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.
Thanx for the reply ohiolopez!
(by the way - that would be "keep it going sister" :-))
Sister, sorry about the confusion.
Cool web site you have.
Wauw - approx 4 lbs in a week - and I'm eating more than I usually would. I'm in lack of a better word - flabbergasted!
I believe sugar and carbs cause your hunger pains when in reality you are not even hungry.
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.
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!
How is the candy addiction.
No sugar cravings yet. :-) Thanx for asking!
I've been doing pretty good - if i may say so.
Kinda proud of myself.
