A Successful Targeted Ketogenic Diet Experiment

BosnanThis is a guest post written by Bosona who I met through one of the reddit/keto threads where he shared the findings of his own n=1 experiment using a targeted ketogenic diet (TKD), with great results.  I asked him if he was willing to write a guest post for this site describing his experiment in more detail and he kindly agreed.

I think it’s useful for folks who visit to see that not all experiments with variants of ketogenic diets end up with crazy lab numbers

I was also interested to hear more of his story for a very selfish reason:  since I’m also in the midst of my own experiment using a variation of the targeted ketogenic diet approach, John Kiefer’s Carb Back-Loading, his results may shed some light on how things turn out for me.Read More

BJJ Rank Cloud T-Shirt

Ranked Gear

Wanted to plug a cool T-shirt I came across from Ranked Gear, run by Jason ScullyHere was his premise for these shirts:

I asked hundreds of BJJ players of all ranks what 5 SINGULAR WORDS best describes what it is like to be and experience EACH Brazilian Jiu Jitsu rank. These are all emotions, feelings, and experiences from BJJ practitioners around the world.

Then I collected each word that pertained to each rank and I created Rank Word Clouds that create the rank that each word represent.

Interview with the BJJ Caveman on the Fat2FitHQ Podcast

fat2fithqInterview with the BJJ Caveman on the Fat2FitHQ Podcast

I was recently asked to be a guest on the Fat2FitHQ podcast (or if you want to listen to it directly on iTunes you can check it out here), which was a pleasant surprise since I had never been interviewed before… except for jobs of course.  I have to admit that I was a little nervous, especially since this podcast was at one point ranked #7 in the iTunes Outdoor category.

I’m glad I did it.  It was a fun experience and I had a blast.… Read More

Training with Renato Babalu Sobral Before Metamoris

Babalu 3I showed up at Babalu’s Iron Gym for one of their open mats a little over a week before the Metamoris 3 event in which he’s scheduled to fight Dean Lister, and I was lucky enough to have had the chance to roll with him again.

Compared to before, he’s really trimmed down.  When I last trained with him he had retired from MMA for a couple of months already and looked like he put on some weight.  This time he was trim and looked like he was in fantastic shape.… Read More

Metamoris 3

Getting pretty excited for the upcoming Metamoris 3 on March 29.  It’s the 3rd iteration of the Ralek Gracie run submission only Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu event.  The main draw of the event are a series of super-fights between hand selected BJJ practitioners.  As opposed to typical BJJ tournaments that can incentivize stalling after gaining a point or advantage, there are no advantages and no points.  The only outcomes are submission or draw with a 20 minute time limit.  They also award cash prizes for submissions to further incentivize an attack mentality.… Read More
