Awesome gallery....the stuff you do sounds fascinating, and creative. half your luck.
and I can't belive you played cricket! your US pals must have been - WTF?
I know I shouldn't say this, but those sweets look delicious. Mark Sisson would strike me down - just because I have been compliant doesn't mean I don't still crave....mmmm. Gotto get out of here I am salivating...oh
and congrats on the 52, that is amazing. Inspiring.
That KK burger looks good, but I'd use one donut slit in half instead of two whole ones. That would reduce the carbs and make it more primal, right?
That's something I'd have to have just once. I'd just eat if after a super long and brutal workout. :D
Personally, I think they should have used the Krispy Kreme Cheerwine jelly filled donut. I can tell you that in person, the smell was a mix of awful.
I realized something about myself. Something this week sorta got me down, depressed for a bit even. I wasn't really noticing it - but suddenly I had a craving to eat something. So I did, but I was still 'hungry' for something but couldn't figure out what it was. So I thought maybe it was something sweet, so I ate a piece of dark chocolate, still hungry, I treated myself to a whole milk latte. Still fail. I bought a whole chicken from the Co-op. I ate that and was still hungry, but I was full. no flavor or amount of food would suffice.
When I realized it was because I was neglecting to think about the thing that was bugging me, I suddenly stopped being hungry.
Duldrum triggered hunger .. perhaps.
I've had days like that too. I'll eat so much meat that I'm completely stuffed, but still *hungry*. But I'm too stuffed to eat. But I'm still hungry. Weird.
BTW, I just read the 52 lbs thing - missed it the first time through. That's awesome work, man. Keep it up!
Regarding the hunger thing - I thought maybe my hunger was being triggered by some depression/hunger thing, but after today - I'm pretty sure that's not the case based on some recent things. Maybe it has something to do with the change in season and cold weather starting?
I'm glad Halloween is over .. and all the candy is gone. I think total I ate 25 pieces of candy corn in October. Crazy!
Looking forward to Thanksgiving and an All Primal Feast!
Have taken a 10 day break from MDA. amazing! I still remember how to be primal!
Have dialed in how to get the grill going quickly, made some excellent mash rutabega.
Weight loss has hit a plateau for now. I lose 1 more pound for the last 3 weeks. I have been a tad more lazy, perhaps it's that season change/daylight thing. Work is interfering more. I have been lifting heavy things as a result.
Need to get back on some kinda running things again.
I am trying to get back on after a 10 day break too... I hope the break affects my monster plateau, good luck with yours...
@Mog I added another 10 day break from MDA Journal posting! Haven't weighed myself since. I think it's the season change thing going on.
Still sore from boxing on Sunday.
It's Thanksgiving in America. This year .. it's all primal and i'm up early to get started on the turkey b/c it's HUGE!
I post this link on my facebook page every T-Day - It's like a Mega Fauna Frankenfood
White Castle Turkey Stuffing
1991 Cookoff Winner
10 White Castle hamburgers, no pickles
1 1/2 cups celery, diced
1 1/4 tsp. ground thyme
1 1/2 tsp. ground sage
3/4 tsp. coarsely ground black pepper
1/4 cup chicken broth
In a large mixing bowl, tear the burgers into pieces and add diced celery and seasonings. Toss and add chicken broth. Toss well. Stuff cavity of turkey just before roasting. Makes about 9 cups (enough for a 10- to 12-pound turkey). Note: Allow 1 hamburger for each pound of turkey, which will be the equivalent of 3/4 cup of stuffing per pound.

I have been away from the forums for a while, I'm nearing a year!
Weight has only changed slightly, frankly I haven't had as much time for training but eating primal has never been easier.
My biggest let down right now are the fact that my spring seasonal allergies have resurfaced, albeit not nearly as bad - but they are back. Perhaps I should still spend less time outdoors in April.
I'm also looking at a new goal for August - to complete the warrior dash!
Anyone else in NC up for this? Heck I'd be interested in travelling to PA to do that one
