    Hi there guys, its really interesting reading how and why people are into Primal/ Paleo. It seems to take a lot of tweaking to get what suits, as it definatly isnt one size fits all. I like the idea of trying IF but I think if I did it it would be more of a natural process of an extension of the if ya aint hungry dont eat.

    I also have the situation a lot of others do too of having to prepare meals for others. If I lived alone I would rather have big lunch and snack early tea, but hungry kids and husband need a decent scoff at night, and as two of them are pretty anti "the stupid diet" its my only chance to feed em something I consider more healthy.

    Primal G - would love to catch up sometime and chew the fat (lol), cafe's are a big new excitement for me as while I have given up the muffins I can now drink coffee again and I feel like I've just turned 18 and can now buy a "big girl" drink when I get a coffee.

    my day 1 wasnt a day 1 as i still have to get thru the cheese. so i had... blue cheese omlette for brunch. steak and blue cheese sauce with cauliflower and cheese for dinner lol i had the last of the parmesan for a snack mid avo. so i am now down to enough cream for 2 more cups of coffee and that is it. grand daughter's birthday tomorrow so i will have to prob have normal coffee to keep me sane but i can happily dodge the cake and icecream.

    Just a note about my experience with IF - I can only do it if I'm really low carb and high fat. Because I'm currently doing VLC (except for carb-ups), I've found that I can just carry on and decide to eat when it's convenient. That's really new for me - I used to be the low-blood-sugar-queen, shaking and really nasty when I got hungry. Now when I travel for work I often don't bother eating til teatime. It's really intermittent though. I can't 'decide' to do it, I just don't work that way, lol.

    we are going whitebaiting after so there is that to look forward to. i'd happily be gnaw my arm off starving all day for whitebait in the evening. it has never reached the boring stage yet lol i have gotten to the point too with the sugar that i have made it this far that it would be a pity to give in. kinda like if you have given up smoking for 3 weeks, you arent gonna sneak out for a swift puff without it all coming crashing down again. actual lmao maybe i will have a cigarette instead then no one can lecture me about avoiding the unhealthy stuff!
