      Hopefully it will be done soon, and it will be similar to our Podcast.

      Thanks and hope you are avoiding Sandy as well (I am stuck in a hotel in Boston…)!

    Great podcast as always. Is there any way in the coming podcasts that you could elaborate on the tracking portion (regarding what you are eating). My question is, I totally understand why its good to track, but how do I know if what I am eating is within the appropriate calories and proportions – if weight loss is the goal. I am not hugely overweight (138 at 5’3) but I am trying to lean out in a sustainable way, and would definitely appreciate any advice on how to determine the appropriate caloric intake to get me down this path. I am sure Roger has a formula for his transformers, if a person is following and practicing the diet and lifestyle you promote, what is the best way to determine a good formula for weight loss.

      Hi Beth,

      We don’t ever count calories. I taper my carbs up and down based on whether I am trying to lose fat (carbs closer to or below 50) or not (between 50 and 100-150). Tracking calories is impossible, frustrating, and a waste of time. I also eat until I am full, which is much more doable when hunger-promoting carb sources are minimized. I hope this helps.

      Take care,

    Dammit! I love crispy bacon. There is a fine line, though, between tasty crispy bacon and burnt bacon. Cooking it slower will probably make it easier to grab it after it’s crispy and before it starts to burn.

      I do too!

    The natural source of nitrates/nitrites for bacon/sausage/jerky is salt peter. Thought this info might help your research on the topic of possible health benefits. Saltpeter used to be a remedy for asthma and hypertension. Also used in gun powder and rocket fuel, lol.
