This will be just a quick update on my diet experiments for the first 5 days. I'm finding that my vegetarian upbringing might be an added challenge. I checked around at bodybuilding.com and found that tuna is a key component of many diets. Sadly, I've made two heroic efforts at eating tuna and failed miserably. I can chew, but not swallow. I've had better luck with boiled chicken breasts. Not delicious, but edible. I'm going to have to work up to the requisite quantity though.
I'm also planning to give steak a try at some point. It is sort of intimidating, because I've never cooked a steak or seen one cooked. Not to mention that I've never eaten a steak either. I guess I'll be eating lots of eggs and some chicken here in the short term while I expand my dietary horizons.
Coming up soon, some adventures in man-scaping where I will try shaving my armpits for the first time. I know that about half the countries population does this approximately daily, but I'm finding I'm a little frightened of the process.
