Miscellaneous / Eavesdropping on food orders
« Last post by abbot on November 24, 2014, 08:07:19 AM »
This morning, as I was sitting in the local coffee-shop drinking my black coffee, it occurred to me that I really ought to start secretly recording people's food orders. I'm seated next to the counter and a middle-aged lady came in and just ordered a cheese danish, a chocolate scone, and a non-fat latte. Because, you know, clearly the fat in the latte is the unhealthiest part of that order.

She was overweight. Not morbidly so, but I imagine that may be in her future. I think there needs to be a new common sense rule made: if the breakfast item you are eating could, in a different context, also be dessert then it probably should not be eaten for breakfast. Or ever, really.

Sorry for the rant...

... the Paleo (I hate calling it a diet) lifestyle.
...
Tina  ;D

Welcome!

That's exactly how I feel, too!
It's a lifestyle, not a diet!

danipr86, how much water are you drinking, over the day?

I start early mornings with up to a liter of lukewarm water, ... that gets the system working!  ;)

During the day I drink between 3 to 4 liters of water, I bet, you're not drinking enough!

Indy, not necessarily.  It depends on what and how much you eat at those two meals.

Right!  :)

I mean, keep a food journal in the food journals section here, so people can offer more informed advice.

Note that the body can convert protein to carbohydrate, so if your meat is too lean, you can end up not getting into ketosis even if you don't eat carbohydrate directly.

Welcome.

The headaches are normal when you start strict paleo.  Once you've adapted to burning fat instead of carbohydrate, they go away.

Hi everyone.

I have just recently started on my Paleo Life change.
I have been so concerned with weight loss and dieting for the past three years that I obviously wasn't thinking straight.

Its not about losing weight, its about eating right !!!  So I googled and googled and googled one night and I just couldn't stop reading about the Paleo (I hate calling it a diet) lifestyle.

I am now on day five and wow I feel great,  im full all the time and without blowing my own horn I have dropped 2kg, without really trying.

I did have a couple of days where I had headaches and the past two days my muscles seem to be aching a little.  Is this normal???

I have really embrassed this eating style...maybe not perfectly yet,  but I couldn't help but tell my teenage children about it and my 15 year old daughter is happy to switch over to a more healthy diet.

My meals so far today have been.

2 x scrambled eggs with Coconut milk,   drizzle a little olive oil -  omg yummmmmm

1 tin of tuna for lunch with a fresh homemade garden salad.....again yummmmmmm

I am still drinking 1 - 2 cups of coffee a day which I really want to give up and I will...but at this stage its baby steps.

Tonight for tea, im doing zucchini slice (almond flour and no cheese) im really looking forward to it.


So just wanted to put my first post up...im sure I will learn a lot of things from this forum as I go along.

Tina  ;D

I do keep a food journal. And I don't cheat.

I've done the ketostix too and have only ever gotten just the faintness reading of ketosis, despite being under 15g (gross) of carb a day.
