    I actually decided to try it more for the supposed effect it has on concentration and focus. After 12 days I'm stunned by how different my ability to organize things is. I'm also off a couple meds I have taken for ten year for the same sort of things. My entire family and my employees are still not sure if I'm doing it as a prank or if it's really helping. Truthfully my brain feels fifteen years younger. 

    Right now Im all in on the 70-20-10 model but I expect as I go further I too will start adjusting the fat to protein ratios. The other incredible thing I have notice is my energy. I never really realized how harsh the effects of sugar are on my system. Head confusion and literally physical pain. Not kidding. I have been popping up out of bed to walk my dog and hit the gym earlier than I have in years. 

    As far as weight loss it's only been ten days and I have definitely shed some water weight. I'm also mentally prepared to train a little harder again do to the changes I feel in my energy levels. I got a ways to go but very happy with the how quickly some things have changed . 

    Appreciate you kicking into the thread and will keep posting here as I go forward. 

    That sounds excellent. Looking back I was in a fog a lot of times and my energy was bad. Sugar, processed, and refined food was the culprit. In the beginning I also ate way too much protein, meat basically. But it's really a long term thing and how each individual adjusts and tweaks it. Salads, small amounts of fish and real cheese and the weight peels off.

    I also used too much salt, on top of excessive fat, and drank excessive coffee. Over time when I've modified the excessive stuff that was a crutch essentially, is when I'm really feeling good. But it's a long term thing and you can't rush it, and I can't be perfect with it so I don't obsess with it. Kicking the sugar and junk is the main thing. Feeling good is the long term goal.

    Eating late is also something that hurts me. I had to fix that too. That was a big one. Doesn't really matter what I eat either. Especially any fruit, honey, carbs of any kind, and animal fats. Animal fats, in late meals triggers inflammation in me. So from now on any bone broth I make I'm gonna skim all the fat. I'll also be careful with fatty animal protein in later meals.

    I'm very sensitive to the carbs, fruit, whole grains, and sweet potatoes, so even tho I'm incorporating them a little, I see that it I have to be careful with them. I have to be careful with the dairy, even real cheese and yogurt. But a little cheese early and I do okay with that.


  2. I've been at it for about two years now. I would say initially it helped me to get off sugar and refined carbs. Which is a big positive. In the beginning I didn't touch any sugar or practically any starches. At this point I incorporate some sweet potatoes, oatmeal, brown rice, etc.

    I don't consume too much animal protein in one sitting, mostly fish if I can, unpasteurized real cheese too. The key for me is eating a lot of veggies, moderate protein, and not consuming too much fat: moderate amounts of coconut oil and olive oil. I consider things like avocados, cheese, fish, meat eggs, etc. to be the fat now. Avocados are a staple because they are an item I can eat a lot of to satiate myself without eating too much protein and adding excessive fats.

    Nuts, hummus, almond butter, seeds, etc. also help with that.

    It wasn't till I was in it a long time and was able to limit excessive fats, and revolve my diet around veggies, avocados, nuts, nut and seed butter, that I made the most gains, and got the most out of exercising on top of it.

    At some point just doing the fat and not modifying the way I did wasn't working the way I needed it to. But the gains made by sticking it out are worth it, and remarkable. I can bounce off it once in a while, and get right back now also. I think that's actually recommended too.

    I did it for general health. I understand there's some people doing for high intensity training and that's something different, and the guidelines would be different.

    Touche.  But if you need more evidence of my ability to evaluate talent... go back and look at my scouting of the consensus top 3 QBs last year.  I liked Wentz #1, Goff #2, and wouldn't have drafted Paxton at all.  I also said people were quitting on Goff way too soon.  Goff stood in the pocket countless times for a mediocre college team and delivered the ball accurately over and over knowing full well he was about to get crushed.

    Lynch?  A backpedaling pussy...

    What was your report on Maye? On the other Maye looks outstanding so far.


  4. Sayonara Rene Rivera. Plawecki up. 

    Play Plawecki every day now and see what he is once and for all. If he's a back up sign a ******* good Catcher and jettison d'Arnaught. Enough of that fairy already.


  5. So long Curtis. When the chips were down he came up big.

    We need an outfielder, a catcher, and an infielder. Good ones. I'll take two out of three as long as there's a quality catcher. sh*t, I'll take one out of three as long as it's a quality catcher. La de da d'Arnaud's gotta ****in go.

     Would not be surprised if we didn't get even that tho as long as that twit Jeffy Coupon has a say. Hopefully revenues sag for the rest of the year now and his ass gets sore.

    We know two things about Mark Sanchez:

    When the team believes in him it elevates his confidence and his level of play.  When a team doesn't believe in him, his psyche cripples him.

    He's not the first.  Ask the Atlanta Falcons what they thought of Brett Favre.  Ask the Tampa Bay Bucs how many seasons they wasted on Steve Young.  Surround a quarterback with potential with the right cast, they can be confident and they can be great.  Give them no weapons and a crappy OC and a HC who is looking for a scapegoat, they are awful.

    Lol


  7. Smith coming up for tomorrow night's game. Plug him in and let him play along with Rosario. Let them get the experience to grow with before next year.

    They gotta get this staff right for next year. Easy on Jake the rest of the way, Harvey's almost ready, and get the rest of these guys healthy for one ******* season FFS.

    Sandy has got to get a player, or two, to round out the lineup. A third baseman, an outfielder, whatever, he has to get a quality guy in here for next year.
