Guest Ingest: Wednesday

In keeping with SC's request, a little more commentary.

1 bowl Cheerios, 1% milk
Corn bread, toasted
I always try to fully consume whatever I buy or prepare. As such, you will continue to see this corn bread listed every morning until the over-large batch I made Monday is gone.

1 can Diet Pepsi
I think I drink my two daily DP's mostly because they are free in my office. Otherwise, it would just be more bottled water, of which I consume probably 80 to 100 oz. a day.

Dil-E-Punjab deli
1 vegetarian lunch box, containing:
some lentil thing
some chickpea thing
some spinach thing
1 can Diet Pepsi
Dil-E-Punjab, on 9th Ave, is a deli of the sort frequented almost exclusively by cab drivers. A very large quantity of food was only $4.50, though I was somewhat taken aback when my order, after being placed in a styrofoam box, was microwaved; I was under the impression that microwaving styrofoam releases posion gases or something. Anyway, it was good.

Sony Studios craft services
1 chocolate peanut butter chip cookie
2 cups coffee
Consumed more out of boredom than hunger, while watching a game show pilot taping. (An updated version of the Bill Cullen classic Chain Reaction.)

Then, a tragedy. After work I tried to go to Shake Shack. I got there at about 6:25, only to find that they had closed at 6:00. 6:00?! What kind of restaurant closes at 6:00pm? Confused and hungry, I ended up at Mandler's. A totally insufficient fallback.

1 knockwurst, sauerkraut
2 cups Diet Coke

Then, my inaugural visit to Trader Joe's, as will be evidenced in food reportage to come.

1 Aleve

I've been meaning to get some concrete data sets for my water consumption - I have a rough idea of what I drink, much higher in the summer, but I want some real numbers on paper. I guess this isn't the kind of thing that people normally ask their friends, but do any of you guys have any spreadsheets on your water intake?

I'd love for you to compile everybody's numbers, work some comparative graphs. Early prediction is that Junior takes the cake.

I agree on Junior, although, on my best day, I probably take in 8+ liters. On a typical day, when it's not too hot, I'm afraid I might only drink about 2 or 3, which I don't like, because I'm a big believer in drinking as much water as possible.

Schoboats, re: Mandler's, I'm sorry you had to do that, but Mandler's isn't a bad little place. It's just not really full blown dinner food.

Regardless, this idle specualation, this rough mental finger-counting of glasses of varying sizes is not going to fly any more.

Not once I get my data.

Did you guys know that dak drinks no water whatsoever? One time he pulled out a bottle and put it on his desk, meaning to drink it later. Several weeks later, he realized the bottle was still there. He had consumed no water of any kind in the interim.

Otherwise, of course, he's the healthiest guy I know.

My water estimate was only for work hours. (I must drink water more or less constantly while at my desk.) Actual full-day consumption harder to pin down. But I drink a lot. I hope that kidneys aren't like Brita filters, worn out with excessive use.

Mandler's is fine. I like Mandler's. But when I was all geared up for SS, it proved a disappointment.

I drink a pretty significant amount of water a day (4-5 liters?). This pales in comparison to how much I drank when I was working (I'd guess 7-9).

I think that drinking lots of water is the keystone to good health.
