    David, I'm definitely eating enough to where I'm not hungry, but I'm having a problem finding a good program where I can list what I eat. I tried FitDay but definitely was not impressed, especially with response times. I tried another program called Cronometer.com, but not sure I'm impressed with it too much either. What do you guys recommend? I currently have a WW account and they have a pretty good food DB and tool, but this is the last month that I will pay $18 to have it. These programs really help me quite a bit. Cronometer has a paleo scale, but it seems they don't have alot of foods in their DB and it's a little clunky.

    Hmmm, veggies at breakfast.....what do you recommend? The only time I have veggies for breakfast is when I eat an omlet at work, I usually get a Western, but at home during school days my wife always fixes eggs and bacon.

    Non exercise day

    Breakfast: 2 eggs scrambled, 1 piece of bacon, water

    morning snack: cup of joe with 3 tablespoons of International Delight creamer

    Lunch: Salad plate with lettuce, cucumbers, tomatoes, cheese, black olives, 1/2 cup cottage cheese 3 cubes of pineapple with 4 tablespoons of balsamic vinaigrette

    afternoon snack: small apple and a handful of red grapes

    Dinner: Maybe 2oz of leftover venison, 1 1/2 cups of steamed okra, and about a cup of something my daughter put together, something like a taco bake (corn chips top and bottom, some tomato, cream of chicken soup and chicken chunks)

    after dinner snack: 1/2 teaspoon of cashew butter (that will take some getting used too) and a sliver of coconut oil (I think I'd rather rub this on my face than eat it )

    If I make fried eggs, I always make some fried tomatoes on the pan as well. Otherwise I eat bell pepper, leftovers from dinner etc.

    Lots of people here use Paleotrack.com, obviously Paleo centered. I've been using Fitday for awhile so I am used to its quirks.

    Breakfast with veggies is EASY, though mine usually involve having eggs.... A spinach omelette. Or one with roasted peppers... Or, and I have done this twice ( but I allow myself some dairy ).... get some BIG Anaheim peppers. Cut the stem of and take out the seeds if you don't want them.... Stuff it with COOKED bacon and cheese. Put in the oven at 500 degrees until the peppers get nice and charred. You will have to keep them vertical while cooking so they don't ooze out all of the cheese.

    I also scramble eggs with chopped asparagus.

    These all sound super good - I'm going to have to try a few of these. Any advice on how to keep the peppers vertical while cooking them?

    Alright, so this morning I added a few things to my normal fare. I added bell pepper and onions to my eggs (I know, not much but it's a start and it was an easy addition), I've got to plan these meals out more and have stuff ready to add as I'm usually in a hurry in the mornings.

    I tried this this morning too, probably a teaspoon. Not sure I really cared for it too much though. I still had to add a little flavored creamer and I put it down, but just not sure I can stick with this.

    I can't do the coconut oil in the coffee either - it does not taste right to me. A handful of almonds adds some fat to the diet as well, or you can cook your eggs in the coconut oil. I found that shortly after I started this lifestyle I started to prefer my coffee black, and my steaks a little more rare - not sure what the connection is. I know a few people who get their fat from drinking cream instead of milk but again I can't do it. There are lots of ways to get the fat intake up.

    Well, here is what transpired today.

    Food:
    Breakfast: 2 egg scrambled with onions and bell peppers and 2 pieces of bacon, water
    Morn snack: cup of joe with 1 tablespoon of coconut oil and 1 tablespoon of creamer
    Lunch: Don Pablo's Chicken & Steak Fajita w/lettuce, cheese, guacamole, tomato (also about 10 chips to dip in queso blanco), water
    Afternoon snack: handful of almonds
    Dinner: 2 small chicken breasts and nice helping of Brussels sprouts, 1 cup of applesauce, water

    Exercise:
    Set 1: 18 push-ups, 40 squats, 1.5 min plank, 20 sit-ups
    Set 2: 18 push-ups, 40 squats, 1.5 min plank, 20 sit-ups
    Then 18 more push-ups and 1/2 mile walk

    I hope to add in pull-ups next week

    Pretty good day, although I felt a little guilty for eating so many chips at Don Pablos. This is a breeze really, wish I could convince my wife to join me....maybe in time.
