  • Over 50%?

    Man, I never got that high. I hear 50% is easily doable, but then you're not listening to your body at that point.

    Mark usually will advocate for listening to your body. I personally got my best results eating some rice *gasp.*

    • I am repeating this mantra today: I will not stress about this until I am well. I am going to IF lunch today (I will be coming in way under my target again but do not see another option at this point). My stomach hurts and I feel yucky (damn antibiotics- feels like a warzone going on inside).

      When it comes to my fat.. I am projecting about 36% or @ 580c from fat. so even when I am over this amount.. I do not think I go OVER 50%.

      • Well.. IF'd yesterday lunch, felt better at dinner so had some rubbed ribs.. YUM This morning, still feeling "full"/kinda ucky tummy so thought I would IF breakfast (except for coffee with cream- so not a true IF then) but taking meds and vitamins upset the tummy more- ate a banana to settle the stomach. Unbelievable how fast it worked. It use to be a piece of bread/toast to settle a tummy- a banana works well too FYI.

        L today: IF
        D: TBD (not counting on anything.. going to wait and see how I feel)

        I am still taking probiotics.. still following the SPEED program (just IFing more/as needed). I measure on Sunday. I have not weighed myself again, but will probably on Sunday as well.

        Energy is good!! Sleep was better last night. I woke up at 4am instead of 5am but hey.. I can handle an hour off. Its 3+ hours that drag my butt down!

        • Well the first thing I would say is, scrap plans until you are well!!! I would work to stay primal because I think it is the best way to get healed up. But no other restrictions on yourself, eat when you feel able and what ever feels good on the belly, the body is an amazing machine, it knows, and when you are sick it is super obvious.

          So, when you are ready to jump back into SPEED (after antibiotics are out of your system!)....as to the fat percentage, I must have done the math wrong but I thought you were going over 50%. I actually shoot for 50%, less than that and I get hungry. My aims are 50% fat, about 15% to 20% carb (straight carb here not net), and 40% to 45% protein (up to 180g) and about 1,700 calories-these are the figures from the days I started losing weight, so I am going with what works!

          • Took the last of the antibiotics today!! How long until its all out of my system??

            YEsterday's food:

            B: 1 c yogurt
            L: 2 slices bacon and a grapefruit
            D: (was finally feeling a little better) hamburger patty with bleu cheese but I did have some onion rings (ok darn-it I haven't eaten in how long?? I was finally ready to eat so I did... moving on.)

            Today's food:
            B: 1 c yogurt, 3 slices of bacon and a grapefruit, coffee with 1/2 n 1/2
            L: Salmon patties with avacado (going to try and make an acacodo ancho for it)
            D: chicken livers wrapped in bacon with some vegetable :P

            Ok.. I found my lipid profile from last year that got me thinking about what it might be now considering I have changed the way I eat, the way I move, the way I think AND since then have lost almost 30 pounds.

            so 2010 results were: (non-fasting)

            **total cholesterol 257 normal range 140-200
            DHDL 48 normal 30-85
            **TRIG 202 normal 30-150
            VLDL 40.4 normal 0-50
            **LDL 169 normal 0-130
            COR-risk 5.4 normal 4.2-7

            I am not sure how long it takes to make a difference with your numbers. I have been primal since the 1st of August but it seems its only been since the 1st of October I REALLY know and understand what I am doing.

            p.s. oh crap.. forgot to weigh myself this morning. I will tomorrow as I am curious again. I will measure today though.

            • you got your spunky back you must be feeling better. I would keep up with the yogurt for a week at least to let the antibiotics out of the system, I have no idea how long they stay.

              I have a doc appt. on Monday, and am curious to see what my blood test looks like. I went primal after my hospital stay so I can use those numbers to compare. Although I am not sure they did a cholesterol make up.

              • well.. have the big C going on and I think thats why I "feel full" and the scale eeked up. Taking magnesium and probiotics big time now. Hope this clears it up and those pounds lost are reflected once again. Of course I am not eating a lot of veggies (ugh.. so not feeling it with salads etc.) This happens every fall/winter- I go on a salad hiatus because it starts to nauseate me. I need to find some veggies that are low carb (so probably raw) to substitute so I can get some fiber.

                today's food:
                B: protein shake with coconut milk, orange and 1 T of RAW green powder stuff (the green powder not bad in the shake- gags me with just water)
                L: homemade chicken salad, 3 oz whole milk mozz. cheese
                D: bacon wrapped hamburger steak, salad and green beans

                Today I need to push the water to help with the C as well. Ugh.. off to my meeting..

                • which green powder stuff did you get? Seems like stews or soups would be a great substitute for your summer salads. you could probably do variations of this one using different meats and veggies...Primal Italian Veal Stew Cosmopolitan Primal Girl sounds yummy to me, I am looking for one I can do in the crock pot though.

                    • I bought the Garden of Life, perfect food RAW

                      http://www.gardenoflife.com/Products...6/Default.aspx

                      It looked like what the SPEED guys talked about.

                      I will look into some soups and stews, although I am not really a soup girl (though I am a bisque girl!!). I just need to put my big girl panties on and get over it. LOL

                      • I don't care for soups either, but yep bisques totally love em! I tend to just roast my veggies. Put 2 kinds on a greased cookie sheet and bake at about 425 till they start to caramelize on the bottom. Works great with frozen ones too, usually use broccoli or cauliflower or asparagus or brussell sprouts. Although with brussell sprouts they taste best if you toss them in oil and salt and pepper first then make sure the oven is pre-heated, and it doesn't hurt to put the cookie sheet in the oven as it is preheating.

                          • Well today is conferences which means I will be at school until 7:30pm. I hate late nights because I miss my daughter (she has to be at the sitter from after school until I can pick her up- thats a long day for us both). I got an email from Matt checking up on my progress. I filled him in that I am finally off antibiotics and steroids and that I had lost but gained some back, probably because of constipation. Tried to get on the scale this morning and I think the battery is dead soooooo... when I get some time (HAHA) I will have to get a battery and get that back. I measured on Sunday.. again.. did I measure in the same spots?? WHO THE HELL KNOWS?! Where it looks like I lost like an inch (?!) then others I lost nada.. pshhh.. it gets me spinning I tell you!

                            Since I am at school all day I have planned my food. The school provides a dinner and tonight on the menu is mexican (homemade tortillas, stuff for burritos, tacos etc. and YOU KNOW a WIDE ASSORTMENT of DESERTS!) My stance is "There are pirates in there.. so I brought my own food.

                            B: protein shake with coconut milk, orange and greens
                            L: Homemade chicken salad, 3 oz whole milk mozzarella
                            D: ham steak, 1 c cottage cheese

                            • I am going to see if I can find the BioChem Greens and Whey. It looks like you kill 2 birds with one stone on that one and it is sweetened with Stevia as a bonus. The company web site says it is available at Whole Foods so I will check it out, then if it is worth it may end up looking for an online source, assuming that would be cheaper. It looks like a way to get DS to get some extra protein as well as some greens, I'll try to talk him into it as a snack. I will let you know how it goes.

                                At the health food store I saw some greens and whey (can't remember the brand) but it had soy. You might make sure before you buy.
