    Attempted the Bacon Mayo tonight. It was looking great, wonderful color and texture, and tasting good, right up until the last spoonful of fat, which I added too fast, broke the emulsion and it went all goopy. But from what I could tell, this is going to be a winner. Will try again later this week after I fry up some bacon and have more grease.

    One note is that it's such a small recipe, I didn't even bother with a food processor (cause it wouldn't reach the blades on mine). So I used my handheld immersion blender. But there was barely enough for even that to work. Blender may be the best route to go or I might try a double recipe next time with the handheld.

    I found macadamia oil, so I'll be trying to make mayo with that (didn't like the EVOO one either).

    I made MAYO yesterday just the OO Mayo I got the recipe off of the clothes make the girl blog and I took like 5 minutes to pout in the last of the OO I didn't use EVOO - i followed her recipe to a T and it turned out beautifully. If you haven't tried this recipe give it a go and use the blender on the lowest setting - it is totally yummers!

    Dash, I have trouble keeping any amount of bacon fat around too. That wasn't a problem at all before I went primal, LOL!

    CM, is that using light olive oil?

    Candy, wouldn't macadamia oil be very expensive?

    How are you feeling? Noticing any more energy? I'm doing good. I have found that sugar is a killer on my energy at this point. But I haven't had any since I started whole30 - I'm on day 8. I cheated a little over the weekend and had a little rum/diet coke. My first deviation. I'm down 4 pounds.

    Yes using light olive oil the author of that blog reccomends the lightest Olive oil because the taste isn't so heavy so I waited to try making it until I had the light olive oil - I used Bertolli Extra light tasting olive oil. my egg and olive oil and freshly squeezed lemon juice all sat at room temp for about 4 hours before I started mixing.

    Tomi, I have been tired, but then again, I've been pretty active on insufficient sleep, so I can't complain too much. Do check those articles I referenced a page or two back. I think it's possible that I am actually slowly detoxing, which means that progress might appear slow for quite a while, until my system has had a chance to clear out the backlog. I will probably try the supplements recommended for re-activating the methylation cycle to give the whole process a boost.

    The list of symptoms of CFS and why they occur was rather scary to me. I hadn't been too concerned about my chest pains, seeing as there was no correlation with exercise. I thought they were probably related to the low-level chronic bronchitis which frequently comes with CFS. The tachycardia did scare me a bit more, although now I know it wasn't scaring me anywhere near as much as it should have. That was a big motivator for the weight loss, and one of the reasons I was looking for something more, because the weight loss hadn't eliminated it, just reduced it a bit. The tachycardia has not recurred in the two months plus I've been primal, and the chest pains have decreased so much they might just as well be gone. These are signs of important progress, and those two articles really made me realize how important they were. I didn't take the possibility of heart problems too seriously because my cholesterol had always been good. Now I know my heart was straining simply because it was underpowered. The batteries were almost flat and couldn't keep up. The strange thing is I had used the metaphor of depleted batteries to explain my condition to people, and as it turns out, I was bang on. Every single cell in my body has a badly depleted battery. Oy. At least it's getting better, but it's going to take time to rectify. And I might have to to through some unpleasant times to get there, as one of the first things my healing body is going to do is "take out the trash". It's going to be stinky.

    Sorry for going on about this, but I am keeping in mind that some people reading this thread, now or in the future, are doing so looking for hope with their own condition, so I thought it important to throw that all out.

    Another important factor has been hope. Hope energizes and counters depression. People with CFS often battle depression, but it is a result of CFS, not the cause, although it is frequently misdiagnosed. I was told I suffered from depression, not CFS, and had anti-depressants prescribed. My GP and I ignored him. It was clear to both of us he was off-target. And I did not want to plaster chemical band-aids on my condition. I wanted to get to the root of things and solve, or at least treat, the problem at a more meaningful level. I think I'm getting closer. And the hope that I am actually on the right track is in itself a partial antidote.

    Okay, yesterday's report.

    Health journal June 11, 2012

    Sleep: 7 hours. Still not quite enough. I need 8-9 to feel good.

    Weight: 155

    Food
    Vitamins: check
    Breakfast: Banana almond pancakes
    Lunch: Chicken liver with green peppers, onions, and mushrooms in sauce
    Supper: Ham, tomato/cucumber salad
    Snacks: Bite of cheese, black olives, a big strawberry or two, iced cap with milk and stevia, macadamias, a bit of primal "candy"

    Exercise: Chasing toddlers through shopping malls, around the great-grandparents' garden, all over the water park and playground, and up and down the stairs at our place. This is close to chronic cardio, LOL!

    Activities: Laundry, cooking, small chores, babysitting grandsons overnight.

    Comments: Sleeping was difficult. It was muggy and I was achy. Ended up having a midnight snack to break the cycle of wakefulness. Eating had been pretty light, so I figured I wasn't sabotaging myself too badly.
