    Health journal June 12, 2012

    Sleep: 7 hours. Not enough after yesterday's exertions. I need 8-9 hours at the best of times, which I just don't get often enough.

    Weight: 153.8

    Food
    Vitamins: check. Plus iron
    Breakfast: Fresh pineapple, bacon and scrambled eggs
    Lunch/Supper: Curried shrimp with spinach
    Snacks: Pork rinds, macadamias, cherries

    Exercise: None in particular, other than minor walking

    Activities: Emptied dishwasher, babysat grandsons, cooking, wee bit of laundry, small errands, hand dishes (lots!)
    5'2", 55 years, Primal since April. Pre-Primal weight loss, from 216.6 to 157.8
    Primal low: 140.2 (Dec. 3) Goal weight: 135?
    Main Primal goal: beating back my CFS enough to function more normally and start writing again

    More and more, our life has been governed by specialists, who know too little of what lies outside their province to be able to know enough about what takes place within it.

      • Sorry, Ecks. I tried coffee with butter in it, before going out to buy expensive ingredients to do the Bulletproof Coffee properly and well, blech. I love coffee, I love butter, but the two of them together... I dumped it down the drain. I almost never dump things down the drain, but I just couldn't finish it. Mind you, I did use salted butter because that's what I had. Maybe I should try unsalted butter...

        • Judge, as for bulletproof coffee, the butter should be unsalted (I tried salted once to, ick!!) and also it needs to be whipped up really good in the coffee. If it is not really well blended, it just looks like an oily layer sitting on top of the coffee. I also put a little bit of cinnamon and also vanilla extract in mine

            • On a totally different note, I'm going to go off on a mini-rant here. I'm doing it on my own journal, so nobody feels targeted.

              Eat your veggies. Really. In so many of the journals I follow, I am seeing way too few veggies, even assuming that the few I do see are mega-portions. I have to jack my own up a bit, for that matter. And right on cue, I find this TED talk by a doctor who cured her own MS, primarily through veggies. Very inspiring.

              • coffee gives me a belly ache, so I stay away from it. Unless I'm really craving a cup - then I have to take an antacid or I'm in trouble. So, no bullet proof for this girl. But, it does sound really yummy - with the butter, vanilla and cinnamon! I would have to add some kind of sweetener though.

                      • Reading ingredients can get so distressing...

                        Concerning bulletproof coffee, I am wary of MCT, to tell the truth. How is that natural, real food? It sounds like processed food to me. Or am I missing something?

                        Now for today's report.

                        Weight: 153.0 New low.

                        Food
                        Vitamins: check

                        Lunch: Big bowl of coleslaw, half tin of sardines (two ingredients: sardines and spring water )
                        Supper: Turkey balls, whomping big salad with three kinds of greens, and peppers, tomatoes, cucumber
                        Snacks: Coconut oil, almond meal, cocoa, stevia concoctions. Trying to find my go-to indulgence.

                        Exercise: 2 km walk. Very slowly.

                        Activities: Emptied dishwasher, cooking, small chores, homeowners' association meeting

                        Comments: I was pretty worn all day, but perked up a bit in the evening and was able to go to the meeting after all.

                          Yes. Enlightening, but distressing.

                          Congrats on your new low!!!

                          • Judg, yes, there's soybean oil in alot of the EVOO mayonnaise I have looked at. It's a little disheartening to see.

                              I completely agree with eating your veggies. they are full of nutrients and antioxidants that your body wants and needs!

                              • MCT oil isn't really "processed" persay it's more extracted. No different then using lemon juice or vanilla extract in that it's just a part of a main ingredient. Otherwise it's pure fat.
