    Day 7 of 21

    Primal Fuel
    Day 7 completed and finding the food delicious and easy. Still waiting for energy but nausea settled and feeling slimmer. Resisting urge to weigh myself and told hubby to hide the scales from me. Carbs are at about 50gms with fat at 70. Note my potassium intake is low according to my fitness pal. Will get a banana tomorrow. Trying to avoid fruit.carb flu seems to come and go and worse if carbs go under 30gms.

    Good to see that you are keeping at it. 70g of fat seems a little low if you are lowering carbs that much. What was your protein intake like?

    Hi Icarian, thanks for the reply and encouragement. I seem to stick around the 70 gms for protein. Am having eggs and veg with bacon or chicken for breakfast, salad and tuna or chicken for lunch and usually a steak or similar for dinner with veg. I did eat a couple of huge steaks on two days but then I read that I should only be eating meat the size of my palm. Bit confused and any advice gratefully received.

    Could always add a sweet potato to dinner, it will up your carbs a little but it might also up your energy.

    Thats about 1100 calories/day. Is that enough for you?
    If you want to keep carbs low, up the fat (for energy purposes) and then the protein to get more calories. You should feel better then.

    Or fatty meats. That's my favorite way to add both.

    Leaner meats and fat trimming are important if you're eating industrial raised meats with all the contaminants that go with that. Look for a nice, juicy, grass-fed steak and eat the whole thing, fat and all. I like mine rare with just the outside seared. If you pair that with a salad of lettuce (skip the iceberg), carrots, celery, tomato, onions, kalamata olives, some walnuts, sunflower seeds, raisins, and some dressing made from olive oil, sea salt, thyme, black pepper, a squeeze of lemon, and capers, I think you'll find yourself nicely satisfied and sans headaches. At least it works for me.
