Many thanks Meljane. Good luck to us both!

Day 2

Breakfast - 2 apple and leek sausage square patties fried in ghee.

Lunch - leftover mulligatawny soup (using bone broth) and 2 boiled eggs with a dash of sea salt and pepper.

Dinner - prawns in paleo mayonnaise with huge salad (tomatoes, spring onions, lettuce, celery etc etc)


I still feel fine today. No signs of the dreaded carb flu. I was a bit weak and shaky around 4pm but I had just had coffee beforehand.

I've noticed that my short (but hardly acted upon) temper was nowhere to be seen today. Usually I can feel the red mist descend over trivial things, but not today. This suggests that the nasty carbs induced mood swings? I'll keep a mental note of my temper!

Thanks Warren Dee.

I am 6 foot 2. I know that I am particularly heavy. Some of that is down to my height, and some of it is down to my muscle weight training. I recently completed a 12 week push-up program and my chest exploded 3 inches!

I know that muscle and height is only a portion of my weight though. My absolutely ideal goal is 220 lbs which would be perfect for my height and muscular build. This while 30 challenge should hopefully be a major stepping stone in getting there.

Unclebricka - sounds like a good start.  Keep it up!

Out of curiosity, how tall are you, if you're willing to say?

Welcome.

To help with the eczema, minimize carbs and use saturated fats - animal fats and coconut oil - for fuel.

Finally logging in. Bubba just turned 1 , my weight has continued to swing between 60 - 62 ( although I'm often weighting at different times of the day wearing different clothes, I'm pretty slack about it ).

I have decided to do a serious 30day cycle, its been a while, not eating while out is challenging especially with kids, but I feel I'm ok. I was a bit sad when a group of friends were talking about BMI and told me according to it I am overweight. Maybe thats true but I don't feel overweight, way to make a tired mum feel more shit about herself lol...well keep track.

I had aimed to get down to 60kg 12 months after, it was a easy manageable target and I feel I did well to not pack on pounds. I'd like to get down to 57ish . My babe is on solids now, she pretty much eats what we do and is breastfed, no formula so I think I am mindful of not being too hard on my body while she is feeding.
She does so multiple time during the night and day, which is normal but my weight is going to fluctuate according to when she last fed. I only just returned to my normal moon cycle so I feel like now there are some changes again within my body and I need to adjust according to its needs.

I'm going back to some small work outs a couple of time a week, this is along side my normal activity ( I'm fairly active in the garden building veggie patches etc).

I'm currently researching short workouts i can manage around my baby. We still go for our regular long walks.

Research / Re: PBS/Nat Geo on the Paleo diet

Anyone see the National Geographic article lately?  Huge neat photos of various hunter gatherers.  It talked of them all eating whatever they could get, and preferring meat first and foremost (obviously).

Though confusingly it seemed they mentioned how often veggies etc were eaten if hunts weren't successful - seemingly implying eating JUST that is best ...
