Hello, I'm going primal tomorrow and would like to hear others share their experiences (especially women).
My current stats:
5"4, 20 years old
usually not hungry till noon
old habit of snacking that I am fixing
want to lose all stomach fat.
fully recovered from an 8month mental breakdown and binge eating.
30 day paleo challenge
I'm thinking of eating a light lunch and then a full dinner (moderate Intermittent Fasting)
I don't go strictly primal and I find it works well for me? (not a fan of hard rules)
I like paleo because I acquired a taste for fresh food that is actually food
Things I am ruling out:
nuts (I have had many nasty experiences with finishing a whole pound bag of nuts per sitting. So not healthy)
chocolate (mostly. I am taping up my remaining chocolate and only having some during dinner)
sweet fruit (during my binge period, even fruit could raise my BS. Sticking to berries)
Not trying to sound smug, but I am actually one of the genetically blessed, despite my old habit of having binged through most of my life (until recently). My dad eats grains and at 52 he has about 2 inches of stomach fat. Max. for someone who runs a mile per week.
But I want to get back to my old peak - When I was a 5"4 girl who could put away a full 3 course meal and eat with the boys.
okay, it's a bit dramatic but I definitely can be more healthy than now.
I am currently nursing a cold, and am milking the loss of taste to wean myself off chocolate and desserts. Today I had only 50g, which is good, for me.
Could you guys give your thoughts on:
