Photo Examples of Food Experiments

- POSTED ON: Jan 31, 2017

The ARCHIVES here at DietHobby show that I do lots of personal experimenting with different types of diets and ways-of-eating.  Because reviewing my previous posts is helpful to me, I use DietHobby as a digital scrapbook, where I post and index - in a way that I find artistically satisfying - my thoughts, as well as writings, pictures and videos that I consider interesting or helpful.

Although interested viewers are welcome, all posts at my DietHobby website are first and foremost for me, personally.  As part of my dieting hobby, I belong to various online diet groups, and sometimes I share relevant DietHobby posts with fellow members, but I don’t “promote” my website.

DietHobby sells nothing, and does not promote any specific diet; way-of-eating; lifestyle; non-diet; books; clubs; supplements; foods; or memberships.

I address various issues in a one-size-does-NOT-fit-all way as they interest me or apply to me, and I frequently conduct experiments-of-one with a variety of different diets and ways-of-eating.  These experiments can last several months, or only a few days.   I’ve found that the more public I make my personal details in an ongoing experiment, the less effective that experiment is for me, so I am picky about what I share and what remains private. 

This past year or so I started recording pictures of some of my various meals in the Photo Gallery section of DietHobby (look under the heading RESOURCES) to record various meals that I’ve actually eaten as part of various experiments-of-one.

To date, the categories are:




Petite Meals









5-Bite Meals








3-Bite Meals








Taster’s Choice




which includes

Taster’s Choice Experiment

Freedom in Maintenance Experiment

  The website genius who created DietHobby (who is also my adult son) is now working on technical renovations which are expected to make it more user friendly for hand-held devices as well as computers.  My goal is to keep the part of DietHobby that we SEE about the same, while updating the inner workings to make it more efficient.   So…. If you have problems accessing photos, videos, articles etc. be sure to watch for the new changes that are expected within the next several months.

I love your photos, they really help me come up with ideas for small meals. I have to stop cooking for a while, I've made a few different casseroles and soups that I've frozen into portions, and my freezer is full! In case you or anybody else is interested, there are some easy recipes on the "Drop 5 Pounds with Good Housekeeping" website. Both the red lentil soup and the chocolate pudding are really good. I froze the soup in portions but I've been eating one serving of pudding a day for the past three days. I try to freeze portions in 180-225 calorie portion sizes which often means re-doing the math to get the portion size right. :) I'm still looking for the sticky Glad wrap you use to freeze cookies, haven't found it yet but I'm sure it's sold somewhere in San Francisco! :) Thanks for everything you do and keep the photos coming.

             Thanks Carolyn. Yes, a fully stocked freezer does tend to slow things down. =) I have a side-by-side referigerator freezer in my kitchen and a large upright freezer in my garage, and it is amazing how quickly they both fill up. I find that frozen soups and breads and frozen packages of vegetables tend to take up quite a lot of room. I am fortunate in my that husband likes my cooking, and quickly eats up many of the individually packaged frozen foods that I make. My freezer always contains a large variety of individually packaged meals and desserts, so during any two week period I seldom repeat myself while fixing his meals, and I tend to simply fix myself whatever I'm in the mood to eat ... as long as it fits in with my calorie ratio and any ongoing diet experiment I'm involved with.
