    I don't pay too close attention, but I definitely watch my carbs. I eat below 100 grams, and probably below 80.
  2. Is my fasting blood glucose (70 mg/dL) too low?

    I took my own fasting blood glucose this morning, and it was 70 mg/dl. I've read that anything below 90 is fine.

    Lately I've been doing a little berries (frozen Trader Joe's) and cream with my breakfast (which is sometimes not until 11am). It's a small amount of fruit, and I'm fine with dairy.

    Thanks for the tip. What do you think of just adding more cabbage and water to the existing raw, probiotic one that I bought from the store?

    Sauerkraut FAIL. Can I use a starter?

    I'm really eager to get more good bacteria into my diet, so I made it my mission to prepare sauerkraut. The receipt is easy enough: cabbage + salt.

    However, my sauerkraut didn't product much...

    I'm not really overdoing it in the gym. I used to go much harder, and never had any problems with libido. I base some of what I do in the gym on Chd Waterbury's book Huge in a Hurry, but I give...

    I'm in my early 30s. I don't do full body in those training sessions, and I don't really go balls-to-the-walls (because I don't want to incapacitate myself with soreness).

    Thanks for your thoughts. Yes, I agree that kicking grains and sugar is ultimately good for me. I didn't experience much of a carb flu myself, and after about 2 months, I'm confident that I'm fat...

    I'm doing weight-lifting 3 times a week. I'm lifting heavy, certainly enough to induce plenty of soreness, but not over-the-top. In the past, I've seen much faster results from lifting weights than...

    Well, given the nature of the site (includes info on erections and such), I can see why he might want to be anonymous. He keeps it classy, and that particular article had many citations.

    One thing I miss about eating a grain-based diet is cutting a really good fart. I hardly fart at all since switching to PB. Maybe just a couple pathetic toots in the morning.
