    Primal Fuel


    I'm all new to this, so I guess this will be my primal challenge - getting into the primal way of living...


    So... one of my friends recommended this site to me.

    And I must say, It's alle very fascinating stuff.

    A life without bread? Is it really possible? Or even - sane?!?

    So I've gone ahead and given it a shot.

    I'm into my second day, and it seems to be working out really good for me. At my first day it seems I got rid of all my weird sugar cravings (I always have those in the afternoon), so that was a nice surprise of course.

    Just out of curiosity, I counted all the calories of my meals the first day (and I'm not really a fan of counting calories) and it added up to approx 1000 calories (not at all starving). Now - I'd been living on 1200 calories before, and I was just hungry all the time. Needless to say I was a bit surprised (and very thrilled) by this.

    I've been reading a lot of the stuff on these pages, and besides it being very entertaining (I read "10 Things to Tell People that Don’t “Get” the Primal Diet" - thought it was great!!) it's also very educational. So thanx Mark for this great site!

    And now to the dailies:


    B: 2 scrambled eggs, 3 tomates sliced and fried and some sliced mango and pineapple. Some milk for my coffee (not so primal I guess - but hey - still learning here).


    L: Nupo shake. Maybe we only have it in Scandinavia - not really sure. It's a protein shake with added vitamins and minerals (Well - I was in a hurry).


    S: Small mix of nuts and dried fruits. (Yum).


    D: Beef filet. Green beens with avocado, mozzarella, tarragon vinegar, olive oil, chopped onions and garlic. I can definitely recommend that!

    2 glasses of red wine. (Only on weekends).


    WOD: Biking for ½ an hour, and 1 hours walking.

    Tomorrow I'll do some lifting of heavy things... :-)

    keep it going brother, You will have to educate yourself about what does work for you. Keep doing your research and you will think very differently than before.

    I believe sugar and carbs cause your hunger pains when in reality you are not even hungry.


    good luck

    Dailies:


    B: 2 scrambled eggs, 3 fried tomatoes and a mix of pineapple and mango. Yum.

    ... And a cup of coffee with milk (not so primal I guess - but I'll be cutting down on that).


    S: Cherry tomatoes, bresaola salami and clementine.


    L: Chicken, green beans, avocado, mozzarella, olive oil, terragon vinegar and a bit of basil on top. Lovely.


    WOD

    1 hour of walking


    40 minutes workout.

    Bought "The Biggest Loser – The Workout" (UK version).

    Strenght training's great - cardio... not so much.

    But it does have really good strength exercises (with dumbbells) like squats, lunges, dip and shoulder press, crunches, press ups etc.

    So far it's going pretty good.

    I think one of my challenges is going to be not eating any candy whatsoever.

    So far so good!
