Primal Journal (kandis)
I have, to this date, gone primal 3 times but each time fell off-program for various reasons (none of which are great excuses, but they happened. (1) I was studying for finals during my last year of law school; (2) I was studying for the bar and didn't have time to cook properly; (3) I went on vacation to an all-inclusive resort that had awesome desserts).
This time, however, I believe I have a better chance of sticking with things because I have a solid two months before facing any holiday temptations and should be able to fortify myself against that.
So, here we go!
Day 1. Limits: 50-100 g c; ~110g p; ~100 g f
coffee with creamer: 5c; 0p; 2f
medium whole milk latte: 18c; 12p; 11f
3 egg (2 oz.) cream cheese omelette: 3c; 22p; 39f
greek yogurt: 8c; 20p; 4f
coconut oil (2t): 28f
jerky: 4c; 18p; 1f
egg drop soup: 8c; 1p; 2.5f
moo goo gai pan (gf): 18c; 39p; 13f
grams used: 64c; 114p; 91f= approx 1531 calories.
grams to spare: 24c; 0p; 9f
Although I look forward to possibly not tracking so carefully one day, because I battle compulsive eating on a fairly regular basis that day is not today. During my longest stretch of compliance with the primal guidelines, I noted that the compulsions decreased dramatically so I am not without hope that given a year (maybe less) this issue will be in the past.
