          It is finally thursday! This has been a very long week for me.


          WED:

          wo: weights 40 min/2 mile walk

          eats:

          2c coffee/1 stevia/2 t heavy cream

          8oz raw milk

          pp

          1 c spinach

          1T coco oil


          Planned on fasting til dinner, but I was starving!

          m2:

          4oz buffalo

          1T coco oil

          8 grape tomatos

          1/4 c pecans


          m3:

          shrimp cakes

          grilled bell pepper

          1T coco oil


          25g carb/90g p/108g f


          Today I fasted breakfast....almost lunchtime and I think bacon and eggs will satisfy me till dinner.

          Also, as I inputted yesterdays meals here, TOO MUCH DAIRY!!! Need to watch it. I actually added the heavy cream so I could get in a bit more fat. I have been trying to lay off the nuts, but I don't want to supplement with too much dairy.

            Hi Amy! I was down-and-out with a nasty flu. Thought I was immune now that I 'never' get sick, but alas, two boughts of the crud in two weeks! I guess I need more sleep :-(


            How was the carnivore day?


            Try to ramp up the fats & meat but limit the veggies and nuts and you won't be so hungry or have cravings. I see a trend in your journal that looks just like what I experience.


            More veggies, more nuts, more fruits = more hunger & more carb cravings. Uggh!


            I'm still trying to get my appetite back. All I've eaten the past 3 days are 3 pieces of primal pizza, a couple bites of pemmican, & 1 protein spinach coconut oil shake. Not enough food or nutrition, but being sick is the pits!


            Happy Thursday!

              Sass: hope you are on the mend! 2 weeks with a cold is no fun. Try to rest up this weekend, and be back full force next week. Healing vibes your way!!


              So I had another great meal. I tried JoyfulAbodes Coconut lime chicken soup: it was very flavorful!!!


              Its 1pm here, and I have fasted from last night. Not super hungry, but may have a little something to get me to dinner.

                          I went to bed with a splitting headache though.....woke up with it too. Was going to fast, but thought I should eat something to see if the headache would go away. Carbs were at 2g for the day, and fat at 80%.

                          So I started my morning off with eggs and meat, and will see how the rest of the day goes. I am off for a walk.....

                            Good luck! Sometimes a fat fast/ carnivore day will result in a headache. When your body dumps fat, toxins get dumped right along with it.


                            Try to eat 'blood-cleansers' like hot spices (cayenne pepper) and cinnamon. These types of things 'whisk' these released toxins off to the appropriate 'disposal' areas so that they are not being redistributed into your blood stream, thus causing you with a headache.


                            Lots of water and hang in there! ;-)

                              Sassa: you are so helpful! BIG THANKS!!


                              Tomorrow will be 1 full month of being primal (with maybe a few minor slip ups). It was a learning experience for sure, and have decided I am going to stick with this for sure!!

                              I will take measurements and weigh myself tomorrow morning to see. I feel lighter and have lost my belly bloat, so I am excited to see what the measurements say.


                              Headache yesterday finally lifted at around 2pm. I had upped my water, and took a power nap.

                              Had a great lifting workout this morning, and me and the hubby are going to restart working out together next week. We will be adding some p90X and misc stuff in the mix. I really enjoy working out with him---I always push myself a bit harder!


                              Off to make some bacon and eggs! YUM!!!

                                ???? Sassa:

                                do you always keep your carbs low. My carbs on average lately have been less than 30g. Thats okay right?

                                Also, I feel like my breath is yuck....any remedies?? Does that mean I am in ketosis. I also have smelly pee.
