Enormous Baloth Diet: I Can’t Believe How Much Weight I Lost!

Fathom Mage

Fathom Mage:
Still got a few details
of that look to work on 😉

So am I still an Enormous Baloth, or have I managed to become a Fathom Mage?

You won't believe how much weight I lost on my Magic: The Gathering themed Enormous Baloth Diet this week!

Starting weight: 223.6lbs
Ending weight: 218.6lbs

It worked! Ok, so I may not be a Fathom Mage yet, but I found this diet easy and pleasant to follow, and still lost five pounds in a week! Why? Why?? My best guess is: no bread...?

To sum up the Enormous Baloth Diet:

It's lots of vegetables, fruit, unprocessed whole grains, and pork.

Read the card:

Its diet consists of fruits, plants, small woodland animals, large woodland animals, woodlands, fruit groves, fruit farmers, and small cities.

So here's my food diary, but first, about that bacon:

I know bacon isn't usually a healthy food, but I was very lucky to find the healthier 'no added nitrates/nitrites' bacon in a pretty good sale at the supermarket this week - it must be a sign! Still salty, but it's an improvement 🙂

It’s the Enormous Baloth Diet!

The Enormous Baloth Diet: based on the Magic The Gathering creature that's most obviously dieting!

Enormous Baloth:
Sounds like a dieter to me...

Since the Enormous Baloth is the Magic The Gathering creature that's most obviously dieting, I thought it was about time to try out a diet for it.

According to the card,

Its diet consists of fruits, plants, small woodland animals, large woodland animals, woodlands, fruit groves, fruit farmers, and small cities.

So, it's fruits, plants, woodland animals, and we'll aim to stop there... 😉


Fathom Mage: what I'll look like by the end of my diet ;)

Also planning to end the week as a Fathom Mage

Off the top of my head, the only woodland animal I can think of is wild boar, (ie pork), since I can't bring my inner vegetarian to eat squirrels or Bambi, and yes I know that's not logical.

So it's fruits, vegetables and pork.

I've also decided to let 'plants' include whole grains, but that's literally the grains, like brown rice, jumbo oats or plain popcorn, not baked food, even with wholemeal flour.

And I'm cutting out dairy foods except for lowfat milk in my tea and coffee, because I know if I try to give that up at the moment the whole thing will go out of the window.

So who's up for the Enormous Baloth diet?
It's got bacon 🙂

Enormous Baloth

Enormous Baloth: Sounds like a dieter...

Hmm...

If we ever needed a Magic The Gathering mascot creature card for dieters, I think this could be it:

Its diet consists of fruits, plants, small woodland animals, large woodland animals, woodlands, fruit groves, fruit farmers, and small cities.

 
Starts off eating fruit and plants, ends up eating small cities, huh..?

Sounds like a diet to me! So here it is: The Enormous Baloth Diet!
