Paleo Week 2...Getting Better Every Day

Thursday, September 29, 2011

While my weight loss this week was only .4 pounds, I feel my food choices were good and my exercise was moderate but focused. I still had some carb issues...like eating 3 sweet potatoes in one evening but overall I'm please with my progress and how I'm feeling!

Eating Plan:

1) Eat within one hour of waking up...still a hard one for me since I workout or run in the morning
2) Eat protein and fat with some veggies at every meal and snack...made beef jerky as take along protein snack
3) Limit fruit to 1 (or 2) pieces daily...doing better, dates only during LSD run, sticking to berries, melon and apples
4) No grain or legumes...doing better
5) Limit nuts to 1 oz daily or eliminate all together...none so far
6) No processed or refined carbs...finished the Veganise and did not buy anymore
7) No dairy...had whey protien in shake but no milk, yogurt, cottage or regular cheese!
8) 3 meals and 1 snack ONLY...still trying to regulate my evening eating but doing better

    Great stuff! If you are trying to avoid dairy, NutriBiotic Vegan Rice powder is a tasty substitute for whey. Just a thought. I know people say Whey is a fantastic protein supplement but I think the rice powder is pretty good too.
