    Primal Blueprint Expert Certification
    Your location: Germany (but dreaming of Argentina to come)

    Age (If you want): 24

    How Primal are you: a very lot. But I do love canned tomatoes (don't know if they are primal) and the casual nut butter + the manufactured fruit syrups I put into my homemade cocoa pudding)

    Do you consume dairy: couldn't live without raw cheese and butter

    Do you drink coffee or tea: only if i am offered to or have caught a terrible cold

    Motivator for switching to Primal: the migraines and the plethora of health outcomes

    Favorite exercise: cycling, volleyball, badminton, workouts

    Favorite Primal food: meat and peas, and of course butter!

    Best part about being Primal: the tasty food

    Worst part about being Primal: the frequent dreams I got now about eating all kinds of junk food. It's like the legacy of my former self who subsisted almost entirely on sweets, pancakes, bread and noodles (I'm a fervent follower of the ketogenic lifestyle)

    Hello all,
    I live in Knoxville, TN and I am 48 as of this past April. I hope to be fully primal after finishing the book. I have already started with the quick list in the back of the book of things I don't have to avoid!

    I do consume dairy in the form of cheese and yogurt. I don't like to drink milk but I do like the occasional chocolate milk. I love drinking sweet tea (southern girl, GRITS). I will be making the switch but will most likely use Truvia still. I do love my morning coffee as well.

    My motivation for switching was after I talked to a good friend of mine who has lost 35 pounds so far and I asked her how she did it. She told me about the "Primal Blueprint". I always thought that the processed foods of today were unhealthy and I know our ancestors did so much better farming and eating what they grew. Of course with the fast-paced society of today that has become tougher. I have diabetes and high cholesterol so I need to find a lifestyle change that will work for me. Fad diets do not and if there was a pill that would make it all go away the U.S. would be a skinny nation and we are not.

    My favorite exercise would be running and Zumba. I am signed up for five half-marathons this year (one has already been completed) and a few 5k's so far and I am sure I will do more. I am a MAJOR slowrunner! I just love the competitiveness and challenge of completing a half-marathon. I have completed two full marathons but they don't have as much appeal to me anymore.

    Without studying all of the primal foods...so far...I would say Steak.

    Best part about being primal will be the healthy feeling and the worst part will be my lack of sugar (sweet tea, chocolate, etc.).

    I look forward to reading the forums and blogs.
    Michele

    How Primal are you: depends on the day and energy level. We've currently focusing on GAPS for gut health as a family.

    Do you consume dairy: Occassionaly, but I definitely feel better without it. Do ok with it as a condiment rather than a food group. Typically only consume high quality raw dairy.

    Do you drink coffee or tea: Rarely as I respond very poorly and end up not sleeping if consumed after lunchtime.

    Motivator for switching to Primal: Have adrenal fatigue (dx diagnosed), Hashimotos and celiac - I can't function without being fairly grain free and feel much better with more fat (primal) than I do paleo.

    Favorite exercise: None? Seriously, I frequently have a hard time coping with just getting through the day and REQUIRE 9 hours of sleep a night. I've been cardio free (other than walking a couple times a week) for almost 2 years on doctors orders. I am starting to think that doing some heavy lifting might feel good.

    Favorite Primal food: grass fed steak

    Best part about being Primal: ability to keep my head above water!

    Worst part about being Primal: dishes

    New here. A friend of mine has been doing Primal Blueprint since early this year, and has been very successful. He recommended I look into it, so I came to the site and did a bunch of reading. Looking forward to trying to get into it. I don't have a problem exercising at all, it's just the eating thing that is an issue for me. I consume alot of bread and grains, and hopefully I can change that.



    The Questions:

    Age (If you want): 28

    How Primal are you: Just looking into getting into it

    Do you consume dairy: Yes, it never really has been something I've tried to avoid

    Do you drink coffee or tea: coffee - with cream and sugar..probably way too much at that

    Motivator for switching to Primal: looking for something to lose weight that works.

    Favorite exercise: cycling, road and mountain

    Favorite Primal food: TBA

    Best part about being Primal: TBA

    Worst part about being Primal: TBA
