Second 90-days, End of Month 1

The first month of the second 90-day challenge is never as exciting as the first month when you're just started.  Regardless, I've hit that mark and there are some thing I want to share.  Here's what I have learned: -DHEA does elevate my blood pressure (see What a Difference a Day Makes).  I won't say my … Continue reading Second 90-days, End of Month 1

Sugar Experiment #1

I separated the two components of my weekend nutritional problems to see if I could better understand what is going on. I went to the same restaurant and had the same margarita martini, guacamole, and taco bowls (I ate them this time, as I was hungry), but did not have the chips (full disclosure, I … Continue reading Sugar Experiment #1

My body does not like a large influx of carbs/sugar. I been noticing this for a while now. It started right after my initial fast when I drank some beer and had awful fast food cravings.

One Month Update!

It has now been one month since I started my initial fast. I have reintroduced many foods and have had two sets of post-fast blood work, one after ten days and the other after 24 days (right before writing this). My eating patterns have been based on intermittent fasting, beginning with time restricted eating over ~8 … Continue reading One Month Update!

What To Eat When… Part 2

For the first part of this blog, please see What To Eat When… Part 1. Now, let’s consider that I am not really hungry, but I am in a social situation that warrants eating or drinking, such as happy hour, parties, or social dinners.

What To Eat When… Part 1

I like food, and while this might not be the emotional attachment that I desire, it’s my current reality. I have plans to change this, which I will share as my life is altered (stay tuned), but in the process of that shift, I think it’s important to know what to do food-wise in different … Continue reading What To Eat When… Part 1
