1 Month On The Wild Diet

Drum-roll please: 10 pounds: gone! Edema in lower right leg: gone!  Fear of green smoothies: gone! (lol)

I won’t say this is the easiest plan to do, because it’s not. There is a lot of food prep and planning.

I have not followed the menu plan in the book, though it wouldn’t be hard to, they do what most other plans don’t: they utilize left-overs. No “open a 12oz can of xxx, use 1/4tsp and pretty much throw the rest away” crap you get on so many plans.

I haven’t kept up with my menus on here. I have been keeping it pretty basic because my Hubbs and Son are both pretty basic guys. Son is adaptable much more than Hubbs is lol. Age maybe?

In a week, I’ll make  whatever for son and myself for lunch (we both like fish, curry, steaks, chicken, pretty much anything with a  big green salad), then make an actual recipe for supper.

The Wild Diet Ultimate Bacon Burger and Chicken Parmesan are favorites.

Son and I have both become fond of green smoothies as either breakfast or lunch. Son works afternoons and evenings, so a lot of time he’ll take one to work and have it between lunch and supper. I don’t make real big ones, just about 12oz.

They both liked the Oven Fried Salmon Cakes from: http://meljoulwan.com/2014/11/10/oven-fried-salmon-cakes/

http://paleogrubs.com/paleo-diet-meal-plan has a good plan, though on Wild you move those heavier carbs (like sweet potatoes) to dinner, and Intermittent Fast through lunch, but the recipes on Paleo Grubs are pretty good when you’re looking for something new.

Another major favorite: http://www.nomnompaleo.com. Michelle Tam has some awesome recipes.

Of course the original  http://www.fatburningman.com site of Abel James is also an excellent resource. If you join “the tribe” for $1 for the first month ($27 after that) you get access to the Facebook page along with the library. If you’re a member for 3 months, you get permanent access to the facebook page, even if you cancel after that, so it works out well.

Of course, I make huge salads with “power greens”, cucumber, tomato, beets, peppers, avocado, olives, etc.

I have limited cheese to a couple of times a week, and I do add heavy cream or coconut milk to my coffee. I’ve had the “fatty coffee” a few times, but MCT oil makes me want to barf, so I don’t use it lol.

Anyway, that’s been my first month eating Wild.
