    My first post, tracking a 20-pound weight loss goal to be achieved by end-of-year.

    I'm female, 32, 5'3", 147 lbs.

    Food Staples

    Cold cuts (pastrami, roast chicken, roast turkey)
    Fermented cream (Wallaby European)
    Strauss heavy cream
    French-pressed coffee
    Provolone cheese
    Baked chicken, bone-in, skin-on
    Eggs, local
    Mild pork Italian sausage
    Grassfed beef
    Water with lemons and/or stevia

    Hiked half-way up Tumamoc Hill (40 mins)


    Lately my hunger has been hard to satisfy and I've been reexamining my diet (am i getting to much protein? not enough fat? etc.)

    I honestly tend to over analyze things anyway, so I am trying not to rock the boat, as it were.

    But I've been plateaued for 3 or 4 weeks now and I am concerned. This past week my body felt more dense, it felt as if I had gained extra weight, although the scale stayed steady.

    I'm wondering if my body is busy moving fat to be burned by my metabolism -- would this explain the increased hunger?

    Hmmm. Don't quite know what to say about your diet. Don't you eat any unfermented fruit or veg?

    I design websites and blogs for a living. If you would like a blog or website designed by someone who understands Primal, see my web page.

    Primal Blueprint Explorer My blog for people who are not into the Grok thing. Since starting the blog, I have moved close to being Archevore instead of Primal. But Mark's Daily Apple is still the best source of information about living an ancestral lifestyle.
