    Week 2 of a 3 week survival session.


    Time to really rough it out. Things aren't looking so good for Grok. Winter's coming and food is getting scarce.


    Guidelines:


    1) No alcohol, dairy, chocolate, or "treats."


    2) Carbs below 50.


    3) IF one meal per day.

    3b) Or try going Carnivore.


    4) Use only what you already have in your kitchen. No new groceries.


    How many can you follow? Can you take them all on at the same time? Can you survive?

    My meals are getting so boring! This week I've got steak, shephards pie, meatloaf, almond flour pizza, and DH wants me to make a "real" lasagna. I'll make it because I don't want him eating McDonalds for lunches but I won't be having any of it.


    Today I had deviled eggs, chicken pesto, green beans, and shrimp. oh and an apple with almond butter.

    No treats, no sweetener of any kind, no fruit, no nuts, no milk (I'll try). One dinner-to-dinner IF.

    Count me in, although I confess that this cavegirl raided the local shop for fresh provisions!

    The most treat-like thing I have is half a dozen clementines.

    Otherwise, the usual for me


    Good luck everyone!

    Modified cave mama version:


    Guidelines:


    1) No alcohol, minimal dairy, chocolate, or "treats."

    2) Carbs between 50 and 75g.

    3) IF one meal per day.

    3b) Or try going Carnivore.

    4) Use only what you already have in your kitchen. No new groceries.


    Sweet, thanks DCKMB!!!

    Count me in Last week didn't work out so well. Still had some friends in town for 'holidays' so needless to say there was wine and beer consumption and perhaps a french fry or six...


    This week, I am going to focus on:

    -No alcohol

    -No new groceries (I am addicted to grocery shopping I think.. haha)

    -No eating out

    -IF one meal per day

    -No eating past 7pm (I am a serious late night binger)


    I started in a Triathlon club this week, so my fitness will be swims and bikes and runs! whoop! I may try to sneak in the odd core session, or weights session for overall fitness!

    I'm in.


    Today went well. I'm sure my carbs were over 50 though.


    At church we had brunch with the Quaker congregation that uses our building after our service. Everybody brought a dish to pass. I took roasted carrots and onions, which were a big hit. There were fruit and veggie trays, deviled eggs, bacon, cheeses. Of course they had brownies, muffins, pancakes and other stuff like that, but I was able to eat pretty well with only Primal foods. I did go back for seconds though, but not a lot.


    Skipped lunch and went right to work. I did nibble a little towards the end of my shift. Mostly mushrooms and pulled pork. A couple bites of steak when I could get it.


    I think I'm gonna skip dinner. Not really hungry. I do think I'm going to have a nice glass of home-made kombucha though. I REALLY need to find some gallon jars with spigots. They have the sun tea ones, but they've all got gaudy designs on them.

    Ok, I'm going to do this really modified--can't even be called survival week really. But I'm going to post it here just b/c it totally motivates me.


    This week, I am going to focus on:

    -No chocolate, no tubers

    -IF every other day or go carnivore

    -eat 2 or 3 separate meals a day and 1 (small) snack at the max (keep my between meal snacking to a minimum)

    -no more than 100 g carbs a day (like I said, really modified)


    Hope you don't mind I'm doing it this way!! Thanks for having me folks!
