HFCS vs. Sugar

Interesting article debating which is "better" for you - high fructose corn syrup or sugar.

Read for yourself HERE.

Bottom line: avoid both!

Paleo Fest

Been in a bit of blog hibernation lately. Truth is that I've been pretty swamped at work plus my gym membership ran out. Currently waiting for a local Planet Fitness to open up next month and then I'll hit it. Been sponging off some friends for temporary guest memberships in the mean time.

Anyway, had a paleo fest which included bacon wrapped scallops, grilled shrimp, caprice salad, sauteed veggies in ghee, grilled chicken etc. Along with a few non-paleo beers. Well received overall and plenty of food to eat.

Was planning on making this sirloin wrap for paleofest, but people were full enough, so made this for dinner tonite.

Here's my bro Jeff doing some bare foot hiking. Primal.
Seems like body fat and weight are slowly returning to the 11%/150lb range like it was at the beginning of the year after ending the Biggest Gainer nonsense.

12% Plus, Ouch

As suspect, the biggest gainer experiment was making me feel fatter. Confirmed through 4/1 body fat measurements of 20mm ab, 10mm chest, 6mm thigh = 12.2%. Ouch. Well that experiment is over w/regard to overeating and protein shakes. Back to just eating until satiety and keeping the food real.

Some food pictures. Near perfect omelette with home made salsa from Zach, and Springdell farm sausage.

Weather was so nice we ate dinner outside last nite for the first time this year. Massive filet mignon from Springdell, with mashed cauli and sauteed yellow and green squash.
