I知 one of that rare breed: a native Floridian still living in Florida.

I知 a retired vet tech so I love nature: animals, oceans, beaches, forests, sailing; I also enjoy reading (a variety of genres but) mostly fantasy and nonfiction. Language and words are a joy to me, along with philosophy, theology, architecture, and arts in general. Personality typing (ie, Myers-Briggs) interests me (I知 INTx).

I知 one of that rare breed: a native Floridian still living in Florida.

I知 a retired vet tech so I love nature: animals, oceans, beaches, forests, sailing; I also enjoy reading (a variety of genres but) mostly fantasy and nonfiction. Language and words are a joy to me, along with philosophy, theology, architecture, and arts in general. Personality typing (ie, Myers-Briggs) interests me (I知 INTx). And my DH of 37 years and I both enjoy model trains and our marine aquariums, and traveling around the state and lower southeast whenever possible.

I have a positive outlook, and am an inquisitive skeptic. I am spiritual but non-religious, and if pressed for a label would have to call myself eclectic pagan, leaning toward Druidism at the moment. When Christianity 吐ailed for me, I went on a search and have investigated a variety of other religions and cultural wisdoms, gleaning those which resonated with me and ignoring those which don稚.

I知 hoping to connect with others with similar goals, obstacles, and interests, and to encourage others to try the low-carb lifestyle. It痴 an uphill battle, since our government and big-ag still have great influence on our nutritional recommendations. It痴 why we致e gotten in the health and nutrition fix we池e in now. It hurts me to see so many people on so many diet and nutrition sites struggling so hard and trying to do the 途ight thing and quoting all the wrong protocols: calorie-counting, eliminating any fat from their diets, "healthy grains", doing extreme or at least very strenuous exercise and still unable to reach their weight or health goals. They assume they池e not doing 兎nough, or not trying hard enough, and beating themselves up because it isn稚 working. Well, it isn稚 working because -IT- doesn稚 work! Not because of any personal failure! I would like to try to break that cycle.

Thanks for the comment. I usually work 1pm to 9pm or 2pm to 10pm. Overnights are not that big a stretch, I often find myself up very late, especially if I have gone to the Y after work. On weekends I will be up at times until 6am on my own. Not every week but on occasion. I go to bed anytime betwen 1am to 4am normally.

Nights suit me. I was on days for a few months last year and was never so sick or so sleep deprived in my life! I simply DO NOT sleep early! No matter what!

Thanks for adding your very valuable comments to my blog about Rosedale's approach. I still don't own the book, but will get it now. I'm wondering if it's worth starting a thread on the low-carb forum for all to see to discuss the differences between Atkins and Rosedale. I still have some questions, like how low would he go on carbs and whether he considers carbs from veggies essential because of the micronutrients they contain? I do think that lowering protein/calories or building more muscles is an issue I may have to try and am trying currently. If you find the book I would love it if you could do a review of it.

Thanks for the comment on my Rescue Animal blog. I had the same thought about the head of pride comment, but as you say, the point was the reunion!

I have been scanning through the large file of recipes you sent me (again, THANK YOU) and there are some very delicious looking ones to try. I SO appreciate the effort you took not only to send me the file, but putting the collection together. They will NOT be wasted!
