Week three of Paleo


Monday, February 04, 2013

I am the worst when it comes to sticking to a diet. Three weeks ago I started on the Paleo Diet starting with guidelines from Whole 30. I am finally back to my posted Sparkpeople weight. I worked my tail off this past summer to get under 180. Then I gained it back.

I think I broke the plateau with these dietary guidelines. This past weekend I did not eat the candy or desserts that were all over a party I was at. I did not eat pizza for lunch when helping a friend move.

So I am doing well. Tonight I made mayonnaise for the first time using egg yolks, olive oil, coconut oil, lemon and Dijon mustard and then added it to chicken salad. It was so good!

This is really working out for me. I've dined out a few times and it was doable. A little worried because I am going to a conference in Phoenix this week. I need to plan ahead and be prepared especially for breakfast. emoticon
My running shoes and music will be packed. So will the excitement of breaking through my plateau. emoticon

    We're whole foods, clean eating, and plant-based. Still a tiny amount of dairy on occasion, and we still use eggs a couple of times per week. But when 90% of your diet is whole plants - fruits, veggies, nuts, seed, beans/legumes, and whole grains - it's usually pretty easy to lose weight. Tons of fiber, almost no fat, and very low calorie. Not to mention all the phytochemicals and antioxidants. Healthy stuff!

    Awesome! I really enjoy a lot of Paleo recipes, but have never tried strictly doing just Paleo. I may give it more thought. Any recommended sites for good info?
