First two days......how do these meals look. Some input please
Guys, Need some input. Tell me if this is OK for a primal start.
Protein Shake with tblspoon olive oil
3 Hard boiled Eggs
3 cooked eggs with bacon
handfull of cashews
2 grad fed beef patties topped with provolone (i know the cheese isnt strictly primal)
1 cup of brussells sprouts sauteed in bacon and butter
3 eggs with bacon
2 hard boiled eggs
protein shake w/ olive oil
6 scallops fried in nutter from grass fed cows.
1 cup brussels sprouts sauteed in bacon and butter
both days MFD has the calorie count at around 2100
is this a good start....or go with more.
my goal is weight loss
Are you hungry? Do you wait for hunger before you eat? Do you eat until satiated/satisfied? Are you snacking, and if so, why?
Everything but the protein shake looks primal to me.
*My obligatory intro
There are no cheat days. There are days when you eat primal and days you don't. As soon as you label a day a cheat day, you're on a diet. Don't be on a diet. ~~ Fernaldo
DAINTY CAN KISS MY PRIMAL BACKSIDE. ~~ Crabcakes
pretty much have just been eating when hungry...... no real snacking. last night the strawberries and nuts were snacks.
yeah i dont like the protein shake. its in there for convenience. Im actually not going to have the shake today.
instead im going to have some grass fed beef because my calories were only 1100 on fit day without it.
is the cheese allright to include. ive heard mixed things
I see eggs, bacon, fruit, nuts, meat and some veges and cheese. All sounds primal to me.

3 eggs, 2 slices bacon----breakfast
snack-----1 orange before a 2 hour gym session
post gym----handfull cashews
lunch-----1/4 cup cottage cheese, 4 strawberries
dinner......5 butter poached scallops, 1.5 cups brussel sprouts sauteed with butter and bacon
3 eggs with 2 slices bacon
2 mile walk to store
lunch cottage cheese and straw berries.
dinner: 2 grass fed beef patties topped with 1 slice smoked gouda and s side of asparagus.
i ate dinner early so i had a snack.....cottage cheese and strawberries.
both days over a gallon of water a day
Yes, I figured as much.
Ill only have cheese once a day, when I have grass fed beef(which isnt every day)
strawberries onnce or twice a day, and maybe an orange before i go workout, just to get an energy hit.
here is the thing. Ive been getting under 2k calories for the past 5 days....under 50 grams carbs....well under. And I havent been hungry. even after workouts. Should I eat more for the sake of it, or if it im am feeling satisfied, just go along with it
Today My meals:
breakfast-----3 eggs, 2 slices bacon 1 once smoked gouda
lunch: chicken tenderloin strips fried in butter with a sauce i made that i think works in primal (creme frache, dijon mustard, vinegar, and cilantro)
snack.....2 hard boiled eggs and an orange.
2 hours in the gym
dinner: 2 grass fed beef patties with smoked gouda, a cup and a half of brussel sprouts sauteed with butter and bacon
glass of red wine after workout before dinner
