    Your location: Amarillo, Tx, planning a move to Santa Fe, NM

    Age (If you want): 34

    How Primal are you: Probably 80% with the remaining 20% being a stubborn fondness for marijuana and baked goods, sweet things and alcohol

    Do you consume dairy: yes! I successfully reintroed and love to eat lots of grassfed butter, raw cheese, cultured cream, heavy cream and occasional ice cream. milk drinking is very rare.

    Do you drink coffee or tea: love coffee with cream and a little raw sugar, but try not to get too dependent on it. tea is ok too. Can easily forego both if I'm in a low stress time.

    Motivator for switching to Primal: I did strict Whole30 for months and felt great but felt it was a little too restrictive for an ongoing woe. Primal seems far more sustainable over time. I would really like to enjoy months on end of avoiding grains and still need a little support to accomplish that.

    Favorite exercise: just started with the sprints/walking, yoga, housebuilding with earth

    Favorite Primal food: butter

    Best part about being Primal: losing the belly bloat I get from eating grains

    Worst part about being Primal: Not being carefree when it comes to using convenience foods or eating out. Always eating at home, so much shopping, cooking and cleaning.

    How Primal are you: As much as I can. 80% at least am sure. Hardest part for me is finance and time. Working full time with 2 young children leaves little time and money for sourcing grass fed and organic foods. So for the most part its the supermarkets offerings

    Do you drink coffee or tea: Tea with a half sugar, cant seem to drop that

    Motivator for switching to Primal: Tried many different ways of eating, this agrees with me the best

    Favorite exercise: zumba

    Favorite Primal food:steak and cream

    Best part about being Primal: eating cream without fear and having bacon for breakfast

    Worst part about being Primal: Not being able to eat crusty bread and butter. Sigh, I give it a longing look each time I do the shopping

    Salut!

    French guy writing here
    I am not a primal newbie but new in these forums. Not sure I have much to contribute but I like chatting about foods and lifestyle. As you can guess from my forum name, I like French fries ... but only home-made and oven-baked after I coated them with a think layer of duck fat! So yes, I am a "potato" kind of guy (I am not talking about my body shape, mind you).

    If I look at the PB loose rules, I could say I am 99% primal. I do eat some (pseudo) grains and beans once in a while but I believe one should not ignore large portions of the food spectrum, I don't subscribe to the "adhere 100% to the paleo diet or prepare to suffer from neolithic diseases". Specifically, I prefer rice, quinoa (like in salads) and buckwheat (French crÍpes mmmmh!), chickpeas and occasional butterbeans.
    I do dairy as well but only the A2 type. I read that book from some New-Zealand guy and consequently switched to A2 type dairy after a long period of complete absence of dairy in our home. My kids are doing just fine on that type of dairy and I have no problem myself as long as it is fermented (not very good at lactose digestion).

    For the workout, I am into body weight stuff, core strength training, biking and lost of walking. I am quite lean (around 12% BF) but have built muscle mass over the last 6 months when I started to be serious about pull-ups and other body weight WO.
    I recently bought a slackline which I have yet to install in my garden. I was very inspired by a British fellow called Harry Cloudfoot (he's got a blog at harrycloudfoot | FREELANCE WRITER | SLACKLINE INSTRUCTOR | PERSONAL TRAINER | LONDON.). I like his self-experimenting with new things and he seems to derive a LOT of fun. That's how it should be

    OK, enough about myself. Sorry if my English sounds funny or is misspelled but this is not my mother-tongue ...

    Au revoir

    How Primal are you: I'm just starting. My kitchen is 95% primal. I'm still working on eating out and social events that revolve around food.

    Do you consume dairy: No milk or yogurt. I'm trying to reduce my cheese intake to 1-2 times a week. And I still use cream in my coffee.

    Do you drink coffee or tea: 4-6 cups of coffee a week.

    Motivator for switching to Primal: To lose weight and for overall better health. And I recently had a daughter and I don't want her to grow up with the same eating habits my parents taught me.

    Favorite exercise: walking

    Favorite Primal food: steak and pork

    Best part about being Primal: I have already had such an increase in energy and no longer have the sugar lows from eating simple carbs.

    Worst part about being Primal: Not sure yet. I certainly miss sweets but I'm hoping these cravings will lessen ASAP!
