Well today has been a little more relaxing than the last week has been! I spent the morning meeting with my new Arbonne Consultant which was really exciting! She is going to be a fantastic team member! I then got nearly 30min on the phone with my best friend to discuss her wedding. She lives 700km away, and this too was very exciting as I usually have to hang up because of ratbag kids or alternatively suffer through a conversation being interrupted every 5 seconds. It is true what they say ‘ how do you get your child’s attention? Sit down to a cup of tea or pick up the phone’. I then spent the afternoon and this evening studying for my exams getting up to hang out loads of washing. So actually now that I diarise today…..it was still rather busy! Oh well, I felt relaxed so that is an improvement. I ate pretty well today which is particularly hard for me during exams – handfuls of cashews and extra meals are usually unnecessary calorie additions. But not today! Lets see how Mike went for day 11:
Breakfast: Bacon, 2 poached eggs & banana (good, great, good)
Lunch: Lamb Chops and Rocket salad (great)
Dinner: T-Bone Steak, Pork Chop, Sweet potato and broccoli (great)
Snack: orange, pear (good, good)
Temptation of the day: Subject reported that there was no temptation today. That he looked forward to his next meal and did not feel like he was missing out on anything. He was able to face the dessert buffet with minimal temptation.
Experimental Findings: It seems day 11 may have proved to be the turning point. In under 2 weeks the subject is now feeling satisfied with a Paleo diet and cravings for sugar and carb have been reduced.
Conclusion: It is important that the subject does not revert back to old eating habits as this stage. New eating patterns are beginning to form, cravings are reducing and energy levels are stabilising.
