|Maya, Theo, and Max|
I'm putting in the miles, all I have time for, so the only way to get the weight off is to address the second half of equation, food intake. So, the staff of life: bread and beer, along with potatoes and most other forms of carbohydrates are now off the table, or at least severely restricted. I'm eating various sources of protein and lots of fruits and vegetables. This is a great time of year for that at least. I'm going to try to limit the beers to two per week, which may be the toughest part of the diet.
