Well I promised to follow the Shangri-la diet and update readers on my progress. I had some issues with illness and injury and didn't really follow the diet for a while. I finally got healthy and over a nasty cold last weekend and started both exercising and following the diet regularly. I'm trying to take 1 tablespoon of extra light olive oil (ELOO in Sharngri-la terminology) 2x a day.
To control for exercise and trying to lose weight, I'm going to compare my progress losing weight to the same time last year when I was also exercising regularly, hopefully at similar volume. Not exactly a placebo control, but at least I'm comparing apples to apples.
The line part graph shows weight at the end of the week in both years and the columns my weekly mileage (which is a combination of running, ergometer running with a few miles added for each strength session). I'll try to update weekly
