Ok, I am super confused about criticizing yourself for eating the amount of chicken and beef you ate. By my calc, you ate about 93 grams protein with that meal, and I dont see any else in your day. In primal blueprint, we eat .7-1 gram of protein per lb lean body mass per day so I would think that would be nearly right for you. I would suggest that you spread it out though your meals and eat 20-40 grams protein with each meal. That will help you feel more satisfied throughout the day have have less sweets cravings. If you had only eaten 50g of each meat, that would only be about 20 g protein for the day, not enough for anyone. This diet is really about providing our bodies with superior nutrition, not cutting calories.

Chewing gum sends your body the message that you're eating something, so it expects food to come down the hatch. That could potentially add to your cravings. Snack on hard boiled eggs, or cut up veggie sticks.
Also the fat you have listed there is only about 40 grams. Are you trying to starve yourself?? You need to eat to make a healthy baby.
