Day one of the experiment

Not much to report other than when I look at my kcals taken in for the day, I'm 1120kcals under the amount theoretically required to maintain my current weight -if- you follow the kcals in vs kcals out model.  I have had a short run and a spin session today, but I'd usually get hungry after those and want to eat more anyway.

I'm not hungry at all.  Dinner was... experimental and based on an unprepared fridge; as in, I haven't done a grocery shop to match the experiment properly yet, so I did the best with what I had.  I'm not craving bread or potatoes (yet?) nor sugary things (I rarely do anyway), though we rarely eat pasta and rice (and when we do they're brown) so there's no loss there.  It is only the first day though.

To my previously educated brain, there's lots about that which looks awful; only 10g fibre, less than 5 portions of fruit and vegetables, but the protein amount looks great especially for the low overall kcals.  BUT.  I need to throw those ideas away for this experiment.  If you read Taubes' book "Why We Get Fat and what to do about it", you'll have a  fair idea of why those ideas have to go bye bye.
