Well, I've been reading the site for almost a year now, trying to go Primal for 4 months and loving it! But, just joined today. Let's see:
Location: Monterrey, NL, Mexico (I can't believe I'm the second person from Mexico, it's unbelievable!)
Age: 21 and a half exactly!
How primal? Not much, really. I mean, I've kissed good bye rice and pasta, eat like two pieces of bread in the last four months but all the meat I eat it's still corn-fed, so I know I'm way too far from the goals, but at least I'm on the right direction!
Dairy: YES! Although my intestines complained when I tried to do GOMAD I do drink at least 1 liter of milk a day, and cheese every once in a while. Like, very in a while.
Tea or coffee? Rarely. I'm the only college student in my class who won't drink coffee to wake up. Never. I just drink it when socializing, and it's usually either a latte or black tea, no sugar.
Motivation: Well, it's funny actually, but I don't have a real motivation. I just read the website, thought the advice made sense, and started following it. Although having reduced the amount of aisles I visit in the supermarket is a good motivator =)
Favorite Exercise: I suck at them, but Handstand Pushups. I can only do them with my feet on the wall. And pullups.
Favorite primal food: MEAT!!! My mom went vegetarian and I just couldn't do it. When I came to college I was CRAVING for meat. So anything meat is great. Also love chicken thighs when properly sauteed.
Best part: Food is great, exercise is simple, I don't get as sick as I used to.
Worst part: Being a college student with a huge homework load and a tiny budget.
I actually Stumbled on the website a year ago, while doing a summer internship in Boulder, CO (Go Buffaloes!!!). I was looking for easy-to-do recipes since I was living in an apartment with no kitchen supplies, and was a little sick of school cafeterias and doing the same food every week. I have to say I followed the advice for a couple of weeks before coming back to Mexico, but when the semester started I had little free time to cook, and I don't have neither an oven nor a broiler (reducing the amount of recipes I can do in a huge number). In january, I tried again but then this HUGE flu kicked me around for three weeks, and I had my defenses somewhere lower than the 9th circle of Dante's Inferno, my energy even lower than that, and couldn't cook. After that, finally made myself commit to it and started doing it by the book (which I made the school's library get, so I could read it for free, and leave it to all my schoolmates in case they are interested) and I've never felt better. Except of course for the exams week when I had to eat in the cafeterias again.
If the laws of thermodynamics don't prevent you from doing it, then it is not impossible!!!
