Yep, that's how much I've "released" thus far and I'm good with that. I haven't been this excited about a lifestyle change since I did the South Beach Diet. I'll give the initial kudos to the Fast Track version of BFC but the rest goes to the Paleo community and from here on, my posts related to food will reflect that. I have a ridiculous collection of cookbooks as you can see:
I ponder this because it may be, for me, no different than having those tempting "crap" food items in the house....I may be tempted to concoct a tempting sweet treat out of one of these books. Now, having said that, I am also doing some research online to see how I can modify some of these unhealthy recipes into healthier ones that are Paleo friendly. I have invested in two new books to help with my lifestyle and add some variety to the menu....I also am looking forward to having a near "perfect" Paleo Thanksgiving..."near" due to some must have's of the in-laws. I've already decided I'm cooking smaller quantities of their "must have's" as they do not eat left overs and I certainly don't want that food in my home any longer than necessary. So here are my new books:
One of my biggest "gripes" against BFC was that Jorge didn't provide any science behind his S/C ratio. On page 96 of Practical Paleo, Diane gives the carb breakdown! Needless to say, BFC max of 120 is TOO HIGH unless you are a serious athlete. The latest news in sugar is women should limit it to 5 teaspoons or 20 grams per day.
So, here are some pictures of meals I've eaten that have assisted in my thus far 16 pound weight loss.
