Thread: Started Out as a Normal VLC Day...

    Totally agree that VLC primal can help folks heal from unhealthy eating habits. *raises hand joyfully!* The key word is heal. In all healing, there are setbacks. This was a setback, not a return to your old ways.

    Be good to yourself! Vent for sure, it's healthy. But know you can *heal* from this with time and determination and a deep love for your own health.

    I sound like a kook, but I don't care. It's a long journey for some of us and we need to be reminded to love ourselves a little bit.

    All you hunky 2% body fat young dudes feel free to roll your eyes at me...but maybe take your shirt off first!

    Hi Lawyerchick. Moving on is the most important part - don't forget that you might be hungrier than usual for the next 48 hours or so, and plan plenty of great eats that fit with your own specific plan. My go-to at times like that involves extra coconut oil and some bacon!!

    Tried basic primal and almost everything else in pursuit of IBS control, mood stability, and weight loss.

    "Unhealthy relationship with food" is far too harsh. What if it's cortisol from non-Grok stress?

    Lawyerchick, if you're on 30 g carb, that's a HUGE improvement over the constant hard-candy snacking!

    I'm thinking many you need an occasional carb day? 30 g is hard to sustain day after day after day after day. Just call it a "carb refeed" and start again tomorrow.

    I've been slipping very badly myself, and have the bloat to prove it. And I'm not on VLC; I'm trying to stick to about 80 g carbs. I have to start again tomorrow too...

    Some days I am just hungrier than others. And some days I am not. It sort of seems to work itself out. I try not to eat non-Primal, but it happens. There is the 80/20 rule. I strive for 100 but know I sometimes fall short. And when I do, I just decided that I have to accept the consequences, bloat and all, and not bitch about it. (not saying you are, I am talking about myself) I just have to accept it and move on. I am learning that sometimes it just isnt worth it.

    The first time I actually carbed it up, was going out to eat after months of being a good girl, and weight loss slowing down, and after that episode, I actually lost weight.
    65lbs gone and counting!!
