When You're Young You Don't Need to Diet

Weighed in this morning at 154 pounds, down two pounds from yesterday.

And yesterday I was not really on the diet, however I was still able to limit in my intake to a reasonable level. Here's what I had...

Morning: Dannon Activia Yogurt, 4oz (110 calories)
Morning: Thomas' English Muffin, Multi-Grain (100 calories)
Mid-morning: Starbucks Grande Caramel Apple Spice (380 calories)
Lunch: Steak Ka-Bob & Gyro, salad and rice (1009 calories)
Lunch: Medium-sized cup of diet green tea (0 calories)
Evening: Half a bottle of water (0 calories)

Total: 1599 calories

And no exercise yesterday, unless you want to consider motorcycle riding an exercise.

I went out riding yesterday with some guys I hadn't seen in a long time. We ended up at this food court for lunch. After lunch, the guys wanted to call it day, but I didn't. I wanted to do a little bit more riding, and/or find some other friends to hang out with. I called up a couple of guys, but no answered. Otherwise, if they did I was going to drink some beers.

But as it was, I ended up riding home and didn't eat or drink anything after that.

One of the guys riding with us was this 20-something year old skinny guy. I'd say he was the same height as I, about 5'8", but probably weighed around 140. At lunch, he had the same thing I had, except he didn't finish the steak ka-bobs, and part of the rice.

What that said to me was that he's skinny because he's able to stop when he feels like he's had enough. I'm sure he didn't feel full, but it wasn't really a big meal. He simply has better control of his urge to eat.

But he's also quite young, which means his metabolism is working strong, and he seems like he's always busy with something, which means he never finds himself snacking out of boredom.

I wish I could be that way!
