    Congratulations for keeping with PB. My best friend against cravings has been the introduction of saturated fats. Cook your morning omelette with coconut oil (a good teaspoon). That would help I think. Good luck!

      I second what murat said, when you get the crazy cravings, just have something with good fats. A nice piece of meat or something sauted in coconut oil... You'll be pleasantly surprised. Oddly, I've found that nuts don't have the same effect

        If only I didn't forget to post yesterday! It might have helped out. yesterday was an utter defeat. My eating habits went haywire . Now i'm back on track


        day 9:

        B: omelete

        L: Burger (no bun) and salad

        D: left over burger meat and PIZZA (curses!)

        S: a bit of ice cream


        exercise: break day


        I think I'm too strict with my diet so my body retaliates with these cravings. I'll try to ease in a bit.


        Day 10:


        Food:

        S:almonds

        L:Spinach and onion omelet (my favorite food!)

        S: pine nuts

        S: some dark chocolate and smoked salmon

        D: Meatloaf (primal recipe)


        exercise:

        Rock climbed for 3 hours


        today was much better. Good idea with the nuts. I ate a bunch and cravings are much easier to deal with!

        Day 10:

          Day 11:


          Food:

          B: spinach omelet

          L: almonds and pine nuts

          D: Another spinach omelet


          Exercise: being lazy (i.e. nothing)


          Musing:

          I'm starting to lose motivation. I lack the luster I had in the beginning of the challenge. Mentally, it's tough. I'm beginning to feel drained. I'm being overwelmed with all the other stuff I have to do. Also, I think it has to do with the novelty/originality of the diet. I think I might be getting bored with it. Regardless, I need to stay strong and have more discipline. It's not about being flashy...it's about making a commitment and changing it slowly and steadily.


          I'm going to make a better effort with sleep. I thought i could run on only 7 hours, but I guess not with all the exercising and dieting I've been doing. My goal for the next week is to sleep 9 hours a day. Hopefully, this will leave me with more energy! keep on keeping on...
