What got you interested in the Primal/Paleo lifestyle (either dietary, excercise, or both)?

While living in Korea for a while I got inspired by the idea that "food is medicine." I started reading about health and nutrition, and the paleo/primal evolutionary perspective just made the most sense.

How long have you been interested in these topics?

I've been eating paleo and lifting heavy things regularly since 2008.

What are your fitness/exercise interests? Dietary interests?

I love to experiment with food and optimize my meals for maximum health. Right now I am really into body-weight exercises and parkour-type skills.

What would you like to see us do at meetups?

Farm visits, meat shares, paleo speakers, restaurant trips, group workouts, hangouts to get together with like minded people.

What is the next step you would like to take to live more primally?

Spread the word on the primal lifestyle and create a community through this group where people get to see each other frequently at events and get to know each other.


I've been eating paleo and experimenting with the primal lifestyle since 2008. I know there are others in Des Moines interested in ancestral health. I hope to build a community of like-minded folks to support each other and make new friends.
