Leptin #6
Monday, April 02, 2018      19 comments

Yesterday NOT very successful with this project!! Lunch (I see now in retrospect) was too light in protein, fat, calories -- and I got way too hungry and overate at supper. WAY over calories for the day: 300+ Oh well oh well oh we... Read more
Leptin #5

Yesterday after my high protein bfast and lengthy workout at the gym (cardio, ST, stretching) and trip to the library ("The Hungry Brain" not yet ready for pick up: but I have an email notification it will be Tuesday) my lunch was delayed until ... Read more
Leptin #4
Saturday, March 31, 2018      16 comments

RAVENOUSLY hungry yesterday before the time had elapsed between lunch and supper hours. I did resist eating until supper: and I had a healthy supper (spinach salad, salmon, baked potato, berries) with nothing after supper until breakfast.... Read more
Leptin #3
Friday, March 30, 2018      20 comments

I am feeling optimistic about this experiment. Not changing WHAT I eat so much as WHEN I eat it. Because I've struggled for a long time with "appetite" issues and it seems to me that quite possibly "leptin resistance" may be a factor, I... Read more
Spacing Meals: Leptin 2
Thursday, March 29, 2018      20 comments

Probably had supper a bit too late yesterday but I've got the 11 hours in prior to breakfast so all good. And was on target for the spacing between breakfast/lunch and lunch/supper. Missing my late afternoon Greek yogourt snack did require ... Read more
Leaping into Leptin??
Wednesday, March 28, 2018      21 comments

I've been intrigued for a long time by JEANKNEE and ROSEWAND reports about the effect of leptin resistance. And now ONEKIDSMOM is experimenting with the leptin diet. Basic rules? I'm just borrowing here. But: nothing to eat after s... Read more
Robin Chorus
Tuesday, March 27, 2018      27 comments

I stood at the end of my driveway in my slippers and dressing gown, listening to a positive chorus of robin from down the street in a tree top. Could not see the source: but what a lovely start to my day!... Read more

FRIDAY!!
Friday, March 23, 2018      26 comments

We were out late last night -- one of those business/professional thingies involving the kind of dinner I don't eat. Big hunk o' beef, big hunk o' cheesecake. Enjoyed a glass of pinot grigio (ONE glass: which I made last. Tiny sips.) And... Read more

So glad some of you were able to open (and found useful) the link I'd posted yesterday on pharmacogenetic testing. Several would like to invest in such testing but expressed concerns about threatened insurance coverage in the event they we... Read more

Yesterday DH had to buy a particular fluid for his shaver which is only available locally at an outlet mall. OK then. It was cold but sunny, a lovely day to be outside. (Too little snow for XC skiing . . . ) We parked on the edge of ... Read more
Pre-membering
Sunday, March 18, 2018      24 comments

As always, I enjoyed the comments on yesterday's "gated" blog a lot. I absolutely agree there's a difference between "gated" and "bubbled" (oblivious to privilege) and that we need a balance of moderation between self-care and self-immola... Read more
