    Hi Gemstar....

    Thank you for your reply. I recently left Israel after two years living and learning in the old city, where I began this thread. As I was studying there, I had some limited options, and you can read all about my adventures here!

    Totally agree that its all a process. I think I started this thinking I would be trim and sharp after 6 months, and while I have lost a heap of body fat, I also am stuck fluctuating with the last 10 kgs. Takes a lot of steam out of me, and I must admit, I do eat for comfort. But every bit helps, and in the log run, I plan to get where I want to be

    We are in a totally different world, because I'm a grannie who is into cooking and baking, and I've been experimenting with alternatives for many many years. I call Passover LOW CARB, because most of the traditional cakes prepared are made from nut flours! So I made energy balls from tehini, date syrup, almond meal, and some pumpkin seeds and sunflower seeds. I also added some chocolate chips. I also made balls from coconut, almond butter, honey and almond meal.

    Even tho we can't keep this diet based on pastured natural animal products, it's still a million times healthier than the SAD or the SID.
    One of my biggest issues is variety. I would love it if I could get a copy of some of your recipes if possible. Given the issue of keeping kosher, on top of primal, it means that sometimes I have an issue with keeping things fresh with different tastes. I burned myself out on a number of foods (Cottage Cheese I just can't look at let alone eat anymore, but I was eating it with salad like 3 times a day!) and am always looking at new ideas and flavours. For me, preparation is the key, having food to go to when I am hungry, otherwise I get tripped up...

    Do you add coconut oil to your menu? It's great stuff. If you do, buy only the oil that is imported by a company called Jammoka. The other CO's are partially hydrogenated oils. You can tell the best CO by the slight aroma of coconut, the other oils do not have this aroma. CO is very healthy and helps with adding the extra fat we need to stay satiated.
    Yes, yes, YES! My total answer to a lot of things while in Israel! I am in Canada now, and the coconut oil here is affecting my stomach, but Jammoka was amazing. I have a bottle on its way to Australia and should be there when I get back home. I was eating it and adding it to everything... Wow, do I miss it now that you mention it...

    Any ideas or thought you might have Gemstar, I would love to hear and share with you. I need to get some ingredients and cook up a storm. Prepare for success...

    Shalom...

    New update :

    Still going strong, although I have had a few slip ups. Got stuck at a friends house where dinner was soup and bread, so I had one piece and as much soup as there was. I went to bed hungry, but I got to work it off peddling around the streets the next day.

    Heading back to Australia really soon, where I hope to take things to the next level. Keep things going smoothly in the right direction. I now see that the real challenge is not starting living primally, but keeping it there over a long period of time. I like my carbs and sugars, and need to just take myself off them, and keep on track...

    Moving to eating a lot more salads, but noticed that a lot of them are full of dressings that are just full of sugars... Need to find something I can make and bring with me so I can keep off that junk...

    Reading the Primal Blueprint again. Need a refresher. Where were the days when I read this in a day and started... <sigh>

    Love you all, you just never knew it...

    Good to hear you're doing well Shifty. As for salad dressings: I make mine as a Olive oil/Balsamic vinegar base. Then I add spices such as cumin, oregano, garlic powder and basil. My latest batch has cinnamon and it is fantastic. I make it in wine bottle sizes and use it throughout the week. Very tasty, and no CRAP included! Good luck, and keep up the good work. I'm always around if you need tips:-)

    Cheers,

    Thanks guys...

    Been hitting the primal track, but ended up making some hard decisions last night. See, I was at my engagement party, and just had to have a piece of cake to celebrate!

    If I ever needed motivation, I certainly have it now! Three months and counting down, and I am going to push everything as hard as I can so that when I walk down the aisle, Im looking good and feeling great... for me!

    Just wanted to share the good news with you all. Amazing time here, but Super primal begins now!

    Love you all, you just never knew it...
