It is 9:03 on Saturday evening- the Ides of October- and as I listen to the Gators 2011 football team hang on valiantly against Auburn, I am feeling nervous anticipation about the new life I will be waking up to in the morning. I’ve just finished most of a ridiculously expensive steak and some premium chicken from the charcoal grill. The last two days have been a whirlwind of sushi, french fries, tacos and doughnuts. It is a combination ‘Carb Day’ from the old life, and a New Life Eve style splurge.
There will be plenty of time in the weeks ahead to discuss my fond meat memories from an Atkin’s low carb lifestyle, and the new frontier of a plant based lifestyle that is loosely described in the documentary Forks Over Knives. Since Cinco de Mayo of this year, I have easily lost 5o pounds eating meat, cheese, and eggs, forsaking all breads, pasta, sugar, and other carbs. Starting tomorrow I will be living a food for medicine lifestyle which is a sharp 180 degree turn with no animal protein at all.
I will add supporting video, photo, and other content during the life of this blog. Please keep in mind that I know nothing at all and duplicating any of my personal lifestyle choices without consulting a doctor would be madness.
