And so another day draws near a close
Thursday, July 21, 2011
I am old now--and I hope I have changed. I am trying to aim at a balanced diet. In the past I was always striving for either 200 or 300 calories a day. Then I would crash and burn.
I have never tried moderation before in my life. Why eat a cup of ice-cream when you can finish up the pint? Or the quart? Or the half-gallon?
This is it--I'm old and my body is the repository of a lot of bad choices.
I'm afraid to flirt with extremes. If I eat too much I might have a heart attack! (This is serious--not melodrama!) If I eat too little, I could go into an extreme electrolyte imbalance.
So I've finally figured out how to post all my food intake here and I'm being honest. When I eat all the fiber, fruit, veggies, protein I need I end up with at least 1100 calories a day. Weight loss will be very slow but I hope that health will improve.
