Keto results: breaking the habits of a lifetime

It's a known (and frequently lamented) fact that everything tastes better with butter on it. And when I say 'butter', I mean the proper full fat, grass fed, lightly salted and preferably Irish kind that comes in the foil packs - not that manky shite that comes in the plastic tubs with pictures of olives...

Ready-meals and poo-mergencies

So I've been on the Keto kick for 2 weeks now and am due a weigh-in. The tape-measure tells me i've lost six centimetres from around my waist, and precisely fuck-all from around my ass, and I'm slightly concerned i'm going to end up looking a bit like Kimmy K on a bad day.

And then there's all that rubber … ! Anyway, between the beautiful beach, the good food, the awesome diving... Continue Reading →

Bangkok Women Really Are Fellas

I've been wanting to learn SCUBA since before I was old enough. Somehow i've managed to put it off for about twenty years, and now i'm very excited. The plan (as much as there is one - it's Mozambique after all!), is to spend the first day blasting our way through all the theory (5... Continue Reading →
