    recording my newly primal life

    Primal Blueprint Expert Certification
    I've been consistently eating primal since Dec 31 2012 but I haven't been tracking my calories or macro-nutrients that well. On random notebook pages I've been scribbling what I've had to eat which I later have looked back on, but I feel like it's time to keep better records.

    So here's my journal. I'll do my best to remember/record my diet and activity level.

    Overall health is my goal. I need to lose weight, gain muscle, and balance my hormones.
    I want to have children one day and I'm afraid I won't be able to, or in the least that I'll have tons of complications. And if I'm lucky enough to have children, I want the energy needed to keep up with them.
    I've also had some problems with depression and anxiety. I think a lot of those issues are b/c of my diet and out of whack hormones. Which is kind of great actually, b/c I've had tons of doctors tell me "You'll probably be like this forever, who knows why". But I think I know why. And I think I know how to fix it.

    I've already lost some weight after I started primal, but I'm going to start my journal with where I'm today:
    Height 5'10'', Current weight 220lb. And my weight is mainly around my middle.

    Woke at 7am.
    At 8:30am I drank a tablespoon of coconut oil and I've been drinking water this morning.
    10am, 1 cup coffee, 1/2 tsp local honey, 1 tblsp heavy whipping cream
    2 eggs cooked in bacon fat, 2 pieces bacon

    6pm: round steak. 4 carrots, half onion, half red bell pepper roasted in olive oil and sprinkled with feta cheese.

    7:40ish - 2 squares dark chocolate, 1 tblsp coconut oil, a few almonds

    hot water with apple cider vinegar.

    no more food for tonight.

    I figured up some goals last night. These will might change, but I think for right now they are pretty good ideas of what I should be eating:

    Calories: 1700-1900
    Fat: 150 grams
    Protein: 70-86 grams
    Carbs: no more than 39 grams


    70%, 25%, 5%

    Thank you.

    I'm at 39" around. I lost about an inch in the first 2 weeks, I'm assuming b/c I wasn't so bloated from grains and sugar.
    I'm excited to see that number go down.
