Day 3 – Food & Body Log


Last night to be truthful with you all, my head was pounding a little… now this could be diet related, or virus related but I have a feeling I had a bout of “low carb flu” while my body adjusts… my morning weight says it all as I was 236.8lb losing about 2lb in water weight over night sleeping!

I kicked the day off trying out the Coconut Porridge recipe (minus the whey), and i’m not sure if its because my ground almonds are really sweet or because perhaps my dessicated coconut was too sweet but it was pretty horrible to be honest. I’ll give it another try with some alterations… I also didn’t have the flax meal. My calories were nothing like what was calculated as you can see under Meal 1 below in the daily food diary, but the macros worked there-selves out in the end!

I then decided for lunch that I would try and recreate the Foil bag baked Chilli & Lime Salmon with stir fried veg that my other half cooked for me last night, my attempt wasn’t quite so tasty but hey it was pretty damn good.

I decided to start the training about 40 minutes after I finished tackling that plate and went for a long brisk walk and clocked up 5.1km in 52 minutes, I used to jog that in 30 at my fittest without problem (probably not impressive either but there is noway I could do that now, but soon!). I saw some pretty crazy houses in the new area I recently moved to, epic mansions but the pics don’t really do it justice in anyway shape or form, there was a whole other section or 3 to this building that was set far far back.


Anyway after that walk I did a few sets of press-ups and then some dips but my lower back is still aching from Day 1’s kettlebell training so I am going to have to start this slow which sucks!

Shortly after finishing after about 1 hour 20 minutes or so I made the post workout shake up with 100g blueberries, 2.5 scoops reflex instant strawberry whey and ate a spoonful of so organic crunchy peanut butter.

Then came the special new exciting recipe to my new adjusting pallette. Mexican Paleo Chicken Stew… it was damn nice!

I’m not sure if i’ll manage to get another meal in… so I’m going to leave it at 4 meals for today. My exercise wasn’t tracked in myfitnesspal but estimated 300 cals burned. Might sneak in a few nuts later this evening to try get my protein intake up slightly.

So I hit the macro ratios pretty well according to the my fitness pal app 53% healthy fat, 34% protein, 13% carbs but missing a few calories from whatever snack I have in a short while. Defecit today is probably around 4-700 calories depending on how accurate the BMR calcs are. After 2nd week measurements will be more important in working out my intake requirements.

    Definitely could be withdrawl from sugar – keep on pushing through it! I know when I made the change to strict paleo I went through withdrawl for probably 4-5 days, (days 4-8 or 9 if I remember correctly), and I was eating 80% paleo before that! It sucks, but it gets so much better once you’re on the other side of it! Keep it up!

    Cheers for the comment Bob :). I didn’t eat that much sugar, or drink it to be honest… but I really loved porridge and looked forward to it for my breakfast everyday.

    Starting out slow is so hard when you feel so ready that you want to do a bunch of hardcore workouts all the time! That happens to me too when my mind is raring to go and my body is all “Whoa there…slow down!”

    The salmon looks scrumptious! Salmon is my favorite so I’m also biased 🙂

    I found this link the other day about a rotating meal list and I thought you might want to check it out:

    I like the idea of a rotating meal list, at the moment I’m just trying to build up a few reliable recipes that I can tackle, unfortunately I’ve used that Salmon dish for the 3rd time in a row so far this week. So I need to get creative soon :). Cheers for the thought!
