    How Primal are you: 95%, I try for 100% but am not obsessive

    Do you consume dairy: no except per month about 1/4 cup KerryGold grass fed butter, 1/8 cup creamed cheese and 1 lb aged cheese.

    Do you drink coffee or tea: black decaffeinated coffee one cup per day

    Motivator for switching to Primal: I am a physiologist, makes pure sense, can't beat the logic or science, and I got results

    Favorite exercise: swimming, sailing

    Favorite Primal food: bacon

    Best part about being Primal: health and sense of well-being

    Worst part about being Primal: Less beer, went from 6 Coronas a day to two Bud Select 55s a day

    Here is my story. I am a professional physiologist, specialist in carbohydrate metabolism. The more I researched and studied carbs, fats, inflammation triggers, polyphenolics and designed custom diets to manage diseases (using medical foods), the closer and closer I came to realize I was advocating a paleo diet. Adding some logic (and not rejecting ALL foods that were not available 15,000 years ago, but allowing those that fit the concept metabolically) and lifestyle changes brought me to Primal. I am male, was 224 lbs (did not look fat at all though), 6 ft, with triglycerides 321 and TC 322, BP 134/85. I made my own induction phase. For one month I had one egg and 1 cup black coffee for breakfast, a 10 oz bag of leaf salad at lunch, a mixed salad (lettuce, broccolli, cauliflower, carrots) and all the seafood I could eat for dinner. Only drank water. In one month the triglycerides and LDLs were cut in half and within recommended range, BP 117/80, weight 194. From then on I consumed a "normal" Primal diet, probably very close to what Mark Sisson eats, but I do not exercise nearly as much, I consume 1 glass of red wine and 2 Bud 55s a day, and 4 oz aged cheese over the weekends. My numbers have remained the same for months, but I am now down to 190. I feel great and folks tell me I look great.

    Age (If you want):53

    How Primal are you:About 80-90%

    Do you consume dairy:yes - I can't find any non dairy alternative to low fat milk in my morning coffee - don't like fatty coffee - and I love yogurt especially Turkish - 10% fat

    Do you drink coffee or tea: Yes all the time - though I have cut the coffee to 2-3 cup mainly decaf and drink herbal teas the rest of the day

    Motivator for switching to Primal: have always been keen on good fresh organic home grown food but cutting grains and pulses seems to work with me too - Having Gone primal I can tell I don't have a gluten allergy but I have always enjoyed a relatively low carb diet (below 100g) and it is much easier without the grains etc.

    Favorite exercise: Strength training and walking and hiking (can't decide which is favourite)

    Favorite Primal food: Smoked salmon?

    Best part about being Primal: feel good, and lose weight in fits and starts especially as i practice 5/2 diet with it

    Worst part about being Primal: not wanting to eat he foods I used to enjoy!

    Heya

    Your location: Netherlands

    Age (If you want): 25

    How Primal are you: 85-90%

    Do you consume dairy: Yup

    Do you drink coffee or tea: Both, please.

    Motivator for switching to Primal: Sounded interesting, paleo sounded interesting but a bit 'too much', reading The Primal Blueprint just made a lot of sense.

    Favorite exercise: Bodyweight exercises! At the moment I'd say my favourite exercise is the decline push up but that might just be because of how epic I feel for even being able to do those

    Favorite Primal food: Bananas! Still can't get over the fact that I never realised that if flour-based banana pancakes were awesome it would be much, much better if you just combine egg with banana (and perhaps some coconut flour or dried coconut - but I think plain egg/banana pancakes are the best. Ever.)

    Best part about being Primal: Enjoying real, good-for-you, food much more than when my tastebuds were being ruined by all the sugar and additives in processed junk.

    Worst part about being Primal: Sometimes being thought of as weird. Oh... and farts got a lot smellier.

    Have you tried almond milk? You can make your own too if there are no unsweetened brands sold over there.
