The day after Pemmican fast

This morning I weighed 171.5 again. My waist was 37.5". My only complaint about the fast is that it was hard to fall asleep at night. I'm assuming it was due to a lack of serotonin or elevated dopamine. But overall not a bad experience.

Pemmican fast day 3

My weight yesterday was 172.5. My weight today was 171.5. I ran out of Glucose testing strips, so I wasn't able to text my BCL. I've felt fine all day. I did have a little bit of a loose stool this morning, but I think that was the supplements. Its been an easy three days, but I'm looking forward to eating more variety tomorrow.

Day 2 of Pemmican fast

I almost eaten 2lbs of pemmican over the last two days. I've only had one time that I felt a little weak, that was before my evening feeding. I felt great after eating. I don't have a set amount that I consume at each setting. I eat first thing in the morning. Then I eat whenever I get hungry later. I eat until I am no longer hungry. It is usually a little less than what is in the bowl from yesterday's blog. Here are my BCL's for the day.

Upon rising ......................................80
an hour and a half after breakfast.......92
before dinner.....................................82
an hour and a half after dinner............90

So not too bad today. I think the high level from yesterday was due to some caffeine in some of the supplements I'm taking. The same goes for the 92 after breakfast. I had coffee with breakfast. I've been drinking tea, coffee, and club soda through out the day.

Here's the supplements I'm taking:

Ultra Source of life Multivitamin
Ginkgo Smart

Pemmican Fast

Tanya is out of town for 3 days, so I thought I would do a test. I'm only eating pemmican for the next three days. My starting weight is 174.5 and waist is about 38 inches. I'm using US Wellness pemmican with cherries and honey in it.Their pemmican contain 45% tallow and 55% dried jerky. An entire 3.2 oz contains about 380-400 calories with 20 grams of protein. The cherry/honey version contains 4 grams of carbohydrates. I'm scooping mine out of a container, so I'm not sure how many ounces I'm giving myself per serving.

I'll be posting my experiment daily. I've already got my first surprise of the experiment. I tested my Blood Glucose Level and it was 101. This is not good. I thought it would be around 80.

Tulsa Corndog Classic 5K

Allen, Tanya, and I ran in the Tulsa Corndog Classic on Saturday. Allen and I ran the 5K. Tanya did the 1mile fun run. I came in 4th in my age group and 35 overall. My time was 27:54. It was a great time. They give you cotton-candy at mile 1, beer or lemonade at mile 2, and a mini corndog at mile 3. Then there is more beer and corndogs at the finish line. This race kicks off the Tulsa State Fair.

                     This is actually Allen's trophy. He came in 2nd in his age group and 20th overall.
                                                            Silliness at the finish line.
                                                                     A strong start.
                                                                    What a team!
                                                                   Food rewards.

Caveman Bars

After my run this morning I picked up a couple of snack bars I hadn't seen before and tried them.

They were both very tasty. Both were gluten, soy, and dairy free. They do have brown rice syrup and cane syrup. I would have used honey. If fact, I have made similar bars at home. I take them on ski trips with me. You can find out about all their foods at:

Casting Call

I went to the Hard Rock Casino this afternoon and did a minute video for the Survivor Casting Call. Wish me luck.

The latest alcohol craze in paleo land is ciders. I tried 4 this weekend.

The pear cider from Sir Perry was delicious. The Hornsby apple cider was sweet. The Woodchuck was tart. The Angry Orchard was somewhere in-between the other two. All four were good.

On a different note. I ran in the Escape from Turkey Mountain 5 mile run today. It was a fun but hard run. I've been running in 5k's lately, but this was 5 miles.

 Not a very good picture, but wgaf. I came in 93rd overall. I'm not sure how I did for my age group.

Great run this morning on Turkey Mountain with Monica and Allen. Tomorrow Allen and I will be running in the "Escape Turkey Mountain" 5 mile event.

Mud Run and more

Its been quite a while since I posted a blog. Here's some pictures from the Mud Run back in July.
I've got to add a couple of other podcast I've been listening to lately.

 Ben Greenfield is the top trusted source worldwide for people to learn how to use the most efficient techniques possible to transform their bodies, achieve their physical goals and become superhuman. is a free website that was started due to the high demand for readily available health related information and posts on nutrition, diet, cancer, and other pertinent health topics. The posts are updated frequently and range from general opinion pieces to descriptive reviews of medical literature. Health, nutrition, and dietary information has been turned into an extremely complicated and confusing topic within the field of medicine.

I read a book that I found really interesting. It was about how to monitor your blood glucose level for weight control.
