Week 1 of Primal is in the bag
Monday, March 28, 2011
And the results were not what I was expecting. I felt like I was losing weight by the end of the week, but I ended up 1/2 lb. Boo.
I know I don't have to count calories following this way of eating, but I tracked some days to see where my macros were falling. But my calories were waaayyy up there some days. And on those days I felt stuffed! I knew I was eating too much and I was also having some wine a few days. So I don't blame the diet, I only blame myself. But I have to admit, I was disappointed in the scale. I kept my carbs low and except for the wine ate strict primal. So I went looking for answers.
I found a link to this article on MDA and I think it's exactly where part of my problem lies.
Too much fat in my diet. Well, that and alcohol lol.
I'm going to tweak the diet and stay AF for 7 days and see what that brings.
Even though I wasn't happy with the scale, and have only myself to blame, a result like that would normally send me back to a CW diet. Or weight watchers, or find me binging on all the junk I could find. But I'm sticking with this eating style because I believe it's the right way to eat for me. I know what I did wrong last week, so I can fix that this week and get the scale moving in the right direction. My knees feel fabulous, and I have lots more energy which is huge on it's own! Here's to a great week!
