If you read in the Primal Blueprint, Mark recommends less than 150g and preferably less than 100g of carbs a day. Yesterday, I had about 40 grams of carbs. Your brain uses 35 grams by itself.

Today, My workout partner came over. It's the first weight lifting we've done in a while. I Did other stuff like stairs and the snow man but over the last several weeks but I haven't had a strong commitment to weights since August. I got knocked off kilter by physical therapy. I tried to lift all fall but I was frustrated and just not with it. I finally stopped around December. Today, I started again. I'm heavier now too, so I have some more body tissue to... Go to BodyBlog
