Hello! I'm starting a new diary on here to mark a new challenge. Im on day 4 of P90x and loving it.
Diet wise, I was on paleo from April to August, but am introducing (in strict moderation) a few non paleo foods. I want to find a way to lose weight, keep it off and be happy at the same time. I know it'll be a mostly paleo approach, but I don't want to feel guilty when it's not, so I'm not going to call it paleo. I'm on a mission to find my way of doing things!
I ate paleo up until a couple of weeks ago, but ended up bingeing on sugary food the last 10 days. I've been very all or nothing, so I'm easing up a bit and trying to follow these rules:
1. Between 2-3 litres water a day
2. Eat clean. For me this is not processed, no artificially low fat food, mostly based around veg, fruit, nuts, meat and eggs. I haven't totally cut out grains and dairy but eat them sparingly.
3. Exercise. I'm currently on day 4 of p90x and run a couple of times a week too.
4. Cheat! But no more than 3 x weekly and no more than 500 cals extra.
I'm currently trying to hover around 2000 cals a day, because I do 400-600 cals of exercise a day, and have struggled in the recent past with eating too little then bingeing. Have followed this for 4 days and feel great. Long may it continue!
