I've posted on a few topics, and have had some concerns raised and adressed. I'd like to thank those who have given their experiences and advice. I welcome all comments and suggestions to improve my health! So here goes my story! I'm a 26 y/o female from MI, 5'6 116lbs. A year ago i was probably around 160lbs. I have never in my life been as fit as i am today. I met a Crossfit trainer a year ago who has literally changed my life! So as far as my exercise goes, I typically do Crossfit workouts every other day, and i enjoy running in the AM fasted. I mix my runs up w/ sprints and walking/intervals, and probably only run 2-3x's a week. I engage in other activities, as well. I'm a medical assistant, so my job also keeps me on my feet running. So i think i'm pretty primal in my exercise.
Food and nutrition seem to be where i'm getting myself into trouble! I thought i was doing well, but after saying how much i eat in other posts many have me questioning that! I have been trying to incorporate IF into my lifestyle and really have been enjoying it. Maybe to a fault. So i could use some direction in that area. I considered going vegan in the begining of the year, but my trainer advised me against it! (thank god) So i started out doing a Paleo/Zone diet, w/o red meat. I got terrible food poisoning from Tyson chicken in the spring, and haven't eaten chicken since. So right now my protein sources are all types of fish(wild), tuna, eggs, and nuts. I'm not against eating meat, and i have an amish farm/store near me that i'm trying to get my nerve up to start buying from. I use lots of coconut oil and some sesame oil, avocados, and olives. I rarely eat fruit anymore, mostly berries w/ breakfast sometimes or jicama. I love all vegetables, and would rather eat them over fruit anyways. I've been keeping my carb intake under 50g for over a month now, and can tell when i over do it at certain meals.
I have to get to work, but plan on posting later about the medical issues that i'm dealing w/ right now. I will get my food intake for the day posted as well!
