At first I was eating very very low carb 20gs a day then I stopped counting carbs and just ate regular primal, I don't eat a lot of bacon or breakfast sausage and I cut back on butter. I eat a lot of veggies & meat...hardly any fruit and nuts. I have a cheat meal once a week but it usually doesn't contain grains, if it does it bothers my tummy.
The numbers are great but I can only see the difference a littlesince I still have a long way to go, I am proud but still need to bust my butt.
I do krav maga (Israeli combat fighting) 2-3xs a week and play flag football once a week.. that's about it for my exercise.
I stopped drinking and smoking, drinking was easy smoking is still a challenge. It was very hard for me to stick to being primal for longer than a few days before but my husband wanted to lose weight and he left all the cooking up to me. So no more eating out no more bread pasta or rice, it was 100% primal at home breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The only time we dont eat primal is when we go somewhere...He has lost 50 lbs! He lost very fast, it was crazy. He has stopped losing and is maintaining right now but he is also not 100% primal anymore, we have cheated a lot over the past 2 weeks. Neither of us gained or lost, but no more cheats until we go to NYC in dec. then we are splurging on pizza(real NY style) and cookies (only fresh baked yummies) After that 4 more planned cheat days Christmas eve, Christmas day, day after Christmas and new years eve (we have family functions all of those days) I know I could say oh, im not going to eat that stuff Im going to be 100% primal on those days but I know that is unrealistic and i am not going to set myself up for failure...So in between those days and after we will be 100% no cheat days not even once a week...
