    [QUOTE=Anonymous;280]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: Pueblo, Colorado

    Age (If you want): 44

    How Primal are you: Just starting - trying for 100%

    Do you consume dairy: As of today - just greek plain yogurt

    Do you drink coffee or tea: Neither

    Motivator for switching to Primal: Addiction to breads. Have tried other 'diets' and they aren't working. Tired of eating every 2-3 hours and having cravings and headaches if I miss a meal. Tired of being over 40 and still dealing with break outs on my face. Tired of being tired!

    Favorite exercise: walking, hiking, swimming (although I don't get to do this very often - is prob my favorite overall)

    Favorite Primal food: Eggs

    Best part about being Primal: so far, it is eating more naturally

    Worst part about being Primal: Having non primal in the house and having breads and cereals around. Hope to change that as they see me get healthier!

    Hi guys,

    I've been following the daily apple for a long time but never visited the forums. I like the personalisation aspect of paleo but I'm not a fan of restricting foods just moderating them. I'm using my blog cellyoursole as a place to explore what might help make me and my family stronger. I'm hoping to learn a lot from discussions here.

    I see the body as an extremely complex ecosystem. Far more complex than rocket science. The interplay between the aspects of hunting, gathering and eating is fascinating to me.

    The low carb/high protein/high fat is the main priority of mine.

    Welcome Tracy, I hope you have a great time with the primal lifestyle. At the outset I think the big thing to remember is to just eat real food - meat, eggs, veges, fish, some fruit nuts and dairy, while steering clear of processed items including those seed oils, most things in a package, and the grains. This should go a long way towards making you feel better and healthier.

    Then you can start to play around with the "carb / protein / fat thing". I don't count much of anything. My rather simplistic approach is to base each meal round a serving of protein, surround it with lots of colourful veges, and add a little dollop of a wholesome fat. Mix n match.
