    Where’s Friday? Also, lack of totals?

    If I were to suggest one thing is to eat something between meals. I don’t see a lot of raw vegetables, so maybe snacking on snow peas, carrots, kohlrabies and lightly steamed broccoli in between your mealtimes will help. I really try to pack as much fresh veggies in everything I eat.
    On another note, I’ve been following this for quite awhile, and have been really inspired by you. I’m a full-time college student looking for a full-time job, so at the end of the day, the last thing I want to do is exercise.
    Keep it up.

    Tyler, I think it’s great that you’ve figured out how to lose weight in a way that allows you to eat the way you want to (and the way you realistically CAN) for the rest of your life. But I’d like to introduce you to a friend of mine: fruit. I beg you…eat some fruit now and then. Your body needs it and there are so many nutrients in fruit that are so dang good for you. I’d eat like you all the time if I could. But I promised myself I’d add just one piece of fruit (not nearly the recommended amount) into my daily routine. A banana and some milk, or an apple with some peanut butter, or strawberries with some splenda sprinkled on them.

    Purty please?

    I miss chic-fil-a they don’t have it in chicagoland that I can find without driving a significant distance. Maybe I recommend the yogurt or fruit next time so you don’t have to eat those greasy fries. I know they rock but maybe it would save you some calories.

  5. Tyler says:

    The waffle fries are so good, though. I do try the coleslaw, but that’s not much better calorie wise, even though it does do better for the arteries.

    I’ll add some fruit. Once a day. How’s that? Check back next Saturday and see if I can stick to it.

  7. Tyler says:

    Eww, broccolis.

    No kidding, the last thing I want to do is exercise. I’m a dad, husband, blogger, and part of a growing company — if I can find time, absolutely anybody can.

  8. Tyler says:

    Sorry, it posted early.

    No, but I got my free chicken sandwich!

    Just a suggestion, how about some diet soda instead of regular soda?

    Here’s a tip for adding fruit to your diet… I’m like you, I hate fruits and vegetables. Well, I hated them at least. I’ve recently had great success adding milk and bananas to my diet. Both foods that I couldn’t stand.

    How did I do it? In each case, I started with the ingredient by itself. And slowly, everyday, I would eat as much as I could stand. With a banana, that was about a fourth of one, on the first day–which is a couple of bites. I ate it slowly and stopped as soon as I felt like it. I took time to smell it too. The whole point was just to get used to the smell, taste and texture. Surprisingly, each day I could stand a little bit more. And after a week or two, I could finish off a whole banana. Now, I love and look forward to both bananas and milk. It really works.

    Another tip for fruits is to think of them as candy. Almost every non-chocolate candy is based off fruit flavors. Go grab the actual fruit of your favorite candy flavors, and you’ll be surprised how much it tastes like candy. Raspberries are a great example. They’re small and bite-sized.

    Umm, that picture looks like someone’s intestine. Ick.

    Probably Tyler’s, after all that Chick-Fil-A.

    That’s the sirloin with shrimp, fellas.
