Re: going on 1500 calories a day is for the birds!

My nutritionist wants me on 1500 calories a day. I have the eating plan and the knowledge, even the motivation. But it is hard, damn hard. She says do my best as often as I can, and to track my eating patterns in writing. I now have arthritis in my feet, walking becomes painful at random times. I'm...

Re: Deodorant!

I was a virgin at this year's burn, and I didn't find smell a problem at all whatsoever, but that's probably got a lot to do with the fact that I stayed at the Poly Paradise camp, which is blessed with gifting to the masses the Human Carcass Wash! What a joy it is to have an assembly line of people ...

Re: Any diabetic burners out there?

@GreyCoyote, oops, I just saw your excellent (of COURSE!) input! We definitely must join forces! Right now, ToMmy tells me that Scotto is open perhaps to the idea of me setting up something adjacent to Poly Paradise. That would make sense particularly for the gifting of vinegar foot baths, given tha...

Re: What worked - what didnt

Hello, Food Burners, from a recovering Virgin! Nice to meet you! Lovely thread! Great tips. Lots of food that a low-carber can't eat, but plenty of ideas for de-carbohydratification, as well. OK. So. What worked from the perspective of a Virgin Burner, Type 1 diabetic, very low-carb eater: 1. heavy ...

Re: Any diabetic burners out there?

GreyCoyote, absolutely fabulous post, replete. Just a few thoughts from a pumper coming back from her first (stupendous!) burn: 1. basal rates should not be universally adjusted downward. I got a lot of exercise walking, dancing and biking, but it was nowhere what I get in Defaultia. Your mileage ma...

Re: Diabetics on the Playa

hello, diabetic burners and friends of diabetic burners and wanna-be burners and theoretical friends of theoretical diabetic burners! So, here's some input from a Type 1 diabetic who returned a week ago from her first, magnificent burn (that would be me). 1. Cooling your insulin: Keep it refrigerate...

Re: Hello and Welcome... What's your name? Tell me about You

Hello, Burners, from a newly deflowered virgin Burner! What a Burn. What an epic, epic Burn. I don't know where to start when it comes to thanking all the people who made it such a memorable slice of my life: Everybody at Poly Paradise, my guardian angel TomMy, greeters, artists, people who just sho...

LOST: TomTom GPS

It's ironic, to lose a GPS, don't you think? It misses me. I can feel its little GPS wireless tendrils searching for me. TomTom VIA 1605TM Serial No. WN6283K01532 It was a large one, with a screen of about 5". It could have been crushed under the weight of thousands of Burner cars by now... poor lit...
