So I’ve reached my one week milestone. Woo. Honestly, the thought of eating doritos, bagels or pasta kinda makes me sick at this point, so that is a good sign. No more headaches or light-headedness also a bonus! Though, this weekend I cheated a bit: one beer, a chicken gyro and a few handfuls of cereal: I blame my boyfriend who was in town visiting. (And I always eat a limited amount of dairy…)
There are a few things that I have found very difficult on a daily basis. And by a few, I mean one: drinking. I just moved to NY, have a lot of friends to visit that I haven’t seen in ages, live with two single roommates, and I work at a law firm. All of this equals a propensity to have a drink, (or two…) after work. Personally, I don’t enjoy sipping on tequila and lime all the time, so my backup has been dry red wine. From everything I’ve read, this seems to be the best option (other than not drinking)- but I would love to hear advice from you fellow primalmates.
A closely related problem is that when I come home after drinking, I don’t want to binge on fruit and veggies- I WANT PIZZA. I bought some meatballs at 1am at a deli across the street the other night and it was a good substitute but just not the same. I think the only thing that has saved me from totally deviating from this diet in those late-night, post-partying hours is the fact that I have no “naughty” food in the house. (Just dark chocolate bars in my office desk…)
Any advice from those of you who also indulge in too many refreshments would be much appreciated!
