Exploratory Eating

My girlfriend and I sometimes perform these food experiments. For one month, we do or eat something differently just to see what happens. For instance, we were vegetarians for one month. This month of January, we're cutting all sweets and desserts out of our diet.

I guess these are more like body experiments. The point is just to see what happens when we change our diet. You can call it "exploratory eating". Do we feel more energized? Healthier? More tired? Is there no change?

The point I'm trying to make is that the testing mindset can (and should) be applied outside of software. Applying your skills in testing on your finances, health, and mental well-being could be a interesting (and possibly rewarding) experience.

Exploratory eating. An interesting sidebar from the daily grind of eating. I think it would be interesting if you blogged daily your feelings about the diet and how it changes the way you feel. Think about it, are you craving a sweet? A chocolate maybe?

Ha, actually what I've noticed is that I eat more sweets than I realize. Normally, when something is offered to me, I'll take one, whether is be a cake, chocolate, or whatever. Now that I've been mentally rejecting these items, I've noticed their presence much more often than I realized.

One of Mr. Beizer's graphs would be a nice thing to see, showing how changing your food habits leads to certain results. It might be nice to use the graphs to show loops and exits that are relevant to your eating experience. You might find need for changes in your actions or responses to food, like a graph showing a bad endpoint in the steps of a tax form.

Swimlanes for sources of events that start new eating steps might be fun to try. If you find undesirable chains of interactions between lanes, that might demonstrate the limits of your current eating situation, and suggest new issues to explore.
