following: Hoser's own diet
performance: losing 1.8 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.

calories burned
As others have said, it depends upon your riding style. If you're sitting on your butt as you cruise down a freeway then it's likely a few more than driving a car but not by much. If you're out on the twisties really working it then it's probably closer to light-to-moderate canoeing. Road racing will be more than street riding and really active dirt biking will be more than road racing.

I did a ride from San Francisco to Las Vegas once where I fought an intense cross-wind for about 80% of the trip. My muscles were constantly working just to keep the bike going in a straight line-- I was constantly using my arms, shoulders, back, and leg muscles. By the time I got to Vegas I was exhausted and the next day I was sore in muscles that I didn't even know I had. That ride burned way more calories than driving a car would have.

There's nothing wrong with eating at night as long as you plan for it. Make sure you have healthy snacks lined up for nighttime munching.

It's expensive season at my local market

I went back and bought more morels, as well as a few other types of mushrooms then made a big batch of mushroom and red wine ragout. I never cook steaks at home but I picked up a small grass-fed NY strip steak. Yesterday's dinner was steak, mushroom ragout, roasted carrots, and miso creamed chard. Delish!

High Fibre Diet
I think fiber is an underrated nutrient, and most people don't get nearly enough of it.

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.
