How far have you fallen off the paleo/primal bandwagon this holiday season?

    I've had some lollies, a slice of cake and a little salmon and cream cheese pie. I way prefer primal food, but if a delicious pie has some gluten in the pastry then I see it as well within 80/20 for me. The cake was just ok. I regret the lollies though, they just weren't that nice and I felt blah afterwards.

      I can see how a tasty full of flavour and nutrition would be boring to a sugar addict.
      Eating primal is not a diet, it is a way of life.

            Too much red wine, dark chocolate and cheese. Also we have been invited to quite a few parties and family gatherings and ended up eating some sweets. Trying to compensate by IFing and eating clean the rest of the time. Will get back to basics and probably do a Whole 30 in January.

              Well, it's actually been pretty easy keeping on track over these holidays. I fell off (intentionally) for Thanksgiving having some sweet potatos covered w/ butter and brown sugar.
              I've been able to pass up on all the goodies (cakes, candies, donuts, etc.) that are a constant flow during the season. However just last night (as I work the overnight shift at the hospital) my boss dropped off a trey of SWEETS right on my desk and said enjoy......Well, I did. With full accountability to myself, I indulged and enjoyed. Bounce off the walls for an hour or so and then crashed... Wow.....That was a lot of sugar! and a bit of processed carbs.
              No worries, as I've just started this journey about 8 or 9 weeks ago, this is a life style not a 30 day diet!

              Bob, weave, & roll w/ the punches! Every day is an opportunity to do the right thing for life.
              Feeling good.

              Oh.....and Happy Holidays to all!

                Not good, but not terrible, either. Just being back on the forums is motivating me to do better, though.

                  Why can't people serve real food at parties?

                  Because if there is crap around I'll eat it.

                  And that's how far I've fallen.

                    I haven't fallen off at all.

                    Perhaps my chocolate consumption has increased a bit due to the larger selection at Trader Joe's, but I don't give a crap about the Christmas foods that everybody raves about. Peppermint? I've only eaten dark chocolate covered peppermints. Eggnog? I made a custard the other day just for fun, with cinnamon and nutmeg, which tasted like eggnog, and while it was good, I don't particularly care for making it again. Pumpkin? I eat pumpkin BY ITSELF pretty regularly anyway.

                    And then, aren't the real meals pretty Primal? Big ole hunk of delicious meat as the centerpiece. Rice stuffing/no stuffing. Sweet potatoes. Usually someone has a salad. That's not hard to do.

                      Although I have to consider myself lucky, now that I think back. My Korean friend invited me to her house for dinner, and they served rice stuffing (Asian), turkey, gravy, baked yams, an Asian salad with pine nuts, and TJ's raw cranberry relish. Dessert was Korean rice cake (it's not that sweet either) and Asian pears. I avoided the gravy and just ate dark meat, but I could pretty much eat everything, so no social faux pas there

                        I've eaten my share of crap and basically have hit the wall in terms of sweets. Have had some baked goods, egg nog, and some lunches out. All good stuff, but getting to me now.

                        Probably after today will be back on the bandwagon with all of my parties out of the way. Christmas dinner for me will be primal (pork roast, cauliflower gratin, green veggie).

                          Not at all.

                          And that's why I'm here eating HFLC Primal/Paleo.

                            Too much wine, almond meal cookies, and popcorn. But I have enjoyed it and have only gained a few pounds.

                              I don't: I haven't. I understand that I have choices and options. My choice is for a very lean body therefore my options are to eat strict paleo. And guess what? It's working. There's no magic bullet -- no magic pill. I want and desire A more than I want or desire B --- s i m p l e.

                                ++++++ 1. The paleo foods are considered by some to be bland --- compared to the sexy sugar/carb foods. I grew up with slow cooking parents and NO prepared foods, so moving to primal was easy for me. I eat the same things, day in and day out and never grow bored with my foods. I LOVE my body -- feel sexy in my own skin and love the results. Pretty simple exercise.
