Exactly a year ago, I started following The Hacker’s Diet, as I decided I was far, far too heavy. I stuck to it very closely for a few months until I got the hang of things, and now, I’m 50 pounds lighter. I’ve still got twenty to go to reach my goal.

It’s central point is “Eat fewer calories than you use, and you’ll lose weight.” To help me mentally, I started the diet by having bacon & fried egg sandwiches (with mayo) for breakfast for the first two weeks, and lost five pounds. Once my mind accepted that it wasn’t what I ate that mattered, but the energy input vs. energy consumption ratio, it was smooth sailing.

Jenn, of Whim & Vinegar, has composed a socialy conscious list of what one A-Rod could fund.
