yet to find a good, sustainable exercise program that works for me with my disabilities. My favorite primal food is probably my landlady's good organic eggs cooked with lots of mushrooms, peppers, onions, garlic and maybe bacon.

    I haven't stuck to the primal way of life enough to discover a best yet. The hardest is definitely the cravings for the foods I'm used to and the junky foods my daughter brings into the house.

    I've finally joined!

    Hi everyone. I'm looking forward to the new year and so far it's going very well. How are you all doing??

    A bit about me: I went primal mid last summer and haven't looked back. It's wonderful. It's life changing. It's freeing. How amazing is it not needing a snack every two hours? Pretty amazing.

    Your location: Pennsylvania

    Age (If you want): 29 going on 30!

    How Primal are you: Very Primal. But I like my cheese.

    Do you consume dairy: Cream in my coffee and a bit of cheese. Cheese is, next to my hubs and beloved Glenn Coco, the love of my food life.

    Do you drink coffee or tea: Both, but I focus on coffee.

    Motivator for switching to Primal: I was sick of being a slave to my blood sugar spikes.

    Favorite exercise: Walking in nature and swimming.

    Favorite Primal food: Seafood.

    Best part about being Primal: Never feeling full but always feeling satisfied

    Worst part about being Primal: Unsure if there is a downside....

    Your location: Chicago

    Age (If you want): 38

    How Primal are you: Probably 90/10 since the day after Thanksgiving

    Do you consume dairy: yes, but only a tiny bit

    Do you drink coffee or tea: yes

    Motivator for switching to Primal: I've been doubting CICO lately, and I've never tried eating outside of SAD, so this sounded interesting.

    Favorite exercise: I have spent a lot of time running and doing half marathons. I haven't run in a few months now...I guess I'm taking a break. I love Bikram yoga, but don't get to do it very often. Right now I take a boxing class a couple of times a week.

    Favorite Primal food: Bacon :-)

    Best part about being Primal: Being able to resist cookies/cakes/candies so much more easily than I have ever been able to before.

    Worst part about being Primal: Not quite sure what to do when friends want to get together with all of our kids to have pizza. Haven't found a suitable option from a pizza place, aside from salad.

    Age (If you want): 46

    How Primal are you: Diet-wise, probably 90%. Lifestyle-wise, maybe 70% right now but I'm working on it (still reading PB and getting with the full program!).

    Do you consume dairy: I eat Greek yogurt a few times a week. Oh, and butter. Lots of butter.

    Do you drink coffee or tea: Both, but only decaf/herbal.

    Motivator for switching to Primal: It just makes sense, seems like a good way to maintain my recent weight loss, and I was already most of the way there as far as my diet goes.

    Favorite exercise: Hiking with my dog (and camera), bodyweight/resistance exercises, Lifting Heavy Things. I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia and CFS 10 years ago and I'm learning that I'm so much stronger and can do so much more than I ever thought I could do physically, which makes me want to keep pushing myself to do more!

    Favorite Primal food: Um, pretty much everything? I love food! Venison, avocados, macadamias and all forms of coconut are probably my favorites.

    Best part about being Primal: Better sleep, better body, better moods, more energy -- it just feels "right" and natural and like it's what my body was meant to do.

    Worst part about being Primal: Lectures and article links and whatnot from well-meaning relatives who hold to CW and the SAD like it's a religion.
