Here's my newest trick - CauliRice. With the new low-carb kick, I really miss a nice plate of rice under my entree', and this does the trick. Cauliflower is relatively low-carb, yet very high in fiber, and has minimal flavor, just like rice.

Lunch today - cajun chicken tenders, fried in Ghee butter, over substitute Cauliflower Rice, with Ghee and pepper. It kicked ass.



Spaghetti squash is nice too.

The GFCFCFSF Diet Part 2: Low Carb


"Death to glue! Carbs..... uh, once in a while." Wink


I like it! Get ready to have a ton of energy, constantly telling everyone to the point of irritation how great you feel, and if you avoid the carbs enough, for your pee to smell a bit funny (ketones).

This lady has a ton of energy, intelligence, and throws out something quotable every couple minutes. Well worth the listen

I have rediscovered Walnuts and I'm advocating them

Im on a walnut trip

Delicious and easy to eat great texture almost like meat

Walnuts Protect Arteries after High-Fat Meal

Walnuts, a rich source of the omega-3 fat, alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), improve artery function after a high fat meal and may be even more important in a Mediterranean-type diet than olive oil in promoting heart health, suggests a small study from Spain (Cortes B, Nunez I, J Am Coll Cardiol).

The study, funded by the California Walnut Commission and the Spanish Ministry of Health, looked at the effects on a number of markers of cardiovascular health of adding walnuts or olive oil to a fatty meal.

Twelve healthy people and 12 patients with high cholesterol levels were randomly assigned to eat either a high-fat meal (80 g fat, 35 per cent saturated fat) that also included 40 grams of walnuts or one that included 25 grams of olive oil (30 grams = 1 ounce). After one week, the participants eating walnuts were crossed over to olive oil and visa versa.

The researchers evaluated the activity of the subjects' blood vessels after the meal, and looked at cholesterol and triglyceride levels, as well as markers of free radical (oxidative) stress and blood levels of asymmetric dimethylarginine (ADMA). AMDA is a by-product of the metabolism of the protein, arginine, that is said to interfere with the amino acid L-arginine, which is involved in the production of nitric oxide (NO). NO acts upon smooth muscle in blood vessels, causing them to dilate and thus increasing blood flow.

The researchers reported that blood flow in the brachial artery of the arm, (flow-mediated dilation) increased 24% in the subjects with high cholesterol after they ate the walnut-containing meal, while the olive oil-containing meal actually resulted in a 36% decrease in blood flow.

However, levels of cholesterol and triglycerides decreased in similar amounts after both meals. Blood levels of ADMA were not affected by either walnuts or olive oil. The fact that a single walnut meal positively affects postprandial vasoactivity further supports the beneficial effects of walnuts on cardiovascular risk, wrote lead author Berenice Cortés in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology.

I've been off gluten, cows casein, soy and corn for over two weeks now
and, Welli feel anxious bout getting too excited yet but i cant
deny something very strange(unfamiliar) and wonderful is happening.

If i was to sum it up i would jus say CLARITY & BALANCE.

The Physical
1. Increased energy, some days its shocking,
I find myself bouncing up a stairs or jumping out of bed
literally and laughing at myself ' Who the fuck is this person'
2. Weight loss, and i've been eating whatever i want
whenever im hungry but im enjoyin my food
more than ever and eating much smaller portions
without much internal demon resistance.
3. Sleeping like a baby, sleeping is so underrated!
4. My back has not felt so free of tension for such a LONG LONG time.


The Psychological(emotional)
1. General feeling of calm
2. A persisting hunger for RESOLUTION
3. Depression has more or less been a daily battle for me
and well this is all very nicely unfamiliar to me hence
my slight anxiousness that it will not last but this jus
FEELS DIFFERENT, Balance again is the key word for me.
4. No alcohol cravings so far, yikes didnt expect tha LOL.
I had banned the booze 2 weeks previously and thought
'right im gonna give this up for a while'. I can honestly say
Getting drunk is the last thing i wanna do with my precious time
right now. Its so DRAINING.
5. I have noticed that harsh and hurtful memories and events
of the last 6yrs dont get a hold of me as they have, Boy i
hope tha continues.

Well its a start haha, im not telling family or friends about it yet
everybody gets so bomabarded by health banter in this info/misinfo
overload age. id prefer there to be very visible and quantifiable results
before i do.

Could this lifestyle be the personal rEvolution? the necessary precursor
to a collective evolution? And i cant use the word diet cos i know diets
and they are crippling unsustainable models. This jus doesnt feel like a
Diet. Also u cant do this diet if u still have a fear of FATS and u still
are frightened of CHOLESTEROL. Dogtorj's website covers the importance of fats and the cholesterol deception very
extensively.

I had a thought that resonated deeply today.
'food is starting to feel like its doing what its supposed to be doing'

I really feel Hopeful without the neurotic aftertaste of wishful thinking.

Let it be sung! is what i say and sing. Lets jus see.

So great to hear arkestra...your experience almost completely mirrors mine and the experiences of many others.

The amount of energy is amazing, isnt it? That was definitely a surprise to me, and a sure sign I was doing something right.

I had the same experience with alcohol as well. I didn't have to will myself not to drink...I just didn't want to.

Not being afraid of fat and cholesterol is very important. If I had to blame one thing for this obesity "epidemic", the fear of these vital and healing substances (that our own body produces) might be it.

Again, congrats!

Thanks Eddie Smile

Energy indeed. i can literally feel the reserves are there
to mine rather than 'oh fuck ok lets start with a vat of coffee
and a lil pep talk' to get some SHIT DONE lol.

I've finally sorted my front garden and its wily indifference.
The neighbours must be celebrating. bless em.

Getting back to the FAT issue.
What i noticed after 2 days in was
an insatiable hunger for fatty foods,
It had an emotional/physioligical aspect to it,
This levelled off by day 4, but it hit me like a wave
How Deeply Malnourished I had Been
And you're right about the obesity epidemic.

People are starving themselves fatter

Also ppl are being made to feel psyhcologicaly
Crippled and inadequate cos of their inability to lose weight,
The weight loss industry has become an occult of emotional fetishism
When in fact they are starving themselves to death,
Never mind all the women who already have decent
figures who eat a diet of low fat processed foods,
Its really really Tragic, and so engrained in our culture.

Fatty foods to Celebrate
1. Goats cheese.
2. Organic free range eggs. ive had a craving for
ducks eggs recently after a memberance of its
rich darker colored yoke. cant find at mo.
3. oily fish, damn i jus love it all, so good
with strong flavours too, i jus wish i could
get fresh sardines. during late summer i
spend time at my dads by the atlantic
and will eat alot of mackerel freshlycaught
that morning when im there. ive gotta learn
how to smoke before the mackerel season
begins this yr.
4. Lamb, chicken, free range and loving the fatty
juices. dont waste them. so tasty how can your
TASTE BUDS LIE. Oh i do love pork but where
the fuck is 'FREE RANGE PORK' seems nonexistent
in Ireland. Im a bit reticent to buy but im craving
that juicy salty pig fat haha.


Plss try this lifechanging approach to food
again i jus hate tha word diet, its a dirty filthy
word and should be consigned to the landfill
of really bad ideas and beliefs that the 20th century
Sold us. JUST TRY!!!! If you're human u know all
about suffering, physical/emotional blah blah its all
the same bag.

This may just shift you in to the parallel
Universe that is YOU as you should be and u know truly to be.


Lets not get too excited Very Happy , keep your reserves handy,
Oh i almost forgot, a BIG HEARTFELT THANK YOU to the forum members
who have shared their experiences. Its been absolutely invalauble.

THANKS Wink

Here is a great post from the paleolithic doctor, Dr. Kurt Harris:

http://www.paleonu.com/panu-weblog/2010/3/12/the-argument-against-cereal-grains-ii.html

He makes some important points about vegetable oils in the last half. Common sense reinforces these conclusions...if we aren't going to eat grains, soy, and corn...should we eat the oils derived from them? And in the same vein, we probably shouldn't eat animals unnaturally fed them either.

I've mentioned this woman on this thread before, as she has written an outstanding book called "The Vegetarian Myth" and has tremendous insight on the veg*n community and is a great resource for information on health and true ecological sustainability.

Unfortunately, some vegan activists took to pieing her during a speech. Oh, and the pie was laced with CAYENNE PEPPER. Mind you, this woman is middle aged and disabled, the latter due to a degenerative spine disorder brought about by her adherence to...you guessed it...a vegan diet.

The China Study AND wheat get called to the carpet in this blog entry. This is like Christmas morning for me:

http://rawfoodsos.com/2010/07/07/the-china-study-fact-or-fallac/

Some highlights:

Quote:
Perhaps more troubling than the distorted facts in “The China Study” are the details Campbell leaves out.

Why does Campbell indict animal foods in cardiovascular disease (correlation of +1 for animal protein and -11 for fish protein), yet fail to mention that wheat flour has a correlation of +67 with heart attacks and coronary heart disease, and plant protein correlates at +25 with these conditions?

Speaking of wheat, why doesn’t Campbell also note the astronomical correlations wheat flour has with various diseases: +46 with cervix cancer, +54 with hypertensive heart disease, +47 with stroke, +41 with diseases of the blood and blood-forming organs, and the aforementioned +67 with myocardial infarction and coronary heart disease? (None of these correlations appear to be tangled with any risk-heightening variables, either.)

Why does Campbell overlook the unique Tuoli peoples documented in the China Study, who eat twice as much animal protein as the average American (including two pounds of casein-filled dairy per day)—yet don’t exhibit higher rates of any diseases Campbell ascribes to animal foods?

Potatoes aren't a very bad offender...unless they are fried in partially hydrogenated soybean oil and salted like I-95 before a blizzard.

Putting on mass has never been a problem for me. Lift heavy weights, doing compound movements instead of isolation movements (i.e. shoulder press instead of triceps extension); eat till you feel like your stomach will explode. Just make sure you eat good food.
