  • SkinnyCindy goes Coconuts!

    I would appreciate a review and some input. I am stalled big time.

    SW 227.5 - although my highest weight was around 239 last year.
    CW 223.5
    GW 175

    I started primal 95% on Jan 1. I used up some dairy and other not 100% primal items I had instead of tossing them out.
    I know you are supposed to stay off the scale but I need the motivation.

    I dropped a pound a day for the first 4 days and then I stalled at 223. I've been wavering at 223/224 for last 10 days and I believe I'm just not eating enough.

    I really hate to count calories but when I did Thursday I realized I was eating less than 1000 a day.

    Currently I would say I'm 99% primal with my only vice being a can of la croix or mendota spring seltzer water once a day. I'm also 100% organic.

    Here is my menu from yesterday

    1/2 banana

    coffee with coconut milk

    bed of power greens (kale, chard, spinach) with 1 cup roast chicken and 1 cup roasted beets with olive oil and lemon

    1/2 cup ground beef with onion and cabbage

    1/2 cup roast chicken

    I'm full and satisfied when I eat this amount but I realize it's not enough - I use ghee and coconut oil liberally - not afraid of the good fat- and I take a spoonful of cco every night before bed to add in some calories.

    Appreciate any input or advice from the pros!

    That sounds like one meal, not an entire day!

    Have you read the book yet?
