The first post in this series about dieting is: Losing Weight Via the Change Diet
This whole diet scheme I’m crafting does most of its magic two ways: ignoring nutrition “rules” and tricking us into think about our consumption and use of calories more.
The rules my diet has are simple:
- Track intake and outflow of calories.
- Make us think about our food choices.
- Make us conscious of overeating, hopefully preventing it.
I’ve noticed that since I changed the diet from 25 calories per penny to 10 calories per penny, I’ve been more careful about what I eat. Why? I’m not really sure, actually. I think it’s subconscious. Having to use up more coins for the same food has made me stop eating some things.
It shouldn’t, I know. The food has exactly the same number of calories as before. So, go figure.
Still, I’m glad. I was at a plateau for months; I couldn’t seem to break through 215. But, since I changed to ten calories per penny, I’ve cut several pounds off that. I’m down 58% now!
