Trying a different kind of pushup. Nicer to the shoulders but tougher.

Labs....

Within normal except as noted...

HGB A1C 4.9 % TTL HGB

C Reactive 0.5 mg/L

Uric Acid - 6.4 mg/Dl

Lipids

Total 217 mg/Dl
Triglyceride 66 mg/DL
LDL 145 mg/DL
HDL 59 mg/DL
Ratio 3.7

Non-HDL Cholesterol 158

Fasting Glucose - 83 mg/DL (Labs taken 8:05 04/09/2016)

Personal Meter

04/09/2016 05:26 hrs Glucose 86 mg/Dl Ketone 1.1 mMol/L

Comments - Cholesterol has gone up slightly. I'm bummed by the reduction in HDL. Considering more exercise. Happy with the Glucose, since I have kept fat about about seventy percent of calories I rarely see it above 105.

Weight stabilized at about 192 pounds and then froze there. BP oscillates around 115/70 to 130/85. Mood is great if I eat enough fermented vegetables.

Getting enough sleep can tough. Reaction time is good. Mental clarity is great.


Willpower? I've been bitching and bawling here for years about shitting myself. Those days are gone.

Thanks for the log (yes, I read every post.) It's not my cup of kim chi, but the fact that you stuck to it and were rewarded for doing so is inspiring. Helps me to stay with my own program. Congratulations.

Thanks, Johno.

Today's Amosovis Aug 10 2016 - Amosovi(12)


I am using a "sun punch" knuckle pushup, arms along the sides as the Strong First people counsel. This is different but is better for my shoulders. Much more challenging to do than the sloppy assed way I used to do it. Shoulders have stopped hurting. Let's see how it goes.

I am at times ashamed of my numbers, but the hard work is the diet, not the exercise.

Lunch on Monday was seventy CCs of olive oil. Slammed it down, ate a pill to help with fat digestion (see https://www.nowfoods.com/supplements/su ... es-tablets ) and did not eat until 7pm.

8/7/2016 19:34 90 mg/dL

8/7/2016 19:34 2.7 mmol/L beta Ketone

I got a bit focused and intense with others but no feelings of hunger. I wanted to eat but did not need to eat. Meanwhile others brought in cookies, cakes and other stuff for fund raising. I gave them $20 just to join in. Watched them eat.

I could smell the sugar in the cookies. Otherwise? Nothing. I don't have huge will power. My sluggish exercise shows that. What I got is a conviction that if I eat the wrong food I will suffer. Eating what agrees with my stomach makes me feel better. I do not get shitty. I feel sharper.

Still don't really like drinking pickle juice, but it settles my insides. Same with Kim Chi. Food as medicine.

I'm leaving this out there for the folks who have clients. Some of you might want to suggest this to your clients. Blood pressure is a bit higher but still not like before. A bit more "padded" but nowhere near where I was when I started this thing.

It does work.

Once again....

"I got a bit focused and intense with others but no feelings of hunger"

This is a restless feeling. I watch others intensely. Sharp noises startle me. Kind of "feral". Reaction time is pretty good.

I hide it pretty well. Don't hurt anyone. I'm more prone to do random acts of kindess in fact. When one feels healthy one wants to "pass it on".

Again, putting it out there.

No one I know will do this diet. A former neighbor has breast cancer. I suggested that she do this diet in addition to her chemo. She won't hear of it. I am not a doctor. I'm just a dumbass technical person who did some science once upon a time.
