I'm on a rest week from the gym, so we went bowling today (for "play" per primal blueprint) and now we are going to go for a walk at the park. Just a gentle walk, nothing that would count as "cardio."

Daisy, I highly recommend Primal Blueprint. I'm going to tell my trainer I want to keep eating this way for the rest of my program. When I reach my coveted 19% body fat, I am going to see if I can add in red wine, dark chocolate, and dairy in the form of greek yogurt and a small amount of cheese. I can see living like this forever.
your plan sounds good. I will get the book. I wish I had a trainer.

I'm feeling a lot more paleo/primal this week... had a short fast, doing some IF and planing a longer fast later this month. Been eating VLC with all fresh foods and have my eye on some organ meats at Kroger...

My trainer is expensive, but he's taught me a lot. I've lost 10% body fat in four months. Now I am ready to get to the next level...I want to be lean. I never been there before, so I'm excited about it.

There are a lot of good exercise ideas in the Primal Blueprint book that you could incorporate on your own.

We're back from our walk at the park. We played on the swings and climbed on some of the equipment. It was pretty fun...reminded me of the "play" part of the Primal Blueprint. I'm so attached to my computer that it's good for me to get outside and just do someting fun.

I did IF successfully two years ago. I stopped doing it when I was in a relationship with someone and felt it was too difficult to keep my window. I can easily see myself eating within an eight hour window and perhaps one day I'll get back to a six hour window.

Right now, my trainer has me eating six times a day, but I wouldn't mind maintaining by skipping breakfast and not eating at night. We'll see what happens when I move into maintenance.

Hi dasiey and welcome. Some of us are following Kurt Harris's PaNu nutrition guidlines. Check out his blog site. Lots of good info and links to other great sites. Just google Panu.

Louis--what organ meats are you eyeing? I've thought about this but like the raw meat deal, I'm not sure I could go there. Kinda makes me feel like Hannibal Lecter... I'm sure they are very delicious but I can't get it from my brain to my mouth for some reason. I like liver and onions but brain and onions? Or tongue and onions...I just don't think I could. I'm dying to know how it goes for you though since I'm too big of a chicken to try....LOL

It's beautiful in it's simplicity, Daisy. It seems pretty easy to me, but that may be because I've been monitoring my food so closely for sixteen weeks now.

You can mix and match any of this stuff (from Primal Blueprint)
all meats
eggs
all vegetables
all fruits (watch out for the higher glycemic ones)
healthy oils and fats (like olive oil, coconut oil)
nuts and nut butters (but not peanuts or peanut butter, it's actually a legume, not a nut)
herbs and spices (I personally watch out for salt)

Don't eat
sugar
grains
processed foods
diet soda/artificial sweeteners
dairy (it's acceptable to add this back in, if you tolerate it well)

You could eat/drink (once at your goal weight or if you tolerate it well)
a couple cups of coffee a day
a glass or two of red wine a day
a square or two of 75% dark chocolate a day
whey protein powders

To lose weight, eat under 100 carbs a day, maybe under 50.
To maintain weight, eat 100-150 carbs a day.

Plus, if it seems hard to get started, you can take baby steps. Eliminate soda. Then sugar. Then grains. Etc.

Thanks for this thread! I don't do challenges, but I'm absolutely convinced this is the way to eat. When I was VLC or ZC, his menu closedly matched mine.

I was pleasantly surprised to read his blog and become acquainted with this Dr. I'd never heard of him or PaNu til now.

I will check in from time to time to see how this challenge progresses! Thank you again, it was JUST what I needed this weekend.

I also love the "how to get started" page on the PaNu site. A really really good way to get into paleo nutrition, with 12 simple steps to follow.

Daisy, have you exercised in the past? Do you have a gym membership? What do you like to do? Weight training is really a good choice with many positive and healthy benefits besides *just* changing how you look.

The forum on the PaNu site is great too. Some very knowledgable folks with lots of different info and experiences.

I've been reading alot about hypertensive drugs. Thought the one I was taking now was ok but I've come to find out that both agents (its one of those combo drugs) in the drug contribute to insulin resistance and hyperlipidemia!! That really pisses me off since I struggle so much with this. I will be contacting my doc tomorrow to get this changed asap. I'm so fed up with MD's.

I like this program but wondered if there is any flexibility at all with very limited grains in the diet? I have some dietary restrictions for medical reasons and am trying figure out if adding a small amount of high fiber grain here and there would basically ruin the plan. What do you all think?

What are your restrictions?

I would say no to the grains...they cause a lot of problems for many people. But I guess you'd have to balance that out with your medical restrictions. If you were going to add a grain, you could at least add a gluten-free grain, like rice instead of wheat? Also, Mark Sisson (PB) espouses an 80/20 rule...if you could make grains less than 20% of your diet, it might be okay?

Just my thoughts on the subject. I'm not an expert on this way of eating yet.

Read the PaNu site and Dr. Harris's blogs. Some very excellent info on grains.

Some people use psyllium for fiber, personally I have found it to be not nearly as necessary as I used to think. Depending on your medical restrictions though, you can't ruin anything by doing what you need to do.
