"It seemed like a good idea at the time." Sometimes it seems I say that, or at the very least think it, quite a bit. My "See-food Diet" was no exception.
It seemed like a good idea at the time.
It was a pain. Entering calories into an app is far easier than taking a picture of everything you eat. Often times I would just plain forget to take the damn picture. A few times I ended up with pictures of partially eaten meals or empty plates. In the end the pictures I ended up getting of my meals just didn't look as tasty as the food actually was. Nor were they in any way aesthetically pleasing (my Martinis look much better when photographed) and posting pictures of my food to Flickr every night, when what I really wanted to do was go to bed, was annoying as hell.
But the main reason why I am leaving the "See-food Diet" behind is....(drum roll)...I gained a pound and a half, not exactly the result I was hoping for.
So what did I learn? 1) I probably eat probably too much sugar and white flour. 2) I need to drink more water. 3) I eat a good amount of fruit and veg, but could probably eat more. 4) I eat less at the beginning of the week and more on the weekends, and 5) I might drink a smidgen too much on the weekends.
I now return you to my regularly scheduled diet where I need to monitor everything and not just take a picture of it...well eventually. Not right away. I've some indulgent social plans within the next few days.
There will probably be more picture of Martinis.
