    Right - I am going to get my wee thread back up and running - just to be accountable.

    I am finding it interesting to read some of the argumentative threads. Some of the criticism I find quite thought provoking - in a common sense kind of way. I have been at this since July of last year and initially I lost weight. However weight wasn't my only issue. Being unwell for three years was. This reversed so quickly I couldn't believe it, and now the only times I have really felt unwell are when I eat sugar/grains/processed food.
    So in some ways I must remember to focus on this huge positive......
    ...............however I still need to lose about 20 kgs.
    The question to myself is
    what was I doing initially that allowed me to lose weight ?
    Its time for me to pull out my food diaries and revamp...................

    ............... so I have analysed and digested said food diaries from way way back and have come up with the following.
    Many years ago I did a diet called sureslim, and it was the only "diet" that worked. I lost 10 kgs in a very short window - however I was forever hungry, so my old habits crept back in. As Otzi said and I hope he doesn't mind me quoting him
    "When you finally reach your goal, however you are eating when you do...that is how you must eat forever more to maintain that new weight.
    You can't diet your way down to a goal weight and expect to stay there if you start eating more. With that in mind, every little tweak you make to your diet needs to be sustainable long-term."

    So I think that Otzi has a very valid point.
    Gorbag also made a valid recommendation and once again I will quote "eat one pound of very lean meat or fish per day and raw and cooked fibrous vegetables ad libitum. Take fish-oil and multivitamin. " This is to lose weight quickly.
    So If I marry these two observations together with my sureslim success, I conclude
    this is how I was eating when I started my Primal journey, except with more fat. However I got bored, I deviated, I was nagged at..... all the excuses are irrelevant..... I need to get back on track !!!!!!
    So it needs to be sustainable without feeling hungry.
    The fat does satiate me for a longer window than just meat alone. And If I eat 3 cups of salad, or veges per day that also isn't alot of carbs on the MFP scale....... (actually depends what veges, but my 3 cups of green salad yesterday amounted to 10gms of carbs)

    hmmmmmmmmmmmmm ......................... let the games begin.................

    Great resolutions, G, good luck with your goal. It's good to reassess from time to time, and to realise how far you have come.
