Week 1, Day 4

Thursday, December 23rd 2010

My weight was down to 183.75--not bad since I had a martini and an enormous rib eye steak for dinner! Although I went a bit overboard last night, I feel good this a.m., not bloated or yucky the way I sometimes do if I eat a boat load of potatoes, pasta, etc. One thing I did note is that liquor (gin) doesn't seem to spike my appetite the way wine does which is a good thing from a personal preference standpoint. Though I like wine, it is not generally my tipple of choice.

Looking at the pa...

Week 1, Day 3

Wednesday, December 22nd 2010

Wednesday, day 3. Weight = 185 1/4, but that was for my record-setting BM. Wow, I got to say that this diet certainly seems to promote regularity.

Breakfast was enormous! I need to start cooking less, because my stomach just won't hold that much. And just to think: I like big meals.

As a note, the fried (not stir-fried) bean sprouts were pretty good. I think I could manipulate this idea into a substitute for hash-browns.

Week 1, Day 2

Tuesday, December 21st 2010

So far this has been a most interesting diet. My weight is still up a bit from Sunday and yesterday, but it's down to 186 so it's moving in the right way and I expect it will go down even more by tomorrow.

Monday was educational, even if it wasn't a perfect eating day. As allowed, I had a glass of red wine after dinner. Well, the next thing I knew, I was HUNGRY. So, since this is a trial run before things get serious after the New Year, I ate about an extra 600 calories. However, I ate...

Week 1, Day 1

Monday, December 20th 2010

Today has been actually pretty easy so far. The meals are a little boring, but I think that's part of the trick. Nonetheless, I have felt pretty satisfied and NOT hungry. For breakfast I had eggs and beans w/ some left-over broccoli; lunch was tuna and beans and bean sprouts with some avocado. For dinner I'm going to make chili w/ beans (go figure) and onion. After dinner I'm going to have a glass of wine before bedtime and sit in front of the fire.

Yesterday was a "refeed" d...

4-Hour Body Trial Run

Sunday, December 19th 2010

I love new diets!!! And this one is kinda new, so I'm going to take it for a trial run. I have to admit I like the idea of a "minimal exercise" diet. It's not that I don't like exercise, because I do; however, extended sessions in the gym just take too much time. The exercise sessions can all be done in fits and starts and generally take 35 minutes or less 2-3 times per week.

Rules for 6 days per week:
>>Eat within 30 minutes of getting up
>>No "white&q...
