  • Actually I'm thinking about jumping on the potato bandwagon. I know it sounds retarded, but my freezer is emptying up, most meats can't be gotten fresh anymore, and I am fed up with either feeling lack of desire to eat and bingeing on sweets/chocolates when I do decide to eat. It would be soooo easy if I just ate potatoes/sweet potatoes for a week. And my grocery bill would be so cheap Plus I need to use up all this random protein powder (L-glutamine, BCAA) in my pantry....

    • Saturday:

      Weather has been FREEZING. My skin has been really dry, and I don't know if it's because of the biting cold or because of my sugar binges. I will be off added sugar for the next 2 weeks...

      5 hours of sleep. Breakfast of bone broth, sauerkraut, and shredded coconut. Went hiking for 2.5 hours. Lunch was 1 lb grass-fed ground beef with 1 lb red cabbage and a large sweet potato. Went out again and walked around getting groceries. Dinner was pollock and kale simmered in coconut milk with some ginger. And about a quarter pound of chocolate chips....Calories 3350.

      • Sunday:

        7.5 hours of sleep. Woke up at around 7 automatically and couldn't go back to sleep. Had bone broth, sauerkraut, and shredded coconut. Went out for a bit and slept in my car for half an hour after I realized I was really tired. Came home energized and not necessarily hungry, but ate the 1 lb of lamb neck and the rest of the pollock and kale simmered in coconut milk. And then some chocolate chips of about a third pound......calories 3500.

          • Tuesday:

            8 hours of sleep. 12 hour fast. Breakfast was bone broth. Lunch was 1 lb really fatty grass-fed ground beef patties with seaweed in soup. Took a walk of 2 miles. Dinner was a large napa cabbage salad with macadamias and olive oil, a can of sardines, and a bunch of cacao nibs and coconut flakes. Calories 2700.

            In other news, my stools are hard Like to the point where it hurts and the crack hurts I think I may either need to decrease the amount of cabbage or mineral water I am drinking. T_T Since I am drinking 1.5L a day.

              6-7 hours of sleep. Half hour nap for breakfast. 15 hour fast. Lunch was some lamb shawarma and some pilaf. Hoping there wasn't too much bad oil in it. Picked at the sides of the salad that had no dressing on it. Hour nap for after lunch. Gym.

              • Thursday:

                8 hours of sleep, but I'm not sure I could call it that. Woke up to lots of cramping due to period :x Woke up feeling slightly feverish.

                Breakfast was lamb bone broth with cabbage. Lunch was some chicken on mixed greens with a side of steamed salmon and shrimp and a large potato. Walked about 2 miles throughout the day. Dinner, even though I wasn't hungry, I felt I should eat since my period flow was large. Ended up eating tinned sardines, 2 lbs of kabocha squash, and a sugar-free chocolate bar with maltitol and inulin. Calories 1400.

                • Friday:

                  7.5 hours of sleep. Breakfast was lamb bone broth with tomato. Had a snack of kombucha. Lunch was a bunch of lamb and tomatoes. Walked 3 miles and then had a Mexican chocolate bar thing from TJ's. FOUR DOLLARS. Although it was pretty much eating ground cacao nibs, which I can't complain about, since it was more flavorful than regular chocolate. Did a few sprints on the street after work. Dinner was 1.4 lbs sweet potato and a can of sardines. Calories 1700.

                  • Hey Hope the emotional bump in the road is flattening out a bit and not seeming so mountainous... Just wanted to pop in and say hi and to recommend magnesium supplement for the poop problem if it continues to be a problem. I get Magnesium Serene by Soure Naturals. Works great for me. Tastes ok too

                    • LOL thanks! I've started to take magnesium again, and it's becoming super loose again. I guess I just have to temper the amount better, since I am drinking bone broth regularly in the morning now and if I do both, it gets too liquid for my preferences.

                      And the emotional roller coaster has been more flat, thanks

                      • Saturday:

                        8 hours of sleep. Woke up an hour before actually waking up, and fell back asleep, though. Breakfast was bone broth with tomatoes. Lunch was a pomegranate, then a napa cabbage salad with toasted sesame seeds and olive oil. And two tins of sardines. Snacked on a bunch of cacao nibs. Went to the gym and did some tabatas for like 10 minutes, and then walked a bit while reading. Dinner was 2/3 dry cup of rice, 2 tins of sardines, and some kimchi. After dinner I had some Valrhona 85% (I only ate half the bar!! be proud, chocolate lovers!!) and some peppermint tea. Calories 2400.

                        I've realized that my dry skin and slight amount of acne is caused by the sugar in the chocolate, not the chocolate itself. I should stop even consuming the really dark bars and see if it works. Will that mean I have some sort of bacterial infection...?

                        • New plan! Post-workout I don't feel like eating, so I will just eat a bunch of fish or eggs and some rice. On no-gym days, I will eat potatoes, which keep me full for freaking ever, but don't make me feel like eating more food like sweet potatoes do. I got a 50lb bag of rice to consume, so I gotta get moving.

                            • Wow. I might actually have leaky gut, after reading all the info on it. It may have been caused by a chronic stress issue, although chronic stress could be the culprit as well. I am going to focus on no added sugars, no casein, and getting enough sleep and no caffeine.
