Magnifico Salad Recipe - Lives up to its name

February 2nd, 2007

Thought it was time I gave you my all-time-favorite salad recipe - Magnifico Salad.   Its a very tasty salad full of Mediterranean flavors.  Very easy to adapt to your own tastes, but unless there's an ingredient you dislike, I suggest you try it with all of the ingredients first.

Sudden Weight Gains and Fluid Retention

January 10th, 2007

Now that I'm weighing myself every day, first thing in the morning and last thing at night, I'm noticing that I'm quite prone to sudden weight gains of up to two kilos (4 1/2 pounds).  Fortunately, I'm using 'body fat' scales.  They should really be called 'hydration scales' because the 'body fat percentage' that the scales show is not just affected by your body fat, but also by your hydration, the amount of fluid in your body (and its also affected by wet feet!).

Plateaus, Stalling, & Weighing In

November 26th, 2006

I've been on lots of diets in my time. 

When I was young, most of the popular diets were low carb, they nearly all worked - at least for a while.  I never had all that much weight to lose, so I don't know how they would have worked over longer periods of time

Cutting salt and hidden sodium

I didn't realize quite how long it had been - I'd never intended to make this one more abandoned blog.

Back to the sudden, overnight 2 kilo gain.
