  • I work out some mornings at 5am and don't eat until around 7:15 or 8 but I'm really hungry...so much so that I feel sick. When I get busy at work, yes I can do for hours as long as I've been eating well prior and my blood sugar is stable and be ok until around 5 then I'm hungry all over again. Its like its ferocious when I get hungry sometimes.

    The first time I went until the afternoon without eating was by accident. Got really busy, just couldn't get food. I realized I felt fine, was just a little hungry. Still had energy and everything. Since then I've been doing more working out in the morning and not eating until afterwards, usually at lunch time. I don't really IF that much, but I've found if I just get my brain around it I can go without eating for quite a while if necessary. It's surprising; I used to always have to eat every couple of hours and would kind of worry if I wasn't going to be near food for a while. Now I'm good with it.

      From THIS post by Mark (back in November of 11) - When we’re sitting in front of a window, however, the exposure is different. Glass blocks the shorter-wave UVB rays while allowing most of the longer UVA rays to pass through. In short, we’re receiving the more damaging rays without the normal protective benefit of vitamin D production.

      Just a heads up.

        I LOVE the tail on a chicken when I roast one. It's the very first thing I eat as soon as it cools enough not to burn my mouth. It NEVER re-heats very well and it is SO tasty!

          I keep it wide open, as long as it isn't raining. And, as the roof's low, I sometime's just stand by the window, lean on the frame and watch the sky whilst drinking my coffee.
          Cheers anyhow.

            So you're covered then . . . or, erm, *uncovered* as it were . . . *shrUg* . . . I pretty much link that blog post anytime I see *vitamin D* and *window* in the same sentence.

                  I like that. I want a very good quality 8" chef's knife. Santa knows.

                  • I told Santa I want a subscription to Cook's Illustrated. Not all their recipes fit into paleo eating, but a lot of them do, and they do some good stuff on techniques. I keep borrowing them from friends, and I want my own to keep.

                              My blood pressure always makes any new nurse scuttle for another machine, thinknig the the one just used was miscalibrated. I always ask what it is, nod, and say "yeah, that's about right. A little high for me, but about right." Same thing with the thermometer, They'll check it, I'll try to ask what it is before they scuttle away for another one, and them it's right for me (if I'm at "normal" body temp, I'm running a fever.)
                              I always try to warn any new phlebotomist that s/he'll need a kid's size needle and that my veins rolls. Why they never believe me until after a few stabs in beyond me. The ones I deal with all the time have a kidlet sized needle waiting, as well as a second nurse to talk to me so I don't pass out when they stab me. Even though I'm type O- and not hemophiliac, I'm a phlebotomist's nightmare.


                              YKYPW you end up reading the ingredients for a vegan gluten free bread out of morbid curiosity and laugh, only to watch some frail young woman come up and buy it while you're laughing.
                              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!"

                                Fiance says +1 on blood pressure. His is still very low. You know, "despite" all those "unhealthy, saturated animal fats".
