    I actually ate half a container of macadamia nuts this weekend, closed the top, and put it away. :P

      Well done! Respect.
      Canuck, in case you were wondering, eK and I were having this discussion on another thread about the impossibility of putting a half full jar of m nuts away. This lid just doesn't want to go on.

        Totally get it, I lived in Hawaii for awhile back in my Ironman days and became addicted to M nuts, absolutely love them.

        • Don't post here much, but the steak and eggs diet reminds me very much of a famous old school guru Vince Gironda...
          He was way before his time, look his name up on goggle...
          He was one of the ones who practiced what he preached...

            Yes it was a combination of following PaleoBird's focus on a Ketogenic type of diet and some research I was doing regarding bodybuilding during the 70s that led me to his theories and I decided to start a thread in the Nutrition Forum asking those interested to join in for a month trial of the steak and eggs diet. Feel free to jump on board, its a great opportunity to jump start your fat loss and share some best practices and results.

              Got more strict with carbs this last week. 183 down to 178 pounds. Going to be a bit naughty this evening as I'm eating out with a friend. I shall drink beer, eat poppadoms & chutneys and may even have some rice as part of the meal. Back on the wagon tomorrow.
              Why use a sledge hammer to crack a nut when a steam roller is even more effective, and, is fun to drive.

                Great to hear you dropped five pounds! Go real strict for the next week if you can and ramp up the weight training, see where that leads you. I'm having a high carb - low fat day today but keeping it clean and Primal, lots of fruit which I've been craving.

                  My mate cried off yesterday afternoon so kept in bounds. BBQ for lunch today. It's a Bank holiday and the weather is dry & warm. I will have some red wine with the marinaded olives as I cook the meat.

                  I do still add in the odd bit of fruit when I have a craving. Small Braeburn apple on Friday and banana yesterday. SWMBO is away babysitting for our younger daughter at the back end of next week so I shall have those three days of steak & eggs and do more than my usual strength training.

                          I notice it more around my belly! I've had to buy new trousers and tops.

                          Next hurdle is Monday when it's our 41st wedding anniversary. I had a cunning plan before we got married. Arranged the date five days after my birthday. Get birthday card & prezzies, buy anniversary card and prezzies!

                          • A personal best today! I decided to do a pushup test before starting my weight workout this morning and was able to do 100 pushups without a break - finally!! - after trying to get there for the last couple of months. Not bad for an 'old guy'. This coming Monday I'm shooting for a bench press record 1 RM and on Wednesday trying for a record squat 1 RM. Stay tuned!

                              Well done! I'm way behind you and nowhere near as dedicated. I'm doing press ups nearly every morning and trying to increase by one every time. I'm up to 26 and it looks to be taking two to three days in order to increase by that one. Not bothered as I will get to 100 in the end.

                              • This week was designated as a test week to see where I was at in regards to strength. I've been following a high fat, medium protein, low carb diet, lots of steak and eggs. My training has been 6 day split body building style of workout for the past 6 weeks with two intervals sesssions at the track (10 X100 meters). On Monday I did 1 RM 245 lb. Bench Press. I am typically weak on the bench so this was a decent number for me, a weight I haven't managed in over 20 years. Today I did a 1 RM full squat at 315 lbs. which is a decent number and Friday I'll see what I can manage on the deadlift. Current body weight is 172 lbs
