    PrimalwannabeGirl, do people need to set up an acct in order to view your photos? (I was prompted to register on that site)

    On another subject, I would love to hear how you fuel yourself for your long distance cycling. I am going to be doing some long rides this year and I have been wondering how to manage it, whether to abandon the low carb thing on those days...seems like that's what most people do. I don't want to crash and burn.
    I'm a quitter...but I'm back now.

    Try this: http://www.facebook.com/album.php?ai...0&l=e9a4f4a267 for me at 52.

    For the kind of cycling I did, I didn't need to fuel with anything special for rides up to 50 miles. A banana afterwards was sufficient if it wasn't time for a regular meal. For multi-day long rides (like cycling across New York State) I did carry trail mix with dried fruit, dried coconut flakes and salted nuts. The fruit was great energy, the salt was good and the coconut and nuts provided longer-lasting fat energy. LOTS of water.

    Since I wasn't racing, just basically cycling all day and stopping for meals, I didn't need to carry much besides the water and little baggies of my trail mix. We stopped at restaurants and I would eat applesauce a lot.

    I love home-made trail mix!! It's great to keep in the car too, for times when your starving and your next meal is a few hours away......

    52 as of yesterday. I don't journal here but I do have a blog at www.foodforprimalthought.com. Mostly recipes, some commentary and primal lifestyle stuff. There is a section under Ancient History that talks about my journey to a primal lifestyle.

    Isn't eating wonderful? Who'd have thought I'd ever be saying that without guilt?

    I realize this post may be way too late, but if not, before you go surgical, try prolotherapy. I had the treatment for torn (more like shredded) meniscus five years ago and it's still good to go! Go to http://www.getprolo.com/ for a list of docs near you.

    BTW, I am 51.5 years and went strictly low carb 3 years ago on a version of the Cleveland Clinic's "protein sparing modified fast." In about 6 months I lost over 50 pounds, looked and felt great, but didn't have the mental game or fitness piece in place. When I was almost at goal, I took a fall, broke my leg, spent 8 weeks virtually immobile, and fell into the carb cycle again. Gained back all the weight and some additional bad attitude. (smile) I started working with a trainer 3 days a week almost 2 years ago to get my muscles back. We train in a very PB style -- lots of bodyweight exercises and lifting heavy things -- but I have been on again off again with the walking part of the PB program. Through the training workouts, I lost about 6 or 7 pounds (meaning that I lost about 15 pounds of fat and gained about 8 or 9 of muscle), but nowhere near the 60-70 I need to lose to be at a healthy weight. Now I'm back to PB eating (no dairy, grains, sugars, or artificial "substitutes") and, although it's only been about 3 weeks, my body knows the drill. I'm down 6 pounds and I feel better already!

    I'm 49 and will be 50 later in this year. No journal because I am not into journaling.
