    How Primal are you: average 80%. 98% most of the time with some non-organic/grass fed meat (free range at least) but plan to start ordering online soon. I also eat some non-primal at social gatherings once or twice a month and when travelling.

    Do you consume dairy: No. I'm allergic so Primal minus dairy is great for me.

    Do you drink coffee or tea: not usually, chamomile or mint occasionally

    Motivator for switching to Primal: Husband's PT challenged him to "get ripped" and suggested paleo with a few non-paleo additions (oats on workout days) to reduce his body fat. He had too many q's about the eating plan that his PT couldn't answer so I read everything I could find and got hooked immediately. I have lots of fat to lose, have hated every diet and exercise plan I've ever tried (many!) and saw immediately that I could do this and even perhaps enjoy it!

    Favorite exercise: Barefoot sprints on grass. If anyone had told me I would enjoy running in my 40's (or 30's or 20's) I would have laughed my head off at the remote likelihood of that ever happening. I am actually laughing now, but with glee!

    Favorite Primal food: Egg-banana pancakes, but my husband has come up with many delicious ways to cook chicken thigh fillets too.

    Best part about being Primal: Eating as much as I want and not getting fatter! Not being hungry all the time. Having energy. Wanting to exercise! (Sorry, I am still having trouble getting my head around this wanting to exercise thing... I can't quite believe it.) A big one is the lack of cravings for everything I shouldn't eat, never had that before.

    Worst part about being Primal: Convincing myself it's okay to eat pizza at that one party where that's all there was on offer...

    How Primal are you:

    Mostly primal, but Iím also very proud of my polish traditions so I eat some traditional food every now and then (think pierogies)

    Do you consume dairy: Yes, but only fermented dairy.

    Do you drink coffee or tea: rarely

    Motivator for switching to Primal:

    I donít remember how, but I just came across this site and started reading some articles. After reading a lot on this site and from other sites too, and judging it from my anatomy and medical classes, the primal blueprint makes so much more sense biologically than conventional wisdom. The only reason I could think of for not switching was because I was afraid of change and that is no excuse.

    Favorite exercise:

    I love doing pull ups. I donít know of a better word for it, but I just feel powerful when I pull myself up higher than normal.

    Favorite Primal food:

    A nice grass-fed steak right next to fried mushrooms still dripping in butter. Either that or bacon.


    Best part about being Primal:

    A night and day difference with my energy levels, and being able to have such great tasting food all the time.


    Worst part about being Primal:

    I still live with my parents and they donít approve of how I eat...

    How Primal are you:

    Mostly primal, occasional straying towards gluten free baked snack items and potatoes fries.

    Do you consume dairy: Yes

    Do you drink coffee or tea: No

    Motivator for switching to Primal:

    Drifted towards primal, from low GI. Read loads books about the evils of sugar/ wheat, processed low fat snack items and it all made sense once I read primal blueprint !

    I also now know I'm slightly intolerant to wheat as I get bad stomach aches if I eat a roll or sweet cake. The very small amounts in gravy etc don't bother me.

    Favorite exercise:

    I love going to kettlercise classes - kettle bell work outs

    Favorite Primal food:

    A nice steak and large mixed salad or veggies in butter


    Best part about being Primal:

    I don't feel so "sleepy" and don't start dropping off to sleep during the day.


    Worst part about being Primal:

    Actually not much.. But My "head" hunger for non paleo items doesn't help!

    Hi, to answer those questions
    - 21
    - I've basically been on and off primal for about 6 years now, I would say I've been about 70/30 the last 6 months.
    - Yes, but not much. hard cheese and full fat cream are about my only vices in that regard.
    - Yes, both.
    - Good health (and all its connotations)
    - Sprinting and lifting (dead lifts esp.)
    - BBQ steak and onion; bacon and eggs (classic.) and avocadoes (for any occasion!)
    - The way it makes you feel - so much energy, mental clarity, control, fitness etc.
    - It's difficult to maintain when there is so much bull***t propaganda and brain washing out there, especially when you're trying at it without the support of those around you.
