  1. My name is Melissa "LessofMimi" Fritcher, and living Primally, to me, means living on the spectrum of biologically-adequate to -optimal, through dietary and lifestyle choices. It means giving our bodies the best advantage for reaching a ripe old age having lived fully and well. It means having a respect for the land, the animals, and the people who raise the animals and foods properly. It means living intelligently and instinctively. It means living. Optimally, if you are lucky & put the work in.

  2. My name is Sean Booth and what living primally means to me is clearing my body of all the bad it has built up over the years and returning it to a clean slate. Now I can just listen to what it tells me it needs without worrying about weight or nutrients or whether I'm just addicted to sugar or gluten.

  3. Living Primally means to me, being able to accept and "roll wIth" whatever comes my way, wherever I live in the world. No mattress, no problem. Meat? Yew haw. Veggies? Yum. Let's get stuck in. I just turned 50, it's life 2.0

  4. Hey there! I'm so excited for this opportunity; thanks for all you do in the Paleosphere! My name is Melissa Harrison, and to me living primally is getting back to basics. Not only buying and eating real, local foods, but allowing the nutrients from those foods restore the natural balance in my body. I am continually tweaking here and there in order to reach optimum health (it's all about the journey!), but I'm feeling better than I ever did on a conventional diet/lifestyle. It's amazing to have an outlet like this with such healthy, passionate, and supportive people...and it has allowed me to realize I want to help others succeed in living primally by pursuing a career in nutrition!

  7. My name is Megan Ward. I've liked their Facebook page. To me living primally means living as close as I can to what nature intended. I know that we invented electricity and I don't claim to want to live without that, but I think nature intended us to eat whole foods from our surrounding areas. I try to listen to my body and give it what it needs.

  8. Hi, my name is Kris Weimer. Primal living means getting back to basics and getting my family healthy!

Thanks for your informative website!

  10. To me, living primally is all about being in tune with the natural processes of your body. By putting in the right foods and doing the right activities you can unlock the massive potential of our naturally engineered species. You become one with your body, the environment and even the universe as we were meant to be!

  11. Hi! I'm Melissa Cherney and to me, living primally means that I eat NO processed or unhealthy foods, be as active as I possibly can AND get myself off of all non-necessary medications. The first two items have been significant in making the third item happen, and I've never felt better!

  15. My name Kat K. and living primally means eating foods in as close to their natural state as possible, choosing sustainable agriculture and responsibly raised animals and avoiding unnecessary pharmaceuticals. It means cooking at home. It means avoiding processed foods. My hard earned money doesn't support the corporations that are poisoning the food supply. I won't be fat and drugged like the rest of the sheeple.

  16. I'm Andie German. Living primally means working with nature instead of against it. It means respecting what you're given and teaching others to do the same. We have a wonderful place in the primal world, and we can live wonderful lives because of it.

  17. Hi! My name is Jenni Eisenberg. To me, living primally means returning to eating and exercising as our bodies were meant to...without all the artificial foods and artificial exercises. I've quit worrying about the number on the scale and remain focused on foods that my body was designed to eat! As far as exercise, I'm not out there chasing down my food, but I exercise outside and I'm into lifting heavy things :-)

  22. My name is Alexandra and to me living primal is cutting out all of these toxins that is destroying my body and ridding myself of the man-made diseases. It's getting out in the sunlight and burning energy, and stocking up on endorphins. It's pushing my body to it's full potnetial so that I can get the most out of life!

  23. Living primal (to me) means living in line with what my genes want. My genes what me at my best in all aspects, and that is what I am working for in nutrition, physical exertion, and mental stimulation.

  24. Hi! My name is Deb, and tome living primally means getting my body to do and to consume what it was MEANT to do and consume in the first place. For my family first and foremost this means good food, and we haven't been healthier or felt better than when we began eating this way about a year ago. It means looking a little harder for really GOOD food, especially meats, and finding that there are local organic farms you didn't even know about who raise animals sustainably and responsibly, and who often bring the meat to the local farmer's market for you, or learning about online sources (we already "like" US Wellness and get their newsletter and LOVE their sales!). It also means more physical activity, which can be hard to find time for when the school schedules for the kids run them ragged, but we're more active than we were a year ago too, so we're getting there! The garden is growing, my kids ask about food ingredients all the time ("Mom, is this bacon nitrate-free?"), and we really have more fun and more of it outside too!

  25. I'm both a fan and a subscriber. Living primally means understanding for the first time ever what foods and what activities are actually good for me and WHY. Thanks for the great giveaway! —Julie

  28. My name is Marielle Elise (on facebook) and living primally means connecting with nature, doing only what I was meant to, and respecting the animals who provide nourishment and health to my body. It means doing doing heavy work and Grok Squats and standing up while on the computer. It means banning harmful chemicals, not being so hung up about shaving, and finding natural solutions to everyday problems. It means more grilling, more cast-iron, and more organ meats. It means less sugar, less "unwhole" foods, less hunger and less illness. It means feeling at one with my biology, and not having to pretend that whole grains taste good.

  34. My name is Danielle O'Neill and living primally means to me... living the best way I know how. Constantly learning and listening to my body... For myself, my husband, my family, my future children. To be a positive, pure influence on those around me. To live life in the simplest way possible. To rely on my DNA and the lessons of those before me to have a better understanding of our place on the earth. Being primal is all encompassing and I am so greatful to have been shown this light. :) Cheers to you all!

  35. Living primally to me is about eating clean, whole foods and working your body to make it the best it can be.

    It's listening to what your body is telling you.

    In learning to pay attention to how I feel after eating or working out, I have also learned that my body will tell me what it needs. I will crave a certain food (which is why I shop on a daily basis and don't buy a weeks worth of groceries at a time) when my body needs it. I eat when I'm hungry and stop when I'm full. I don't eat just because it's "that time of day." I will get a yearning to do a particular workout, so I know that is what my body is needing. I try to push myself when working out, but if my body is telling me "no" then I ease up and do what I know I can do.

  36. My name is Megan Doak and living primally essentially means eating the way I've been designed to eat for hundreds of thousands of years-not just the last 10,000. it just goes to show what kind of system we live in that going 'paleo' or 'caveman' are terms for a way of living that has lasted far longer than any trend. It's been the most effective method for clearing my skin (which is why I originally set out to go paleo) as well as having been an enriching, life changing experience in which I get to help anyone who approaches me with a health problem.

  37. My name is Steve Konsdorf and what living primal means is easy - health. My family and I went primal this year and in the first year we saw results. My wife and I are at our high school graduation weight, our fitness levels are the best they have ever been, my two girls are off processed junk and have not been sick at all this winter. No one in the family got a flu shot and as friends and neighbors went down with the flu the 4 of us just kept moving along like nothing happen. Love this lifestyle!

  54. Living primarily is something we do as a family. We eat natural foods, we are outside as often as possible and we do things to improve the quality of our environment. We work out often and discuss with our kids why eating real food is important. The idea of living primally is one of the biggest values my husband and I want to instill in our kids.

  55. Hi, my name is Lindsey. I have already liked US Wellness meats on Facebook and subscribed to their newsletter months ago.
    To me living primal means taking the responsibility to get healthy into your own hands and no longer having the option to blame genetics, lack of time, money, or sleep. The power is in you and being Primal means you have become strong enough to say no to all the poisons in your life.

  75. Yay giveaways! To me, living primally means STARTING A NEW LIFE! Changing my ways of eating has given me such a change in energy levels, it's been nothing short of incredible. I am now kicking butt and taking names! This new lifestyle has inspired me to go back to school to get my Masters in Nutrition to become a certified RD. I think that the more "government regulated jobs" like RD's could really use more of us, whole-foods-whole-living cheerleaders out there. I hope to make a really positive impact on other's lives the way that this lifestyle change has impacted me!

  89. Hey there, I'm Reid Bailey. And as a two-month new convert to Paleo, to me it's about finally figure out what I should have been doing all along. Eating good, fresh food that actually tastes good, and moving in ways that actually equate to functioning better and not just unlimited reps.

  90. Living Primally - Lost 25, 30 to go. Doing situps, pushups and squats. Eating real food - all of the time - not just when I get psyched for it.

    Oh - and tuning out all the nonsense advice from the media, friends and family! And then having them tell me - 4 months later when they read about it in the tabloids - that sugar is the new problem!!!!!!!!!!

    Sometimes you have to find a new tribe!

  91. Primal eating has changed me. I started with Fibromyalgia, High Blood Pressure, excess weight, foggy brain, trouble falling and staying asleep, upset stomach, digestion issues, and lethargy only to name a few...All these symptoms have disappeared! I feel years younger and ready to take on almost anything. I am exercising, eating right, and feel better than I have since I was a kid! I tell all my friends, and even strangers how this new way of eating has changed me. :-) I love it!

  95. Hi, my name is Beverly and I've been living a paleo lifestyle since October 2011. The changes I've had since starting are amazing, I'm losing weight, my blood sugar is now normal, stomach issues are gone, arthritis pain is much reduced, more flexibility, muscle, mental clarity, etc. I've done a lot of reading in my last job working in an alternative doctor's office, after she retired and closed the office I decided to do something about my health and have been buying grassfed, organic, pastured, etc which isn't easy since I'm still on unemployment! I'm already a customer and fan of US Wellness Meats on facebook and get their newsletter in my email. Thanks for having this great giveaway, I hope I win!!

  96. Living "primally" to me means eating a balanced diet of a variety of meats, vegetables, and fruits. Avoiding processed foods that don't occur naturally in nature, and exercising regularly.

  97. Living Primal is Living Simply. Sure, there is still the business (and busyness) of modern life, but I try to treat my mind and body in a "back to basics" way: sleep, move, eat real food.

  98. For us Living Primally means to live life as simply & basically as possible w/o deprivation. That includes fresh meat, veggies, herbs and fruit. We also like to keep in mind that pursuit of perfection is a terrible waste of precious time.

  101. Greetings Fitness in an Evolutionary Direction, my name is Faith Renee Moffatt. Thank you for this opportunity! Living primally for my family is eating foods that do contain pesticides and artificial fertilizers that harm Our Earth.

  102. Hi FED,
    I'm Jake Ramsey, a freshmen at Purdue University. Living primal to me means rejecting the myths that create disease and suffering. It means bubbling energy and not getting sick when everyone else in the dormitory has the flu. It means eating the fat (yum)!

    It means using food as delicious medicine, instead of taking pills to treat symptoms of eating bad food!!!!

    Primal is the way I'm going to live my (hopefully) long life.

  110. Hi, FED. I've Liked US Wellness Meats on FB. My name is Elin Duke Potter. Living primally means that I know and can identify every ingredient of every bite of food I eat. Franken-foods with their unpronounceable this and 15-syllable that are bringing our species to its knees. As a species, we are slowly poisoning ourselves. I am but one person, but my change to a primal way of eating follows those who have gone before me. I add my "voice" in protest to big business pushing chemicals at me telling me they're safe. When enough people protest by not buying their chemicals, big business will either have to change or "die."

I Also make my own lacto fermented foods the traditional way our ancestors preserved foods, have started my own organic garden in my backyard,Learned allot from the Weston A Price Foundation, and Paleo websites, I now soak all nuts & grains and have only been doing this for four months and notice a huge difference in my activity level and over all health.We all have to start somewhere, Iam 55 and a half years young, if I can do it, anyone can.

  133. Howdy, I believe living Primally entails consuming foods rich in nutrients (including the myriads of micronutrients scientists have yet to identify), engaging in targeted exercise, and avoiding stress.

  139. Hi my name is Michelle Lass - For me , living primally means that my grandmother wasn't wrong, growing up in Virginia, watching her "catch" a chicken for Sunday dinner, gathering eggs, collecting all the food scraps to feed the chickens, not wasting, using lard, pork fat back, using the summer to grow and "put up" our vegetables to last the winter, getting beef and raw milk from local farmer. (Grain? what grain? only pastured) Picking out a hog for slaughter, I could go on you get the picture.

  149. Living primally for me means living up to the expectations my body has for my personal choices in life, and thus choosing to live as healthy and in tune with everything as nature intended. It means giving my body the right fuel and nutrition it needs to work up to it's fullest potential as well as living the life I was meant to. To me it's more than just physical but spiritual too; learning everyday new things and learning to accept myself for who I am and what I am capable of.

  157. I liked them on FB! Primal living to me is being able to nourish myself without food having a hold on me - it's freedom on so many levels! Plus, since Primal eating is more of an 80/20 approach, it's easier for me to mesh into this modern world (family parties, etc...). It makes me realize what foods are destructive and what foods are nourishing - there's so much confusion in this day of chemically processed anti-nutrients marketed as health food.

  162. Living primal means breaking free from the conventional wisdom that treats the body like an inherently deficient and broken machine that needs treated with pills and surgeries and modern processed foods. Living primal means reclaiming an epistemology about health that starts with an appreciation of the amazing design of the human body. Whether the human body was designed by God, by evolution, or by God through evolution, it is nevertheless an amazing biological machine that will grow, heal, strengthen, and thrive if we stop feeding it poison." Just eat real food" and just do real movements. Grok on ya'll.

  176. Hiya....Sara Dechance here...hubby calls me Paleo Piggy though... Our family lives primally by being aware of what we eat and how we live. We try to have as minimal an impact on the ecosystem as possible. There are times when we have to concede and go against what we think is best for the planet, but we are at least conscious of it and acknowledge there should be a better way.

    My kids and I have a bit of a game to hunt and gather our food. Most of the time we have to do the grocery store thing, but we split up as a tribe might to forage for good veggies and if we can find it, grass fed meats. We are fortunate to have many farmers markets on our area and when we can, we go primal hunting there.

    Thanks for the contest!!

  177. My name is Jodi Hudgens. Living Primally has been quite the adventure for my family and I. To me, it means eating right and staying active for optimal emotional, physical, and cognitive health. Through this journey, I was able to rid myself of having to depend on asthma medications as well as anti-depressants and anxiety medicine. Relying on these medications most of my life made me feel like I would never live a normal life. When I learned about the primal way of life, I was a little skiddish to be honest. But before I knew it, I was feeling great! I had an entire new outlook on life and no longer was I looking at what I COULDN'T eat. I was looking at what I COULD eat. I now run the facebook page. Paleo for the Picky. I am so passionate about living this way and love sharing the journey and helping out others to get on track.

  180. Hi! My name's Kristyn Wosneski and to me, living "Primally" means going back to basics and living the way we should have all these years before everything became so processed, industrialized, and as far away from our core roots as possible.

I'm 42, and despite having MS for 11 years now, I'm probably healthier than 90% of my friends and family because of my "primal living!"

  191. Jeremy Jones - Being primal to me is learning that food is fuel, and putting the highest quality food in your body is as important as putting jet fuel into an airplane. An airplane couldn't function on black tar, just as your body doesn't run very well on chemically processed, industrial foods that most people intake.
    Bring primal is also about reconnecting with yourself, and your family. About getting back to humanities roots instead of the fast paced, no time for anyone but me, lifestyle that most live these days.

  199. Hey there! I'm Keren Chen. I think living primally is to live without the bad habits and negative beliefs that we've picked up over the centuries of civilization. This includes but is not limited to idolizing unnaturally thin or curvy figures, disrespecting the environment and other inhabitants of Earth, being addicted to watching TV and playing video games, and eating processed junk! Thanks for this contest:)

  200. To me, primal living means getting my family of 6 "back to basics". Away from TV, and toward playing in the sunshine. It's about teaching my kids how to cook and eat whole, unprocessed, unscrewed-with food. It's about learning to listen to our bodies, resting when we need to. Whole, stress-free living.
