JERF - Just Eat Real Food!

NO MORE EXCUSES!

Back on Spark. Focusing on personal development and continuing my education. Not everyone here is going to agree with me and that's okay. It's not up to me change people's minds. All I can do is tell my truth and hope to help someone along the way. Hopefully my results will speak for themselves.

Just Eat Real Food (thanks for that btw Sean Croxton).

I am a Certified Personal Trainer.

I eat vegetables, meats, fats, some fruit and dark chocolate. Unprocessed and preservative free. And it's changed my life!

I think my diet can best be described as a High Fat/ Moderate Protein/ Lower Carb diet with a Primal/Paleo/Atkins influence. I get 90% my carbohydrates from vegetables and fruits so that in itself makes me low carb compared to the SAD. I can be anywhere from 50-150g of carbs a day depending on what I feel like eating that day and what's in season.

I have had great success in the past year shifting my focus onto quality not quantity in both my food and exercise.

Blood sugar regulation is really important to me as diabetes runs in my family. I try to keep my blood sugar levels as low as possible.

I love to cook! I typically eat foods that start with these ingredients.

Carrots
Green Beans
Broccoli
Red Pepper
Spinach
Onions
Garlic
Parsnip
Beets
Radish
Romaine
Avocado
Sweet Potatoes
Russet Potatoes
Squash
Ginger
Jalapeño Peppers
Asparagus


Granny Smith or Gala Apples
Raspberries
Strawberries
Blueberries
Bananas (during race season)
Mango (during race season)
Pineapple (during race season)

Eggs - pastured when possible
Raw Whipping Cream - pastured

Butter
Coconut Oil
Olive Oil
Red Palm Oil
Bacon Fat

I buy meats at local farms. Pastured, drug and hormone free.

Chicken Breasts
Roasting Chickens
Chicken Legs and Thighs
Ground Beef
Ground Pork
Bacon
Beef Pepperoni

Almond Flour
Brown Rice Flour
Arrowroot Flour
Ground Flaxseeds
Ground Chia Seeds
Cocoa

80% Cocoa Dark Chocolate
Spices

Personal Information:
Food produces hormonal effects in the body. Some hormones say 'store that fat'; others say 'release sugar'; others say 'build muscle.' Study after study shows that diets based on the same amount of calories, but different proportions of fat, protein and carbohydrates, result in different amounts of weight loss.

- Dr. Jonny Bowden



Other Information:
Perfection is not attainable, but if we chase perfection we can catch excellence.

- Vince Lombardi


The greater danger for most of us lies not in setting our aim too high and falling short; but in setting our aim too low, and achieving our mark.

- Michelangelo


"How many of us stop short of success on purpose? How many of us sabotage our own happiness because failure, while miserable, is a fear we're familiar with? Success, however, dreams come true, are a whole new kind of terrifying, an entire new species of responsibilities and disillusions, requiring a new way to think, act and become. Why do we REALLY quit? Because it's hopeless? Or because it's possible...”

Just popped over here to say that I appreciated your comments on the Spark article about "healthy" diabetic eating! I'm not diabetic, but I'm sure I was headed that way after a lifetime of consuming unlimited amounts of sugar day after day after day, until I went cold turkey and gave up my sugar/carb addiction a month ago.

Thanks for the information on the modifications to your new fatbike. There are no hubs better than Chris King. However, I opted for the Hope hubs, which work quite well, but are less expensive than the King hubs.

I may add a third ring to my Race Face 2x10 Turbine Crank. Right now I have a bash guard. My bike is really fast enough already. My crank is a 38/22T, which gives me plenty of range. My cassette is 11x36T. So I have some really digger gears on my 9:Zero:7.

Thanks, Bruce
