MORE THAN ONE COMMENTED ON MY SVELTNESS THIS MORNING. I'm trying another kooky diet, slight inspired by MikeyG and a Tim Ferriss podcast: only fruit till Noon every day... I add a few handfuls of nuts if I'm not satiated.
That's in addition to my other whacky breakthrough for lunch: El Pollo Loco Leg Lovers - 3 legs, salad and broccoli... this takes a while to eat, and leaves me feeling full for about 30 minutes. Weird. So I supplement that largely with carrots and celery with peanut butter.
Then there's dinner: lots of vegetables.
Oh, and sardines are in there 3-5 days a week for added protein.
You might think the same as my brother when I told him of my latest adventures in food:
Bro, sounds like you're just hungry all the time...
... and that's partly true, but I've found it easy to do now that I'm about a month into it.
You do get what you pay for... I pay for a lot of fruits and vegetables at Costco. As empty nesters this was previous folly, but now I can mow through most of the food before it goes bad. (I know #firstworldproblems).
Is nothing compared to the joy of a scrappy day with the crew.
