Hi Pam,

I find the tracker useful for observing my macros nutrient ratios. I don't track every day, but a few times a week just to see where I am falling on the carbs/protein/fat scales.

I just ignore the dire warnings of imminent health disasters that pop up when my fat is 65% and protein 20%.

I don't "count" calories, but I do find my daily caloric intake is between 1,500 and 2,000 most days, and that is using an eat when hungry protocol - just what I naturally need to fuel my body.

Keep tweaking and finding what works for you.

Stay Strong

One thing I have discovered is that I cannot use the Spark Nutrition Tracker - what they're saying is "healthy" is what got me to where I am now! So I am just not tracking at all, except to make sure that I eat healthy protein and fats, lots of veggies, lots of water.....and staying away from the processed foods as much as possible!!

What you do after you go off-plan is the most important thing - we all go off plan at times. I try to use the off-plan times as a motivation to try and go longer until the next off plan event. If I can keep extending the times, eventually I will be always on-plan.

Stick with it, it is an adjustment, and I does get easier over time.

Stay Strong

I "fall off the wagon" sometimes too. I just try to start fresh the next day. Here is my big problem, I can absolutely gorge myself on ice cream and baked goods and suffer no ill effects. I feel guilty, but no physical ill effects. I don't get sick, I don't feel sluggish or bloated the next day. I WISH I would feel sick, maybe then I could convince myself to not ever eat bad stuff.

I think forgiveness would be one of the traits implied here. Especially self forgiveness. I saw in another thread that you are relatively new to this (as I am) and this is an adjustment.
I am also very surprised by my lack of cravings for bread/pasta and other "normal" foods. I have done Atkins before and that was a major issue then.
Continue your journey as reward yourself with good foods and treats!

Pam, For some reason pizza is my weakness too and unfortunately my husband loves it.. Hardly anybody is 100% Paleo so give yourself a break. I know in the last few months I have learned what triggers me. My family can have chips and cookies to their hearts'desire in the house but if they have frozen yogurt I will eat the whole container:)

Also, I bet you don't feel as physically good this morning as normal? That's what has helped me really limit my treats.

Back in the saddle!


Sweat is just your fat crying!

We had pizza last night - thin crust, but I still feel guilty as all get-out! The good thing is - it taught me that I can live without it......getting back on the Paleo horse this morning!
