Starch Solution, Years Past: Food & Exercise Diaries

Day 6 of Higher Carb Starch Solution: April 19th

Day 6/28

I’ve lost another quarter inch off my waist, so in 6 days it’s gone from 25 inches to 24.5 inches, while I’ve been eating as much as I want of my favorite foods (which is a lot of food–I had 2700 calories today!). Not to mention, my grocery bill is halved eating this way: I biked to the store today and got a week’s worth of food for $30, despite the fact that here in the Bay area groceries are about 20% more expensive than the national average.

Also, for any nutritional naysayers out there: today I got 200% of my daily iron requirement and 90 grams of protein (my RDA is 40g) without trying! (In addition to 100%+ of everything else I need)
