What is Sugar Free and Keto Friendly at Dairy Queen?

This week we are looking at the tasty goodness that is Dairy Queen in our What is Sugar Free and Keto Friendly at Restaurants series.  I grew in up in a town that had a Dairy Queen next door to a Dairy Twin and had a Dairy King a little farther down the road.  My mom would go to Dairy Twin for drinks because they had Vanilla Diet Coke and then Dairy Queen for food.  Dipping the Texas Toast in the cream gravy was what 10 year old me thought was the very height of fine cuisine.

As with most of these fast food restaurant lists, you are going to have to order ingredients.  There are some good options when it comes to salad but all the dressings have PUFAs so you will be eating them dry.  Or salt, pepper and mustard.  I don’t judge.  You do you.

You can find the Dairy Queen website here and the menu here.  Do you have a restaurant you want me to cover?  Tell me in the comments!

6/20 Weightloss Wednesday: Stuart McGill’s Big 3 Back Exercises

It’s time for Weightloss Wednesday!  As of this morning I am at 228.6 lb which means I have been within 2 lbs of the same weight for a month now which is very disappointing.  I have been eating either 1 or 2 meals a day for a long time now and it has stubbornly refused to move.  I’m remembering all the times during that long trek down to 200 that it seemed like nothing happened for weeks on end to keep me centered.

As for exercise, I’ve had to take a few days off.  I’ve got a pain in the back of my heel that I’m hoping is nothing and will go away if I rest for a few days.  The pain is right where there is a big lump on the back of my heel.  I think whatever I did to it, I did while jumping rope a few weeks ago and I just needed to stay off it for a while.  At least, that’s what I hope is going on and noting more serious is happening.

In the video, I’m continuing to look at at the exercises I do.  Today I am showing the back exercises I do.  These are Stuart McGill’s Big 3 exercises that he advocates in his book.  (I interviewed him here and reviewed his book here)  I have done them religiously for months now and have not had any back issues which had plagued me for years.  I would encourage you to do the same if you have any back problems or want to prevent them.

How did you do this week?  Let me know in the comments!

This Week in Low Carb News: NuSI is Back and the Mediterranean Diet Isn’t

Every week I come across a bunch of articles I want to tweet about and comment on and every week I run out of time to do it.  This is my attempt to clear out the open tabs on my browser by putting them all in one place.  Enjoy!

The Collapse of a $40 Million Dietary Crusade – I was so hopeful for NuSI when it was announced so I was disappointed when it seemed to implode.  I am glad to see that they at least hav eplans to continue in some way.

6 Month Carnivore Update – I’ve talked before about my admiration for Jordan Peterson.  I think he is one of the best thinkers on the planet and was excited to learn that both him and his daughter are carnivores.  The changes this way of eating have had on them are nothing short of miraculous.

Working Americans Consume More Junk Food at Work – Lunch is a surprisingly common roadblock for people trying to change their diet.  Most people can eat breakfast and dinner at home but lunch is tricky because you are away from your kitchen.

Alzheimer’s Disease: Why Insulin is a New Suspect – Doctors have been calling Alzheimer’s Type 3 Diabetes for years so I’m glad the idea is spreading.

Errors Trigger Retraction Of Study On Mediterranean Diet’s Heart Benefits – Anyone talking about the benefits of the Mediterranean diet is referring to this study and now it’s retracted.

What Evidence can We Trust?

What I learnt …or rather was reminded of at the #ketocon was that fasting is not consuming ANY CALORIES, so it is basically achieved by drinking water (unless u do dry fasting)… so no bulletproof coffees etc… if u want to reap the benefits of fasting, just drink water and add a bit of salt so u dont get dehydrated…no cutting corners y'all! ALSO, if u want to know how to get yourself trained for extended fasting cycles, stay tuned – I'll post a thing or few about it soon.. #under20carbs #keto #ketogenic #carbfree #lowcarb #lowcarbdiet #fitnesspal #dieting #highfatlowcarb #highfatdiet #needmotivation #loseweịght #CF #lchf #ketolifestyle #primal #Atkins #fitness #ketotips #ketoporn #ketosis #crossfit #healthyliving #intermittentfasting #cancerwarrior #cancerawareness #fightcancerwithketo #ketolife #bulletproofdiet
