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.
