Yesterday was the first day in a while where I actually got cravings for carbs. I wasn’t prepared and ended up eating about 2 dozen crackers that I found in the closet. I believe these cravings where do to my own habits. I recently switched to grass fed butter, which is a lot more costly than the regular butter you find in the supermarket. I figured that I could afford it if I simply ate less of it. The fat in the butter stave’s off the feeling of hunger for a long time, and I enjoy putting it on my vegetables.
There will be times where I will be craving carbs and I have to remember that there is a big difference between good carbs and bad carbs. Crackers on on the bad carb list for sure. On my heavy lifting days I should be eating a small amount carbs anyway, but I will have to be mindful of both the quality and quantity of those carbs. Looks like I need to start working on this. Sweet potato’s, White potato’s and avacodo’s are just a few that I know off, and maybe a small amount of basmati rice. Of course the best source on a paleo diet would be to simply increase the vegetables.
I am also practicing the 18 hour fast on the weekends and when I did eat lunch yesterday I should have eaten much more that I did. I suppose that I am getting caught up in weight loss I have been experiencing due to the rapid fat burning of the strict diet. Lesson learned… Move on.
