    Hi from Belgium !

    Your location: Brussels, Belgium

    Age (If you want): 34

    How Primal are you: I've been 100 % Primal since August 25th, 2012

    Do you consume dairy: No but maybe later cheese goat from time to time

    Do you drink coffee or tea: 1 cup of coffee when I wake up, tea sometimes

    Motivator for switching to Primal: I'm insulin resistant (hyperinsulinemia) and have hypothyroidism (Hashimoto), I was diagnosed 2 years ago. My endocrinologist told me to cut off sugar and lower my carbohydrates consumption, I have seen a small improvement but I couldn't get rid of sugar completely (now I know why). Then 2 or 3 months ago, the doc advised me to replace starches by grains ! ("It's goood !"). I felt awful, I had more migraines, joint pain... so I searched for an alternative and read The Primal Blueprint. The revelation !

    Favorite exercise: Walking, lifting heavy things

    Favorite Primal food: Chichen breast marinated in coconut milk with curry, curcuma, coriander... and pepper bells

    Best part about being Primal: I feel great and I don't find it difficult to stick to primal food, it's delicious, everything has more taste.

    Worst part about being Primal: At the moment, I don't know. No more tiramisu maybe ... trying to convince people that fat is not evil. Bacon <3

    I'm really motivated and I already see/feel the changes so it helps me stay on this path.
    Thank you for the welcome
