Slow Carb Diet: Day 7 + A Question For You, the Reader.

Halal. Fries. Ice Cream. Sandwiches. Burritos. Just some of my favorite/convenient/drunk foods + a billion other things. I can’t even handle this right now. The pain…I WANT TO EAT ALL THE THINGS. I AM A RAGING EATING MACHINE. I WILL EAT EVERYTHING IN MY PATH..


Diet’s sort of inconveniencing me in terms of..well convenience. Street carts, birthday celebrations, drinking(water), trying all of the foods. I don’t know how people with full time jobs do it. I have just a part time job and after everything I can barely keep up. I just can’t wait for this week to be over, then it’s back to gorging with my every-day-is-a-cheat-day mentality.

I’m glad I’m doing it though. I can’t believe it’s only been one whole week! Time’s gone by so slowly for me, and it’s taught me a lot about myself. I’ve learned to be more patient and disciplined with my decisions, and while pure willpower can only go so far when changing a habit, it is still necessary for a habit to be changed. Hopefully I’ve learned to be more conscious about my eating decisions and be less impulsive when it comes to eating out and drinking.

Here’s the typical eating list.


  • Cobb Salad at Pret a Manger (accidentally ate some blue cheese and some cranberries, but felt like a negligible amount)


  • Tri Tip Steak Salad at Grand Central Station


  • Las Tortugas Tortilla Steak Salad (without the taco shell)

Salad was a huge theme of today. Glad I got tons of veggies, but wow I felt so..”diet-y” I guess. Went to my favorite bar to do some keyword research and drink (real) water. Not a bad day, although I got a lot of work to do for the next week. Tomorrow will be a 7AM wake up call for Mimi’s Food Photography class, which I will be dropping into 🙂 Can’t wait, uber excited. But enough about me, a couple of things that require the attention of you, my fellow reader(if there is anyone reading this, of course).

I’ve realized talking about myself all the time, while enjoyable, is a tad narcissistic and I’d like to start providing posts that are helpful to you.

I have some ideas, but I’d like to hear your thoughts? Here are some of mine:

Self-Improvement (Achieving Goals, Getting Things Done, etc.)

Photography (Lighting, Composition, Headshots, Pricing Your Work, Membership Comparisons)

Health & Fitness  (Getting in shape, eating right)

Random Helpful Tips (Best Brunch Spots in NYC, Flea Markets, How to Haggle)

I figure I’d probably start writing about all of those, since I don’t want to be pigeonholed into one thing just yet, but I wonder if there’s anything specific that you’re interested in reading about? Maybe it’s too early for that? Either way I’d like to know.

Give me your thoughts in the comment section!
