    I could barely read past the word Vitamix for $379

    On alcohol, from what I've read, wine will throw you out. Hard liquors will not. Just taking a wild guess, I think it's the sugars, not so much the carbs per se. But, what do I know?

    Have a great day.

    You are so funny! Are you a Costco member? Or know one who will buy it for you?

    Funny thing today, I am not hungry. I had my typical "breakfast", so no change there. And I am only mid way through my 3rd clean day (this time around). It is 2:30, which is about when I eat my lunch, I am drinking a cup of tea with cream and coconut milk in it, and just had 2 oz of gouda that I brought for lunch. I am going to save the avocado I brought till I get home in 2 hours though. Just not really hungry. Weird that!

    Well, I will say right here, I am gonna drink the wine and I am likely to drink a good amount of it. I will just do the best I can till then, and plan a start over on Saturday. Or, I could go to the Low Carb site and find an acceptable alcohol drink-which I would only need one of, cause I am one cheap date I tell ya!

    so I googled it and well guess what Mark actually had an article on alcohol...Definitive Guide to Alcohol on a Low Carb Diet | Mark's Daily Apple

    So red wine it is, and now I don't feel so bad having one every once in a while with the hubs.

    what is crown, scotch? I think it falls right in after red wine. He has red wine as the top choice.

    Well how is this for a kick in the pants...before I started Primal in August of 2011, I was doing low carb and had lost 22 pounds. But was feeling uncomfortable about the fake stuff. I had already started easing that stuff out of my diet when I found MDA. When I started MDA, for some reason (and yes I read the book) I stopped doing low carb, well stopped VLC. I stopped tracking for the most part, started eating more red meat.

    Well I just went back to the days I was tracking before I started Primal and well you guessed it, my weekly averages were pretty much the same as what I am trying to do now, but it seemed like less work. I wasn't trying to limit my calories or protein, nor was I trying to increase my fat. But once I stopped doing induction (at less than 20g of carb a day) and started feeling good, I was averaging 30g of carb, 150g of fat, and 70g of protein and 1750 calories! and losing weight. go figure.

    Even funnier, my "breakfast" was pretty much the same as now (I was using eggs instead of whey, but I am now just using the whey up and had planned to do eggs when I run out).

    So that actually makes me feel better. I can relax a bit (not on carbs) I did it before and I can do it again.

    yes, and that I was doing it with much less stress on the numbers. Although I have to admit I am not sure I got into ketosis, the stix did not stay purple, but we all know how unreliable they are. I don't remember exuberant energy, but I was getting things done.

    I have noticed lately that my creative juices (my brain ideas) have started to go crazy. The next step is to actually do some of the stuff I dream up!

    Yesterday was a good day, 4th clean in a row. I am still waking up with puffy fingers, which I don't understand. Then about 3 hours awake and my rings start spinning. It is weird. But it makes me start thinking "maybe my lowest weight is not first thing in the morning, maybe I should take one day and weigh every hour" then I realize why it is a good thing I don't do the scale anymore!

    Sleep continues to be wonderful. I am taking the 5htp, but not 100% certain it has an effect but will continue until I am done with the bottle and see what happens. I have started to track my meds and supplements in MFP, so that I will know what I was taking and when, and so I can remember if I took them or not. I am terrible about remembering to take my meds. In all the years I was on the pill, I don't think I remember one month straight without having to double up at least one day. Cannot believe I didn't get pregnant!

    So sleep last night 94% efficiency, I was in bed 8:15, and slept 7:31, there was one very long straight stretch and 3 shorter ones. I still don't pop happily out of bed, never been a morning person though, so this may never happen!

    STATS:
    Calories 1697
    Carbs 28g (30g)
    Net Carbs 19g (20g)
    Fat 150g (140g)
    Protein 72g (75g)
