Sunday night was Paprika Marinated thighs (from the Make it Paleo cookbook), with some Spiced Sweet Potato Wedges (from the Healthy Helpings cookbook,-which you can order right here at the top of the sidebar on the right hand side of this page; I used regular Greek yogurt though instead of low-fat and I also added parsley in with the coriander because, if you read my last post-it's really good for you!), and a broccoli/tomato salad with a Dijon dressing; my own recipe. :-0
Now, for comparison, back in February of this year (exactly 6 months ago) my weight was 54.6k and my body-fat was at about 15%; so really, I have not gone off track as much as I had thought. Just before my first comp in June, I was at 48.3K (106lbs) and 9.75% body fat. It will be interesting to see what my body-fat and weight will be after a month of my Primeo Lifestyle eating. I will take photos too, but those will be disclosed at a later date as before and after shots.
Basically I’m simply bloated out from my post comp and holiday binging. Why did I bloat out after the comp? Well, during the final stages of my comp prep, I was starving myself of much needed fats for one thing. I didn’t completely exclude them, but I was eating them way too minimally. After the comp, rather than just filling up on fats, I loaded up on carbs-big time. I had been so hungry during that last part of comp prep, that after the comp I did everything in my power to not feel hungry for at least two full weeks….and I was actually full to the point of bursting! It was purely psychological, but it was bad. And I was filling on carbs…and that went into my vacation as well; lots and lots of breads, pastas and sugary desserts.
Gluten and sugar are not my friends. I will never deprive myself of fats again; even if I compete again, I will keep much more of those fats in. I knew better, but I gave in to the brainwashing dogma that I preach against all the time. Fat does not make you fat-period and I’m going to prove it to myself for once and for all.
