    Yeah, I'm fine with it. Always have been.

    I'm not hungry at all in the mornings; when I eat at all it's to ensure I don't get a headache because that can spoil the whole day.

    This is why I just tend to skip breakfast (or if it's the weekend I just have a really late breakfast/brunch and eat egg scramble w/ hash browns).

    That actually was a very important move.

    Personally, though, I wish you'd hold off posting this for another hour or two each day. I'm in the Central Time Zone and I always get hungry when I read your posts.

    Re: Calorie Counting

    Game of thrones Sunday’s with my friends are nearly over, thankfully.
    I did manage to cook meals to cover M-W before I head to DC.

    We always do takeout food for Sunday’s to watch the show so we had chipotle with a Mexican coke, followed by a small blizzard. Coming off a sugar high.

    Something tells me this is too fast.

    I'm not hungry but despite a lot of sleep I am low energy.
    You've started cutting your caloric intake. Anytime you do that, your body will feel a sluggish until it accepts the new norm. It's the same as those people who go on Ketogenic or other low-carb diets. They all suffer the [insert diet name] flu.

    That's good to hear, but I'm pretty sure the Jacobins will get me at my first, "well, actually..."

    I figure I'm good for about the first 6 months of The Terror until they decide the intellectuals are counter-revolutionary because we're not applauding every execution wildly. That's usually how it goes.

    Really? The Claim: Fresh Produce Has More Nutrients Than Canned

My mother prepared it that way and I loathed it. I only discovered that I actually liked spinach later when I ran into cromulent cooking.
    My parents won't eat Brussels sprouts in any form because their parents only boiled them. Still scarred from it.

    With very few exceptions (beets, artichoke hearts), canned vegetables are virtually inedible - especially when it comes to green beans and peas. Frozen is acceptable (except for Brussels sprouts, which must be fresh), otherwise fresh is always best. Canned, I'd rather lick pennies.
