My latest read is 'Warrior Diet'. It is quirky, and low on research, but a good starting point for thinking about eating. One thing I particularly liked was his division of eaters into 'predators' and 'scavengers'. The first target a specific prey, and eat mindfully, the second eat whatever, whenever. Just keeping that one concept in mind and following it could make a lot of changes in your diet. But after getting used to having sources oresented, I found myself questioning almost all his statements with an internal 'where's the proof'? Guess I am getting more analytical, and not willing to take anything on faith. Which is good for me.
I liked the information in 'Wheat Belly' but the format turned me off. It was too reminiscent of the diet books from the 70s and 80s, with its short chapters of someone suffering from a particular ailment, dropping wheat, and, voila! It almost felt cheesy to me. I would have preferred more biology. The stuff on how wheat has changed over the last 60 years was fascinating, though. I wish this was more widely known.
'Nourishing Traditions' is on my buy list, and 'Primal Mind, Primal Body'. So many books!

Another light dinner. I felt a little gassy in the afternoon(the nuts, maybe?), and not very hungry at dinner, so again, just the bare minimum. Woke up still feeling a little 'off', so I am going to hold off on breakfast as long as I can. Tonight is gym night (my honey goes every week, I tag along once in a while). I've missed the last two, so I probably have to go for my own self-respect, but that means an early dinner, as by the time we get back, it is just too late for me. So, a two-meal day might be best.
