    Traveller - have the best weekend karate-ing.
    I wonder if you need to up your carbs - just a wee bit ? I get quite down if my carbs are too low. Just a thought
    keep smiling, and 56% - thats a pass !!!!!!! yay for you !!!!!!

    Sugarbare, thanks so much, I really appreciate your imput.

    Gwamma: thanks, I will!
    Yes, I've been wondering the same thing. Yesterday I had a total of 47 grams of carbs. I'm not obese, or even overweight so maybe I should up it a bit. But what do I eat to do that? I miss banana's, but they also have a lot of sugar.
    56% may have been a pass, but I'm going to do a lot better next time. But thanks.

    You could eat more kumara, or more veges and fruit in general. Although I find its a fine line between too many carbs and not enough. For me - too many carbs gives me cravings !
    Play around with your carb intake, and you will work out what is best for you.
    At the moment I am trying to have meat and vege 2 or 3 times per day. If I am hungry at any stage I have an apple.
    Good luck

    Thanks for the advice, Gwamma.

    I've just been on paleotrack.com, and apparently my figures for today are: 13% protein, 81% fat, 6% carbs.
    Now I just need to find out if this is good or bad.

    Day 38

    Hi all!

    Lunch: 3 scrambled eggs in olive oil, walnuts and brie. Cup of tea.

    Small amount of macadamia nuts, 2 kiwi fruit.

    Dinner: Large-ish amount of roast chicken (with skin), cauliflower and spinach. With a dash of mint sauce.

    Total for today:

    Protein - 20% - 80g
    Fat - 66% - 120g
    Carbs - 14% - 58g

    Exercise: 2.4 km walk, and 1 hour of karate. Lots of gruelling exercises. I love it.

    If anyone sees anything wrong with my macros, could you tell me? E.g. too much fat, carbs etc. Because I have no idea.

    Bye!

    Traveller.

    Day 39

    Hi all!

    Breakfast: cuppa with CO and honey.

    Lunch: leftover chicken and spinach.

    A few more cuppa's, turmeric and earl grey. Bit much honey I think.
    1 kiwifruit, small handful of pinenuts.

    Early dinner: Greek yoghurt with small amount of honey.

    Confession: chocolate.
    A line or so of milk chocolate. Didn't have any dark.
    My family has been pressuring me about something, and it made me feel a bit stressed, so...

    Also, went out with a few friends today and predictably they stopped off at Mcdonalds for a 'sugar boost'. I turned it all down easily enough. In fact, today would've been great if I hadn't had that chocolate.

    Tomorrow's the seminar! I'm a bit nervous. Always am before something new.

    Total for today:

    Protein - 22% - 51g
    Fat - 57% - 60g
    Carbs - 22% - 51g

    923 calories.

    Bye!

    Traveller.

    Good luck for your seminar. Don't sweat the milk chocolate, it wasn't much.

    It seems that you haven't really had a meal today at all unless your chicken leftovers were very large. Are you sure you're eating enough, your food doesn't appear very substantial to me.

    In fact, I just noticed your calorie total (my eyes usually focus on the food but glaze over the figures) and that really does look low. Please don't be afraid to eat plenty of real food at your meal times.

    Yes, yesterday was quite low, and by bedtime I was hanging around the kitchen even though I wasn't technically hungry. I didn't eat, but I wanted to.

    I concur with this! You are active in karate and I am guessing fairly young, I would suggest going to a website that calculates your bodies daily calories needs so that you get an idea of where you need to be daily.

    I apologize I wish I could provide you with a link, but I forgot it. Keep on keeping on!
