  5. Refrigerate.
I'm very happy with the results.

1.5 pounds of chicken breast in a frying pan at 350°F for 35 minutes. Yum. Inhaled it.

If I wrap it in aluminium foil will it be more juicy?

I'm still very exited about this, and I think I can keep it up.

I'm currently eating a couple fresh sweet potatoes that I boiled for roughly an hour. Nothing else.

This morning I cooked a pile of chicken by throwing it into a pan, waiting for it to get crispy, flipping it, and waiting for it to get done. I still need to work on the options of adding water and a lid. Only the one ingredient.

A bunch of my meals have been a large can of chicken, drained, with the heads of a thing of fresh broccoli, mixed and microwaved for three minutes, followed by a sliced apple.

I'm sure a couple weeks ago this would have sounded gross to me, and not worth living through. It's nice how quickly taste recovers when you stop eating garbage - this stuff tastes great.

On the hypotheses "Availability of refined sugars reduces life span.", using mice.

Any suggestions on how to make this more scientifically valuable?

  1. Decide that it's killing me, or at least significantly negatively impacting my health long term much more than it makes me happy short term, and I'm seriously addicted.
  2. When hungry but not interested in eating good food which contains no sugar, realize that I'm not actually hungry, but craving what I'm addicted to, and wait until interested in eating healthy food. (That was basically my first day off.)

I have a serious sugar addiction problem. It has concerned [livejournal.com profile] cathijosephine a lot. I don't know how anybody manages to consume it in quantities that aren't unhealthy. I saw something that suggested classifying refined sugars as poisons because they displace foods that contain nutrients in diets.

My current list of evil foods:
  • Refined / added sugars.
  • Refined grains (white flour, white rice).
  • Fruit juice (refined sugar)
  • White potatoes.
"Sugar sweetened beverages" are particularly evil.

Part of this process was google searching for sugar depression.

The paleo diet is neat (just meat, veggies, and fruits), although I'm not sure about its exclusion of whole grains. An inconvenience that occurred to me last night is that I don't think canned fruit is available in plain water. The blood type diets are interesting (different diet for each blood type), although for me it basically just points back to the paleo diet.

The raw meat diet fascinates me, but I don't really want to spend that much money on meat of sufficient quality.

Update: Apparently all rice has a high Glycemic Index, so I'm going to try to stop eating it.

Costco doesn't sell fifty pound bags of pinto beans either!

I just ordered a Country Living Grain Mill with all the accessories except the electric motor and the lids. It can handle dry beans.

Mix 1 part water, 2 parts sugar. Cook on high until it just starts to turn brown. Pour into ice bath. Wait 30 seconds or so (to avoid burning yourself) and remove.

I was aiming for softball, but this was still awesome.
