    Hi Antonis, I'm experimenting with pure baobab oil now, which I put just a small amount of on my face and neck in the evening and then I mist my MB mixture of 1/2 cup of distilled water to 6 drops of MB on my face and gently massage it into my face and neck.

    I'm no longer using the coconut oil or the jasmine when I am out in the sun, just the MB mist that I make. I don't want anything on my skin that will prevent me from harvesting the sun.

    My suggestion for making your own CO, Jasmine and MB is to start with 1/2 cup of the CO, use about 6 or 7 drops of the MB and gradually add the jasmine oil drops to see how you like the scent. :) I like to use it after I shower in the summer, when I am done with sun exposure for the day and it won't hinder my sun harvest. I don't use CO for anything in the fall and winter though, because I am in Michigan and that's a mismatch for me.

    Also, Jack recently mentioned absorbing oil through the skin and how it can be a problem with weight issues, too much fat absorbtion. So, I suggest that anyone with weight issues to use caution here.

    Hey, thank you so much!! How to you massage the 1/2 cup of water with MB on your face. Do you use
    the whole mixture every time you do it?

    Just got my morning sunrise and CT. Stood outside without a jacket, hat, or gloves gazing toward the sun in -25 C (-13 F) for 15 mins.

    How's that for starting my day? Canadian winter FTW!

    Wow it's been a while! My winter went well and I feel like I'm coming out of hibernation now. I had added carbs back into my diet a little bit earlier this month, but have not been consistent, and kind of flip-flopped back and forth from high carb to low carb, and have now been experiencing some massive headaches. I think my meal timing has been suboptimal especially transitioning into the spring where the UVI has now reached 6 and I've been basking nude in the sun for hours on end.

    Typically I fast until about noon where I have a seafood meal with nuts and dark chocolate, then my big dinner around 5 PM which has some carbs.

    I think I may have thrown my body for a loop, so I have a new plan:
    -Eat a moderate protein/fat, high sugar breakfast within 30 mins of rising (i.e. some fruit, honey, etc)
    -Fast throughout the day and get as much AM sun as possible
    -Eat a high protein/fat, low carb dinner at 5 PM

    I'm hoping this will help mitigate the headaches. I think my brain needs a good glucose dump in the early AM, and less carbs later in the day to now transition into summer. Another thought about this was my recent T panel:

    LH: 0.9 IU/L (1.0-9.0)
    FSH: 3.9 IU/L (1.0-19.0)
    Estradiol: 39 pmol/L (40-160)
    Testosterone Total: 11.6 nmol/L (6.1-27.1)
    Testosterone Free: 171 pmol/L (110-660)
    Testosterone Bioavailable: 4.0 nmol/L (2.8-15.5)
    SHBG: 52 nmol/L (13-89)

    These numbers definitely show me I'm still in the cold-adapted winter mode, and I think now that I'm basking in stronger UV, and the days are getting quite long, I believe I need more glucose to drive the GnRH pulses to release more testosterone.

    I wonder if not eating enough carbs in the summer (i.e. the 24/7 keto whores) end up with leptin resistance on the other end of the spectrum? A lot of athletes who overtrain and undereat end up with hypogonadism and hypothyroidism and even adrenal fatigue (mind you most of them are blue light toxic and live around a lot of nnEMF).

    My last experiment with adding significant quantities of glucose back to my diet was that my T levels rose substantially as did LH, and my SHBG levels dropped. I think those results are the bodies normal response to a summertime environment on a higher carb template.

    Thoughts anyone? I moreso want these headaches to go away. My theory is a lack of dietary glucose.

    I just think if you were in equator you would eat fruits and being connected to the nature. So I guess what you are about to do with the available source of sugar there is wise. I believe as summer is coming there nature provides the sugars intentionally.

    Ya, I think the program is changing. All my research pre-Jack Kruse was very mixed: keto/low carb and fasting had benefits, but a lack of sugar could cause fertility issues and adrenal fatigue (i.e. leptin resistance). What the research was missing was that each diet only has benefits in the RIGHT environment.

    I think eating keto 24/7 on blue light and nnEMF could be somewhat comparable to eating keto 24/7 in strong sunlight and long light cycles. It's a mismatch, and we do need some carbs in long light cycles (NATURAL of course) and higher UV.

    Most of the wild honey is contaminated with pesticides and glyphosate. Theres only one brand I know of at the moment who tests for pesticide residue. Beekeepers naturals.

    Maybe maple syrup is the better choice. although they are both D-Bombs I imagine.

    Good to know. I love honey on toast lol...

    Perfect. I stocked up on a big bottle of natural maple syrup, so maybe I'll do French toast for breakfast. I need the D bombs now I believe.

    Here's an interesting paper on how hyperglycemia/metabolic syndrome/leptin resistance can induce secondary hypogonadism:

    https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3893744

    That would likely be one end of the spectrum. The other end of the spectrum would be anorexia:

    https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3200238

    A cold adapted mammal would likely appear to display similar blood levels on paper as an anorexic, but due to the effect of cold on receptors, no ill effects would be experienced. Maintenance of function, muscle mass, body composition, hunger, etc would be controlled appropriately.

    More thoughts:

    If the sunlight frequencies are getting stronger through my eye and SCN, I would assume I need to slow light down more to create hormones in the brain (i.e. GnRH, LH, FSH). That's probably where deuterium comes into play, meaning more glucose will be helpful as the solar power increases in my environment.
