    Friday:

    6.5 hours sleep . Breakfast of bone broth. I'm beginning to think that it makes me too hungry and overeat during the day... Also ate a potato. Had coffee in the morning. Lunch was grass-fed ground beef cooked with ginger and napa cabbage and potatoes. Snacked on about an oz of chocolate chips. Walked around for 2 miles. Gym.

    Front squat: 45x1x5, 95x1x5, 115x1x5, 130x1x5, 130x1x2, 125x1x3, 125x1x5
    Bench: 45x1x5, 95x1x5, 100x1x5, 105x3x5

    Could feel that I didn't heal enough from Wednesday, so I didn't do snatches. Just did 10 burpees because the lady at the rowing machine was mean Also sometimes I feel my nerve in my arm gets all numb for no reason, especially when I do front squats. Weird.

    Dinner was 4 scrambled eggs, some potatoes, chocolate chips, and coconut chips. WAY too many chocolate chips, but somehow I stopped wtihout feeling gross. Awesome, but calories 3150.

    Saturday:

    7 hours of sleep. No breakfast. Had black coffee in the early afternoon, sampled a few things at Whole Foods, and ate lunch around 3pm, which is about 15 hours fast (14 if you count the sampling). I ate an apple, 1 lb turkey wing, 1/4 lb chicken liver, and 1/2 lb sauteed organic rainbow chard. And a shitton of lamb soup. Went to the gym to do 20 min calisthenics and jogging. Dinner was a pomegranate, turkey stock, and an egg. And chocolate chips, of course. Calories 2550.

    Despite waking up this morning all groggy and still sleepy, having to roll out of bed for work, my muscles felt friggin awesome. My abs were literally visible under a thinner layer of fat (after flexing, but I definitely wasn't sucking in). It was kind of cool

    Monday:

    6 hours of sleep. Breakfast was some ground beef with eggplant and ginger and a potato. Lunch was the same. And then my coworkers invited me to some dim sum (which I later found to be full of msg), which I had some of. Gym closed at 2, so gave up on my idea of going. Total walking about 3 miles. Dinner was a bunch of chocolate chips and eggs. Calories 3150.

    Tuesday:

    9 hours of sleep. Skipped breakfast and did 3 10-sec sprints down the road. Then walked a mile. Ate lunch of seared lamb neck bones and some kabocha squash, and of course some chocolate chips (this Guittard stuff is really good!). Walked around for another 3.5 miles around a lake in the rain with some friends for Christmas. Dinner was 12 oz wild shrimp and more squash. Also tried to bake a custard thing with just pumpkin puree and coconut flour and chocolate chips, which ended in failure. Oh well. Calories 2300.

    X2 on starchy food = painful gas and irreconcileable trips to the porcelain palace. I've stayed away from the complex starches as found in potato and sweet potato and am having okay luck with simply eating more apples and about two bananas a day. I just thought since we seem to be similar, I'd share.
    Steak, eggs, potatoes - fruits, nuts, berries and forage. Coconut milk and potent herbs and spices. Tea instead of coffee now and teeny amounts of kelp daily. Let's see how this does! Not really had dairy much, and gut seems better for it.

    Thank you! I don't know what to do about glycogen replenishment though - I've started eating a lot of rice, which I think helps with that and the digestion bit too. But I've found that I get less painful movements when I've added a bunch of other stuff along with the starch, including vegetables, fats, and meat.

    Wednesday:

    6.5-7 hours of sleep. Breakfast was about 1/2 lb wild shrimp and a large potato. Lunch was 1 lb wild shrimp and 1/2 lb potatoes. Snacked on kombucha, some sheeps milk yogurt, and coconut chips. Walked around about 2 miles. Then gym.

    Squats: 45x1x5, 95x1x5, 135x1x5, 165x1x5, 170x2x5
    OHP: 45x1x5, 65x1x5, 75x1x5, 75x1x2, 70x1x3, 70x1x5
    Deadlift: 135x1x5, 185x1x5, 235x1x1, 245x1x1

    Dinner was 1/4 lb potatoes, 1 lb purple sweet potatoes, 1/2 lb spinach, 3/4 lb wild shrimp, and the rest of my chocolate chips, and ended eating at 7! Calories 2550. And I don't want to see anymore chocolate for the next MONTH

    I'm eating a lot of wild shrimp to get rid of this 5 lb frozen block. I thought I could defrost it little by little, but it ended up fruitless. $6/lb was still a steal, though. It's worth it, even if I have to eat it in 2-3 days.

    Going to try going back to just potatoes after the new year. Going to spend some time at a friend's house, and they have a lot of SACD (Standard American Chinese Diet) food. Hopefully they respect my gluten-free-ness and I can just eat lamb meat the entire time I'm there.
