Photo Examples of Food Experiments
- POSTED ON: Jan 31, 2017

The ARCHIVES here at DietHobby show that I do lots of personal experimenting with different types of diets and ways-of-eating.  Because reviewing my previous posts is helpful to me, I use DietHobby as a digital scrapbook, where I post and index - in a way that I find artistically satisfying - my thoughts, as well as writings, pictures and videos that I consider interesting or helpful.

Although interested viewers are welcome, all posts at my DietHobby website are first and foremost for me, personally.  As part of my dieting hobby, I belong to various online diet groups, and sometimes I share relevant DietHobby posts with fellow members, but I don’t “promote” my website.

DietHobby sells nothing, and does not promote any specific diet; way-of-eating; lifestyle; non-diet; books; clubs; supplements; foods; or memberships.

I address various issues in a one-size-does-NOT-fit-all way as they interest me or apply to me, and I frequently conduct experiments-of-one with a variety of different diets and ways-of-eating.  These experiments can last several months, or only a few days.   I’ve found that the more public I make my personal details in an ongoing experiment, the less effective that experiment is for me, so I am picky about what I share and what remains private. 

This past year or so I started recording pictures of some of my various meals in the Photo Gallery section of DietHobby (look under the heading RESOURCES) to record various meals that I’ve actually eaten as part of various experiments-of-one.

To date, the categories are:




Petite Meals









5-Bite Meals








3-Bite Meals

About the Scales
- POSTED ON: Jan 29, 2017


Should I weigh?
If so, how often?

Should I throw my scales away?

This issue is frequently discussed by those dealing with diet for weight-loss.

After a lifelong battle with food and with weight (see ABOUT ME), I’ve established what works for me.

Over the years, I have just about every reaction possible to the Scales.

  •  I've eaten because they showed a loss,
  •  I've eaten because they showed a gain.
  •  I've eaten because they didn't move up or down.
  •  I 've felt bad because they went up,
  •  I've felt good because they went down. 
  •  I've felt bad because they didn't move at all,
  •  I've felt good, when they didn't move at all.

Over time, I tried different variations to my use of the scales.

I tried weighing whenever I felt like it, even if it was many times a day.

I tried weighing once a day, and once a week, and once a month; twice a day, not weighing myself, but having a club or doctor weigh me. I spent several years not weighing at all.

I've bought many scales of various kinds, and I've thrown away many scales.

I finally came to realize that my problem is not with the Scales themselves.
