Every week we take out students on community based instruction field trips. This week we headed to Golden Corral to work on money skills.
I knew going to a buffet could be trouble. So last night I thought about it and went in with a plan. I knew it wouldn’t be logical to think that I would go there and not eat anything. I ordered water and eat only rotisserie chicken and greens beans. I had a bowl of various fruit. I did pretty well with the overall meal. I did want dessert, so I had some. I eat a piece of carrot cake. (Probably not the best choice but at least I didn’t go crazy!)
When we left I felt good that I was able to maintain control and mostly stick to primal eating. In the Cordain books he advocates the 85/15 rule. So, a non paleo treat is okay here and there.
How strict are you with your primal/paleo eating?
