#Carbexit – Week 2 (The Eggpire Strikes Back)

It’s week two and time for an update. How’s it all going? The running is going well and the gym hasn’t hit me back – yet! It’s been easy to stick to low carb with only one little relapse.

 

 

 

 

Conventional wisdom says breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and I suspect that’s true for the majority of people. I’ve found that breakfast is great for me but lunch is a problem.

 

 

 


(Coffee is never a problem)

 

 

Working at Partridge Street General Practice, I have all types of tasty foods available to me on Jetty Road Glenelg. The problem is so many choices mean too many opportunities to overeat and too many poor (but delicious) food choices after a busy morning. I had a think and this is what I came up with.

 

 

 

 

 

Eggsactly. I will have breakfast at lunch and reduce my poor food choices. It’ll also reduce the running around at lunch wondering what to eat. I should be feeling great with loads of morning energy for when I’m back at work next week.

See you next week with more improvements to come! If you liked this, go back and revisit Week 1, or even say hi here!

Carbexit

Leaner, fitter, stronger, faster, and healthier. Low carb promises all of this and more. Does it deliver? Let’s see!

Take one willing subject. 


Premedicate with some exercise


Get some specialist advice


Add some incentive. 


(Some carbs were harmed in the making of this photo)

And set a target to beat – 53.30 for 12kms (2009)

Then get moving!

Update next week!

In the meantime, I’ll be working hard at Partridge Street General Practice

5 Things about Winter Colds

 

 

Winter is Coming! Everyone has a sniffle and they all want to give it to you. Why?

 

 

 

  • Colds are more likely in Winter. The cold temperature seems to affect your immune system, making it more likely that you’ll suffer more viruses you might otherwise brush off.

 

  • That snotty cough doesn’t always require antibiotics! Read more here.

 

 

  • Have you had your flu shot yet? It’s especially recommended for those at risk. Check with our practice nurses here.

 

 

 

  • Viruses can be spread by fomites (objects or materials which are likely to carry infection, such as clothes, utensils, and furniture) and direct contact…disinfect your hands, cover your mouth when coughing, and stay away from work if you’re unwell.

 

  • See your GP if you need to. If you’re feeling more unwell than you think you should, if you’re not getting better, or if you’re worried, the Good GP is here to help.

 

 

Get well soon or better still, don’t get unwell in the first place! How can you get healthier? Come in and find out…

dr who?

The grumpy ex-surgeon with no communications skills who hates people and is in General Practice because they couldn’t do something else. Not at Partridge Street General Practice

Every doctor here is a proud Fellow of the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners or studying hard to become one. All of this is so we can help you get better, better. 

Come and say hi – we promise not to be grumpy!

PS: 

There’s a new Doctor at Partridge Street General Practice!

Why do we have a Gap?

 

The Election Campaigns are still going and all sides of politics are talking about your Healthcare.

 

 

Bulk Billing.

 

 

Medicare.

 

 

It’s important to us at Partridge Street General Practice that our valued patients know why we charge a gap fee.

 

 

Here’s a video by the excellent Dr Edwin Kruys that sums it up.

 

 

 

If you still have questions, come and say hi!

 

 

GET A GREAT GP!
