What I Ate: Post Trip Days One Through Three

Let me sum up the first two days since returning from my vacation.

Day 1

Morning weight: 187.8 lbs

Breakfast

  • Two eggs sunny-side up and two slices of bacon

Lunch

  • (I forgot what I had, but it was pretty small)

Dinner (at a friend’s birthday party)

  • Hamburger with Paleo Bun (made by my wife)
  • I also drank two bottles of cider and had two or three small glasses of Auchentoshen Three wood Scotch Whisky.

Day 2

Morning Weight: 183.8 lbs

Breakfast

  • Two eggs sunny-side up and two slices of bacon

Lunch

  • Two thick slices of brisket (freshly out of our smoker) and some Brussels sprouts with sweet potato pieces

Party Snacks at a Baby Shower for a Friend

  • Two pieces of brisket, 8-10 french fry sized pieces of jicama, and about 6 or 7 cauliflower florets

Dinner

  • Two thick slices of brisket and some more Brussels sprouts with sweet potato pieces. I really love this stuff.

Day 3

Morning Weight: 182.0 lbs

Breakfast

  • Two eggs sunny-side up and two slices of bacon

Late-morning snack (9:30 am)

  • 9 almonds. This is the first time since starting the strict Paleo that I needed to snack on something before lunch.

Lunch

  • Whole30 Compliant Beef and Chorizo Meatloaf with Brussels sprouts and sweet potato

Dinner

  • Baked Salmon with Walnuts, asparagus, and Japanese Sweet Potato Salad (recipes on Sherry’s website)

Before dinner, I ran three miles in the heat, then walked half a mile as a cool-down. I weighed myself before I took my shower and was shocked at what I saw: 178.3 lbs. Wow! It’s amazing to watch how quickly the bloating and water weight goes away after cutting out the grains, sugars, dairy, and alcohol. The body does respond quickly.
