This should be interesting.
I'm tired of tracking my calories, macros, etc...so I'm just not going to anymore.
A few days ago, I started eating similar to Paleo/Primal...well, maybe a bit closer to South Beach, or a Mediterranean diet, I suppose. I'm still using some Greek yogurt (unsweetened) and a little cheese, because I love it and just don't want to give it up. lol
I've had issues with grains for a long time, and know from experience that I feel FAR better when I avoid them. So, that's what I'm doing.
I'm eating meat, nuts, seeds, veggies, some Greek yogurt and a little cheese, and some fruit. I had a kick-ass pumpkin smoothie this morning (pumpkin puree, unsweetened almond milk, plain Greek yogurt, protein powder, frozen banana, and pumpkin pie spices).
I'm already finding I have more energy, no bloat (like grains gave me, gah!) and I feel stronger in the gym.
I'm eating when I'm hungry, not obsessing about anything, and working out 6 days per week (3 days of heavy weightlifting, 2 days of HIIT, 1 day of SS cardio).
My goals are to lose fat and gain some muscle and improve my conditioning and endurance.
I've been reading works by this author: Gary Taubes
And watching videos of this endocrinologist speaking: Amazon.com: Fat Chance: Beating the Odds Against Sugar, Processed Food, Obesity, and Disease (9781594631009): Robert H. Lustig: Books
Anyway...I'm curious to see what happens. I'm going to start TRACKING my calories for the sake of my research. I'm going to see how many I eat on a daily basis now compared to what I used to consume.
I'll update this with my progress.
Do any of YOU eat this way? If so, what have your results been like?
