10 August. Day one.

Posted in Diet, My Program by eatingpaleo on August 10, 2009

Let’s see..

Woke up at 9:30.

Went at the gym at 10:30, did the classic chest and biceps followed by 10 min of HIIT.

After an hour I ate this:

200gr catfish and 300gr springbeans

200gr catfish and 300gr springbeans

Next meal (after 4 hours):

3 large egg omelet

3 large eggs omelet

With every meal I had a big portion of this:

2 large tomatoes, 2 large cucumbers, 1 onion, olive oil and vinegar

2 large tomatoes, 2 large cucumbers, 1 onion, olive oil and vinegar

Nutritional breakdown:

999kcal/ 65gr prot, 56gr fat, 71gr carbs, 21gr fibre

Fasted for 18 hours.

I’ll write about intermittent fasting in the near future.

The Plan..

Posted in Diet, My Program by eatingpaleo on August 10, 2009

So, the plan goes like this.

I’ll try to do my best and post everyday about what I ate that day and what exercises I did. As you already figured out, I will follow a  primal diet, I started it 3 months ago, but not 100% clean.

I know this is not the best way to go, when I’m in.. I’m really in. It’s all or nothing, I guess it’s not the best way of handling things, but this really works for me. Everything is planned out and prepared, the meals, the exercises. I will make primal recipes and share them with you.. it’s gonna be fun 😛agenda

Regarding the exercises, it gets a little tricky. Technically since I’m following the Primal Diet, I should be doing the Primal Exercises.. the classics.. I will try to make as many bodyweight  exercises as I can, but I can’t go further – living in a match box (aka apartment), in a big city doesn’t come with many opportunities when it comes to wildly training. I will have to think about some goals though..

My theory goes like this: As long as you always keep moving, you’re good.

The diet..well.. meat, fish, eggs, vegetables, nuts (not a big fan of fruits) This is what you’re going to see in my future posts. I will focus more on the lean protein and unsaturated fats, omega 3’s, such and such (less animal fat). It’s not that I’m against fat (Hell no!) but, i just started reading Loren Cordain – The Paleo Diet and in the first chapter he describes why the paleo diet it’s not just a low carb diet, but I will talk about this in other entries.

Wish me luck… I’m going in! 😀

Starting next Monday..

I love this expression… starting next Monday 😛

Seriously. This is the reason I started this blog in the first place, since my life changed a bit (more) and a lot of changes took place, I had to change my diet (evil forces), well.. I didn’t have to, but it was more in my comfort zone to do so. In other words, it was easier for me to follow a “normal” diet, still low-carb, but with more cheating days (to say it nicely). Bottom line is that I gained some weight, not too much, just enough to make me wake up. Therefore, what I’m going to do is this:

I’ll write in this blog whenever I can about what I ate that day and what exercises I did, I’m gonna try to take a picture with my every meal. I’ll write the nutritional breakdown and comments when it’s needed. Intermittent fasting and whatnot.

At the same time I’m going to write about articles I recently read (scientific) and all kind of things I find intriguing– all of them related to the primal diet.

“Talk” to you soon..
