I was reading MadMax's discussion below about health and weight and all of those happy things that we have to deal with as we get older, and I started thinking back on the last three years (since I bought my Egg). Even though I Egg several times a week, I have lost almost 30 pounds in that period of time [down from 229 to 200], and I have been trying to figure out why. [Part of it is more exercise and less bread, but not all of it.][p]I think I might have a partial answer: lunch. Before I got the Egg, I used to eat restaurant food at lunchtime. But once the Egg arrived, restaurant food became second-rate. So now, with a refrigerator full of terrific leftovers, I "brown bag" smoked chicken, pork loins slices, salmon, lean beef (usually chopped and mixed with rice), etc. Unlike restaurant or fast food meals, I am now more in control of the size of my portions and more in control of the ingredients. Restaurant food often has a lot of hidden fat, and in fast food, they don't even bother to hide it. But food on the Egg tends to be somewhat lower in fat, because the fat drips off, especially during slower cooking.[p]So, Max, don't think of this as a time when you have to give up fast food. Instead, think of this as the time when you finally get to have "Egg food" for lunch!
