    Active lifestyle

    Age : 28

    Waist : 28-29inches

    B/f : 10-12%


    It's been 5 days since I have been following this diet. So far so good....infact great.


    Some other things.....


    1 Pasteurized milk is out. Replaced it with raw milk.


    2 No more grains ( breads, muffins, pastas, rolls, wraps etc although I "Might" indulge in a pizza once in a blue moon....like I said I might. )


    3 Coffee is limited to one cup a day regular tea is replaced with herbal tea.


    4 No more sweets ( pastries, pies, cookies etc ) Instead I have greek yogurt with berries or 1-2 pieces of dark chocolate or 1tsp of honey drizzled on a few chunks of pineapple.


    5 No more soy products although I do use a little soy sauce as a seasoning. ;-)


    6 No more deep fried stuff. Instead I make my own stir fried chicken thighs marinated with spices and herbs.


    7 Alcohol...limited to special social occasions only as opposed to biweekly thing of the past.


    8 No colas,sodas, soft drinks...It's been a few years now since I haven't touched them.


    9 Smoking....quit about 8 months back and haven't looked back since.


    10 Made a transition from the regular grocery store meat to grass fed variety. Also included some game meat.


    11 Fast food restaurants are out....who needs them anyways?? The paleo-primal food that I cook is way more tastier plus it's healthy.


    Grok on........

    It's almost 6 days now since I have been on this diet....


    1 Generally feel very calm and collective now.


    2 Don't get hunger pangs the way I used to earlier.


    3 No whatsoever cravings for carbs or sweets so far.


    4 Definition in the physique seems to be more prominent along with vascularity.


    5 Skin and hair texture seems to be generally improved to a degree.


    6 Been getting deep, pleasant sleep.


    7 General breathing seems to have improved. Haven't used any inhaler in past 2 days.


    So far so good....

                  Ok..one more silly question... Are the EFA&#39;s part of the foods eaten or taken as a suppliment?
