Day 1: December 12th

            I didn’t even weigh myself because that’s not the point of this diet.  The point of this diet is to make myself feel better and healthier and all that junk.  I guess one could argue that losing weight would make me feel better but that one person would be wrong because I’ve been there before and it felt awful.  I should at least weigh myself for reference, right? Maybe tomorrow.  I’m writing this the day after so I can admit to you that I already cheated a little bit.  I know I suck, but Day 2 should go better.  I guess I should try to explain what this diet is.
            It’s sort of a gluten free plus diet.  The plus stands for food in all forms that I have come to know food in are not allowed.  NO sugar, NO wheat, NO milk, NO apples, bananas, oranges, grapes, corn, carrots, potatoes, soy, mushrooms, beans, rice, honey, syrup, cane juice etc…  Foods I can have are mostly meats, nuts, berries, healthy oils, yogurt (don’t ask how that’s different from milk), all green vegetables, cheese that isn’t moldy (?) (I thought all cheese was moldy), tomatoes, quinoa, millet and various other things that are allegedly good for me.
            Here’s how I cheated a little bit.  I ate lunch meat that was nitrate-free (nitrates are very very bad for you), but it had some sugar in like the 3rd or 4th ingredient.  Other than that one thing I completely stuck to the diet, I won’t be eating lunch meat anymore as it all contains nitrates or sugar or both or worse.
            The reason I’m writing this is to help myself keep track of what I’m doing and hopefully figure out what works and what doesn’t.  I don’t know if I’ll write every day but that is the plan right now.  I don’t feel very alert right this minute so I’m sorry if this isn’t very entertaining.  Maybe it will be better tomorrow.
