  • A lovely dinner indeed, sb. Your culinary ventures have truly evolved, and I think anyone would be happy to eat at your table.

    I can relate to your thoughts about frustration about some posts about self hatred and body image loathing. I don't comment on those threads as there seems to be no getting through. It's sad, really.

    Merry Christmas to you.

    The old stuff

      Yeah, I tried to help her for a while and even tried to defend her against people saying she has an eating disorder and such but it does get to a point where enough is enough. She has problems and she doesn't seem to want help. She wants to whine and wallow. It does get old.

      Speaking of whining and wallowing, sounds like the bf is being a bit of an energy black hole lately. Don't let yourself get sucked in.

      Cheer up. The solstice is past and the days are getting longer.


      • Thank you everybody.

        My new tactic is to try to do all the Primal Blueprint fitness suggestions: sprint once in a while, lift heavy now and then, lots of slow movement, sunshine and plenty of sleep. We'll see if I can manage to do all of it without killing myself.

        The other thing to try is high carb, high O-3 fat, adequate protein. Not really high carb, just not low carb. Not really high fat, just all the fat I do eat trending toward O-3 or at least coconut oil.

        I bought two tubs of grassfed beef tallow to help with this. Yesterday I cooked a plantain and a few slices of sweet potato in beef tallow for my lunch. Today I had a grassfed beef steak spread over two meals plus mushrooms and greens cooked in tallow. We'll see what happens with that. The object is to use O-3 fat over other kinds of fat. I remember my veterinarian saying that my poor bird who has fatty tumors needed more Omega 3 and that if I gave it to her, it would melt her fat off (it didn't, but I wasn't very consistent with giving it to her.)

        So far I felt more cheerful today and had that clarity of mind like I get when I go keto. But that could be the sprinting I did this afternoon, or just finally being all rested up thanks to the holiday.

        • Hi there
          I just read your whole journal. Hope you relationship stops being so stressful soon. Men hey!
          My husband took a while to want to change to primal, but when we first did it, I just said you eat what I cook, and you can eat what you like away from home, as I didn't want our children to eat that stuff, but he has carried on eating this way away from home.
          I feel amazing when in ketosis and eating more fat. I have so much energy.
          I too am short like you, but weigh 100 lbs more than you, so I have a long way to go.
          Your hikes sound amazing, id love to do stuff like that some day.
