Diet Log - May 1, 2008

veggie trayWeighed in this morning at 209 lbs, down another pound.

Yesterday, I ate this medium-sized veggie tray, containing only 5 servings, that my wife bought a week or so ago. I needed to eat it before we wasted money on it. I ate it plain, no dips or dressings, or anything. And then just had water to drink. That worked out to 125 total calories, and 25gm total carbs. Zero fat.

I also walked the dogs for a couple of miles.

Today, I'm planning to get out of the house and do some motorcycle riding with a couple of friends. I've really a longing for Pizza Port, a really good pizza joint in San Clemente, CA. It'll probably add another 3 pounds back on to me. But I'll try to do another couple miles of walking later in the afternoon.

Tomorrow, I'll stick to the beef jerky diet. I need to get a new review published on Beef Jerky Reviews. I've got one more package of Alien Fresh Jerky left. Oh Man! Really good stuff there.

Glad to here you lost another. I broke the magic 20 mark; really close to 21 but I am happy to say 20 pounds in less than 4 weeks. Still have not started to exercise.
Had my 4th nonjerky meal -- chicken at a charity lunch-scraped off the little bit of sauce. Almost spit out the ice tea when the server said it was unsweetened and I got a mouthful of sugar; I put it aside and drank water.

You mentioned avoiding sodium nitrate-- well I have not. How bad is that stuff for you?

Lose 15 more in May and then I will worry about sodium nitrates. I have a regular doctor's visit at the end of May-- I am sure he will not be a fan of the all beef jerky diet.

On another note, I was surprised that you disliked World Kitchen's Jerky so much. I agree with you that it is a differant texture than most jerkys. I would compare it to think sliced crispy bacon texture as opposed to the Jack Links style gummy jerky. But followed with a quart of water and that dryer World Kitchens fills your tummy.

Well off to google sodium nitrates.

That World Kitchens stuff tasted like it wasn't made of meat, but some other parts of the cow. I sorta tasted liver. But then again, it's priced really cheap, and you get a full pound in a bag.

BTW, its' spelled "nitrite" not "nitrate". I've been told that it's linked to colon cancer, and lung disease. Most of your garden variety jerky is loaded with it, because it's a good preservative for meat.

Funny about the "gummy jerky" you mention about Jack Link's, that's my impression also. I'll have to start using that term, thanks!
