    Go to Malaysia or Thailand, and throw a brick through a Bank window.

    By the time you get out of jail, you'll be nice & trim.

    Yeah, maybe so, but your health will be all shot to h*ll. I don't need a beating with bamboo rods. I need a better blood pressure reading and consistently lower blood sugar.

    The bamboo rods will improve your circulation, and the rice-bowl diet will lower your blood pressure and sugar levels... ;-)

    The rods will certainly increase my circulation, but will also increase my blood pressure. And Crunch, you haven't been paying attention. Rice is all carb. It will shoot your sugars sky high.

    I did the pan fried cauliflower thing for breakfast this morning. Fried in butter and olive oil and added some green and red peppers and onions. It was good, but would have been better if I'd used fresh peppers and onions, instead of frozen. I'll try it again, sometime.

    I started Keto last year. The benefits are many. Mental clarity and better memory, rapid weight loss, 3-4 lbs a week. No food cravings and was never hungry.
    The hard part was trying to get enough fiber without going over on the carbs. Avacados are your best friend.
    I did Keto with intermittent fasting. Basically I ate all my food in a 4 hr window and fasted 20 hrs a day except for bullet proof coffee in the morning. Bullet proof coffee is coffee with coconut oil or MCT oil and butter. whip it up in a blender and its like a smooth creamy latte.

    I used this site mostly for keto recipes and info. http://www.ruled.me/keto-recipes/#

    I did stop it. After about 3 months I really felt like shit.. Others on the forums said they experienced the same thing then did a carb load for a weekend and felt better and went right back on it. Not sure what thats all about. I tried the carb load for a weekend and never went back to keto. Pizza took ahold of me and wont let go.

    I also like a lot more fruit and veggies than I am allowed to have. Looking into a vegan o vegetarian keto diet now.

    Yeah, that's funny. Some people, myself included, just need that carb load every so often. I don't know why, but I feel better after I do it and I always shed weight after a carb load. What's that about? The trick is to not do it too often, or too long. One big carb attack and you need to go back to the ketogenic eating plan, or you're shipwrecked.

    I will add that a while back I knew a lady that did the protein style diet, but she did a purposeful carb up every second weekend. And I mean she would carb up! She told me that some weekends she downed up to three half gallons of ice cream. Even so, she lost a ton of weight and kept it off. The thing with her was, after every carb weekend, she said she got so sick from the sugar that she eventually just quit eating the sugar altogether.

    It's not feast or famine, it's feast then famine. Celebrate life, but if you go overboard fast to get back to where you were. Don't let the pounds get away from you....

    I see carb free diet as a 2 part epoxy. If you only eat protein (1 part epoxy) it goes through you without the carbs (2nd part hardener) and you burn off stored fat.

    Retired Dr. Friend is a diabetes, hypertension Dr. He believes this affects middle European people the most and developed during the dark ages when there were food shortages. If you got a carb your body stored it. He also stated high fructose corn syrup is a foreign cell structure to your body and it don't know how to handle it and they are very hard to eliminate. Now a lot of other cultures are getting HFCS in their foods and they are putting on weight.

    Yeah, all fructose is metabolized in the liver and stored there as fat. Fatty liver is one of the root causes of insulin resistance. HFCS is deadly.....

    I enjoy over easy eggs with fresh fish, both fried in butter, good quality frozen fish works OK.
    I'm just getting educated on the benefits of cauliflower, I never knew how good it was.

    I made it through the seven days of my fast. Went pretty well. I did drink some bone broth a few times to wash down ibuprofen. I have arthritis in my hips and when the weather turns I feel it. But other then that, just water and tea. I lost 10 pounds in the seven days..

    I am going to continue with the intermittent fasting, trying to go 16-18 hours between feeds. And maybe I'll do some more longer fasts in a bit....

    I'll start I the low carb recipe thread in a bit.

    For those that do not think they have an "insulin issue", studies show that 70-80 percent of Americans have hyperinsulinemia. IT probably causes 75% or more of the health issues most people face.

    Look up metabolic syndrome.

    I would avoid canola and sunflower oils. The rest are good - coconut, ghee, avocado, butter and animal fat. Beware lots of fraud in olive oil. Know what you are buying.....

    The one thing I would say about animal fats. When animals are not eating their natural food (ie factory farm aminals) the crap in their feed tends to store in their fat. So the animal fats you eat are BEST from grass fed, range fed and organic fed animals.

    I made beef bone broth the other day from some grass feed cow knuckle bones and didn't drain one drop of fat. Awesome stuff.

    Exercise.

    I have been suffering from some debilitating pain which radiates from my neck to my fingertip.

    I visited the doc on Friday, and she suggested a massage, but not before the med assistant put me on the scale.

    I was 15 pounds overweight, and I have lost 5 pounds since Friday.

    I intend to shed 10 more by the end of the week and hopefully be back to normal.

    Exercise.

    I have similar problems. Lots of pain, on both sides of my shoulders/upperback/neck, that radiates down the arms. I believe the problems stem from weaknesses in the small upper back muscles and rotator cuff muscles. The more I exercise those muscles, the less pain I seem to have, overall. My opinion. If you gently work those upper back/rotator cuff muscles and strengthen them, your pains might diminish. The best exercises I've found that help that area are done with resistance bands. Amazon sells sets of large latex rubber bands, essentially, from 5-10 pound resistance on up, for relatively cheap prices. The small resistance bands, (5-10#, etc. and up) in several sizes, would probably be all you need.
    As far as specific exercises, let me know if you're interested in what works for me and I can do descriptions on the forum or send you to good YouTube videos.

    Is it worse in the morning when you get up? Try sleeping with wrist braces to keep your wrists straight while you sleep.

    I really do believe in the low-carb diet. Salad instead of pasta, potato or rice on my plate. But so long as there are sliders and corn dogs in the freezer, I am doomed. One cocktail into the evening and my willpower vanishes. I know, I know... stop drinking :)

    hahahahahah, I grew up listening to the opposite.
    Dad liked to say, "I live to eat, I don't eat to live".
    I try to live in the middle of those, moderation.

    A dear friend of mine is currently in the stage of getting repeated "adjustments" to his new dentures. The dentures have altered his eating habits and he's lost some weight over the past few months.

    Having type 2 diabetes has caused me to lose weight once I got with the dietary program. Yes, high fat/low carb does work. And DON'T forget your greens!

    Exercise is a farkin' joke. Yes, your body NEEDS to move. Go for a walk. Regularly. You do NOT need "vigorous exercise". In fact, "vigorous exercise" can be detrimental to your health. It's already been demonstrated that short, like 5 minutes max, bursts of activity are actually better for you than a 5 mile run or "20 minutes a day" on whatever exercise machine is being sold at the moment.

    Humans are NOT like hardware made in some factory. We are NOT all the same. There are NO one-size-fits-all solutions here. Each person and their condition(s) and challenges are quite unique and each person therefore requires unique solutions tailored for their particular challenges and coping abilities. The medical "industry" will, in general, NOT be your friend or benefactor. Remember, these are the same asshats who told you eggs are bad for you. The very same ones who told you that cholesterol was bad for you. The same ones who still say that your appendix is superfluous, unnecessary to your health and well-being then turn around and prescribe some paxil or some opioids for you. They give out so many pills it's like it's a Mexican conspiracy to turn us all into maracas...chacha, cha!

    So take the time, do your research and get busy doing what works for you. Maybe get out and see other doctors, therapists, specialists to get their opinions on your condition(s) and cherry pick what works best for you. Might keep us all around a tad longer.
