11-12-12 – Wednesday – Gave up the BPA Plastic Water Bottle

As I got out of bed this morning I noticed that I still have a little bit of shoulder pain, so once again the workout will consist of walking on the treadmill. The good news is that my weight dropped below 170 once again. This is the third time that I did this. I am hoping that this time it will continue to drop and stay below 170. Despite the fact that I am losing weight my muscles are growing. This indicates to me that I am burning fat. I stayed true to the primal paleo way of eating once again yesterday and avoided sugar, alcohol and carbs (other than fresh vegetables). The results are amazing. Not only did I drop weight, my morning glucose reading is dropping once again.

I made one more additional change. I got rid of the BPA ridden plastic water bottle and am now using a stainless steel water container. BPA’s are not only bad for your body, they also reap havoc on type II diabetes. (See this article in the Huffington Post)

    Well done on giving up the plastic bottle – plastic’s everywhere isn’t it and it can be hard to escape it.
