The state of diet and nutrition reporting is horrible. Remember the “chocolate makes you lose weight” claim that the media fell for all over the world—despite the fact it was a deliberate hoax to prove how bad the state of diet and nutrition reporting is? Yeah. Totally happened. Well, things haven’t improved much. Take, for […]

Time to take some more notes and answer some questions regarding my fasting experience. First, I have now lost 38 lbs from my recent high, which means I have lost 100 lbs since my all-time high! Woo-hoo! To visualize 100 lbs, I calculated how many cans of soda it takes to equal that weight. It […]
If you follow me on Facebook, you may have seen that I’ve recently been chronicling my weight loss journey there, and there’s been a lot of news to report! (The picture is one of me now that I can fit into a shirt that just has an L on the label–no X or XX.) A […]

I love rice. But it's high in carbs, so naturally I've wanted a low-carb substitute for it. I've tried a number of things. For example, grading and cooking cauliflower. Texture-wise, that's not a bad substitute, but it tastes like cauliflower and not rice. Even when fried with oils and spices that you would use making […]
Yesterday I put up a photo of some shakshouka that I made myself. Although I adjusted the recipe somewhat (as every cook does), here's the recipe I based mine on, in both video and printable form: PRINTABLE VERSION HERE.
Recently on Facebook I mentioned that I was making shakshouka, which is a middle eastern way of preparing eggs. Basically you use tomatoes, onion, red and green bell peppers, spices–and, of course, eggs, which in this case are cooked directly in a mixture you make of the other ingredients. It has very much a southwestern […]
