Hey, I had roasted pork loin for dinner tonight too! Day 7 sans flour, overt sugar, dairy, starchy veg etc. I actually feel pretty good. I have lots to bitch about though--tired of "diet advice" from co-workers. I qualified the sugar thing, because I discovered that the deli turkey I had and a tomato sauce I tried had a spot of sugar in it. We're talking less than 1g so I think I'm ok. This may be the crack justifying the consumption or the ego not wanting to set the clock back to the beginning, but suffice it to say, I have a new interest in some Paleo and this is day 7 of a pretty clean diet. What's changed in 7 days? Well for one thing, I've lost 7 lbs and 1/2 inch off the waist which tells me that some of the loss is fat, not just the rapid water loss.

Nicole's article in CFJ about getting off the crack talks about making a commitment to strict blocking and weighing. I'm weighing my protein and my fat, but I'm not really weighing the subcomponents of my salad because I have so much stuff in there to begin with. What my strategy has been is to go to the market every 2 - 3 days to stock up on greens and veggies, wash and chop them, then put them in easy access containers. I'll then grab a gallon ziplock bag, fill with lettuce and the prepped veggies, which usually consists of red, green, yellow and orange peppers, raw broc, raw cauliflower, celery, radish, spinnich. I weighed my bag and it was about 14 oz. To this I add my fats which would be maybe some olives or some avocado or some chopped up anchovie filletes (which I love and is pretty close to fish oil). For dressing, 2 tsp of EVOO and 2 tbs balsamic vinegar. For protein I'll chop up left over chicken or grab a can of tuna (4oz for 4 blocks) That has been my lunch. My system has been working great (I know it's only been a week, but I use the time to wash and chop as some alone time for conscious preparation and eating.) Anyway, tomorrow, I am going to the track to do today's CrossFit main site WOD to compare it to my time of 6 months ago. It will be interesting to see my fitness progress, which I can tell is really improving.

I know the grossly out of shape make quick gains that can be fast and furious, the real strength is in the stickyness of the lifestyle changes in the middle of long plateaus.

I hope you guys are well, I'll post my progress later.
