    Plan a Whole30 dream vacation

    Kayak camping the inside passage of Alaska..... I did it for an entire month a few years back and it was the bomb.... I'd love to float the entire Koyokuk-copper river basin from above the arctic circle ( wrangle st Elias range) next time.... Set traps for fresh crabs.... Caught fresh steelheads and salmon walleye.... Foraged for tons of berries and plenty of native greens and foliage, ramps, thisels, etc..... Traded for game, seal oil and other food stuffs in small villages Talk about fat adaptation... There isn't a processed carb in a 1000 miles ( unless you pack it in)

    Boars head meats

    I will hold you to this!!! When it's coolish out we find places to take them with us..... It's always a circus when we pull up,to a motel to overnight and parade the three of them through the lobby.... But Florida to Oregon to drop them off might be a bit far for them to drive.... Lol

    Food facts..... There is a ton of additives that the USDA does require ( loop holes) companies to list. The law states it needs to be listed but there are ways to get around it... http://thefoodwatchdog.com/05/food-news/use-of-meat-glue-is-uncontrolled/ http://www.fsis.usda.gov/oppde/rdad/FRPubs/01-016DF.htm This is referring to the enzyme ( meat glue) Transglutaminase. TM. If the deli product that you are getting has been formed to look like a turkey breast or a roast beef/ham.... It more than likely has TM gluing it together in a slury of collagen ...gelatin..broth..... They suck up up through a vacuum tube ( Augustus Gloop) and pump it into preformed plastic bags... Sealed and steamed.... If it looks like its been roasted it was spray painted with caramel coloring after the goo sets up. Have you every roasted a fresh turkey and had the slices come out in perfect ovals..... Food Chemistry!!! You can buy bone out natural turkey breasts and roast them for well under half the price of deli turkey. Then consider all deli meats have a ton of water added.... The price is more like 1/4 I get grass fed tri tips and top rounds to roast.... Yield is 85%. So roasted fresh it costs me less than $12 per pound. Organic/ natural roastbeef in the package is usually $14.99 for 6 oz and 1/4 of that is added water So $15 for 4 ounces of beef.....that's $30 per pound!!!! I know it's convenient but it just don't add up!!!!

    pre-workout foods?

    I believe proper post workout meals are almost more important as they set you up for your future loads. i find when dialed in just right, im ready for battle at any time. Once your fat adapted... A little bit of protein and fat pre workout can be a great help..... If your workouts are intense it is important to " backload " your starchy carbs immediately after working out.... That way you start to replenish your glycogen that will be available for your next workouts It is important to pay attention to the type of workout you are doing....for me, if I'm doing strait cardio ( for me, HR at or below 140) I have no need of pre workout or post carbs, I'm burning strait fat for fuel. If I'm doing 100% all out short bursts, I also feel no need to carbo backload as going anaerobic is a different metabolic process and doesn't require glycogen..... The tricky workouts are when you go in and out of your anabolic threshold ala crossfit,boot camps, etc. this is when you are burning through glycogen at a fast rate and if you don't replace it your body will most likely convert muscle into glycogen. So, set your self up in advance by sticking to to W30 templates and eat good starchy veg post workout and meals to be ready to go for any workout.....

    At a New Years party this year... " Michael,you must try my mothers humas! " I reply..... " sorry I'd love to but I don't eat beans or legumes of any kind". ...... " there aren't any beans in humas! My mother will be very hurt you didn't try it!" ...... " we'll I would be hurt worse if I did eat it .... My resolution is to be a selfish bastard" !!!! ( I wonder why I never get invited a second time anywhere ..... LMAO)

    Conversation I overheard at the airport: " honey I'm getting something to eat....what would you like?" " oh something really healthy.... Get me a blueberry muffin and a diet coke". Sad thing is several years ago that could have been me...... !!!!!!!

    Back to " a little wont hurt". Why is it that knowledgeable dog owners know not to give their dogs " a little chocolate, or a little grapes" because it can kill them!!!! But they keep on stuffing their faces a little bit at a time, with things that will make them less and less healthy.... Oh yeah..." A little wont hurt!!!!"

    On another note, I think if go though all of human history, no one has ever done anything great, doing it in moderation! All in or go home! Ok .... Here's mine: at a party, " oh your not drinking?" " not even a glass of wine, it's good for your heart". No thank you, I don't drink alcohol...... .... Hushed whispers "heee must be an alcoholic in recovery"

    EDTA is in the class of chemical called a " chelating agent" (Summation from Wikipidia) Chelants, according to ASTM-A-380, are "chemicals that form soluble, complex molecules with certain metal ions, inactivating the ions so that they cannot normally react with other elements or ions to produce precipitates or scale." In the 1960s, scientists developed the concept of chelating a metal ion prior to feeding the element to the animal. They believed that this would create a neutral compound, protecting the mineral from being complexed with insoluble salts within the stomach, which would render the metal unavailable for absorption. Amino acids, being effective metal binders, were chosen as the prospective ligands, and research was conducted on the metal-amino acid combinations. The research supported that the metal-amino acid chelates were able to enhance mineral absorption. During this period, synthetic chelates were also being developed. An example of such synthetics is ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid (EDTA). These synthetics applied the same concept of chelation and did create chelated compounds; however, these synthetics were too stable and not nutritionally viable. If the mineral was taken from the EDTA ligand, the ligand could not be used by the body and would be expelled. During the expulsion process the EDTA ligand will randomly chelate and strip another mineral from the body. According to the Association of American Feed Control Officials (AAFCO), a metal amino acid chelate is defined as the product resulting from the reaction of a metal ion from a soluble metal salt with a mole ratio of one to three (preferably two) moles of amino acids. The average weight of the hydrolyzed amino acids must be approximately 150 and the resulting molecular weight of the chelate must not exceed 800 Da. I learned about this garbage when I was majoring in biochemistry ..... Fun fun fun!!!!!!
