Video support, discussion and more on Google+

hey all

I created a page on Google+ and if you don’t know what Google+ is, don’t worry, I’ll explain 🙂

Google+ is Google’s answer to Facebook or MySpace.  It offers many of the same functions but also a lot more.  First off, many (if not most ) people have a Google Mail or GMail account which means, yup, you’re signed up already for Google+!  Rad!  If you don’t have a GMail account or don’t know how to get one, shoot me an email and I’ll send one of the handy invites I have.  With Google+ or G+ you can subscribe to other’s posts (which includes, images, video, comments, discussion, live chats, etc) in something called a ‘Circle’ like a circle of friends but the cool thing is how circles work.  Say you have some co-workers who you aren’t your FRIENDS but well, co-workers, you can create a circle called, Co-Workers and organize them into an easy to find category.  That way when you post photos of the baseball game you skipped work for you can omit this group 🙂  Personally I have circles of Chefs I like, Friends, Family, Recipe People, Diet People, Health People, Controversial Health People, and on and on.  I find this is a great way to learn what is going on with the people I follow and learn SO much.

I will be using Twitter, Facebook and Google+ from this point on and if you haven’t added me to your friends list, circle or twitter following please feel free to add me.  I would love to interact with you guys more and more.

BTW – G+ has a function called Hangouts which connect I think 12 people via webcam, I would love to set up a support group or chat about low carb in this manner, any takers?

Here are all of my Social Media links – please add me




The fest has come to an end

My Eggfest, Eggfeast, Eggfast – whatever you want to call it is OVER!  Over for the minute anyway.  I had a steak omelet for yesterdays breakfast, a HUGE caesar salad for lunch (chicken, romaine, avocado, parmesan cheese and a lovely SF dressing I made and for dinner was roast chicken and mashed cauliflower.   Can you say mmmmmm?

Eating 90% eggs is such an odd and simple solution if you want to get right into ketosis and level your system, I loved doing it! I can myself doing this twice a year forever but now I will do an extended induction following the basic Atkins Diet plan until I lose all the weight I need to lose.

If you have any questions drop me an email


Oh, what the hell, I can do this for two more days!

I awoke this morning and was preparing eggs for for my wife and I, I had forgotten (at first) that I was going to eat leftover steak and as I scrambled a third egg in a tbs of butter I remembered. Then I saw those fluffy yellow eggs and just decided to continue the Eggfest 2011 for another 2 days and do a complete 14 day egg fast. So my tuesday morning breakfast will be eggs, bacon and possibly a flax roll – that will be my Break EggFast

btw that is decaf coffee with the tiniest bit of heavy cream, no sweetener 🙂

Scrambled eggs are getting to me

I may have hit the wall – I will go back to regular induction beginning tomorrow.  I LOVE eggs but I just need something else lol.  I give credit to Jimmy Moore for doing this for 30 days!  wow!

I have lost a total of 15 lbs in the past 12 days and that is just incredible but I am going to eat some of my wife’s leftover steak for tomorrow’s breakfast. I am calling it quits to my eggfest but I will have one last omelette for tonight’s dinner.

What I have learned from the Eggfest 2011 is that the amount of foods one can eat during Induction is amazingly vast.  I am looking forward to chicken roasted, baked, steamed, grilled and steaks, fish, broccoli, cauliflower, etc etc etc  What an amazing life it is when you can eat these foods for a better healthy life!

Eggfest day 6

Today marks the 6th day of my extreme low carb personal challenge. in the past 3 days I added a little more to the Eggfest but am removing it moving forward. For breakfast a few days ago I made 2 strips of bacon (sugar free), that night I added spinach to an omelet and last night I had a late night salad because I ran out of eggs (bought a dozen this morning and am running to bjs to load up). I feel very loose in my clothes and overall pretty good. I truly love eggs and I am not tired of them but would like to cook something else – lol. I am going to do this for another 7 days and then go into a standard Atkins Induction beginning next Tuesday. I need to drink more water than usual while in this eggfest, perhaps because it puts one directly into ketosis and urine is a great outlet for the ketones. email me if you have any egg recipes or techniques you can pass my way 🙂 I will be poaching eggs tonight.
