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. I’ve held steady the last few months, but perhaps it’s time to make that final push. The Hacker’s Diet isn’t like those fad diets that push specific foods. 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.

    I’ll write back when I’m halfway thru.
