      Breakfast: coconut milk yogurt, berries, almonds and walnuts
      Lunch: coconut milk yogurt, berries, small bowl of black bean soup, acocado slices
      Dinner: Collard greens simmered with onions and garlic, steak
      Drinks: green tea water
      Supplements: NAC, garlic, fish oil, emergen-c, multivitamin

      Notes: I was wondering what the general though on beans and legumes is, I don't experience any problems when I eat them, but I know they are not primal. I guess ocassionally is not bad(kinda like diary), but they should not be a main source of protein. I also discovered I love coconut milk kefir and yogurt, I am thinking of trying my hand at making my own, it might be fun to learn. I think I will avoid any more legumes, I am trying to be 80/20 this holiday season

                      Today looked like most of my other days breakfast was eggs and nitrate free sausage, I skipped lunch, had some almonds as a snack, and for dinner I had more primal-style sushi. I ate more fruit than what I would have liked too(an apple, two small clementines, and 6 strawberries), I also had a bit of 70% chocolate to celebrate. I also had a few broiled hot wings, I tried not to obsess over food and just enjoy the company of my family. Well Happy New Year!!

                          I am no longer restricting my fruit and vegetable intake (for the time being), as I noticed being too strict has triggered binges in the past. Now that I have finally started to get binging under control, my focus is now healthy eating(within the primal blueprint), so lots of berries, veggies, cocnut oil and meat. So far the new year is off to a good start, now if I could only remember to write in my journal everyday!

                            I feel better, I am not going to stress out over taking my weight or measurements daily (that can drive a person crazy), but take them 2-3 times a month. The binge eating patterns could return if I am not careful, so my main focus now is avoiding a relapse, in another month or so, I will see how things are going and then enter a ketosis level (40 g of carbohydrate or fewer). Right now 1700-2200 cal and 100 or fewer carbohydrates is working for me.

                                My day was my usual eggs for breakfast, salad for lunch, protein for dinner. I think my body is finally starting to recover from the effects of binging, and at the risk of TMI my period was cramp free, and I decided to have a scoop(around a quarter cup) of coconut milk green tea ice cream, again no cramps bloating(I think my body likes it more than regular ice cream). I cheated and had a clif bar today as a snack(I know, I should not have bought it), and my body suddenly reverted back to it's usual hot bloated mess that it usually is during that time of the month. If there is any time to be primal it would be during my period(no cramps, mood swings, or bloat).
