My average caloric intake is between 800 and 1200 calories per day.
I do not eat red meat or pork, have minimal dairy and no caffeine.
Also minimal alcohol.
I also cook most meals for myself, with homemade vegetable and chicken stocks as a base.
Within those guidelines I basically eat when I am hungry, and don’t think about food when I’m not.
I often go whole days without remembering to eat (or drink).
What I eat is pretty much anything I feel like at the time, be it sushi, veggies, chicken, cupcakes, candy, popcorn, potato chips – literally anything. I love carbohydrates, and I’m a particular fan of cream sauces.
That said, my caloric *outgo* is minimal. I have days where I am mostly sedentary, where I can be on a coding or writing binge and basically not move for multiple days in a row.
On a normal day I will walk maybe .5 miles throughout my whole day and that’s it.
Exercise is something other people do for reasons I haven’t been able to fathom.
I don’t have any idea how much I weigh.
What I do know is that I have clothes in my closet from college (20 years ago) that still fit me, and I can still wear my wedding dress (15 years ago).
And, people think I’m way younger than I am.
So, I’ve come to realize that worrying about what you eat and how much you weigh can cause you to age.
