I see, never thought about it that way before, i have noticed that while benching my right hand doing most of the effort. Nah, guilty as charged just bodyweight and cardio for me lately.
Haha!

I find that body-weight workouts don’t give me the look I’m aiming for, but I do resort to them if circumstance dictates.

Yeah i tend to crash sooner than i used to, unfortunately my profession often demands attention while being mostly sedentary and appearing tired is looked down upon.

I think before i try anything, i might use the break given by recent events to try to reset and reduce my dependence on caffeine and get more sleep.
Very wise.. I’m using this time to refine my diet and step-up my training, so as to achieve optimal health.. which I haven’t had these last few years, and once you know what that feels like, you don’t stop until you have clawed your way back to it.. well I do anyway.. it is My drug.

Perhaps this doesn't qualify as 'food', but I am now a week in having fasted, no 'food' - just water. I take bone broth if I want it every couple days, I also take electrolytes, and I take Taurine and B complex vitamins and Vitamin C. Taurine reduces the risk of gallstones, by de-cholesterolizing the gallbladder when fat's being burned causes the body to deposit cholesterol there. Also apparently helps direct hydration and burn 16 percent more fat. Bone broth is to get some calcium, electrolytes, vitamins, and collagen repairs gut issues.

Right now have my ears/eyes open for multivitamin to extend my fast. I plan 30 days or 60. I need to reach my goal weight by/before the end of the year.

As for gall stones, the risk factors are: being blonde, female, overweight and another one I don't remember. Looking in your own family tree also gives an idea how likely it is you have or are going to get gallstones.
The theory I've heard about what you can do to lower the risk of getting gallstones (besides changing your genetics) is to have a rather constant, not quickly changing, diet of fat. In particular you shouldn't reduce your fat intake and go on a diet with zero fat without a phase of slow adjustment (3 weeks).

Your body is controlling its own production of bile and also its own production of cholesterol. If you eat a lot of fat and cholesterol then your body is producing a lot of bile and has its own cholesterol production lowered because you are getting enough through your diet. If you then cut your fat intake drastically your body will not adjust to this from one day to the next, so it will produce too much bile for a while and your cholesterol will be lowered because it needs to ramp up its own production because it's missing from your diet. This increased production of bile will be stored in the gallbladder where it can lead to the formation of gallstones because the bile just sits there and isn't sufficiently used and renewed.

I find that (chicken-)bone broth is very good for the digestion if you find that you lack in bile. That's not just about fat digestion, it also ties into how your liver deals with breaking up toxins and the immune system.

Yeah, that slow adjustment is really needed - fat adaptation (referred to), after 3 weeks no-carbs I stopped being hungry all the time

I'm breaking my fast right now since I have brain fog and cannot concentrate on things I want to. I'll just be doing adequate protein + no carb + low fat diet. Hopefully hunger doesn't kill that. I need the energy to do projects outside work. I had an 8-9 day run of it, so I have an idea of what it's like.

My diet is now Ground Beef and Broccoli. Eggs if I am at all caring for them. Heavily seasoned. And then mayo and tuna, or Oysters smoked. Beef alone is not good for the ghrelin hunger response, which detects an empty-er stomach. Broccoli has no/little calories, a lot of fiber. I add nutritional yeast if I feel like it. I also take electrolytes supplements.

I have kept this up for a week without feeling super depleted like I did when fasting (did that 10 days).

The only reason I am eating broccoli is to stave off the annoying hunger response without adding any more calories (so I still burn body fat). It's been about 4 weeks now I have been below 20g carbs a day. I think in 8 weeks I will feel great, my body fat adapted

Am currently doing body-weight exercises and giving weights a rest.. to be re-visited a few months from now.

I would say that my diet is currently 95% clean.. the remaining 5% not giving any cause for alarm, and is a necessary window of culinary-pleasure opportunity.

Coke, right...

I don't know what regions are affected by this but at least in some parts of continental Europe Coca-Cola has changed its recipe. I'm not the only one who has noticed this change, it now tastes like a different kind of sweetness with some bad aftertaste. If I had to guess then I'd say it's some artificial sweetener that has been added to the standard recipe. I looked at the label but I didn't see anything out of the ordinary. Although from what I gather not all ingredients have to be listed on the label or at least they aren't listed.
