Juuuuuuuust started going primal, loving it so far because there's so little guesswork involved when it comes to figuring out what to eat and also loving it because it's really helping kill my sweet tooth(actually I have a whole mouth full of sweet teeth...).
I'm 23, 5'10'' and 165lbs. Recently gaining fifteen pounds was a big eye opener for me, I've been weighing in at 150 for years, give or take a pound. I had been noticing some extra pudge lately, a friend suggested I hop on her scale and....yeah. My whole life I have been carrying my extra weight in my legs, I have prominent saddlebags and a lot of fat on my calves, I'm the only person I know with a lot of fat there lol. Can't wait to have slim legs! They'll probably never be completely thin because I've got thick ankles and knees, but so long as the excess fat is gone I'm good.
Today I've eaten okay, skipped breakfast, went to On the Border for brunch I guess. I ordered the ultimate fajita and just ate the meat. And a small forkful of rice(I know I know!!). It wasn't a lot of meat really, a couple chicken strips, 2 shrimps, a medium-sized clump of pork and a couple strips of beef, but it stuffed me up quick. Later on I baked a cod fillet in lemon juice...won't be getting cod again though since apparently it's not very fatty. I'm hungry again, gonna get some greens in and cook up this trout here.
Went to Whole Foods today and loaded up on some goodies. Grass-fed beef livers(hope they taste like chicken livers), a huge wild caught yellowtail fillet that'll last me a week, grass-fed ground chuck...
Also washed my hair with baking soda and ACV today for the first time. Worked great! Bye bye overpriced cleansing products. Used the baking soda for deodorant too and it's the best thing I've ever used. No more deodorant for me either!
