    Primal Fuel
    Hi, great idea Timconradinc

    I live in Ontario, Canada (any Canadians out there?)
    I'm 27
    I'd say I'm 60-75% Primal and I've been at it for three weeks. I eat a lot of eggs, meat, veg, dairy, and occasionally grain (I.e cereal if I'm running late). I've done really well at cutting out sugar and processed foods which is awesome considering I was a chochoholic and carb addict.

    Tea, once a week with cream and sugar

    My motivation was improved mental health as I have suffered from severe depression & anxiety for a few years. When I was still depressed on meds my best friend suggested cutting out grains and sugar. The difference has been AMAZING!!

    I haven't been exercising much yet as my job as a pet groomer is labour intensive and I do heavy lifting at my p/t pet store job as well. For now, walking our dogs in the forest

    Fav thing about Primal- I've lost weight in 2 weeks without even trying

    Worst thing... Getting sick as my body adjusts and gets rid of all the built up crap and toxins

    Hi Graham
    I'm just wondering where you found the book to download? I'd love to read it on my iPhone.
    thanks!

    Your location: Coastal New England

    Age (If you want): 54

    How Primal are you: Pretty primal (no grains or legumes, some dairy)

    Do you consume dairy: Yes: some cheeses, real yogurt, pasture butter, cream from a local farm

    Do you drink coffee or tea: Yes, teas mostly; occasional fair trade decaf coffee

    Motivator for switching to Primal: Had been doing whole foods Atkins and wanted to clean up my diet even more. I'm also tired of wading through endless posts on Atkins/LC boards about SF sweeteners, frankenfoods and how to make LC junk food. I didn't really fit in with my whole foods approach to Atkins even though that is what Dr. A wrote we should strive for. I've also been getting into the locavore thing and PB works really well with that.

    Favorite exercise: Yard work, home improvements/maintenance and I play around with my Wii fitness games sometimes for fun.

    Favorite Primal food: Bison, freshly-caught fish

    Best part about being Primal: Feeling good about the foods I put in my body

    Worst part about being Primal: Trying to find local foods in the winter.
