Shaking it up

Monday, July 15, 2013

OK. After waffling about for a while, I am going to do a combination Carb Cycling and Simple Before Six. I will start by Carb Cycling while I plot out my low carb vegan options. Doing this with limited soy will be interesting.

As I am sallying forth on my own hybrid path, I might allow myself hard boiled eggs as a snack. I know how the chickens were treated since they live in my backyard. emoticon

I will be posting my recipes as they come together. It cannot go worse than I am doing right now.

Diet choices

Tuesday, June 18, 2013

When I say diet, I mean the food I eat not a restrictive food regime. I am looking for something I can live with.

I am torn between carb cycling and "simple before six" It it really hard to both (low carb vegan is tricky). I am trying to figure out something that works for me. Simple before six is attractive because I don't inconvenience my family if I am doing vegan until dinner. But I have chickens so it makes no sense to not eat eggs during the day. I will sort something out.

5k for Cancer Education

Saturday, September 29, 2012

Finished the Hoosiers Outrun Cancer 5k. Got passed by two girls in walking casts and a fireman in his full kit (helmet, oxygen tank, etc), but I finished in less than an hour. Apparently I should have done some training. Well maybe I will be better prepared next time.

I have lost 10.6 lbs in 5 weeks, now it looks like I am stuck. The scale hasn't budged all week. ARGH!

I guess I need to really push the salad. That seems to keep the scale on its downward plunge.

    I agree that mixing things up helps the body burn calories more efficiently. Hang in there!

    I hit a plateau recently. I adjusted my workouts to surprise my body, like short sprints, some push ups, and an extra long walk/jog at least once a week, and the scale eventually moved in the right direction.

HFCS is not equivalent to sucrose calories being equal

Friday, July 13, 2012

Princeton researchers find that high-fructose corn syrup prompts considerably more weight gain. Who is not surprised that the commercials financed by the corn refiners might not contain unbiased research?

The article is attached below.

    Sad because I know so many Pepsi drinkers. Wish they would redo the drink.
