    Your location: Albuquerque, NM


    Age (If you want): 28


    How Primal are you: Still eat dairy and could definitely step up the workouts/activities by a lot.


    Do you consume dairy: Yes, but only cheese and butter and trying to be more selective of the types of cheese I buy.


    Do you drink coffee or tea: Both, unsweetened tea and black coffee of course (mostly organic).


    Motivator for switching to Primal: Weight loss. Son of Grok is a good friend of mine and I was impressed by his results and was immediately sold.


    Favorite exercise: Walking.


    Favorite Primal food: SoG's (almost) primal poppers.


    Best part about being Primal: Eating as much as I want of the right things and not feeling deprived or hungry all the time. Also the super fast results and the looks on people's faces when they haven't seen you in a while.


    Worst part about being Primal: The absence of pizza and beer from my life hahaha. Also not being able to go out to eat just anywhere with friends, but it's worth the sacrifice.

    Your location: OHIO


    Age (If you want): 24


    How Primal are you: I would say about 85%. More most days, less on a select few (love that fruit).


    Do you consume dairy: ...yes. But I have just altered my share to be less milk and more cream, so overall less dairy. Sigh.


    Do you drink coffee or tea: I cup of each per day, with stevia and cream.


    Motivator for switching to Primal: Honestly, looks, energy and health. I ate really healthy before, but I knew I could do better (ie no grains). Im not very overweight but I have a few to lose, and I do feel A LOT better now with no grains.


    Favorite exercise: Playing. Hiking, biking and garden/housework. And dancing, haha.


    Favorite Primal food: All the veggies! I am eating lower protein right now b/c all I do is study (Ill up it when Im working out for real) but I eat my veg primarily raw, so I get creative! Its fun and yummy.


    Best part about being Primal: Feeling great, [eventually] looking good and having energy. Everything tastes sweeter not that I dont eat sweets, so a little goes a LONG way now. Awesome!


    Worst part about being Primal: NO SCONES! No grainy, rustic bread, no more homemade pastas, no steel cut oats, no cookie dough. Its alright though, I still cheat a little bit every few weeks so I dont go nuts!

    Life on Earth may be punishing, but it includes an annual free trip around the sun!
