My goal was a new and healthy life style. My original research started with Dr. Jay Wortman. I recommend this site
This is a profile from the Gov't of Canada.
I had always told my sons that when it came to the body do what our ancestors did 50,000 years ago. After reading Wortman's site and article in Readers Digest I googled "What did humans eat 50,000 years ago and ended up here. It was time to practice what I had preached.
I'm looking for controlled weight loss, better cardio and strength. I'll discuss strength in full on Monday when I do my weekly "strength tests".
This certainly appears to be a very supportive community. I look forward to getting to know you.
egg and cheese omelette, coffee black no sugar.
Lettuce salad and salmon salad. Blue berries with a touch of cream for dessert.
Snack raw almonds about 20-25
Cooking a BBQ porkchop with ceasar salad. It will be a toss up to see if it is strawberries or blue berries for dessert.
Spartan 300. Time: 14 minutes 28 seconds.
50 hip rotations
50 stride jumps
Next goal is to get under 14 minutes.
Hope you all had a great weekend.

Not a big gaining week in my strength test as my left arm didn't seem to have the jam.

According to fitday. I'm only at 1000 cals today. I can't lose too much more weight before Sept 5 because I'm already measured for the tux I'm wearing at my son's wedding.
Since we're sharing our concerns with each other...I'm wondering...are you eating enough? I guess if you're not hungry then you're probably ok...but it doesn't look like you're eating very much.
(Mainly my concern is for the tux.)
I think so... thanks for asking. I do eat when I hungry and I'm drinking water when I'm thirsty.
Two weeks ago I had 2 "previous normal days." My wife and I had just started to use fitday. Wow no wonder I'm over weight.
My cheese omelette always carries my until lunch. Before it was a scramble egg sandwich, now I don't use bread.
Last week there were a couple days I felt hungry and it shows when I count the carbs. If I keep around 1500 plus I feel great, but the occasional day I don't seem to pack much away and still feel ok.
Today I was on the run so for lunch, it was carrots, a stock of celery, a venison pepperoni stick and some cheese and apple.
Dinner was a cabbage salad, baked halibut and strawberries for dessert.
Just over 1600 calories today.
WOD. Took my wife to see "Time Travellers Wife". :) Good flick by the way.
When the time comes I have no idea how I will pack away 2,500 calories on this low carb lifestyle. That is another 50% volume over what I ate today.
I liked the book so I'm hoping I'll like the movie. That's sweet that you took her.
Venison pepperoni stick...I've never heard of that. It sounds good.
Keep up the good work.
My one son and I deer hunt in the fall. Some of the venison was made into pepperoni. Still have a bit left in the freezer.
Hi Vick. If you are wanting to eat more calories, try adding more fat, or larger portions of protein?
