Hello! My name is Rachel, and I have been primal since February ’10. I have fought with my weight all my life. I was a very chubby kid and have been on pretty much any diet you can name. I used conventional wisdom/calorie restriction/chronic cardio to shed about 35 lbs but still I had many digestive issues, headaches, my hair falling out, etc. Now all those things are in the past and I have been free from chronic stomach pains and headaches for months. I feel lean everyday, and I am enjoying eating REAL food without having to count calories or feel like Im being restricted.
So a bit about my life. I live in San Diego and I have the privilege of living by the beach, which is amazing for primal living. I have an amazing fiance who is also on the Primal bandwagon and 3 dogs who we share our lives with (Recon, our Coy-dog pictured with me above). . I studied Judo for 9 years and currently hold a 2nd degree black belt, although I have taken a break from martial arts due to lack of time, id love to get back into it soon. I love hiking, mountain biking, adventure racing, swimming, exploring, pretty much anything outside, which will all be pictured here as much as I can. Thanks all for reading.
