Close your eyes

I had an EEG done this morning before work, my latest medical adventure. I kind of wanted to take a selfie with all the electrodes stuck on my head but the woman conducting the testing was not of a friendly or cheerful nature, in fact she seemed to be in a particularly foul mood, so I let it slide and simply did as I was told. Close your eyes. Open your eyes. Close your eyes. Open your eyes.

I am doing my best to follow the 5 rules to optimise my leptin levels and it is not easy:

Rule 1:  Never eat after dinner.
Rule 2:  Eat three meals a day.
Rule 3:  Do not eat large meals.
Rule 4:  Eat a breakfast containing protein.
Rule 5:  Reduce the amount of carbohydrates eaten.

Ok, those rules aren't really that hard to follow.
The unspoken rules are that no snacking is allowed and meals must be spaced 5 to 6 hours apart. This is my latest attempt to coax my body into expelling 5 frustrating pounds of excess flesh.

Speaking of meals, these are some things I may make on Sunday for during the week.
