Day 55 - The "Dish" and yummy thai

I woke up this morning and went for a hike with my girlfriend, my girl's roommate, and my friends Brent and Meenu.

We went to a place called the Dish at Stanford. I did a lot of walking backwards and a little bit of jogging, so my legs got sooooooooore!

afterwards, we went to Los Altos Coffee Shop for lunch.

I had eggs benedict florentine... delish! with a side of bacon as well
I was hungry, but not that hungry... I felt a little silly eating that, but it was tastey

I came back, had some 'magic', some raw milk and a Greens Plus bar.

At night I went to Osha Thai in the city for my friend Sujana's 30th birthday.

I sat next to my brother and had a few appetizers, tuna tartare and duck rolls, the main entree being shrimp paste fried rice, with a little duck curry and chicken curry

Nice cake for dessert, had a slice of this mocha torte

Came back to my girlfriend's, had some 'magic' and some raw milk, chilean sea bass and pumpkin pie

Day 54 - Diet adversity

so instead of fasting and crap

my boss wanted to have lunch, so to a mexican place we went...

Man I was tired yesterday...

I had a loooooong day in the field, so I opted for no breakfast...

I fasted all day until dinner, I am finding that this is actually counterproductive for me and overall fat loss... maybe 2 meals a day is best for me, although on the weekends (Sundays), I really prefer one meal...

ok, so I love CSI and I love The Office

that's it, that is the turmoil in my life


so after fasting all day, I wasn't in an egg mood, so I had:

2 tbs organic coconut oil
lamb steak w/organic cumin and organic turmeric
4 slice uncured bacon

that's it!

tomorrow will have raw milk and unheated honey and carbs, my last day of 'fun' food before the performance on the 20th

Wednesday, October 10, 2007

Day 38 - 50% raw with Ezekiel bread :)

I was getting hungry today so I broke down...

actually, the CEO of the 'magic' company told me to have 50g of carbs per day with the 'magic' but I stopped taking his advice because frankly, I could not limit my carb intake...

well today I did, and intelligently so, all while getting my raw protein in, but I was a little short on raw fats I think... I am going back to just meat, eggs, and coconut oil tomorrow as Friday night will be Etheopian food, where I will enjoy kitfo! (a raw beef dish)

I tried my dark blue jeans on today, they fit but still not super comfy... hopefully I can wear them on Friday night.

I forgot to mention that my new shorts that I could not wear comfortably were worn the entire football extravaganza afternoon last Sunday...

I enjoyed my dinner so much today:

first - dose of 'magic'

15 minute wait

2 sandwiches: 4 slice ezekiel bread, 4 slice bacon, 1 organic avocado w/organic lime juice and cumin, mayo

0.72 lb ribeye - meat raw, fat seared - with nama shoyu

I dropped off my girlfriend at the airport, then had a nice brunch of:

2 tbs organic coconut oil
0.46 lb ground beef
nama shoyu
sesame seeds
1 tbs apple cider vinegar

100% raw

I had singing rehearsal, then a nice dinner at my family house. My mom won't stand me eating raw meat, so I seared two lamb center loin chops and ate them with 1 clove organic garlic and nama shoyu. I also had three raw eggs.

I also had a small bite of pasteurized cheese at WFoods and bit of prasad (green apple) after my dinner...

overall I say 75% raw

and the weirdest thing, Stanford upset at USC, at USC!!! they were 40 point underdogs!!!

Day 33 - 100% raw

so I woke up a little early this morning and went to go shoot hoops with my Amgen buddies...

I played a lot better this time, but I still have a long way to go...

dinner was simple and delicious:

4 organic eggs
0.18 lamb round
0.48 lb ground beef
nama shoyu (raw soy sauce)
1 tsp organic coconut oil

100% raw today, yeah!

Day 32 - Impromptu lunch and cravins'

so I was going to hop back on the wagon but we had an impromptu lunch with a colleague who we just found out was leaving! ugh!

lunch was at the same vietnamese place as yesterday, basically the same meal, just a few less potstickers!

I had dinner by myself at Sushi Tomo in Mountain View:

miso soup
pork skewers
1 hamachi
2 spicy tuna handrolls

my gorgeous made me a nice late dinner... a panini no less... I didn't have the heart to tell her I don't like avocado cooked (although I am sure that after she reads this I am going to it!)... but I had a delicious cheese avocado panini along with yogurt and granola...

again, 2 doses of 'magic'

Day 31 - Isaac, noodles, and nihari...

so my best buddy Zeke came into town today...

for some reason, I was hungry at lunch, and because I was going to eat carbs and cooked food later that day anyways, I was like... o well!

so lunch was at the local Vietnamese place, I had:

Pho with raw steak on the side

dinner was:

goat karahi

then afterwords, 1 scoop of Procore Advance and whey isolate,

then chocolate lava cake with ice cream


note, I had two doses of 'magic' prior to my meals

Tuesday, October 2, 2007

Day 30 - 100% raw, Stock Options, and The Unit

well, I woke up this morning 1.6 lbs less than yesterday morning

I found out my buddy Isaac is coming into town, so tomorrow's dinner will be carb heavy, probably Pakistani food followed by protein shakes, then back to 100% raw zero carb Thursday to Saturday, with Sunday being football day at my house when my bro' and my buddy Partha are coming over

After fasting all day, 100% raw dinner was:

6 eggs
1 lb ground organic beef
dried spices/fish sauce/raw vinegar
1 tbs organic coconut oil
1 tbs organic macadamia nut oil

Monday, October 1, 2007

Day 29 - 100% raw and MNFL

I tried a singles workout this morning
I did 30 sets of single reps of chest press, pretty tough

I am sitting here watching the Bengals getting their butts kicked by the Patriots... the good thing is that I am ate 100% raw and had a hearty dinner before I caved into a large pizza...

the cool thing is that before dinner I weighed in, I was 5.4 lbs less than when I weighed in on Friday morning - so something is working

after fasting all day, dinner was:

1/2 organic avocado w/lime juice
2 grassfed patties w/organic turmeric and cumin
6 organic omega-3 eggs
1 tbs organic coconut vinegar
4 slices uncured bacon

btw, did I mention that Cal is #3 in country!!!

Day 28 - 100% Raw Again

So this was the second day

It was so great, I got my plasma delivered and my HD TV set up, so I could watch Football and the Simpsons!!!

after fasting all day, dinner was:

1/2 avocado w/lime juice
1 organic avocado w/lime juice
2 grassfed patties w/organic turmeric and cumin
3 organic omega-3 eggs
1 tbs organic coconut vinegar

I am going to make sure I bump up my calories tomorrow with more raw eggs, coconut oil, maybe even some bacon

Day 27 - 100% Enjoyable!

well, after the 100% raw I woke up 2.8 lbs lighter so something went well

today was another day with carbs...

I had breakfast with my girl (gorgeous, mind you)

I had some 'magic' 3 times today...

once before breakfast:

taste of mueslix
1 scoop of Grow!
organic apple
3 slice Ezekiel bread
1/2 avocado w/mayo
3 eggs sunny side up with bacon

afternoon snack before singing practice:

3 tbs makuna honey (I was feeling a little sore throat)
1.5 scoops of Grow! Whey

Dinner was at Wood Tavern in Rockridge, meal was delicious, I just wish they cooked my pork chop a touch less:

grapefruit vodka cocktail
taste of red wine
some butternut squash soup
pork belly salad with soft boiled eggs (sooooooooooo good)
pork chop w/chantarelles, potatos, corn, and bacon
most of a warm chocolate cake with ice cream

before bed:

lowfat yogurt w/organic maple syrup

Day 26 - 100% raw

ok, so I here I go...

I was chatting with a pretty famous coach online, Randy Roach, who is a raw foodist... he steered me away from sauces and cooking the fats I eat

dinner was:

4 raw omega-3 eggs
2 grassfed beef patties with organic turmeric/cumin
1 tbs organic coconut vinegar

I didn't taste great going down, but 30 minutes after the end of my meal, I felt wonderful

Day 25

Ok, so the 'magic' works, but I am loving carbs too much and am finding difficulty in controlling them...

also, I am cutting back on my dairy, including raw milk AND raw butter... having those only on treat days...

the reason, well, my mother and father both got analzyed and both were found to have dairy allergies (my mom severe, my father mild), so I am going to negate the milk proteins on my home meals, of course on days I up my calories and have lots of carbs, I will use up my protein powders and have raw milk... but that will only be once a week or so...

so this day I knew would be a caloric blast, so I had one dose of 'magic' before each of my main meals!

I had a great workout in the morning and my breakfast was:

6 tbs organic buckwheat w/tons of granola and organic maple syrup
2 scoops Grow!
8 oz raw milk

lunch was a farewell event for a colleague, at Hooters:

chicken wings
bacon/cheese burger
fries w/mayo

dinner was from a Korean restaurant:

korean pork and rice/sides w/ 2 raw egg yolks
raw milk (1 Qt total for the day)
tons of granola
