What got you initially interested in the Paleo or Primal?

I'm drawn to the Primal Blueprint/Paleo lifestyle because I'm very passionate about optimizing on my own personal health. After reading up on the Paleo lifestyle and being an 80-20er (I include dairy in my diet) for about four months now, I really believe it's the optimal lifestyle for me.

What are your personal goals?

Eventually I would like to experience being 100% Paleo. I want to be a part/involved in Chicago's Paleo Community. After being an Resident Advisor at my school for the past two years I've been able to better understand the importance of the community experience. Also, my school mainly consists of hardcore vegetarians and vegans (who are ironically excessive smokers). It's difficult having a decent conversation about my lifestyle when other students think I've completely lost my "noodle" (pun intended, lol). I'm looking to gain 20 lbs of lean muscle mass by December 2011. Above anything else I just want to befriend and connect with fellow Paleo lifestyle advocates!
