Diet Log - July 31, 2008

Weighed in this morning at 190 pounds. Down another pound.

Yesterday I was off of the beef jerky. Had lunch at Olamendi's mexican restaurant, and these carnitas in salsa verde. Came with rice and beans and a salad. I also some chips and salsa. I got pretty full, and didn't eat anything else that day.

But I did walk the dogs for 2 miles, so I got my exercise in.

I'm gonna have a beef jerky day today and see if I can trim off another 2 pounds by tomorrow morning. That will put me at a 7 pound loss for the month of July, which is what I did for May and June each.

Had another person yesterday see me that hadn't seen me in a couple of months, and noted how much more thin I am. I replied that it was my beef jerky diet.

Everytime I say that, it either raises eyebrows and or gets laughs. I don't think people laughing because it sounds like a joke, but because it's just strange.

The truth is that beef jerky is not this magic diet food, anyone can lose weight eating other foods. Rather it's just an equation of calories in versus calories out. It helps to eat a little bit throughout the day, just to keep your metabolism working. Exercise also helps to keep that metabolism going.

But you also need discipline. I can't do this if not for having spent the last four years training myself to eat smaller portions, and eat more salads. I also had to find ways from getting bored, which is largely what kept me searching for food to snack on.
