    [QUOTE=Anonymous;280]In other forums I've been a member of in the past - at least for small communities - there's been a 'introduce yourself' thread with some questions that people can answer. I know that there are people reading this forum that are fully primal, partially primal, and are considering it. I thought that I'd put some questions together to cover these things just to get an idea of who's out there.


    The Questions:


    Your location: Charlotte NC

    Age (If you want): 34

    How Primal are you: Paleo,

    Do you consume dairy: No

    Do you drink coffee or tea: No

    Motivator for switching to Primal: Just trying to switch to Paleo right now

    Favorite exercise: Work

    Favorite Primal food: Curry

    Best part about being Primal: Ahhhhh, the non tiredness after a meal.

    Worst part about being Primal: Sorry, I miss some sweet stuff.

    Hi everybody,

    My name is Sarah, 32 years old and living in the Netherlands.
    I came in contact with MDA via a good friend and am reading every inch of the website now.

    I am not able to fill out the regular meet and greet form due to the fact I haven't started yet. I am in the middle of moving houses and have no room yet to focus fully on my new lifestyle to be, but, boy, am I looking forward to this!! The stories I have been reading are highly motivating!
    We are moving to a part of the country where both my boyfriend and I grew up and we are really looking forward to go back and to this new start in our lives.

    Excellent moment make my kitchen Primal proof and start with the new rest of my life

    I will keep you posted on my progress and hope to speak to you soon on the forum.

    Greetings Sarah

    The Questions:


    Your location: Chicago, IL

    Age (If you want): 26

    How Primal are you:

    Do you consume dairy: Some cheese, some butter, some creme. So...yes.

    Do you drink coffee or tea: Far too much coffee, I'm well aware.

    Motivator for switching to Primal: I've been wheat free for a year now and it made a huge impact on my life. I would like to give myself the extra push to go completely grain free and to find more effective/efficient ways to work out.

    Favorite exercise: Yoga.

    Favorite Primal food:

    Best part about being Primal: Meat. Especially since I spent 2 years as a vegetarian prior to going wheat free (wheat free and meat free was miserable).

    Worst part about being Primal: Explaining to people why I don't eat grains without sounding like a jerk.

    I am 62 and live in Oregon. A sleepy urban town called Aloha. I am primal about 99%. I don't get fresh vegetables as often as I like but I use frozen vegies.
    Do I consume dairy: Yes, very small amount in my coffee. I use heavy cream, cheese, cream cheese. I switched to almond milk for my coffee and love it.
    Do I drink coffee or tea: yes, 2 cups in the morning. Sometimes tea for a different flavor.
    Motivator for going primal: My son-in-law started this years ago and kept trying to get me to do it also. At the time I couldn't but my daughter did. She lost about 50 lbs. Now my circumstances have changed and I am committed to the lifestyle. My daughter and my son-in-law both coach me now.
    Favorite exercise: Being able to walk without a walker. When I started the diet 5 weeks ago, I couldn't walk all the way through my house, nor could I step onto my treadmill. Now, I am walking without the walker through the house and I walked on my treadmill for 4 minutes yesterday. I am thrilled.
    Best food: Bacon-I live on the stuff.
    Best part about being primal: That I am losing weight for the 1st time in years ( I had given up on ever losing again). Less medicine. I am already down 20 units in my insulin consumption.
    Don't know of anything negative about primal yet. I don't miss potatoes or grains. I get chocolate. I'm happy.
    I will try to post at least once an month to post my progress. Good eating to all of you!

    How Primal are you: Well I was primal for a little over a week and then had one bad weekend. It's been a couple of weeks now, and I'm prepared to do this for the long term. Beginning today I will strive to be 100% primal!

    Do you consume dairy: Yes. I love dairy.

    Do you drink coffee or tea: Yes, one cup of coffee with cream + sugar every morning.

    Motivator for switching to Primal: Simple, I want to be the healthiest version of me and still eat really delicious foods. And I am tired of craving sugar + getting migraines. I'm too young to feel the way I do...

    Favorite exercise: Do people actually have a favorite exercise? I'm going to need some motivation with this one. Walking around the property + playing with my dog.

    Favorite Primal food: I'm not sure yet. Though I do love meat!

    Best part about being Primal: Again, not sure... but I hear it's pretty awesome.

    Worst part about being Primal: I hope there isn't a "worst part"...

    CalicoGal says Hi

    Your location: Dewitt Michigan

    Age (If you want): 30

    How Primal are you: 80/20

    Do you consume dairy: Right now only Butter.

    Do you drink coffee or tea: Yes. Thinking about switching to herbal tea only as I really miss my cream and sugar.

    Motivator for switching to Primal: A cruise in July and getting pregnant with #2 at a healthy starting point (after cruise)

    Favorite exercise: Not much right now. I do have kettlebells and will hopefully start using them soon and I want to start training for a 5k again.

    Favorite Primal food: Bacon and Eggs

    Best part about being Primal: Being able to eat bacon and eggs and lose weight.

    Worst part about being Primal: Realizing the amount of grains and crud in my diet beforehand. Also my husbands attitude.

    I have been doing this since Jan 4th of 2013. I have lost 21lbs and 12 inches (overall). I don't miss alot of sweets or breads but I do get cravings at night for nuts. I think its the fatty-salty goodness. But I am worried they are contributing to my skin allergy. My skin gets hot, red and very itchy, if I don't take an allergy pill everyday, even then I get Hot red patches on my face mostly. When I went to the Dermatologist, he just said its common and I must have changed something. Then prescribed me Allegra. Grrr. Otherwise I feel good and hope to get more active as the weather warms up. Thanks!
