    Doing a great job with the IF. emoticon

I was not 100% primal today since I had some tortilla chips, but still not a grain so not too worried. Made up for it by having a grilled chicken salad for dinner.

Have a great weekend!

    The walk home is the aerobic adventure, right? How'd the IF go? I had an accidental mini-IF today.

  Best of luck. I do not do very many carb's and some days it is hard to keep on track.

    Sounds yummy, Dee! I've recently discovered the joys of cottage cheese myself. It sounds weird I know, but I put 1/2 cup on top of my spaghetti sauce at dinner and it added bulk and a nice creaminess - didn't mix it up, just did half and half spoonfuls. Yum!

Oh, and I've discovered that if I put 1/2 cup cottage cheese in the food processor with some crushed garlic and dill to taste that it makes an excellent dip for veggies... Almost reminiscient of hummus (in texture, anyway). I'm too lazy to add the spices to my log but you'll see 1/2 c cottage cheese and veggies in a meal and that's what it is (like today!). :)

    Is it just you guys or is it over at the website too? I will have to check. I have done so poorly lately and the past week I am claiming bad diet, too much helping hubby with house renos and I am sadly thinking walking has all accumulated to my back being very sore in that one specific vertebra. So calling physio and massage and see when I can get in.
Good luck and enjoy. I am reading Living Low carb by Johnny Bowden who rates a lot of diff. low carb plans. Interesting read.
Have a great start to your challenge!

    If you do get a carb-flu (like trish said) fight through it. It only takes a few days to get past it and you'll feel better than you ever had! It is so worth it.

The Primal diet is the best things I've ever done for myself. Please let me know if you need any help or pointers. i've been primal for 2 years (100%, 95% of the time..lol). I fell into a teeny, tiny weakness yesterday though.

I have an amazing protein pancake recipe (using cottage cheese) if you want it. I could eat it every day and i think it has like 45 grams of protein!

  Good luck!

However, if you are not used to eating very low carb, you might want to go into this play gradually. I've heard some people that tried to suddenly lower their carbs get what they call "carb flu" where you can feel sick while your body gets used to functioning without having the usual amount of carbs available.
