First cold bath yesterday. It was 66 degrees F and I could barely stand it! Submerged up to waist, for about 15 minutes. I plan on taking this slowly…for no other reason than it’s really flippin cold! I should mention that after about 4 minutes I was used to the water and it felt great…warm even. It was just that initial shock of cold.
I haven’t talked much about my diet lately. I’m still following the Leptin Rx diet protocol, which involves 3 meals/day:
BAB (big ass protein/fat breakfast): Today I had about 8 oz salmon for breakfast (wild-caught, for maximum Omega 3 benefit) and 2 pastured eggs cooked in coconut oil, and about 1/4 of an avocado.
Lunch: Usually a salad of some kind, typically lettuce and chicken, sometimes with hard-boiled eggs, bacon, cucumbers, black olives, or other things. I try to avoid commercial dressings but yesterday I had about a tablespoon of ranch dressing. If there’s oil and vinegar available I’ll use that. Sometimes lunch is a fast food hamburger with no bun. I know this isn’t ideal, but sometimes a salad doesn’t cut it.
Dinner: Meat and vegetables, usually. Last night I had leftover grass-fed roast beef. Forgot to eat vegetables. I also had some Nutiva Coconut Manna. That stuff is great in a pinch – delicious, high quality fat.
And lots of water. It’s about all I ever drink, except occasionally some tea while I’m at work. Much simpler than the 5001 snacks per day I used to require.
Ok…must go to work now. This blog is really my only hobby these days, for lack of more time. I’m glad its here. Thanks for visiting!
