I had a coffee-fast yesterday (with coconut milk). The scale still hasn't budged. My mind and my body are obviously having a very fun time stymying me and defying the laws of physics this week! ;-)
The mind is working on sneaking up behind, today; yesterday was about ketosis and autophagy -- today is a protein re-feed. I have a steak marinating to take care of it until the brisket is done. Taking a hint from Mrs. Beeton, i sprinkled a tiny bit of allspice on with the salt and pepper, and sealed it in its foil coffin before popping it into a low oven. I would have gone the whole way a la Flamande, but i don't have any carrots.... I like to half-cook a brisket, let it cool and slice it before putting it back in the oven to tenderize. Trying to slice a TENDER brisket produces huge quantities of shredded beef, which is less desirable when you don't eat sandwiches anymore.
Interestingly enough, Mark's column today answers a question about carb re-feeds, and i was proud of him -- this guy is no simple-minded extremist, even if he is a jock! ;-)
