    Yeah, I think in the end it all comes down to something inarticulable (yeah, that's not a word). A vibe, for me, anyway.

    Yeah, not sure if kind of women you'd pick up would necessarily be the kind you'd really want to pick up? You'd mostly only be able to pick up other scientists or former scientists or people with scientist envy.

      Me and Derp were joking about it last night: I told him to call Rich on little man envy

This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.

      In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."

        I appreciate all women capable of maintaining a conversation and who are multi-faceted, or are even just open to listening to my psychotic babbling and self-destructive tendencies. I consider myself multi-faceted though, with a fascination for many things and an admiration for beauty and art.

                    • Seasons come and go

                      Sleep:
                      1am - 5.30am; 6.00am - 9am: 7.5 hours. Realised that on average I'm probably getting 7 hours these days - whoop!

                      I wonder how much this is affecting my overall mood and happiness? I mean, I really feel good these days. It's like all the things that were wrong with me are one-by-one being knocked back into place. First I stopped binging, then my sleep improved, then my hair started looking great, then my mood got better, and now my energy is rising. Just waiting for the bloat to disappear, the fat to fall off, and the wrinkles to vanish

                      Food / Hunger / Cravings:
                      Wasn't massively hungry today either. Haven't had breakfast in four days... very unusual for me. I think it's because I've been sleeping late: I usually eat between 5.30 and 7, so I've been sleeping through the breakfast hour, and then I don't get hungry again til lunch time. Guess it's to do with gherhln? Saying that, I haven't been very hungry in the evenings though either. I'm blaming the bloat.

                      9.30am - Half a Coffee w/ coconut milk.
                      10.15am - Coffee w/ milk.
                      12.45pm - Lunch: rice cooked in broth, can of wild salmon, half a courgette. Tea w/ coconut milk and sugar.
                      7.00pm - Dinner: Mango and passionfruit smoothie. Broth, a few spoons of rice, can of wild salmon. Tea w/ milk and sugar.

                      Cravings:
                      Dark chocolate (in the afternoon). And now a craving, but I really want to eat fatty fish. Maybe my digestive tract is inflamed? (it looks it).

                      Supps:
                      2 x Vit C
                      2 x Mg-B6
                      2 x Asprin
                      Began Duphaston. Bigger boobies, here I come!

                      Energy and mood:
                      Feel great and positive.

                      Body:
                      Water retention: Bloating is still terrible. I know, I know: I could have just eaten broth and eggs today, but I was meeting a friend for morning coffee and... I didn't have dairy for two days and it hasn't helped. I honestly don't think milk effects me. I hate to say it, but coffee might be a problem. Sigh. From tomorrow, I'll try going without it for a week, and see what happens...
                      Saying all this, it could be hormonal, or it could be from all the wheat I consumed over the weekend.
                      Digestion: 3 BMs. This has been happening a lot lately...
                      Sinuses went crazy earlier.

                      Research:
                      What is with all the Gene Wilder Memes?! A distinct inability to be funny appears to be the only requisite in creating them...





                      Even the parody is embarrassing.


                      The end.

                        Sorry to hear that you've been single for a while and aren't always happy about it. How long have you been single for? My love life has been a complete disaster for the last three years. Most of the time I'm fine with being single, but some times it really gets to me, and I just want to have that special someone to share my adventures with. I know it's not always that simple though.
                        Thanks!!

                        I've been single for about 2 and 1/2 years now. I was married for 1 year before that. I've only been on one date since then! It's not because I can't get a date but I think I just make it too hard when a guy shows interest. When it comes down to it, I just don't think I've come across anyone that I'm really that interested in. I know... it would be nice to have someone to share adventures with.

                        I saw you mention something about getting bigger boobs with the progesterone. Over the course of the last 2 weeks mine have gotten bigger... I was wondering if it's the carrot salads I'm eating. Probably just wishful thinking though. lol

                          Wow, well if you were married before then you probably needed some time to recoup. Although saying that, some people are just made for relationships and bounce from one to the next. My default setting seems to be "ALONE". Even though I have loads of friends, more often than not I prefer to be by myself. I also find it really hard to get enthusiastic about meeting new guys as things never go anywhere. It's a vicious cycle, i'm sure.

                          Are you eating the Ray Peat carrot salad? My bust changes size a few times a month as I retain water there sometimes. Today I seem bigger than usual, but I'm also more bloated than usual, so I doubt it's the progesterone. Sorry, I missed it as well - are you taking prog sups? You have a thyroid condition, right?

                          • Coffee Forfeit Fail

                            Today I was supposed to give up coffee to see if it would improve my bloating. By 4.00pm I caved

                            I can't access restriction mode in any capacity right now.

                            Sleep:
                            Spoke too soon about my sleep improvements! Last night I slept from 1.00am - 4.30am, then managed to fall asleep again at 8.00am to 10.15am. Was so tired for the rest of the day (probably not aided by the lack of coffee ) so I took a nap from 1.00pm to 2.00pm. Total: 6 hours, 45 mins.

                            Food / Hunger / Cravings:
                            Spoke too soon about the hunger as well! Woke up hungry at 4.30am, had a cup of raspberry tea with honey. Was hungry for lunch, but not so much for dinner.

                            7.00am - three fried eggs with turmeric and paprika, tea w/ milk and honey.
                            12.30pm - Lunch: rice cooked in broth, can of wild salmon. Tea w/ milk and honey.
                            7.00pm - Dinner: 1 Mango, 1 medium pineapple. Tea w/ milk and sugar.

                            Cravings:
                            Nothing.

                            Doesn't feel like I'm really digesting food: my tummy feels full. Fasting might do me good, but I really don't have the will power right now... I think when I go to Cali I'll be able to restrict a little more cos' I'll be on the go.

                            Supps:
                            2 x Vit C
                            2 x Mg-B6
                            2 x Asprin
                            1 x Vit D.
                            Duphaston x 2.

                            Energy and mood:
                            Not great today. Felt really tired, and then started having depressed thoughts. In hindsight, I can see this has been setting in for a few days: I've been tired, un-enthused, and haven't wanted to connect or associate with anyone.

                            However, I was able to pull myself out! I felt myself descending into negativity, and then started thinking that these thoughts weren't reality: they were just thoughts. In the same way that happy thoughts fuel me, negative thoughts drain me, but neither are real: they are just methods of inducing
                            different states. So i disregarded the negative thoughts, and knew that I could feel better if I thought more positively.

                            Thinking positively is still a challenge though. It's not enough to "think happy thoughts", because it just creates disharmony between your physical and mental energies. You've got to change your energy, and then your thoughts become happy. I'm not sure how to do this; but at least I was able to switch out of the negative energy mode. That's a good start.

                            Lay on the couch for an hour or so after my afternoon nap, grappling with these thoughts, then my energy came back and I was more productive with the rest of my day.

                            Saying that, I haven't been very productive lately. Everything I do seems to take me so long. I know this is an energy thing too. I am making improvements here, but perhaps I'd benefit from more concerted effort. Instead of focusing on things like bloating and diet; maybe I could concentrate on how to create more positive energy in my life?

                            Body:
                            Bloat might be a tiny bit better today. I look three months pregnant, as opposed to four
                            Digestion: No BM until 5pm. In general everything feels very slow in my gut, which is probably why I'm not experiencing hunger lately.
                            My arms are surprising sore from the "pull ups" yesterday.

                            Research:
                            Been reading this: http://cdn.preterhuman.net/texts/bod...g%20Energy.pdf

                            The navel point is thus said by Taoists to be the starting point for the flow of the
                            primordial life energy, or “chi”, and remains the point of strongest
                            energy storage and circulation in the adult.
                            As I've said before: I believe that everything has an energy, and life results from the interactions of energies.

                            Basically I'm saying: the bloating could be an energy thing. WHOO-WHOO!

                            *Ducks for cover from the skeptics*.


                            Yes: now I too can create Gene Wilder memes...

                            • My default setting seems to be "alone" as well. I'm ok with it, I just get bored sometimes. A friend on Facebook recently posted a picture that said, "All I want is someone to drink protein shakes with and cuddle." I was thinking, all I want is someone to eat carrot salads with and cuddle.

                              Yep... The one and only Ray Peat carrot salad! I'm not on any type of progesterone but I'm pretty sure I need to be. I can't get any tests done for a couple of more months to find out for sure. I haven't had a cycle in 2 and a half years! I was on depo provera shots before that as birth control. I'm not really sure what else I should do to increase my progesterone until I can get back to my naturopath. I'm going to be looking into it though.

                              I'm on a NDT, Natutethroid. It's mostly T3 with some T4. I feel better on it than when I was on T4 only. Didn't you get done thyroid test done recently? Was you free t3 tested?
