Primal / Paleo -- September 2011
Primal Paleo who is in? I certainly am ...

Tazzie 09-06-2011 09:44 PM

I started working on eating Paleo (cavewoman) several weeks ago, when I was trying to treat severe inflammation, it has helped quite a lot with that, plus I have at least stopped gaining weight, and lost a few pounds. I have not been perfect with it (vacations pffftttt) but i am trying, also in the process of trying to decide just how much my body can tolerate in the way of carbs....I will be really happy if I can lose a pound or 2 a month--my body has become quite weight loss resistant....sigh...

Ilene 09-06-2011 09:51 PM

My body is "weightloss resistant" too... it is just so difficult...but I am trying...

Tomorrow I am really going to go low carb... I will post my food... Maybe we can all do that and help each other...

Tazzie 09-06-2011 09:56 PM

not a bad idea, sometimes it helps to see it in writing...

Tazzie 09-07-2011 08:54 PM

so today I ate:

small steak and 2 eggs

pork chop and a huge salad (vinegar/oil dressing)

zucchini casserole I was not particularly happy about as it had bread crumbs and just a bit of egg as protein (I didn't cook) it was tasty but not enough protein

v8 juice and some nuts as a snack

Ilene 09-07-2011 09:30 PM

Today I had:

m1...ham slices and a peach
m3...chicken and coleslaw with olive oil dressing
m4...pork chop and brocoli drizzle olive oil

I fell of the wagon with 4 squares of plain chocolate in the afternoon *sigh*

1,025 cals .... 48.3 fat .... 104.7 carbs .... 56.4 protein .... protein is way too low and carbs too high... I will do better tomorrow without the chocolate :yes: ...

I did have a very good workout tonight though :strong:

your calories are pretty low too, 1200 is minimum, try substituting one of the fruits with some roasted unsalted nuts/seeds or maybe some cheese if you can do dairy....

Ilene 09-07-2011 10:22 PM

My calories are low today, don't know why and I'm not that hungry so I'm not too worried about it... Yesterday I had 1500 or more, I can't really remember...but they are usually higher...

m1... ham slices
m2... whey protein powder and an orange
m3... broccoli and pork chop

I feel good so far with my food...

Tazzie 09-08-2011 08:56 PM

Brown, the first thing that happened when I went paleo is that I stopped having cravings, and my hunger was reduced by quite a lot, it makes a huge difference to eat as much fresh, whole food as you can, cutting out gluten can really help tons.....

Tazzie 09-08-2011 08:57 PM

Cheese omlette

wings--blew it on the veg here usually i have a big salad

salmon and cauliflower

slice of watermelon :)

The less processed carbs I eat the less I crave...

Tazzie 09-09-2011 07:06 PM

ok today I had

small steak and 2 eggs/ slice of watermelon

chicken soup (no carbs just chicken and broth)

some nuts on break

salad steak and mashed potatoes (went to dinner with my sweetie) I don't feel bad about eating a reasonable serving of potatoes but everything tasted kind of salty and i am sure I will pay for that :P
