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:

    Age (if you want):39

    how primal are you: Just starting

    do you consume dairy: I currently use some dairy. I eat cottage cheese and occasionally 1% milk.

    Do you drink coffee or tea: Yes to both

    motivator for switching to primal: I've been working out since i was 14 and even though i'm in good shape i can't get rid of some body fat around the mid section. Other people at my crossfit gym swear by the paleo diet and after seeing some before and after pictures i was convinced to do some research on my own. I have inflammation in my joints and minor arthritis in my knees from playing sports since i was a kid. I have also noticed bloating recently after eating a heavy carb meal or drinking a few beers.

    Favorite exercise: Crossfit in general

    favorite primal food: Tbd

    best part about being primal: Tbd

    worst part about being primal:

    How Primal are you: Trying to be as much as possible, no grains, no sugars, processed foods, legumes and now trying to cut out dairy as I always used milk after training to recover.

    Do you consume dairy: I switched from homogenised milk to organic, non-homogenised cow milk from Jersey cows for A2 casein. A couple of weeks ago, changed to goats milk (with cocoa powder to hide the taste) and currently, trying without milk to see how it feels.

    Do you drink coffee or tea: 2 cups a week max.

    Motivator for switching to Primal: Spent years of feeling lazy and lethargic as well as having thought about nutrition for some years but only just starting to research it.

    Favorite exercise: Rugby sevens or skiing.

    Favorite Primal food: All of it but in particular, plantain wrapped in Bacon or texas (beanless) chilli with coconut creamed leeks.

    Best part about being Primal: Sustained energy levels, lower body fat, generally feeling much more healthy and almost enlightened to the false truths of nutrition.

    Worst part about being Primal: The transition period, cutting out grains and dairy.

    Christiansburg, Virginia
    I'm located in Christiansburg, Virginia
    I'm 43 years old
    I'm extremely primal due to food allergies that are accompanied by hypothyroidism.
    One of my allergies is dairy, so no, I'm not consuming that right now.
    I am gluten intolerant
    Grain intolerant
    I also have hypoglycemia due to the hypothyroid so I avoid fruits and starchy tubers all together and I eat the lowest glycemic of the vegetables.
    I don't eat vegetables of the nightshade variety
    I don't drink coffee, my thyroid wouldn't allow me. I drink mostly flat water. Occasionally I will have herbal tea and sparkling water.
    The only nut I eat is the macadamia.
    I'm too tired to exercise most days.
    I LOVE fat.
    After reading previous posts, realized I haven't been sick either since I started eating this way.
    There isn't a worst part. I don't have attachments to foods like normal people do. I'm ok with eating this way.

    The Questions:

    Your location: Ontario, Canada

    Age (If you want): 29

    How Primal are you: I eat as much within the primal food options as I want. As I am new to this lifestyle I can't commit to a percentage just now.

    Do you consume dairy: minimal dairy - butter, the occasional greek yogurt

    Do you drink coffee or tea: Tea

    Motivator for switching to Primal: My sister in law! Who in just over a year has lost a significant amount of body fat, balanced her moods and has virtually eliminated her anxiety. She encouraged me to try it, and after reading/researching about this lifestyle, it just made sense.

    Favorite exercise: Walking / kettle bell work outs / playing with my nephews

    Favorite Primal food: Meat, meat, meat! I have been on many calorie restrictive diets in the past, so I'm so glad that protein is becoming a staple in my eating habits.

    Best part about being Primal: No longer a slave to calorie counting, measuring and weighing food.

    Worst part about being Primal: Telling people about my lifestyle change and having them lecture me about how wrong I am...whoa boy do they have a lot to learn. Aside from that, nothing so far
