  • Sure, Danish! You can read it any time!
    I sent it to a bunch, but no one responded :/
    I guess I'll get enough of that on Wednesday.

    Yes me2, I'm a Creative Writing major
    I will also have to write a play by... yesterday Y_Y
    Wordsmith... laughs! :P

    Totally got bored ZCing. So I calorie cycle now.
    It works wonders... the weight comes off fast. 3-4lbs a week, such a difference from PB...
    I think it's psychological... feeling restricted makes me want to break all the rules.
    If I'm not doing any challenges I naturally eat VLC.
    I had a carb day today with nut butter and some fruit, then a giant pork chop.

    I'm getting really sick of pork :/


    I'm really sad lately. Feeling an indescribable emptiness. I don't feel like I can trust anyone, or have anyone I really love. It scares me a little.
    I kinda get caught up in imaginary worlds (i.e Buffy-verse or story writing)... but the magic fades.
    I think I'll eventually get used to being alone.
    I always do.

    Just have to work out through the initial flu

    • That feeling of infinite sadness over a world you didn't create is why my stories are usually set in a dystopian future. Think Dark City meets Blade Runner meets Brave New World. When you come up for air out of one of those stories, that sadness isn't quite as poignant.
      Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"

        Hi Diana - I've enjoyed reading your posts; shows you are knowledgeable and friendly!

        Anyway, for what its worth, Bee Wilder highly recommends eating only protein and fat. I followed that way of eating for a while and simply LOVED it! How fab not to have to even COOK veggies!!!

        But some kind soul reminded me that there are nutrients in those veggies that my body still needs and they are not BAD for me and they really don't take THAT long to prepare... so I've added the hateful veggies back in (but, since it's Bee's pgm, most are well-cooked; not much raw for me...).

          1. Fat and indigestion. ZC requires adequate amount of fat. Too little will starve your body and make you lethargic. Too much will make you hurl.
          I'm not sure what a perfect amount is yet (oh, boy I predict many nights of feeling queasy before I find out) but 80% is way too much.
          Next time I'll try for 60%.
          Hi! Yes, if you are not used to "high fat", you will need to work in to it a bit more slowly, it sounds.

          I recall being told, when I first began my "high fat, low carb" way of eating last August ('09), to fry some bacon, take bacon out of pan, add butter to pan, fry/scramble a couple of eggs, pour all of eggs and fat out of pan on to plate with bacon and eat/drink every last drop. Uh, a bit too much too soon. I was SO sick the rest of that day (and I did it for meal one so i had most of the day to try to recover; NOT!)...

          I remember people telling me to eat a stick of butter a day on ZC and I couldn't do it. Now, even when I know how things work (enough to explain it to others, at least)
          Would you explain it here, then? I've had this thread open on my desktop for a few days, while reading other threads in between... I thought I'd started at the beginning of yours but now feel like i'm missing something...

          So I'm interested in what your concept of ZC is, what your goal is, how you're determining your ratios or percentages or however you are measuring (for protein, for instance).

          Thanks! (and, ya, I recall going to one of those forums and just being yucked out. all their knowledge was not worth having to wade thru the crud. Appreciate the wholesomeness here!!!)
          I don't know if it's a good idea because my first impression is that it's full of men who have inappropriate avatars of naked women or the include moving signatures of soft core lesbian sex. And that the oldest posts are from 2009... :/

          • Oh, Darth, ignored you for a sec there.
            We have this place called David's Tea, you go in, you stick your face in a giant jar of loose tea, you die, you're reborn, you buy the damned tea in grams, you come home, you drink it, you die, you're reborn... etc.
            There are also hot girls with trays walking around with tiny tea cups begging you to have some... :P
            All I'm sayin' is, you need to be here :P

            For all those who want to read my story and rip it to shreds out of constructive courtesy (which will also be done tomorrow... by 20 people from my class), please send an email to: ellen_makher@yahoo.ca, with the subject: "Story. Now. Thanks. Bye"
            I guess, I should get used to people reading my stuff and hating/ liking it. I could use some opinions because I'm not sure if I'm good at this yet.
            I want to get it published by offering it to a magazine and then getting rejected seems... unbearable right now.

            Bone, it's not so much a guy... I mean, I miss the sex not the bullshit of a relationship. I definitely have some trust issues and body-image stuff that needs to be addressed before I can be comfortable with being nude and then sticking around for the aftermath.
            I'm deeply unhappy even though it doesn't express itself (I know because I become obsessed with the lives of made-up characters who talk about their feelings, are strong and have people who love them). Probably because in my experience friendships have expiration dates.

            It's kinda like what I experienced when I just moved here. Eventually I did get used to being alone and I was totally fine with it, now I just have to go through that again. Kinda like abstaining from drugs

            Definitely falling into old habits here...
            I've missed two days of classes when I know it will massively affect my grades (it did last semester), I just don't want to deal with reality. Every time I think about it, I freak out, and I'd rather numb myself with other people's problems and not think.

            On the food front:
            Pork pork pork... I'm so fucking sick of pork.
            My parents freeze everything and I hate the after taste of defrosted meat. I'm becoming so picky with food.
            I have fruit and hazelnut butter but it doesn't satisfy me.
            I know I want something meaty and fatty but all I have is goddamn pork!

            Can this week be over?
            Can I get my fucking loan so I can do my grocery shopping?
            Who wants to write a play for me?... Y_Y

            I weigh myself every day now. I should stop.
            It's not possible for a banana an orange and some nut butter to make me gain a pound right? right? right?

            • it1958, I just mean I understand PB and the science behind it; the role of insulin, the fat as fuel concept... I'm not a self-proclaimed guru, but people seem to ask me things and I seem to be able to make sense in my answers.
              [But by no means, am I encouraging reliance on my logic if you have access to the father of the Primal Blueprint, Mark Sisson, or other more successful and otherworldly forumers. My "knowledge" was acquired through trial and a ton of error :]

              I'm down with PB, but ZC is a whole new territory. Since you're on top of that maybe you should explain things to me! :P
              How do you deal with the boredom of the diet?! Do you freeze meet? What's going down?
              Did you switch to PB now? (better yet, I might quiz your further with a private message, making you regret to ever step into my journal )

                S'okay Meatzza. You drink tea now, you are washed in the brew of the leaf... or some hippie jesus sounding crap...

                and yes, I need to be in Montreal... which is exactly why I started grad school for a profession I will only ever be able to practice in the US, or maybe Toronto...but never in Quebec, because of zee franch.... bah! Hot girls+tea sounds like my scene.

                As for sadness/gaping abyssseses.... I think I felt that way from about aged 5 to some where around 32 or something... with frequent flurries of HATE/RAGE/SMILEY/HAPPY/KILL.... are you remembering to breathe? It helps. (So does devouring the souls of infants, just sayin'...) It went away when I realized that I am far too busy to care about being alone. Who has time for other people, I'm fucking awesome.

                Hope you start lovin' pork again! (I eat so much grass fed beef that pork is like my vacation.)

                  Nice naiadknight.

                  I pretty much based my world view on the movie's Videodrome, They Live, and Dark City. I've just added Blade Runner, and Time Bandits for balance as well.

                  • Great... So by 32 I should be good, right? Y_Y

                    10 more years and I'm peachy.

                    Fuck. My life is wonderful.
                    I just walked for 15 minutes to the metro and remembered I didn't remember to get my pass.
                    Fuck fuck fuck mother mother fuck fuck.
                    My teacher 1. hates me already cause I missed 9 classes in the last semester 2. gave me a C+ after I made up an excuse (that is touching) because she "cut me some slack" (gee, thanks) 3. even though my work gets A+s I will still fail this course if I don't show up.
                    Oh and she marks people absent if they're late... SO... I'm fucked.
                    Who's fucked? I am.
                    Hard.
                    Arrrrrrrrgggggggggggg.......! I'm so anrgy at myself and life...!

                    I wish this day was over.
                    I wish I didn't have to come to class just to listen to people talk about my story.
                    My story is lame. No one gets it. I mean, it's so easy to crap all over something you didn't slave to create... Why do I have to be there when that happens?
                    I'm not ready for this.
                    I wanna be lied to a little bit more.
                    There's Santa Clause in the world, right?

                    *hyperventilates into a bag*

                    I didn't eat for a few days. Maybe I should eat.

                    My ears are cold.

                    Bye.

                      LOL! I should probably spend more time reading your journal before answering but I've got to get back to skool myself.

                      I've been eating "primal" for about 10 months (wow... 10 months. ha!). Since I'm following Bee Wilder's candida program, it means no: sugar, dairy, starch, grain, fruit.

                      In the "beginning" (of my "fitness" journey), I wanted to get lean. I was on my way the first 6 yrs of the journey but things started to fall apart. I migrated to Bee's pgm, which turned everything on its head (going from SAD to Primal). So it's been a new journey but very interesting! I, too, have learned much and had many errors.

                      We've been blessed with a half beef twice in the past year. We just got a whole pig, so it's all in the freezer, yes.

                      Boredom? I'm too busy to be bored. And I'm looking at food totally differently. While a while ago, I wanted something to make my tongue happy, now I know that I need to bathe my whole self in the proper nutrients. And that's what I get when I follow a primal way of eating.

                      So, I still want to get lean, but first and foremost now is to get HEALTHY. You're so young and I've only read two of your threads so I don't know all you're dealing with (health-wise). I can only pray that you will stick with this to heal and stay healthy.

                      At this time, I'm eating twice/day. Eggs, meat, veggies (not ZC, but usually under 20g). I've got lots to read and a family to care for; it keeps me busy and food is fuel.

                      All the best to you! Good luck on your book! I'm sure it is NOT fun having something you've written criticized by fellow students (who don't know any more than you know); I hope it is a learning experience for you and that you grow from it.

                        I like it.
                        I think it's good.
                        I feel like a glowing woman after child-birth. I've created something!
                        Although come Wednesday people will have to discuss it in front of me... :X scarrrrrryyyyyyyyy

                          But I finished all of Buffy!

                          I am so fucked. But I don't wanna think what missing my own story presentation would mean.
                          La la la la ... not thinking about it... la la la... screwed and don't care....

                          I freaked out.
