My Paleo Eating Journal

Day 23

Posted on: June 7, 2011

Breakfast: paleo cereal with organic wild blueberries and 2% milk; black tea with milk

Lunch: jicama slices dipped in almond butter

Dinner: tossed salad with tomatoes, avocado, walnuts, dried cranberries, oil (avocado) and vinegar (red wine) dressing

Dessert: one piece of 85% dark chocolate

Thoughts: I stepped on the scales today and the two pounds I gained during my period (which resulted in a net loss of zero that week) are gone now. So I think I can safely say I was still losing weight last week, but it was masked by the hormone-related weight gain. This blip in progress drew attention away from the fact that I passed an important milestone. I’m in the 140’s now (pounds), which is where I’ve always been more comfortable. Goodbye, 150’s! And let’s see just how low we can go!

The Basics

My way of eating is based on a Paleo/Primal diet and is comprised mainly of saturated animal fat (grass-fed meat, pastured eggs, butter), nuts and seeds (almonds, pecans, macadamia nuts, coconut, pumpkin seeds) and their oils (coconut oil, avocado oil) and lots of vegetables and fruit. I eat virtually no sugar (other than that contained naturally in fruit), potatoes or sweet potatoes, beans or legumes, and no grains or grain products.
