    Congratulations on making a commitment to your health!!
    I'm not sure you're eating enough either.
    When I started this was a usual day
    2 hard boiled eggs
    Giant salad with meat on it
    Lightly sautéed veggies
    Meat
    A piece of fruit
    Primal Fuel shake

    Back then my exercise was walking

    I eat much more now but I'm also now doing CrossFit.
    The thing that has been key for me is that I'm not looking to lose weight, I'm looking at my health.
    By the way, I've lost 25 pounds

    Hi paleoqueen --

    I'm totally new at this, but I wonder if you're eating enough too. Your food sounds more like snacks to me. But you have to go with your hunger -- do you feel like you're eating enough? Are you satisfied? For me, it's a bit of trial and error, which I assume is normal for the first few weeks as I find out how different foods and different amounts affect me.
    Starting weight: 195.8
    Weight at end of 21-day challenge: ???

    Goal: To free myself of food obsessions and maintain a healthy weight without DIEeting

    Thanks for the suggestions and support! I don't think that i am really eating too little, i think it is because i snack quite a lot on nuts. I probably should try to make the meals bigger and to reduce the snacks. but i am getting full quite quickly and then i usually stop eating and need a some nuts later.

    Today is day 5/30.
    My energy is a little bit better today, i think my body is getting used to no carbs/sugar. but i had some headache in between and i feel that my concentration is not the best.

    B: Cauliflower salad w egg, avocado, coconut oil

    L: i missed lunch (we went to an exhibition),but snacked on quite a lot of cashews, macadamias, flaxseedcrackers, tomatoes, boiled egg

    D: zucchini-mushroom-almond-lasagne (it was DELICIOUS and made me very, very full!)

    Enjoy your sunday!

    Yesterday was a good day. I had lots of energy and felt great.

    Today i am super tired and I WANT CHOCOLATE! I am very close to asking my flatmate to give me some of hers!!
    It's crazy, i feel that my body and my conscious mind are somehow disconnected. I don't want to eat chocolat, but it wants to!
    I know that it's not good for me, i wanted to be very strict for the 30 days for observing beneficial effects on my PCOS symptoms. I know that, but there is a big voice in my head whispering: come on, just one little peace, it won't kill you, just eat it! just put it in your mouth, it's so easy and it tastes sooo good!
    NO.
    I don't want to surrender right now. i do it for my health, for my fertility, for my future.

    I had a great weekend. We went on a city trip for 4 days and i wasn't always easy to stick to my new way of eating, but i am very proud that i can say that i ate no sugar at all.
    Once i ate hummus, which i should not have eaten (no chickpeas) and once i had a tea latte with soy milk (i wanted to quit drinking soymilk), but the rest of the time i ate according to the guidelines of the whole30: no dairy, no sugar, no legumes

    i feel great and i am very motivated for the next week!
