Mutant Diet Phase 8 Day 78

In honour of Vancouver weather today, I give you Swamp Thing. Mutant Diet Phase 8 Day 78 Last night was one of those opportunities to throw in the towel. I had a plan with the family to go wheat free, but that restaurant was closed and the next best thing was Rocky Mountain Flatbread which is lovely but it’s still pizza. However, no alcohol, no dessert, no known sugar. And when I got home, it was just water. It was an involuntary rest day. I was stuck waiting for my son to finish a Nutcracker rehearsal when I should...

Mutant Diet Phase 8 Day 77

Staying with She-Hulk, I notice in this image Deadpool is surprisingly un-scarred. For some reason I want to hide in Brighton Ontario. Mutant Diet Phase 8 Day 77 On a soggy day, I contemplate a Tuesday weigh-in (last for Phase 8) and a visit to a Naturopath to try to discuss digestion. I worry the Naturopath will be like everyone else and assume I’d dieting wrong instead of actually looking at the data I have and wondering what body chemistry is at work that is so insistent on keeping weight. Today is a rest day because I have to...

Mutant Diet Phase 8 Day 76

There were a couple of Things and She-Hulks at the gym today in Vancouver. Mutant Diet Phase 8 Day 76 Because I took the day off, yesterday was weird. There were carbs and I tried to penalize my calorie count as much as reasonable. I was still burning 1500 more than I took in. At what I call the stinky gym, which is not my regular one, but is super close to my son’s ballet studio, I did a heavy lifting workout because tomorrow’s schedule will force me to miss yoga. Well, I’m certainly sore enough now. I for...

Mutant Diet Phase 8 Day 75

I was trying to sneak in an episode of Green Arrow last night but it didn’t work. Calgary has been in the news. Mutant Diet Phase 8 Day 75 Friday morning. It’s raining. I just had a breakfast with carbs. It feels good. If I stay strict for the rest of the day, things should be OK. If you look my sheets for the last week, I’m burning 1100-2500 calories more per day than I’m eating. This isn’t a real equivalence but it demonstrates I’m not kidding around. For me – I don’t know about other people – the...

Mutant Diet Phase 8 Day 74

I’m trying to catch up on my Green Arrow on TV. It’s filmed in Vancouver. Mutant Diet Phase 8 Day 74 For a moment there, I thought this would be OK. But yesterday the fatigue kicked in. I had to go home and have a nap. The yoga class was weird because poses were difficult due to weakness in shoulders. Lots of strength elsewhere, but you need it all to hold these poses. And the sense of “What’s the Point?” is huge. The mirror still does not show me what I want. I would bet serious dollars at the...
