New to Paleo...Any Young Paleos in San Francisco / SF Bay Area?

Commented on April 15, 2014
Created November 02, 2012 at 4:58 PM

Hey There,

So seems hard to find other Paleo minded people without knowing beforehand. I am a 24 year old male, live and work in SF, enjoy lots of exercise (gym, hiking, running, nature, etc) and am very social.

The problem? "Social" to most of my friends means going out and drinking a bunch and eating crappy food. I would love to meet some similar people who would rather sleep early Friday night to get a fun morning/afternoon adventure in Sat than get hammered Friday night and sleep in Saturday.

I checked out some meetup sites but tends to be "Paleo Dieting" groups or "Paleo Parents". Anyone know ways to meet cool young healthy people in SF who would be interesting in connecting?? I don't care about being strictly Paleo, just some health/nutrition/exercise minded people.

Thanks

I feel for you! I have the same issue where I live (even before going Paleo, it's just hard to find people around here who want to be healthy and active - it's either the bar type or the real serious athletes who refuse to take a bike ride for fun instead of for training).

Ya I get this, but it would just be nice to at least talk to another "Paleo" person rather than all of it coming from this site and research ha. I still have fun with my friends and all that jazz

Maybe in the future there'll be more paleo adepts and maybe even a paleorestaurant!

I'm in the Bay Area (SF), in my 20s, and paleo! It would be so nice to meet other people living this lifestyle.

I know I'm like a year late here, but I just moved back from Oregon and would LOVE to meet some homies with a similar lifestyle to my own (Paleo, CrossFit, SLEEP!) I'm in El Cerrito, just outside Berkeley.

There's a ton of paleo activity in the SF bay area. You might want to check out some of the meetup groups (I haven't been to any of these personally...)

Hey Desmond! I'm an early 20s female who follows a Paleo lifestyle. I live in SF and am trying to find like-minded people to spend time with. If you're still interested in growing your friends group, let me know!

I'm going on 44, some consider that young but I don't from my perspective! If you are looking for a play daddy/activity partner or if you like metal let me know! I was born in SF so I know the City inside and out. Joking aside if you have need of any refs let me know.

Haha I feel ya. I go to college in this area and it's definitely hard being social with my friends who definitely are the total antithesis of paleo so unfortunately they pull me down and off track sometimes :/ I guess for me I keep telling myself that it'll get better when I'm out of the college scene...but maybe not? Anyways I know my local lululemon yoga store here plus the one back home in the south bay holds lots of social gatherings like run clubs and free yoga and lots of young healthy people go there. I know SF has a store but I'm not sure if they have these things, worth checking out maybe :)

yes, i live in sf. but frankly you just need to learn how to hang out with ppl and still eat/drink your own way without feeling weird or peer pressured. i drink rum and fruit juices on the weekends and i'm perfectly fine. but i ONLY COOK FOR MYSELF, every day, 100% of the time. there's a lot of paleo nonsense abound, and you need to sort through it.

if you want to do so-called "paleo" activities, there's the local climbing groups (indoor/outdoor) and the bay area has so many crossfit gyms who suck on paleo's nut, you can easily be swaddled in their bosom if you desire. there's just tons of non-food-religion outdoor clubs too.

if you want to sleep early on friday and go adventuring on saturday morning, go figure out how to do it, there's plenty of ppl (paleo and non-paleo) who do that all the time.

Hey dude, I'm 26 & from Miami and I know exactly what you mean. I will be moving to SF in February and would love to meet some like minded individuals. I'm actually moving the bay to be around nature, organic eating, and martial arts/fitness. So I'm down for all that you mentioned.
