DiabetesCanKissMyButt: Thanks! Please do not bow to me. I am the student here. Doubles is fantastic and I am really going to miss doing all that working out. I haven't hit the fitness lifestyle part of the book so don't spoil it for me! Doubles is great because it allows me to really sweat which is great for my spirit. I guess I should meditate more! Thanks for being the 1st person to talk to me here!
Missed posting the last few days. I was eating lots of meat this weekend because we bought a local grass fed cow. I rendered all the suet and was so happy I fried a sweet potato. Made a burger last night from it. wow. flavor and it was only peppered and salted.
Here is today so far:
B: 2 organic eggs fried in a thin pat of organic butter, 1 greenshakeythingy (think BeachBody)
S: 10 almonds, 1 can tuna
L: 6oz grilled chicken breast, 2c mixed greens, balsamic vinegar + olive oil, 1/2 tomato
S: 1c watermelon, 1 piece of raw broccoli, 1" carrot stick, 2 radishes
Dinner: will be making some rainbow trout (whole fish) on the grill, asparagus in olive oil, maybe some mixed greens?
mmm, rainbow trout. Takes me back to my childhood- fishing for trout in the creek behind our house and mom frying them up for dinner.

I love hot sauce! Care to share your homemade recipe? Thanks!
Oh man. Its from Sauveur. I love that magazine.
Home Made Hot Sauce
Slightly time consuming, but really simple.
2lbs of fresh cayenne peppers (tops removed)
3 Tbsp sea salt (or kosher)
Add all peppers in food processor. Add salt. Puree until a liquid
paste. Place all contents in mason jar. Place jar in a dark cool area
for 3 days. After 3 Days, add 3 cups of white vinegar. You can add the
mixture to a bowl and then mix well and then place in 2 mason jars or
cut back on some of the vinegar to make it fit in one. Place the mason
jar back into the dark cool area. I put mine in a root cellar. Leave
undisturbed for 5 days. After 5 days, mix well, and pour through a
sieve. You should have hot sauce. Trust me, this "aint no red Devil."
Discard the solids, or keep them as a paste and use in some Asian
6 days later and my eating is all messed up. Trying to eat more fats and cleaner animal sources. I've been eating duck eggs lately. Pretty good actually. Still having problems with the issues of eating foods from my old diet. I am not eating any grains, but I had some lentils the other day. I also notice my hunger is off the hook! Saturday I ate grass fed ground beef burgers and a local chicken breast, a bunch of capers, olives, buffalo mozz, olive oils, and then I was passed a lentil salad. I kept eating so much that night.
Yesterday was ok. I still am doing Shakeology and may still keep it up. Its helping for afternoon fuel. I know its probably not wise, but its only 140 cals total. It can;t be killing me, since its all carbs from berries anyways.
Here is today's meals:
S: 1/2avocado + sardines
L: mixed greens, red cabbage, red peppers, 1/2avocado, 3oz duck confit + olive oil + vinegar
S: organic nectarine
D: question mark...I forgot to take some beef out. boo
