The (Captive) Iguana Diet

WELL ladies and gentlemen, since I have (finally) gotten into grad school, and conse- quently have a post-graduation plan and future to look forward to, I decided it’s time to take my life into my own hands.


I’m going on a diet…not just any diet but one that’s (supposedly) going to make me feel great, healthy and energetic. It’s time that I got off my butt, stopped being so stressed out (because I don’t have to be anymore! Yay!) and did something good with my time…and more importantly…did something for myself.

So I’m going on what a friend of mine calls “The (Captive) Iguana Diet.” Basically, you eat anything a pet iguana would:
-Lettuce (spring mix)
-Turnips
-Swiss chard
-Collards
-Papaya
-Melon
-Peaches
-Plums
-Strawberries
-Squash
-Zucchini
Broccoli
-Bell pepper
-Green beans
-Carrots

You get the idea. Of course this also includes LOTS of water and for protein (I’m obviously not going to eat crickets), diced chicken in a salad 1-2 times per day.

I’m really excited about this. I’m on day 2 and I feel great. Let’s see how long I last before I cave into a Friday night Jim’s Steakout craving with friends.
