My name is Rachel Fischer. I am currently studying at Dominican University in River Forest, IL for a Master’s degree in Library and Information Science. I have a BFA in Fine Art from Columbia College in Chicago, IL. I am an artist and musician. After having started a blog about food allergies at autoallergic.wordpress.com, with more followers than I thought I would have, I decided to add a second blog about dieting. Actually, I have never chosen to consciously go on a diet, but there are times when I am scared that I will gain too much weight, since obesity does run in my family. I am 5 ft tall and weigh 120 lbs. At my lightest in my adult life I weighed only 100 lbs. and regularly exercised. Now, I really do not feel like exercising much and know that a lot of people out there do not feel like exercising, whether it be because they do not have time, or for another health reason.¬† There are so many diets out there which advocate a lot of different ways to succeed in losing weight, from being vegetarian or vegan to the low carb diets that advocate eating meat and not carbohydrates. I really do not like the idea of even bothering with any of these specifications, and as someone with food allergies, being a vegetarian or vegan is not an option. I eat meat twice a day. In general, I advocate not worrying too much about what you eat but controlling the size of your portions so you do not overeat. So, this blog will basically record what I eat, along with the amount of exercise that I do have, as a sample plan of a person eating a normal diet without thinking about dieting on purpose. I will attempt to record portion sizes in as detailed a manner as possible. However, since I do have food allergies and not much time to cook, I have to warn you that my diet can be very boring.
