No more MCT oil in my coffee. It's too much and ruins the experience for me, which is why I drink the stuff in the first place.
Slept decently last night, woke around 2 for an hour or so and then slept until 6 so got 7 hours or so. I think that might be as good as it gets, but time will tell.
Should have lifted something heavy before breakfast, but lately I've spent so much time hot, sticky and sweaty that I just couldn't face it. Maybe later.
B | coffee | 2 hen eggs in b & bf | 2 bacon strips | 2 sauteed mushrooms | the rest of the V8 which was like 3-4oz
Today is going to be a hot one, so I might just stay inside and veg...or do laundry...I don't know. The idea of getting all gross though does NOT appeal.
I've been doing more paleo/primal/ancestral diet exploring on the web and boy, is it a frigging war out there or what? I mean, it seems everyone is fighting and there are a lot of dividing lines all over the place. People segregating themselves into camps and alternately following or decrying one person's method/approach. It's ridiculous. It's natural, of course, humans are contentious, vain and have easily injured pride/egos, but some of what I see just seems to be spite for the sake of it. Like early vegetarians and vegans, the paleo/primal/ae community is a fringe one, with very little mainstream acceptance and it seems foolish to divide that already tenuous alliance further. The one-size-fits-all attitude is very puzzling since many of the people I see espousing this WOE understand more about biochemistry, digestion, endocrine function and exercise than most people and they should know that not everyone functions 100% like everyone else. Still they try to force their POV and box people in saying there is only one way to do this. Stupid.
My husband and I have always been more critical than most of dogmas and doctrines; we always approach anything new we want to do in this way and we inevitably adopt some things and ignore others. This WOE is no exception. We looked at the PB first and found it reasonable, functional and adaptable. We looked at some other systems that are more stringent (read less fun and functional) and have used some of what they proscribe as reinforcing agents for ideas and processes we're already doing or trying to do. Take so called safe starches as an example. After reading TPB we decided that once I get to a weight I'm comfortable with, we'd experiment with adding risotto and white potatoes back into our meals. Our opinion is that those foods are the least carb-heavy and nutrient poor, and that eaten in lower quantities than we did before shouldn't put us over the top in terms of carb load. Plus they're not overly processed, crammed with sugar or laden with toxic chems. Our choice though and no one is going to arrest us if we add them or continue to ignore them. Maybe we'll be excommunicated from Primal, but I don't really care. We're going to do what works for us within the framework of a non-processed sugar and flour perspective. Why other people can't or won't think like this is maddening and I think makes the "community" as whole suffer.
Anyway...end of rant. Happy Friday, peeps.
