Trying new things this coming winter
Friday, November 09, 2012      6 comments

I like to try new things, new twists to an old way of eating, new forms of exercise, new hobbies and new goals. I'm in a time of transition at the moment. Part of it is the time of year, the end of fall and beginning of winter just around the co... Read more
Safe starches - not for most of us
Thursday, November 08, 2012      4 comments

How many carbs are ideal for health?
Monday, November 05, 2012      9 comments

The first question we need to ask is whether this is even the right question, because if we ask the wrong question we will certainly get the wrong answer. So let's back up one more step. Does the number of carbs matter to determine the best ap... Read more

This is what I want to find out over the next 37 days. I already know what I need to do and how to do it. I will no longer monitor weight, carbs, water consumption or the foods I eat on a daily basis as this would actually waste energy and ti... Read more

Thursday, November 01, 2012      6 comments

It's 40 days until my next body scan appointment. My doctor thought this would give me enough time to see a significant difference in my body composition and possibly some more weight loss as well. The primary goals are still keeping my blood... Read more

There is only very little change as expected. My weight was up 0.4 lbs. , my body fat was down 1/2 lb and my lean muscle mass was up by 0.2 pounds. Overall not bad given that I let my carbs go as high as 80 grams on some days and that I had t... Read more

The good news is that my weight is back to 129.8, which means I'm back in ketosis. I wasn't very hungry yesterday in part because my throat hurt. Today I did not really have time to eat until lunch and that was bacon and eggs and a few nuts with... Read more

I feel better this morning, thanks to being able to sleep in and to the elderberry syrup. I've thought about making elderberry tea instead as I have some dried elderberries which I picked last year. I'm just not sure how potent they still are. T... Read more

Monday, October 29, 2012      2 comments

Ultra-low carb is what I have to do if I want to get the body fat any further down and possibly even to maintain at a lower level. My weight this morning is at 131.8, almost 3 pounds higher than 4 days ago. I ended up eating a few more plum... Read more

Going to watch my daughter's swim meet was so worth it. I loved seeing her and her team mates compete and to see the results of their hard work. Being in the car for 3 1/2 hours two days in a row and sitting a significant part of the rest of... Read more
