Wow, I lost a whopping .2lbs. Talking about Battle of the Ounces. Jeez. What can you do? What indeed. I know: Keep Moving Forward!!! 

Hey I fight tooth and nail for every Pound, for every Ounce, For every Stalemate. I did not know what to expect for this weekly update. I don't know what to expect from any weigh in. I anticipate a loss. I very well know that I am not at my "Fighting Weight" no not at this point. No not at all. I will lose a lot more. I just know it. Why? (voices?) No not voices, this time it is ME. Hey I get to see myself everyday and I just know that "There Will Be A Day!"

Those of us that want to lose weight, those of us that need to lose weight need to see results. Why? (voices again?) ...........not! Once more it is ME. Jeez! I am Human and that old tendency to have doubt creeps up. Well let me tell you something that you already know. Zero Carb won't let you down. Only "I" can let me down. How? Don't tell me "ME" again? Yes that's right just little old me. Good because if those voices came back I swear I would just ..................... OK back on track. Look it. We all know what we do and why. I will admit that sometimes I have eaten past the point of hunger, I have eaten when not hungry at all. OH NO now he is coming out with the Truth. Finally, Yes! Actually a big Fat No.Just like I have preached to others: I have eaten when I feel the urge to cheat. I will put a chunk of Fatty Beef Brisket in my mouth and eat if I even have the notion that something is calling my name..... those evil carbs..... hey I live in the Real World and there is no way to avoid them, at least not in my case. 

I continue to physically change. It is very subtle and most of the time I can't notice. Then I try on clothes and they fit just a little looser than before..... just a little. I will take it. 

I might Stumble, I might Fall Down I might not see what I want to see when I want to see it. I Tell You What: My Feet are Planted solid. My roots are Deep.My hands have a Firm Grip on my Way of Eating and I will not be MOVED.

Today I had an all time low on Zero Carb= 185.2lbs

Have a Great (ZC) Day my Friends and Zero Carb Family. No Doubt!! No Fear!!

(ZC)er The Power of ONE




  1. We must not forget that after nearly a year on ZC, our body has shut down completely our mechanisms to handle any little amount of carb we can be expose and has made fat our main source of energy, all this be switching our "liver enzymes priority"... and these little bastards of carb are everywhere from mouthwash to toothpaste, seasonnings to common salt, even bottle water (we MUST read the label with attention).

    Also, one on ZC has to be carefull about all the chemicals that mimics the effects of carb by stimulating an insulin response, like MSG (and all the names under where they are hidding), citric acid, fumaric acid, ect.

    My point is that, sometimes, we feel like eating "past the point of hunger" or even "when not hungry at all", as you describe it so well, but I think these are the ZC "defense mechanisms" to overide any little insulin surge that was secreted because we have ingested some carbs without our knowledge...

    The fantastic end point of these "defense mechanisms' being that even if you do not loose weight, you will certainly not put some on, AND we will not be tempted to indulge in a carb splurge...

    So with today's "toxic environment" we live in, I think we must just accept the concept that overeating on ZC is just an healthy reaction that helps us to survive. Not bad at all...

    I will be travelling in Europe for the next 10 days so I have no idea of my "posting capacities"... but I surely know how I will handle food!!! Well, I think I know...

    I will report!!!!!!!!


  2. Hi Pro(ZC)ac, should I be surprised at all the great insight? I swear the information you graciously provide is really appreciated by all that view this blog. You are my strongest Ally here. I want to thank you once again for your contributions. You are truly the "Gift" that keeps on "Giving".

    I understand your point on eating past the point of hunger and you are 100% right. I may stall or even lose just a an ounce or so, but no permanent weight gain is experienced by me when I over eat on (ZC). Yes indeed I am not tempted to even consider eating carbs once I have eating some extra protein. No not at all. I just have to break old ways of thinking and just accept Zero Carb for what it is: Perfect!!!

    Wow, traveling to the "Old Country" you lucky (ZC)er. YES please note your experiences while traveling Europe and do Report. I am interested in traveling across the pound later this year or next. I am very concerned on the way I will eat over there.

    Have fun and be safe.

    Battle On!!!
