Diet and nutrition / What am I doing wrong?
« Last post by Czhey on August 23, 2014, 12:07:05 PM »
Love the idea of paleo, was a struggle changing eating habits that much but I generally managed!

Been 3 months ish now, a few days recently I just have not even tried as I've been feeling rubbish, for the first 3weeks ish I felt great, clear head and a spring in my step but that's long gone now!!

I feel tired and weak, especially towards the end of a day (even after evening meal) I feel foggy headed and sleepy/drowsy (nearly falling asleep driving)

I have a very active job, and an on paleo to be healthy, and more energy. If anything I want to gain weight (muscle) but if anything have certainly lost body day in the last few months.

A typical day now is
3eggs scrambled with coconut milk/oil and/or coconut water. Often with some spinach or red pepper in there, and with a handful of plum tomatoes. Often 2-6 pieces bacon if I have time.
A snack, raw carrot/red pepper/salad. Maybe some cold meat or something. Sometimes I don't eat at all between breakfast and dinner.
Dinner a hearty portion of chilli, burgers, chicken curry, a stir fry, maybe tuna steak, pork ribs or pork belly. That kind of thing. Usually with veg if I have time.
Some fruit or nuts throughout the day.

Before I ate:
Sugary cereal with coffee
Nothing all day except crisps and chocolate wtc, maybe a sandwich.
A take away dinner, pizza. Curry. Chinese. Sometimes something home cooked with chips etc.
A few beers In the evening.

I generally felt quite flat, and not very healthy, but not this drowsy feeling I'm getting now even if I didn't eat for a whole day.

I home cool everything pretty much, free range/organic where I can, no legumes, no dairy, no refined sugar although a lot of fruit to start with.

Any advice would be great :)

Dinner tonight:  rare steak for parents and Duncan; hamburgers for Martin; heart shaped hamburgers for Margaret.  Margaret is not totally on board with paleo but apparently the heart shapes make up for lack of carbs.

It was really easy too.  Brown the meat, transfer to crock pot. Chop veggies, transfer to crock pot. Add spices to crock pot. Add beef stock to crock pot. Let it go low and slow. Put cauliflower in food processor. Pulse until rice-like in size. Mix in spices. Put in fry pan. Add other ingredients. Cook until enough moisture evaporates to your liking. Stir every now and then. I had knee surgery in the morning (general anesthesia, etc.), and made the meat before bed, so that it was ready the next day. I made the rice in the late morning, and I had soup and "rice" for lunch. It was too easy.

To mix up from my daily gym regimen I usually practice some BJJ, Boxing and martial arts, although not a team sport it is a good workout.

Thanks!! If you saw my earlier post I have been eating that oxtail soup all week. :)

Sorry to hear that!

Get plenty of bone broth or oxtail soup, or at least vitamin C, in case it helps with rebuilding the connective tissue.
