Draglist's Journal, 14 May 16

Woke at 209.4, down 6.4 from yesterday as I successfully pushed out the water weight with a 500 calorie fast day. Fasted until 2 pm and before that, went outside on a beautiful day and walked six miles. Got a 206.0 weigh in upon my return -- and back to the magic blue line! Listened to YouTube while I walked and learned more and more about insulin resistance. Going to be trying to go even lower carb as I go forward. UPDATE: Went over on calories with a superfood mix of Greek yogurt, flax, spirulina, and green superfood (with a tablespoon of Hershey’s unsweetened cocoa and a bit of liquid Stevia). Look up Superfoods with Dr. Mike on YouTube for some good info. He’s another great resource for lots of things.

Hi, Carmen! My fasting has messed up my food storage. I had some chicken and green beans about to go bad so I ate them up today! Added some other 'superfoods' like spirulina, flax, black cumin, and chia. Went a bit over on calories, but will adjust tomorrow. Hope you had a great day, too!

I am a coffee lady and I am not used to super foods (lol). We will see tomorrow. The 5 days of the week, when I can have 1480, I stop to 1000. I cant eat more. Is this O.K? Thank you very much

I would ensure that you are getting the macros you need. Good fats, some protein, little carbs. If you are getting the fats and protein you need, you should be fine! Cheese and nuts are your friends! :)

Thank you Bill, thank you very much. I like very much cheese but I dont know what nuts may I have, I dont know wht americans include in nuts, thank you very much.

Amen Bill! If not for cheese and nuts, I would fall way short on my calories daily! They are great for the days you don't have a big appetite but need small foods with big numbers!

Macadamia nuts are excellent, tasty, very low on carbs, very high on fat, brazil nuts, walnut, pecans....when you get into cashews, almonds and peanuts you are moving into higher carb territory so you gotta weigh those and be careful with them. Sunflower seed kernels are also high in fat and I love them on my salads. I like all of them raw, or roasted with sea salt, or freeze dried. I love peanuts boiled, they have the texture of a bean when boiled. Lots of tasty ways to eat nuts :)

Debra has the latest science on this! Totally agree on all. What sucks is that I avoided nuts due to their high calories for quite a while, but now I realize how good they are for me.

Debra thank you very much. Read again my journal I have a very nice video of Shaun T for biceps, triceps and shoulders, maybe you like it. Sunflower seeds I dont like, but I like almonds, peanuts and walnuts, thank you very much.

Cheese has carbs too.

Some... but way more fat and protein!

Thank you very much Bill. Wonderful night for me (lol) You are still in the afternoon, eevening. :-)

It's 9:42 pm right now. Enjoying the evening and watching Dr. Mike on Youtube (Chromecast to my TV). Now talking about bad foods and the resulting disease. 
14 May 16 by member: Draglist
Disease, not a nice wordbut then you will be well informed and so we will learn it from you. Thank you very much Bill. I watch Shaun T workout to see if I can do it. I f you have seen the movie "Arthur", Dudley Moore has a granny who paid a personal trainer ripped, 12 packs abs etc, just to watch him training himself. I am this granny now (lol) 
14 May 16 by member: carmen1098
I will look up Shaun. The workout is my next step. Did it a lot two years ago but got busy and stopped. But the treadmill and walking -- even HIIT -- is not enough. 
14 May 16 by member: Draglist
Yes, that is the reason I started these videos. I cant stand still. As long as I have this "desease" I want to make the most of it (lol)

14 May 16 by member: carmen1098
LOL MY head,is still spinning with all those numbers-But as usual you put everything together perfectly!!! :). I think I finally have found an old system that works for me, I just have to stick with it. It's called stick within calorie range and get your exercise in.- Easy formula but always not so easy for me!-;), Enjoy your Sunday!!! :)
