    I certainly thinks she's CW, however I am quite sales resistant and in no mood to be astatinated. I did also take medication for high blood pressure and late onset asthma. I have been able to give them up too and I just want a general health check as my father pegged out at age 64. I will also take some evidence to show her with regards to cholesterol and heart disease as I know she has been impressed with my weight loss and ability to stop taking the two BP meds.

    Did my weekly strength training before lunch and have decided to do more bits and pieces of body weight more often.

    One thing about going Primal/Paleo is that I have learned to research stuff myself so that I can make more informed decisions about what I am doing with my body and mind.
    Why use a sledge hammer to crack a nut when a steam roller is even more effective, and, is fun to drive.

      It's probably a good idea based on your family history and I am sure you will keep her recommendations in perspective. Apologies for assuming the doctor was male - good grief total faux pas!

        These things happen. Although, for me it'd be a total cockup.

        Since starting my primal journey I have found that doctors don't know it all. In fact, I suspect I now know a lot more about nutrition, cholesterol, weight loss strategy, fitness and my body than she does.

        • Its spring! Time to add some muscle and lower the body fat.

          Over the years I've experimented with all types of training from triathlon to crossfit types of training before it was called Crossfit. Its my personal experience that weight training is by far the fastest way to change the look of your body. Combine weight training with the Paleo/Primal diet and you have the best possible combination. What works best for me is training body parts twice a week along with two interval workouts at the track. Here is my current workout, I'm usually working out in the gym for about 45 minutes per session, take a 1 minute rest between sets, and use supersets to intensify the workout. Keep in mind this is not a beginner routine but it can be modified to any level of strength and conditioning:

          Mondays and Thursdays - Chest and Back (Flat and Incline BB Bench Press, Pullups, Seated Pully Row, Supine DB Laterals, One Arm DB Row, Dips and DB Stiff Arm Pullovers)

          Tuesday and Fridays - Morning - Shoulders and Arms (Seated DB Press, DB Lateral Raises, Bent over DB Laterals, DB Curls, Tricep Pressdowns, Scott Curls, Tricep Pushbacks) - Afternoon - Intervals at the track 10 X100 meter sprints

          Wednesdays and Saturdays - Legs (Squats, Hack Squats, Thigh Extensions, Leg Curls, Calf Raises)

          Sunday - Rest Day

          Diet - Back to basics - High fat, medium protein, low carbs Monday thru Saturday, Sunday is a refeed day, high carb, low fat. Old school body building diet for the next month - lots of Steaks and Eggs baby!

            Far too much for my lazy carcass. I do intend to do more low impact gardening as well as the daily walks to town for shopping, and, will increase the number of press ups, squats, chair dips and sit ups I do in a day though. I think I'll stick with my weekly strength training, unless I feel lively and put in another session during a seven day period.

            I have not lost any weight for months now and must cut down (or out) the pistachios and mixed nuts of an evening.

            • Weighed myself this morning. 183lbs. I have decided to get strict for a couple of weeks:- No potatoes, no sweet potatoes, no carrots, no parsnips, no fruit, no mixed nut/pistachio suppers.

              I have printed off my allowed foods from the updated Atkins diet first two weeks list. I added some daily treats like dark chocolate and Greek Yoghurt with a little genuine Maple syrup or blueberries. I will allow myself red wine a couple of days a week too. No sense in going daft!

              I shall give it two weeks and see how I do.

                Nigel, feel free to join us on the steak and eggs diet thread in the nutrition section. We are doing a strict old school body building diet of steak and eggs for 6 days and a high carb low fat Sunday experiment for 4 weeks. Check it out.

                  Hmmph. How come when you describe it as "old school bodybuilding diet" it sounds macho and not a peep about it from Choco. But when I call it ketosis, he tells me I have an eating disorder? There's a double standard here somewhere.

                    There was some other troll on the thread duking it out the other night.

                      Ha Ha...Definitely a double standard! Your feedback on your Ketosis diet actually played a part in gaving me the confidence to go ahead and give the steak and egg diet a try.

                        By the way I thought you handled the troll beautifully.

                          Well, I really do think that, if one were to extend this beyond a one month "hack" perspective, it would need to go from "steak and eggs" to "nose to tail critters and eggs" for optimal health. For example, I'm tanking up on some liver today since am going to be donating blood tomorrow.

                          One thing I am trying along with you for the month is dropping the dairy to see if that makes a difference.

                            Agreed, also good point on the dairy. I stopped eating dairy for the first 4 months, then let it back in gradually to see what would happen. I don't think I have a problem with it, but it will be interesting to see if avoiding it helps with the stubborn low belly fat that is so hard to get rid of.

                              Aw, shucks. Well, we do what we can. He did seem to disappear there. I was thinking it was past his bedtime.

                                Right. I don't have an intolerance per se but I think it is just too easy to overeat. Kind of like an open container of macadamia nuts, eh, Kath?
