Day 89: March to 190
I have not written much the past three weeks but my weight has been far from neglected. In fact, I have probably weighed myself more in March 2014 than in any month in the past year (26 of the past 28 days). Besides running, eating has been my singular focu...

Day 67: A new homeostasis
I haven't talked much about my weight this year; but don't take that to mean I'm hiding anything. I still write down what I eat almost every day; I weigh almost every day. Yesterday I was 194.8 pounds, for the record. Nothing to be ashamed of. When the year...

Brew Day (Bottling): Jalapeno Pale Ale
This is the last post in my series about the Jalapeno Pale Ale clone of Birdsong. (In previous posts, I talked about brewing the beer and then placing it in secondary .) Since I don't have a kegging system ( yet ), I need to carbonate the beer in bottles. T...

Day 52: Why protein wins the satiety race, part 1 (Enzymes)
Two days ago, I mentioned I was struck by something Kessler wrote in TEoO : Scientific studies of satiety have advanced in recent years, and we now know that most people find protein the most satiating macronutrient. It was a one-off comment in a section ab...

Day 50: A little bit about the fat paradox
There's a Starbucks nearby I like to go to at lunch. It's not as busy as typical Starbucks, so I can always find a seat, usually the same one beside the same window looking at a parking lot. I know it doesn't sound like much but it's the opposite of my cubi...

Running in the neighborhood
In Nashville, we basically lived on the side of a hill. It was an advantage when the big flood happened; the creeks and rivers overran their banks but we were much higher.The downside was there was little room to run in the surrounding neighborhood. What fe...

Rained out at the race track
I may have told this story before in a previous post but I'll repeat it, if you don't mind. I never was that big a NASCAR fan growing up. My parents watched, I think my grandparents up the road did as well (I feel like I was yelled at for standing in front ...

Brew Day (Secondary): Jalapeno Pale Ale
Two weeks ago, I put a Jalapeno Pale Ale in primary fermentation ; it was my attempt to clone a great, local brew by Birdsong. It's a fairly standard American Pale Ale, but with a hint of jalapenos in the base flavor and a spicy bite at the end. Today, I ne...

Day 51: Further down the (fat) rabbit hole
In yesterday's post , I highlighted a section from Kessler's The End of Overeating  that touched on the relative emptying rates from the stomach of fat, protein and simple sugar. I admit it, I'm the first guy screaming " Fat satiates !" so color me a little...

Day 49: There are other reasons, you know
I won't belabor this for very long; I simply wanted to point out one of the difficulties facing those that attempt to cut grain out of their lives. The picture above comes from today's local paper. In a nutshell, it is an article about how food manufacturer...

If you want ice cream in Concord and you don't want the traditional chain stores, gotta go here. They have everything from blizzards to sundaes to icees and snow-cones. You order at a window and on the weekends, there will be so many people, the two lines will back up into the parking lot. Not a lot of seating either, so people just hang out by their cars or on the sidewalk eating. It's worth the wait and the lack of seating, too.

Great range of heat for the wings, much hotter varieties available than at BWW. Decor is interesting: lots of race cars hanging above your head. Service can be hit or miss and it gets crowded and loud sometimes.

Not the flashiest place but has to be the most authentic Mexican restaurant around. You will find plenty of menu options not found at most place, i.e. sope. Highly recommend.
