The three week mark?!
« on: April 30, 2016, 05:21:17 PM »
Hey everyone!!
I've noticed a disturbing trend that I feel is really holding me back in terms of my diet/health
Every single time I try and go paleo I stick with it for 2-3 weeks and then I end up bingeing out on things like bread/fake peanut butter/jelly/crackers etc.. And this always lasts a few days and sometimes spirals into weeks of feeling like shit and eating foods that are horrible for me
I don't think it has to do with not eating enough but perhaps it's just unstructured eating causing this?
Btw in a typical day I eat:
B- 2 egg omellette w veggies and fruit
L:tuna or some other fish/meat w lettuce and a lot of fruit
D: some sort of meat w sweet potato, fruit
Snacks: fruit, almond butter, smoked salmon  (realizing I eat ALOT of fruit)
Has anyone had any experience with this and can offer some advice? Thanks!!

I ate a lot of fruit for my first few months on paleo, but I threw out all the nonpaleo food in the house so it wasn't possible to binge.

I will have those same temptations as I am on Paleo while my wife and children continue on with their everyday fare.  As I become more educated as to the why we should avoid certain foods, I intend to curb certain foods entirely in the household.  We all love Mexican food and the other night we went...they had their normal, I had a plate of shredded chicken, lettuce, tomato, and salsa... I made it to the other side without eating chips....a major victory..

I think that we, or at least I, have to look at this as a series of small victories...and keep stacking those victories and setting new goals right behind them to keep the momentum, there will be setbacks, but ultimately, the prize is ours to win...  Hang in there!!!

Good job avoiding the chips in that environment!
