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

I heard of the group through a friend of mine at work. I live in South City, near Francis park.

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

I fully adopted the lifestyle near the end of 2011(and never going back!). I had been eating pretty low carb for about a year before that but was still afraid of fat during that period and still ate a decent amount of grains. I was referred to MDA by a coworker and what really interested me was the simplicity of it all. No counting calories, no endless hours of cardio, and I suppose I could say that being able to eat some foods I previously had cut out had a little something to do with it as well(bacon!).

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

I'm not very picky and would be up for a wide variety of activities. A few examples would be any sort of sport or competitive activity, anything involving dogs would be great, BBQs or parties, etc.

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

Not being able to eat desserts, sandwiches, pizza, etc was difficult to adapt to at first, but I've learned to cope. I really don't have any serious issues with the lifestyle at this point, never felt better.

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

I would just like to explore the lifestyle a bit more to see what else it has to offer. I'm still a relative newcomer and have a lot more that I need to try out and learn!
