    I see it as a practical consideration to see if what we are doing has the desired effect. Even if it does and does so consistently, there is really no way that any of us could say it was due to leptin reset as opposed to eating mostly fatty meat or a carb day every week vs other frequencies. It's not something we are in any position to test rigorously. Isn't it true that there's really no way to test for leptin issues?

    I think instead of a full blown refeed I'm just going to go with an alternate protein day with some veggies and see how it goes...fruit and dark chocolate aren't going anywhere and will be there to reintroduce in moderation when I reach my goals...there doesn't seem to be much of an updside to a refeed and since I have only a little to lose, the water gain will demoralize me and is not really worth it.

    This is how I feel about wine, cheese, and bacon.

    Very true and I am not aware of any leptin issue tests, just anecdotal evidence from others sharing their experience. For me its all about peak performance and how I feel in my training. If I go for an extended period on a VLC diet of more than 6 days I have diminishing returns, progression stops and eventually muscle loss. Of course this is all a personal experience and not necessarily true for anyone else and may not even be important for those just trying to lose weight and not necessarily concerned about fitness performance.

    So I made a big chuck roast in the oven. It turned out...okay, I gave it too much heat trying to brown it though.

    So I decided to make a mayo for on top.

    After breaking my emulsification 3 times, and wasting a few more precious yolks, I finally made an olive oil mayo that tastes like heaven. It reminds me more of a hollandaise because of all the yolk, but it tastes damn amazing.

    Now if I can keep this stocked, I might be able to wean my family members off of storebought mayo and those bad oils.

    I changed my mind about ditching the refeed. Not that I really want or need the refeed, I just think the mental break is good for me. And I ended up 2 lbs lighter on the scale this morning (so I relost everything I gained last week plus one more lb, so as of now I have lost 4 lbs in 2 weeks) which isn't monumental but it's most likely 4 lbs that I wouldn't have lost otherwise. If nothing else this is a great plateau-buster. So....today is banana smoothie and chocolate covered strawberries day, and I'm looking forward to that!

    Oh my god. These strawberries. I feel like Humphrey Bogart in The Caine Mutiny. I'm now obsessed. They're so sweet and juicy. Each one is dipped in all primal ingredients and each is the size of my palm. This is breakfast.

    The local supermarket has a sale on strawberries this week, Two one-pound boxes for $2.50. I may have to buy 2 boxes and eat them both on Sunday.
