Two posts again. I am not sure which one goes first so I will continue to follow to post the one that has the STATS last. Start your engines, get ready, and GO!!! Go where Dave? OK stop that, whoever you are. OK, comedy time over. The next installment of “Blast from the PAST:
Original Stardate: 7/9/2010
Wow, my H2O consumption has hit its all-time high at work. I started by taking 1 liter of water about 2 1/2 weeks ago (when I started to ZC) and today I just cracked open my FOURTH bottle! I still have about 2 hours until I head to the house. I ate my first meal (6 oz steak) at around 8:00 AM. I have been taking either two (2) GB patties or Steak or a combination. If I have some Oopsie rolls, I'll take two and make a dry sandwich with one of the meats. I probably shouldn't get too excited about the water, but it's a milestone for me.
People at work think I’m crazy being on ZC. I mess with them saying “I am on that all Bacon Diet”. If only you could see the expressions on their face. There is one that asked me for help losing weight and I referred her to ZIOH. I told her what I know of ZC and that in a nutshell Animal Kingdom “GOOD” Plant Kingdom “EVIL" This was about a week ago. Today I asked her (as I was munching on my Steak) how are you doing with your eating? She said “I’m eating meat” I said “how did you do on your extended weekend” and she replied “I cheated a little” So I threw her a bone.
My DW thinks that I’m eating an unbalanced diet. She works in the Health Profession. She recommended that I eat less and add veggies (Yuk). She offered me a piece of that pizza (Veggies only) that I posted about earlier because she felt sorry for me. Her heart is in the right place, but she just does not understand the concept (she is old school). It does not help that her Aunt is a Doctor. Hopefully the results will do all the talking for me.
Original Stardate: 7/9/2010 (second post same day)
Last night I had my first craving (oh no!!). Was it for cake (no) was it for pie (no) was it for a big steaming bowl of Wolf Brand Chili (not quite). It was for BEEF. I thought to myself "INCREDIBLE". I never thought that I would have a craving for that since I was not a big beef eater before this WOE. So, I went to the freezer grabbed one of my frozen precooked steaks (about 4oz) nuked it and ate it. Just like that, craving gone. I continue spending time in the FAQ “On Charles” to learn more about this WOE. I went to the Support Forum and did some reading there. As I stated before, it's a wealth of knowledge. I encourage folks (just visiting this site) that are considering this WOE to read the FAQ and On Charles areas.
I experienced a little tummy trouble this morning, nothing major. I'm real enthusiastic about ZC and I will continue on this Journey.

Today's Menu: Steak, H2O
There we go again with the H20. Ha! OK being hydrated is oh so important, but at this point somehow I thought that drinking all he water possible was a good thing (drink when thirsty). Jeez I even call it a milestone….how embarrassing. I still use the line: “All Bacon Diet” today. People just roll their eyes. I also use the “Animal vs Plant Kingdom” deal all the time. Look-it: I don’t believe in “Cheat Days” I think it is a cop-out. All you are doing is CHEATING yourself. OK look at it this way. “I only eat poison once a week or once a month”. Really?? For those that want to lose weight Cheat days can be a Giant Killer. It may lead to other things that you might not recover from and may even spark a being. Of course this is just my little opinion. I wrote that I craved Beef and I remember someone at the forum question it and did not believe anyone could crave Beef. I have to say it was a downer for someone riding on a (ZC) high. In retrospect maybe that person was right. Maybe I was craving the Fat not the Beef itself. I dunno??? At this point I was still experiencing tummy troubles, but still enthusiastic about all things (ZC).
Have a Healthy Day my Family and Friends. Don’t Cheat (Days) yourself. (ZC) is the way we are built to eat. Those other things only give us a cheap high and then we come crashing down. Keep the Faith and Always Battle On!!!
