The Cheapest Thing You Can Do Is Take Care Of Your Health

Hello Weight Losing Fans...

Today I stepped up onto the Scale... NOT... No New Scale Yet..

However I am excited that my chest has gone from 47-Inches down to 43-Inches.

I wrote that the cheapest thing anyone can do is to take care one's health.

There is an old cliche: All the money in the world won't help if you have bad health.. Now that might not be exact, but you get the idea.

I was talking to a family member today. He/she was asking if I have diabetes. I said no. He/She said how do you know if you haven't been tested? Well, my last physical was last year, and my sugar tests did not show sugars in the urine. I showed slightly high for protein. That is only because I had about four raw eggs, and two scoops of protein for breakfast the morning of my physical.

It's pretty amazing because two of my brothers have had to go on medications for high sugar in the blood. Here I am I am not on any medication for anything. But, boy I sure do take a lot of supplements.

Now, based upon some of the weight I have gained and lost, it's possible I might have become a type two diabetic. I certainly developed insulin resistance. That is a precursor to becoming a type two diabetic. So far no one has ever detected sugar in my urine, and I haven't either. I never did get my thyroid checked by a doctor. If I had I am sure I would be on some kind of medication too.

I think I am this fortunate because unlike my fellow family members, I used to run all the way up until I was about 35 years old. I even ran when I got too pudgy for the Army Reserves.  I was healthy for the most part. My real down fall came getting addicted to Coke. I went a couple years drinking 2 liters of Coke everyday. Then when I switched out of Regular Coke, I began drinking Diet Coke 2 liters. Boy, you talk about a recipe for disaster. Diet Coke created havoc on my brain, and my cartilage in my knees.

You can read my past archives to get the story. Now, I am on a different track. I think this will be more sustainable. Oh, I hate giving up the sweets. Only, that's what must be.
It's not easy going to friends houses either ... Because everyone is stuck in the old paradigm. They are stuck eating lots of starches, drinking Cokes, and eating Cake and Ice Cream.
It's still a temptation to eat the wrong thing.

Now, I take a lot of different supplements. It's not cheap. I am trying desperately to completely give up the sweets. So far I have faltered once in the last month.. I got knocked out of Ketosis on Thursday night, and still haven't gotten back into it yet. I am working at it.

If you look up men my age on the internet at least 50 percent of the men near my age are on some kind of medication. I am not. I haven't had major surgeries in 30-years, and that because of injuries in the military. The cheapest thing I can do for my health is finally get my weight back under control. This has a lot to do with the kind of food I eat. Fructose Sugar has to become a no-no. Large amounts of Carbohydrates need to become no-nos. And, on the list of things to avoid grows. I still eat fat. I eat lots of fat. Yep, that's against everything we were taught about fats. I eat meat. Today I had Turkey in broth. I eat vegetables that are mostly green. I will modify that menu later. I am concentrating on getting my body fat down. That might not mean getting back down to 170. As long as I don't have a bunch of fat hanging off my belly, then I will be good.

So far, so good.

IS THE KETOGENIC DIET DANGERS: All things you need to know before trying it

Hello weight losing fans...

Nope no weight scale yet.. And the weight I gave yesterday was a borrowed scale.

I tape measured today and lost another inch off my chest. So the fat is coming off slowly but surely.

Last night I had much better sleep. It took me until midnight. When I fell asleep, I slept straight through for 7 hours. Boy it has been hard.

As always, I screen your comments. If I do not like them, then I delete them.

Hello Weight Losing Fans...

I still don't have a scale... But, I did weight in at just over 208-pounds. So that's down 3-Pounds or so.

I was walking past a large mirror today and noticed my stomach doesn't have a big round bulge anymore. It's actually beginning to flatten out. I take pictures of myself without my shirt everyday, and can see a difference there too with the overlap of fat actually beginning to taper up towards the naval area.

A couple weeks ago I wrote that I had to add two notch holes to my belt. Now, I am hitching at the very last notch. So, It will be soon that I add more holes to the belt.

There is something else I noticed that's really different this year compared to last year. I am perspiring again. Yep, this is a very good sign. Last year when it got warm I was miserable. I couldn't take the heat, and I didn't perspire. (No amount of water seemed to help.) This year it got very warm in my apartment 91-degrees-Fahrenheit. I actually felt comfortable because I was perspiring. In that case I just turn on the fan, and I feel comfortable. Last year I struggled to get cool...  I do believe this means the hormones that regulate my body temperature are kicking in. Remember not long ago I wrote that my metabolism got jacked all around in a bad way on a different diet? I actually had very low thyroid, and my body temperature was low. Well, low body temperature means no perspiration, and no cooling off. So I would get warm and stay warm with no perspiration. I was driving a truck last year that had no AC in it. It was hot, I mean really hot. What made it worse is I wasn't perspiring. If I had, even though the truck was warm, It would have been more bearable with perspiration...

It's taking me a month to get used to the idea that I will have to live without carbohydrates for a while, that is until I can reach that targeted weight. I still struggle with waking up twice at night, but by all reports, someday I will actually adapt and sleep more soundly. Let's see what happens there.

I added this an hour later: When I went on the restricted calories diet of 1,500 calories, I lost weight. I lost 60 pounds in about eight months. There was one problem. I was hungry all the time. I would frequently complain that I was hungry, and at night it felt like cats clawing inside my stomach. On this diet I am not hungry like I used to be. Yeah, I get hungry some. Not like I did. I am doing intermittent fasting now. This means I skip breakfast and eat afternoon. I have a fast when I finish eating at night, and then wait until the next day noon or later to eat. This gives me about a 14-16-hour window that I am fasted. I am not overly hungry, and not tempted to eat like I did that last time.

I will keep you updated...

HOW TO LOSE WEIGHT the wright way on the ketogenic diet


What Your Mom Eats Effects Your Teeth

Hello Weight Losing Fans...

Hello Weight Losing Fans...

I am still doing the Ketogenic Diet...

I am still hanging in there. It's not easy to do. I don't recommend this to the faint-of-heart. I mean that. It's very hard to get enough fat without going to absolute extremes. I mean things like using bullet proof coffee. And, I am currently listening to a video where the man is saying the ketogenic diet is boring. It's boring to eat the same thing all the time. I agree.

Am I going to join the carbohydrate crowd? Well, not yet. I had an orange last night. That was about 30-grams of carbohydrates. I am still in the experimental mode. I am going to the extremes of fat consumption. That's hard to do. I don't like pure fat. To be honest I don't want to look at another stick of butter.

Here is the problem: I am Insulin resistant. I am not Insulin Sensitive. I have to be extreme. Yes, I lost weight on 1,500 calories a day. Now, it doesn't work.
I was wrong about something, I used to write I could eat 3-Snickers Bars a day and lose weight. I never tried it. And, I might be right. Only the cravings I would have after wards would be unbearable. I mean it, when I was a sugar-holic. I was craving sugar all the time. I wanted sugar and sweets. It became hard to not stick my hand in a bowl of candy at some one's counter.

The other problem with sugar is it contributes to the aging process. That's right sugar ages us. As hard as this lifestyle is, I don't want to accelerate my aging process. And, I must admit, it's damned uncomfortable carrying around 4-bowling balls on my stomach. I hate the bulge of my tummy.

My dream is to trim up, get down, and look better. My dream is not to be possessed with food. Yes, when I lost 60-Pounds, that's all I could think of was food.  I wrote about it. Well, on this diet, I don't want to look at food. I dread eating. I mean it. Even though I get someone hungry, I don't want to eat.
Now every once and a while I crave something sweet. So last night I ate an orange. That was it.
I try to bulk up on green vegetable such as Spinach and green beans mixed with butter. But, I don't sit there looking forward to eating them. I eat them because I have to. It keeps everything getting up and moving out. I don't know how many macro-nutrients I get from them. I just eat them.

As I have written before, just don't expect to see the high speed fat loss. It's not going to happen. It will come about some day, but not like expected on a calorie restricted diet.

Just remember: I screen comments. If I don't like your comment, I send it off into cyberspace. If you are anonymous, those comments too go to the trash bin.

That's the way it is... I'm David Dane
