    Introduction
    Hello! I am 19 year old University student and obese. I have always struggled with my weight, however I was never 'obese' until two years ago. I used to be able to run 5km, now I can't run 500m! I ate an awful diet of bread, potatoes, wheat biscuits, pastries etc. When I moved out of home, it got worse. Pizzas, fried chicken etc. I knew it was bad for me and I tried to eat 'healthy' but it left me drained and hungry - thus I would turn to the easy way out of take-out again. I was ADDICTED to soft drink, sometimes it was all I would drink - no water!

    I am now eating primal/paleo. I began the process about a month ago, being totally paleo for about a week. Not so easy to get the best organic meats, coconut oils etc but I have cut out all grains/breads/pastas anything with flour. Eating nothing but meat and veg, I naturally don't like many fruits so I don't tend to eat many (except for coconut, I eat that). I am drinking a lot of water and also milk (full cream, try to buy the most unprocessed I can find and afford). Milk is better than drinking soft drink in my opinion, so I am not too worried about it.

    I am now full all the time and no longer snacking! I eat when I feel like it, and lately that hasn't been very much.

    10th July 2012

    B: n/a

    L: n/a

    D: Pork Loin Chops (beautiful caramelised pork fat - yum!), Steamed broccoli+Cauliflower+Carrot.

    Exercise: Walked my two dogs seperately. Approx 20 minute walk each. Total 40min.

    Note: I am not intentionally fasting. Didn't eat breakfast and lunch as my body simply didn't want to. I felt extremely full until about an hour before dinner.

    Having some frustration with hubby on eating primal. He can't seem to give up his fruit juices and other sugary drinks. Has however asked me to make him lunch now, so at least he'll be getting two primal meals a day. Buying kangaroo this week for a nice curry or perhaps roo meatballs

    I think I'm making small but noticeable progress. My stomach feels less bloated and I feel happier. My skins looking better and I have lost a little weight, I am yet to get some scales though!

    Feeling fantastic had so much energy today - got up early even though it was raining a little and went for a few sprints and a long walk. Working on filling up some 3 Litre milk bottles with water to lift - I have no upper body strength AT ALL. I really feel like my stomach is sort of 'tightening'. The rest still feels jiggly :3

    18th July 2012

    B: Chicken Breast

    L: Tea with a little honey

    D: Cooking 3 chicken breasts (to be shared with hubby!) with tomatoes, bit of cream and mushrooms. Will probably add some avacado, squash and carrot on the side

    Workout: Couple of sets of sprints for fun. 25 wall pushups (noooo upper body strength at alll).

    Craving salmon at the moment but I've run out
