    For the leg cramps, take Magnesium daily. I guess almost 80% of Americans are lacking it. Your body won't absorb Calcium or Potassium without it.

    Mmmmm.....Celery w/ Almond Butter. I like that snack!

    Grock on!

    I've been taking a 25 mg tab of magnesium every morning. The bottle says take up to 4 tabs a day but I read that over doing it cause some nasty gastro side effects so I've been reluctant to take more. I'm thinking of adding a 2nd tab with lunch to see how that works out, anything to stop the cramping...

    L: (with a client unexpectedly): Chicken noodle soup, beet salad

    S:HB egg, carrot sticks, coffee w 50/50 & splenda

    S: Strawberries w 1/4 cup whipping cream

    I realized I'm not takimg 25mg mag every morning, it's 100mg which equates to 25% RDA. Upped it to 2 tabs this am as I still had killer leg cramps last night. I also had another banana this morning because I could hardly walk from the soreness in my calf. 31 grams of carbs from 1 banana is a killer. I need to get this under control. I wonder if not staying hydrated enough has anything to do with it. I know that 6-8 8oz glasses of water daily is arbitrary BUT if that's what your body is used to and then you dial it back a little does your body respond in negative ways? I'm adding the 6-8 back in for a while + 200mg mag & a banana every couple of days. I'm just going to keep playing until I get the combo right but in the meantime the cramps, resulting soreness and loss of sleep is making for a pretty cranky grokette today.

    Another observation. I haven't really noticed that I feel any different eating primally. I've completely cut out grains (on a regular basis-had some last night)and am working on the sugar/carb thing so I'm not eating as cleanly as most who are here but I eat cleaner than the general population. The point is I don't feel any differently eating right BUT (again with the capital b-u-t) I surely know when I've eaten wrong! I really feel like crap the next day. Today being a prime example becuase last night I was out to dinner and a show after work and aside from the leg cramp thing I feel crappy from the food and have been **starving** all day. It's loke having a hangover. Carb craving? My imagination? Who the heck knows! All I do know is that bad eating suddenly makes me feel bad! I know that sounds like bitching but I'm actually pretty happy about it becaue it's even more incentive to stay on track.

    Sbecuase I don't know how else to classify it) 1 coffee w 50/50 & splenda,

    D: (@ Sebastians) 1 pizza-bread stick, lobster/avacado cocktail served w/4 very thing waffle cut potatoes fried, pan seared sea scallops over Jersey fresh corn & peas in sweet cream sauce, strawberries & blueberries over vanilla ice cream w/whipped cream, 2 merlots, 2 jamacian coffee

    And just as an aside we saw Jason Alexander last night in his 1 man show. Bleeping hillarious!!! DH and I were actually on stage as part of the show for a couple minutes and haven't stopped laughing yet. Today kinda sucks but boy was last night a hoot!
