    Listening to the Real Food Con for the fourth day and enjoying all the presentations. I really like the science presentations, the food/cooking lessons are a bit wacky. Why do the men dress like chefs and the women dress like they are taking time out from their exotic dancing careers? That stuff freaks me out and distracts me. If I was going to give a cooking demo, I would wear either very plain chef-type garments or some kind of funky paleo t-shirt. I wouldn't have waves of hair all over the place, six pounds of cosmetics, or any cleavage showing. But that's just me, and come to think of it, no one is asking me to do a cooking demo.

    Jonathan Bailor's presentation "Eating more and exercising less to burn fat and boost health" is really terrific. Real Food - Jonathan Bailor | Real Food Con I highly recommend it if you have time.

    Woke up very early full of energy and wide awake. My three nights are done, yay! Been listening to the Real Food Con and working in my kitchen. Strained my beef broth that has been in the slow cooker for 3 days. Made a paleo pizza that was mostly veg. Had a banana with coconut milk, hemp seeds, and a little honey. That is my current favorite treat. I don't feel bad about it because it has a lot of nutrition. My eating has been really clean and I have not had sugar cravings.

    My activity level has gone way down without my FitBit! Hmmm.

    I know this is my imagination, but my fingernails grow so fast I can't keep up with them.

    Didn't mean to do a lot of cooking today but I guess I did. Made up a double batch of paleo bread dough and put it in the fridge. Defatted the bone broth and divvied it up. Had chicken and avocado for dinner. Hmmm, that doesn't sound like much cooking at all. Lots of washing up though!

    I'm watching Skyfall for the twentieth time. Daniel Craig has just about the most amazing body ever. Is he half leopard?

    The food presentation in the Real Food Con today was especially lame. A juicer? Really? No, actually I never actually did wonder to do with my fruit pulp. I normally consume it when I eat the fruit. She also uses a big food processor and a blender that is maybe ten times more powerful than mine. And she has the obligatory massive waves of hair all over. Sorry, I'm not eating anything from her kitchen. She probably lets her cats walk on the counter.

    I am with you on the waves of hair and cleavage falling all over the place No thanks! I tried watching some of the podcasts that you had links to, but I guess you have to pay to get on to listen once the initial listening period is over?

    HAHAHAHAHAH

    I agree with your assessment. However, the sweet potato bacon latke sounded great, I may try that out. In my own kitchen, thank you very much.

    Hah! Despite all of my snarky comments, I really enjoyed the whole Real Food Con and I can't believe I listened to all of it, some of it twice. I hope Sean replays the thyroid presentation, although I took copious notes. Each group is only available for 24 hours for free. Sunday is replay day, I think he picks the most popular four or something like that. Virtually all of the presenters are clearly very intelligent and reasoned people, and it makes me happy that such people are working to get everyone to eat REAL FOOD.

    RE: the thyroid presentation. Although I just got a clean bill of health, I didn't have extensive thyroid testing and for some reason I am wondering about it. I guess because I feel it is underappreciated by everyone, including mainstream health providers. Orecchio says your temp on waking s/b > 97.4. I've taken my temp every day on waking (well, for me what passes as waking) and it has been 97.2 - 96.4. My resting pulse is in the low 50's. But this has always been so. I'm not going to run back to the doctor and ask for more tests, but I think I will keep an eye on this. I've always been on the 'low side' of everything - in fact when I was in school the nursing instructors used to borrow me for vitals. My blood pressure was routinely in the 90s with a low heart rate (frequently below 60) and temp in the 97s. They liked to test the students on someone who fell outside the norms. I used to think this was pretty cool but now I would rather just be normal. Not that it really makes any difference. But it surely won't hurt anything to follow some of her recommendations for diet. I have bought some dulce and am enjoying putting it on everything, and the epsom salt foot bath is really nice also.

    Well, my beef stock is a bust - what a disappointment! It is not gelatinous at all, it is watery and tasteless. Tried to make egg drop soup this morning and it was horrible, despite boiling down the stock. Maybe I need to cook it at a higher temp? I had it on low, which is what the manufacturer recommends. Will try something different next time.
