7/30
...I didn't eat anything but water until just after 9PM, making around a 24 hour fast...

It was really pretty fun, pushing the limits. I didn't have any problems with energy, etc... 

When I fast I always get a bad headache.  I find that if I drink diluted juice throughout the day I can get by without the headache, but I guess that defeats the purpose of the fast?
Diluted juice is several cups throughout the day of 2 oz grape juice and 6oz of water.

Al, how many carbs do you usually eat?  Coming off of carbs and switching over to ketosis can give you a wicked headache.

I got mad when I found out that tomato paste usually has flour in it.  >:(

I specifically buy the store brand of tomato paste -- it's usually nothing but tomato.

8/1

For some reason I'm having a really hard time remembering what I ate yesterday.

Breakfast was
2 phily steaks,
onion, pepper
Probably a plum
2 slices cantaloupe
Most of leftover chili (lots), rolled inside 6 outer romaine leaves

Snack:
remaining chili

Dinner: (not very good, unfocused and drawn out. My dad was using the stove, so that confused me. :))
bacon, probably a plum, cantaloupe, grapes

8/2

Breakfast:
1 fresh onion
2 fresh green onions
Several slices portabella mushroom, chopped roughly
1/2 pound hamburger steak
fried with coconut oil
Also, cooked an entire  bunch of kale like you buy at the store, and ate the whole thing. OMG, I could barely get it down. I later discovered that it was a bit much cruciferous vegetable to eat all at once, especially combined with a lot of onion.
Cantaloupe

Snacks: fruit

Dinner:
Mom fried up some frozen (farm raised in china) catfish filets, in mixture of canola and olive oils. :X
Fresh asparagus, steamed, lots

Dessert:
frozen berries, golden raisins, honey. This is worth the carb cravings.

8/3

Can't remember what I had for breakfast, I'm sure it was something exactly like what I've been eating for breakfast every day. Too litle variety...

Dinner: Bono's Barbecue. Large 2 meat platter, beef and pork, collard greens and sweet potato(paleo?). I passed the Texas Toast to mom. Waittress was pleased to see a "young person ordering water."

Breakfast: Egg+Beef+onion, etc... Argh... Fruit?

Lunch: Huge salad, made of at least inner half of romaine head, half avocado, 1 stick celery, 3 medium carrots, some hot picante sauce.

Lots of berries, grapes, as snacks. Getting addicted again.

Dinner: 2 Hebrew nationals and canned chili. Definitely lots of non-paleo ingredients, but mainly paleo. Grapes


So hard to remember specifics. I might be getting burnt out on this logging thing. Anyway, I'll be going to school soon. I definitely won't want to continue this log, at least as active as it is now. It's going to be interesting adapting the diet to my school schedule. I'm in a fairly rigorous program with lots of extracurricular activities. I definitely will not be able to do quite as much cooking as I do now, and find less time consuming ways to get my food. I wish I could make some pemmican... That would be perfect for lunch, showing off to everybody. :) I'd surely have to dry my own berries, I couldnt' find any dried berries without sugar added. Suet would be hard to find in my non-urban location. I don't have a dehydrator, and the oven method looks a bit inconvenient.

8/5

Breakfast: hard to remember, pretty sure it was a standard onion, pepper, beef breakfast. I know I had 2 strawberries with it, though

Lunch: Most of a ribeye steak, grilled, with one and half grilled 1/4 pound hamburgers
Also, we cracked open a big watermelon. Throughout the day I ate over a quarter of it, probably a lot more

Dinner: 2 pan fried pork chops, with lots of collard greens and watermelon for dessert.

8/7

Breakfast:
All of leftover chili, (a whole bunch) with 1 whole romaine heart. Wrapped chili in the leaves and ate them. :)

Lunch:
2 leftover grilled 1/4 pound hamburger patties, with Mild Pace Picante sauce in between. I love this picante sauce, but it has salt and vinegar in it. I need to make my own paleo version of it.

Dinner:
3 larger 1/3 pound hamburgers, with large pile of broccoli and frozen berries

Ate 2 pound of beef today at the very least. :) I was reading some of Cordain's stuff on his website, and I'm a bit concerned about the fat content of my meat. All the hamburgers that make the staple of my diet are totally fatty. The chili and such comes from 80/20 ground beef, but drained a whole lot, so I don't worry a lot about it.

The fat in the ground beef could still be problematic. It's totally bad fat, based on the corn feed that the cows get. Someday I will be able to afford grass fed beef. Meh.

Had a bad craving and gorged on raisins. :(

You could do worse, L.S. - raisins have a very high alkaline content, which is good for calcium retention (avoidance of osteoporosis)..  I guess the downside of raisins is all the sugar, but if you only gorge occasionally, it shouldn't be a problem.  I think we've discussed before that paleolithic people probably gorged upon various foods as they came upon a plentiful supply, so it's not out of the realm of paleo eating to occasionally eat your fill of a particular food.

You probably know this already, but for those reading your journal, who were unaware of the acid/base balance in the body and its implications, take a look at this page:
