I know it’s only been 3 days, but I feel better already - no full or bloated feeling or gas! The best part…I haven’t been hungry.

I went to the doctor today and my blood pressure was 132/78, which is good for me! In my pocket was a baggie of nuts just in case I needed them, but I never got hungry.

This morning we munched on the leftover tenderloin (see below) with a boiled egg, an orange, and a handful of nuts.

I returned home from the doctor around noon and it was time for another handful of nuts, a banana, and some leftover hog jowl! Man it was great.

Tonight we fixed a nice mixed green salad with olives and pecans with some homemade honey, apple cider, and honey dressing, and a juicy strip steak cooked medium well on the grill.

It’s going to work folks! I even have a luncheon date tomorrow at a pizza place and it’ll be blackened chicken salad for me – and yes, I will have two beers. Surely a caveman fell into something fermented occasionally!

Hey, guys, I promise not to preach - just report my progress, which might not last long, but so far I like it.

If you don't eat this way, there's plenty of old fashioned eating in the archives!

congrats to you! sounds like an awesome start. i wish you best of luck in not succumbing to the pizza. i don't think i could pull that one off.

I did pass the test, with the exception of 2 Killians!

I ordered "Hawaiian steak on a stick", mushrooms and onions, and a spinach disk on the side. One brother-in-law, who ordered a chicken sandwich, was actually envious of what I was eating.

It was a great milestone to pass.
