How do you cook the beef heart? I'm a big fan of chicken hearts, but those are easy.

I brined it overnight and fried it. If you don't brine it, the heart is too tough. I bet there are other slow cooking ways to do it, too.

John,

I know.... my breakfast menu often has plenty of room for improvement.

The plan is to wake up and get some veggies, protein and "good" fat, any way I can and as fast as I can. The pork rinds are an old habit, harder to kick than nicotine.

Years of drinking cheap alcohol trained me to down just about anything, so veggie shakes with odd stuff really don't bother me. Also, Whole Foods sells pre-made veggie shakes, pretty low sugar and lots of pulp.

Tomorrow some left over grass-fed beef, mango slices, and fish oil are on the menu. More paleo/zone probably!

yesterdays rating: it works, but not every day

1 can solid albacore mashed in with 1 whole avacado and some Old Bay.
I apple, of course.
The usual supps (5 fish oil caps, one multi, one Mg), plus the new Cod Liver Oil, 2 teaspoons.

Rating: Fat-tastic!

Brad, I dig pork rinds sometimes. Though I dunno if I'd eat them just after waking up... a little salty for 7:45am. But really, if you're drinking or whatever, and you crave salty snack food, the protein and fat of a pork rind I'll take over corn or potato chip anytime.

Artists were exciting. Artists were sexually free. Above all art redeemed the bourgeoisie from the greedy sin of acquisitiveness. As Jacques Barzun has argued, it wasn't long before art became a new religion, writers were revered as prophets, and as part of this understanding the bourgeoisie came to believe that the creators of fine literature and beautiful music also had beautiful souls.

This was nonsense. The so-called artist's 'gift', wrote Thomas Mann in 1903, has dark roots in a poisoned psyche. "It is a very dubious affair and rests upon extremely sinister foundations." The world should know that most artists today are sick in mind and spirit, a danger to decent people and heedless of the damage they cause. Plumbers and carpenters and other tradesmen are reliable friends. But artists are not. And because he understood this so clearly, the eponymous Tonio Kröger (the character of a writer in the book who speaks for Mann himself) was embarrassed to find complete strangers sending him letters of praise:

"…I positively blush at the thought of how these good people would freeze up if they were to get a look behind the scenes. What they, in their innocence, cannot comprehend is that a properly constituted, healthy, decent man never writes, acts, or composes…"

Literature is not a calling, it is a curse, believe me! It begins by your feeling yourself set apart, in a curious sort of opposition to the nice, regular people; there is a gulf of ironic sensibility, of knowledge, scepticism, disagreement, between you and the others; it grows deeper and deeper, you realize that you are alone; and from then on any rapprochement is simply hopeless! What a fate!

Credit for the Physical Culture movement in North America, the precursor to the bodybuilding movement, goes to Bernarr Macfadden, an extraordinary entrepreneur who published physical culture magazines, organized physique competitions, wrote 150 books and accumulated millions in the publishing industry. Macfadden preached clean living and whole natural foods. He ate vast quantities of raw carrots, beet juice, fruits, dates, raisins, grains and nuts. He abstained from meat but recommended copious amounts of raw milk. In fact he even recommended an exclusive raw milk diet for extended periods.

The dominant star of the early years was Eugen Sandow, whose career spanned the late 1890s and the early part of the 20th century. He did not display the typical burly brute image, but a finely chiseled body, resembling those of Roman and Greek athletes. With the help of Florenz Ziegfeld, he marketed and displayed his physique in artistic fashion. In fact, it was through this artistic expression that Sandow inspired Macfadden in the mid 1890s. In an 1894 interview on his dietary habits, Sandow claimed to abstain from hard liquor, coffee and tea, but consumed the occasional beer. He ate mostly wholesome foods, but indulged at selected opportunities. Sandow, along with most of the other Physical Culturists of his day, placed more emphasis on the mechanical aspects of diet as opposed to the chemical. He believed in doing what was necessary to facilitate good digestion, including eating at regular intervals, selecting simple foods, applying thorough mastication, eating slowly and tying it all together with a good night’s sleep. He was critical of over-indulgence and recommended foods with a high nutrient value, although he admitted to eating what he wanted, when he wanted, and however much he wanted during his younger years.

Earle Liederman, author and friend of Sandow, also advocated whole natural foods. Liederman pointed out the importance of a strong digestive system enhanced by proper food mastication for men of strength and large appetites. He described the popularity of "beef juice" or "beef extract" for rapid muscle recovery. Liederman also felt obliged to mention that ice cream was very popular, referring to one lifter who often felt it necessary to finish his meals with a quart of vanilla ice cream.

Arthur Saxon of the famous Saxon brothers trio and a contemporary of Eugen Sandow, also recommended nutrient-dense foods for endurance athletes. He warned against the dangers of hard liquor, but condoned beer. In fact, Saxon had a reputation for hefty beer drinking as did many men of strength of the time. He warned against smoking while admitting to being a smoker himself. For gaining muscle, Saxon recommended milk mixed with raw egg after a workout, milk with oatmeal, cheese, beans, peas, and meat. He called milk the perfect food.

According to his brother Kurt, all three of the Saxon brothers had very hardy appetites. Along with his participation in the strength act, Kurt was also the trio’s chef. Kurt’s list of food consumed by the three brothers each day indicates substantial daily intake, with little self-denial. Milk is largely absent from Kurt’s menus.

First post here.

Am observing IF in a lazy 'Ramadan' fashion, viz. eat IF-ish on rest days by having 2 meals (sometimes plus a snack , mostly an apple or other fruit and coffee) : breakfast around 10am and dinner around 10pm.

Lazy 'Ramadan' fashion, since for the real Ramadan you're officially you're supposed to eat before sunrise and after sunset (here 4-5am/10pm) and nothing in between, not even water (or chewing gum?)

What I ate:
raspberry - coconut omelette fried in real lightly salted butter
What I drank:
instant mocha flavoured coffee w 2 tbsp cocoa and 8g of 72% dark chocolate

Rating: orgasmic tasting raspberries , coffee is terrific as well.

Currently chewing gum all day long with perhaps 1 Pink Lady and another cup of coffee plus fish oil caps in between.

I've joined because of the references I saw about intermittent fasting on this forum in Anthony Colpo's Low Carb Muscle Forum (Rob Wolff) as well as some in Lyle's BR.com (Shaf = ??) . Most there will know me as 'Espi'.

Only if you want to make ramen from scratch.. or semi-scratch.

Take the cheap ramen noodles , discard the content except for the dried veggies and spices and replace this with shiritaki noodles.
I don't know how easy these are to be found as I have never found these in shops around here, not even ethnic shops. They are flavourless so I would just go for the fake noodles like some people make them by grating zucchini into noodles. As well as making fake rice from cauliflower.
Makes you really wonder whether it's all worthy the effort. Rather than eat something entirely different like my raspberry coconut omelette, you'd simply never go back to ramen noodles :cool:

Yvana, that sounds like quite a nice breakfast. How would you rate that omelette?

It's something I've been having for a breakfast since about 6 months and never grown tired of it. Mostly with an apple though.
It's really the perfect pre-workout breakfast. Since I've switched to working out at 6pm, I've made it into a late afternoon meal since there was nothing that could beat it. Probably the combination of fruit, eggs and coconut. Fruit for some more liver glycogen , coconut for MCT fats and eggs for lasting energy?
Not entirely sure what effect the cinnamon has but it's a good addition for diabetics. I was just using it because it's awesome with apples and kept using it because of that other property.

Raspberries are really awesome and I've even only tried frozen ones. Still need to try other berries.
Bananas are too high glycemic to be a good choice, unless it's a small one (or half a banana)

A bit of an unusual breakfat = leftovers from last night's dinner:
- Asian stir-fry veggies (carrot, bean sprouts, cabbage, onion, water chestnut)
- pollock
- basmati rice & quinoa
- sambal (chilly paste), fish stock cube, spicy peanut butter
plus 2 fried eggs added
and of course, the usual coffee w cocoa , now with green raisins added.. yes, that's yummy stuff!

Rating: not bad at all.

Explanation: I was unable to finish this meal last night, due to feeling incredibly stuffed. I'd taken 2 pieces of fruit and my fish oil caps about 45 mins prior to this meal, something I actually never do. I'd decided to not take fruit during the fasting in daytime and eat this , while preparing dinner (still influenced by that book Fit for Life from teh Diamonds :rolleyes: ).
Going to find out whether that stuffed feeling was due to the fruit , the fish oil or the combination of both.

Yvana,
That's quite a bit of carbs (of any type) and protein together. The rice, quinoa, nuts, bean sprouts, and green raisins all could be implicated. That meal probably broke nearly every (semi-valid or not) food combining rule ever created...

As far as I understand and have experienced, fruit more than a half hour before protein works well. Fruit (and significant amounts of grains) with a meal doesn't work so well.

I'm finding that starchy Paleo-friendly root veggies combine okay with meat protein (not great, just okay).

Anyway, there's no way to be sure where things went wrong with a meal like that...

Garret I felt stuffed last night with the fruit & fish oil preceding that meal.
This morning I was OK, had the raisins with coffee after the meal.
Yet much later in the afternoon I was NOT OK, feeling very weak. Should've known better than having too many carbs early in the day. They always make me feel worse later. But I'd run out of veggies and wanted to save the usual omelette for later in the day, also because there wasn't enough coconut for 2 omelettes.

Oh well you live & learn.

Mostly I pick one source of starches , either rice or quinoa, but my SO has gone on a basmati rice loving streak and I'd taken some of his rice.
Water chestnuts aren't really nuts, but I don't really know what else they are. They are part of what's in the mixed bag of stir-fry veggies.

The first clean was made from the floor and second from the hang.

240- 2 reps
260 - 8x2 reps

First from floor, second from hang.

Bench press - same as Monday

Squat - same as Monday.

Friday: Entire workout same as Monday.

It was interesting to note that he relied on bench pressing to keep up his pressing power for the Olympic press. His official lifts at the World Championships, which he won, were 371-1/4 press, 297-1/2 snatch, and 363-3/4 clean and jerk.

Scientists are using the pine-forested slopes of a Mexican volcano as a test bed to see if trees could grow on a heated-up Mars, part of a vision of making the chilly and barren red planet habitable for humans one day.

Planetary scientists at NASA and Mexican universities believe if they can warm Mars using heat-trapping gases, raise the air pressure and start photosynthesis, they could create an atmosphere that would support oxygen-breathing life forms...

By pumping in highly insulating gases like methane or nitrous oxide, the scientists think they could heat Mars to 41 degrees Fahrenheit from minus 67 F now. That would match temperatures where trees grow at 13,780 feet on Pico de Orizaba.

Having trees on Mars, as opposed to only simple plant forms like algae or lichens, would open the possibility of humans one day being able to breathe Martian air.

The scientists are studying what makes trees refuse to grow above a certain point, where temperatures drop and the air becomes thinner, to see how easily they could grow on Mars...

"It's possible Mars could have trees in 100 years. (But first) we need to understand what sets the tree line on Earth," McKay said by telephone from NASA's Ames center in California.

The rumor that started all this fuss goes something like this:

Several years ago, "they" say, Richard Gere was admitted into the emergency room of a Los Angeles hospital with foreign object lodged in his rectum. Some say Gere was alone when he arrived, others say he was accompanied by a friend (e.g., former love interest Cindy Crawford). In any case, an x-ray was taken and it was determined that the foreign object was a gerbil (either alive or dead, depending on who tells the story). Mr. Gere was rushed to surgery, where it took an entire team of doctors to extract the animal from his behind. Some variants say the gerbil was found to have been shaven and declawed; others claim the animal had been placed in a special plastic pouch. Still others insist the poor creature was Gere's own beloved pet (appropriately named "Tibet" in this variant). In any event, when the gerbilectomy was done the medical team was sworn to secrecy — unsuccessfully, we must conclude — and Gere went on his merry way, suffering no permanent harm other than to his reputation.

'Is it true?' you ask...

No. Not a shred of evidence has ever been unearthed to prove it. And while Gere himself has never confirmed nor denied it — nor, indeed, spoken of it directly at all — neither has any credible witness come forward in the twenty-odd years this story has been in circulation offering firsthand testimony to back it up.
