Having a serious paleo keto day. NO dairy. Over 80% fat. About 1500 cals
(B) 100g organic gluten free sausages & coffee w/15g coconut oil
(L) 110g mackerel fillet, coffee w/20g coconut oil
to have later.. a load of macadamia nuts
Yesterday was great until I binged on (mostly) dairy in the evening - cheese, milk, Greek yoghurt. Frustrated because I had great energy all day and it was so unnecessary. I feel like i massively tricked myself because I’ve been doing well recently so “it” (my primitive brain) caught “me” (my human, logical brain) off guard. If you’ve read ‘Brain over Binge’ you’ll know what I mean. If you haven’t READ IT!! Anyway, relative to “normal” binges it really wasn’t terrible and I stayed primal & didn’t eat any sugar! But I’m worried that the Greek yoghurt was too carby and has kicked me out of ketosis as I have a terrible headache today and feel very tired despite a long sleep. Anyway, I’m on the train back to London now and I don’t have any dairy in my room so perfect time to cut it out and commit to a more paleo keto. Need to commit to a meal plan for the rest of the week but oh the indecisiveness!

I’m in no way attracted to him and i’ve changed A LOT since I last saw him (several years ago) but still want him to think i’m cute ifyouknowwhatimean
Monday 31st April (yesterday):
About 1500 kcals. Drove up to Oakham where my grandparents live and went out for a long lunch with cousins etc. Had great pan fried scallops for starter, steak & salad leaves for main and enjoyed a coffee while everyone else ate chocolate cake for dessert. I was even offered a “gluten-free” sugary alternative but nothing could have persuaded me to deviate:) Dinner was leftover roast lamb from Sunday roast with veg & butter. It was a nice chilled day but I’ve got to get into gear with studying now arghhgg
20th April 2014:
1489 kcals. Today was the best day with food since I’ve been home home. Structured my meals well and got a good balance of fat & protein at each. After a breakfast of whey protein & egg pancakes, I had tuna salad with paleo mayo & olive oil for lunch, snacked on the odd tsp of butter/coconut oil/cream with a few olives, and dinner was the most delicious roast lamb leg ever with jus made from the pan, cauliflower & broccoli:)
Sometimes you’re 23 and standing in the kitchen of your house making breakfast and brewing coffee and listening to music that for some reason is really getting to your heart. You’re just standing there thinking about going to work and picking up your dry cleaning. And also more exciting things like books you’re reading and trips you plan on taking and relationships that are springing into existence. Or fading from your memory, which is far less exciting. And suddenly you just don’t feel at home in your skin or in your house and you just want home but “Mom’s” probably wouldn’t feel like home anymore either. There used to be the comfort of a number in your phone and ears that listened everyday and arms that were never for anyone else, but just to calm you down when you started feeling trapped in a five-minute period where nostalgia is too much and thoughts of this person you are feel foreign. When you realize that you’ll never be this young again but this is the first time you’ve ever been this old. When you can’t remember how you got from sixteen to here and all the same feel like sixteen is just as much of a stranger to you now. The song is over. The coffee’s done. You’re going to breathe in and out. You’re going to be fine in about five minutes.
My parents were so great and didn’t do the normal vast quantity of chocolate Easter eggs this morning (they gave my younger brother his before I came home). Instead they hid decorated hollow egg cases with some money in!! My dog Barley is so great and jut finds them all before us it’s hilarious. I made myself some protein pancakes & bulletproof coffee. Easter does NOT require chocolate!
