Another half-pound of loss, and i almost regret the contemplation of going out for sushi tonight! ALMOST. ...Naw, i don't, because i'm sure that occasional carb refeeds are a good plan, to keep one's system on its toes. Kinda like hormesis.
Now that i've ironed out a few difficulties i found with this high-protein-high-fat regimen, and the weight is still coming off, i feel like i could conquer the world! Although it calls for what other dieters might call "sacrifice," i don't feel deprived AT ALL. Most western-world dietary practices are nothing but habit buttressed by bad science and corporate propaganda. My appetite is satisfied and i feel great. My nutritional needs are met -- i don't need to use food for any other purpose.
