    I am going out of town tomorrow for a few weeks - I am a little concerned about how food is going to be too - I don't want to derail myself if possible, but I will just have to find the most primalish options I can.

    Mmmmm. Real food is good.

      Yeah, for me just avoiding gluten and sugar when possible is about all I can do, I can't obsess over this stuff when I've got work to do all day and have to eat out every meal. A few weeks of basically SAD food minus bread isn't going to make a big dif in the long run. A few days (my case) is nothing, always good to remember.

        Back home finally, today wod: Lots and lots of sitting on my butt. I really considered doing some primal fitness moves in the airport, but it was super crowded, there was some kind of technical difficulty happening, it just didn't seem right.
        Food: again with the corned beef hash, lunch another Chipotle meal, this time with full guac and carnitas. Dinner a cobb salad from the airport - thank god for cobb salads, hey. So, not so primal but not any kind of food disaster. People are much larger in the midwest, wow - it realy is a shock to leave the coastal cities and see the health problems this country has - almost nobody over 30 looks very healthy. No muscle tone, lots of extra fat, many very obese, etc. - you all know what I mean, but it is just weird to leave your little new york bubble and re-enter the real world from time to time.

          Today WOD: Crossfit intro course, day 2 - we learned deadlifting (I stayed at 175, just taking in the form coaching), reviewed pushups, (ended up doing maybe 40-50 pushups) and did some jump ropes. I thought the coaching was excellent, the progression made sense, all good so far.

          Food: IF'd for brekkie, that was nice actually. After crossfit had a banana, then a bit later I had lunch of thin sliced beef fried in lard topped with spicy bbq sauce, side of green beans + butter, a cup or so of rice. Dinner will be some fish and stuff. I ought to do more IFing (skipped-breakfast variety), I don't know why I'm still not really in the habit of it.

              WOD: took about an hour walk - it finally stopped raining out. Tomorrow I'll try to get in a HIIT.

              Food: late brunch of an omelette with gruyere and mushroom plus some greens w/ oil + vinegar. Lunch just a bit of yogurt and a banana (ONE!!!). Dinner, I thought I'd post pics. It's meatshare lamb (all good stuff), mashed sweet tater, and greens w/ green beans. Taters have a bit of butter and cream, green beans are sort-of-legumes, but except for that it's 100% paleo. For the carbophobes, this is probably 30g net carbs, 7 g sugars. For the day I probably had like 60 carbs. You CAN eat starch! Oh and BTW it was all pretty frackin awesome.

                Just back from the doc to get my full test results. Here are highlights:
                HDL 65 (up from 49 pre primal) ----> ok before, very good after.
                LDL 222 (from 185)----> high before, buthigher after.
                Pattern type: A (middle of A range) ----> didn't test this previously.
                Trigs 84 (don't remember prev.)
                apoB100 151
                Glucose 98
                Vit D 35.4
                Cardio CRP 0.63
                T3-Uptake 37.0 ---> don't know anything about this, it says the ref range is 25-35, doc didn't think it worthy of mention.
                Urine negative for glucose and ketones.

                The doc recommended Niacin and Flax oil for the high cholesterol but didn't mention putting me on statins this time. Said everything else, "couldn't be better" and it's important to remember I was in a high cholesterol range before ever starting PB.

                  Yesterday WOD: I walked for about an hour. Some reason I'm not working out much this week and last week. Next week I'm gonna hit it pretty hard though.
                  Excited to see Mark in person! He took email requests for Qs in advance, I asked about the significance of the Perfect Health Diet's differences from PB recommendations. Basically, PHD recommends a reasonable amount of carbs every day, from white rice even, and not all that much protein - significant and interesting departures from standard paleo.

                  Yesterday food: b'fast a bit of yogurty w/ blueberries, not much food really. Lunch I gave in to an old craving of mine and had a lamb gyro from a street cart. I love street food and gyros are my fave. How much bread is in one pita, anyhow? Dinner was a huge salad, same as yesterday's, with beef fried rice. I made it with about 1/2 the rice and twice the beef you'd normally expect, an egg, some green beans, garlic, all fried in lard and seasoned with wheat-free soy sauce and lemon. It was all from leftovers but it really tasted great.

                  Today: IF till noon, eat a huge brunch - probably an omelette w/ cheese and spinach, a salad, and some mashed sweet taters. Dinner will be leftover lamb chops w/ greens, or possibly a big cobb salad from the takeout. No WOD today, I've got a full day ahead.

                    The ugly: Still working long hours through the holiday, little sleep last night.
                    The bad: slightly hungover, no WOD, very hungry today (lack of sleep + booze)
                    The good: Finally got a pair of Five Fingers! The Trek kind with the sturdier sole. I really kind of didn't want to like them because they just look, well, a bit dorky to me. Damn though they are comfortable! And I'm going to Vietnam and needed some sandals for that anyhow (I am used to wearing Tevas all summer), which is why I opted for the treks.

                      breakfast an omelet of leftover awesome cheese and artichoke hearts, lunch a BAS w/ chicken, dinner - I was hungry all day today so I had a "snack" of fish and sweet potato (from a little shop I just found next to work!) and dinner of leftover lamb chops and green salad.
                      Will take an evening stroll in the vibrams. I don't think the adjustment period will be too hard, and I've always been a lover of being barefoot when possible.

                        Vibrams are good so far, I have only been on a couple of short walks with them, but they are not earth-shattering to me so far. Comfy, yes, different, yes. But more of a sandal replacement than a full-time shoe, I'm thinking so far. Pics are today and a recent "meal 1 of 2". and yes, I'm finally finished with the mashed sweet potato.

                          WOD: 1/2 Murph! Or in other words 1/2 mile run, 50 pullups, 100 pushups, 200 squats, and another 1/2 mile run, all for time. At about 22 minutes in I started getting super dizzy and not feeling right, I think I only got about half of it done. There were some really amazingly buff people at that gym, wow. The winner I think did the full murph in 30 minutes, other guys did it with a weight vest. Anyhow I really feel very unfit today and I shouldn't be - I have been under a lot of work stress and not exercising enough, didn't get much sleep last night, so it's not surprising I sucked today. Definitely though this was a wake-up call - I may have come a long way, but I could come a lot farther still.

                          Food: Bfast just greek yogurt, lunch was a bunch of stuff from the crossfit barbecue, nice food. I brought blueberries and whipped up some fresh cream for my contribution. Dinner was wild salmon, grilled veg, and a salad of feta and tomato. Took another walk in the vibrams, so far no weird stares (but I live in a trendy part of Brooklyn, I've seen them all over the place here). I'm wondering about taking them for a hill sprint session - might try just a few sprints and see how it goes.

                            T your numbers looked pretty good. I think they don't accept the problems with statins outweigh the problems with elevated cholesterol. I never believed it was as big a deal as pressed the last thirty years.
                            Those chops looked great.

                              Today "meal 1" was an egg / feta / bacon / spinach scramble with a very smal serving of fage + berries. "Meal 2" was shrimp / tomato sauce over bacon sauteed squash, and a salad. Had dessert of berries + cream. No snack, but no workout. Feeling good - pants feel loose again, I ought to go get weighed at some point just for fun. Need to workout more though - it is now officially summer.
