MaxDiet Week: Introduction

I occasionally mention my diet, which has spawned some questions in a recent thread as well as in my survey results.

So this week I'm going to explain my diet in detail, focusing on what I eat, why I eat it, and the facts behind the food.

The ideas aren't mine originally, and I'm certainly not the only person to eat this way, but I call it the MaxDiet because there is no formal name for it, and from the research I've done it appears to be the best possible diet.

There are few morning things that have the power to absolutely dictate my mood for the day. A loss in my fantasy league, for example, will pretty much ensure that I'm scowling even on the nicest of days.

More relevant thing to you, my dear reader, is the number that I see when I step on the scale while I'm on a fat loss diet.

Fortunately the scale reading is only a number. Like all pieces of data, this number may or may not be an accurate reflection of whether or not you are losing fat.

Let's look at problems with over relying on your scale weight and how we can better interpret said weight.
