I enjoy history and true crime. Plenty of those podcasts out there to keep my mind stimulated.

Jamie mentioned he enjoys True Crime Podcasts. Said he searched for a while to find the right series and voice actors. I'm sure he'd be happy to share!

"Casefile" is my favorite. I've listened to all of them already. SKB (serial killer brain) is good too. Just not many episodes of that available though. Started listening to Obscura recently. I like the ones that dont try to be humorous.

PackRat thank you so much for those incredibly useful tips cause I was kind of wondering what I should be buying. Okay so with that knowledge, what kind of utensils and trucker appliances should I look for to cook, grill or bake while driving?

This is what I use. https://hotlogicmini.com

The mini 6 x 9 is big enough for my meals. You can get the Pyrex dish or use plastic dishes. I have brought my food with me and cooked from scratch. I prefer to cook at home, freeze and then reheat on the road. It requires an inverter to plug in.

When I get back on the road (been sidelined for the past month due to having AFib), I will pick up the large Coleman cooler. Between the company's fridge and the cooler, I should be able to bring 2 weeks worth of one main meal per day with me, along with some fruit and raw milk.

Stay away from the carbs! Like the others have stated, NO CARBS! If you are going to see the doctor, have them test your thyroid. But, if you are generally healthy, like everyone has stated, this is more than likely diet related. Look up Butter Makes Your Pants Fall Off on YouTube. Butter Bob, he gives a good rundown on weight loss, cutting carbs and fasting. He is not a doctor, but his advice is sound and I believe will help you with sound information.

I don't know your shopping habits, but if you go to say Walmart, only shop the outer aisles, stay out of the snacks, canned goods, bakery and soda sections. I can cook in my truck, there are many options if you have an inverter installed, along with some 12 volt options. I eat a lot of eggs, cheese and meat, I like my steaks. And yes, I have regular blood work, my cholesterol and BP are fine, in fact the numbers even surprise my doctors, both my primary and my VA doctor. Exercise is my big issue, especially in the winter.

Do that, change the diet. If you need a snack going down the road, get a big bag of almonds, they will fill you up quickly and hold those hunger pains back. Just don't eat too many, only takes around twenty, twenty almonds, not handfuls, to fill me up.

Hey yall, missed you all. I found put last night that with good rest and drinking more water with good pch levels, helped me tremendously. I was able to drive 9.35 hours. I was told that I needed to do more night driving or safety would put me out with another trainer for another 100 hours. Go figure lol. Well I did 5.11 hours the first night and 9.35 the second night. I ended today at 12:54pm. Im happy to see improvements. I only have 2 more days of driving to complete training and only 2.5 hours left minimum to be able to be released and graduate. The prayers have really been a big help in time of need. Thank you all for your advice and I will be working those suggestions into my daily life as a trucker. See yall sooner than before! thank-you.gif

Yeah it is really crazy how quick after I saw that I only had 80 hours left, how quick they fell. Now I am at 10 something hours left. Im happy this is finally looking up. Sticking it out has taught me a lot about discipline and perseverance for the end goal. Thank you all for your encouragement!
