My Journey


About Me – Hi, my name is Judy, I’m a mom of two teens (16 and 18) and I’ve been married for over 21 years to a Primal guy. I live in Calgary, Alberta Canada, home of the Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth and an hour’s drive to the Rocky Mountains. I’ve been interested in nutrition and fitness for over 25 years. I’m not a so-called expert, I don’t have a degree in medicine or nutrition, I simply have had a love and a passion for nutrition and fitness for over 25 years. I’ve always had good health and fortunately I have never struggled with extreme weight issues, just a nagging 10 – 20 extra pounds (5’3″ and 132 lbs. at the peak). However, when I entered my forties I noticed things were changing; gaining weight on the abdomen (new for me), sleep disturbances (overheating due to menopause?), very dry skin and hair, aches in feet, knees, ankles, deteriorating eyesight and lack of energy. I figured this was just part of the aging process and that I would simply have to get used to it – that was until I discovered Mark’s Daily Apple (I was a skeptic). About one year ago I threw conventional wisdom (CW) out and started down the Primal Lifestyle road (I’m a convert).

Over the past year I’ve absorbed a significant amount of information and have experienced some incredible physical benefits, including;

  • a 15 pound weight loss (5′ 3″ 113.5 lbs.)
  • a significant reduction in cellulite
  • healthier skin and hair
  • improved restful sleep
  • my pre-menopausal symptoms have disappeared
  • I have more energy
  • I’m much leaner and have more muscle definition (aiming for a six-pack)
  • seasonal allergies are much less severe

This Blog is my journal of discovery and sharing as I continue to re-evolve into a predominantly Primal Lifestyle. The PurePrimal Blog will have a strong focus on issues concerning women and kids and how the Primal Lifestyle can benefit them.

By the way, my husband, Jeff  may occasionally be adding posts to this site – so watch for his missives.

Keep Evolving – Judy
