So far, it’s been pretty easy going. Easier than I thought it would be. I wrote up a blog about my journey so far, because some of my friends have been asking. http://superrob.com/post/57800202134/drinking-my-way-to-better-health
Suffice it to say that my little experiment is working well so far. I’ve lost six pounds, so I’m finally back under 300. I feel better, I’m sleeping better, and I’m pretty excited about continuing on it.
More than anything, I feel like I know more about what’s going into my body now, more than I even did when I was cooking for myself, and certainly more than I did when I was eating out a lot. Crazy how a little knowledge can change your perspective.
Many thanks to everyone here whom I’ve been able to learn from, and in particular, @rob for his “crazy” idea, and @zach for his great recipe that I based mine on. And to anyone who’s thinking about doing this, arm yourself with as much information as you can, and then jump in with both feet. It’s definitely doable, especially if my lazy ass can do it!
