Guys, out of nowhere I went primal this saturday. Yeah, I know. I was suppose to start this primal thing in 8 days from now, but I just woke up and felt like doing it.
Do you know Grok? It’s the name of the fantasy caveman fron the DailyApple website. Today I woke up at 13:30 PM (it’s a saturday, don’t judge me!). When I woke up, I inmediatly remembered Grok. That’s how cavemen woke up; when they were finish sleeping. No clock. It just felt right. I decided then I was going primal today.
I was suppose to attend a birthday lunch today. That’s like a birthday party, but for people over 30 so it’s not a party anymore, it’s a lunch. Yeah, I know. Anyways, I got there, no breaksfast, at 3:30 PM. First they served a soup. It was a broth, with some turkey bits and parsley. The thing is, the first 4 tablespoons I took were half broth, half OIL. There was a layer of oil swimming on top of the soup. I eat it whole, oil included (even burnt my tongue with it).
Then came the turkey breast. So healthy, right? But still, it was swimming in oil. OMG. I passed the potatoes to the people around me and just had the turkey meat with celery and lettuce salad. Then munched on the salad for like 20 minutes (down here, we serve big bowls of salads and everyone take their share into his/her plate. Is it like that over the world?) . I was satisfied, and feeling great, Yeah, feeling great, low carbs for the day was effortless.
Then came dessert. It was fruit, but canned fruit. Filled with sugar. I passed, and had a coffe instead. “No sugar” I asked. I drank it. Weird, no sugar or sucralose coffee actually doesn’t taste that bad. May I dare saying this, I enjoyed my no sugary coffee.
Then came cake. Actually, I left the house when they were almost about to serve cake. So I didn’t got any. While leaving, they asked “You are not going to eat cake?” And my mom answered for me: “No, he’s on a diet”. I just give her a look, this look ¬¬ and said “I didn’t said I was on a DIET. I said I was not gonna have cake right now”. You’ll see, she didn’t said “diet” as an everyday diet or lifestyle. She said “DIET” rolling her eyes. It was rude. Then EVERYONE started attacking me like I had vigorexia, like I was doing steroids, then why so much gym, and if-you-wanna-prove-youre-healthy-you-must-eat-cake. Oh Lord. I ditch them and left.
Now, I don’t know if it was the Primal Diet or all the good sleeping, but I decided to go to the gym for some weight lifting. It was great. Awesome, even. I exerted myself beyond my safety zone. That’s good.
Before I went to the gym, I left some veggies ready to cook. I sliced zuchinni, red bell peppers, mushrooms, celery sticks and spinach. And I boiled some artichokes also.So, after the gym I munched on an artichoke (Good Lord, yum!) with lemon juice and some salt for a dip. After that, I was full. But I knew I had to get my protein. I eat a little meat, medium rare. It was like a portion, you know the p0rtion, a “deck of cards” kind of portion.
After that I went to bed. Or online, actually. It’s my first day on this primal thing and I felt great. Energized, was in front of carbs and didn’t felt like eating them… I had a great (almost amazing) weight lifting workout and… that. Yeah. COOL!
UPDATE: DAY 2
