Post-trip report

We spent many hours walking Amsterdam and sight-seeing in the Central Ring area. We also made it out of to the country-side the last day in Amsterdam and saw perhaps […]

6 weeks report – 17 pounds down (or weight loss is not linear)

Track in MyFitnessPal every day as closely as possible Stick with 20-25g net carbs per day (Ongoing Weight Loss phase of Atkins) Give up all diet sodas sweetened with […]

Update to update

I just wanted to say thanks to the response to my “Life Update” post. I knew I was not alone in my struggles, and others had points in their life like I did where life/injuries/work got in the way of best intentions. I am getting serious about the weight loss, and while it is still […]

Life Update

Blue Yeti Microphone

Audio Technica ATR-288W

Carbsmart has been around for nearly 13 years, but last year they changed their focus from being the go-to source low carb products to being the go-to source for […]

Everything is not as it seems


I am in Seattle for a technical conference for Microsoft. I have to walk 8 blocks or so each way to the conference center, and on my way back, I noticed the sign hanging above my head from Protein Planet – Low Carb Cafe. It was 6pm, and they were already closed. A “Low Carb […]

I receive letters — sugar addiction worse than meth addiction

I normally don’t like to repost letters I receive from those that like my videos. Not because I don’t think there success story is not worth being published, but I really hate to self-promote myself. It doesn’t feel right to me, but occasionally I’ll get a letter so good that I feel I have to. […]
