Well I made it through the first day and am happy to say, I did not falter at all; in fact, I stuck to the plan verbatim. My biggest hurdle so far is the coffee. Oh I can drink coffee; I just can’t drink it with my Splenda and low fat french vanilla creamer. I tried drinking it with 100% coconut milk, but could only get about a half of a cup down. The result of not having my coffee is my energy level is really low. I’m pretty sure I am going through caffeine withdraws.
On the positive side, I was surprisingly not hungry for the most part of the day. I felt like I ate a lot, but when I pretty much eliminated most of my carbs, the amount of calories I consumed weren’t as bad as I thought. The one saving grace was at my 3:00 snack. Because most Larabars are Paleo friendly, they make a great afternoon snack and held me over until dinner.
When I came home from work , Kristy had dinner waiting for me. She made an awesome Paleo Taco Salad which was absolutely delicious. In it was, lean ground turkey browned, lettuce, tomatoes, avocados, olives, and cilantro. Not only was the meal tasty, it was also very filling. And, just as the recipe reads, there was enough left over for me to bring to lunch the next day.
