    Shrinki's Primal food diary

    Hello

    I came across the Primal way of eating reading a free kindle book that I'd downloaded. Having done Atkins for over a year in 2004, I vowed never again.... So have not really looked in to any other low carb diets.... However, when I saw that I could eat most fruit and veg whilst following the primal blueprint I was sold!!

    I am on day three, already three pounds down and enjoying the food :-)

    So I thought I'd start a food diary... I have also signed up to Paleotrack to make sure I am not accidentally eating the wrong food.

    Any comments/advice is welcome!

    Monday
    b - scrambled egg with tomatoes. Cherries.
    l - baked salmon with spicy mango salsa (chopped mango, red onion, cucumber, red chilli, lemon juice and coriander)
    d - burger with salad and xvoo/cider vinegar
    25 minute bike ride

    Tuesday
    b - scrambled eggs with tomato and chilli. Strawberries.
    l - avocado, Parma ham, buffalo mozzarella, xvoo/vinegar
    d - Primal recipe tomato soup and burger with Boursin black pepper, salad.
    70 minute walk

    Didn't know you had started a diary.

    Food looks good.

    I will have to take a look at the Paleotrack.

    Sweet potato you can have in moderation.What I usually do is have them for a week then have a week off them.

    Here is what mark says about them The Difference Between Yams and Sweet Potatoes | Mark's Daily Apple

    Also Are Potatoes Healthy? | Mark's Daily Apple


    Been maintaining under 9 stone on a Primal diet since Oct 2012.


    Commitment and hard work gets you there.

    You can 'diet' and still have a life if you really,really want to.



    Maintaining is easier than the losing.

    Your weight is not going up for no reason. It's going up because you consume more than you burn.

    117 days until Xmas.

    Hello!

    I read Mark's comments and gathered he was saying they're useful for post-workout etc. when more carbs may be needed. I think I will have them lunch time rather than evening and also maybe one week on/one off like you do - good idea!!

    Food last night was the chicken mayo salad but didn't bother with the berries.

    Food plan today:
    B - coffee (not hungry at all)
    L - I think I'll have a sweet potato with cheddar and leftover cooked chicken and salad. Yum!
    D - omelette or similar.

    Left my fitbit off after my shower at 4pm yesterday which is annoying as we walked quite a lot going to a local music festival.. Very happy with my increased activity and definitely exceeded the 3+ hours gentle cardio target. I didn't do any weight training though so will work in two kettlebell workouts (lots of primal moves) next week. Sprinting? Don't think I'm quite ready for 15 mins sprints yet but I do sprint up my three flights of stairs at least once a day!
