    usual first meal is bone broth with like 3 tablespoons of kerrygold and some seaweed, sometimes one egg. if i'm hungry but eating with the b/f later, i might have some melted brie with chopped avocado on top for lunch. this way i can have a decent serving of protein for dinner.

    i shoot for about 100 gms of fat each day and about 60-70 protein. if you use a program like fitday or cronometer it will calculate everything for you and you don't need a spread sheet.
    Noodle,
    How much protein was too much protein? I feel like I am doing low carb, not overly high fat (aka low fat) and loads of protein. I have been primal for about 3 weeks and have had little (to no) results. I am only about 15 lb heavier than I would like to be so it is not like I am expecting an explosive loss or anything...

    Jayner - I know this question was not directed me but ........... just wanted to point you towards the EAT MOAR FAT thread. I think all your questions can be answered there. Welcome to primal...........

    my motivation

    As per Marcadav:
    Do 30-60 days clean primal.
    No grains, sugar, alcohol.
    Eat 3 meals and primal snacks.
    Don't track food.
    Don't tweak.
    Don't expect issues to go away quickly. Instead, just follow the plan and see how things play out.
    Decide on an exercise plan you can/will do consistently during the 30-60 days and then do it.

    vivi666an is a busy thing! she hit my journal too! So I got to report her twice! wish they had a better way to track those things. I think every user name that comes in with numbers should be an automatic flag to the administrators! annoying little things!

    it was pretty easy for me to go over 100-120 gms most days. i'm small, only 5'2", and just turned 49. even though i am very active, i simply don't need as much food anymore. i reduced protein and increased fats and that seems to be working. am also taking a chinese herb called dong quai which has helped balance my hormones. i think that has been a huge issue for me gaining and stalling in weight.

    fitting it all together has been a relief.

    As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy and to make plans.

    I've used Dong Quai in the past - but probably not for long enough to make any kind of difference............ maybe I should do a little research and think about trying it again. ???? I'm doing pretty good on the high fat, mod. protein, and VLC - and I'm not hypothyroid anymore thanks to the Armour. I could use some help energy still............
