sukie's primal adventure into the future and beyond
hi all ,
im going primal after a weight loss boost on slim and save . have done just about every diet out there over the years and maintained for along time post ll 5 years ago but gained a whole big mess of weight whilst having my 2nd child and have spent 2 years now gradually loosing the weight bit by bit . the ss gave me a big kick up the but and got almost 2 stone off so im at a decent enough size to start training again soon , im going on my oh cruise ship in 2 and a half weeks so wanted to make the switch now as i feel i can stay reasonable well enough on track on board and have the energy to run while i have the free time to do it .so yesterday was a bit of a transition day between the 2 and today was my 1st proper primal/paleo day , im guessing it wont be particularly hard as im already in ketosis from sands so here goes , if you see anything in my diet not looking too good please feel free to comment , ill appreciate all the advise i can get , ive done so much reading on this and it just makes sense to me ......
br; left over paleo pancake with a little almond butter and half a banana on top, boiled egg.
lunch; salad with avacado and king prawns with lemon and olive oil
dinner;slow cooked leg of lamb with carrot , sweet potato and corgette. and served with mashed carrot and turnip.
snack 10 almonds and an apple
hope this looks ok
excersize 2.5 miles of hard core stomping up and down the hills on the school run.
Looks good good luck!
I don't really think ketosis is a massive part of paleo (sure someone will correct me) it's more healthy eating for life x x
feeling much better than i have of late , im waiting with baited breath how the tummy develops now im eating full on 'real ' food ' again , ive had such bad tummy problems in the past , been hospitalized with it twice because the pain was literally unbearable , tests up and down the whazoo with cameas down my throat and the lot , to be told its common to have non specific abdominal pain and basically learn to live with it unless i want to subject myself to even more invasive testing . the only time im pretty ok is when im doing tfr so im hoping with all the research ive uncovered regarding wheat/gluten ect and the massive problems it can cause will prove to be true and if following the primal/ paleo type template will possibly help .... fingers crossed xxx feel like ive eaten allot today but have been hungry and just small helpings at each meal times except at dinner time tonight where i had a large salad with my meal.
so food today
breakfast , almond pancake with nut butter and banana, small smoothie
snack ,avacado and king prawns
lunch, some mussels and prawns from mixed seafood pack but realised couldnt have the crab sticks !! naked bar

week 1 done onto day 8 , got a right nasty sore throat and fever. feeling poo :0( nice thing though is that normally it would be an excuse to go crazy and eat lots of crap, but wasnt hungry so just snacked on bits and bobs but would have been happy to go without but was a bit scared id get really hungry and go mad .

Seem to have kicked the flu like symptoms I had yesterday , just a bit of a sore throat left .
been discussing paleo/ primal living with hubbie on the phone and he seems quite keen to join me in my journey so that will be great .
anyway day 9 food .
brekki, left over black farmers sausage and cold boiled egg
lunch , some ham , piece of banana coconut bread with nut butter and hald sliced banana.
dinner,steak, garlic mushrooms and sweet potato wedges followed by a few grapes.
Wow thats an amazing loss for him , im sure my hubbie will have it drop off him aswell , he does as long as he commits to something , so not fair! :0)
Im loving the primal way , need to be a bit stricter i think but right now this is working fine for me , dont want to pile on the pounds when i go away to the cruise next week so im keeping it relaxed so that i can follow it closely on board.
not a great day food wise , very low on the actual meal front and light on the veggies but no great hunger to motivate me to cook a decent meal for myself.Wll try harder tomorrow:0)
So day 10

lunch , apple and some almonds
snack, naked bar
dinner , some roast chicken and tiny taste of gratin potatoes (literally a teaspoon taste)
