I haven't been good about this kind of thing for that long a stretch for a while, so let's see how I do. My rules: no sugars, not even the kosher kind. Stevia is okay, but no maple syrup, honey, or even dried fruits. Fruit in moderation, like only one piece a day. That part won't be hard; I rarely get carried away in that department, especially in winter. Only tiny amounts of starchy vegetables like sweet potatoes, carrots, beets. No white potatoes or rice. No pigging out. Try to put breakfast off until noon, so I can have only two meals in the day. A bed-time snack is permissible if my tummy will keep me awake otherwise.
I decided this after breakfast, so I'll carry this through till next Monday noon. Breakfast would have been close: Greek yogurt, blackberries, seeds, and macadamias, but there was about a teaspoon or so of maple syrup in there.
As befits any serious attempt to lose weight, I started with something of a feast. Leftover pork liver with bacon and onions, roasted acorn squash, seasoned and dotted with butter, and a green salad (lettuce, microgreens, and red pepper) with home-made mayo. Judg Fudg with stevia and coconut extract for dessert with black coffee. My fat creds are good, every single one of those items included some form of fat. No sugar. The piece of pork liver was a little on the large side, but not excessive.
I'm going to try to do my resistance band routine once my late lunch has had time to settle. I'm still a little draggy from the weekend, although much better than yesterday.
So keep me accountable, people. Throw rotten eggs if I cheat.

More and more, our life has been governed by specialists, who know too little of what lies outside their province to be able to know enough about what takes place within it.
