Diet Formula

Okay, let’s get my tricks for losing weight out there.

1) Drink some water before consuming anything with calories.
2) No candy bars, pizza, or similar foods.
3) Only two meals a day (Breakfast and a mid-afternoon meal).

Thats it I think. I don’t try and curtail my chocolate milk intake. I just try and obey the “drink water first” rule. That seems to naturally curtail my gallon a day habit.

No additional exercise. I already try to get 30 to 60 minutes of physical activity a day. I have never noticed a relationship between more excericise and weight loss. The exception is if the activity keeps me away from food for a long period of time.

This may seem easy, but it is really hard for me. To use an Oprah-like term, I need to establish a “positive feedback loop” in my head. I need to make a connection between eating better and feeling better. Once I get this self-brainwashing established, the diet becomes a lot easier.

I have yet to get into the diet, the brainwashing hasn’t taken effect yet. We’re working on it. This post is part of that brainwashing.
