Primal Journal ~*BaconForTheWin*~
ok, time to get this thing rolling. I've been mostly Primal for almost a month now, down about 13 pounds so far. It's more than just weight loss though, I need to feel better and I do.
FWIW, a bit about me. 47 yr old female, physically active and tired of feeling like crap. Weaning myself off of Cymbalta and sleep meds, since none of them work for me anyhow.
so far today: 3 slices bacon, 2 eggs w/onion cooked in bacon fat and coffee. I LOVE my coffee
Good luck, but if you stick with it you wont need any luck! I am so addicted to dark roast ice coffee with cream, hasn't hurt me yet.
i just had to tell you that your username is awesome. that is all
thanks batty. I knew it had to be good to post here, there are such great user names on this forum. I've been reading this board since day 1, and I just recently stumbled on your journal. Thanks for the great read. Your progress is impressive and inspiring.

IF today. First time. The email said "skip your next meal" so I am. Not even a big deal.
I made this awesome recipe for dinner: NuttyKitchen but used sweet italian sausage instead of ground beef. What an amazing meal, and everyone loved it!
food break down for the day leaves me a bit light on the protein, 56 grams and I'm shooting for around 75. Skipped a meal and I just don't feel like eating any more today.
Thanks Mike and gottaluv

Reason: add picture
don't know why that picture won't show.
had dinner last night at 7PM and have not eaten yet. Does that count as IF? I want to go for a bike ride but think maybe I should have something to eat first?
morning BG was 85. Happy about that after seeing numbers too high recently.
can someone point me to a Cabbage Roll recipe? thanks

oh, just FYI, you used the message board codes as well as HTML tags. if you take out the [ IMG ] tags there it should show up

How do you get enough protein in if you IF or only have 2 meals a day? or do you just not worry about it on those days? I may resort to a protein shake later today.
