    How Primal are you: Been primalish my whole life thanks to growing up on an island and coupled with being an outdoor fanatic. Slight diet and lifestyle changes have brought me into the very primal level. Now its about getting as fit as possible and enjoying life.

    Do you consume dairy: Fermented or Raw only. Love whole milk riscotta or cottage cheese and fruit.

    Do you drink coffee or tea: Little bit of coffee and tea or rare occasions, not to fond of the taste.

    Motivator for switching to Primal: Been paloe-ish for a while, it was the non-diet based changes that I am making after reading the book, going slower about training and sleeping being the big ones.

    Favorite exercise: Climbing and Natural training. I love swimming and cliff diving as well.

    Favorite Primal food: Riscotta and fruit (not super primal), Pork tenderloin and stir fried veggies.

    Best part about being Primal: Lots of energy and not being dominated by hunger.

    Worst part about being Primal: Hot cross buns at good friday, I indulged a little.
    It is sad that the measuring stick of our progress is the speed by which we distance ourselves from the natural world. Even sadder is that we will only see this when there is no nature left to save.

    OK, I'm new and ind of just jumped into a few other forums already but figured I should put my info out there too so here it is:
    Your location: Tualatin, Or

    Age (If you want): 39 (It's cool, I don't look my age yet)

    How Primal are you: Just getting started actually and have a lot to learn yet before I can get started.

    Do you consume dairy: I do, though not as much as I used to.

    Do you drink coffee or tea: Coffee, just one cup a day

    Motivator for switching to Primal: weight loss, prevent metabolic disorders that my family is predisposed to (diabetes, heart disease, obesity and cancer)

    Favorite exercise: When I could it was swimming. The pool is closed until weather gets warmer.

    Favorite Primal food: Unknown since officially I've not started yet

    Best part about being Primal: I'll get back to you on that...

    Worst part about being Primal: I don't know but I would have to say probably be missing out on the caramels and chocolate chip cookies at Christmas time

    I actually have a question, since everyone knows where I am now, if there is anyone else out there in the Portland, OR metro area, where can I find coconut oil for cooking and what generally is the price range? I'd appreciate any info, thanks!

    V~

    Hey everyone! Stumbled on here after doing some dietary research on the Paleo diet, read the Primal book, and sort of fell in love with the overall plan! Been Grokking it for a few weeks now, and liking the results!

    Your location: Fort Lewis, Washington (state)

    Age (If you want): 31

    How Primal are you: Trying to be 100% Primal all the time, but my family isn't, so I stumble about once a week.

    Do you consume dairy: Aside from the occasional greek yogurt (once every few weeks), no.

    Do you drink coffee or tea: I'll only drink coffee if I'm in the field - usually I'll stick to green tea.

    Motivator for switching to Primal: I got back from a staff-assignment (desk job nugging on a computer for 18 hours a day - total agony for a combat arms guy like me) in Afghanistan and looked at myself in the mirror. I had worked out a LOT while I was there, but I was taking all the wrong steps, eating like crap (soul food is such a temporary morale booster) taking all the "muscle and fitness approved" suppliments (which was EXPENSIVE might I add) and just not seeing the results I knew I was capable of. About a month before I left, I talked to one of my buddies about Paleo (certainly impossible to do in the Stan) and started doing research. When I came home in March, I knew it was time for a change. Here's where I ended up.

    Favorite exercise: I LOVE the gym. I LOVE hard workouts. So really - picking heavy things up and putting them back down is my favorite exercise.

    Favorite Primal food: Steak. Hands down.

    Best part about being Primal: Honestly, just getting to eat good food. Most diets make you sacrifice SO MUCH (and believe me - I've tried most of them). Like Mark says - this one isn't so much about a diet - it's a healthy lifestyle change.

    Worst part about being Primal: Man oh man do I miss cookies. Seriously. Things are like crack for me.

    How Primal? Just starting.

    Dairy? Yes but I have been cutting down and would like to eventually eliminate all dairy, except occasional butter.

    Coffee or Tea? Nope. Used to drink both of them frequently. Now I have absolutely no desire.

    Motivation for going Primal? Well, I've gotten pretty out of shape over the last year because of medical problems, and being a university student doesn't help. I've been on a quest for optimal health and this seems to be the ticket. It just makes sense. Luckily, I am very athletic and 6'4" so I've been able to carry the extra BF just fine. But I don't like it at all. I want my 8 pack of old back. And I want to be functionally strong and fast. I am going to be a professional triathlete after graduating next year so it's time to push it into gear (I know triathlon isn't exactly Primal but I don't care because I LOVE it and I am good at it. I'll just eat more fruit.)

    Favorite Exercise: Ha well, I'd have to say Swim, Bike, Run for sure (chronic cardio!). But as for strength exercises, I love burpees and pullups.

    Favorite Primal food: Bacon, hands down. Could eat it all day.

    Best part about being Primal: Well, I haven't done it for too long, just a few weeks now, but I like my clear head and extra energy (mental, social, and physical). I also like how easy it is to lose BF.

    Worst Part about being Primal: Probably the adjustment to fat burning in workouts as opposed to carb burning. I mean that because I've found that some of my recent runs have been a lot more strenuous than usual even at an aerobic pace. My legs aren't feeling too peppy.

    Hey Tim,
    I'm in Tampa, FL
    43 years young
    probably about 80% Primal
    shun dairy products although do eat some goat cheese once in a while
    my wife is Brasillian so I do drink coffee lol but I am also fond of caffene free organic teas
    I just feel and perform better when I eat mainly Primal
    I am quite fond of kettlebell exercises
    Its hard to say what my favorite Primal food is but quite frankly I'm not a big meat eater but I do like seafood and enjoy a lot of raw foods
    Best part of being Primal is staying lean, healthy, and being able to perform at a high level
    worst part is going out to eat

    I'm not in Portland, but I get what I think is a good price(at least compaired to local health food stores)at vitacost.com. I also get hemp protein from them.
