After the initial boost from my time in the hospital, my weight loss seems to have slowed a bit. Part of that is because I'm tracking carefully and making sure that I'm eating reasonably close to my calorie goals. I had always thought these we... Read more

So today starts a new routine for me. Sunday is now my day to get things together for the rest of the week. Today that meant grocery shopping, making some hummus for the week and boiling eggs for my lunches. Now all I have to do to get my lun... Read more

I cannot remember the last time I had a diet program actually result in losing this much weight. I'm even more surprised since I haven't been able to exercise since the first week due to my surgery. The diet hasn't been hard to keep up with at... Read more

Just thought I'd enumerate a few healthy things to eat which happen to be in season at the moment: 1) Spinach. Spinach is just fantastic. It's such a versatile and nutritious green. Salad, check. Add it to marinara with a bit of bacon ... Read more

I love to cook and I love to eat. I genuinely love good food. There is nothing like sitting down to a great dinner with your friends or loved ones, sharing the pleasures of good company and good eating. Dieting, as a result, has presented a p... Read more

The more I read of _The Spark_ and the more I explore the community here, the more I like the approach to nutrition that the program takes. One thing that has always put me off about many diets (but especially those focused on removing some nut... Read more
You want me to eat how much?
Saturday, June 18, 2011      4 comments

I have said before that although I am a big guy, I am not a big eater, and haven't been one for years. As a result the calorie targets in a lot of diet plans have always looked pointlessly high to me. Since I've started tracking my food with S... Read more
The New Normal
Friday, June 17, 2011      0 comments

People say you can become accustomed to almost anything. I believe that now. I am having to come to grips with the fact that over the last year, I got used to a "normal" state of being in which I was always tired, frequently ill, depressed, un... Read more
