FINALLY got up to 130lbs! Been binge eating my coconut flat bread, cheese sauces, coconut, hemp seeds, almonds, and most recently GROUND COCOA NIBS, I found roasted cocoa nibs online in 1.5lb bags for $23. I been eating about 1/2 cup a meal blending in shakes, icecream, sprinkle toppings etc. I love how the different roast and sources of the beans gives different flavors and find the combinations quite fun. I also took a tip from a body builder buddy and got some ketones and potassium and started taking them along with 7 digestive enzyme tablets before a meal (serving size is 3). Results were I put on almost a full 3lbs in a week after years of trying to bulk up. This is fantastic. seems to be muscle to boot.

Now that my health is up, I feel more like doing stuff, just wish business would pick up with the bakery and the almond butter sales.

I always laugh when people say they're going gluten free to lose weight.

HA! tell that to the +10lbs I lost in a month before going gluten-free. Of course, last winter I went a little too far the other way, so when I lost 10lb fairly quickly this spring, I was relieved that my vitamin levels were all still good. It's stayed put for the past while, which is good.

Anyway, great to hear you have your energy back! (cocoa nibs are highly deceptive little suckers)
