stHi fellow UK persom
I personally have never counted a carb and don't intend to, I've gone from 19st 3lbs at the start of Feb to 15st 13lbs.Yo
Your diet looks fine, Dark Chocolate is perfecty fine IMO as long as it's in moderation. Dates are a bit of a sugar hit for me so they are certainly not a daily eat and I would rather go for real food than protien drinks, but some people are more pushed for time than others. I also don't snack anymore, and once you have been primal for a while a snack should become a rarity rather than a regual thing, if you need to eat between meals, then actually you need to eat bigger meals.
You know all those pictures of Adam and Eve where they have belly button? Think about it..................... take as long as you need........................
