So, here it goes.
Ive already controlled a recently acquired IBS, by cutting almost all grains.
Now i want more. Semi primal and IBS control is not an excuse anymore.
im starting a thread on my own to post my daily menu, evaluate, and either celebrate or take some actions.
Good steps forward: tis summertime, and still it has been almost 3 weeks that i havent bought stone fruit. I only eat a couple of dark choc squares per serving. I only have a single orange and a cantaloupe still lurking around.
Will consume leftovers then reevaluate before going grocery shopping.
Another accomplishment: the only dairy i have is heavy cream and a little goats cheese, no more cottage cheese, no more yogurt.
Will also reevaluate before buying again! Only if gut requires a little good bacteria, although constipation is not an issue if veggie intake is high enough.
New goals: no more heavy cream! since i have almost no indulgences (dark choc isnt as appealing as it used to be), i usually turn to espresso+cream, sometimes one splash, sometimes much more.
Will reevaluate before buying again!!
Must keep stock: dark choc (not a threat anymore since i no longer overeat, only a couple of squares), bacon, eggs, leafy greens, two or three types of vegs. Must keep around only one type of fruit.
Must evaluate right (for me) carb intake. This past few days i realized that with veggie intake, comes carb intake, and the 50g per day makr is largely surpassed. I rather go near the 100g per day mark, than restricting good veggies. Will post conclusions.
Measurements have gone up, surely due to lack of discipline. Too many cheats. Not acceptable anymore.
Ill try and post daily (im cancelling my cable subscription, Tv addiction must stop!).
With respect to excercise: Must increase more frequent slow cardio workouts. Home pushups, 20min or so walk and small weight lifting is no longer enough.
Train willpower, stay disciplined... Despite all of this: MUST Have fun!! See the world, sweat a bit, get dirty.
PS.- Having fun also means to go out with friends and if primal is too difficult given the social environment, then splurge and the next day immediately go back on track!
