What got you initially interested in the Paleo or Primal?

I read the Paleo Diet a few years ago, but it seemed daunting and I wasn't as focused on overall health. As I near 30, I realized I want to invest in and optimize my health so I can more easily enjoy the rest of my life. Reading It Starts with Food really broke down all the health-related reasons making the switch would be beneficial, and it gelled well with my current mindset. I've come to find the paleo lifestyle suits my creative culinary passion, opens up my world of food, and provides me with energy I haven't experienced since maybe high school.

What are your personal goals?

To help my body function optimally and allow it to become the amazing machine it was meant to be, and to become leaner and stronger.

Dog or cat person?

How long have you been paleo/primal?

No answer yet


I'm 14 days into my first Whole30, and I'm realizing as I near the end that I don't feel like reintroducing the foods I've eliminated because of how much better I feel. I'd love to be part of a network of Paleo/primal-loving folks!
