Hello! My name's Kate. I'm a Colorado native living in Seoul, Korea for the past two and half years. I've been a vegetarian most of my life, but slowly incorporating meat into my diet. I was tired of being tired and having to eat every 4 hours. Since my mother, age 60, got on the Primal diet this summer, and have lost a fair amount of weight I've been interested in it.
Besides the new diet, I love traveling (spent 6 months this summer going back to the States and through SE Asia), rock climbing, and running. I'm a grad student, teacher, and korean language learner (very slowly).
As with everyone, I would like to lose fat and ton up. Can't wait to see the gradual transformation this summer, in time to go learn scuba diving in the Philippians this February.
I'm a former vegetarian, too
Anyone else see "Ahn-nyung" and the first thing that comes to mind is Arrested Development?

Welcome! My boyfriend was stationed in Seoul for nearly a year and he loved it there.

Currently trying to figure out WTF to eat (for IBS-C).
Welcome Kate! I'm half Korean and lived in Seoul for a few years. I imagine it's hard to be a vegetarian there but it's easy to be Primal with Korean food.

Thanks ya'll. It's really hard to be a veggie in Seoul. My friend's been a veggie for 10+yrs around the world and she said she starved in Korea. Almost glad to be back eating meat again, loosing weight and feeling healthy.
Hi Kate! Welcome!

Primal Blueprint Explorer My blog for people who are not into the Grok thing. Since starting the blog, I have moved close to being Archevore instead of Primal. But Mark's Daily Apple is still the best source of information about living an ancestral lifestyle.
