The Freedom Diet: Week 2

Ok, so I’m not going to do another long post with pictures and an eating log about the past week. I have it if your interested. But here’s how the last week has gone. Potatoes are awesome. I can now see why the potato famine killed so many people. They are hearty food when all else you have is green veggies. Onions and garlic are a great crop. Fry them up with just about anything and it tastes better. Bartering seems to work easier with people who AREN’T farmers. The reasoning being that farmers already have all the stuff you want to trade them.

This really has been the week of bartering. Here is everything I traded for this week. Each trade was from a different person.

1 head of gourmet garlic <-> 1 dozen eggs
1 Portion of green beans, 2 heads of garlic, 1 onion <-> 1 5lb bag of flour and 3 packets of yeast
1 Portion of green beans, 1 zuchinni, 1 head of garlic <-> 2 sticks of butter
1 Cucumber, 2 heads of garlic and 3 onions <-> 1lb of ground beef
2 Cucumbers, 2 heads of garlic and 3 onions <-> about a pint of olive oil
1 Portion of green beans <-> small block of cheese

With all these ingredients on hand you would hardly be able to tell I’m on a garden/barter diet. It’s been a very successful week.

Weight at the end of week 2: 176.8 LBS

That means in two weeks I’ve lost 18 pounds eating from my garden. Amazing. I feel healthy and energetic as well. I walk into stores and see all these miracle diets advertised in whatever the tabloid of the week is..and I laugh. I’ve got them all beat!
