Day one, still in IF since 8pm last night . . . waiting until a late lunch today to eat.
People have always told me how you have to eat breakfast to get your metabolism furnace going, but I rarely eat it anyway. I find that when I eat breakfast I end up eating more calories over the day, because my lunch and dinner meals stay about the same size regardless. I know that on Primal calories don't count for much compared to macronutrients, but I am also trying to lose weight, so I'm careful with my calorie count as well as my macronutrients. Try to stay under 100 carbs, and under 1500 calories . . . though for this week I'm trying to stay at or below 50 carbs every day.
I've planned my whole week of menus out and without the carbs I'm having a hard time even reaching 1,000 calories - but I don't think I could stomach any more food. Which is impressive - I look at the meals I've planned and they all sound very filling.
I'm off for my walk with the pooch - another part of this plan is that I walk at least a mile every day. That should be the easy part, because I love walking - it's my favorite form of exercise. (I'm sure it's why I lost a little weight during my semester abroad, despite eating sweet & sour chicken from the Chinese restaurant across from campus about 3 times a week)
