There are a few snacks that I at times keep on hand to keep me on a decent eating regime. For many people, part of the problem with a diet is the feeling of hunger between meals, or the sense that you have to have a will of iron and give up on things like flavor. I don’t think that’s the case – there is a way to eat, even on my own regime of very low carbohydrates, where things actually taste good and you can eat when you’re hungry. Most of the time I, myself, won’t make these kinds of things only because I’m at a place in life where it’s just simpler for me to make chicken and broccoli for days on end haha. But I remember foods like this were helpful – and sometimes still are – when I’ve needed variety while still sticking to a low-carb regime.
I’m still writing the piece about diet in general – and about calorie math and the official witchcraft of the mesomorphic fitness profession – but it occurs to me that I wanted to write something last week after putting up my first Bodybuilding post about where exactly I was when I started. I know I gave some vague statements about where I am, but I wanted to really lay it out, not just for readers but for myself (as I said, part of designing success is planning for failure, and you can’t know what failed if you’re not tracking it). So let me describe my diet as of last week, my methodology for having it, what kind of results I think I was getting, and why I think it needed to change.
