How did you find Primal Living STL and what part of St. Louis do you live?

I live in West County. Found this group through a Meetup search.

What got you interested in the Paleo/Primal diet? How long since you adopted this lifestyle

I've been following Paleo principles for about three years. Initially got into it to lose weight; stayed with it because it makes me feel fantastic!

What would you like to see us do at the meetups ?

Share resources for local food, especially humanely raised local meat.

What issues do you have with the paleo/primal lifestyle?

The only issue I have personally had is that Paleo is a bit too restrictive on carbs. I really found I needed more carbs in my diet for thyroid health. I love the work of Chris Kresser - he presents a balanced viewpoint that I find helpful.

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

I need to incorporate more weight work into my exercise.


I got started with Paleo about three years ago. It has helped my health and well being tremendously. I also am passionate about local food and about treating animals humanely and avoid CAFO raised meats as much as possible.
