Re: My Paleo Diet Blog

Also, I think you're missing the point on some level. Whether or not saturated fat raises cholesterol levels is irrelevant because cholesterol levels have no link to heart disease. Not exactly - abnormal cholesterol levels are an indicator of damage. The issue is that what's normal is different fro...

Re: My Paleo Diet Blog

I'm curious about something, though. For all the people who are either already doing or looking into trying the paleo thing: have you read any of the books on the subject, and if so, which ones? Books: The Paleo Diet - the first one I read, a little outdated now The Primal Blueprint - the most acce...

Re: My Paleo Diet Blog

I try not to push it too hard on the "grain alternatives" just because I know they slow down my weight loss and keep the taste for carbs stronger, but it's tough with a pregnant, non-paleo wife who just wants her PBJ sometimes. So I'm finding ways to at least try to keep her gluten-free and low-ish...

Truth. I've found when I miss anything with grains, it's not the taste, but the texture - usually crispyness. That's one thing I haven't really been able to replicate.

Re: My Paleo Diet Blog

For anyone contemplating the switch, I strongly suggest going cold turkey. Trying to "ease in" just makes it so much easier to slip up. Once you commit and make the plunge, you (well, I did at least, and others seem to have as well) stop craving things like bread. After a week or two, bread just bec...

I'm not really feeling the love for any of the major gun companies that sell here in MA, due to reasons that would probably violate the "no politics" rule here.

Re: New Acquisitions

Can't speak to loss of power, as I lack proper equipment to measure such things. I imagine there would be some.

As for recoil, I can say with certainty the felt recoil of +p+ out of the GP-100 was less than the felt recoil of regular .38s out of the 6" Taurus. The GP is a heavy gun!

Re: First time CCW

My bad on the wrong forum, I thought I had seen such stories in here before. As to CCW, only DC and Illinois are no-issue. As such, they would be the only places exempt from HR 822 if it passes the senate. Which is annoying, as my parents live in the District. MA depends heavily on what town you liv...

Re: First time CCW

Yea, MA in general is...not fond of people being armed. One of the reasons why I was super nervous at first. Also, I went to the gun shop today and settled on a S&W 442 J-frame as a pocket carry. I want to try carrying a BUG, just for kicks.

I carried for the first time the other day, a 4 1/4 inch full frame 1911 IWB at the 4 o'clock position. I made it through all of the following without raising any suspicion: 1) Shopped at Dick's and Trader Joe's, including reaching above my head to get items on the top shelf. 2) Saw old friends of m...

"Saving lives" in the field

I've been an EMT for about 5 years now, starting when I was a freshman in college and now working for a private ambulance company and on-call fire department. People often say things about EMT's saving lives, and I usually counter with "we don't really save lives, we just postpone death." Most 911s ...

Greetings from Western MA

Hello all,

Long-time lurker finally crawling out of the woodwork - never had much to say before.

I'm a Southern transplant working as an EMT in the Springfield area. Good times all around.

Except for the October snowstorm. That was wrong.
