    How Primal are you: Approx. 80% of the time. Grains are still a challenge for me.

    Your location: Melbourne, Australia

    Age (If you want): 24

    How Primal are you: As much as possible - organic seasonal veggies, organic meat where available, organic eggs, and some organic dairy.

    Do you consume dairy: I'm cutting back, if there were raw dairy products available I'd probably use them, but I'm experimenting with what weight change occurs while restricting dairy...

    Do you drink coffee or tea: White tea, green tea, in the evening as a 'snack'.

    Motivator for switching to Primal: Graduated from low-carb to primal as the science I was studying lead me down the garden path..

    Favorite exercise: Hm. Yeah. I walk to work... But if I were getting formal exercise, I'd be tempted to join a dance class since I love it, and yoga for the bodyweight and flexibility work.

    Favorite Primal food: Cabbage.

    Best part about being Primal: All the positives of low carb (blood sugar stability, weight loss, mood control) with the addition of the goodness of organic foods - my skin has been first to thank me!

    Worst part about being Primal: Having to explain why I can't share in the birthday cake.

    Do you consume dairy: yes and have just ordered my first raw milk! Can't wait. I'm so confused, is it illegal? It's like trying to get crack delivered. And I worry about the cleanliness of the facility. If I don't post again, you'll know what happened to me.

    Motivator for switching to Primal: i was running 6 days a week and eating rice cakes and totally baffled that i wasn't losing weight. i increased my protein as a last resort and the fat loss finally jump started. this got me thinking about what my body really wants. I fed that thought into a few google searches which led me here.

    Best part about being Primal:i am healthier than i have ever been - i KNOW it because i FEEL it!

    Worst part about being Primal: trying to help others to entertain the idea that their bizarre, hard round stomachs might have something to do with the USDA Food Pyramid.

    I also miss the home made bread... and sometimes i still desperately want a doughnut.

    Your location: Spain, yay ribera del duero's resveratrol!

    Age (If you want): 25

    How Primal are you: if dairy is primal, then i am 90% primal -- the only non primal food is ice cream once per week (it's gluten free haagend dazs), a diet coke once in a blue moon, and the rare artificial sweetener at that time of the month to keep sugar cravings at bay.

    Do you consume dairy: kefir and cheese

    Do you drink coffee or tea: i have reduced my coffee intake from 7 cups to 1 cup a day (and banished diet coke), i rarely have tea.

    Motivator for switching to Primal: that i am inflammation's poster child... I got MS since my teens, rosacea, perioral dermatitis, sebhorreic and athopic dermatitis, lots of other "itis", my weight has been creeping up since my teens...

    Favorite exercise: walking it's the only thing i can do right know, and what can be more primal?

    Favorite Primal food: MEAT. I am a hunter at heart. And blueberries. And broccoli. And nuts.

    Best part about being Primal: the deep sense of "this is right" that comes from the fact that it makes sense (something I can't say about 50% things I gotta study at medical school) in the light of science, evolution (but i repeat myself) and just common sense. It also helps that it is not a one size fits all: it allows for flexibility (you don't have to be 100% "do what i say or die" primal -- which is just not realistic for most people).

    Worst part about being Primal: I really really don't want to give up cheese or ice cream - ever! I live in Spain and got family in Italy: manchego, parmesan, mascarpone... C'mon I don't even have paella or pizza anymore, organic manchego with a bit of real balsamic vinegar can't be that bad!
