Week 3 Recap of the Parker Paleo Diet Trial

Still going well.

Raw oysters qualify as paleo

Weight is down to 165 lb compared to 166 a week ago—not a reliable or significant difference.  Again, I’m not in this for weight loss, but wouldn’t mind losing another five pounds.

Transgressions?  You bet.  I was off my usual schedule, being out of town for the funeral of my favorite aunt in Baytown, TX.  I had a small praline (pure sugar and pecans), a small tamale (cornmeal), and four oysters breaded with flour and fried in industrial seed oil.  I passed on the carrot cake my two dinner mates shared.

Eating paleo at restaurants on the road is fairly easy, especially if supplemented by the nuts and fresh fruit I travel with.  We had breakfast at Denny’s in Corsicana, TX, and I was amazed at how many of the menu items incorporated cheese.  I loved hearing that Texas, “How ya’ll doin’?”

I’ll not do more weekly recaps until I have something interesting to say.  I’m planning to cheat on the diet for 24 hours around Thanksgiving holiday, and at least once I’ll get a pumpkin Blizzard from Dairy Queen.  It’s a very thick milk shake.


Update October 31, 2012

Dairy Queen pumpkin pie Blizzard: 780 calories, 116 g of digestible carbohydrate. That’s more calories than many of my meals.
