I’m on the Clothes Diet(TM)

Why am I on this exclusive and somewhat secretive diet? The boys at the Lodge will be mad at me for telling their secrets but I think you can keep this between just us.

I bought some shorts a month ago and I didn’t pay attention to the designation that said SLIM fit. They barely fit and so I need to lose a little bit of weight to wear them comfortably. I like shorts and this is motivation to avoid things I shouldn’t be eating, so I put myself on a diet.

Normally I would not be on a diet. My weight has stayed pretty much the same for a decade. However I want to be as healthy as I can be, and my doctor has told me that any abdominal fat can be damaging to my health. So once that is gone then I am back to my routine.

I don’t have a specific number. I did some research and there is difficulty in giving a specific number for everyone. It depends on your muscles, genetics, and so many other factors. I know that I would be happy to lose 5 lbs which I have done before when I was sick and didn’t feel like eating. I lost this when I was sick a few years ago so I know I can do it. I just have to avoid heavy-calorie food and be as active as I can.

Since I already eat a salad a day, I need to have more self-control in my other meals. I tend to snack more than I should so now I will change that or change the things that I snack on. As I have gotten older processed food is less appealing to me. I mostly eat at home and I tend to overdo the carbs. So perhaps I will try cutting back on carbs. I for example could eat a PB&J every day because it can be so delicious. The fruit flavor with the peanut flavor is just so flavorful for a supertaster. I know what my favorite peanut butter is and I love the texture and flavor. When you find the right ingredients, even a simple preparation can be delicious.
