I've been eating paleo for about 2-3 weeks. I have been VERY good about it.... except for a little bit of creamer in my coffee..and a couple of vodka drinks during the week. I feel soooooo fat and bloated!! I haven't weighed myself because I don't want to get discouraged... but I feel chunky monkey!! Im doing crossfit 3-4x per week... I'm 5'10, normally around 140 which is pretty thin for my build. I know Im up at least 10 lbs!! I really would care what the scale would say, but I feel like a fatty!!
Thanks for all the responses... As far as what I have been eating... for example typical day..all dressings dips I make at home and are paleo...
breakfast: coffee 1-2 cups with really sugary creamer (I know..but it's been really really hard to give that up), then maybe 2 hard boiled eggs and some kind of protein like a piece of salmon or a can of tuna with paleo mayo. I usually have some kind of vegi with that, like broccoli or bell peppers. (no fruit)
snack: some kind of vegetable, carrots or cucumbers, another hardboiled egg (without the yolk)
Lunch: some kind of big leafy green salad loaded with vegis with either chicken, salmon or turkey, with avocado and a homemade paleo dressing.
snack: same as above minus the egg...maybe a few cashews
maybe another snack at this point... something small, usually vegis
dinner: piece of salmon or lean pork..(homemade completely paleo) broccoli, cauliflower or some other kind of vegi
snack: perhaps a drink made with vodka and a diet lemonade mixer (I know, diet sodas are kinda taboo), some nuts, sunflower seeds, maybe another drink.. LOL!!!
I really have been eating very clean minus the nightime drinks and the morning coffee... I haven't been eating fruit because of the sugar factor... I even backed off the workouts a bit so I wouldn't be as hungry. The thing I have noticed the most is, I have so much energy lately, that I find it almost impossible to sleep!!! I have to literally force myself to go to sleep!!!
Im so frustrated... LOL!
