Your location: Chicago, IL
Age (If you want): 33
How Primal are you: 100%, decided this was the path I wanted to take, and cleaned out the house and stocked it with all good stuff. No processed foods, no Dairy, no grains. Nothing!
Do you consume dairy: Not anymore
Do you drink coffee or tea: There is a limit to how far I can go. I must have my coffee and Tea!
Motivator for switching to Primal: In the course of 6 months I was promoted, quit smoking, and had a friend tell me I looked like I was gaining weight. The promotion means almost no physical labor anymore. after 12 years of being a construction worker to now having 23 years left of being a supervisor, I had to make a change in my life. I don't want to be 500lbs and die a week after retiring (if I would have made it that far). Quitting smoking added to the weight gain, and being called out on it flipped a switch in my head. I have to change. I have to lose this weight, build my strength and start living life to the fullest!
Favorite exercise: I really enjoy walking and bike riding. I shoot Compeititon pistol, and Multigun, which involve a lot of running ad shooting. I'm hoping to improve my skills as part of this lifestyle change.
Favorite Primal food:Meat! I'm not picky, I like food. Bacon is a large plus, and so are brussel sprouts.
Best part about being Primal:knowing that I can still eat, and still be healthy. Knowing that the further along I get, the better I will feel.
Worst part about being Primal: Giving up real Pizza there is just no grain free, dairy free way to reproduce it.
