I'm day two into my foray into vegetarianism. Tonight was a big test--steak night at the chow hall. I have to say that it's not as difficult sticking to this as I thought it would be. There are amazing things they can do with vegetables these days. Tonight I sampled a veggie burger. Sounds nasty, but I found it quite tasty with a dab of mustard and mayo. Soup is always a winner (tomato soup, that is), and an ample salad bar makes things easy.
So far, the nearest I can reckon the experience to is like the feeling one has after eating Chinese food--hungry again after an hour. I'm having to toss back a Nutrigrain bar in between meals to kill the ravenous hunger that develops about 2 hours after eating. I will say that this new menu plus the running is producing some quick results.
Thanks to George for warning me about the cheese and, yes, I have been enjoying the water, although there are only a few ways to serve it.
