How Primal are you: Partly?
Do you consume dairy: Heavy Cream in my Bulletproof coffee
Do you drink coffee or tea: Love both, but coffee is almost completely decaf. Contributed to stress related problems
Motivator for switching to Primal: Already low carb and finally loving it, then just recently (past 3 months) discovered Primal. I'm doing the Carb Nite Solution right now for fat loss, which is low carb (20g per day) with refeedings. I figure after I am finally at my desired weight or body composition, I will segue into Primal eating as a lifestyle. In the Carb Nite Solution, you are allowed dairy one night a week, but it doesn't have to be diary, you can make non-diary choices for your refeeds (carb loading).
Favorite exercise: Use to be aerobic dancing, but now it's weight training because of the results I get but I also love how I feel after a cardio workout. I've had a lifetime of fitness.
Favorite Primal food: Pork. Love pork. Recently started buy my bacon without nitrates and uncured. Delicious. Chicken a close second.
Best part about being Primal: Less effort in maintaining body composition and feeling great! Always have been into nutrition and fitness, except I've learned a lot about how carbs have affected my body as I've gotten older and finding it more difficult to lose weight. I am changing my lifestyle and I'm definitely fat adapted at this point.
Worst part about being Primal: I would say I might miss dairy. I get it on my refeed nights in my current diet protocol, but 6 days a week, I am very low carb. My favorite food on carb nite is ice cream and pasta. I also have adapted to gluten free because wheat gives me weird joint pain. Even my nutritional therapist says to give up the stuff. Frankly, he doesn't know I eat it - ice cream that is.
