Falling off the wagon already! Help?
It seems like I just cannot escape the need for carbs/sugar. I try to do all the tricks-- a spoonful of coconut oil, a handful of nuts, a big glass of water, even a banana if I'm really having a hard time. But at night, I hear the bread and sweets just calling for me! Today I had a "20%" day, and am letting myself eat whatever I want, just for today. I have eaten bread, jelly, and sugary cereal, and I feel like hell. Maybe this little lapse in my journey to go totally Primal will help remind me just exactly why I decided to take this route in the first place.
Anyway, I guess I am just looking for support in jumping back on the wagon. I really wanna do this for myself and my health, but am not sure what's missing in my diet/life that is giving me such horrible cravings. I know I just started out, and I really appreciate everyone's support and advice, which is why I keep posting so much, I guess.
For anyone who wants to help even further, yesterday I had:
Breakfast: 1 cup pumpkin purée with vanilla whey protein isolate, almond butter, shredded coconut flakes, and slivered almonds with carrots and celery sticks to dip.
After breakfast I went to the gym and did a sprinting/uphill hiking exercise program for 3.5 miles
Lunch: 1/2 can BPA free tuna in water with 1.5 oz avocado, carrot, and tomato slices wrapped in nori. Fage 0% Greek yogurt with coconut oil and blueberries mixed in
Dinner: the other 1/2 tin of tuna with avocado, mayonnaise, carrot and olives wrapped in nori again. Green beans roasted in olive oil on the side.
After dinner I had a smoothie with chocolate protein powder, half a banana, kale, chia seeds, and unsweetened coconut milk.
In the middle of the night, I woke up starving. I went downstairs and ate 2(!) small bananas with nut butter and coconut flakes.
