    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

    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!
