Quick intro, Im Mike, 26 years of age and am weighing in at 194. My average meals went something like this:
2 deep fried frozen "beef" burritos
Big Mac meal from McDonalds
Extra Big Mac
Random leftovers, snacks, sweets, whatever I could grab.
On top of all that, thru the day, I'd probably have 3 cans of soda, candy bar, some potato chips.
After a diet like that I know I make myself sound like a hippo but Im actually in a fairly decent shape minus the baby beer gut. I skate a lot, love long weekend hiking, fishing, camping, etc. Id wake up tired, go to work tired, be drained by a third of the way thru the day. I also had bad acid reflux issues.
Thats the past! As of today I've been soda free for a week today. Coming from an addict, thats tough. I started going Primal March 02. Here's my journal:
4 Pieces TriTip spiced w/ red pepper flakes and garlic
romain salad w/ carrots/raisins, raspberry vinaigrette
Half handful almonds
4 pieces Tri Tip

Breakfast (really bad low-carb flu)

Lunch (I know i know...)

AMAZING Grok meatloaf w/ bacon
Few cherry tomatoes
handful of blue berries/raspberries
