It's an unwinding ritual with hubby - I won't give it up. But it's free of all grains, legumes, sugars, sweeteners, all the bad stuff. Pure alcohol and two olives.

    Supper at a Chinese restaurant tonight with friends. Will be challenging!
    Marthat - I haven't tried tuna with avocado and EVOO -- that sounds great! I was going to make a batch of paleo mayo, but this sounds tasty (and much easier!) -- did you do anything to the avocado? Mash it w/the tuna? Or was it strips/chunks? How much EVOO?

    As for Chinese tonight...maybe stick to steamed veggies, avoid the tofu, and drink lots of oolong tea?

        Day 1 movement: vacuuming entire apartment, blocking laaaarge knitted items.

        food: wasn't particularly hungry, so I just made egg drop soup (chicken stock, salt, eggs, ginger, chives) for lunch. Had some leftover chicken thighs for dinner. Will be eating and moving waayyy more today

        Went to a movie last night, and aaaalmost broke down when DH went to buy popcorn, but he came back with caramel popcorn, and I was like, "okayyyy that's disgusting. PASS." Also took a jar of water kefir in my purse to last me through the movie.

          Day 1 was a success until bed when I started coughing so hard I hurt my throat which just made me cough harder. So, I took two spoonfuls of honey to soothe my throat.

          Yesterday:

          Breakfast:
          4 sausage links
          3/4 - 1 cup sauerkraut
          Copious vitamins

          Lunch:
          Baked chicken breast and thigh with skin
          Steamed carrots
          Steamed green beans
          Mix of strawberries, grapes, watermelon and pineapple

          Dinner:
          6 Eat Like a Dinosaur Chicken Nuggets
          Grapes

          Movement: walking from one fridge to the other moving food items from old fridge to new. Making dinner and cleaning up kitchen.

          And I know we're not supposed to weigh until day 30, but I'm a daily weigher. I have lost 1 lb and some change since yesterday. Won't be disappointed if THAT keeps up! lol

              Day 2

              Withdrawal is not as bad as I was expecting - so feeling great with a bit of a niggling headache rather than a full blown migraine type head that I was expecting.

              Chicken Salad

              Dinner
              Bacon joint, Broccoli
              Berries

              Lots of Water

              Swam for 30 mins

              day 2 done -- on to day 3.
              1st June 11 to 30st Aug 11 - 36lb removed in 13 weeks

                  I add a whole avocado and a tin of the Yellowfin Tuna in EVOO (Cloverleaf or similar - 85g tin) to a salad with celery salt and pepper sprinkled over. Avocado is sliced in half, then diced in the half shell and scooped out. Tuna is dumped in oil and all. Replace lid and shake (blends the oil through and sort of partially mashes the avocado for added creaminess. Sometimes the salad is based on baby spinach or sometimes simply a large tomato diced up.

                    Day 2: Ate all three meals out! Breakfast at Farmer's Market - 3 egg and peameal bacon "parfait" with bruchetta mix over it. Lunch was at an all-you-can-eat sushi restaurant - ate salad, sashimi, short ribs (a bit sweet), teriyaki salmon (also a bit sweet) and two hand rolls with most of the rice dug out. Not perfect, but pretty good. Supper was a German restaurant, trout with an almond sauce, no potatoes and double veggies. Black decaf coffee for "dessert". Pretty good day, given the circumstances...

                    • Day 2

                      Breakfast coffee

                      10:00 4 Deviled egg halves
                      11:00 grilled hamburger patty with mustard, 1 cup blueberries with melted ghee shredded coconut and cinnamon
                      6:00. Roast chicken, roast sweet potato and watermelon. Not bad for a cookout. Didn't consider eating the chips, wine, cake,etc. still ate more than I would have liked and feel stuffed.

                        TKD tournament class. Kill me now.

                        I'm trying to get better about not snacking, not even on healthy Whole 30 foods. So when my friends munched on cheese and crackers (not Whole 30) and raw veggies (very Whole 30), I realized that I wasn't hungry, so I didn't eat. Dinner took forever to cook, but I didn't start getting an appetite until about 6:30 pm anyway -- and even though I was very hungry by the time we ate (8:30), I didn't overeat...because I stopped when I felt like I had enough. Cool. And even though my friends were drinking, they knew I was doing Whole 30, so they had drinks that I really don't like, so I wasn't even tempted. Huzzah!

                        • My day went pretty well.

                          Breakfast:
                          2 eggs fried in bacon grease with pepper
                          6 slices nitrate/nitrite free bacon

                          Lunch:
                          2 hamburger patties (feed-lot beef, though)
                          1/2 sweet potato sliced into fries and sauteed in coconut oil
                          1/4 beet sliced and sauteed in coconut oil

                          Dinner:
                          1 1/2 hamburger patties (at the race track - they were gross so I only ate a little bit)

                          Snack:
                          fresh cherries YUM!

                          WOD: walking back and forth in front of 100 yards of bleachers chasing my daughter at the races. Sometimes carrying her, sometimes just following. Annoying. Also went shopping today and mosey'd through Walmart for an hour. Remade beds after washing laundry on 2 beds (hoping that helps with the allergy issues I have supposedly been dealing with for 3 weeks).

                          Tomorrow, we're taking our boy fishing. Should be fun. That's going to qualify as "play" for me this week.

                          So far, the only "difficulty" I've had is with the no dairy thing. I'm realizing just how much dairy I used to consume by stopping myself from consuming it. It's rather discouraging at times, but I know this is what I need to break the sugar habit and finally break below 200 lbs.

                            • Hey guys

                              Bit slow on the posting, but I'm so keen for this month! Stoked to see everyone getting into it and doing so well Here's a summary of me so far:

                              Goals: put a stop to some bad eating habits that have crept back in recently, and get back to feeling great on the PB Would also love to shake off the little bit of belly fat that's crept up since I fell off the wagon a few weeks ago.

                              Starting weight: 64 kg (around 140lb), at around 5'9. This is wayy up from my usual weight of 58/59 kg/around 128/130lb. Some of it must've just been water weight, though, because I (naughtily) weighed today and was back down to 60.5kg/~133lb. So, not a lot to lose, but I'd loovve to be a muscly 56 or so kilos!

                              Day One: the whatever-is-primal-and-left-in-the-fridge

                              12.00: Liver cooked with coconut milk, onion, garlic, a little olive oil. Two tomatoes, fried in olive oil.

                              3.00: Guacamole (avocado with lemon juice), with cucmber slices and capsiicum slices.

                              7.00: Four mini quiches with eggplant, onion, assorted other veggies.

                              Other: Two cups lemon/ginger tea

                              Exercise: Nothing formal, but seven hours of walking around at work.


                              Day Two: finally went to the markets and stocked up on yummy fresh stuff.

                              11.30: Two small bananas, samples eaten as I walked around the market - a piece of buffalo sausage, some sweet potato roesti, a bite of some turkish snack - unfinished after I realised it had cheese and pastry in it.

                              1.00: Salad of lettuce, tomato, capsicum, cucumber, with a splash of lemon juice and olive oil. Two pastured eggs fried in ghee.

                              Snack: handful of almonds, ANOTHER banana (bad! too much fruit in one day)

                              7.00: Salmon fillet, skin on, with a lemon juice/coconut oil/garlic sauce. Another salad, since the one at lunchtime was delicious! Same ingredients as before, plus some seaweed.

                              Other: Two black coffees - organic, no sugar, no milk.

                              Exercise: 45minute walk, with a sprint session at the end (eight sprints, maybe around 80% effort - not great, but I'm easing back into everything).

                              Pretty pleased so far - not perfect, but alright. I'm excited to see how this affects me - I've never gone dairy-free before, even when I was otherwise almost totally primal. So this will be interesting. Sorry for the long post! But congrats guys, everyone's doing awesome so far!

                              Ps: bought some fresh squid at the market today - not sure what to do with them! Any ideas?

                              • Day 2 (The Graduation):

                                Breakfast: 4 small pork sausage links, a young coconut (water and meat).

                                Lunch: Tuna salad with homemade mayo, 1/2 avocado, a few pieces of steamed sweet potato.

                                Snack (I got hungry during the very long, boring graduation): Roasted cashews. These were the only questionable item of the day, but not so bad.

                                Dinner (at Mexican restaurant): Pulled pork. I subbed the rice and beans for a side salad. I also ate a bit of my cousin's steak.
