K-12/Dali Lama diet


K-12 portion: Eat the way you did in school - 3 meals a day, no snacking (How could you? You were in class.); do not drink ETOH (How could you? You were a minor!); limit the sweets as your parents did for you and you are hopefully doing for own kids (but is so hard to do for yourself!); exercise 3-5 days a week (like P.E. class, or step it up to the level of a HS extracurricular sport!); walk around town a little bit at night as you did with your friends, talking about school, family, your hopes and fears, etc. (take your kids/spouse with you now, though, and talk about those same things).
Dali Lama portion: "Always thinking about your next meal when you don't have to is a waste of life." "Eat what is available and a little bit of everything."

 How To Follow K-12/Dali Lama diet:

See detailed description. Be reasonable in what you eat when you consider the principles described there. And of course, drink at least 6 glasses of water a day. Additionally, an ETOH treat on the weekend is called for, now that we are actually old enough to imbibe.

Klmtbs's top tips

1.Be in touch with your food, i.e., fix your own food. Get personal with it! Don't let someone else stand between you and your food. Eliminate the middle man.
2.Eating out is something you can afford to do after you learn to appreciate food by cooking it yourself. And even then, you have to make healthy choices.
3.The hard part of eating out is violating "Eat a little bit of everything..." They give you too much of the wrong stuff - cheap, fat fillers, e.g., french fries, refined grains.
4.Pretend you are back in school and remember how life was less stressful! Get away from it all today by going back in time. When you come back, maybe you'll ask yourself, "Why was I worried about _______?". I eat when I am stressed, so I am trying to get rid of the stress by using my time machine. LOL!

About / History

After I got sick and tired of entering every little thing I ate and every activity I did in the calorie calculator, which was just short of one month after starting My Fat Secret, I thought back to when I was my thinnest (but for healthy reasons) and said to myself, why can't I repeat that? Well, I have to take into account my lowering metabolism, but I will strive to eat smaller portions! Stop obsessing over counting calories! Back in 2009 when I read an article in the Dali Lama and it contained his practical advice on eating, I thought these two particular pieces were golden. It puts food as a whole in perspective for me.
