Week 1-Day 7

Saturday, March 31st 2012

Saturday and it's day 7 of my experimental diet. I can see I need to make a couple of changes: I need to include some FF yogurt or pudding for snacks; relying entirely on fresh fruit and vegies is simply not practical. First, fresh fruit is not all that portable for class situations; my braces interfere with crunchy vegies.

Today I put some calorie goals in my plan. If I follow this exactly, my calories will total about 1800 calories. I will lose on this if I increase my activity levels...

Week 1-Day 6

Friday, March 30th 2012

Weight this morning: 198 -- back up to where I started the first of this week. But I am not going to stress about this since I sort of overdid yesterday. I suspect I will be down again tomorrow.

I have made a couple of decisions:
(1) I may be on to something with this diet plan. I have been dieting so long that I get angry inside if I cannot have something. So I rebel and tell myself "I'll fix it tomorrow." Of course that works fine if I only indulge once in a while...

Week 1-Day 4

Wednesday, March 28th 2012

Weight this morning: 198 -- nothing lost, but nothing gained. Overall, I would say this is a win since I've only been on this eating plan for a couple of days. In general, I feel good, certainly not deprived. Those time-limited, decadent breakfasts seem to be taking care of the stinkin'thinkin' that goes along with any kind of calorie-controlled diet.

Week 1-Day 3

Tuesday, March 27th 2012

THE RULES
1. Breakfast: eat whatever. Be sure to include some animal protein--beef or chicken or pork or eggs or cheese. Dairy is OK. If I want a steak and baked potato, eat it for breakfast. If I want a gooey sandwich with mayo and all the trimmings, have it for breakfast.
2. Lunch: strict vegan, relatively low fat. Emphasize fresh fruits and vegies. Include seeds and nuts (no more than 2 oz -- measure this ahead of time). High quality bread for sandwiches is OK on busy days.
3. Dinner:...
