So I've already walked some with baby, and I'm planning on a 2 miler this afternoon. I'm not used to not wanting to eat all the time, my brain chemistry has definitely changed since I started this 2 wks ago.

B: espresso, eggs, protein shake
S: cc and mixed berries
L: goat chz/ asparagus burger (no bun)
D: veggie salad ( I think!)

I'll end up about 1650 calories, I try to do 1650 5 days a week and then on the 2 days I do my major workouts I up it about 2-300.

I've been AWOL over the weekend, but you haven't got rid of me yet!!

I had three non-primal dinners (Friday/Saturday/Sunday) and thought I was handling things okay, then stepped on the scale this morning to see a 5-lb gain. I know it's not fat, but still. FIVE pounds. Back on that primal horse today. Grok probably rode horses, right? Hippo-something-or-other.

SB, we should totally have tea together some time!

Ok, so I'll detail my food so far. Sorry if it is lame to do so, but I am very excited about this. I still haven't finished the book, but if I understand the carbohydrate curve correctly, I'm aiming for between 50 and 100 grams a day. That allows for a TON of veggies and some good servings of fruit. This is so interesting to me. I'm not "munchy", I'm not falling face first into Cheezits or gold fish crackers. I mean, if the only thing I get out of this Primal diet at this time is more veggies and fewer binges, I'll consider that a success. With the 80% rule, I can still incorporate some oats or the odd English muffin.

So today so far:
protein shake, strawberries, walnuts
spinach salad with chicken breast (I had planned hardboiled eggs, but I found a stray leftover chicken breast from Friday night, and thought, heck, why not?), red onions, blue cheese, and ranch dsg (soybean oil in the ranch....alas!)

Totals at this time:
824 kcal
53 g fat
23 g carbs
67 g protein

With the wide carb target range, I'll have plenty of room for some more strawberries and some beans & zucchini in my turkey chile tonight.

Great idea! Let's do it!

My private feeling is that a tin of oily fish goes with most (probably all) F&V. I eat this stuff almost every work day plus a seeded (linseed - aka flax - and sesame) spelt
biscuit (cracker). Cd probably add some dsg but I'm really very happy with a pile of raw veg & occasional fruit. (Big plus is that SO does the veg - for me and the DB's packed lunch.). This is a kissing cousin of Susan's magic salad, I think. And if there are protein rich leftovers, I have them instead of fish.

I lost about a stone (14 lbs) Jan - early March freestyling this kind of food. Never heard of 'primal' until a few weeks ago. Too bad this Sissons character got there first - could have made a mint!

Joking aside, I'm back on my case now pressure of work & extended fam has eased up.

Let the fat continue to melt!

I was thinking that too Silver! For many years the folks here at 3FC have been touting proteins and bathtubs full of greens. It's not all that different.

I continue to be amazed by my lack of hunger.

Another decadent snack ... fried summer sausage.

midwife - very cool! I'm currently working on my core classes and waiting to start clinicals for nursing school at our local community college. I think that eventually I would like to be a cnm...eventually. First things first though.
