    Primal Fuel
    Food OCT 18

    Breakfast- Glass of iced tea (I should make note that I've been making this iced tea myself and that it's not some store bought sugary crap) + Supplements (2tbsp mct, 3000mg salmon oil, 2x cal mag tabs)

    Lunch- Black coffee

    Snack- 1 cup of hot beef broth

    Dinner- 4 meat cups, 2 pickles

    Dessert- 1 square lindt dark 90%

    So I come out of my room this morning and there is some weird asian guy sleeping on my couch. I can only assume guest of the room mate but still threw me off guard...

    I'm starting to notice now that I have a cycle going at work that my ghrellin is starting to bubble earlier in the day. After a week of fasting at work It'll be good to start bringing lunch and whatnot. All in good time It's the last day of my first week at work. I'm praying it goes well. There's already been some bumps in my moral being at this job but I thank god that I have it. It's much better than waiting for a job!

    Hmm, thinking of this leptin reset thing. Maybe I can do it even with my schedule. In fact, my schedule might be conducive to leptin resetting. I'll do some reading.

    I was wondering about that iced tea, actually. But not too much. I figured you wouldn't be mainlining crap.

    Now you have me intrigued about the "bumps" at work. But it's probably not a good idea to get too specific online...

    I know you put this somewhere, but how do you make your meat cups? Do you just season some ground meat and bake it? Do you put egg in it?

    Your post about finding a guy on your couch reminds me of many, many moons ago when I woke up one morning and bumped into a guy wearing black leather from head to toe coming out of the bathroom. My housemate's guest, of course. She could really pick 'em! Talk about the walk of shame - going home on the subway at 7 AM all in leather -

    The meat cups are essentially any meatloaf recipe put into a muffin tray. I found them good as a quick grab and go (similar to really any meal made into a muffin cup). I like doing eggs too and full on omelets as well. These ones were pork and beef, egg, coconut flour, tomato paste and spices.

    So yesterday was a bit of a gorge fest of a day. about 95% paleo... so here goes

    Breakfast- Eggs benny on tomato and fries from the baur kitchen. Black coffee on the side (obv, the vegtable oil is not paleo)

    Lunch- 2 chicken thighs and some veggies, dark chocolate after

    Mid afternoon black coffee

    Dinner- @ Nick and Nat's Uptown 21
    Course 1: 1/2 portion of duck con feit with pecans and walnuts, 1 bite of frois gras in philo (philo being the non paleo aspect)

    Course 2: Salad with goat cheese

    Course 3: 4 spoons of strawberry and raspberry sorbet (as a pallet cleanser)

    Course 4: (only ate about half), Massive pork chop, smoked sausage (about half the size of a regular sausage), and a mix of ham pieces, sour krout, potatos, and apple.

    All in all I'd say it's the most I've eaten in a long time but no regrets! It was all soo good!
