[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.
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 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!

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.

I just joined yesterday
is the carb / protein/ fat thing overwheliming for everyone or just me?
I really want to do this one right.

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.
