Ketosis 2.0

image I received my glucose meter in the mail yesterday from Amazon.  The timing couldn’t have been better because I have had a two week period that I have fallen off drastically with my intake protocol.  Two things where happening.  The first is I was getting too lean.  I didn’t feel safe staying Ketogenic (a fat burning state).  Second I just felt like taking a break from having so much dicipline all the time.  I aslo was doing some very unscientific tinkering with adding Gluten back in, but that is another subject all together.  Since January 2014 I have taken part in my first biohack taking my body from 12% body fat to 6% body fat while increasing my net body weight 6lbs to 149 from 143.

Nutrition for the Spartan Beast

Nutrition is a beast

We arrived to the Vail lake park to the ominous sight of a massive cloud gathering in the valley.  As the sun rose above the hillside, it was hard to make out what the cloud actually consisted of.  The air was too dry and we were to far east for it to be fog.  It turns out is was a dust cloud generated from all of the cars driving in the extremely dry dust bowl parking lot.  Water trucks drove around to dampen the earth to no avail.  I knew seeing this, it was going to be a difficult morning.
