... these last couple of days have not been good in Paleo land!... I have been eating off the chart, I am not going to even mention what I have been eating, but know that they are things that I should not be eating, and why?????... because my progress has been so excruciatingly slow.
My 21 day challenge is set to end Tuesday, but I have actually ended it early and intend to just start over Tuesday as
... I need some encouragement, ideas, tips... whatever you can offer to help me understand "what the heck is going on!"... Here is a list of some of the foods that I have eaten this week, does anything stand out as a "RED FLAG"?
- Greek Yogurt: I ate this after dinner, about 3X's last week in the evening. 1 cup serving with 1/2 cup of fresh mango. Trader Joe brand: 270, 18 fat, 14 carb, 9 protein.
The mango had: 18 carbs... total: 32 carbs
Total for the day: probably around: 80... now that I see this on paper, I probably should not have even eaten this because dinner was about 400 calories. Total calories for just the evening was: 670
- Ate dinner and then a handful of pecans (probably didn't need the pecans, very high in calories) - AND - 1/2 cup Greek yogurt and 1/2 cup mango
I think the problem is: too many calories/carbs in the evening
PS: ... one of the things that I ate that was not paleo was a huge chocolate chunk cookie, more than one actually
... but I noticed about a half hour after I ate this crap that I got a cramp in my left foot. Hmmmmm, could there be a connection between me eating too much sugar and getting foot and leg cramps?
Please note however, that the days I mentioned I was getting the cramps when walking, that I was following the program. I think a new pair of shoes are in order here.
