Hello All,

I was over at Mark's Daily Apple forum. I am so grateful someone posted the link to this forum. Smile I have some questions I will post elsewhere. The introduction thread over there had some questions to answer, so I figured I would just use them here.

Your location: I am located in New Mexico

Age (If you want): a happy and not as healthy as I want to be 54

How Primal are you: Pretty Primal, at least as far as I understand the concept.

Do you consume dairy: Yes, but frugally. I find Greek yogurt a decent snack option. I use heavy cream and sour cream to bump up fat consumption.

Do you drink coffee or tea: Yes, I drink both regularly. I suppose I didn't realize they weren't considered strictly Primal but would be hard pressed to give them up.

Motivator for switching to Primal: a Healthier lifestyle in general, weight loss and more energy in particular. I really need to nail down the concept of healthier living, so I can enjoy life.

Favorite exercise: walking

Favorite Primal food: All of them. I like the concept of not being limited. I suppose if I had to be pinned down, it is a huge creative salad with a variety of veggies and avocados.

Best part about being Primal: Once you get used to eliminating processed foods and grain, the possibilities are endless and I like not having to literally track every calorie.

Worst part about being Primal: Continually saying, "No, thank you" to food offered at social occasions. It just gets tiresome when others are persistent.

Welcome aboard ShelleyM! Nice to see you here.

Nothing non primal about coffee and tea... some don't consider it paleo though

You're the first to introduce using that list of questions, which is great!

I learned yesterday evening and this morning that I could read all your introductions and the last page of your diaries and spend hours trying to get caught up and know each of you. I am abandoning this approach. I will get to know you as we go along, so forgive me in advance.

Welcome Shelly!

Wow trying to read all of our journals?? That is quite the undertaking,
I’m glad you abandoned that idea. Smile

Hi Shelley. I'm so glad you found the link over on MDA. We all still quite reveer Mark and MDA but felt we needed a forum as opposed to the FB page. So, welcome!

There are some really great, helpful members here. Feel free to ask anything - someone usually has the answer.

Happy to have a new tribe member!
