eating plan & pics
Tuesday, September 17, 2013
I'm really motivated right now. It's true that what's in motion stays in motion and what sits still, stays still. I have 22 days now of eating primal foods (real food). I think I have an idea of what the 80/20 principal looks like for me. It is allowing one treat of bread and one treat of sweet per week (IF, I want it!) Having this specific guideline really works well for me mentally. And that is oh, so important to me. The mental part has to be on track.
My protein/fat/carb ratio has been looking like this (except some days the protein is much higher than the fat - the fat and protein kind of alternate, but the carb has been staying about 30-40%):
Since I have PCOS, it is medically recommended that I eat high fat/low carb and I cannot believe how much better I feel! I am eating good fats, not junk. I even made it through my period WITHOUT going nutso on sweets! That has NEVER happened before. Ever. My calories have been like this:
This way of eating is leaving me very full. I don't binge. I have high energy. I completed my training last night and felt awesome. I'm sleeping good at night, too. That's a good thing. I feel like I am really "on the beam" so to speak.
Also, I did just a short walk on the way to work this morning. Yes, in my flip flops... I was running early to work, and just thought some fresh air would feel good!
