      Your description is vibrant and compellingly memorable. XD

      So I take it that the Affliction occurred regularly enough that even in this amount of time you can tell it's behaving properly. Or at least better. Is that in addition to all the Colon Blow and Oxy Powder? Sounds like you're still on that, at least for now.

        While my appetite cannot yet be described as peckish is does seem to be diminishing. As my hunger for all things organ? Absolutely zero. I mean to be honest with you I would rather bite the head of a juicy ant then mow down on some chewy heart muscle. I adore the earnest attempts of primal peeps to make it seem more appetizing, "Just throw it in the crock pot with some spices!" or "Make a succulent pate," but while they gray pallor of squishy pate may be a delicacy to some, to me it is as big of a turn off as a man thong. I applaud using the whole animal, but someone would have to tie me up before I readily put something's insides inside my stomach. So for now I will continue to feed my dog's steer sticks and supplement the fabled benefits of organ meat ingestion withe these handy dandy pills. http://www.drrons.com/organ-delight-...-superfood.htm

        P.S.
        Anyone know Mark's stance on Rocky Mountain Oysters?

        Mon.- 1 week in!
        B: 3 eggs, 1 turkey sausage, c milk
        S: Laura bar (30 freakin carbs! booo
        L: Chicken curry clafouti & peach
        S: coconut & baba ganouj
        D: salmon burger, side salad, asparagus
        green tea & 2 herbal teas. I do love my tea.

        Tues
        B:2 eggs, 1 T sausage, c. milk
        S:Laura bar
        D: BAS (you know, the salad)+ I dodged the evil free ice cream in staff lounge, bonus!
        S: peach & cottage cheese& coconut
        D: Guac, beef salad

        The jury is still out on improved digestion, as it may just have been from all the fresh coconut, because as any good seaman worth his salt knows coconut is good roughage!

          I'm not really into organ meats either, but lemme tell you, marrow bone soup is SO GOOD ZOMG. I posted a recipe over here if you're so inclined:
          http://www.marksdailyapple.com/forum...ie-soup-recipe
          Cooked marrow is on the gooey and gross side (which is why I blend it) but you can just leave it in the bones and focus on the nummy broth instead. Most of the nutrition ends up there anyway due to the long cook time. I'd say add the salt and pepper at the end (it takes a LOT of salt IMO, but I'm saltaholic so add gradually till you know how much you like.)

          I would wager that Mark's stance on Rocky Mountain Oysters is, "Why would Grok leave good calories to rot?"

          Salmon burger! I wish I liked cooked salmon. ;_; What's it like in burger form?

          I have the Fresh Coconut Jealousy now...

            I am into my second week and the superiority/sympathy stage where I stare at all my co-worker's lunches and analyze them and feel deeply sorry for the viscous cycle they are in. Whereas I am all high and lofty because I know THE SECRET. Never fear peeps, my plan is to drop some mad lbs and look so smashing they are begging for the secret, and then I will show them to the holy grail of diets (lifestyle, that is), PRIMAL! Listen to me. I am getting WAY ahead of myself.

            Funny:

            B: unsweetened cocoa pow & banana biscuits ( made up the recipe all by myself!), coffee w/ coconut milk
            S: laura bar
            L: leftover dinner
            S: cottage cheese & peach
            D: salmon & carrot/beet salad

            Avoided the ice cream again! WOOOOOOOOOT!

              Their lunches were thicker than water? (sorry, couldn't resist. Great typo heheh)

              I seriously know the feeling though -- sort of a preemptive smugness, kinda! Like you I want to wait till I can point at myself and say "See see?!" before promoting PB to inform people. I feel like I have no street cred till then.

              As we are both part of the Inner Sanctum of Knowingosity, I do hope you share your coconana biscuit recipe over in the recipe forum. I'm not choco-oriented but my hubby might like em.

                Just yesterday I was eating lunch with one of my co-workers - she had a tiny plate of pasta, a roll (since the plate of pasta was so tiny) and a small side salad, fat-free dressing of course. Like me, she is trying to lose about 30 pounds. Meanwhile, I had my huge plate of veggies cooked in butter, and chicken breast over salad with alfredo sauce for dressing. I had at least 3 times more food then she did. She wondered aloud to our fellow lunch mates how I expected to lose weight eating all that food, and with butter and alfredo! I remarked I had already lost 8 pounds...there was much disbelief, but I'm sure that 6 weeks from now, everyone will be begging for my secret!

                I'd love to see that biscuit recipe, too!

                  good journal! Any before pics? we are starting around the same time and would also describe myself as "corn-fed" like you, so would be keen to watch progress!

                  not a great organ meat fan, need to find a restaurant that does good liver so i can taste it the way someone else makes it first. I also like haggis (lungs!) if they didn't put damned oats in it...

                  ps, also having "crap factory" issues, very slow transit - but it's coming out okay and no piles! but not sure it has settled down the way i want it to yet!

                  :- )

                    I'm feeling despondent. Only 2 lbs down. I'm thinking I need to cut my beloved moo juice. The thing is I have weaned myself off that cow teat for long stretches of time as a part of the elimination diet I did before being diagnosed as a celiac and I really noticed no difference. Plus I don't eat it often, it probably falls in my 20%. Maybe my crappy feelings are due to the ginormous piece of flourless cake I ate last night at a b day party. But listen, this is the ONLY time in two weeks I have strayed. Sigh.

                      Ughhh, my condolences. I love milk and cheese and I'm anticipating that once I get started in Officially Primal Weight Loss Mode, I'll need to do the same thing.

                      It's painful to say but I guess trying this without the milk will show you whether it was a major factor for you. Sure seems like it has been for some others.

                        I heart Chocolate buscuits

                        Preheat oven to 350

                        Mix together:

                        2 smashed bananas
                        2 tablespoons grapeseed oil
                        1 egg

                        In separate bowl mix:

                        1/8 teaspoon salt
                        1 teaspoon baking soda
                        1 1/4 cup almond flour
                        2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder

                        Mix wet and dry ingredients together

                        When I really want chocolate I add 2 Tablespoons cocoa nibs and/or carob chips

                        Place scant 1/4 cups of batter on parchment paper covered cookie sheets

                        Bake 15-20 min

                        You can easily double this recipe!

                        PS
                        I am baking at a high altitude

                          How have you lost so much? Awe nuts, maybe I need to lay off the nuts.

                              Seems like a lot of people have stalled out due to dairy or it causes them mucus issues.

                              How have I lost so much, you mean? Well, that's the baby's fault! I can't take credit for my appetite issues and morning sickness. We're 6 months into this pregnancy and it hasn't let up much. Looks like I'm in for the long haul, although cillakat suggested some vitamins that I think are helping.

                              That recipe looks great -- I'm not much into chocolate but I'll suggest to my husband.

                                yeah me too - i'm expecting to stall at some point, the moo juice will have to go, then the cheese and maybe the yoghurt...i'd rather not give any of them up to be honest, so going to keep an eye and see what else I can do differently...concentrate more on IF's instead maybe?

                                Also me2, nuts are sooo hard aren't they! I'm poor so i get cashews once a week, if that.
