A Fouled-Up Diet

Too dumb to break mirrors, I allowed vanity to get me on a diet. I denied it was just another "yeah, sure" moment, one more immature effort to get hunky again. I convinced myself it was a calm considered crack at feeling better and getting healthy.

Because I've had some luck with the low-carb thing. I threw away my uninsured anxieties over possible complications, dumped the brown rice, swore off the great (and dirt cheap) big box store chocolate chip cookies, and stocked up on meat and dairy products.

I started losing weight - but it didn't run off in sheets the way it once had. Something wasn't working right. I was only losing a pound or so a week even though I was being a very good boy and keeping myself (I thought) under ten carbs a day. My body just wasn't going into that magical weight loss state of ketosis.
