    Yeah, the height/weight charts are "scary" when you are short
    I was "stuck" at 148 for months!

    Counting calories/macros, increasing my protein, and exercising more for the past few weeks has resulted in a 2lb loss!

    You were being a pedantic jerk, not supportive but I'm not sure you understand the difference.

    In any case... Once you have brought profanity to the mix.........

    Everybody else. The Please Don't Feed The Troll sign is hereby being put up.

    The protein was KEY to ending the sugar battle. I do know that.

    +1. It also helped me kick the grains. Lesson learned, get 1 gram per lb of body weight the protein! Measure for a while, until you can do it by sight. I hadn't read this thread for a few days and I just did a quick scan of it. I saw someone mentioned cortisol. That's what I've been researching today. Its disappointing. Looks like I'm going to have to eat livers and kidneys. I don't think I'll be able to get brains. Why do I need brains, livers, and kidneys? Well, it seems the best thing to block cortisol is Phosphatidylserine. The best source of Phosphatidylserine is cow brains. The supplement Phosphatidylserine used to be made from cow brains. After the mad cow scare manufacturers switched to soy. So I'm off to gather up some more recipes for brains, livers, and kidneys. Oh yea, chicken hearts are supposed to be rich in Phosphatidylserine.

I`ve heard many people say they thank their disease for teaching them certain lessons in life; I hope you were on the receiving end of that as well Cheers

    Shit...pedantic...I had to look it up.

    pedantic--Characterized by a narrow, often ostentatious concern for book learning and formal rules.

    I found some game meat blends for sale on the net that are a mix of muscle meat, liver, kidney, heart, and tongue. They come in goat, elk, red deer, white tail deer, and bison varieties. I'm using them for all kinds of great cooking like meatballs and marinara and meatloaves. It's a great way for those of us who know we should eat more offal but are still a little squeamish to work it into our diet.

    My condolences about your sister, Patty. Yes, I did learn a lot about appreciating every moment of life and really living it in the moment.
    I have one year until 50. Awesomeness is worth it.

    Kind of fits. Don't you think? Particularly the ostentatious part.

    Yes, the company is called Grande Natural Meats (Grande with an e like the Rio) Their website is ElkUSA.com They sell these blends in their "dogfood" section quite inexpensively because they can't get people to buy the offal. They swear it is all human quality stuff and no intestines or anything in the mix. So, if psychologically you can get past ordering "dogfood", these are a really good deal. They also sell all kinds of other cuts of game meats, not just these ground blends.
