    Skipped Muay Thai yesterday.

    It's weird, my reading for class tired me out so much that I just ended up going to sleep about 10pm.

The diet is as simple, and as hard, as it sounds: I will avoid sugar and flour for the next 2 weeks, starting now. The goal here is to rid myself of the taste for sweets.

    Oh, and I woke up early and did Back and Biceps at the gym this morning. I'm feeling pretty good, but kind of slezzzzzzzzzzz*
    I can't join you in the diet, though I am curious to know
    what else there is to eat besides flour and sugar?

    That's a good question, considering food is mostly made up of sugars, fats, and proteins.

    Unless he means refined sugar.

    Most likely.

    It's impossible to get rid of all sugars. Your body makes it's own from carbs.

    Here's a brief review of the diet: Dr. Gott's No Flour No Sugar Diet - Diet Review. It's simple, but a bit extreme. I plan on sticking to it only for 2 weeks to help rid myself of my craving for sweets.

    And yeah, I mean processed sugars. Sorry for not clarifying that.

    Hap, the 3 macronutrients are carbohydrates, fat, and protein. What is normally considered as sugar (glucose, sucrose, fructose) is classified as a simple carbohydrate. Complex carbs are more like fiber (fruits, veggies) and starches (potatoes).

    The problem with processed sugars is that they are densely packed with calories but contain no nutrients. A highly processed sugar diet makes it possible for you to eat 3,000 calories a day and still be malnourished. Which means your body may be in a form of starvation mode, because it's not getting the food it needs to run properly. You lose on multiple levels.

    Fruit still contains sugars, but it also contains nutrients and fiber (mostly in the peel), making a 100 calorie apple pack alot of nutrition.

    Carbs are good. The brain needs them for energy.

    Lots of whole foods. Fruits, veggies, meats (some meats are healthier than others), dairy, spices, nuts, and legumes.

    If you can't give up pasta and white bread, a good alternative is whole grain pasta and whole grain bread. The carbs aren't as refined. Plus, I personally find they have a richer taste.

    That picture's not me. It's some random Internet dude who cheated on his wife. But maybe if someone uses all 10 of their cheat days they have to do that to get back in the challenge?

    Here's last week's.

    10/19
    Had a parfait for breakfast, an egg salad sandwich with veggies+chips+grapes for lunch, and some butternut squash soup for dinner.
    Eating: good
    Exercise: no

    10/20
    Parfait for breakfast. Lunch was some sweet potato fries, and odwalla, and a cliff bar. For dinner I had stew on egg noodles and buttered bread. Did about 20 minutes of yoga.
    Eating: pretty good
    Exercise: some

    10/21
    Parfait for breakfast. Had an early dinner of chicken, rice and green beans and some sugar cookies. Still feeling kind of sick, but well enough to get some exercise. Did 15 minutes of yoga to warm up, went for a 20 minute jog, and did another 20 minutes of yoga after.
    Eating: good
    Exercise: yes

    10/22
    Parfait for breakfast, bagel and cream cheese for lunch, eggs+mushrooms and spinach+biscuits and gravy+banana bread for dinner. Walked around a lot and took the stairs.
    Eating: good
    Exercise: a little

    10/23
    Had something for lunch but didn't write it down. Dinner of tortillas, chicken, rice, beans and veggies. Chai tea and hot cocoa. Walked around a lot.
    Eating: ok
    Exercise: some

    10/24
    Fruit, yogurt and a scone for lunch. Hot cocoa. Did 10 minutes of yoga, 30 minutes jogging/walking/sprinting, and 10 more minutes of yoga.
    Eating: ok
    Exercise: yes

    10/25
    Had almonds and poptarts for lunch. Dinner was quiche, carrots, and gelato.
    Eating: ok
    Exercise: no

    TOTAL
    Exercise: 3/3 (It was split up more, but I was actually very active this week)
    Eating: good

    I'm pretty happy with how I did this week, especially since I was feeling kind of sick for part of it. Also I've realized it might not be possible for me to get in hour-long workouts just because things are getting kind of hectic, so I'm going to try to break it up into smaller workouts that I do every day and larger ones that I do a couple times a week, that way at least I actually get the exercise.

    25 min Tae Bo/Ab workout

    Too rainy to walk today. Again. AUGH. I heard that this was the wettest October here on record.

    I have the opportunity to make my own dinner tonight though Planning on garlic/onion couscous with soybeans and maybe some soup.

    I have a feeling that if I keep this up I'll end up built like a sumo wrestler.
