Okay. So I WILL continue avocado in my salad but will keep it to half an avocado. It will increase absorption of carotenoids from the rest of the salad according to an OSU food science study. So I will limit my avocado use but feel no guilt in ... Read more
Avocado is 83% Fat!
Friday, April 20, 2012      1 comments

Oh my gosh! Eighty-three percent of the calories from Avocado are fat. Granted, they are primarily mono-unsaturated, so if I were to eat fat, it is the type of fat I want. But I'm keeping below 10% fat in my diet---about 140 calories on a 1400 c... Read more

I LOVE upper body workouts. Tomorrow, I get to work my upper body again and I CAN”T WAIT!! Today was legs/lower body. I don’t have as much fun with legs as I do with arms. I lack variety. In part, it is because I have a restriction on de... Read more

I broke my leg this spring. I was able to keep up my upper body weight lifting. But I found that being restricted in weight-bearing on my leg really threw me for a loop. I started letting my eating get out of control because of my frustration... Read more
