Your location: Kent, UK
Age (If you want): 32
How Primal are you: around 90% depending on your definition, I'm in charge of the food in our house so the times I stray are either eating out/as a guest. (although I did decide to eat a hot cross bun at Easter, and no, I didn't regret it)
Do you consume dairy: Yes, mostly cheese, butter and cream. Never been able to stomach drinking milk though.
Do you drink coffee or tea: Yes, but mostly black (except for a treasured cappuccino now and then)
Motivator for switching to Primal: Combination of things, wanting to be a healthy mum (when the time comes), getting married but mostly anger at being fed such a lot of misinformation about health, I've finally lost feeling of guilt at being fat (I've also lost the fat, but the guilt went first!).
Favourite exercise: Walking or swimming when I get the chance. Walking/hunting rabbits with the dogs was my favourite but the dogs are gone now and we're not in a position to have dogs at the moment.
Favorite Primal food: So hard to choose just one! Roast beef, vegetable and gravy is awesome, steak, beef carpaccio, a really good salad, confit duck and sauerkraut, and more....
Best part about being Primal: Losing the shame of obesity (and not being obese), looking great, feeling awesome. More energy, being SO happy, looking forward to a healthy future, feeling like I've been given the magic keys to a great life
Worst part about being Primal: Having to negotiate eating outside our home (thank you 80/20 principle), dealing with people's expectations and feeling like the pickiest eater! Being at odds with CW isn't always easy.
We ought to end these on a positive though so I'm going to say that we bought an extra freezer for meat :-) My mum keeps sheep and I've requested a whole hogget (older than lamb, younger than mutton and entirely delicious) this year - it'll be at cost price because she's my mum. I've also ordered a beef box from our community farm - 40lbs (give or take) of locally grass reared, traditional breed (British White) beef! Whoot!
Our community farm is amazing, managing a wildlife reserve through traditional grazing methods, offering education and volunteering programmes to kids and adults locally, preserving traditional British beef breeds and providing the finest locally managed beef for sale. If anyone can top this for a programme I'll take my hat off to them!
