    I live in Idaho (woohoo)
    I am 31
    I have been Primal for about 3 years 70/30 in the past, but am now about 95/5. (Wine is my 5 )
    I do eat dairy, probably too much.
    I love coffee, again, probably too much.
    I switched to primal because it felt right. I knew the way we have been eating for the last 50-60 years with all the "recommendations" was killing us.
    I love lifting weights, but have had a lot of babies and neck issues the past couple years. Just discovered wake skating though.
    My favorite food is butternut squash lasagna. From the Primal cravings cookbook!!!!!! (which made my cry happiness the first time I looked through it)
    Best part is the food and ease of preparing most of it. It's real food!
    Worst part=? Maybe that I can't lose the last 20lbs after having my 5th child 3 months ago. It won't budge an inch despite being very primal.

    The Questions:


    Your location: Somewhere in the US

    Age (If you want): 20-something

    How Primal are you: scale of 1-10, an 8

    Do you consume dairy: yes

    Do you drink coffee or tea: no

    Motivator for switching to Primal: To gain health. I've been overweight and out of shape for most of my life. I started working out this past March and I'm starting to see some results. I'm headed in the right direction and eating Primal is a big factor in all of that.

    Favorite exercise: push ups

    Favorite Primal food: steak and eggs

    Best part about being Primal: Having energy to get up and do things. Before I went Primal, I was sluggish despite eating a fairly clean, low carb diet. Since going Primal 4 months ago, I have felt great (except for when I fall off the wagon). No more brain fog, no more cravings for crap, and I've lost over 30 lbs.

    Worst part about being Primal: There is not anything bad about being Primal to me. I do miss beer, but not much.

    Your location: South SF Bay Area

    Age (If you want): 26

    How Primal are you: I'm just starting to clean out my cupboards of grains and baking ingredients - so in terms of diet, not much at all. I think my activity style lines up a little more.

    Do you consume dairy: Yes.

    Do you drink coffee or tea: Both.

    Motivator for switching to Primal: I want to really thrive.

    Favorite exercise: Walking and lifting heavy things.

    Favorite Primal food: That's hard to say. Everything is pretty good.

    Best part about being Primal: Since I haven't really dived in yet, I can't say definitively what the best thing is. However, I'm looking forward to feeling as awesome as all the people in the before/after stories report.

    Worst part about being Primal: I'm not looking forward to any temporary inconveniences while ditching my grains.

    Your location: New York

    Age (If you want): 22

    How Primal are you: I was 100% primal at the start of 2013 for the first three months, but since I graduated college and started studying for the CPA exam I have stopped and gained back all the weight and problems that I had once lost and now I want to get back to the healthier version of myself, when I was more primal

    Do you consume dairy: I made the switch to almond milk around 7 months ago and haven't had "real" dairy milk since, although my only cheat has been on ice cream.

    Do you drink coffee or tea: I drink coffee (black) every morning! (it's a must to get through the day!)

    Motivator for switching to Primal: As mentioned above, I have tried it before and the benefits were amazing! I regret going off of it and I seem to have blamed it on graduating from school and moving back home, but I have decided I can't use that excuse anymore and it is time to get back to the healthier me!

    Favorite exercise: I just started doing Bikram (hot) yoga, and I love it! I also do interval sprints on the treadmill and different circuit training with a kettlebell.

    Favorite Primal food: Chicken! Also, I love any type of salads... especially with chicken!

    Best part about being Primal: Feeling a natural source of energy and virtually no stomach (digestion) pain ever! (keeps you super regular... if you know what I mean.)

    Worst part about being Primal: My weakness has been peanut butter... I'm obsessed. I also get major cravings sometimes for potato chips and/or chocolate.

    About to begin...

    In other forums I've been a member of in the past - at least for small communities - there's been a 'introduce yourself' thread with some questions that people can answer. I know that there are people reading this forum that are fully primal, partially primal, and are considering it. I thought that I'd put some questions together to cover these things just to get an idea of who's out there.


    The Questions:


    Your location:memphis

    Age (If you want):43

    How Primal are you:starting this weekend

    Do you consume dairy:yes

    Do you drink coffee or tea:coffee

    Motivator for switching to Primal:lose weight, health, energy and for my kids

    Favorite exercise:5:30 bootcamp

    Favorite Primal food:steak and avocado

    Best part about being Primal:hoping to feel cleaner

    Worst part about being Primal:scared to start
