    To refresh - that was a reference to the input from barefoot genital.

    • Yeah, I got that reference. I was making a joke, but in all seriousness I really DO take off my shoes while in my seat.

      • k well I am sipping my coffee. I was hungrier yesterday than normal. But I had a few more carbs than normal on Sunday (family dinner) and I had a few more carbs yesterday (half a cantaloupe for one thing) so I am a tad hungry but will push through. I want to get the dairy out of my system. Butter doesnt count, right? I just now thought of that.

        But I think I might have issues with dairy. I have had dairy all my life, in varying amounts, and I had some different yogurt the other day and realized how much stuffier I got later. And I am always a little stuffy, I just thought due to outside allergies, I really didnt know nor pay attention. I just thought it was the way it was. But I had it two days in a row before I made the connection. So now I am wondering about my relationship with dairy. uggh

        How long does it take to get stuff like that out of your system? I might do the whole 30 starting with this fast.

        • I'm sipping my BP coffee. On last week's fast, I had BP coffee and sauerkraut. I'll forego the kraut today. I still don't feel like I'm truly fasting when I'm enjoying fat in my coffee.

          • I can tell ya the salt water this morning? I actually enjoyed. Never thought that would "hit the spot"

              Conditions that favor botulism include a high-moisture, low-salt, low-acid environment in which food is stored without oxygen or refrigeration.

              That kind of ferment is a lactic-ferment. The lactic acid should produce an acidic environment. And if it didn't ferment, you'd soon know. It wouldn't taste or smell or even look right.

              As for "low salt" -- you should be safe there. I assume you added plenty of salt. The main reason for adding salt to these ferments is, I take it, to inhibit bacteria other than the lactobacilli -- they don't mind it.

              • Yes, it is funny. Intellectually I KNEW there could be no botulism in there, but emotionally...somehow my mind started making stories of a new, exotic botulism that could only thrive in MY sauerkraut!

                  and maybe mine too. I went to my pantry the other day, thought it smelled like a dead mouse. But I think it might be my kraut

                  • 26.5 hours in and I'm getting ready to go to bed kinda hungry. I had about a tablespoon of butter in my coffee this morning, and that's been it for any calories. I have a 6:30 am, 1 hour meeting tomorrow, then will hit Starbucks for a bit - I don't know if I'll have regular coffee or a cappucino. Should be home by 9 a.m. or so and will get on some bacon and eggs.
                    Had a pretty good workout today - Convict Conditioning. I've just completed a level on my squats, so will next move from half-squats to full squats. The fasted workout is really no problem and I am definitely getting stronger.

                    • Does turmeric in your BP coffee break the fast?

                      • Mine went awry. But I did keep things in check and have lost a couple pounds this week. Seems like I gain during the middle of the month. It takes me the last week of the month to get it back off and maybe a little extra, and then I make some forward progress the first week of the month. Weird, I know but that has been my pattern the last few months.

                          Nope. It's fine.

                            My initial question would be does turmeric in your coffee even sound good. But now that you've brought it up, I might have to try it. Does this have some basis in a cultural norm somewhere? I've never heard of it.

                              Sound good? Not at all. But I can't taste it; I'm guessing both being bitter. I couldn't even defend a reason why I tried it - health benefits of turmeric, for sure, other than that - I've got nothing. I love it, though!

                              • I havent been able to drink my BPC of late. I just wasnt digging it. And I think that is partial why my fasting didnt go as planned. That and a few higher carbs for the day before, but still within the curve for losing. I was just plain ole hungry.
