The lovely BJJ Cavewife has been putting up with me while I’ve been doing my n=1 experiments and purchasing all kinds of gadgets and supplements for quite a while now and has been incredibly supportive throughout the entire process, and I’m definitely lucky to have found such an understanding spouse. But she recently said two things that I wanted to write about:
1. While eating dinner with the BJJ Cavewife, I excused myself to go to the restroom, and when I returned she had a huge grin on her face. I asked her what was so funny and she replied while laughing, “Damn!!! Look at that ass!’ This was in reference to my bulbous backside.
I’ve briefly talked my ‘gynoid’ pattern of fat deposition (butt, hips, and thighs) as a reason for checking my testosterone, and for whatever strange reason, after seeing my corpulent caboose every day for the past 10 years, she JUST noticed how big it was.
I responded with some paleo nerd humor, ‘At least it’s 100% grass fed and has a good Omega 3 to Omega 6 ratio, so you better enjoy it.’
Then we both started laughing hysterically.
2. Later on that night she told me that she was tired of seeing my rash all the time which is very understandable since I’ve had it for the past 7 weeks while I’ve been doing the Carb Nite experiment! So to be fair to her in order to at least remain somewhat attractive to my betrothed (despite my robust rear), I better do what I can to disappear the prurigo pigmentosa rash.
Since I don’t think I’m quite ready to go the antibiotic rout, I think I’ll play around with adding a second Carb Nite to my schedule to see how that affects things. The two heavy doses of insulin in the week should theoretically make the prurigo pigmentosa rash go away completely.
