    How Primal are you: Just started out, 2 weeks ago, feeling better and better
    I have to get 95% primal, it's a worthy and healthy lifestyle!

    Do you consume dairy: Yes, i have to - milk is needed for my protein intake, trying to find grass-fed one / usually buying raw and boiling it pre-drinking it ; also usually eating cottage cheese and parmessan / mozzarella once a month

    Do you drink coffee or tea: Yes, both, a lot

    Motivator for switching to Primal: Health is wealth + getting the ripped & lean look (too young to be fat and slow), started out martial arts training, where physique plays a great deal of importance ; the self-motiving aspect, better self-esteem, better overall feel, better everything

    Favorite exercise: Weight-lifting related / Bench-Press / Inverse Crunches / Prone Bridge / Sprints / Jumping / Martial Arts / many more

    Favorite Primal food: Turkey breast / Tuna / Salmon / Eggs

    Best part about being Primal: The food choice, the need to envolve both mentally and physically and remain fit

    Worst part about being Primal: Lack of grain is hard to acknowledge and understand at the beginning, yet....the greatest motivator is the TARGET of this lifestyle which is - overall health & joy, therefore there's really not a "worst part"
    I used to miss sodas like Coca-Cola, but never more!

    Hello!
    The questions:
    Location: Austin, Texas

    Age: 47

    How Primal Are You: Not at all, about to give it a shot.

    Do You Consume Dairy: Yep

    Coffee or Tea: Both

    Motivation: Have lurked on this site for a while researching. My husband's stomach problems have gotten worse, so as I'm the cook I'm having having him try the 21 day plan to see if it helps. It's only fair if I do it with him.

    Favorite exercise: Me, Krav Maga. Him, mountain bikes.

    Favorite primal food: Don't know yet.

    How Primal are you: Pretty dang primal, I'd say 90-95%

    Do you consume dairy: I'll have a serving of full fat cheese maybe once per week.

    Do you drink coffee or tea: Yes, both

    Motivator for switching to Primal: Persistent belly fat and weight yo-yoing despite years of regular exercise. I couldn't stick with my "diets" because I treated sweets and processed junk as a reward. So when I gave them up to diet, I felt like I was majorly depriving myself. Plus I drank a couple beers every night.

    Favorite exercise: Zumba (I'm an instructor). I know many here will say no cardio, but I consider Zumba my play as well as exercise. It is an interval workout, so some songs are low intensity (similar to fast walking) and some are very high (like sprinting). At least that's how I see it. Feel free to put me in my place! I love it, so it's great for relieving stress and there is a huge community aspect. All very Primal things. I def. need to add weight training. I do most of my body weight exercises in Pilates class (planks, push-ups, side planks).

    Favorite Primal food: Bacon =)

    Best part about being Primal: Peace of mind knowing I am not feeding my body poison every day.

    Worst part about being Primal: Annoying naysayers.
