Food Diary - Day Six, 4.6.04

POST #    921

Yesterday was my best food day so far of this seven day food diary. The Cheez Doodles might make it look bad, but I only had a few, which caught me by surprise. More Chinese food for lunch, which included Hainan chicken and some spicy shredded pork, and another winning Pepsi. Dinner was Japanese food, where I think we might have ordered too much for three people. At least most of yesterday's food was healthy.

Yum, sushi. One of my personal favorites. Good to see that the quality of food is improving, but I'd have to comment on the poor distribution of food throughout the day. No breakfast? And (with the exception of the "just a few" cheese doodles) nearly 8 hours between lunch and dinner? This is clearly not a balanced way to approach nutrition throughout a day. Something to try out, though it doesn't work for everyone, is eating less at individual meals but eating more often. You might find that it gives you better balance throughout the day in terms of energy levels. Try shooting for having a small meal/some sort of food every 4 hours. You can certainly make some of the meals a little bigger than others, effectively keeping the breakfast-lunch-dinner cycle going, but eat less at those meals and have something more substantial inn between. Perhaps this is a way of fighting the famous Tien naps we hear about? Plus, breakfast is vital, and skipping is a big no-no.

Damn I sound old.

joe, i just usually don't have time to eat breakfast in the morning. i have to squeeze every minute in bed i can have and then scan the sports headlines, shower and leave. and the time between lunch and dinner was so large because we were waiting on my aunt. normally, i eat dinner around 7. right now, i'm trying to train my stomach to eat less food.

and those "tien naps" are because i don't get nearly enough sleep and i don't make it up on weekends.
