I have been trying to keep my carbs low(ish), 50 grams or less a day while at the same time increasing my fat. I’m messing around with a ketogenic diet. I’ve been in ketosis in the past and probably cycle in and out depending on what I’m eating but I wanted to make an […]
That is the “GymBoss”, an interval timer. I think I have mentioned the GymBoss in a past post, probably when I first discovered it. I’m mentioning it again now because now I LOVE IT!
I played tennis this summer and did some sprints but as the summer progressed I really let my exercise go. […]
One of the tricky parts when it comes to vitamins and minerals is how much to take. To make it especially confusing, there are several different reference scales available. The three I mentioned in my last post were RDA (Recommended Daily Allowances), ODI (Optimum Daily Intake) and SONA (Suggested Optimal Daily Nutritional Allowances). The RDAs […]
The information on vitamins and minerals has gotten a little way from me. Turns out I had more to say than I realized. I won’t get to suggested amounts and tips on buying high quality supplements until my next post. I’m going to back up a little in this post and just cover what vitamins […]

This is sort of a random post. It’s not really about food or nutrition, it’s about fun. My littlest rascal turned 16 this week. What do you call a “sweet sixteen” party when it’s a boy? “Sa-weeet” Sixteen? Whatever, I’m sure someone has a clever term for the boy version of “sweet sixteen”.
Mark Sisson posted a great article on July 4th, What Does It Mean to Be Fat-Adapted? The article explains what fat-adapted means – your body burns fat as your primary source of fuel and the opposite of fat-adapted – your body burns sugar as it’s primary source of fuel.
A fat-burning beast can effectively […]
I came upon a new video series this morning. It’s called The Men Who Made Us Fat. There are four parts. My first thought was that I would watch the beginning of the video but it was more than likely going to be the same old, same old. I wasn’t particularly interested in the “blame” […]
I had an interesting experience last week. One of my dogs, the younger of the two, Annie started having trouble standing. Annie is a 4 and 1/2 year old English Mastiff. Last week she weighed in at 160 pounds (we refer to her as the “little” one, Tess is 220 lbs.). You may not realize this […]
