I am still recovering from Superbowl Sunday and as my glucose has gone down somewhat, my body weight is up once again. So once again, it is time to get busy. It amazes me how quickly the body can convert carbohydrates into fat, but how long it takes to burn that fat. I must focus on the diet and get myself back into a ketogetic state to start burning that body fat once again, while utilizing cardio and strength training to assist.

One of my goals over the next 30 days is to increase my vegetable intake my eating fresh dark greens each day for lunch. Kale, baby spinach and Romain lettuce will be on my list for this month. This practice in combination with other healthy vegetables with dinner will be the winning combination of getting all of the micro-nutrients I need on a daily basis.

I suppose that I could label myself as a meat eating vegetarian. Or maybe simply one who eats whole foods. Whatever it is, I am figuring it all out.
