    It's actually brand new, haha. I haven't used it yet. I bought it on a whim, but I didn't know if it was a healthy choice.

    Primal cookware?

    Howdy, y'all. I'm in the market for new cookware-- specifically, a new frying pan. I've been using a teflon non-stick pan for a while now, however I've been reading a lot of nasty stuff about Teflon...

    To be honest, I haven't got a means to record my HR during exercise. I only record it when I take my BP. The HRs listed in my updates are at rest. An HR monitor for use at the gym would be a good...

    Urine question

    Certainly this isn't the most enticing topic for the nutrition board, but at the moment I feel fairly confident that my problem is a food-related one.

    Thanks! Just have to make sure I keep it off-- which, as I understand it, isn't too hard for fasters. When my glycogen stores have been topped off, I'll be hitting the gym!

    Yep, it was about 19 pounds. It's not as huge a difference as I'd like, but my pants are a little more baggy and I feel lighter, so it's all good.

    I decided to take it slow. I had a...
