If you haven’t read “In Defense of Food" or "Omnivore’s Dilemma" by Michael Pollan yet I highly recommend you do. I also really enjoyed "A Place of My Own”. Anyways, check out this link to read some of Mr. Pollan’s articles if you want a taste of his writing style.
Not at all. Had a brunch of steak, eggs, and fruit. Only cheat was a mug of hot chocolate after going out walking all day (was nice and sunny out but also quite cold). Still contemplating dinner but it will likely be steak and salad.
I’m a strong advocate for cheating on a diet. Specifically, having a cheat day. Today is that day for me - though I’ll probably play a little fast and loose with “today” as I am planning on a plate of Panekoeken for tomorrow’s post-clubbing brunch. Anyways, don’t expect the next 24hrs of food posts to be very paleo-friendly.
Trevor over at Crossfit Vancouver came up to me today and said “You can’t walk away with all the money from the last challenge and not participate in this one”.
Last summer I entered a paleo challenge at the gym and in five weeks lost just over 30% of my subcutaneous bodyfat and about 25 pounds (243lb to 218lb) of bodyweight. This was enough for me to take first place in my category.
Fast forward six months and I’m right back to where I started. And then some. Weighed in this morning at a hefty 248lb.
So tomorrow I start. I’ll take some before pictures when I get up. I’ll get my measurements taken at the gym before my workout. And I’ll stop “snacking” on 2L bottles of coke and tubs of Häagen Dazs.
I’ll also blog the entire process. My weight and bodyfat on a daily basis, the food I eat, and the workouts I do.
