Day 1: The Olive Garden Experiment

It happened. We ate at the place with the Americans making the Italian food.

Somehow I will lose weight on this diet of eating there multiple times a week. What is the science behind this? I am no scientist, nor do I claim to be. I think there’s something there about reducing calories. Which basically means I have to only eat Olive Garden and then like celery and stuff.

We’ll see how that goes.

Anyway, review and ratings for Day 1:

I ate salad instead of soup. No real soup interest today. Maybe when it cools off. No croutons, cheese, or dressing, as I was sharing with my wife and she is perfect etc.

My first entree was:


Artichoke sauce (fancy)

Fried shrimp (nice and fried)

Second, unfinished, was

Corkscrews (Italian word)

Mushroom sauce (not mushroom left at this point)

Fried chicken (yes, I’m six)

Breadstick count: 4

Weight: 166

All was delightful.

No way am I losing weight on this diet! It’s gonna be a great year!
