It has been a full 8 days since I began going primal, plus a few partial days before that. Of the 8 days, I have been pretty pure primal on 7 of them. On the 8th day I went full AWOL and had a pizza.
Of the 7 days where i was pretty good, I did cheat a bit. Main cheats consisted of barbecue sauce, diet soda once or twice, a little fake sweetner in my coffee, maybe a couple of other odds and ends. But, on those 7 days I did not eat any rice, wheat, bread, pasta, potato nor any other complex carb.
All in all, I have felt pretty good during this period (except i had a bad cold a few of the days). The main thing I notice thus far is I am never ending up "stuffed", which is such a nice feeling. I hate being stuffed, and no matter how hard i tried before, i always ended up stuffed after a meal at a restaurant. Not so with this approach.
I have not had a scale during this period. I will return to my home in 3 days and will have access to a scale. So I will weigh in after 10 days of pretty good adherence, and will post a weight loss update.
During this 7 day period, I have been way low on calories some days and clearly high on a few of them. I can't tell if I'm losing weight. If i had to guess, i might have lost a pound or two. We'll see.
I have not worked out at all because of a few reasons which will be rectified over the coming weeks. In any case, I am giving the process to the end of January and will reevaluate based on how i feel and how the weight loss progress is.
Meanwhile, I just ate a can of sardines right out of the effin tin, no condiments. Shit just got real.
