This began last Thursday, it seems a little longer than that, like this is how I have always been, just enclosed in a shroud of influence; influence from advertisers, big Agra, big Pharma, and other Government lobbyist. So far the test strips have been showing my ketones level at the center of the scale, which from what I hear is a comfortable place to be, and is why there has been no flu-like symptoms to report for myself or my partner Aynsley, who is also working on this new lifestyle with me.
Yesterday saw advancement as well, as we both picked up a pair of Vibram Five Fingers shoes. These or something like them are recommended (pitched) by Mark Sisson as Primal because it is like running barefoot. Although for me they were a little tight at the end of a day of playing in them, I think they will stretch, and if not, they have a no questions exchange policy at the store in town.
After adding two full eggs and letting her buck for a bit, the result was a perfectly spreadable and 100% primal crust for the chops. I mean it went on like a dream. The lower side fell off and slipped through the baking rack, but the top and sides received this wonderful browned and crumbly crust. At the commercial kitchen supply store in town we picked up some school lunch trays, to make things less messy because we just don't like tables, so I filled the remaining compartments with roasted Brussels sprouts and onions with bacon, half a tomato, and some cucumber slices in olive oil and dill.
After Dinner Aynsley and I went out for a walk with the dog, and did a little gymnastics at the park. Earlier in the day I returned some videos by bike, and did some excersize band work. It was an active day, with very few carbs, and I expected to see results on the scale. Not much changed, so I suppose some muscle may have been built and some fat burned.
Speaking of that, in a short while I will be picked up to go hike at Whitewater State Park on a fasted stomach. Yeah! And that was a sincere Yeah! because it will burn all fat. There are no carbs to burn, so let's go!
