Psychological Seconds

I don’t really have a problem with eating healthy. In fact, I have a very healthy appetite. That’s the problem.

So while we generally eat pretty healthy food, my issue is with portion size. And no matter the portion size, if Going Back For Seconds was an Olympic event, there would be investigations into my use of performance enhancers due to my consistent domination of the sport.

So I’ve been pulling a little trick on myself I call “Psychological Seconds”. Pretty simple–I make my first serving of everything a little smaller. And I still have seconds, but now Seconds means the rest of the food that would have normally been on my plate for Firsts. I’m estimating I’ve reduced my caloric intake at meals by ~10-15% by doing this. I’m probably making up the calories throughout the day with snacking, but that’s ok since it probably keeps my metabolism more steady, which means they are probably burning off more efficiently.

At 204 today. My Clydesdale days are numbered.

By the way, if you try this and it works for you, feel free to send me a Little Debbie. They are delicious. “Little Debbie–Unwrap a Smile!”

Clean Your Computer Screen From The Inside – It really works!!!

Paranormal Activity –Don’t Need To See It – I’m a scary-movie-wimp. I hate them. I’d rather just read spoilers (like this one) and know that it would scare me if I saw it.

John Mayer’s Hilarious Political Answers – I’m actually liking this guy more after reading this interview. Yeah, he’s conceited, but guess what….he really IS an effing great guitar player. Flaunt it!

Google Should Stop Playing Around With Wave and Focus on Spreadsheet – I have to say, this is dead on.

Social Media Venn Diagram – I was going to post this to Facebook, but knew I’d get more attention with it on Twitter. I hope this guy makes a million bucks.

Eating practices of the best endurance athletes in the world – No wonder I can’t run like a Kenyan. I can’t even EAT like a Kenyan.

Remove RelevantKnowledge – This has to be the worst piece of crapware ever. Not sure how I ended up with it, but it makes your machine crawl. I was able to uninstall through Add/Remove Programs, but this guide should help you if you aren’t able to handle it there.
