Progress Report

Almost 5 months into Paleo or shall I say in my case Primal and I'm at my lowest weight (236 lbs) since I started gaining weight in 2006.  This is the longest I've ever stuck to any plan, eating this way is plain old easy for me.  Some people on my Facebook group have asked me what do I eat.  So here's a breakdown.

Now please keep in mind, I'm not 100% paleo/primal.  However, I don't eat grains, flour or added sugars.  I don't eat anything processed except these steaks hubby and I buy at Walmart, aside from that everything in my mouth is fresh either from an animal or a plant.  Also I allow myself once a day a square of dark chocolate and it's usually 85% cocoa but sometimes hubby buys the 72% and I still have a square of that.  I think those are my only sins on this plan, oh yeah and I have one banana every single weekday.  I work and my first break in the day I have a small to medium size banana as a snack.  I know bananas are high in carbs and sugars (natural) but I still have them.  I can only imagine how much I'd weigh if I didn't add the banana to my diet.

2 eggs
1/4 lb of bacon

Spinach salad
with avocado, tomato, chicken, one egg and shallots or onions. (no dressing)

meat du jour (i.e. chicken, steak, sausages, pork chops)
cauliflower (or broccoli or a spinach, tomato and onion salad) again no dressing.

piece of chocolate

3 times a week I do a Leslie Sansone 1 mile video walk away the pounds.

That's it, this is what's been working for me, no hunger, no cravings, I feel as though this is normal.  Maybe some diehard paleo peeps will find fault in it but this is what's working for me.

Quantities aren't mentioned or portion sizes because I try to eat a normal portion of everything (except bacon but c'mon give a girl a break lol)

Thanks for stopping by!

Thank you for sharing this with me. Your meals are very simple and I eat pretty much the same breakfast except I scramble with vegies a lot too. I have put on2.5kg since 1st September so sick of it. Looked at Lap band info today scared the life out of me. That's what I thought I might do now I have to make this work.
