Day 4: On this day your suppose to eat when hungry and stop when full, rather than an empty plate. Like many people in my generation, I was always told to finish my plate. Through the years I have learned to take smaller portions and go for seconds if I want more. So on this day, I tried to eat smaller portions and only when hungry and it went pretty well. I also did the primal workout routine with the Beaner and we both had fun doing it.
Day 5: On this day, Sisson suggests dining out for a meal and seeing how well you stay primal aligned. We ordered carry out on Day 6 instead and it was tough. We ordered Asian from our favorite Asian restaurant but it definitely wasn't primal aligned. Even the side of extra veggies I ordered came covered in some mystery sauce. On Day 7 you get to eat a non primal food so I counted this as that. Your suppose to note how you feel after eating it. Frankly, my stomach hurt but I was full much longer.
Day 6: We had a great exercise this day. It was suppose to be the primal feast so as noted above, we ordered out. It was a beautiful day so we ran outside with the kids for hours in addition to a trip to the gym. Victory day for me.
Day 7: Today was suppose to be an anything goes type of day to see how you feel. Since we did the Asian food last night, I stuck to primal foods today.
So at this point, I want to be honest. I feel like I'm on a diet which is not how it is suppose to feel. It seems that you have to cook every meal and I just don't have time to cook all day long. I often feel hungry and struggle with what to eat. I do want to finish the 21 days as I think it will get rid of my constant carb cravings but so far, I still have those strong cravings. I also have very little energy which was my main purpose for doing this challenge. So let's hope the energy surge begins soon!
