The scale is down a LITTLE from yesterday, but more progress is to come. Right now, i'm here to talk shit about vegetables!
Just like with the Salad of Doom a few months ago, the increased "good" vegetable fiber i had over the last week is STILL making me feel weighted-down. The paleo world is inclined to damn the insoluble fiber from grains -- it's like taking a wood-rasp to your villi, they say -- but to praise in very CW-like fashion the soluble stuff in fruits and vegetables. My colon begs to differ.
Just like Donaldson said, when i'm eating a diet of meat and fat i don't have a retention problem -- my gastrointestinal system is like a greased chute. I would be tempted to say that it IS a greased chute, except for the fact the fats are ABSORBED, not just sent straight through. But although i'm eating my usual healthy quantity of nutritious satfats and omega-3s, they're not able to do ONE of their jobs ... because of the interference of the foods that Mark claims should be the major part of my diet.
If i ate "mostly plants" as ALMOST EVERYONE says, i'd be utterly miserable. There's no excuse for needing additions of magnesium or probiotics or such aids to push out the waste-products! Thank god i finished the soup last night, which was merely flavored with a small quantity of carrots, onions, celery and mushrooms -- today will be solid meat, fat and coffee, just what has a track-record of making me feel good!
