following: Hoser's own diet
performance: losing 0.4 lb a week

I'm the crazy fuchsia-maned poker-playing photographer smartass geek chick your mother warned you about.

I really like Michael Pollan's philosophies on eating-- "Eat food, not too much, mostly plants", and, "Don't eat it if your great-great-grandmother wouldn't recognize it as food." The food of my midwestern ancestors does not include many of the ethnic cuisines that I enjoy, so I've decided that for these purposes I have a great-grammas Chen and Nguyen and Tanaka and Singh and Santos and Romano and...

The rules of my diet are pretty straightforward:

1. Don't be stupid.
2. Eat real food, not food products. Food is fruits, vegetables, lean meats, eggs and dairy, grains.
3. Cook it yourself-- no prepared foods.
4. No artificial sweeteners, low-fat impersonations of foods, or other chemical concoctions.
5. Absolutely no high-fructose corn syrup.
6. Try to keep daily calories in a predefined range (currently 1200-1400).
7. Eat things you enjoy. Dieting is not suffering.

9/29/10: Hit 25% of goal.

How can I get the person that buys the food, to buy the right food.
Do you have any grocery delivery services available to you? Around the San Francisco bay area I can get deliveries from Safeway, Nob Hill Foods, and Amazon Fresh... and probably other things. If this is available to you then you can shop online and pick out what you want, and the groceries will be delivered to you.

You might also look into CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) boxes. These are typically farms or collectives of farms that deliver boxes of organic produce to your door on a weekly basis. Again, I'm spoiled by the richness and variety of my local agriculture options, but many places have similar programs available.

Try this its working for me
Losing one pound per day on a consistent basis would mean that you have a calorie deficit of around 3500 calories per day. Since that's almost certainly higher than your non-restrictive RDI, you'd have to be eating negative amounts of calories. It seems implausible that you could do this on a sustained level.

Salad dressing
If you go to the food entry for olive oil, one teaspoon is one of the measurements that you can select.

There are two good things that you should know to help you with this one:

- One tablespoon of pretty much any kind of oil is 120 calories.
- There are three teaspoons in one tablespoon.

You might see slight variations in 120 calories, but they're just noise. Peanut oil is listed as 119 calories, for example, and coconut oil at 117 calories. Pure fats will always be about 120 calories per tablespoon.

Option to add calories instead of a specific food?
Not directly, no. You could add a custom food for yourself and do that, but you'll still need to make up some other nutrition info for it.

FS data base
You only have to do it once, and it only takes a minute. After that the food should be available to you.

You should also be able to edit and correct the existing entry.

This is day three of two weeks without grains. I'm recording this merely so I can remember when I started. If it goes well, I may extend it to a month.
