Default Jordan's food log

Been Paleo for about a month, and am venturing into IF. My digestion has been off for a while, hence the food log. I just started to read Body Ecology Diet, and I can't wait to start culturing my own veggies....any day now!

day 1

following a 13hr fast, 5k run, and KB work:

8 oz turkey
100 g avocado
2 tsp olive oil (drank)
cooked w/ coconut oil
400 g of steamed broccolli
150g raw baby carrots

Leaving the house with:
6oz turkey
600g of brocolli
24 alomnds

finished eating @ 6pm
will try and fast for 15hrs

Default Not ready to log.....

i am in the middle reading Body ecology diet. So far, it's really intriguing. Relates to many infections I've had thoughout my life when I was a grain junky! I will lay off the food log for a while, for 2 reasons. 1 it makes me too strict (I dont want to cheat for the whole world to see, and, it wont proove the validity of the diets, if I don't stick with them). Cheating can be a good thing, however because I am trying to combine many eating philosophies, paleo/if/zone/ and incorporate BED principles too many food limitations leads to insufficient calories. 2nd, I want to make it easier for me to keep a log, and because I am eating new foods, and eliminating ones that were familiar to me, measuring has become tedious once again, and logging what I eat takes it over the top.

I the meantime I will do my best to read up all the info buried in these boards. Thanks guys/gals

Let's try and log.....again.
Overview of the last couple of months. Have remained paleo/if. For the most part I wouldn't consider any of my eating patterns similar to the zone, except for using blocks to quantify macronutrients.
Mostly low-carb, with little fruit. At times felt absolutely amazing, but, have also felt as lethargic and weak as ever! During times of weakness it was very hot, relatively for my neck of the woods (WHistler BC, Canada).
I like eating low carb, but, I do feel that it does let me down to be there consitently. I would love to get away with 25-100g CHO/day, 160-225g fat/day (worked backwards from 1500-2000 ckals of fat), along with my 550g-700g PRO/day. (BW 158lbs, 5'7", BF% < 10%-estimated from previous calculations) But, I seem to crash when I keep this up.
My experiment with IF has been good.
I can easily go 12-22hrs without eating. Problems arise trying to eat normal portions after IFing. I will try 24 on/24 off. So that my meal sizes stay relatively constant, which, in theory should be easier on me.

I will keep a log so that I can see exactly why I am having successes or failures.
I also feel that I am have problems digesting some things.
1-Nuts in large amounts, or prolonged use. I only seem to eat almonds or macadamias (don't know how to eat them in small amounts!)
2-eggs. Seem to eat them all the time, or never, again, don't know how to eat in moderation
3-avocados. Combining eggs & avocados gives me bad gas. I know to not do that anymore....

After a 17 hr fast. And a workout of snatches, snatch pulls, and squats. although I snatched 72.5 kg, my form was terrible. I was bending my arms way too early. Ugly to watch the video. I did "charlie horse" both my biceps crashing on a trampolene yesterday which is hopefully causing this problem for today. (I hope)
snatch 72.5 kg
snatch pulled 90 kg
squated 115kg x2- felt pretty weak under the bar today

One hour eating window
fish oil 2 tspn
big swig of Apple cider vinegar
18 oz ground buffalo (cooked with 4 tbsp coconut oil)
1 med size white onion
2 large avocados
6 tbsp olive oil
topped with cilantro

1 pint of fresh rasberries
1 larabar for desert

I avoid the ones that use cashews. I tend to buy the cherry pie, and apple cinamon.
