I'm a 32 year old female, would like to drop about 20 pounds and new to Paleo. I was wondering if anyone could give me feedback on what I eat in a day. A little background...I was pretty much completely Paleo for a month having only two cheat snacks in that time. Once the month ended I justified eating non-Paleo more frequently and for the past three weeks have been alternating between Paleo/Non-Paleo days. The non-Paleo days always start with a healthy paleo breakfast and derail from there. I would really like to be more consistent and have cheat days only if there's a special occasion or something. Is there something I'm not eating that I could include to help with this? Sometimes cheats happen due to cravings and sometimes because I feel insatiably hungry. Here's my Paleo day diet (eating the same thing every day doesn't really bother me, not looking for variety necessarily, just consistency).
Breakfast--One or two eggs depending on hunger, fish oil pill Throughout the day in varying order: 1 chicken breast cooked in olive oil and garlic 1 Avocado Celery with 2 TBS almond butter 1 Green Pepper Snack before Crossfit (I do Crossfit 3-4 times a week): Mixed nuts and a handful of blueberries Dinner (After Crossfit)--Protein Shake--1 1/2 cup almond milk, i cup mixed berries, 1 cup spinach or broccoli, whey protein powder (not paleo, I know) Dinner (Noncrossfit Days)--Salad with two large scoops of tuna
I should mention that I started Crossfit about two weeks before really jumping into Paleo and have no problems sticking to the above on Crossfit days. I spend all day looking forward to it; I'm not going to screw it up by eating badly beforehand. How do I keep that same focus on nonCrossfit days?
