A great long run with low-carb breakfast and a half mint brownie

Monday, February 06, 2012      11 comments

I knew it was time for another long run today. This whole week I did not do that much running. It was partly difficult to find the time and my energy levels felt a little low so I only did a short mid-week run of about 3 miles. Since I knew th... Read more

"Wheat Belly" by William Davis, this may be my most important blog

Thursday, February 02, 2012      37 comments

This information could be critical to the well-being of millions of people. The message is "unbelievable" but it may be true. I'm copying a post I made in the spark group "Wheat Belly" earlier today: I just finished the book "Wheatbelly"... Read more

5th wheat-free and gluten-free day, 3 mile run, feeling tired

Wednesday, February 01, 2012      6 comments

I don't know if it was the weather, not enough veggies in the last 2 months since our garden hasn't been producing, the fact that I was exposed to my daughter's cold, dealing with the exposure to mercury from amalgam fillings as they are removed... Read more

4th wheat free/gluten free day, lots of walking/jogging with dogs

Tuesday, January 31, 2012      3 comments

I burned about 500 calories walking/jogging with dogs today. Total calories from food were about 2100. Breakfast was an oat/chocolate chip cookie, full-fat plain yogurt, a nut/dried fruit bar snack: hardboiled egg, sugar snap peas ... Read more

3rd day without wheat or gluten, run in the wind

Monday, January 30, 2012      4 comments

After getting a lot less sleep last night because of the wind I was not sure how that would affect my running. I ended up running 5.5 miles as planned, speed 4.2 mph, on the slow side for sure, and I felt hungry for carbs half-way through the... Read more

2nd day without wheat or gluten

Monday, January 30, 2012      4 comments

I've read several more chapters of the book "Wheat Belly" and learned that about one in 133 people in the US (and other wheat eating countries probably) have celiac disease but only 10% are diagnosed. Only about half of them have the more typica... Read more

Reading "Wheat Belly" and 1st day without wheat

Sunday, January 29, 2012      9 comments

It was pretty easy so far. I stepped on the scales yesterday morning and my weight was down one pound to 139. So this will be my baseline. I started out with buckwheat pancakes made with buckwheat flour, duck eggs and milk, and added blueberri... Read more

1/27/2012 Long run and some weight loss plans

Saturday, January 28, 2012      3 comments

I did my long run today, distance covered is 8.4 miles in 2 hours, average speed 4.2 mph and average heart rate 132. This is slower than what I was hoping for but given that I hardly ran in the last two weeks and missed two long runs I can't com... Read more

3 hours at the dentist

Wednesday, January 25, 2012      8 comments

I had another amalgam filling removed. 7 down, 4 to go. I'm hoping that as my body will soon have to deal with a lot less mercury that this will have a positive influence on my overall health and fitness. I decided to skip my run today since thr... Read more

Finally a run and some sunshine - more musings on diet

Monday, January 23, 2012      2 comments

It had been a whole week since I last went for a run and that one was only 4 miles instead of a long run of 9 miles. Since the roads were so snowy and/or icy and the weather so windy that running outside was not an option but I could not safely ... Read more

An evening with Caballo Blanco - a vibrant memory - and an appeal

Saturday, January 21, 2012      7 comments

Caballo Blanco (real name Micah True) is the runner I wanted to talk about in today's post. But before I start telling you about what Caballo taught me let me start by saying that in the last few weeks I was contemplating the ideal diet for r... Read more

Lots of unsorted thoughts about food and gluttony

Thursday, January 19, 2012      6 comments

It all started with being reminded by a friend on spark of a great runner who eats a very simple diet. Simpler than most people in this country would eat. But more about that tomorrow. Then I thought of the joke about the child that doesn't wa... Read more

3 hours of shoveling snow and almost that long tracking what I ate

Thursday, January 19, 2012      9 comments

Ok, that's a little exaggerated, but it may have been over an hour. It took forever in part because I had to enter all the ingredients for recipes, then divide it into servings and enter the info per serving. I eat a lot of little things as snac... Read more

Here is a link to a video from ABC that explains why cardio is more important than strength training and why anyone should have a physical regularly:
