RE…RE…Re…re….. boot

So, here we go again. Hopefully, this will be the last time I have to start over. Not making any promises, though.  On Tuesday, I have an appoint,eat with a functional medicine practitioner. I’ll be seeing Rudy Mueller, DC from True North Health Center in Falmouth, Maine. Functional medicine is:     Functional Medicine addresses the underlying causes of disease, using a systems-oriented approach and engaging both patient and practitioner in a therapeutic partnership. It is an evolution in the practice of medicine that better addresses the healthcare needs of the 21st century. By shifting the traditional disease-centered focus of medical practice to a more patient-centered approach, Functional Medicine addresses the whole person, not just an isolated set of symptoms.

Surrounded By Temptation

Surrounded By Temptation

Since I’m the only one in my house that eats as I do (or at least want to), I’m constantly surrounded by stuff I shouldn’t eat. And while I’m doing this sugar detox program, it’s pretty darn restrictive. But, I’m powering through. I still need to prepare my meals in advance. It’s very annoying rummaging through the fridge looking for … Read entire article »

Grumpy bastard!

Grumpy bastard!

This is me when I was about 21. I probably weighed about 135 pounds. I steadily put on a few pounds a year— every year— until recently when I was a high of 287 (I’m 279 now). That’s how it happens.

Well, anyway, I’m back. Hopefully forever this time. I’m doing a sugar detox program. The 21 day Sugar Detox. One of my biggest issues has been an addiction to … Read entire article »

You know it’s going to hurt…

You know it’s going to hurt…

…but you do it anyway. Intellectually, you know if you do that it will make you feel terrible for the next few days. Pain and discomfort over the entire body. You feel like you got hit by a train. Everything aches; joints, muscles. You know your hair would hurt if it had nerves. Walking up stairs makes you feel like you … Read entire article »

Back On Track

Back On Track

Well, it looks like I’m getting back on track. I’m a couple of pounds lighter this week. I still have the cravings, though. I think it’ll take a month or three before they’re more or less gone. I even went to the movies the other night without eating any candy. And for me, that’s tough. I ended up eating about … Read entire article »

A Recovery?

A Recovery?

So after my few weeks of food insanity, I put on a few pounds (read the previous post). On that Monday, I never left the house (I didn’t work that day), so I ate right. Then Tuesday, I also ate right. I did work Wednesday and am guilty of eating a lot of fruit. I had some blackberries, which weren’t … Read entire article »
