Nuttin’ But Salad N=1 Experiment: Week 8 Summary

We can usually get reasonably-priced avocados in Arizona

My weight is 162.2 lb (73.7 kg), same as last week. In case this is your first visit here, my weight at the outset was 175.5 lb (79.8 kg).

Have you figured out we like canned mandarin oranges?

Not sure where I’m going with this. I still feel good and am happy with my weight. Unclear if my weight loss has plateaued. I still can’t see my six-pack abs, and I’m not sure I want to make a commitment to reveal them. That would require some serious calorie restriction, I think. I’ll stay the course for another week.

The black bug-like dots are chia seeds

I fell off the wagon on Easter. We ate take-home Chinese food to save time. I followed that with too many cookies and chocolates. That filled my glycogen tanks to the top, I’m sure. But I skipped my next meal, so no harm done. When your glycogen stores are repleted, any excess calories are stored as fat.

You’d pay a lot for this at a restaurant

  1. Are you looking to partner with Costco? Those beautiful salads are a tribute to the healthy food choices they make available.

    I am guessing that you are now losing fat, so the pounds may not change as your body increases its muscle mass. Your pants are loose, your belt is a notch or two tighter, right?

    Thanks for the updates.
    I’ve been eating more salads because of them!

    • Hey, Lee, maybe I should team up with Costco! Our closest Sam’s Club just closed.

      For those of you who don’t know, those 2 stores have good prices on many items, including vegetables. But you can’t buy just a single head of lettuce.
