  • Primal Challenge Journal - ericbisme



    Hi all,


    I have been following MDA and being relatively primal since Oct 2008. Following a summer of about 2000 miles of cycling and eating like an endurance athlete. I wasn't seeing the results I wanted (aside from getting pretty good at cycling) and started reading a lot more about nutrition.


    So far I like it, but I've been getting a little off track lately so I'll be refocusing through the next 30 days. You can see by my day one that I need a bit of focus.


    Day 1 - 20090803


    Exercise:

    * Cycling to gym and work, ~7mi low intensity

    * Weightlifting - squats, rows, push press, dynamic lunges


    Food: (some slacking going on here)

    B - 4eggs fried in lard, tomato

    S - Whey protein post lifting

    L - hummus, tabbouleh, tahini, pita, beef/lamb (gyro)

    D - steak, cooked in same lard as breakfast, 2 carrots, bell pepper.


    egregious non-primal slacking: breaded fried chicken that a friend brought. 3 beers :-)


    FitDay:

    2,259cal, 136.8 net carbs

    F 36%

    I've had better days for sure.


    Improve:

    *This is low on protein especially for a lifting day. Usually this is not a problem for me.

    * fewer low quality carbs, I'm also usually better on this note as well. Starting off the challenge on the wrong foot at least makes it easy to improve ;-)

      This was a better day food wise and not bad exercise wise. This is more typical of my days and hopefully I can keep it up


      *there is some repeat info, because I didn't realize there was a time limit on going back and editing posts.
