    Primal Fuel


    Arthur's Primal Challenge Journal


    Starting Point

    Age 32

    5'11

    185lbs

    ~14%bf (will get tested but was 15% at 190lbs so guessing)


    Goal: knock off 1% bf while keeping strength and muscle size.


    I've had great success with this nutrition plan... down 5 lbs in a month and wasn't even trying. It isn't water either because I was already eating "clean" by normal standards.

    08/04/09


    Breakfast – Protein shake with whole milk (~50grams of protein in total), fresh pineapple, coffee, multi and flax seed oil

    Snack – almonds, sunflower seeds, raisins

    Workout – full body, core, stretch

    Lunch – leftover sausage, turkey, cheese, mushrooms, peppers and a banana

    Snack – almonds and an apple

    Dinner – 2 x 1/3lb of ground beef burgers (pasture fed) with tomato slices

    Snack - ~3oz sharp cheddar


    NOTE: I shop at whole foods and a local farm so most stuff I eat is organic and as natural as I can reasonably get. I also drink about 120oz of water a day when I workout. (fill water bottle up about 5x a day... 24oz bottle)


    I’m taking tomorrow off from the gym because I’m pretty sore today. Probably do some strecthing and a walk later after work... nothing major.


    Things are going well.

    Breakfast – 4 eggs and cheese scrambled with blueberries on the side, coffee, multivitamin and flax seed oil

    Lunch – 2 1/3lb pasture fed beef patties with tomato slices and a banana

    Snack – almonds and an apple

    No workout today (sore and swamped at work so no lunch break) so I wasn’t as hungry at dinner as usual… also the lunch was pretty filling.

    Primal Blueprint Expert Certification


    08-08 to 08-10


    Was a RI holiday Monday so didn’t workout for those 3 days. Was sore as hell from sprinting class the Friday before.

    Ate pretty good… no big cheats to report.
