Your location: Illinois temporarily, going back to CO ASAP
Age (If you want): 25
How Primal are you: Umm.... not perfect, but pretty primal when left to my own devices
Do you consume dairy: Yup, I love cottage cheese, and regular cheese, and all other kinds of cheese. But no milk/cream
Do you drink coffee or tea: Put it this way.... there's a 99% chance I drank more coffee than you today. Black is this only way to go
Motivator for switching to Primal: Whelp, I discovered Ary Devany and MDA way back in like 2007. I was vain, 19 and entering college and thought it would be a good way to get ripped to get girls. haha.... sigh. Oh, the science and evolutionary logic behind primal also totally made sense to me too. Anyway, in college I was half-primal eating wise, but always worked out. I still drank my face off 3-4 nights a week but never gained weight (which I can attest to fasting) stayed super active and enjoyed life. (FYI: Fasting+Lots of Water+long walk = primal hangover cure) Since college, going full primal as always been in the back of my mind, b/c I've never quite had the body I wanted (again, I'm vain). However, the real motivation for me to go full primal as been because I work in Healthcare now. I'm not clinical, but I see and interact with lots of patients at a hospital. Everyday, it's the same: patients who are so sick, so obese, so frail, and just have a litany of health problems, 98% of which were completely preventable but they've been poisoning themselves for a lifetime. So sad and heartbreaking. Everyday it's a reminder: THIS COULD BE YOU, DON'T LET THIS HAPPEN. Anyway, primal is awesome. I feel great everyday.
Favorite exercise: As my username suggests: Skiing! In the gym: Push Press
Favorite Primal food: The Incredible Edible Egg!
Best part about being Primal: I just feel awesome everyday
Worst part about being Primal: I still encounter the "oh, you're a low carbs freak" stigma quite a bit.... idiots

Your location: SE Texas
Age (If you want): 25
How Primal are you: Mostly, however I drink too much caffeine!
Do you consume dairy:yes
Do you drink coffee or tea: both, I tend towards Coffee more often.
Motivator for switching to Primal: Slow but steady growing of allergic reaction symptoms with a climax of incredible stabbing abdominal pains. Ditching WHEAT, and knowing that Primal was the only change that made any sense from my own studying of it well before. Wheat allergy gave me an excuse to jump headfirst into it!
Favorite exercise: Sprinting!
Favorite Primal food: MEAT
Best part about being Primal: Freedom from the ups and downs of SAD
Worst part about being Primal: Having to explain myself to those that refuse to understand and see that simple and more natural is better and watching as others struggle day by day when there is a simpler change that would fix a myriad of problems... can you guess what it is?
