I think so. Something about fueling your body with protein at the start of the day revving up your metabolism and making your hormones function more optimally?

One challenge at a time lol! My brain doesn't multi-task well
I think "mastering leptin" is the book title most of them site as the source.

I found this, and I kind of think it's funny because it says not to eat large meals yet you're supposed to get 50g protein at breakfast (a 10oz steak in the morning would be pretty large!)

Quote:
1. Never eat after dinner. Finish eating dinner at least three hours before bed.
2. Eat three meals a day. Allow 5-6 hours between meals. Do not snack!
3. Do not eat large meals. Finish a meal when you are slightly less than full.
4. Eat a high protein breakfast.
5. Reduce the amount of carbs eaten.

they say not to exercise either..
Im not sure I could do that.. I honestly would rather fast in the morning.. and not eat untill lunch
Maybe for a week I'll try to eat a huge breakfast before I leave for work and a light lunch and dinner and see how I feel..
Thats alot of eggs! lol

I'm making chicken liver pate later. Saw a recipe that had bacon and mushrooms in it, that sounds interesting.

oh thats one of the great things about ny.. always roasted nuts on the corner.. even though I can't eat them lol

I must say making your own nut butter is amazing. I have a chinese grocery around the block that sells raw nuts and the prices are outstanding (to me anyway)
I get a pound of raw almonds for 5.99 and a pound of raw cashiews for 6.99

next im going to get pumpkin seeds (shelled) and unsalted and make a spicy pumpkin seed spread.

oh and I wanted to add, I made the ceasar dressing in my magic bullet and it came out thick like mayo. We had to spoon it out..
the ingredients were 1 raw egg, few cloves of garlic, (i didn't have lemons so i used acv), pepper, a can of anchovies in oliveoil, and olive oil.

So im totally curious if I can make mayo in there.. I will have to try it.. I would love some tuna salad!

How are you guys feeling mentally, emotionally, physically--do you notice any chances having cut out all sodas, salt, butter, cream, etc that you think you can attribute to the paleo diet yet?

I feel great. The only big changes I've made are dropping dairy (and yes I miss cheese!) and sweeteners.
Oh and adding fruit, I have a peach or apple or grapefruit each day.
Plenty of energy, sleeping soundly, minimal hunger. Since food choices are pretty straight forward, not as much time spent in food prep and recipes.

Thanks.

I don't know if you guys were hoping to lose weight or if that was even one of your goals while doing Paleo, but would you share if you've you lost any?

I just had to have something in my coffee, so I added 2T of the aroy-d coconut milk. After having black coffee for weeks, it was a nice treat and the coconut milk has a bit of natural sweetness (also helped get my calories up for today!)

Dottie I'm do excited we are half done with the month! It's going fast! I love this way of life, I'm really debating adding back dairy when it's done, I don't think ineed it, or sweetners.

I know Kerry! It's gone by fast
I'm going to add stevia back for sure, lol. But I am pretty happy with coconut milk in coffee from the little I've used, since not having half and half, it tasted pretty good!
I never ate a lot of cheese, maybe an ounce a week, but there are some dishes where cheese would be a nice addition. Like a sprinkle of parm on spaghetti squash w/meatballs and sauce! And butter or ghee, I just like the richness of taste they add.

B: coffee
D: stir fry of shrimp with green onions and romaine with a little fish sauce. Probably coconut oil as the fat
S: pot roast w/zucchini and tomatoes(just steamed together)
