We completed 7 days, with yummy meals. I tried to remember to take photos, but I am not terribly good at that. I forgot most days.
We had plates full of veggies, fistfuls of protein, healthy fats, and a bit of fruit every day.
Day 1: No headaches from lack of sugar. No sluggishness. We felt fine, minus the fact that I was sick all day with 'morning sickness'.
Day 2: F said he felt 'the crash' at 2pm. I didn't feel sleepy, but I couldn't actually eat any food that day. It took me about 4 hours to eat breakfast, and actually keep it down. Yea, I am 19 weeks at this point and should be way past morning sickness.
Day 3: Same as day 2. F is tired but no headaches or any other symptoms, and I can't keep food down.
Day 4: I kept some food down, but had a serious stomach ache. I really just wanted to eat carbs.
Day 5: The hubs and I talked. I lost 2 pounds in the first 4 days of the diet. Not good. If I didn't keep food down on day 5 and 6, we were calling it.
Day 6: I quit :)
I really wanted to do this, but we can't always get what we want....
It was/is more important that I am gaining weight, and keeping food down rather than eating 100% clean/strict paleo. My stomach can't handle it right now. Maybe after baby comes we will try again.
