August Update

It has been a long while since I have posted anything. Well, I’ve been busy. I started new jobs. I moved my day job to Black & Veatch, and I adding motorcycle safety instructor. I am currently an apprentice with Team Oregon. So, very busy.

I haven’t posted video in a while. I got frustrated with the limitations of my free video editing software. I did some research and found there are a lot of good editors all for about the same price, and I chose Corel VideoStudio. Below is my first video with that software.

Healthwise, my cancer has been stable for over 10 months now. Good news, but not great. I need those tumors to shrink. I have added ketogenic diet to my life. I know it can be done as a vegan, but it is really hard. I have enough hard things in my life so I am sad to say I am currently not on a vegan diet. I have always been vegan because I feel so much better, but drastic times call for drastic measures.

For those of you who aren’t familiar with a ketogenic diet, it is high fat low carbs. To start carbs should be kept around 20 grams. The goal is 75% fat 25% protein. After achieving ketosis, measured using urine strips, most people can move up to 60-100 grams of carbs a day. It is important to keep the protein low or you will enter neoglucogenesis. This is frustrating because your body can take protein and create glucose. I would prefer to eat fruit for glucose rather than have my body created from protein.

If you want me to talk more about ketogenic diet and/or how much I dislike it, comment below.

Hope you enjoy this video, I’m still learning the software. Comment if you have any VideoStudio advice.
