After today, there will be five more entries chronicling my month-long experiment of eating sausage and drinking beer. The end, as they say, is neigh.
At this point, it's a foregone conclusion that I'll finish. It's not been challenging since October 6th. That was a Very Bad Day. But now, my body has completely adapted and continues to shed weight. More importantly, FAT. Hell, look at my daily intake below! Two sausages and four beers? That's an incredibly low calorie count.
So what's next? Do I keep going, finding the equilibrium point? I can't continue to lose weight on this diet. There exists a point of diminishing returns. If not, I'd be below my birth weight by next Thanksgiving! (Do the math).
Or do I stick with the low-volume eating (call it caloric restriction if you like), adding in foods I've missed, like pizza. But instead of a whole pie (not all that uncommon previously), have only a slice? But will I be able to keep up the protein level that keeps my doctor grinning? Oh, and my muscle tissue from not being devoured for nourishment.
Maybe I keep the beer intake and mix in the idea of small portions, to see what happens? Do I switch over to scotch? Sake? Maybe mixed drinks of equal impact?
It's a damned fine question. And one I guess I'd better figure out in the next five days, huh?
Here's what I did on my #BrewDiet today:
- Breakfast was a Clementine by Clown Shoes. Very tangerine-y
- For lunch, a Brother David's Triple Abbey Style Ale by Anderson Valley Brewing Company and the remainders of my sausage/curry medley from last night
- Dinner was another Italian sausage from Costco and a 471 Small Batch IPA by Breckenridge Brewery, which you may count as two as it was a bomber
Here's to tomorrow!
