Broda Barnes

Recently I took a trip down to Dagobah to meet master Broda. Many think Broda to be deceased, but in actuality, in his mighty Jedi skills, he flew away to a distant, swampy planet. I’ve been there. We hung out. He showed me how to boost my thyroid while standing on my head. And yes I brought my droids with me, T2D2 and T3PO. Okay that’ll do with the Star Wars metaphors, but come on, the guy’s...

CBS News Fraud – Jan Kwasniewski

The other day a fried of mine passed along a CBS evening news report on Polish doctor Jan Kwasniewski. Please click here to watch. Many people have mentioned Kwasniewski’s work to me, as we apparently have come to near identical conclusions on what is more or less the optimal diet for healing the majority of illnesses facing humanity. Kwasniewski, like myself, is a strong proponent for a diet...

FUMPclusions

Results from a 30-day, all animal product, near zero carb escapade…This 30 day experiment was pretty dang easy. Very clear cut benefits include, first and foremost, dramatic improvement in digestion. Having to basically digest one food group and one food group only at each meal is effortless. I feel that much of the benefit of the all-meat diet can be attributed to this – same with what...

FUMP Day 30!

I’m a free man! Holy lord I cannot wait to crack open a huge box of krispy mf’n kremes and go to town! Finally this heinous experience is over! Nah man, I don’t think so (read in LL Cool J voice). I’m saving my conclusions for tomorrow, but I will say that this was probably the easiest restricted diet I’ve ever had to follow with the exception of Schwarzbein’s program. It’s easy to follow a diet...

FUMP Day 28

Holy Schnikies I’ve been busy! On day 25 I decided to change things up a little bit. Since the beginning, one of my greatest concerns was not eating enough food. I was picking up the vibe from long-time zero carbers; however, that such a thing wasn’t necessary. So I thought I’d give it a few days not intentionally trying to eat as much as possible. I also cut salt out completely for 3 days as...

FUMP Day 25

Today I had meat and lots of it. I roasted up a 7-pound slab of choice ribeye, totally untrimmed, bone-in, with a layer of fat on it thicker than my skull (if one could imagine such thickness). All-meat action is going well still, although I’ve got two new things to report. The first is that I was getting a little daydreamy about carbs today. I checked out a collection of Youtube videos...

FUMP Day 24

Business as usual over the past several days… The diet is going just fine and seems to be continuing to get better and better. I’ve even been able to exercise at fairly normal levels, going for several short jogs over the past three days, as well as do some brief resistance exercise. I must confess however, that I did consume something not of animal origin. Yes, I know, I’m an evil plant killer,...

FUMP Day 21

Yesterday and this morning I got to experience life on the road as a carnivore. Instead of having my usual homemade goodness, I had to seek it out elsewhere. It wasn’t too bad, but can pose a few challenges. One challenge is financial. Last night I went out to dinner with a friend, and the only thing that could have really adequately satisfied the wolfman was the 12-ounce ribeye. At $38 plus tax...

FUMP Day 19

This journey is almost two-thirds done. Although, I can tell you right now, it hasn’t been much of a journey. It’s been pretty uneventful really, and I’m having trouble remembering exactly what it was I used to eat 19 days ago besides meat. Meat is pretty much synonymous with food at this point. What can I say? Induction symptoms are more or less over. Sleep has gotten better, dark coloration...

FUMP Day 18

Dude, this has nothing to do with FUMPing, but I was working on this today and too proud not to share it. Look for the finished version (this is just the first half), to appear in my January newsletter at http://www.180degreehealth.com/ YOU! The Boner’s Manual Recently I hopped over to a website about Dr. Oz. Dr. Oz, for those of you who are somehow even more removed from society than I...

FUMP Day 17

Nothing new, nothing outrageous, nothing smashing today. Virtually all induction symptoms, if you can even call them that in my case as they were all pretty minimal, are all gone. All vital signs in check. The biggest surprise I think is the looseness of the bowels. I thought for sure after a week or two it was going to be like pushing silly putty through a syringe. Nope, in fact regularity...

FUMP Day 16

Ho man I slacked yesterday. Oh wait, that’s not the way to start off a post. Okay, yesterday was the 15th day of my 30 day adventure, so I took, like, an All-Star break. There, that’s better. The topic of the past few days seems to be sleep. Everyone and their uncle who has ever low-carbed it has been contacting me sharing their stories of sleeplessness, which even one of the godfathers of carb...

FUMP Day 14

Well, so much for feeling run down. When I went to sleep my heart was pounding and my body was achy. When I woke up (with the roosters as usual), I felt next to amazing. Sorry about all the blog turmoil lately. First I changed the domain name, throwing everybody for a loop, and then I totally transformed the look. Along those lines, I did have someone that was very displeased with the black...

FUMP Day 13

When I was in 6th grade my class took a big school trip to the nation’s capital. One of the defining moments in my life occurred at some shopping mall right in good ole’ D.C. Growing up in Tennessee we had absolutely no sushi. Sushi was just something us yungins had only heard about. But sho’ nuff, right there at that good ole’ D.C. shopping mall, square in the middle of the food court, was the...

FUMP Day 12

Yesterday we addressed appetite, metabolism, lipolysis, and some goodies like that as it relates to carbohydrate consumption. I would go into far more detail today, but I’m having some trouble sleeping on this all-meat diet! Dream recall is the best of my life; however, but for the last decade the majority of my dreams involve either urinating or defecating or both, and not being able to stop,...

FUMP Day 11

The lack of hunger… On my commemorative 10th day I pointed out an unusual but fully expected phenomenon of hardcore carnivorism – lack of hunger. I attribute this primarily to a drop in insulin levels and the subsequent release of stored fatty acids through the pipes. On a recent trip to D.C. I visited the Library of Congress and dug up a nice classic on obesity, entitled, oh so cleverly,...

FUMP Day 10

I’ve made it to a nice even number now – 10 days. What’s weird is how normal eating this way feels already. I mean, to someone who’s never tried it, eating an all-meat diet sounds pretty out there. Yet, the meat diet has such an appetite-stabilizing effect that food becomes little more than something you chew and swallow at a few particular times each day. My neutrality with eating differs...

FUMP Day 9

Day 9 and going strong… Got a little exercise today and definitely felt a little faint in comparison to my usual self. My heart was still pounding unusually hard and fast for the amount of exertion I was putting out there. I was really busy doing a bunch of other writing today. As we speak I think I’ve already topped the 20-page mark, so I’ll save my juice for the commemorative Day 10, which is,...

FUMP Day 8

Today was definitely the most easy-breezy day. The system feels like it’s starting to normalize. Sleep was a little better. My eyes did not glow red when I asked for things like kegs of beer. I’m really having to remind myself to eat now because I just don’t think about food or have any hunger signals. Crazy I know. Back to the conversation on up and down regulation however before leaving that...
