Paleobird - when I was on my 21 day fast and drinking coffee, my digestive system was rather active the first week. This time, no coffee, and nothing has passed since Tuesday morning.
BennettC - Tri-tip is about the easiest cut to cook, but overcooking it will make it tough. It's different than a Chuck Roast in that regard. I usually get one about 3 pounds, salt and pepper it and let it come to room temperature for at least an hour. Then throw that baby on the Weber, making sure the coals are all white-ash, and give it 25-30 minutes for medium rare. MMMMMmmmmmm.

Kind of dragging today~ it's been raining (unusual) and all I want to do is curl up in a chair with a good book. Thinking about breaking today instead of tomorrow, but I think it's more boredom than a need to eat. I have noticed that I want to nibble when bored~ Tomorrow is the family birthdays dinner and I most definitely will be eating then!

I'm going another 2.5 hours. I'm feeling great, although I've suddenly developed this congestion in my throat and am clearing my throat about every 30 seconds. Weird.
Found my pemmican supply tucked in the cupboard. Made this about 6 or 8 months ago, so this will be a good test of how well the stuff keeps - it looks fine and smells great.
Nady - how was Jerome? Did you stay overnight? I've been through there 3 times, but have never stayed. Have stayed in Prescott and Oak Creek Canyon as I prefer to be closer to fishing. But I'd like to try Jerome sometime.

Strayed off eating clean for a bit and felt this might be a good way to get back on the wagon.
First time fasting and did 56 hours. Water/salt/tea/black coffee.
Feeling really good and thinking of doing one monthly now and extending the duration over time.

Awesome you guys!
I have been hungrier today than I can remember for a long time. uggghhh But I have been busier outside doing manual labor the past few days, being productive and getting stuff done And I have had all good stuff, nothing bad, just more of it. And my calories are 1976! I havent had that many calories in over 9 or 10 months! Macros are 39 net carbs, protein 134, and fat is 127. Can't believe it.

Well, never got around to making that tri tip since I spent most of the day in the doctor's office with my Dad. He's got some kind of infection in his leg. But there were lab tests to be done and prescriptions to fill and the whole thing was pretty exhausting.
So, by the time we got home it was too late to start a roast and Dad just wanted a quick bite and then to get some rest so I fixed him a bowl of leftover stew.
I think I'm going to have bone marrow for my breaking fast meal. Lots of bone marrow. A whole big cookie tray of bones.
