    Hi Tarlach, Eva, Timothy, any others I might have missed.


    Some of you have posted your diet routine and fitness activities at times, but I would love to see what a week's worth of food and movement looks for you. This means what you ate, how much and when; and how you worked out.


    A lot of people doing journals here are newer but I learned a lot from the reading posts from those who have been doing this a while with good results. Would any of you be willing to do this? Tarlach I know you posted your diet several weeks ago; is it still steak every night or do you mixed it up any? What kind of strength training are you doing?


    No pressure at all, only if you feel comfortable - thanks!

    How low carb are you thinking? Low, or VERY low? I'm happy to participate, but I cruise along on about 65g carbs/day.

    Great idea for a thread for us newbies still learning (I'm about four weeks in now)

    Yes I guess was mostly thinking of the carnivore types doing under 50g but if you are willing I still be interested!

    Sure Tiger, I'd be happy to answer to the best of my recollection. It's two months since I started the PB so some of this will probably change, but here's where I am now.


    For meals, I have developed a rough pattern of three meals one day followed by a 24-hour IF (or near-IF) ending with dinner the next day.


    Day "A" Breakfast: Three butter-fried eggs with runny yolks and some kefir OR a zero-carb protein shake with unsweetened almond milk/coconut milk OR a bottle of juiced greens (3g of sugar, but it's all from dark green veg.) Also supplements (just started DCMF today) and a double dose of either cod liver oil or salmon oil.


    Day "A" Lunch: Four strips of bacon and a sliced up sausage (either chicken or seafood) all fried in butter. Also three eggs if I have time and appetite.


    Day "A" Dinner: The real feast. To take last night's example, all fried in butter/coconut oil/bacon grease:


    - Five strips bacon doused in cinnamon

    - One sliced chicken sausage

    - One sliced seafood sausage

    - Three eggs

    - Steak, chard, and kale off my wife's plate

    - Romaine salad topped with whitefish caviar (caviar turns out to be an amazing salad dressing. You don't need much and it's great for your raw animal quota.)

    - Three servings of thawed, cooked shrimp, each dipped in the oil from the skillet that fried the above

    - Protein shake with almond milk

    - Two more doses of salmon oil or cod liver oil

    - Four squares of sugar-free chocolate dipped in almond butter


    Day "B" Breakfast: IF

    Day "B" Lunch: IF

    Day "B" Dinner: Like Day "A" Dinner, but possibly even larger


    Eating this way, I lose fat like it's melting off my body while gaining muscle.


    I'd like to evolve to be more like Tarlach in my eating (more exotic, nutrient-dense meats, fewer incidental carbs and non-primal things like protein powder and sugar alcohol) but I'm pretty happy with the way my diet is for now.


    On the exercise front, I do a 30-60 minute urban workout every morning (see my comment on Mark's front page post today for details). I always save time for 15-20 minutes of shovelglove when I get home. (Check out www.shovelglove.com. It's the only weight training I've done for weeks and it's loads of fun.) At night I usually do a bit more casual shovelglove just for the fun of it. Also, I have a 15-pound infant whom I carry around constantly.


    I keep meaning to do Tabata sprints and chickening out. I do get some nice spontaneous sprints in during my urban workout, though.


    Hope this helps! I'm happy to share any more details that might interest you.

    Oh yeah, my weekly routine is just the above times seven, except that I take a rest day about once a week (not by the calendar, just by listening to my body) when I limit my exercise to walking around a lot and light shovelglove.


    I should also mention I'm big on opportunistic exercises. For example, every time I'm alone in an elevator I bang out as many pushups as I can. When I'm in the car, I use a handheld gyroscope exercise ball to get me through traffic. I sprint to my car in the parking garage. When I'm standing in line at the store I do calf raises, et al.


    I also do my exercises as underdressed as I can get away with to heighten the fat-burn-for-body-warmth effect. Also, I have become a huge fan of exercising in direct sunlight as opposed to indoors. Sorry Wii Fit... I've outgrown you

    Thanks a lot Timothy, that's great to see how you are working the IF into your routine but still eating plenty to fuel your body. Appreciate it.

    My pleasure, TigerJ. Restraint at the dinner table has never been a talent of mine, so I am relieved to have discovered that under the PB, my voracious appetite can be a strength!
