    taichitrav entrance to natural eating

    Shop Now
    Hi all. I've been reading and researching on MDA for a few weeks now. So, thought I'd make it official and say hello to you all.


    The Questions:


    Your location: Raleigh, NC

    Age (If you want): 38

    How Primal are you: 85% plus

    Do you consume dairy: only Pepperjack cheese. Sweet, sweet pepperjack cheese. Thinking of using Greek Yogurt on occasion. Haven't had any yet though.

    Do you drink coffee or tea: Coffee nearly every morning. With French Vanilla or Hazelnut creamer. This is my crack. Looking to make my own primal-based hazelnut creamer soon though.

    Motivator for switching to Primal: Logic. My body comes from the earth; so, too, shall my food.

    Favorite exercise: Kung fu practice. My LHT comes in the following form: Day 1: Pushup Base; Day 2: Squat Base; Day 3: Pullup Base; Day 4: Recuperation

    Favorite Primal food: Right now my favorite go-to meal has been pork chop and 4 eggs. I have only adjusted my WOE in the past month, so I don't have a lot of different primal meal experiences. I'm somewhat lazy, so my meals are simple. Meat/eggs/fruit/veggie - most, if not all, just in their natural state and/or heated/cooked w/ some seasonings if needed. I hardly ever make any concotions or recipes. I look forward to learning how to use more fresh herbs though.

    Best part about being Primal: Ease of cooking and shopping. Only two stops in the grocery store: Produce and Meat Departments.

    Worst part about being Primal: So far, the guilt of still using my chemical-crack creamer in my coffee.

    I started Primal WOE mid-June. So far, I'm down 9.2 lbs. Rock on Natural Foods!!

    Good day,

    a friend told me about this type of eating and I have been interested in it for a long time. I have worked out most of my life on and off however just recently turned 40 years old and I am having difficulty keeping the weight off. I am now weighing approximately 300 lbs and I am eager to jump right into this primal eating. I started today and have already noticed a small reduction in bloating. My friend told me you can't outtrain a bad diet and I think I have had some experience with this. Just joined this website tonight and would really appreciate it if someone could help me get started. I have a very busy schedule however i feel i can succeed if it's simplified. Would appreciate any help offered.

    Thank you.
    Ryan

    Your location: Chicago

    Age (If you want): 32

    How Primal are you: Brand new. Have flirted with wheat-free now and then, but really working to become grain-free.

    Do you consume dairy: Yeah. Working on grains first, but I am a big fan of all things cheese

    Do you drink coffee or tea: About one cup of each per day.

    Motivator for switching to Primal: I work out a lot, but am still holding onto too much body fat, so my results aren't as visible as I would like. Have been reading so much information on MDA pages and it all just makes so much SENSE.

    Favorite exercise: Strength training. Especially bench press and squats. Also, am three days from finishing Insanity.

    Favorite Primal food: MEAT. Had steak, mushrooms, and asparagus for dinner last night and it was just about perfect.

    Best part about being Primal: Eating fat. Every other diet acts like it should be shunned like a plague-infected rodent. Butter just tastes so good.

    Worst part about being Primal: No sandwiches and no beans.
