KC Sunshine Posted February 20, 2013 Share Posted February 20, 2013 Hey all, I'm going to start logging here (and may eventually start a blog ). DAY 2 Today I had the following meals: BreafkastGround beef + 3 eggs + 1/2 avocado + spinach + mushrooms + salt, pepper, garlic, and oil[*]Lunch Salmon + avocado + leek + onion salad with a homemade dressing of oil, vinegar, black pepper, and mustard seeds[*]Dinner (cooked with some friends) Steak with salt, pepper, mustard, and garlic Sweet potato + onion + mushrooms + garlic + brussel sprouts with oil, salt, and pepper I had some headaches today, which are relatively welcome (I think that means it's working haha). I quit caffeine just over a month ago and went through something similar - detox isn't pretty Also, I'm a bit concerned about a few things: I think I may be using too much salt and too much oil - how much is average per meal? I'm not fully planning meals - I'm just grabbing a bunch of Whole30 approved ingredients from the grocery store each morning / evening and then throwing a bunch of stuff together. This has worked for the past 2 days, though I'm not sure it's sustainable. Portion control - should I worry about it? Is ground beef + three eggs too much for one meal? Should I focus more on greens? I found out my salt has magnesium carbonate, which seems to be an inorganic salt. Is that okay for the program or no? It would be great if some of you more experienced members could chime in with some advice! All in all though, pretty pumped to be doing this. It's the first time I've ever really consciously thought about what I ate (except for a week-long Paleo experiment during wrestling in high school), and my mood already feels smoother, even though I'm still in the early headache & difficult to concentrate phase. It may get worse before it gets better, but I'm gonna keep going, one day at a time. Will check in tomorrow and will begin uploading food pics soon. -Casey PS - any recommendations for spices would also be great - so far I've got black pepper, garlic, paprika, mustard seeds, and just bought a lemon.
