  • Holiday weight gain? Where U go?

    I really ATE, but I made mostly Primal choices. But I really ATE. You don't even know. My stomach poking out under my ribs, hard as a drum head. I might be holding five pounds of water or stool, but that's it. Go Primal!

    I ate horribly and DID gain.

    But a two day fast plus a couple of days back on my IF + one VERY large meal a day and you barely knew!

The metal in my head clangs and clings as I walk - freaks my balance out. So the natural thought is just clogged up. Totally clogged up. So we need to unplug these dams, and make the the natural flow... It sort of freaks me out. We need to unplug the dams. You cannot stop the natural flow of thought with a cling and a clang..."

        I made some not too good choices, mostly Lindor dark and not so dark chocolate truffles and didn't limit my calories at all, all last week. I too felt bloated and bigger somehow. So on the 26th went VLC for a few days with only salad greens for carbs and back to my usual exercise routine.
        Now I'm back to my pre-holiday shape and my appetite is considerably lower.

          Don't those have gluten? I think I almost got sucked into one of those things but there was an ingredient that stopped me.

              I ate like a pig for 2 days. Cookies, candy, pie, noodles the whole thing. Put on a few pounds but it is all gone now plus another pound on top of it. No big deal to me, it's a journey not a sprint for me.

                i just destroyed myself. i had 12 days of vacation and ate a ton of non-primal food every single day. at first it was just to celebrate the holidays...then it became an experiment of sorts. i wanted to see what it would take for me to put on some noticeable fat (plus it's not like i was all that lean to begin with). well, i gained some fat for sure. now, i get to play around with how my body loses fat. also, i have a theory that i'm going to bust through any plateaus i had before the holidays.

                here are a few things i learned:
                i can stupidly, blindly eat whatever and however much i want for two weeks and still fit into my clothes...although they're tighter
                i have no food intolerances, but could have some acid reflux issues to keep an eye on
                no SAD food tastes as good as most primal foods
                eating/moving primally keeps me from getting sick
                it would be remarkably easy to stay primal during the holidays.
                gaining fat quickly sucks
                prediction: i will lose fat quicker and easier than i gained it.

                  I either went for pleasant hikes or I sat out in the sun all day reading. I ate whatever I wanted, all primal with the exception of chocolate and champagne. I probably gained some weight, of course. I'm no Knifegill.

                    I splurged on latkes, yummy cranberry cheese & crackers, and a small piece of this aMAZing gluten-free chocolate cake someone had made. Only sugar I've had in a year. So, one night of highly enjoyable food debauchery. Not bad.

                      i did the same thing, i am back eating primal and feeling great just after 5 days. . .and it is nice to see the fat leaving already!

                        I gained about 6 lbs (since Thanksgiving) by eating whatever I wanted which included too many cookies, eggnog and other crap. I imagine that plenty of it is water.
                        Started a Whole 30 today.

                        On the upside.... I made myself sick of sugar. Oh, and eating gluten= back pain for me.

                          From Thanksgiving to this morning, I gained a pound. Fortunately, sweet toothery isn't my downfall - but I did overindulge on cheeses and firewater. Still and all, there have been holiday seasons where I gained 7 or 8 pounds, so I'm a happy camper.

                            I maintained; didn't eat one bite of grains the whole month. Sooooo boring, but I have other goals, not just weight stuff......

                              I actually lost weight and am closer to 100 now. Need to gain a couple. All my get togethers for the holiday took place at sushi restaurants where all my friends and I had tiny bits of fish.
