Celebrate! I Feel Great
So I have been tinkering and I'm practically Primal now, and I feel great. I'm not getting head spins or blackouts when I stand up and I'm - get this - not constantly hungry! It is so free-ing.
I think you guys gRock!!
I'm off eggs, dairy, nuts, gluten and I still have loads to eat. I'm no chef but the food I'm making tastes great. I've got a very lazy snack list of plain hot cocoas, or lettuce wrapped in ham, or coconut oil. My cooking is pretty lazy too. Yesterday I put a thing of pork with salt in the oven and checked it twice, and ate it. Just like that. Ha. Who knew cooking was so easy. I kept the top bit to try to make crackling under the grill. It was pretty tasty for a first go.
I feel a bit chubbier which is nice but occured while tinkering with primal. I needed a bit of weight. I'm doing this for energy & nutrition with my tummy troubles and whatnot.
It's hard staying gluten free! Its in nearly everything!
oh, and I hardly feel like smoking, wow. I still am though haha. Old habits. I think the cravings are related to blood sugar spikes and caffeine. I'm still having caffeine.
So yeah, one happy camper here.

That's great! How long have you been on?
Thanks! Ooh a couple of weeks maybe, but I was still taking rice until a couple of days ago. And I was cheating, when out and about. I might be okay with rice, but I want to give myself the bet shot. I'm playing around with some easy vegetable & herb mixes for flavour & carbs instead of rice. Who knew coriander was so tasty ha!
