    Wow, your food photos are very luring! And your results speak for themselves. I am happy for you you found health in already 30 days, and of course that you lost a load of unwanted weight. really hope i can say the same soon , although i took baby steps and am only at the start of the 30 day journey.

      out of curiosity, do you think you'd have had the same weight loss results if you weren't doing IF?

      I've dabbled in it, but only doing 24ish hour fasts - either eat breakfast and not eat until breakfast the next day, or do the same with dinner (this method was a lot easier, oddly).
      it helped with weight loss before I started eating primal but then stopped helping. I'm curious to see if it will help again now that I'm eating a way different ratio of macronutrients.
      I don't think that I would have had the same success because I would have been eating for the sake of eating, not because I was hungry. The IFing that I do happens very naturally for me. I'm not IFing for the sake of it. I've simply switched to the mindset of eating when I'm hungry ONLY. If I'm hungry at midnight, that's when I'll eat. If I'm hungry in the morning, that's when I'll eat. Naturally, when I wake up in the morning, I'm not usually hungry, so I simply wait until I am. Doing it has definitely taking the obsession away of eating because it's time to eat according to the clock. My IF's generally last from about 11pm to 3pm the next day, rarely much longer. Today, I didn't eat until I was hungry, and that was at about 6:30pm. If you're going to IF and will be away from home, just make sure that you have something with you for when you get hungry so that you won't be so hungry that you'll want to eat any crap in sight.

                      Where do you get the time for all of this?! Your other half must love how much you are making! (BTW has the other half gone paleo with you? If so what differences is he seeing?)

                        I just found your journal. You should think about linking to it in your signature. You've made tons of progress in a short time. Definitely an inspiration. I also like the idea of documenting meals through photos.

                        I've been having strawberries, but by themselves. The cream looks YUMMY. I'm off dairy, at least for my first 30 days on primal, so I think I'll try some tonight with coconut milk. I envy your farmer's market. We have markets here, but they aren't farmer's markets like in Canada and the US -- everything is brought in from who knows where.

                        By the way, Ottawa is a great city. I have a cousin who is from Ottawa. I've only been a couple of times, but it seems like a very livable place (except for the winter!).

                          I generally prep my lunches the night before (if I'm working the next day). I like making roasts because the meat is cooked for a few days in a row, just prep in by pan frying it the night before. Super easy, so long as you take the time to do it

                          DH has not really gone paleo. He still eats bread and sweets, but not nearly as much since I don't buy it. If he wants it, he has to go buy it himself. I do all of the cooking and make doubles, so he generally eats primal for lunch and dinner. If he doesn't bring his lunch (like today - which benefits me cause I'm eating it again during my overnight shift tonight - Yum - smoked pork-chop), then he eats whatever he wants. I'm not sure if he's noticed anything though, cause he's probably eating bread products for breakfast. So yes a bit, but not by choice.

                            Hey, I will include it in my signature. Didn't even think about doing that.... thanks for the idea. I'm also loving the photo journalism for my meals. They look more appetizing in pictures than what one would picture from what I write.

                            - Ottawa is nice. Some good things, some not so good things (like any city really). The farmer's market is great though. I AGREE!! Winter SUCKS in Ottawa, if you don't do winter things like skiing, snowboarding (which I do not). Summers get really humid and there are lots of thunder storms (which my dog isn't fond of). Springs/Fall is super nice generally. Sometimes cool but very enjoyable.

                              Yup, same here. I did lose a couple inches on my legs and feel like they are getting slightly more firm with all the walking I've been doing. But yeah, same problem.

                                This is all I ate today. Was not hungry. I slept until 1600 hrs (working an overnight shift starting at 1900 hrs until 0700 hrs). Didn't eat my first meal until 2130 hrs. It's now 6am, 6 June 12. I work for 1 more hour then walk home. Maybe I'll get hungry by the time I get home.
