I think it might be time to jump in with the challenge journal to see how I go.
A bit of background: I'm in the UK, started eating almost primal on 3rd October after reading some information about anti-inflammatory eating. This had been given to me by my personal trainer after we'd noticed that after over a year of doing proper (Grok-type) workouts, my weight hadn't really changed, nor had my body shape, overly much. Time for action.
So, I started by cutting out all wheat and dairy and the weight began to fall off. After just over a week I had lost 10 pounds, whilst eating really well, but not a great deal of fat. Then I found this site somehow and the magic began. By adding lots of fat and more meat to my diet, I began to lose more weight when, according to my previous way of life, I should have been putting weight on, due to my monthly cycle. A miracle! And no period pains or IBS either!
I'm a little concerned that calories-wise I don't seem to be consuming as much as I 'should' but I am not hungry, so I'll try not to get obssessed with that part.
I won't list my foods, but I will list my percentages and also measurements/weight as and when, and also note when I do an IF. If anyone wants to make any comments, please do!
63.2g Fat (54%)
44.8g Carbs (17%)
73.2g Protein (29%)
I managed to cut down the carbs by not having an apple mid-afternoon (I didn't need it) and choosing less carby fruit at breakfast time (with nuts). However, I am finding that all that fruit is really giving me a crash and burn feeling not long afterwards (even though it isn't much fruit) so I may either not have the fruit and just have the nuts, or IF until lunch time. I had A LOT of fish today (salmon and tuna) so at evening meal time, I just picked at some celery, mushrooms, tomatoes, olives and nut butter.
