performance: losing 0.4 lb a week

I'm the crazy fuchsia-maned poker-playing photographer smartass geek chick your mother warned you about.

I really like Michael Pollan's philosophies on eating-- "Eat food, not too much, mostly plants", and, "Don't eat it if your great-great-grandmother wouldn't recognize it as food." The food of my midwestern ancestors does not include many of the ethnic cuisines that I enjoy, so I've decided that for these purposes I have a great-grammas Chen and Nguyen and Tanaka and Singh and Santos and Romano and...

The rules of my diet are pretty straightforward:

1. Don't be stupid.
2. Eat real food, not food products. Food is fruits, vegetables, lean meats, eggs and dairy, grains.
3. Cook it yourself-- no prepared foods.
4. No artificial sweeteners, low-fat impersonations of foods, or other chemical concoctions.
5. Absolutely no high-fructose corn syrup.
6. Try to keep daily calories in a predefined range (currently 1200-1400).
7. Eat things you enjoy. Dieting is not suffering.

And really, we're not all advised to do that-- it's a common myth though. Drink when you're thirsty.

1600 calorie diet
Food should not be bland! There are so many wonderful herbs and spices, vinegars, peppers, and other flavorings that bland food should not exist... unless you like it. Richly flavored does not need to mean high in calories.

I question any nutritionist who put you on raspberry ketones or any other snake oil.

Calculating Stock
Stock has so few calories that I would just treat it like water.

What is a good inexpensive pedometer?
I'm a huge FitBit fan. They aren't insanely cheap, but it's cheaper to buy one that you will not lose rather than several that you will. The bracelet version might work well for you.

Eggs anyone?
I love eggs, but factory egg farming is an abomination and I try to avoid supporting it as much as possible. When I buy eggs they come from hens that are raised in pastures rather than in cramped cages. Do a Google image search for "factory egg farm" and you'll be horrified.

This is day three of two weeks without grains. I'm recording this merely so I can remember when I started. If it goes well, I may extend it to a month.
