    The Questions:


    Your location: New York, capitol region

    Age (If you want): 15

    How Primal are you: Not as primal as I used to be. I try my best to do what I know is best for my body, but adherence has become more difficult lately for some reason

    Do you consume dairy: I love yogurt. I'm beginning to think I should stay away from it but a good, simple whole milk yogurt with nuts, chia seeds, and berries is pretty hard to beat. Favorite brands are Stonybrook and Fage.

    Do you drink coffee or tea: Coffee.. love the smell, hate the taste. I do like a nice steaming cup of herbal tea though, helps me relax.

    Motivator for switching to Primal:
    Began eating more consciously a little over 1 year ago and eventually it turned into an obsession. I was competitively rowing around the clock while calorie restricting on a conventional healthy diet. I lost a bit of weight, probably around 4-6 lbs, but my mentality about food was not healthy. When I discovered paleo and eventually MDA (especially when I read up on the science behind it all) I realized I needed to change. Began eating more by instinct rather than numbers and became happier, healthier, and stronger.

    Favorite exercise:
    I do mostly weight lifting and my favorite lift changes every now and then. Lately I've been getting into olympic lifts and crossfit style stuff and as of right now my favorite lift is the squat clean.

    Favorite Primal food: wild atlantic mackerel. Whole, off the grill with a pinch of truffle salt. The head is the best part, no joke.

    Best part about being Primal:
    You feel satiated all the time and have great energy, I actually can't remember any time when I felt truly hungry or felt low on steam while eating and acting 100% primal. At other times, however, it is a lot more noticeable.

    Worst part about being Primal: Living in a house with a family that doesn't share your interests in health/fitness and the cost of quality food (on top of the non primal food the rest of the fam likes). Its hard to stick to it when you know the nuisance you can be "did you cook these veggies in vegetable oil?" "Where is this pork from?" etc

    Do you drink coffee or tea: Both. Coffee daily, green tea when I feel like making it.

    Hi everyone!
    I just want to introduce myself and send greetings from Germany!
    female, like sports, interested in nutrition, a bit fed up with dieting/couting calories, food reglementation (no, I'm not over weight but since I was 12 living in a diet-world).
    I'm new to this "family" here - reading the threads I got this impression - and I'm looking foward to discuss.
    For now I'm not really into the PB (especially the nutrition), but eager to learn and test. Intuitive eating is what I'm aiming at.
    Sorry for idiomatic/ spelling mistakes - I'm not a native speaker!
    Have a nice day!
