    Primal Fuel
    Your location: suburbs of Boston, MA

    Age (If you want): 38 (I think, I keep "forgetting")

    How Primal are you: 100% as of four days ago

    Do you consume dairy: no

    Do you drink coffee or tea: yes, mostly decaf tea but coffee once in a while

    Motivator for switching to Primal: I have been suffering from almost constant illness since the birth of my child five years ago. Nothing serious, but I always have a cold, flu, etc. Doctors can't find anything wrong with me except allergies and chronic sinusitis. Many have claimed that it is "all in my head," because I have been dealing with grief, stress and depression. So I went to a therapist last year and got on anti-depressants. It worked well and I am happy, not depressed, but still sick! Oh, and the medication caused me to gain weight. So this is my last ditch effort to feel better and to lose weight. I keep kosher and have reactive hypoglycemia, so the paleo lifestyle is a bit of a challenge for me, but I am committed. I heard about paleo from my boss and just read the "whole 30." Day 4 and so far so good.

    Favorite exercise: spinning. I have terrible knees and feet, so this is the best exercise for me.

    Favorite Primal food: Don't know yet! Although I was pretty excited when I made my own mayo from scratch last night for the first time and it came out perfectly.

    Best part about being Primal: Eating yummy foods and not having to count calories.

    Worst part about being Primal: Having to cook ALL my meals, without the convenience of prepared foods. I work part time and am the primary caregiver for my daughter, PLUS I volunteer and sing in two choirs, so my time is at a premium. I've tried cooking massive amounts of food at once and am shocked at how fast I eat it all, plus my husband and daughter eat it as well. Any suggestions about this issue would be greatly appreciated!

    Hello everyone!

    Your location: The South East of UK

    Age (If you want): 30

    How Primal are you: Partially. I keep trying to go 100%, but slip up occasionally. Grains and processed foods are out though. Bread, in particular, is a big no-no, simply due to the reaction I have to it.

    Do you consume dairy: Occasionally, but recently been trying whole 30 which doesn't allow it.

    Do you drink coffee or tea: Tea. I can't stand coffee.

    Motivator for switching to Primal: I'd gained a lot of weight and was generally very unhealthy. Someone pointed me in the direction of this site and the more I read, the more sense it made, so I since got the book too and changed my eating habits.

    Favorite exercise: 30 day Shred workout (20 mins HIT)

    Favorite Primal food: Chicken and/or cashew nuts

    Best part about being Primal: Being healthier, and hormones levelled out.

    Worst part about being Primal: Putting up with all the 'oh that can't be healthy, you NEED carbs like pasta' comments.
