    Beginning weight on 1/1/2011: 195
    Today's weight:190

    Today is day 3 of my cycle and I had absolutely no cramps, back pain, bloating, nothing. Usually I have to take some advil for my cramps on the second day and I can hardly work or concentrate because of the pain. And that is the only time I ever take medication for anything. But now, I feel great. I just hope that my weight will go down once it ends.
    I ate more then usual today though. I kept wanting to eat and didn't feel satisfied, even though I wasn't hungry. I'm not sure why.

      Today was a weird feeling day. Again i just wanted to eat and eat and couldn't feel satisfied. i ended up eating like 3 Tbs of coconut oil. That stuff is so good. It's like ice cream. Someone should make chocolate flavored coconut oil. But it is the end of my period, so I can't wait to see if that had something to do with it. It's weird because I had no pms cravings at all. And I wasn't craving carbs or anything, just wanted to eat.

      So here's what I did eat today:
      B: 4 eggs in butter, 1tbs coconut oil
      S: Avacado
      L: Can of Sardines, 1Tbs coconut oiil, 1 cup broccoli in butter.
      D: No time for dinner. I had acting class right after work.

      So I am officially off of nuts and dairy. Maybe I'm having nut and dairy withdrawal. Those were my crutch convenient go to items.

        So today my period ended and looks like I lost all my period weight. Thats a relief, but I still haven't lost any weight. That's fine, I'm not too worried because I know this is not a crash diet and it will take time, but every day I'm getting closer then the day before.

        So i've been told I need to eat 130g of protein. I don't know how I'm gonna do that. I guess I'll up my eggs to 5 for breakfast tomorrow.

        B: 4 eggs in butter.
        L: 1 avacado, 5oz romaine salad, 2Tbs Ceasar dressing, 1 can salmon.
        D: 80z ground beef, 3 brussel sprouts, 1/2tbp cocnut oil.

          Hi eelnus,
          Sounds like you are doing great so far. Just don't get too caught up in the math. Let your body tell you if it really "needs" 130 grams or not.

            Aw, its always so nice to get encouragement from others. Thanks Paleobird.

            Well I was fooled about my period ending yesterday, it didn't end yesterday, I think it ended today though. That was a long period, but just very light and absolutely no symptoms. So that's fine with me.

            Today I ate alot of fat without protein before working out and it made me nauseas. So I won't be doing that anymore. I went to costco to pick up some macadamia nuts, but they were all out. I was bummed, but instead picked up some artichoke dip, which is what I overate before working out.

            My trainer suggested to me to cheat and have a carbo load day and that I may gain weight the next day but after that the weight will drop fast. Hmmm, don't know. I put up a post about it to see what others might think of that. I'm tempted to give it a try tomorrow and go from eating <20g of carb to 150g from primal food and maybe some dark chocolate and nuts to see what it does. Then I can go for a long hike or walk. Maybe I'll try it. I'll wait to see what people's responses are to the post.

            Today's meals:
            B: 3 eggs, 4oz ground beef
            L: can sardines, 2 cups spinach, 2T artichoke parmesan dip.
            S:3T of artichoke parmesan dip. Its like eating savory ice cream.
            D: 4oz ground beef.

              Today I went for a long walked. I walked 7.09 miles. I didn't feel like I had all that much energy. Walks like these use to be really easy for me, but today I found that there were hills that I didn't even know were hills just a few months ago. I don't think I've adapted yet to ketosis.. After reading all th advices on upping my carbs, I'm going to hold off for at least 6 weeks in.

              Todays Meal:
              B:4 eggs, 2cups spinach, 1tb coconut oil, 3Tb artichoke parm dip, 1/2T butter. (This was a late breakfast at noon.)
              L/D: like 6 servings of macadamia nuts. Who can count?

                I had a weird eating day today. I wanted to save my appetite for the all you can eat King Crab buffet. So i just ate 1T of coconut oil for breakfast. We got to the buffet at around 4, but by then I felt so nauseaus we didn't end up going to the buffet. Instead I grab a quick cobb salad from the deli. It wasn't very good and I couldn't really eat most of it. But I did feel better after. So lesson learned, don't eat fat alone or you get nauseas.
                Oh and I also looked up King Crab and 1 leg has like 20g of protein! Geez and I usually eat like 15 legs. That's like over 300g of protein in 1 sitting. I wonder if that's really bad?

                So my meals today are:
                B: 1T coconut oil
                L:Cobb Salad
                D: 1 can tuna with mayo, 2 boiled eggs.

                  Yay! I lost 10lbs. Although the first 5 was just water weight. It was weight gain from Christmas, so I think it's probably more like 5lbs of fat. But still, sllowly but surely it is coming off.

                  Today I me my friend for lunch at whole foods. I brough my own boiled eggs and avacado and just grabbed the pretossed ceasar salad from the salad bar. I really have no idea how much dressing was on that so I had to guess 4T. This is one of the reasons I don't like to go out to eat anymore. I know its silly and it shouldn't really matter. Like for dinner I had 8oz of ground beef scrambled with 3 eggs and even though I was full and could barely finish, I ate it all anyway because if I didn't, I'd be off in my calculation. I wouldn't know exactly how many eggs I ate or how much beef I ate. Silly, I know.

                  So today's meal:

                  B: Skipped it because I was meeting friend at 12 for lunch.
                  L: 7oz Ceasar salad, 4 boiled eggs, 1 avacado.
                  D: 3 eggs, 8oz ground beef, 2 cups spinach, 1T coconut oil, 1T artichoke dip.

                    I skipped breakfast today because I had that big late dinner last night. So I ate my lunch at 12:30, then I got that post from Mark commanding us to skip our next meal, which would have been dinner. So I tried not to eat dinner. I did have some macadamia nuts though when I got home before working out. Then I boiled some eggs for tomorrow and had to test one, so I ate the yolk and it was soft.

                    B:Skipped
                    L:2 cups spinach, 5T artichoke dip, can sardines
                    D:20 macadamia nuts (probably not even that many, but didn't really count.), egg yolk, avacado.

                      Today I had lunch at Wholefoods again with a coworker so I don't know exact nutritional breakdown. So I gave it my best guess in fitday.

                      B: Skipped - I'm just not hungry for breakfast anymore.
                      L: Raw Kale salad with tahini dressing, some olives, 1tb parm cheese, some nuts and seeds sprinkled on, 1 chicken breast that was in their green curry but with no sauce.
                      D: 1 avocado, 2 boiled eggs, 1 babybel, 1Tb artichoke dip.

                        Today I just wasn't hungry. I'm finding that I don't want to eat as often or as much anymore. I made ground beef on monday and I wasn't too sure if I should eat it today, but I did..only half because I wasn't so sure about it.

                        B: skipped
                        S: macadamia nuts
                        L:4oz ground beef, 3 eggs, spinach, 1T coconut oil.

                        Workout:
                        4 rounds of 40 seconds on 20 seconds rest:
                        Rope lash, jump rope, step, kettlebell swings, planks.
                        This felt way more like cardio...more like sprinting...I didn't like it.

                            I'm so sleepy right now. I ate lunch today after IF since lunch yesterday. I just wasnt hungry. I went to see a show and got really hungry so we went out to eat afterwards at a mexican restaurant. I didn't even notice the chips that the others were munching on. I ordered the steak salad. It was steak strips on a bed of romaine with a boiled egg and avocado. It was very good. I also ordered a class of cabernet. I have been on VLC and have not had any alcohol since I started. Well i took a sip of this wine and it was sooooooo sweet. It tasted like grape juice to me. I have never tasted wine this sweet, so it made me realize that my taste buds have changed and things are way sweeter to me now. I didn't end up drinking the wine because I couldn't.
                            Anyway so i'm not loggin in fitday today. Since I ate out, I have no idea what the macros are and I don't care right now...cuz I'm tired and i'm going to bed.
