For a good laugh!!!

Hi all!!!

If you have not watch this video available on YouTube and you want to have a good laugh, it is a must.

"FREAKY EATERS / MEAT ADDICT (FULL EPISODE) / ONLY HUMAN"

Link:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l0AQ2Ceh2C0

When I realised the only result of all the medical test they could show us HAD NOTHING TO DO with eating meat, I got really mad.

The "anti-gliadin sigA" (a FECAL immunology test) result shown is for detecting celiac disease / gluten intolerance. It is in no way related to risk of cardiac disease.

They probably couldn't show the lipid profile because I am sure it was 100% NORMAL... 

This guy looks healthy like an horse and is certainly not overweight!!!

I will not make further comments...

8/11/2017 - Held for Ransom.......

Greetings all,

I feel good if not Great! No cravings for carbs and my Spirits are Soaring!!!

OK, so I noticed last month that all if not most of my pics are gone. Jeez, WTF, or Wheres the Fruit!!!! 

Yes, in all it's wisdom Photobucket decided to start charging for hosting pics. OK, so after years and years of providing a free service they decided to charge??? 

What a scam. Like me, thousands of users of this formerly free service are stuck like chuck. They well know it would be oh so hard for me and others to go back and reinsert hundreds if not thousands of photos in various pages on someones blog or website. 

I am sure as to Hell, oops sorry for the language but I am mad, am not going to pay any ransom for my pictures to be hosted there. I will have to find an alternative. It will take a long, long time for me to go all the way back to page one of my blog and reinsert all the pics. I may not even know exactly what was there. 

What a fine mess INDEED!!!

Well, I know that at the start of this post I said I was fine, but I did have an accident last month that I am almost fully recovered. I was changing the U-Joints on one of my vehicles and smashed my thumb with a 4 lb sledge hammer by accident. It could have been much worse, but by the Grace of God I did minimal, yet painful damage. It still hurts, but the pain is almost gone.

OK: so now I am the hunt for a Photobucket alternative, one day this blog will back to as close to 100% as possible. I don't post much now a days, but it is the only full Journal still available from the former original Zeroing In On Health Forum. So, I will make an effort to do what I can to give back to those who inspired me so much when I started to change my Lifestyle to Zero Carb.

Have a wonderful day! Fight the Good Fight and Always Battle On!!

(ZC)er No Surrender, No Retreat

Cheers,

5/12/2017 - Keep this Frequency CLEAR

Greetings my Zero Carb Family and Friends,

I gotta tell ya that I am in Rib eye Heaven!!! Yes, I am. Hmmm... let me see, yes I am humming a little song or jingle of some sorts:

Rib eyes in the morning,

Rib eyes in the evening,

Rib eyes at supper time,

Be my little Rib eye.

And I'll love you all the time.

OK, I made some oh so necessary adjustments to the song. 

Dave has went off the deep end! 

Deep end indeed!!! I told ya that I  bought a nice stash of Rib eyes for $2.97 lb and I have to say they are some of the best Rib eyes I have ever tasted. They have outstanding marbling. I mean I just pan fried one last night and my (DW) took it away from me and ate half as I stood by drooling. Jeez........  She said she felt bad taking my food away, but at the end of the day she enjoyed it and I got some too. It's all good here. 

Yes, and now for my next Wacky Experiment............not!!! Yes, I will be enjoying my stash of Rib eyes for a little while. My next hunt will be to find some decent Beef Ribs. Or should I say the Elusive Beef Ribs..........wow that sound like that dude on The Deadlist Catch........."The Elusive King Crab"......... and so on. 

Hmm.........King Crab.........yes with tons of melted butttahhh. Shoot I'll be happy with some good ole Snow Crab. Wow, now I have it: Surf and Turf. Rib eyes and Snow Crab smothered in Butttahh. 

Does anyone know of some Crab on sale??? Any kind will do!

First Rib eyes, then Beef Ribs and now Crab. I think my head is spinning. 

Now what to eat tomorrow? I have some pan Sausage in the freezer that needs eating. I need to get some Bacon. I love to cook Bacon and then fry my eggs in the grease. Yum!!! OK: Sausage Omelet with Bacon on the side. Yes, that will fill the bill for my first meal of the day. 

Sorry for the gibberish, but what the hey! 

So what's up for the weekend? Tomorrow I have an obligation. I was thinking of going to Rudy's BBQ to Meat up with some fellow (ZC)ers, but I can't get out of the obligation. Hey there will always be another time.

Sunday my siblings want to take my Mom out to an Italian restaurant. OK, a (ZC)er in an Italian restaurant. Hooray....not!!! Since (ZC) I avoid those eating establishments like the plague. Some might say: "they have grilled chicken breast" or "they have grill Pork Chops"........ well I am not a big fan of Chicken Breast. If I have them on rare occasions I make Chicken Salad out of them. I like Pork Chops, but I rather eat them elsewhere. 

OK y'all just stretching the ole fingers here. Just chilling from the last experiment and enjoying LIFE.

Have a wonderful day and weekend! Keep the Faith and Always Battle On!!!

(ZC)er And the Beat Goes ON

Cheers,

Dave

5/10/2017 - ZC / 5BD / Egg Fast Challenge Day 15

Greetings all,

This is it!! The wait is over! Drum Roll PLEAS!!!!


(Please let me know if I mess up on my math below, I might add or subtract incorrectly)

DAY 1   = (0.0) = 00.0 lbs,loss, current weight: 175.0 lbs (out the gate)
DAY 2   = (2.0) = 02.0 lbs, loss, current weight: 173.0 lbs (talk to me)
DAY 3   = (1.0) = 03.0 lbs loss, current weight: 172.0 lbs (keep it coming)
DAY 4   = (0.5) = 03.5 lbs loss, current weight: 171.5 lbs (oh my)
DAY 5   = (0.5) = 04.0 lbs loss, current weight: 171.0 lbs (yeah baby)
DAY 6   = (1.0) = 05.0 lbs loss, current weight: 170.0 lbs (this is how we do it)
DAY 7   = (3.0) = 08.0 lbs loss, current weight: 167.0 lbs (not so fast)
DAY 8   = (0.5) = 08.5 lbs loss, current weight: 166.5 lbs (not bad)
DAY 9   = (0.0) = 08.5 lbs loss, current weight: 166.5 lbs (THE WALL)
DAY 10 = (0.5) = 09.0 lbs loss, current weight: 166.0 lbs (push forward)
DAY 11 = (0.5) = 09.5 lbs loss, current weight: 165.5 lbs (record low)
DAY 12 = (1.0) = 10.5 lbs loss, current weight: 164.5 lbs (record low 2)
DAY 13 = (1.0) = 11.5 lbs loss. current weight: 163.5 lbs (record low 3)
DAY 14 = (0.5) = 12.0 lbs loss, current weight: 163.0 lbs (record low 4)
DAY 15 = (0.5) = 12.5 lbs loss, current weight: 162.5 lbs (record low 5 ta da!!)

AND THIS WACKY EXPERIMENT IS IN THE HISTORY BOOKS!!! 

Yes, it was an Experiment Folks, no more, no less. OK, I am not going to go there.

How do you feel Dave??? I feel rather good if not GREAT!!!! Considering the circumstances of having an injured foot, being on medication and some unfortunate undo stress. All came out fine.

What will you do next Dave? Hmm........... lets see what mischief I can get myself into next. Just joking or am I?

Well, yesterday I went shopping and bought two large packages of Rib eye steaks @ $2.97 lb. Each steak weight a little over a pound each. YUUUUMMMM!!!!!!

Jeez what to do with those steaks............I just don't know. Right?

I Tell You What: After all those eggs I am ready for a little change. I have plenty of Oak Lump Coal begging to be FIRED UP! Along with a nice variety of wood chips that would be rather angry if they did not get some action too. Hahaha!!!

It actually felt good if not Great posting daily. It felt like old times in a sense. I gotta tell ya that starting my original ZIOH Journal was very Exciting, Challenging and a bit Scary at the very beginning.

I was a NOOB aka NEWBIE. I had to be careful what I said for the most part until I got some experience. I totally agree with that, because you don't want someone giving advice to others when they have don't fully understand what's going on.

Yet, the easiest thing for me to do was to try to follow the Purest Path. I did for the most part, but as time went on I start to experiment with other accepted Zero Carb foods and some that were a little more controversial. I know that Coffee has been frowned upon as well as Dairy. Although Dairy is more widely accepted to me and most other Zero Carb sites or groups. Ah, but we are not following the Core: Dink Water when thirsty and Eat Meat when Hungry. Yes, we walk GREY or GRAY LINES. 

That's OK.........or is it???

I often ask myself "could I become a true PUREST??? Yes I do like talking to myself don't ya know lol? 

I think I could be a Purest, but could I really do it Life Long. I really don't know. There is a large variety of meats out there that are oh so yummy. But still, no eggs........OK eggs are not a big deal at the moment (I wonder why), but I do enjoy some easy over eggs running all over some pan sausage, bacon or my FAVORITE Barbacoa! YUM to the 10th degree!!!

In the past I would tell myself: "food is just fuel, food is just fuel, food is just fuel" and so on. Jeez why does it have to taste so freaking good if not Great? Darn taste buds!

So, where do I go now? Back to eating doughnuts, Twinkies or putting Dunking Doughnuts out of business............yes it's a JOKE! 

Lighting up a little! I love humor folks, yes I do. My humor is my humor..........love it, hate it.............it really does not matter.

Look-It: Most bullies are just COWARDS when they are out of their element.  Don't ever let Someone Shut - You - Down! 

Stand up for yourself! Be Strong, Be Confident and most of all:
 BE BRAVE!

Brave- Sara Bareilles


That's it for now my family and friends. It's been fun and challenging all at the same time. Keep the Faith and Always Battle On!!!

(ZC)er RISE

Dave

5/9/2017 - ZC / 5BD / Egg Fast Challenge Day 14

Howdy all,

We are down the stretch and the results continuing to mount up:

(Please let me know if I mess up on my math below, I might add or subtract incorrectly)

DAY 1   = (0.0) = 00.0 lbs,loss, current weight: 175.0 lbs (out the gate)
DAY 2   = (2.0) = 02.0 lbs, loss, current weight: 173.0 lbs (talk to me)
DAY 3   = (1.0) = 03.0 lbs loss, current weight: 172.0 lbs (keep it coming)
DAY 4   = (0.5) = 03.5 lbs loss, current weight: 171.5 lbs (oh my)
DAY 5   = (0.5) = 04.0 lbs loss, current weight: 171.0 lbs (yeah baby)
DAY 6   = (1.0) = 05.0 lbs loss, current weight: 170.0 lbs (this is how we do it)
DAY 7   = (3.0) = 08.0 lbs loss, current weight: 167.0 lbs (not so fast)
DAY 8   = (0.5) = 08.5 lbs loss, current weight: 166.5 lbs (not bad)
DAY 9   = (0.0) = 08.5 lbs loss, current weight: 166.5 lbs (THE WALL)
DAY 10 = (0.5) = 09.0 lbs loss, current weight: 166.0 lbs (push forward)
DAY 11 = (0.5) = 09.5 lbs loss, current weight: 165.5 lbs (record low)
DAY 12 = (1.0) = 10.5 lbs loss, current weight: 164.5 lbs (record low 2)
DAY 13 = (1.0) = 11.5 lbs loss. current weight: 163.5 lbs (record low 3)
DAY 14 = (0.5) = 12.0 lbs loss, current weight: 163.0 lbs (record low 4)

So there you go folks. One more day to go!!! Hmm.........yes I was thinking of something clever to say, then it slipped my mind. Go figure???

Ya gotta have a little humor my family and friends. So many folks out there are so bitter and dry. I choose to be understanding, friendly and helpful as much as I can. It really becomes second nature to me. 

I have mentioned before that in my distant past that I had been in situations that an action novel could have be written. I'm talking about some really tense situations where a wrong decision could have meant the loss of life or limb. No joke. That is why when I say to people who are attacking me: "if you really knew me, you would not speak to me that way". Unfortunately some folks mistake kindness for weakness.

Those days are oh so in the past and I thank the Lord everyday that I am safe and my former team is safe and although we got banged up pretty bad sometimes, we made it through some precarious situations in one piece. That life is so far removed it seems like another lifetime. Yes, I have been reincarnated into a (ZC)er!!!

These days I choose to be supportive, positive and good natured. I really enjoying helping others no matter the situation. When you get help from me, you get the best that I can offer, no-holds-barred!!! That is who I am and will always be for the rest of my LIFE!!!!!

Amen Brother Dave!!! Yet another "soap box" moment don't ya know? Hahaha!!!

That brings a song to mind:

I'll be there for you by The Rembrandts


Love the song, not the show "Friends". Never watched a single episode. It was not my cup of tea. Yes, Tea is OK on a (ZC) Lifestyle as long as it is plain. Unless, that is, if you are a purest. 

One day left on this Challenge!!! Lets see what tomorrow brings!

Have a great day my family and friends. Keep On, Keeping On and Always Battle On!!!

(ZC)er Just Reach OUT

Cheers,

Dave

Greetings all,

Another record low for me! My spirits and energy are in FLIGHT and my foot pain is gone!!!

How do you like them apples.......oops I mean Pork Skins? Hahaha!!!! Yes, a laugh of a madman one might say Half man Half Egg.

I can almost tap dance........hmm......not a bad idea!!! No really the foot pain is gone. Now if I find the spot and push down really, really hard, then it does not take a rocket scientist to figure that one out.......or does it???

Look-It: This 30 Day Challenge now actually 15 Day Challenge is not a cake walk........oops x2 I mean a can of peaches.......oops x3......... I mean a drumstick, yes safe with that one!!! It is not for the weak of heart I gotta tellya. Yet, it was challenging for me and that's OK. Some folks like to push it, some don't and at the end of the day it really does not matter. 

We all have to do things at our own pace, but I like to kick things around and stir up the juices........ OK, pause not required on that one. 

So there you go! I am oh so happy with the results thus far and have two (2) more days to go!!!

Have a great day my zero carb family and friends. Fight the Good Fight and Always Battle On!!!

(ZC)er At Your SIDE

Cheers,

Dave

5/7/2017 - ZC / 5BD / Egg Fast Challenge Day 12

Greetings family and friends,

Yet another record low for me! My spirits and energy are soaring and my foot pain is almost gone!!!


(Please let me know if I mess up on my math below, I might add or subtract incorrectly)

DAY 1   = (0.0) = 00.0 lbs,loss, current weight: 175.0 lbs (out the gate)
DAY 2   = (2.0) = 02.0 lbs, loss, current weight: 173.0 lbs (talk to me)

DAY 12 = (1.0) = 10.5 lbs loss, current weight: 164.5 lbs (record low 2)

Sorry for the late post today. I have been posting responses to the comments. I wanted to give quality answers to the comments with meaningful answers. I appreciate the support that I have received on the blog as well as through my email concerning the incident. 

OK, I really want to move on from the past. As my dear departed Dad used to say "Leave the past in the past". I truly believe in that statement as long as we remember any mistakes in the past so we do not repeat them if possible. 

One good lesson to learn is that living the purest tract of Zero Carb is really the best of all worlds. We can get bored with the meat and water routine and start going after other Animal Kingdom Zero Carb foods, but it is not the CORE of Zero Carb.

Worst, it is easy to start making "Frankenfoods", that simulate old carb favorites. For some this can lead you down the path of NO RETURN.

Alright then: So it looks like the Challenge is going its path. I am just along for the ride. I have a Big Announcement.

BIG ANNOUNCEMENT(haha): I am going to cut this 30 Day Challenge to 15 Days........WHY???

WHY: Well to tell the truth I started this Challenge thinking I was ten pounds heavier than I was because of the scale. I am actually content with the weight loss so far, but I will continue for DAY 15 then stop. I would say I am sorry, but why? I am happy with the results thus far and there you go!!!

So three (3) more days to see the results and back to a normal Zero Carb Lifestyle. Yes, I will be drowning in Rib eyes hahaha!!! Actually tomorrow I will buy several packages of of Bone-in Rib-eyes. I found them on sale for an incredible $2.97 a pound!!! I did not see a limit so I will see how many I can buy.

I know I said to leave the past in the past, but after some thought....yes I can think.......I really want to let bygones be bygones. I hold no ILL WILL to anyone over there..... I mean anyone. Yes, I even mean the "ill mouthed" noobs and any of the vets. I will pray for them and I hope they will pray for me. That is who I am. Now and Forever.

Do I hear a song? Yes I did:

Ain't No Stopping Us Now

Those lyrics are so true in many ways!!!!

My Zero Carb Sisters, Brothers and Friends: enjoy the rest of your day, afternoon, night or morning. Where every you are in the word I bid you well.

Keep the Faith and Always Battle On!!!

(ZC)er TRUE
Cheers,

Dave

5/6/2017 - ZC / 5BD / Egg Fast Challenge Day 11

Greetings family and friends,

Today marks an all time new record low! 

 Results thus far:

(Please let me know if I mess up on my math below, I might add or subtract incorrectly)

DAY 1   = (0.0) = 00.0 lbs,loss, current weight: 175.0 lbs (out the gate)
DAY 2   = (2.0) = 02.0 lbs, loss, current weight: 173.0 lbs (talk to me)
DAY 3   = (1.0) = 03.0 lbs loss, current weight: 172.0 lbs (keep it coming)
DAY 4   = (0.5) = 03.5 lbs loss, current weight: 171.5 lbs (oh my)
DAY 5   = (0.5) = 04.0 lbs loss, current weight: 171.0 lbs (yeah baby)
DAY 6   = (1.0) = 05.0 lbs loss, current weight: 170.0 lbs (this is how we do it)
DAY 7   = (3.0) = 08.0 lbs loss, current weight: 167.0 lbs (not so fast)
DAY 8   = (0.5) = 08.5 lbs loss, current weight: 166.5 lbs (not bad)
DAY 9   = (0.0) = 08.5 lbs loss, current weight: 166.5 lbs (THE WALL)
DAY 10 = (0.5) = 09.0 lbs loss, current weight: 166.0 lbs (push forward)
DAY 11 = (0.5) = 09.5 lbs loss, current weight: 165.5 lbs (record low)

OK, l had rather disturbing experience yesterday from someone I used to respect. I won't go into any details on who or where. It is sad to me that this person thought it was "OK" to challenge my thoughts and beliefs when it comes my my chosen Zero Carb Lifestyle path. 

I share what I do here for those to see. I do not instruct any to do as I do. I do not pretend to be a "GURU" on the subject, because Zero Carb is elementary. Anything beyond the "core principles" are purely speculative. We all have freedom of choice. 

Furthermore, I do not gang up on an individual to tear them down with others because of their Zero Carb beliefs. I have more respect for myself than that. A better approach would to be to talk to them in private and discuss any issues that they were concerned about to get the others point of view.

There is one absolute truth in that there is not a single person on this entire planet that is an expert when it comes to Zero Carb or anything to do with the human body. Even highly educated Doctors and Scientist are at odds with each other concerning the human body let alone the Zero Carb Lifestyle. 

So while it is nice to share your thoughts and opinions with each other on this topic, it is rather absurd to make bold blanket negative judgments on others chosen path with the Zero Carb Lifestyle. Enough said on that rather unfortunate and unnecessary experience. 

So my friends and family I am at an all time low as to best of my knowledge. I am feeling Great, my Spirits and Energy levels are high and that little empty feeling is totally gone. My foot is healing really good. The pain is almost completely gone.

Lets see what tomorrow brings: up the scale, down the scale, it really does not matter. 

Have a great day my family and friends. We win battles everyday, yet the war still rages on. Fight the Good Fight and Always Battle On!!!

(ZC)er No FEAR

5/5/2017 - ZC / 5BD / Egg Fast Challenge Day 10

Greetings all,

I'm pushing through week two (2) of the 30 DAY Challenge and I am in good if not GREAT Spirits. I still need to work in the energy department, but it is steady enough.

 Results thus far:

(Please let me know if I mess up on my math below, I might add or subtract incorrectly)

DAY 1   = (0.0) = 00.0 lbs,loss, current weight: 175.0 lbs (out the gate)
DAY 2   = (2.0) = 02.0 lbs, loss, current weight: 173.0 lbs (talk to me)
DAY 3   = (1.0) = 03.0 lbs loss, current weight: 172.0 lbs (keep it coming)
DAY 4   = (0.5) = 03.5 lbs loss, current weight: 171.5 lbs (oh my)
DAY 5   = (0.5) = 04.0 lbs loss, current weight: 171.0 lbs (yeah baby)
DAY 6   = (1.0) = 05.0 lbs loss, current weight: 170.0 lbs (this is how we do it)
DAY 7   = (3.0) = 08.0 lbs loss, current weight: 167.0 lbs (not so fast)
DAY 8   = (0.5) = 08.5 lbs loss, current weight: 166.5 lbs (not bad)
DAY 9   = (0.0) = 08.5 lbs loss, current weight: 166.5 lbs (THE WALL)
DAY 10 = (0.5) = 09.0 lbs loss, current weight: 166.0 lbs (push forward)

OK, I I squeezed by the ole scale today. It was close enough that I almost did not put a loss today. As I posted a few days ago, I switched to a needle type scale because my old digital scale went out of control with tons of false readings all over the place. So, that being said its a little hard to read the tiny lines between the numbers. I did feel comfortable with the loss. I will not report this time around losses such as: .1, .2, .3 and so on. It will be .5 or in the  lbs. That's it. Because it is just easier for me.

The little empty spot feeling is still there, yet it seems to be shrinking away. My foot is still getting better each day. I hope to shed the medical boot within a week or so.

I have to tell you my good folks this whole deal has been really invigorating. Not only the challenge, doing it will I am injured. I am not trying to pat myself on the back or anything, but it would have been oh so easy to just put it off.

So, why did Dave bring up this point? No, not the tip of his head! 

Well, first I appreciate the question being brought up thank you very much to the anonymous person, although I could debate you on the second part of that statement.Pointy indeed!! HA!

Look-It: Folks, all good if not Great things come with a little sacrifice. Believe me I know that change is not easy to do all the time. Sometimes I take it for granted that this Lifestyle change has come relatively easy for me. Yes, I had some small struggles and discomforts at the beginning. Yet, I wrapped my oh so little brain around it and grasped the concept and took a LEAP of FAITH and ran with it. The results speak for themselves.

The moral of the story? If there is one, it would be that for most of us.........we really have to want that change so bad that we are will to do what it takes to get it done. 

Yes my good my family and friends it's time to get out of the Diaper Division and put on that Suit of Armor and Fight the Good Fight for your LIFE, HEALTH and most of all HAPPINESS AND WELL BEING.

This brings a song to mind: When you get off TRACK it's time to back RIGHT ON TRACK:
The Breakfast Club "Right on Track"

All right then: Off the soap box Dave. That's it for now, have great day and weekend my family and friends. Fight the Good Fight and Always Battle On!!!

(ZC)er Right on TRACK

Cheers,

Dave

DAY 4 = (0.5) = 03.5 lbs loss, current weight: 171.5 lbs (oh my)
DAY 5 = (0.5) = 04.0 lbs loss, current weight: 171.0 lbs (yeah baby)
DAY 6 = (1.0) = 05.0 lbs loss, current weight: 170.0 lbs (this is how we do it)
DAY 7 = (3.0) = 08.0 lbs loss, current weight: 167.0 lbs (not so fast)
DAY 8 = (0.5) = 08.5 lbs loss, current weight: 166.5 lbs (not bad)
DAY 9 = (0.0) = 08.5 lbs loss, current weight: 166.5 lbs (THE WALL)

First, I did not post a supplemental yesterday because I fell asleep. Yes, it is the truth. I stayed late at work yesterday and when I came home I ate and laid down for a little rest. I did get up later real late at night to go to the restroom and thought "Oh Hell No".......yes I was not going to fire up the laptop to write a post. I just went back to sleep like a good little (ZC)er......hahaha!!!

Actually it got me thinking..............this can be dangerous don't ya know...........that I really don't need to write a supplemental unless there is really something to write about. So, from today I will not post a supplemental unless there is something significant to write about that can't wait for the next day.

Now back to the 30 Day Challenge: OMG......I hit the Proverbial WALL, oh my. It must have been that dozen doughnuts and cupcakes I had for a snack yesterday. I quit or do I? No of course not. I had a feeling something was due to happen. Either a weight gain or the wall.

No big deal, I have been through much worse like over cooking my Rib eye. HA!!! This is just a walk in the park my good folks. 

OK, now that little empty feeling is still there. A little weird, but I will not be calling the ambulance anytime soon. On the other side: my foot is healing really nice. The pain on the top of the foot is completely gone. The pain at the heal is almost gone. Not bad, not bad at all.

Until tomorrow, have a great day my family and friends. Keep On Keeping On and Always Battle On!!

5/3/2017 - ZC / 5BD / Egg Fast Challenge Day 8

Hello all,

I guess I passed torture week of the 5BD phase. I think I remember that it takes around 5-7 days to get used to the diet. Millage varies.......I guess. HA! So, is Dave used to it?

Results thus far:

(Please let me know if I mess up on my math below, I might add or subtract incorrectly)

DAY 1 = (0.0) = 00.0 lbs,loss, current weight: 175.0 lbs (out the gate)
DAY 2 = (2.0) = 02.0 lbs, loss, current weight: 173.0 lbs (talk to me)
DAY 3 = (1.0) = 03.0 lbs loss, current weight: 172.0 lbs (keep it coming)
DAY 4 = (0.5) = 03.5 lbs loss, current weight: 171.5 lbs (oh my)
DAY 5 = (0.5) = 04.0 lbs loss, current weight: 171.0 lbs (yeah baby)
DAY 6 = (1.0) = 05.0 lbs loss, current weight: 170.0 lbs (this is how we do it)
DAY 7 = (3.0) = 08.0 lbs loss, current weight: 167.0 lbs (not so fast)
DAY 8 = (0.5) = 08.5 lbs loss, current weight: 166.5 lbs (not bad)

Well, I can honestly say that I am not exactly used to it, but it is not as bad as it was a few days ago. The empty feeling is still there, but it seem to be fading a bit. Oh and as far as getting passed the torture phase.........OK it is not torture, I was just being a little dramatic. Imagine that??? 

To tell you the truth I was expecting a slight gain today. I just thought that 3 lb loss was too much at one time. I know my weight went up and down a few times if memory serves me right. I know I could go back in the archive and look, but I am lazy right now. Lol!!!

So only three (3) more weeks of this Hell left to go..........hahaha!!! It's really not that bad. I think if I was not preoccupied with the foot deal I would be a little optimistic. Some good news is that the pain on the top of the foot is almost gone and the pain on the heal is getting much better.

Well, I have yet to mention my Dear Wife (DW) during all of this diet stuff. Usually she would have some concern/negative comments on my wacky experiments. To my surprise she has basically very little to say except if I wanted her to boil some extra eggs. Wow, what a change. I guess we are all just getting older in my house and are just excepting each others ways.

All in all things are going good for the most part. Thing could be better, things could be worse. I will just follow this path for the 30 days and see where it takes me. 

IMPORTANT NOTICE: I really want this to be my last 5BD experiment. Why you may ask. OK, since you twisted my arm I will tell you why. Twice I have done this experiment and came out with great results, but at the end of the day I gained back some of the weight. Now I have to ask myself two (2) things:

1. Can I manage the way I eat after the 5BD in order not to gain the weight back?

2. Was my previous weight actually right for me to start with?

The answer at this moment in time is I don't know and I don't know. What I do know is that this will be the last time I will do this extreme diet. I like challenges and for me this is one. Yet, I feel that if I just cut down a little and just stop eating when I feel satisfied I could get the same results, thou it may take longer, who really cares in the end. I dunno, that is just my oh so little opinion that means nothing to anyone except to me. 

Look-It: My success on the Zero Carb Life Style, yes I said LIFESTYLE not diet. Works for me because I stuck to the CORE PRINCIPLES:

Eat when hungry and Drink when thirsty. 

Now to tell you the truth I totally agree with the first core principle 100%, but I feel that we should not wait until we feel thirst to drink. I think good hydration is a key to good health and I really did not follow the second core much. 

I have preached many times that it is not required to make a "Happy Plate" every time you sit down to a meal. Yes, my fine folks it is perfectly OK to push the plate away when you are satisfied .... yes it truly is............ Take it, leave it........it really does not matter. It always up to you.

Have a great day my family and friends. The choice is yours, it always has been and always will be. Keep the Faith and Always Battle On!!!
