Greetings Buddies:

All of you rock! So much encouragement and information we share together.

I now am listening to Dave Asprey's book titled "The Bulletproof Diet." As you all may know, I have been drinking Bulletproof coffee every morning for several months and adore it! (If you are unfamiliar, you can GOOGLE it.)

I also am learning from his book that so much of what I already do is related to his theories: eating low carb and high fat, intermittent fasting, and drinking coffee with grassfed butter and either straight up coconut oil or the more quickly absorbed MCT oil - medium chain triglycerides.

Tomorrow morning I am going to use the MCT oil before my workout to see if there is a difference between MCT oil or straight up coconut oil. I realize that MCT oil is derived from coconut - it has a faster absorption rate so I want to compare how it effects my energy level at the gym.

Greetings Buddies:

So, tweak, tweak and tweak some more! My food plan for July was eating increased carbs and additional calories to see if I could continue to lose at the same rate as prior months.

Answer: A GIANT NO.

I averaged about 32 total carbs per day - about 11% of my daily intake during July. I think I lost about two pounds the whole month. Don't get me wrong - I am happy to lose more fat...but I have lost up to five pounds in one month.

So, tweak, tweak and tweak some more! My food plan for August will be to get the total carbs to average 20 per day, and keep the calories within my RDI. The carbs will be about 8% - 9% of the daily intake in August

Let's see how it goes for me. I have a soft goal of hitting the 160's by October...hope I can do it.

Greetings my Buddies!

It has been an interesting and pleasant weekend - eating higher carb and some wine though...probably will not bode well for the "Idiot Box" later.

My BIG THING this weekend was coming to really understand about MODERATION and PORTION CONTROL.

Life will go on and there will be times when I will be eating on the fly - we just have to learn how to make good choices and limit ourselves to 'just a taste or one bite' at times.

We went to an outdoor Blues music festival all day yesterday with friends. It was fun to be outside, and people watch. They wanted to go to dinner out so we did. I did pretty well - but it was still hard to not overindulge.

WHAT tips do YOU have that help you moderate and have portion control? I would love to know what works for all of you.

And, my new words of the week!
