So I've finally decided to take the plunge again. I had much success with a primal diet last year after reading Dr. Cordain's book. Sadly, I let myself fall back to my old ways and I now look and feel worse than I did before I ever started. I hope to add more of my story and more stats to this thread later, but I wanted to get started with some basics today.
I am 26 years old, male and a first year teacher (not a career I would inflict on my worst enemy).
I am 5'9" tall and I currently weigh 231 pounds.
Today's food intake:
4 egg omelet with bacon and cheese
1 cup of cottage cheese
2 tablespoons of salsa
10 oz. beef steak pan friend in coconut oil
1 cup broccoli cooked in butter
1 cup romaine lettuce with red wine vinegar & olive oil
I also drank a few cups of unsweet tea (the only way it should be drank, by the way) and some water throughout the day.
Any and all encouragement will be much appreciated. I can already feel the effects of the low carb flu, as I am a bit spacey, dizzy and have a bit of a headache. Hopefully it will pass quickly. I've also started logging my food in Fitday for the first time. Hopefully that and this journal will help keep me on track. Thanks for reading, thanks for the support and thanks to Mark for all he does!
