rats, the scale has a strange draw, especially when one of 2 things happens. 1. I am doing really "well" with what ever protocol I am following regarding food. and 2. I have what I consider an off day or go off the protocol for whatever reason.
I felt like I had been doing pretty well, then yesterday went off course slightly with the dessert. No guilt, I chose it consciously, totally controlled. But curious this morning. My weight is still within the same 3 pound range that it was when I started Primal and then Leptin Reset. So I decided to plug in my planned meals to fitday and get my nutrient break downs, just to ease my mind going forward. So here goes...
B: Mocha, 4 eggs, spinach...Cals. 533; Fat. 32.4 (55%); Carbs. 5.4 (4%); Protein. 52.1 (41%)
L: Salmon, avocado, mixed salad greens, vinegar...Cals. 428; Fat. 24.1 (48%); Carbs. 14 (12%); Protein 42.5 (40%)
D: Beef, mixed salad greens, coconut oil, vinegar, cauliflower...Cals. 542; Fat 40.4 (66%); Carbs. 10.7 (7%); Protein 36.2 (27%)
So the daily totals...Cals. 1514; Fat 97 (57%); Carbs. 31.9 (8%); Protein 131.6 (35%)
I think this is exactly where I should be, so I will stay the course till my birthday, as planned, with no significant changes, following my 5 Leptin Rules.
p.s. I follow the beliefs of Paleobird, and others, that while this is not about calories in/calories out this is not meant to be a food shoveling free for all, and calories, on some level do count and so until I get to losing fat I will be counting them, or at least keeping aware. Not going to be obsessive about it, because I don't and won't measure my food.
