Thanks Pedidoc.

I am looking at some check off diet tracker phone apps to see if they are adjustable.

No idea of the quality or adjustability, but I'm pretty sure I've seen in someone's signature (here, not just on MDA) that he wrote an app for primal tracking. Since I can't think where, I know this isn't particularly helpful, but do keep an eye out for it and I will too.

Thanks, LB!

PaleoTrack.com
Not sure if it is an app or just a website as I've not used it. Homescreen testimonials look promising and he is focused on Primal and now has a Keto blurb.

The one that works for your needs is the one you are most apt to use. And yes, it is hard to get enough protein!

Thanks ladies, paleo track works much like MyFitnessPal.

I'm looking for something simple like my checklist. I found one: Check off diet tracker.

Great template! I'm sure it will be a great tool.

It's so unfortunate that we have to put our kids in boxes, and their seems to be little acknowledgement that there are different paths to success and happiness in life. Males especially seem to bloom later, and it seems to me this should be accepted. One of my nephews didn't learn to read until he was 10 - but when he did, watch out! He almost landed in the special track - how different his life would be. He's a lawyer now, has his own practice and just married a wonderful woman.

The template is already working well. Again, if you want an app, checkoff diet tracker is nice and simple. It also has a more complicated older sister with a few more bells and whistles. They cost .99 and 1.99 respectively.

For me, intuitive eating is difficult. I know that I have some nutritional deficiencies that can become a binge trigger. Now I can see that I have gotten enough protein and fat.

That said, I realize that my fat intake has been way out of control. I always think about what the keto people say..."Protein is a goal, Fat and Carbs are a limit especially for weight loss". I was using the motto "Fat is Good" as an excuse to eat however much I wanted. 100 grams is plenty of good fat.

I need some quick and easy vegetable ideas. I get about two 1/2 cup servings a day, but would like to double that. Truth is, I really want someone to cook my veggies for me. Then I would eat a lot more. Wink

Pebbles, I like the tracker (especially that you have done it in metrics). It reminds me of the Zone system that I tried out years ago. Both simple, and practical.


I don't know what you are doing for veges already, but some things I have tried include:

Onions, mushrooms and silverbeet at breakfast time with eggs or actually in the omelette.

Use lettuce leaves as a wrap for a lunch "sandwich" with other salad ingredients

Use large mushroom as a "pizza base" for toppings of cheese, tomato paste and basil leaves.

Make a salsa with finely diced capiscums, cucumber, mint or basically anything on hand to dollop over a steak or lamb chop. I would include a fruit also for sweetness, eg orange or peach.

For cooked veges, just lightly steam them and toss through a little knob of garlic butter. This works for carrots or broccoli. Or oven roast in olive oil and rosemary. This works for cauliflower or beetroot.

Or actually cook thoroughly then mash together. Leftovers can have a beaten egg stirred through and then cook as a pancake/hash brown. Eg pumpkin or parsnip.

Of course, everything can mix and match. These are just examples.

Cut up as many different ones as you can, including lots of greens and then make an omelette. I always get in about 3 c of veg i. My morning omelette

Since veggie prep is time-consuming, consider buying the pre-cut and bagged stuff. With it, you can throw a pile in a steam basket with minimal time investment.

We were recently helping my MIL adjust to a new diabetes diagnosis and trying to help her figure out how to eat more real food versus bread, cereal, and crackers. Steamed veggies, bagged salads, and veggies in her eggs were all suggestions she felt she could do (she dislikes cooking).

I just wanted to chime in on the special education thing. My daughter has lots of issues and attended public school through 8th grade. She was pulled for reading, writing, math and for speech and O.T. Eventually she tested out of reading - she is dyslexic, but is reading above grade level. She is quite intelligent, but does not test well. Anyway this year she is at a private special needs school here in Ohio. Kids are placed in classes according to their levels. They cover everything from college prep to life skills and job training. The kids will get H.S. diplomas. The way I understand it, there are several ways of meeting the requirements for graduation, at least in Ohio. The public schools will tell you that you have to pass the Ohio Graduation exams, but that is not accurate. There are four (I believe) other means of assessment. This might be something for you to look into, but the school district might not be the place for answers.

Great suggestions on the more veggies plan, Annie. Simple and healthy.
I have limited intuition for eating, as well. I've had to use a calorie as well as macros tracker to control or lose weight. I use a fitness/nutrition tracking software for my laptop called Weightmania Pro. I'm sure there are others.

Hi Everyone,

Sorry I dropped out of site. 😎
I have been trying to figure out my eating plan but basically just bingeing. I finally decided to try keto again. I've got 10 keto days and I feel great.

I have two auditions coming up. One for Fun Home and the other for Barnum. It is exciting to be getting back in the theater game.

Thanks Lovebird. I was just checking in on a few people. Considering coming back but I'm not really good at this journal thing. I used to be. Don't know what happened. I'll put an official update in later on today.

Good Morning Primal Friends!

I can't believe I dropped out for more than a year. Sorry. My MO when I am having a crisis is to hide away instead of sharing.

Here are a few things you missed.

Kids: My sons are 23, 21 and 15. DS1 graduated with a degree in Finance last year. He went through the process of applying for the Naval Officer program. Health concerns made that route impossible. He is now actively seeking a job.  DS2 is still getting his associates in Graphic Design. DS3 is finishing his freshman year of HS. He loves it and the teachers love him.

Divorce: Three years separated, but there is finally some movement. Ex has a girlfriend. Hoping to have papers signed by the end of summer.
A side note to this...I joined some dating websites last October. Wish I had been journaling. What a ride! lol I recently deleted my profiles on all sites.  Rolling Eyes

Job: Finishing year 26 of teaching, 21 in this school. Due to renovations, I will have to leave my classroom of 21 years. A little sad.

Theater: I auditioned for Barnum a year ago April. I was chosen to play the lead role of Charity Barnum. My first Lead! It was an amazing experience. I have since taken an entire year away from the stage.
I'm still on the board of The Coach House Theater, but left the board of The Rhinebeck Theatre Society.
In January. I started training as a Voice Actor, completed my Demo & Website in April, and printed business cards. I will get the business going once the divorce is finalized.

Health: Still struggling with bingeing and am back to my highest weight. I have gone through several attempts at varied eating plans including Vegan. Nothing works for long. Honestly, the main problem is perimenopause. Night sweats are making it difficult to sleep. Lack of sleep increases cravings and the urge to binge. I am looking into natural supplements to improve the issue. I have read that women with Leptin resistance and inflammation have a worse time with menopausal symptoms. Catch 22.
I saw a nutritionist last week. We both concluded that I have all the knowledge that I need. That I need to stop dieting, eat enough, stop demonizing whole food groups and listen to my body, So I am back to the Paleo template with added mindfulness.

Phew! That was a lot. I will post a current pic of myself later. Cheers!
