3.0 out of 5 stars Decent keyring, 11 July 2014
A nice feeling keyring, decent size & feel. The only slight let down is the Jaguar emblem sticker is perhaps lower quality than I would expect for the price.

5.0 out of 5 stars My Album of the moment ....., 18 Oct 2013

Well they certainly sit on the heavier side of the rock spectrum, but with melody and rhythm they can deliver awesome punch and drive to music. A great album with the studio recording and the extra live disc is also excellent with both growing on me even more with each listen (which is often). Glad I discovered this band by way of Amazon's recommendations.....

Well I have move to a ketogenic diet and these allow me to measure my ketone level. Assuming they are accurate then I'm perfectly happy. Easy to use and read against the scale on the bottle.

Well despite the alleged abilities - I found it made little difference. Won't buy it again as it doesn't seem to do much.


The Art and Science of Low Carbohydrate Performance

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book, 2 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very pleased I bought this book - as it goes in to a good amount of detail, but keeps things relatively simple overall.

I like the fact that it gives tips on how to tweak your diet depending on symptoms (i.e. cramps / lethargy) as i had suffered a little with these aspects.

A very brief outline of what's allowed on a ketogenic diet - I would prefer more explanation and detail - but it's OK. Much is covered in other books on this subject.

Well having moved to a ketogenic diet - a book recommended that Slow Mag would be beneficial - so thought I'd try this version of slow release magnesium. Seems to work - I've not tried the more expensive option - but no real need to yet.


Why We Get Fat: And What to Do about It (Vintage)
Why We Get Fat: And What to Do about It (Vintage)
by Gary Taubes
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Is this finally the answer to losing weight comfortably?!, 26 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've previously pondered the subject of this book - thinking that there must be more to it than the more traditional advice we are given about fat loss. If it were as 'simple' as calories-in Vs Calories-out then how come so many struggle with it? This book covers most of the questions I had wondered about and gives answers ... but more importantly for me, it gives the answer as to what to do about it. Something different to 'you are failing because you are too weak willed and not good enough at calorie counting, or doing enough exercise.'

Some of the writing is a little technical, but generally not too bad - so I got through the book in only a few days (unusual for me).

The ultimate test is that having read it - and applying this methodology of what to eat, I have already lost weight. 4 lbs in week one and almost at the end of week 2 .... I'm sure more has come off but am waiting until the week is done to weigh myself. My clothes are looser still .... so happy with the way things are headed.

I've not gone hungry and still managed my twice weekly mountain biking, without any huge energy issue (having cut out carbs).

I am very interested to see if this book gains wider knowledge over time, to then change the usual advice given to those wishing to lose weight, since it appears we have all been told the wrong information for too long,

Gary Taubes also has some useful lectures on-line covering some of this material.

I'm now reading - The art & science of low carbohydrate performance - to see if it gives further refinements of what to eat to allow my mountain biking to further improve - but it seems this way of eating will actually provide athletes with MORE useable energy stores, than the traditional carb-loading option.

So - very happy to have discovered this book and it's recommended plan.
