Gap the Mind, Please

Naomi, 23, lives in Los Angeles, CA but desperately wants to go back to London, obsessive tea drinker and chocolate eater, extremely hierarchical and incredibly incorrigible.

Diet of … Worms??

Yup, you read it right—I’m starting a diet. My friend Jen did Atkins and lost 10 pounds in 2 weeks, and I’ve got about that much to lose. I recently read the book Why We Get Fat by Gary Taubes, and it changed the way I view the food I consume … a bit shocking, really! Plus, I’m realising that my constant in-take of pasta, ice cream and cheez-its is perhaps not the best thing in the world for me to be eating.

And so Day 1 of the two week period has come and gone. I’m feeling a bit hungry at the moment, but I know the hunger will subside once my stomach shrinks a bit. Let’s hope so, at least. Anyway, I figured tumblr would be a good place for me to track my meals/weight/moods. We’ll see how this goes.
