PD4A day 6 or 7
So I figure I'll throw out some random thoughts as I go day to day on this Paleo Diet for Athletes.
-Need to have some fruit/veggies on hand between meals. Went to the movies with my son and had eaten at noon. Around 2-3 just felt really weak. Afterwards got some fruit in me and felt better.
-Also around 11pm same thing. But I don't want to eat that late. Should have been in bed a little earlier anyway.
-Last night school function. Only thing around was Pizza and bake sale. Pizza was good. Very little desire for the bake sale stuff. 90:10 philosophy. Go for 90% of the time, 10% diversion from the plan is required. Sort of like training. A good plan executed 80% of the time is better than a bad plan executed 100% of the time.
-Cravings for pasta, candy, doughnuts are not as bad as I thought.
-Grapes banannas seem better for me. Apples make me feel hungier after eating.
-This is going to get expensive. Fish, chicken, lean meat. And lots of it to feel satiated.
-Need more ideas for eating out fast food. Not sure who's got the best salads. But need more meat to make it substanial enough. This isn't a diet, I'm not cutting back on calories. So it eat as much as you want, just of certain foods at certain times.
-As I read in somewhere else on the net, the scale and the mirror are motivators. Only been a few days but already feeling fitter similar to last year. That tight skin feeling. Could just be dehydration too. Earlier this year, without the motivations for racing, I definitely had been upping the snacks. So I can't say definitively if just cutting out the crapola for the last week is the reason, or if it is this eating plan.
-I will be surprised if I make it to 4 weeks. It's going to get interesting the next few weeks when the transition period gets harder and the newness of this obsession wears thin.
-Today will be a good test riding later in the afternoon. I'll carb it up 10mins prior and carb up on the ride.
