Here is what I'm taking away. Eat less fat. Eat lean proteins. Eat very little sugar and carbs with a low fiber count. Eat smaller portions. Where I get confused is with the "Mediterranean diet" ideas. Like you can be generous with olive oil, nuts, beans, etc. Not so much a worry about fat as a worry about bad fat. Returning to seriously reducing all fat seems to make me feel like I've decorated my house in that '80s peach/pink and I'm making my hair stand straight up with gel. It's so late eighties.
Exercise went much better today. I walked stairs in my office with my Nigerian office-mate. We climbed 770 steps in 15 minutes and I got to hear several Nigerian aphorisms.
Several people have commented that I normally am funnier than this blog. Perhaps hunger wiped out my sense of humor. How sad. In fact, today I ate bigger portions, although not over the top, and am less hungry. I don't feel any funnier though. I'll work on it.
