First Week of 10 Cokes a Day Completed

Okay, I drank 70 Diet Cokes this last week. And I feel good. I do go to the bathroom a lot, but the exercise is probably good for me. Okay, it’s a bit irritating, like a job to do, drinking 10 Diets, but it’s easier than digging ditches. My weight is steady, at 168 lbs. […]

First Day of Diet Coke Drinking

Today was the first day of 10 Diet Cokes a day, and it was tough start – partly because I’m in Nashville setting up a trade show for business, so I woke up in a hotel and couldn’t get my hands on a Diet Coke until I got to the Nashville Music City Center, where […]

The Diet Cokes Experiment

I’m going to do another little experiment. I’m going to drink ten DIET Cokes a day for 30 days and see how it affects my health. This time it the experiment seems a bit more dangerous, since Internet searches for big Diet Coke drinkers turn up a few people who have actually died from massive […]

Paleo vs. The American Diet: The fight of the century

In a recent New Yorker article about the huge current popularity of “Paleo” type diets, the author conceded, almost painfully, that the Paleo diet may be the best diet for humans, but, she quickly added, it’s too late: Americans are too far down Carbohydrate Blvd to change.

Salt May Not Affect Heart Risks

Check out this article in the New York Times, upending one of the biggest dietary ideas of our time: that you need to limit salt to treat your high blood pressure. Turns out, not so much. Ironically, you actually treat high blood pressure by reducing sugars, and grains. Oops. By NICHOLAS BAKALAR JANUARY 26, 2015 […]

Another keto tune-up.

Started another keto tune-up today: Had buttered coffee for breakfast, ham and liver pate for lunch, and am planning on just having a burger for dinner. Also made sure to eat plenty of butter and coconut oil in my coffee all day, to get my body as quickly into ketosis as possible. I’ll measure my […]

How to eat keto at a food truck

So, here’s an example of how to do a low-carb lunch, eating out. In this case, this afternoon, the restaurant was a food truck. Order a foot-long Polish sausage, apply a bit of mayonnaise and a slice or three of jalapeno, and then don’t eat the bun. It tasted real good. I was full and […]
