    Intro

    Your location: Victoria, BC

    Age (If you want): 37

    How Primal are you: getting there

    Do you consume dairy: yes (butter and occasional yogurt, cheese and a splash of milk here and there)

    Do you drink coffee or tea: both, occasionally

    Motivator for switching to Primal: whole blueprint makes sense (diet with the exercise)

    Favorite exercise: due to bad posture and some bad decisions my body is out of whack. my knees aren't tracking and I have muscle weakness and imbalance all over my body. i am currently working with a physiotherapist to sort out the knees thing and building my core, then eventually will strengthening the upper body (currently my right shoulder is out - can't lift arm above shoulder). i ordered Gokhale's book and hoping that will help a lot. so i can only walk right now, and do my activation exercises to get inactive muscles working. it's a slow process. dreaming of a day when I can do a grok squat, and a pull up, even if it is assisted!

    Favorite Primal food: grassfed beef burger

    Best part about being Primal: feels cool to eat meat and salad/veges! i feel like a cavewoman! also, less carb cravings and binges.

    Worst part about being Primal: i am still new and transitioning. it is hard to cook non primal for the family and primal for me. (they are not on board! yet!) also, am still trying to find 'sweet spot' where i know what to eat to not be hungry. because when I tried going purely primal i was hungry every 2 hours. it appears i need different ratios of protein, carb, fat for different meals to not feel hungry between meals. i used to do Zone, but after having kids not following it as well. maybe because it was not working anymore. so i am using the Zone as a baseline, to see what my body needs at different mealtimes. for the most part (lunch and dinner), for the Zone savvy, it appears that I need a CPF ratio of 20 30 50.

    Hello Grokette_wannabe! I'm pretty new, too. I complete my 2nd week today. So scale appt. tomorrow morning 6 am sharp
    Anyway - not sure if this will help you or not, but my first week I made sure to concentrate on having more protein at each meal then I ever did before & added to the veggies to that. The high protein kept me from starving between meals after the 1st couple days (1st days I allowed a handful of nuts between meals if I felt hungry). I found that it was easy in the second week to eat smaller meals and not needing to snack as much. I also found I sometimes wanted to skip meals. I never had the carb-flu, either. (probably just lucky on that point). Anyway - best of luck on your continued Primal journey.

    Your location: Southern New Jersey, US

    Age (If you want): 36

    How Primal are you: 100%

    Do you consume dairy: Yes... grass-fed butter and cheese occasionally

    Do you drink coffee or tea: Green tea with lemon regularly

    Motivator for switching to Primal: I got tired of the plateaus of the other "diets" (Abs Diet, vegetarian, whole grain everything, etc.) and still felt deprived of energy, still had intestinal issues, still just didn't feel "right"... I just wanted to get lean and toned and feel better.

    Favorite exercise: Anything outside... love trail running in my VFFs!

    Favorite Primal food: There are so many... nothing beats grass-fed beef/steaks... I also really dig spaghetti squash and homemade sauce!

    Best part about being Primal: No more post-lunch carb coma, better sleep, better play, better body composition, odd looks when I have to eat out and order a bunless burger, eating eggs and bacon for breakfast, no more intestinal distress or gas, creating Primal meals, Elevation Burger is 5 minutes away from the office, Big Ass Salads, having my doctor shocked at my awesome blood profile without whole grains.

    Worst part about being Primal: Eating out is no doubt the biggest challenge. Red Robin and Elevation Burger have saved the day many times. I wish more places offered lettuce wraps for burgers. Otherwise, I'd rather starve and/or wait to get home and cook. Another pet peeve of mine... having people ask how I got to be in such great shape, and then they either say "I couldn't live without my bread/pasta/pizza/other carb-and-sugar-laden food" or "I'm gonna have to do that" and then have a million excuses as to why they couldn't a few weeks later.

    The Questions:


    Your location: Sacramento, Ca.

    Age (If you want):41

    How Primal are you:somewhat

    Do you consume dairy:yes, in my coffee. And also the occasional cheeses.

    Do you drink coffee or tea:both

    Motivator for switching to Primal:weight gain

    Favorite exercise:circuits and weight training

    Favorite Primal food:chicken

    Best part about being Primal:the satiety

    Worst part about being Primal: no grains or rice.

    I think I'm doing it all wrong cause I've been gaining weight versus losing. I don't know what else to do. So I hope this forum will help me in figuring out what I'm doing wrong this whole time.

    Thanks,
    Chunli1972
