I'm a hick, and desperately want to go Primal. Part of the problem is disciplining myself and turning away from being a hick, and the other part is getting my family on board (since I eat what they give me). However, I was wondering if there are any country people on here who have gone primal and have any tips. I'm a camo and carhartt, tobacco spittin', boot wearing redneck; and want to know how people made the change to the barefoot movement, and everything else. My current career choice that I'm in school for, welding, it is 100% mandatory you wear boots and most even require steel toes. Is the switch to barefoot that big of a necessity? Along with that, any tips for switching and convincing my family to switch are much appreciated.
