    Talking Super Raw - the FPSJosh ego experience

    Primal Fuel
    AMEN!! I SAY AMEN!! PREACH THE GOSPEL OF THE BACON!! PRAISE THE LORD!!

    (jokes aside)

    Hello, my name is Josh and I live in New Britain, CT, and I just recently started the primal diet. It all started when I watched the documentary Fat Head. That started most of my journey. I'm married and have a beautiful daughter about 9 months old.

    Just like everyone here, lots of people would say that I'm a food evangelist, preaching the Bacon Gospel. I hardly consider myself a food evangelist, mostly because this is the only diet that seems to work for me anyway.

    I also have asperger's syndrome and am very proud to represent fellow grokers who suffer from this terrible disease. (I wonder what the connection is between autism and mothers with low fat diets.)

    Anywho, my sympotoms prior to starting were:
    1. Obesity
    2. High blood pressure
    3. Sleep Apnea
    4. Poor Sleep (wont go away cause I have a baby)
    5. Depression


    Most of them have gone away since then, the exception of which is obesity and poor sleep. I however don't care so much about obesity than I do about apnea. Hopefully I can get off of my cpap.

    Feel free to comment/post/ask questions/make me think. I love learning about food and health, and I'm always willing to change my mind (with the exception being about bacon.)

    Starting a journal is a good way of staying accountable. Congrats for that and for getting rid of high blood pressure and depression! I've always heard that when you lose weight you don't snore as much. I'm hoping that's true for my sake and my future wife's sake.

    You know, dropping caffeine helped with the depression too. I used to need those SSRIs, but going outside helped me get my seratonin back to normal levels too.

    I love how doing what I think should be healthy, IS healthy. Always hated corn/beans when I was younger haha.

    Yeah I'm currently "addicted to caffeine". It sucks. I want it to go away but I need time away from work to be able to do that or I will lack the ability to focus.

    Hello, and why is "raw" in your title? Do you eat a lot of raw food? (I eat high raw paleo.)

    Actually yes. I eat whole foods (mostly because my cardiologist said to eat raw.) That's how I ended up here. And no, I dislike the store whole foods. The only thing I get there is their grassfed beef, and that's if I happen to be in the neighborhood. I like Trader Joes better.

    I have an update on my mother, who is on "Weight Watchers" (which I lovingly call "Fat Haters") is eating your typical low fat diet with skim milk and cereal and sugar every morning. My dad is no better. He lost a lot of weight in muscle on your typical low fat diet.

    My mother says I shouldn't do anything I'm doing.

    God it's so damned difficult to talk logically to people who drank the low fat cool-aid.

    Tonight's Dinner (All organic):
    Uncured Applewood Smoked Bacon (trader joes FTW)
    Grassfed Beed crumbles
    Coconut Oil
    Frieid Flaxseeed fed Chicken Eggs
    Living Organic Lettuce
    One Chopped organic mushroom

    Fry'd em all together. It was soooo good. Who says diets suck anyway?

    Hit the gym this morning! Did high reps to switch it up. 3 Sets of each.

    I'm still pretty weak, and recovering from a videogame addiction lifestyle, so I lost a lot of my muscle mass. Time to get back on the horse!

    Freeweights:
    Lying Pec fly 15 lbs (Each arm 14 reps)
    Sitting Overhead Tricep Lift 20 lbs (Both arms together 14 reps)
    Chest Press 10 lbs (Each Arm Seperately 15 reps!)
    Shoulder Shrugs 20 lbs (Each Trapezius 15 reps)

    Machine:
    Pure Mid Pec Fly 15 lbs (Both arms together 12 reps)
    Tricep Pulldowns 40lbs (Both arms together 15 reps)

    Post workout, I had:
    2 Scoops WPI (Whey Protein Isolate)
    1 Banana
    2 Cups So Vanilla Coconut Milk (10 g of saturated fat and about 9g of sugar)

    1. Blend
    2. Drink
    3. ??????
    4. Profit!!!

    I weighed myself today, and I lost a few more pounds and I'm lifting more/heavier. The weight is nearly dripping off of me.

    It's such a good feeling.

    On a side note, I brought raw bacon to work with me today. Gonna cook it in the microwave. This has a lot to do with my wife's bacon smell intolerance at the moment.

    I call it my EBR. (Emergency Bacon Ration)

    Keep up the support guys, I'm gonna need it. Going shopping tomorrow with the wife.

    I wanted to hit fat really hard for dinner tonight.

    4 Eggs (regular)
    2 spoonfuls of coconut oil
    2 tbsp of organic grassfed butter
    At least 5 spoonfuls of chia seeds
    Topped off with some coconut yogurt
    1 omega 3 fish oil dha supplement
    a glass of chocolate coconut milk


    Still under 100 grams of sugar today folks.

    Still kinda hungry though...

    Primal Blueprint Expert Certification
    Breakfast was 2 Eggs, Protein Shake mixed with coconut milk, chia seeds (3 scoops), one coconut oil spoonful

    Tided myself over by having another in my herbal oolong tea (which made it taste awesome)

    Lunch

    Bacon double burger with steamed veggies, threw out the grean beans (wasn't sure whether they were ok.)

    I also noticed I was able to get up better in the night to change my daughter's diaper 4 times, before passing her off to mommy for some Dos Boobies.
