    Like ur list sugarbaby. Thought I would join in since I'm doing a LR approach tho not prob needing reset. Am about halfway thru the book. Got it from library.

    I've done the breakfasts for maybe 2years, but the no snacking is new to me. Understanding the reasons behind it makes all the dif. Last night was my first of not eating after dinner. Wow. I'm so happy with this.

      Grilled a pork roast, will get probably 4 meals for partner and self. On a whim sliced a couple organic golden delicious apples getting a bit soft, tossed with a little coconut oil and put them on the grill for ten minutes--very good! With some cucumber salad on the side.

        Ok Sugarbaby, I'm in! I bought all I needed to make a giant quiche and lots of high protein yogurt. It's skim yogurt (sky.r? brand) but it had more protein than fage total. I hope to combine the yogurt with quiche for most mornings.

        However, I spend a few nights a week away from my apt, so I may need to have some more portable protein like either egg white or whey shakes, maybe even some bars. From what I've read it's best to avoid whey for this but I need something to take a long that can stand being out of the fridge for a couple hours. I just bought a package of Quest bars for my afternoon snack last week but since I won't be snacking anymore they may have to become part of breakfast now.

        I can't believe how much I spent on groceries in preparation for this yikes!! I have to go easier next time.....


        What do you plan to do for breakfast after this is over??

          AnneA: I find any bars have too much sweet taste for me, which makes me crave, but if you can use them that's great. The initial outlay will keep you going, but you will find ways to get the most from your food dollar. If you eat out, then start making your own, that's a huge savings. I did a quick calculation of what my son was spending eating out for a month, vs what I spend on organic, grassfed, in other words expensive food, and found I was spending no more for two people than he was for one. It looks like more when I pay out $200 for an order of meat, say, but then that meat feeds us for a least two weeks or more of the month. Pre-planning makes all the difference--I speak as one who used to be terrible at food planning, but on primal I finally had to get on board. Not that I always stick to it perfectly, but at least I know what I'm going to eat most of the time, and any variations have to do with this vs that protein or veg not in overall food.

          I was a sugarbaby; meaning since I was born I was given lots of sugar, and ate lots of processed foods, especially sweets until I was into my thirties. Most people in the west were/are sugarbabies.

            Happy 4th of July! Parade in Philadelphia just started so I won't make it since I'm an hour west. What happened to all the parades on the 4th in every little town??

            I'm in the July 4th mood for some primal ice cream, so plan to do a coconut milk cocoa version later today. It's getting hot already so won't be doing any grilling today, but having grilled two days enough food for a few, will have either burgers or chicken. Here's the plan:

            B: Bacon, then choc Optimum Protein with coconut milk, coconut, plus one square of dark choc blended with ice.
            L: Anyone's guess, but probably chevre on almond flour crackers I need to finish.
            D: Burgers with guacamole & cheddar, on mixed greens, with various veggies I need to get used before they spoil (pepper, cuke, scallions, ??)--and ice cream!

              My breakie today was: 4 oz bison patty, 2 eggs, bit of mushrooms and onions, 1/2 grapefruit. I looked back at photos of my previous B's and see that they were 2oz bison, 1 1/2 eggs, and 1/4c approx veggies. So, clearly not enough protein to take me to lunch. And it didn't! You really have to write it down or take photos of this stuff. I couldn't figure what was wrong because I thought I'd eaten the same before and been good to lunch.. The DIFFERENCE was just that I began to cut down the amount too much.

              No eating after dinner last night. That was Day 2. I had emotional wanting to eat and habit type appetite but not too bad. No sugar cravings by now since I went off it (again) about 3 weeks ago.

              If anybody wants to do this way of eating, I think reading the book really makes it clear Why and How...

              And, I think I do need the reset, the more I read....

                Violette (such a pretty name! do you say veeo-lette, or vyo-lette?): I used to be literally plagued by cravings. So I was really shocked that getting down that manly man's steak and eggs could make such a difference; I just don't get hungry and don't think about food all the freaking time. So I am sure I am leptin resistant, probably have been even when I was quite thin, based on sleep and such.

                  Sugarbaby, Do you sweeten your ice cream? If so, with what??

                    I'm curious too. When I make ice cream it depends on the taste test, usually not, but if it seems to need a boost I will add 1/4c honey, or few drops of Now stevia. If very ripe banana is used, it will be plenty sweet enough for me.

                        Not sugarbaby (and not sure if she does any fruit, at all) but blending coconut milk, frozen strawberries, vanilla extract and stevia to taste is yummo to me! You can add 100% dark choc. chunks too...mmmm!

                          Hi SugarBaby,
                          It's Vee-o-lette. Accent on the lette. Thanks, I like it too.

                          Yep on the protein curing the sugarblues. Today I probably needed more ptn at B cuz I got hungry in 3 hours. Gotta keep the counting ptn up and not slack off till I get a strong habit going.

                          I'm making chicken thighs for the 4th. No coconut for me. I remembered that it's pretty high in arginine and that's not for me. Prone to shingles virus.

                          Still easing into this leptin thing and tonite will be day 3 of not eating after dinner. I've got that going and the not eating until lunch. This is great. I noticed in the book today that I need to be careful not to eat too much at each meal so the old stomach will not stretch and be more hungry. That's the next thing for me to think about.

                            My breakfast today was a 4 egg omelet with 2-3 oz sausage and 1oz sharp cheddar cheese. Lunch was some ham and cheese and dinner is grilled chicken, lemon broccoli and cottage cheese.

                              A little stevia if needed, or honey; pretty much what Digby said. Sometimes you don't need it. I think coconut milk is sometimes sweeter than others, so that makes a difference, too.

                                Lemon broccoli; is that steamed with a little lemon juice? Good menu for the day.
