    Do you consume dairy: yes, still

    Do you drink coffee or tea: 2 Espressi throughout the day, couple of cups of tea

    Motivator for switching to Primal: health issues like being allergic to many things, high triglycerids, heart illness in the family. Not a real
    issue is weight (72kg@183cm), although I think reducing a bit body fat by building muscle would be a big benefit

    Your location: Almere, The Netherlands. It's close to Amsterdam.

    Age (If you want): 19

    How Primal are you: Only thing I'm not doing is eating everything organic, but I'm doing my best. Also I sometimes have a litte cheating going on, but thats about it.

    Do you consume dairy: Yes.

    Do you drink coffee or tea: Green Tea, nothing else.

    Motivator for switching to Primal: Main reason was just wanting to be a much fitter person then I was. I was always bussy with reading about fitness, new diets etc. When I came across MDA everything that was on the site just made sense. All the other stuff suddenly just sounded like a lot of crap.

    Favorite exercise: Squats and sprints (next week I finally get my vibrams).

    Favorite Primal food: A big piece of meat w/ broccoli will always do it for me .

    Best part about being Primal: Dammmmm, it does feel good to be so fit and look good.

    Worst part about being Primal: Explaining other people why I'm eating like this.

    Your location: Lancaster, OH

    Age (If you want): 35

    How Primal are you: Partially Primal. I'm 90-95% from 6:00am to 6:00pm, but things get a bit tougher after work when the wife starts insisting that dinner must contain bread, potatoes, and/or pasta. I pick my battles, and do not want to impose my new dietary habits on the whole family right out of the gate. I hope to win them over slowly.

    Do you consume dairy: Yes, though I am slowly weening myself off full fat, whole milk, which is the only milk I've ever drank (I cannot stand the watery consistency of fat-reduced milks).

    Do you drink coffee or tea: I enjoy between 2-3 cups of black coffee every morning. I've drank coffee for 17 years, and smoked for even longer than that. I tried not having coffee one morning and found quitting coffee cold turkey was harder than quitting smoking. I have cut my coffee intake in half though.

    Motivator for switching to Primal: Over the past seven years I've buried three of my four grandparents, my father (67, heart attack), his youngest brother (57, heart attack), my oldest sister (45, pancreatic cancer), have seen my mother suffer two strokes, a knee replacement, and have stints inserted in both kidneys, and lastly have seen my dad's oldest brother undergo surgery to have a large tumor cut out of his skull. I would not call anyone in my immediate family obese, and generally we all do right by CW nutrition guidelines (the government food pyramid), are pretty fit, and enjoy plenty of outdoor activities and play. When my sister passed away two months ago from cancer I was crushed, not so much for my loss, but to see her leave behind her children, who aren't even out of high school yet. I decided then that I needed to make a change to my dietary habits, because I want to be around 20 or 25 years from now when my baby girls are all grown up and need their father to walk them down the aisle. I started P90x on March 17, and like a lot of people I suppose, found MDA through Mark's presence in the P90x program.

    Favorite exercise: I really do enjoy doing the Plyometrics and Kenpo X sessions in the P90x program. Despite Mark's derision towards Chronic Cardio, I like running 5Ks too, and credit P90x and primal nutrition to shaving four minutes off my 5K time in just one month.

    Favorite Primal food: Steak & eggs. I am a convert to almond meal since going primal. I'm not sure I'd ever had almond meal before two weeks ago (in fact, I'm not a big fan of almonds) but since going primal I've used it as a breading for pork chops, fish and have baked blueberry muffins with it. Delicious.

    Best part about being Primal: My Big Ass Salad is a lot cheaper than the combo meals I routinely enjoyed on my lunch breaks pre-PB. It's nice to stop by the grocery store every three or four days and spend $20 on a basket full of fresh fruits and vegetables rather than do the $150 trip on the weekend for a cart full of boxed, processed foods.

    Worst part about being Primal: Looking at all the Easter candy currently on sale at the grocery stores. I am a glutton for Reese's Peanut Butter Eggs.

    How Primal are you: Just got off a Vegan cleanse about a month ago and now am turning full primal...hahahah....

    Do you consume dairy: a little - Cheese here and there, and greek yogurt

    Do you drink coffee or tea: NO - Gave coffee up about 4 months ago and havnt looked back

    Motivator for switching to Primal: Needed a change of pace and wanted to see what it was all about. Being Vegan for a bit was fun, no doubt, but at times i was very full and didn't feel i was getting enough nutrients.

    Favorite exercise: I am a loyal consumer to Beachbody products - P90X, Insanity, and so forth. But, I do love to surf a good wave.

    Favorite Primal food: My Big A$$ salad at lunch that I stole from Mark...thanks Mark!

    Best part about being Primal: the convenience

    Worst part about being Primal: Havn't figured that one out yet...TBD

    Well, I just wanted to introduce myself and say thanks to Mark for the great read on PB and to all the members for sharing the great experiences and recipes. This is going to be quite the journey and I am excited....I was wondering if anyone could help me out...being a newbie and all I was thinking maybe someone could chime in and give advice on something...

    You see I am going to a family dinner tonight and below is a link to the menu....what would be my best options....

    - Just click on "dinner" menu

    - Andrew
