After a recent, brief stint with Paleo + Zone (and a subsequent Carb meltdown), I am back to my regularly scheduled Paleo meals along with the occasional fast. Every so often, I get seduced by the success stories of the Zone followers and I try to give it a go. Each time, I end up on some 2 week bread/rice/pastry bender. I think perhaps the level of carbs required by the Zone are a little too high for me and result in carb cravings.

My goals on the food front are:
1) Stay 95% Paleo compliant
2) Stay in tune with my body's natural hunger signals.
3) Eat lots of steak.

`good log at least your being honest with your eating. You will slowly start finding it easier to stay paleo while eating out. Just go for steak and wine ;)

Chris - Thanks for the encouragement. The past two weeks, I've been really off the Paleo wagon. Initially, I felt self-conscious about posting my log when my eating has been so terrible. But, then what's the use of a food log if you're not honest?

Sarena,

I always have stash of dates in my desk. :)

The organic Medjool dates from the Whole Foods at Columbus Circle are the bomb. I try not to overdo it on them but they are a nice pick-me-up.

Take care...

Near my house, there is a small private coop that sells only the freshest dried fruits (including several varieties of dates) that she purchases directly from the orchards. I gotta bring you some. Her mango is outrageous as well!
