following: Hoser's own diet
performance: losing 1.8 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.

Sugar
There's nothing wrong with eating at night as long as you plan for it. Make sure you have healthy snacks lined up for nighttime munching.

It's expensive season at my local market
Jealous!

I went back and bought more morels, as well as a few other types of mushrooms then made a big batch of mushroom and red wine ragout. I never cook steaks at home but I picked up a small grass-fed NY strip steak. Yesterday's dinner was steak, mushroom ragout, roasted carrots, and miso creamed chard. Delish!

High Fibre Diet
I think fiber is an underrated nutrient, and most people don't get nearly enough of it.

Food intake list
Yes. Go to your diet calendar here: http://fatsecret.com/Diary.aspx?pa=fj

Just under the words "My Food Diary" you will see three little icons. The one on the right is a printer. Click it.

Scroll to the bottom of that page and you'll see "Print All Data for (Month) (Year). There are two links there, one for a PDF and one for a spreadsheet. The PDF is pretty readable. There are forward and backward links for different months.

Does anyone else "trick" themselves on their RDI?
It's not exactly tricking myself, but I give myself a daily budget of about 100 calories of random stuff that I might eat that's too small for me to track. Sometimes I'll grab a small handful of blueberries and munch on them, for example. One blueberry has roughly one calorie, and I can't be bothered with adding five calories here and ten there. That wouldn't work for some people, but I kind of have an internal check that keeps me from overdoing it this way... I just know that my reported consumption is usually 50-100 calories below reality, and have set my RDI accordingly.

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.
