    Have you ever had that stuff dry on you?

    • Hey PB, if you ever wanted to dig into the research and science regarding the diets of early humans this is your paper/lecture. Simply one of the best I have read (a little heavy on the science jargon but well worth the slog). Well researched with great references - all great reads on their own. Enjoy!

        Thanks, canuck. I'm always up for some hard science.

          Like a chocolate massage, the okra is licked off afterwards: It's sorta like a mother cat cleans her kittens, you'd be sparkling clean in the end...

            I love okra... and was well and thoroughly abused today during my deep tissue and pressure point release session.

            So I may NEED you!

            • Wow, Paleobird, that's a great picture of you. It's so hard to follow these journals I'm sorry I didn't respond earlier.

                Thanks, sb. I try to keep up with everybody's journals too but it's just not possible. I just sort of random drop in when I can.

                • Dinner last night was a use up the leftovers curry made from the lamb shoulder and some random leftover veggies. Not picture worthy but very tasty.

                  So far in August I have been hitting all my targets for keto macros, calorie limits, exercise. This public accountability (of the Forum Challenge) thing works.

                  • I had a little tupperware cup of my liver pate for lunch and then dinner was picture worthy, a sockeye salmon filet and veggies, but my camera is on the fritz. Who knows why.

                    Anyway. I did well on the keto eating side today. I just ate a whole avocado for dessert. Needed some more fat in the balance. The thing I'm realizing about keto is that it is important to not max out on the protein too much as protein can be converted to glucose and knock you out of ketosis. Hmmm. Interesting.

                    Dialing back on the protein portions is a little hard for me but Dad is helping in that he expressed the idea that I was overfeeding him a bit. He said it all tastes great but we just don't need that much. And he's right. So 8oz of salmon is fine. I don't really need 12. If 12 are one the plate though, I will eat all of it. And I need to hold down the number of carbs so we really don't need mountains of greens and veggies.

                    I did not do well on the exercise front today however. I spent too much time on the new and improved Iodine Thread. It was a really nice discussion going along and then Grizz had to come back from curezone land and start posting nonsense about iodine curing cancer. That man is barking mad.

                    • There is a grass fed beef heart stewing in the slow cooker with some of my homemade marrow bone broth. Drool inducing smells....

                      • Paleobird, your food posts always sound/look so delicious. Do you have any particular recipe source you like? I was just lamenting my inability to get started with any organ meats, as the only one I know how to cook is liver which won't go down my throat. I remember eating beef heart as a kid but have never tried preparing it.

                        • I highly recommend this book for getting started with offal :Amazon.com: Odd Bits: How to Cook the Rest of the Animal (9781580083348): Jennifer McLagan, Leigh Beisch: Books

                          But mostly I don't cook from recipes at all. I just sort of stir in a bit of this, a little of that, and a pinch of something else, stir, taste, adjust if needed.

                          Best pate ever (great way to work liver into your world)

                          2lbs liver sliced
                          cook in 1 stick of butter
                          season while cooking (I like garlic, Italian herbs, s&p)
                          put the whole mess into the blender (or use hand blender) adding 1 cup heavy cream
                          blend the living daylights out of it 'til really smooth

                          put in tupperware cups and chill

                          I sometimes add in other stuff like mushrooms, onions, capers, a splash of sherry while cooking, etc. but I have been finding that this recipe keeps getting better the more I simplify it.

                            That is half of a grass fed beef heart plus asparagus and mushrooms cooked in my homemade bone broth. I couldn't finish that whole piece without the assistance of my dog.

                            • Did my LHT today and kicked butt. I like ketosis. Rawrrrrrr. Sorry, just couldn't help myself.

                              Have gotten to Level 4 ("Mastery") on the planks and squats. Working level 3 (incline) push-ups. Graduated to level 2 overhead presses today. I'm working the negatives on the pull ups but I still have to use a Woody Band to avoid the dropping like a rock issue.

                              Oh and I lost another half pound yesterday and another half today. That makes 1.5 lbs so far since the start of the August Challenge. Five days in so far.

                              Did I mention that KETOSIS IS FUN????!!!!!!!!

                              • Hi Robin - I don't get here nearly as often lately, so I'm laaate in offering my congrats on your story! Well done - it wasn't only a story, but an analysis as well. I found it really useful as well as inspiring . Loving the food p0rn, too. I'm more of a 'slap it on the plate' person, but am earnestly seeking salvation. Probably should get some plates that aren't chipped, for a start .
