    I just signed up for Lake Tahoe. I'm using it as motivation (and a reward) for getting into primal exercise.

    Never tried it. My first concern would be having the oil too hot -- you could end up with a coconut oil based hollindaise-type sauce rather than mayo. I have used about 20% bacon grease (melted and...

    I did the fat fast Atkins-style several years ago -- mostly macadamia nuts and cream cheese. Could only hold out for about three days on that combo. I may try it again though, with more eggs and...

    I checked out the reference on blood glucose -- it has great information. It also details a method of testing yourself for diabetes -- all you need is you glucose meter. I'll be trying that in the...

    Wow -- really interesting. I have been checking my morning glucose on and off for the last couple of months -- and it is often over 100 in the am -- but generally not over 110. It is often lower...

    Get yourself a timer for the office -- set it for a maximum of an hour and then get up and do some stretches, wander around the office, do some jumping jacks, whatever. Rinse and repeat. More often...

    Berries, definitely. 88% chocolate (Endangered Species brand). I use stevia for added sweetness, tho not too much (you can buy the crushed leaf, which is about 30x sugar sweetness. On rare occasions,...

    Good luck with your new journey. You don't have to eat lots of red meat -- but many of us like it a lot. Bacon is generally considered a gateway meat -- most everyone likes it. But again, you don't...

    Two weeks gone by again. I'm slowly working back into regular exercise -- it is very hard to do it all indoors, and darn near impossible with 50-90 mph winds most days. Yes -- close to 100 mph! Not...

    I agree that you probably need to up the fat content of your diet. And you sound really active -- kids and all. But you are probably first off, leptin resistant and secondly, insulin resistant. These...

    It sounds like you need to get very pushy in restaurants. When in doubt, ask. Then ask for your meat naked. Then ask that it be cooked in butter as you are allergic to grain-based oils, or some such...

    I use arrowroot. Make a slurry with water and add until you get the thickness you like. Makes a decent gravy (not as good, in my opinion, as with flour, though.) I don't use cornstarch, as I'm...

    There are so many better things to do. Go for a walk in the sun without sunscreen. Munch on that bacon. Lift a big rock over your head. Find a better person to talk with -- definitely.

    Pork rinds, for sure. I usually just do the cut up veg route -- carrots, jicama, celery -- all give a nice crunch and go great with guac.

    And haven't you heard? Salsa is the new ketchup. I use it...

    Consider that you don't really need to fixate on calories. Anything you use to calculate calories will, of course, count protein calories (protein and carbs are both about 4 Cal/g). But why count...

    I hit 130 with only 5000 Vit. D per day. A bit high and I've dropped the dose to 2000. Everyone reacts differently.

    I have seen (in Jack Krause's blog) that A and D use at least some of the same...

    It actually SAVES time shopping -- you can just skip all those interior aisles, hit the fresh produce and meat departments and out! Much easier!

    Mudlily sounds about right. My scale is quite consistent and always measures higher than the pinch/caliper method by about 3%. Hydration makes a huge difference -- when I've had it done in my doc's...

    Oh yes -- I forgot to add -- Celebrated my 61st birthday at the end of 2011. And had a great time at the Rose Parade in Pasadena.

    Hah! It's been about seven weeks since I've last checked in here. A few reports:

    Survived the holidays with no weight gain. That included two trips with lots of good food (New Orleans and...

    Shirataki noodles are made out of konjac root -- basically fiber and no digestible carbs. They do smell fishy and need LOTS of rinsing -- and I personally still find them vile. They supposedly pick...

    Do check for additives in the rotisserie chickens. Costco's and most supermarkets have additives and plumpers I never eat, so they are off my list. My Whole Foods doesn't do them, so I don't know. I...

    I don't think Grok had books -- just cave paintings that he made himself. He may have told stories and acted them out.

    I read on an iPad. Not primal. I do use orange-tinted glasses most evenings...
