So the metallic taste in the mouth, the dizzy spells-Ketosis. It's what the body does when you go on a low/no carbohydrate diet. The body starts burning fat exclusively .... some people think this is a bad thing, others are rather gung-ho about the fat-burning. I dislike my mouth tasting funky. Hopefully, since I've moved on to Phase 2 of our lovely diet, the taste will go away.
I was asked a while back about my opinion on the Zone Diet. My very first thought ever about that diet was "percentages? way to complicated. I can't do that diet." Nevermind that I can tell you the caloric value of most foods we Americans come in contact with. Or that every year I buy the new and updated Calorie King pocket reference book. Basically (and I went to the website to refresh my memory) it's about creating a desirable balance between all your hormones. When you compare the Zone, South Beach, Mediterranean, Perricone Prescription, and several others, you'll find they're similar. No extreme crash diets (other than an induction phase in some). You can feasibly stay on it for the rest of your life because it's a way of life rather than a diet ...... at the end, choose what works for you. That'll be the right diet. Just please, don't pick Atkins. I really don't like that diet. I remember the day I heard the dude who authored that had died .... I was in the diet/nutrition aisle shelving. At first it sounded like he had died of a heart attack and I about doubled over in laughter (that sounds so harsh-it was terrible that he died). And then I remembered that someone had died and you don't laugh when that happens .... (btw, consult your doctor before beginning any diet or exercise program. All information comes from a non-nutrition type person who just happens to like reading about all things diet/food/exercise)
My small town needs a bookstore. I want to read "Grunts." And I want to read it today. I'm gonna bet our little local library doesn't have it. I don't feel like driving an hour into our "big town." I NEED TO LIVE IN A CITY DANGNABBIT.
The Orclette and I are bored. One of my awesome WoW friends needs to move here for a couple of months so we have someplace to go and be entertained :D And then you need to move with us to NM.
I'm such a sedentary person. When I'm not running, lifting weights, or playing sports, I'm sitting on my butt in front of the t.v. or reading. I don't like the great outdoors (though hiking can be fun ..). I don't like gardening. If given a choice I'll sit inside rather than outside. Hopefully Orclette will inherit her dad's love of walking, my love of competing, his love of meditating (that's what I call the hours he spends staring at walls, lost in thought), and my love of being by myself, my very chatty personality, and her dad's desire to make everyone in the room comfortable and at ease. I'm not sure how that ties in with being sedentary ..... it doesn't, really. I'm totally rambling.
I'll stop the madness and end my post here :D
