Shochu Diet...

Back on September 1st of last year i decided to start The Shochu Diet. As many scientists have done over the centuries, I used myself as my own laboratory. When doing experiments, scientists hold all conditions constant, changing only one at a time to see which has the desired effect. That's nearly impossible in a non-laboratory setting, but I did what I could. Read More...

If you’ve been following The Shochu Diet, you’ll know that I reached a 12.2 lb weight loss after 11 weeks. It’s now been almost twice that long (21 weeks), but the holidays happened (regained 5 lbs by New Years). Fortunately, I’ve started to claw some of that weight back again thanks to an end to the festivities.

The Shochu Diet started on a lark. I’d seen some photos of myself from a friend’s wedding and realized I’d gained more weight than I had imagined. It wasn’t so much that my weight had climbed, but that my fitness had declined. I’m normally very active with cycling, soccer, and tennis, but a broken fib lead to a torn meniscus in my right knee, which slowed my summer down considerably. I looked back at my Wii Fit history and found that on September 1, 2010 I had weighed 169 lbs. Exactly one year later I weighed 177 lbs. That’s not… Read More...

This is becoming a lifestyle change rather than a diet, but it’s still working. Down almost 2 lbs this week. 11.7 lbs over 9 weeks. I’m now 3 lbs from the goal I set to reach 2.5 months from now.      … Read More...
