  • women with my stats share typical daily eating plan please?

    I know this is an odd request, but I'm new and struggling. I started Paleo last week, but fell off the wagon with a few major social events last weekend and have not yet 100 percent gotten back on track this week. I feel horrible, want to go back to feeling less bloated and overall better as I was those first few days on Paleo. I am ready to get super serious now for real (been gearing up for a few days, have cleaned out my refridg. of everything but Paleo fare), but I think I am getting discouraged by the number of posts I'm reading about women who struggle to lose any weight.

    I'm female, 41 years old, 5'2", 140-142 pounds. I don't know what my body fat percentage is, but I'm guessing it's pretty high. I've never lifted weights or even done much of anything as far as strength training in my life (eep), and I have been an on and off again runner. I've been feeling super chunky since the holidays (before the holidays I was more like 136-137)

    So other ladies who share my approximate stats? Thinking in particular women who are 5'0" to 5'4"ish, 35 and older, and now weigh close to 110-120 after being on Paleo from a starting weight of 135 or above? What were typical things that you ate on a daily basis while in weight loss mode? What was a typical day in the life? (IFing? exercising?) Did you ever have wine or other indulgences?

    Thank you thank you, anyone who answers this!

    Or even if there's nobody with those specific stats, just an idea of what might be good amounts of Paleo-friendly food?

    I think I'm worried because I see samples of things that people eat, but there are lots of younger men here that of course probably lose weight by just thinking about losing weight and can get away with eating a lot more.

    I think because this is a diet where a lot of fat is allowed (like bacon!), I don't want to sabotage myself by thinking I can eat a lot of it just because it's Paleo-friendly and then just end up gaining weight. I feel like my body is super unforgiving at this point in my life.

      Heya, I will be 37 this fall, I am 5'6 and 1/2" tall, and 3 years ago I weighed ~ 150 lbs after preagnancy and child-birth. I lost weight CW way by doing boot-camps and cardio and starving on high carb/low fat (down to 118 lbs); and was driven to, first, whole foods diet, then to Paleo (high protein, lower carb), and now more and more Primal (higher fat than on Paleo, less carb, dropped dairy, fruit and nuts) by desperate starvation and exhaistion I experienced on CW.

      When I first went Paleo, my weight stabilized about 122-125 lbs, and I could not lose from there. I was lifting heavy 3x a week, and doing cardio 5x a week for 30-60 min, plus walking.

      I did my first cycle of Ultimate diet to drop to ~ 118 lbs (doing 2 light depletion workouts a week, 1 medium weight workout a week and 1 heavy workout a week, plus 20-30 min SS cardio ~ 2x a week, and one HIIT or sprint a week, plus walking at least 30 -60 min a day) and cycling carbs.

      Then I did Whole 30 without fruit, nuts or dairy, but with white potato, where my weight stabilized at ~ 117 lbs, doing 3 heavy lifting workouts a week, ~ 2 SS short cardio (30 min) and 1 HIIT or sprint session a week. I did not count calories. I IF every day for at least 14 hours, unless hungry, eat about 3 meals a day, with the early meals being very low on carbs, and later meals with carbs.

      My normal day foods will look like:

      3-5 eggs + 1 cup egg whites with 1 cup of spinach, a cup of home-made bone broth (~ 10-11 am)
      ~ 250 g of poultry or meat with some fresh or steamed veggies (~ 2-3 pm)
      salad from root veggies with ~ 1/4 cup coconut milk, stir-fry and another 200-400 g fish, poultry or meat. (~ 6-8 pm)

      My normal workout schedule will be:

      Lifting 3x a week (45 min to 1 hr each)
      Dedicated SS cardio (30-40 min with wu/cd) 2x a week
      Cardio intervals/sprints (bike or fins): 1x a week (~ 20-25 min intervals, wu/cd)
      1 Zumba class a week danced at full intensity (~ 45 min)

      I am trying to do another cycle of UD2 right now, to see if I can finally get rid of my thighs and flatten up my belly. I am about 32" in my chest, 25" in my waist and 35-34" on my hips. I do not look ripped, just smooth and my thighs/hips still look saggy.

      I do not drink alcohol, and never did. Until I went Whole 30, I indulged in fruit, stevia sweetened fermented dairy, honey, nuts and nut butters and, once a week I had something baked (a small serving). I had square of dark chocolate a few times a week. Eliminating these indulgences really helped me. My appetite stabilized, and I finally switched from carb-burning mode to fat burning mode, judging from the change in my hunger pattern and nature (no shakes, dizziness, disorientation).

        i'm 38, going on 39, 5'3" when I started pirmal I was over 190!, I'm currently down to 160. I'm on a different course than Leida - she's got some great info, and look into it. I've got PCOS, plus some other crap going on as well. I've been doing the Leptin Reset, and I'm now in the post Leptin Reset. Once I get on bioidentical hormones (progesterone is in the toilet, and T & E are supper high- massive estrogen dominance going on) & I take care of one other medical problem - I expect my weight will fall of... when I get to my final weight I expect I'll be some where btwn 130-145 range depending on body fat... I've lost a ton across my legs, hips, back/chest. none on my waist, and I've gained inches on my arms (Whoot GUNS!)

        I eat til satiety (never happend before) now I can eat bkfst - and I find I'm pushing 1/2 of it away, and I'm eating a half-ass breakfast instead of the big ass breakfast of the Leptin REset. I walk the dog 5-7 days/week... LHT 2-3x/wee and HIIT 2-3x/week (though recently I haven't felt like doing much so I've just been walking)

        I'm chasing a soon to be 4yo and a soon to be 2yo around in the evenings after work...

        A typical day looks like the following:
        bkfst 2-3eggs, meat, yougurt or berries & bullet proof coffee

        Lunch: tin of oysters, sardines, salami, or salad. some times I skip lunch just not hungry (I don't force it if it happens it does)

        Dinner: meat and veggies, maybe a glass of malbec wine and a piece of dark chocolate.

        I've issued dh a Lenten challenge (he's catholic, I'm not) to go wheat free for Lent, he challenged me to give up chocloate and wine... so I said yes.. I don't think he was expecting my concurrence... so I'm waiting for him to agree to the challenge or not. either way in 2 wks I'm going to force myself into KETO, to deal w/candida, and some parasites (I've been dragging around w/me since I came back from living overseas) with the help of modern medicine...

        What I like about the Leptin REset is it made sense (meal timing, eating during the daylight hours) and worked for me. my n=1. I realize not every one is a fan of Dr Kruse but hey each their own..

        have you read paleobirds counting calories thread? that's got some good info in there too!

        not sure what else can help...sometimes we just have to try different thigns to figure out what works forus!

          I'm 5', and soon to be 46 and weigh about 112-114lbs.

          If I eat breakfast, I eat 2 eggs and about 2-4 slices of bacon. Sometimes an omelet with onions and peppers with or without diced up leftover meat from the night before. Sometimes this ends up being my lunch instead.

          If I skip breakfast I eat lunch between 1-3pm. Usually leftovers from dinner, breakfast foods or soups. Soup being one of my favorite one dish meals.

          Dinner-steaks, chicken etc. with veggies. And I love my veggies.

          I'm not a snacker. Most days I only have 2 meals which really suits me. If I'm hungry I eat. I don't worry about timing and this and that cause all that makes me nuts!
          Workouts are 2 weight days and 2 20 minutes intense workouts a week. Or do 1 intense workout and one stretching type of workout.

          Wine- well that is my downfall. I do drink a glass 3-4 nights a week.

          When I want to lose weight I generally have to roughly track calories. When I do, this I see my weight come down. I also don't try to eat consistently the same amount every day.

            I'm 5"3" and will be 39 next month. I went grain free for a few months and lost 10lbs(starting 151), gained back about 3 and am now hovering at 144ish. I've decided to go full Primal and yesterday started adding in more fitness than just the yoga/pilates I have been doing.

            Right now that consists of following the free Primal Blueprint Fitness e-book. So I'm doing Yoga/Pilates on M-W-F and the body weight exercises on T&Th and then doing some walking and raquetball playing in there as well.

            I used to be in great shape. Was a firefighter for 10 years and trained a lot but then injured my knee, moved out of my response area and for the last six yrs have had a desk type job so gained quite a bit of weight. It seems I eat a lot and lately have been really hungry. I am finding that eating lots of protein really helps. I'm hoping it also helps with the fatigue I've been experiencing for the last year or so. I'm tired of being tired.

            I have also concentrated on getting enough good fats. These are a bit hard for me since I'm a recovering vegetarian and as of yet do not eat a whole lot of meat. My main sources of protein come from eggs, fish and some dairy, mainly cottage cheese although I have found a nitrate free breakfast sausage I like and I've recently had ground beef and enjoyed it.

            I've just started a journal in the forum just for that purpose and am keeping track of fitness and food there. Yesterday looked something like this...

            Bullet Proof Coffee

            3 eggs with breakfast sausage and cottage cheese

            Boiled egg and strawberries

            Salmon with veggies

            Then I ruined it with 2 beers while out with friends and some dark chocolate. lol

            I don't take any prescription meds. As for suppliments I take fish oil, D3, C and a multi. I also use herbs a lot with my cooking and drink herbal infusions almost daily to help support immune system and possibly boost any other issues I'm dealing with.

            I hope that helps in some way. All the best to you on your journey!
            Went grain free Oct 2011 and now Feb 2012, going for Primal.

              I'm 5'5", 46 and 126 lbs., which is my ideal weight. I started out at 135. When I first went primal I ate mostly animal protein plus vegetables -- hardly any fruit -- and I got too skinny for my taste, about 120 and stayed there for several months. Breasts deflated and my face was a bit gaunt. I added in more fruit and now hover around 125-127 depending on the time of the month (hormones). This is my ideal weight. Slender but still have my womanly curves.

              I have a busy schedule but work out 5-6 days per week. When I say "work out" that means some combination of yoga, pilates, walking, swimming. I mean to add in weight training/sprints once I graduate from school in the spring.

              I'm fairly strict in my eating. No dairy except butter, no alcohol. Just meat, fish, fruits and vegetables. I rarely snack because my meals satisfy me but I will have the occasional handful of nuts.

              Some days I eat 2 meals, other days 3. Breakfast can happen as late as 1pm and is usually leftover roast chicken or eggs with some kind of fruit (apples, avocado, pears, or a home-made smoothie). I don't skimp on the fruit.

              My second meal of the day:

              meat plus vegetables. This can include a tuber like a sweet potato.

              If I eat a third meal, it's usually small.

              Beverages I drink are: herbal tea (no sugar), water, seltzer, beet kvass (a fermented drink made from beets).

              Good luck. It's a great way to eat.

                We are pretty alike in age and size. I am 5'2", and 39 years old. I started Primal on Dec 27, 2011 at 135 lbs. I've only lost 5 pounds since then, BUT... I've lost 3.5 inches from my belly, 4" at my waist, and 2.5" at my hips. I'll take that!! I think my goal weight will be around 125. I've got nice boobs and would like to keep them.

                Here's a typical day for me. I'm far from an expert, but it's working for me.

                Breakfast: 1 egg and 2 slices of bacon, if I'm hungry. A handful of almonds if I'm not.

                Lunch: usually a "leftover salad". Meat and veggies from dinner warmed up and put over salad greens with home made ranch dressing. Sometimes, I poach an egg in diced tomatoes, add lots of cilantro, and a good splash of cream. I eat this with half an avocado. It's absolutely the ugliest meal ever, but it's delicious!

                Dinner: Some kind of meat and veggies. We eat elk, beef, and pork and occasionally chicken. Lots of fish and shrimp. The pork is from the grocery, so that's not the best. The elk is from a hunting trip and the beef is local, grass fed and grain finished. I love roasted vegetables so we usually have that. I almost always have a square of chocolate in the evenings too.

                I don't usually snack but if I'm starving, I will eat an apple with almond butter, or a glass of milk mixed with cream. I probably consume way more dairy than average, but it makes my tummy happy.

                I don't do any official workouts, but I am very active outside. I am at my desk 4-5 hours a day and up doing stuff the rest.

                I do cheat occasionally, usually with a homemade baked good. They didn't kill me for the first 38 1/2 years of my life, so they probably won't kill me now either. I am obviously not gluten or lactose intolerant though!!

                  Wow, thank you so much for your helpful answers!!

                  I will read them in more detail again tomorrow so I can be more thoughtful in my response! But I really have liked reading what has been working for all of you.

                    I'm 43 , 5'1 and about 114. Primal really helped me drop the last few pounds and defined my muscles.

                    A typical day might be:
                    Brk: banana with almond butter
                    Snack: hard boiled egg
                    2 cups Raja's cup

                    Lunch: 6 oz left over meat, sliced cucu
                    mber with balsamic dressing, strawberries
                    Snack: nut mix
                    dinner: rogan josh with large salad or a stir fry

                    If you are interested in meals, you can visit my blog (link below) .
                    It has links to some fab blogs. For starters paleOMG rocks and so does paleodish

                      My mom is not part of this forum, although she does eat Paleo with occassional minor cheats. She is 43, 5'2" and weighs 107lbs. She typically eats two meals a day, but sometimes she will have a snack in between if she is hungry. Her eating pattern would be very similar to what paleobirds calorie counting thread is about, and she suppliments fish oil. She does not have set meal times. Basically she eats when she is hungry and doesn't when she isn't. She might have a bit of bacon once a week. If you read through paleobirds thread, it might be very helpful to you. Paleo can be different for women over men it seems.

                        When I saw this thread I knew I had to come back to it to see how others responded. I started a journal in December, but haven't really participated in the forums.

                        I'm 38, 5'1". I starting eating primal 9/26/11 weighing 142 lbs. Current weight is 131 (weighed on Friday!). I don't have a goal weight but 125 would be nice. I've seen it before and felt great, but even at 131 I feel so much better than at 142. As you can see the weight hasn't "melted" off, but it is coming off & I'm not perfectly primal by any standard!

                        I've cut out butter almost completely, using ghee instead. I keep a brick of kerry gold butter in the fridge for times when I'm cooking for the family and butter would be a good fat & flavor choice (ie: in mashed cauliflower). For me, dairy is part of my 20%. I'm not lactose intolerant or anything, but I've found limiting dairy has helped with minimizing other cravings.

                        I also keep bacon to a minimum as I can't find good bacon locally. I don't use the bacon fat as some do. Unless it were from a good source, commerical bacon isn't that great of a fat source in my opinion.

                        The last few weeks or so I've really upped my veggies at all meals, including breakfast. My brain finally has given up the concept that breakfast = fruit & bread.

                        Breakfast - lately I've been eating leftovers instead of eggs. Or adding 2 eggs to left over veggies. For example, yesterday I heated some left over cauliflower/turnip mash in the pan w/ ghee and then added 2 eggs (I scrambled them as I hate the taste of egg yolk!). If no leftovers, then I do three eggs (scrambled, but no water or milk added) in ghee with spinach (I always keep a bag of frozen spinach in the freezer). Sometimes I add a bit of fruit on the side like berries or 1/2 an apple to round out my meal. Also, I always, without fail, have coffee with about 2 tablespoons of coconut milk (from the can). Took me about a week to get my coffee/coconut ratio right. I was sooooo hooked on cream, felt like I was using coffee as my vehicle to consume cream! ;o) I've absolulety cut my coffee consumption way down. Sometimes I don't even want it if I've had a good enough sleep.

                        Lunch - usually leftovers with a green salad. I try to make a huge salad a couple times a week then eat it with several lunches and dinners. At lunch I'll re-heat any meat leftovers and then mix it in the salad with a bit of olive oil. If no leftovers, I grab a can of tuna & some veggies & toss with olive oil or mashed avocado, salt, & pepper.

                        Snack - (this one's hard for me!) I always have avocados on hand & I may eat one for a snack. I make guacamole a lot & have it with veggies. A piece of fruit with some almonds is my go to snack. Sometimes (more than I'd like to admit) a piece of cheese w/ salami sneaks in as a snack & I'm really trying to break this habit! ;o)

                        Dinner - meat & veggies. My family likes shepards/cottage pie so I experiment with that a lot (diff veggies, diff meat). & it usually lasts for me to have leftovers a few times (the other family members don't do leftovers very often). We have recently discovered "meatza" and that has also been a hit at home and one pan makes a lot! My SO has even requested it & he is SAD all the way!

                        The basics:
                        My 80%
                        Veggies -
                        all kinds, any time
                        Meat -
                        all kinds, but inlcuding more & more grass fed options as I go along. Also trying to add in more fish - not a lot of good fresh/wild sources in the middle of MT.
                        Fats -
                        avocado, olives, coconut oil, coconut milk, olive oil, ghee.
                        My 20%-
                        Dairy, nuts, coconut flour based treats.
                        Occasional-
                        Alcohol, homemade bread (a co-worker brings in the most scrumptious bread from time to time!).

                        Recipe idea sources I use are: Everyday Paleo by Sarah Fagraso, fastpaleo.com, & chowstalker.com.

                        I hope this helps & spurs more conversation. I've found "leaning out" for me requires a bit more discipline than just eliminating grains & other processed food. I'm on week 3 of "You Are Your Own Gym" and that seems to be helping - I think it contributed to my 1 lb weight loss in 2 weeks, versus 1 lb weight loss in 1 month doing Whole30 w/ sporatic exercise. My life doesn't naturally lead to PBP play and "lift heavy things". So the basics of YAYOG and walking my dogs more regularly are what I fill in for these parts of the PBP. I'm still a work in progress for aligning my stress levels and sleep with the PBP.

                          AliceAnne: Thank you for all your information!! I have absolutely LOVED reading this thread and seeing others in my boat/potential boat.

                          I, too, love avocados and homemade guacamole. I found a packaged guacamole with all natural ingredients so I got that today, since I just can't stand the mashing part of making it at home, lol! One thing that will be SO hard to give up is homemade bread that a friend makes. It is out of this world divine. I will have to have a small piece occasionally, or I will not be able to continue this lifestyle, haha. But before, I would eat like 5 slices, which is no good.

                          Newlifejourney: Oh, wow. 107 would be like my DREAM weight. Seriously. I haven't weighed that small since maybe college and that was briefly. Tell me, what is Paleobirds? Do you have a link?

                          Curlygirl: oooh, I checked out your blog. That Rogan Josh recipe looks delicious! (I love Indian food!). Also, almond butter is one of life's big joys! I have to stop myself from wanting to eat too much of it!

                          Hopeful: I really derived some use out of what you wrote about your eating habits. I am really concentrating today on my first official start day to really listen to my body for hunger signals instead of just eating out of habit. For example, this morning, I didn't get hungry until almost 10:30 a.m. (and I was up since 5 a.m. and had eaten a very light dinner the night before). I ate at 10:30 and still feel full at 1:30 p.m. now. I don't know when I'll feel hungry but I will try to eat an actual meal, not a snack then and then maybe I won't be hungry the rest of the day...

                          Lynn: I can't imagine the feeling of getting too skinny for my own taste. It's been so many years that I've been on the edge of overweight and upper range of a healthy bmi. I can't remember what it feels like to be lower on the bmi scale...Your eating sounds delicously healthy! I love a smoothie made up of banana, berries, and coconut milk. I pretty much guess I can't get away with eating it every day at this point because I want to lose weight, but occasionally, like on weekends? Yes. Yum!

                          Calico: I, too, am a recovering vegetarian! Eating meat has been really weird for me, like rediscovering new food. There is an element of guilt for me, too, but I think I have thwarted that by shopping at a local coop that buys meat from local farms who use humane practices and buying eggs that are cage free. I found some low-sodium, nitrate-free bacon that is delicious!

                          Tneah - oh, I hear you on the wine! I could easily drink two glasses a NIGHT if I let myself. My job is stressful and it just winds me down so nicely. I am trying to go down to first taking a few nights off drinking wine. Next step will be to only drink wine maybe twice a week. Then to once a week. My ultimate goal will be to have wine be an occasional thing (a few times a month or something).

                          Shijin - wow, thanks for the information!! I've asked someone else above about the paleobirds and where I can find them? Giving up chocolate and wine. You are a strong person! I hope I can get to that point, too!

                          Leida - thanks for all that information! Lots of good stuff there to consider and sift through!

                            I had no idea there were so many woman about my height and weight on this forum! I'm 38 5'3'' and around 135. I am down from around 185 when I started primal. I have a medium/large frame so I look decent at this weight, but I would really love to drop another 10 lbs though - it's great to read what other women my size are doing

                            I hope people will keep posting their meals or tips here. I think it might motivate me to get serious about the last few pounds. My issue is sugar. It snuck back in and now I can't get rid of it again
                            Using low lectin/nightshade free primal to control autoimmune arthritis. (And lost 50 lbs along the way )

                              I'm 28, 5'1''. Started at about 150 and am now hover between 124-128. Starting to look quite a bit better and definitely feel better. I started dabbling in primal in March last year and now with the exception of a day here or there I am pretty much all Primal. I've gotten quite burntout on eggs so a typical day lately for me has been:

                              Breakfast: some type of hash with berries and occasionaly a cup of coffee with heavy cream. For the hash I make for breakfast I usually use ground turkey because it's a little lighter for me than beef. The berries are a new thing. If I didn't cook anything the night before, I'll usually have a tanka bar (can be googled and bought online) for breakfast with some type of fruit. If I am looking to lean out, I cut the fruit.

                              Lunch: Big Ass Salad. Usually composed of dark leafy greens, lots of spinach, green and red bellpeppers, bacon, red onion, cucumber, and a balsalmic vinegarette (made with 1/2 vinegar, 1/2 olive oil and enhanced with dijon mustard).

                              Snack if I'm hungry: pumpkin seeds or cucumber slices (with lox and some cream cheese if I have it).

                              Dinner: Always protein with a veggie mixed in. The protein is anything from ground beef or bison, to steaks, pork, whatever. As long as I am buying it grass fed and pastured I am okay with it. My local co-op here does really good meats so I don't really have to worry about it. I will sometimes also have some chai tea with heavy cream and vanilla extract, which is good when I'm tired of drinking water. Dinner often has a glass of red wine to go with it.

                              I lost almost 30 pounds eating this way and doing nothing but the workouts in Primal Blueprint Fitness. I recently signed up for Tough Mudder though and need to get in much better shape so I joined a good local crossfit gym near my house and will keep walking 3-5 hours a week. I went from 33% body fat and last measurement was 25% body fat. I also did a cholesterol battery which came back amazing. My ultimate goal is to get below 20% BF no matter what weight that is at. I would like to start seeing more tone and definition as well as bigger gains in endurance and strength. I don't count calories at all either, although I might if I start having trouble leaning out the last bit. It hasn't been an obstacle as of yet though.

                              Cheers and good luck!
                              ~All luck is earned in the end.~
