    How Primal are you: Probably about 80% at the moment, it gets better as I get more organized and plan my shopping and meals better.

    Do you consume dairy: butter, cream and very small amount of cheese

    Do you drink coffee or tea: mainly tea, and im introducing more herbal varieties.

    Motivator for switching to Primal: First thought: Long long story! but in a nutshell im overweight and my energy levels are terrible. Family history of diabetes and a sugar addiction to rival most. I had been dipping in and out of primal for a while, I knew this was the way to go but finally taken the big plunge and feel amazingly better after just three weeks.

    Favorite exercise: going tramping in the bush.

    Favorite Primal food: steak.

    Best part about being Primal:no stupid low fat meals and feeling full but not sluggish.

    Worst part about being Primal: trying to eat on the go if ive forgotten to pack something. Does every food outlet involve wheat?! pretty much

    Hi All
    Andrew from Cape Town, South Africa here. I'm a 39 year old, entrepreneur and keen to look like Mark asap!
    Always been reasonably healthy, and recently decided to go primal.
    I am at this stage going to have dairy and herbal tea's and coffee, but no refined foods, very limited carbs and follow paleo (other than these above) as closely as possible.
    Will also exercise and play as much as possible!
    Look forward to chatting to as many of you as possible!
    Andrew

    Hello everyone
    New member from England here I have been following the Primal way for 6 weeks tomorrow and I am one of those folk who is absolutely gobsmacked as to how fantastic primal eating and the primal lifestyle is gernerally. I was told that I was hypothyroid over 4 years ago, put oodles of weight on seriously quickly (after a lifetime of being a model-like (my dad's opinion!) and willowy 5'11 and a half inches and 10 stone 4 most of my adult life (144 lbs for all you US peeps).
    Well after never having a problem with my weight I launched into a low-fat, high-carb diet (according to U.S./U.K. 'law') and spent the next 4 years or so struggling with my weight and fitness, a victim of portion control, low-fat thinking and definitely chronic cardio. This is quite some feat if you have a thyroid problem, but that's another story . . . so let's cut that story short right now and I'll address the 'questions' . . .

    Your location:
    Worcestershire, England

    Age (If you want):

    54 (nearly 55 - eeeeeeeeeeeeeek!) Hot though!!!

    How Primal are you:

    Very! Well, as much as I possibly can be. I would think honestly about 85-90%.

    Do you consume dairy: Yes, Greek yog occasionally and raw, unpasteurised cheese. Oh and cream, very occasionally. And vintage Cheddar, you know, sometimes, when the occasion arises!

    Do you drink coffee or tea: One cup of normal British tea with a dollop of semi-skimmed milk (half and half??) and then the occasional green tea during the day and evening. Coffee rarely but not banished.

    Motivator for switching to Primal:

    I guess because, as a hypothyroid person, nothing else worked and I was really a bit desperate.

    Favorite exercise:

    Walking and hiking - 30 to 40 miles every week with my personal trainer (a huge German Shepherd dog); Pilates, which I've done for 10 years and Yoga, which I do intermittently, but love.

    Favorite Primal food:
    Butter! After eating low-fat for years and years, it is unbelievable to be able to eat butter again. Ditto avocados :-)

    Best part about being Primal: Definitely two things - undeniably the weight loss after several years of not being able to lose anything, having lost 12 lbs in less than 6 weeks feels amazing and secondly, as a person who has spent the last few years falling asleep every afternoon and hardly having the energy to get out of bed each moring - how I feel is incredible!!! So full of energy and permanently smiley!

    Worst part about being Primal: Other people's incredulity and scathing comments! Not that I care to be honest, but it does do my head in sometimes!
