I've decided to go ahead and jump in on the primal WOE starting now. I actually ate a pretty primal dinner last night, and I just really enjoy eating that way.
I already have a fridge full of grass-fed, local meat, eggs, and dairy, as well as fresh, yummy veggies.
I think my biggest problem will be getting away from sugar-free syrups/sugar subs and I don't think I am ready to experiment yet with honey. And I'm still not ready for fruit, but I was never really a big fruit person anyway.
I want to keep my carbs around 5 for now, but will increase when I hit goal (or maybe before if I can get up enough courage to try a bit of honey and homemade yogurt).
I plan to check in here regularly, and I am headed to my kitchen to dump the processed junk now!

Changed my mind again. I just saw a really good deal on organic molasses, and I am going to keep it in my pantry and play around with adding no more than a tsp to anything I want to sweeten. And I am going to use the culture and HWC to make yogurt. So I am going to say carbs at 10 or below everyday.
I guess that's ketogenic primal?

Sorry that I keep wavering, but I keep thinking of things AFTER the editing post period is over.
I'm going to use stevia instead of molasses for now because I am a chicken. I think that in a nice 1/2 cup serving of heavy cream yogurt is a good place to start.
This doesn't seem like a daily menu/weigh-in thread, so I think I will start a blog for that. I will keep checking in for inspiration, tips, and recipes!

Hey Qurlybee...I still use stevia even whilst eating primal as I do a fairly LC version. I find that a combination of honey or pure maple syrup and stevia/erythitrol is a good way to have something sweet without overdoing it on the natural sugars.

Easing your way into it is a good idea, I did the same thing. I slowly added back in good carbs firstly from veggies and then slowly with some fruit. Then I started adding honey and things back in for a treat.

I love my homemade greek yoghurt too, it's delicious with a bit of stevia/honey, organic vanilla essence and frozen berries I also use a bit when making a berry smoothie with coconut cream and almond milk. It's super filling and keeps me going for hours.

Don't forget that you do whatever makes your body feel good when it comes to primal/paleo and don't let anybody tell you what the 'rules' are because there are a lot of 'Paleo Police' out there that try to convince you that you HAVE to do certain things. Use your body as a guide and find out what works for you

So glad to have you here BTW... and I might see you over at the M&E thread from time to time too no doubt

Using the combo sounds like a really smart idea!
Similarly to you, I am focusing on the veggie carbs right now. I don't know that I'll ever get back into fruit, honestly. I just don't seem to like it all that much. But I will be more than willing to make up for it with veggies!
My culture and heavy cream are coming tomorrow, so I think I am going to try making my first batch this weekend. I will use the stevia and vanilla for now, and when I'm less chicken (which, who am I kidding, probably won't be until after goal), I will start experimenting with the combos you mentioned.
You're the best, tashy! And I am definitely popping into M&E!

Hey Lil, I love meat and it sounds like you have enough to get you through the next year

Sorry I haven't been around much...have been lurking but haven't really had time to post. Just cruising along at the moment and have maintained my goal weight for quite a while now.

I haven't dropped anything on the scales but have managed to lose a few inches from bust, waist, and hips by experimenting with my exercise regime. I'm not sure if you've read about "chronic cardio" that Mark Sisson talks about but I have made some adjustments and found it to help immensely with my body tone and shape. Here's what I've done:

* increased how much I move in a day and try to be more active in general
* reduced cardio workouts from 50 min sessions to 25 mins at a time
* workout 4 or 5 times a week (25 min sessions) rather than 3 long workouts of 50 mins
* have been doing high impact interval training (HIIT) i.e. 7 min workouts, 2 times a week (1 or 2 x 7 mins workouts per session)
* changed any weights sessions I do to be lower weight, higher insensity/repetition and much shorter sessions.

They really are only small changes but it has made a big difference in the last 6 weeks and I'm actually feel like I'm doing less Anyway it gets a big thumbs up from me

Hope everyone is doing well. Hi to Terri and Qurlybee and all of the lovely lurkers out there Happy losing everyone....

Have been gone for a while but I learned that I definitely canNOT consume honey/molasses/maple, etc yet. I gained a crap ton of weight experimenting with those, so it's back to stevia for now until I can figure out my perfect amount. I will be doing M&E to get back to my pre-primal weight

paleo

Tashydoll,

I happen to also be on the paleo diet. Actually, it's a modified paleo. I'm diabetic so it works well for me. I don't do a lot of "recipe" meals as a rule...just eat pretty simply.

I actually like those Atkins meals which are a bit pricey. But mostly I eat grass-fed beef and chicken, lots of nuts, avocado, turkey breast, Greek yogurt (Fahe w/stevia!), deviled eggs, green beans, peas, broccoli, kale salad with shredded carrots. Very rarely, I eat black beans with some salsa. I even eat peas for breakfast...only 1 cup as they can add up carb-wise. I have not eaten ANY bread, rice, potatoes, pasta or cereal in I don't know how long. Not really missing them.

I'm one of those annoying people who can eat very plain food and do a lot of exercise just because it's good for me. Have a high tolerance, I guess. My son's autistic and my mom has Alzheimers', so other "hard" things pale in comparison!

Actually I love "Moksha" Hot Yoga... very chill..hehe as in calm, unlike Bikram way too hardcore with some teacher yelling at you for the whole 90 minutes, it's just not my thing.

As for my goals.. can you say 'hamster on a wheel'? I've spent the better part of a week mentally beating myself up for not "progressing" in any way shape or form. I now know that I am my own worst enemy So I have decided to take the advice of a friend and start from the beginning as if it was the beginning and I hadn't failed multiple times. Wish me strength

New reciepe

I am ready to bow down and worship myself.

I've been playing with the one minute muffin reciepe for ages and this morning DS4 requested 'toast'. I decided to try making it in a frypan with some melted butter since toasting the microwave version has never worked well for me. it 'toasted' nicely and resembled french toast so I had a play and OMNOMNOMNOMNOM. I had to take a BIG leap of faith and use maple syrup which I have been a feared off no matter how primal it is

And now I bring you....

French Toast
1T coconut flour
1T almond flour
1t BP
1 egg
1T olive oil

Mix together and pour into a small cast iron frying pan, in which you have melted a tablespoon of butter. Cook one side, flip and cook the other, flip onto plate, spread or dot with some butter.

Take a ripe banana - one of those that is starting to get brown spots as a) they're sweeter and b) MDA says they have a better nutrient profile than 'just turned yellow, still almost green' banana's. Mash the banana and spread over the toast. Evenly tip 1T maple syrup over top.

Hide from your family while your eating

I did it, I did it, I did it!

I made hot cross 'buns'. I took the below almond flour muffin reciepe and added 1 cup of fruit I had dehydrated so sugar free (lots of orange rind) and a tablespoon of mixed spice with added cloves and mixed in. Then I blended cream cheese with HWC so it was a bit runny and piped a cross on each one. Bake as usual and yummy! Hot cross muffins

here's my current favourite. I note: I have been replacing half the almond flour with sunflour because its a lot cheaper where i live. I think it makes this a bit more moist and knocks back the almond taste a bit.

Almond Flour Fruit Muffins

2 cups almond flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
125gm butter, melted
4 eggs
83mls (roughly) water
Sweetener to taste equating about 1/3 cup. (Honey, stevia, splenda...)

Preparation:
1) Preheat oven to 180 C/350 F.

2) Grease muffin tin, or prep 12 muffin cases

3) Mix dry ingredients together well.

4) Add wet ingredients and mix thoroughly (You don't want strings of egg white in there and you don't have to worry about "tunnels" when you are using almond meal).

5) Put in muffin tins (about 1/2 to 2/3 full) and bake for about 15 minutes

Variations:
Add 1c fresh or frozen blueberries

Or take a teaspoon of sugar-free apricot jam on each muffin and push it in slightly (it will sink more during baking).

Or add up to 1C dried fruit

Easy Cheesy Sausage Loaf

500gm sausage meat
chopped and diced onion
1pkt onion soup
1/4 c Tomato paste
about a cup of cheese cut into cubes salt and pepper

Mix all ingredients excluding the cheese. Pack about half the mix into a casserole dish and lightly press the cheese into the meat - doesnt need to be buried. Cover cheese layer with rest of meat mix. Bake 180C for 30-45 mins. I crush pork rinds and sprinkle on top for last 10 mins for added crunch as flavour. Serve with salad or veges. Really good with grain free gravy. Really, really good the next day if you double it.
