If anyone has stumbled upon this site over the past year, you’ve found it basically abandoned.
I never let go of the idea. But since the end of the potato phase last January, things in my life started happening — some good, some not-so-good — that drew my attention slowly away from thinking too much about the experiment. After a while, it got placed firmly on the back burner. Then the burner got turned off.
Over this past summer, I made a pretty significant decision to pursue a career in healthcare. Towards that end, I enrolled in school for a secondary degree/obtain needed science prerequisites, with the goal of applying to Physician Assistant school in the 2016 or 2017 cycle. Needless to say, this has taken up most of my time, and I haven’t had much leftover for personal projects.
But I hate to leave things in my life unfinished.
Which is why I’m going to make every effort to complete the experiment. I’m still interested in the results, and even if what I’ve found so far indicates that a purely diet-based solution to lipid control isn’t likely in my situation, I’d like to complete the data collection anyway. And it may make an interesting topic of conversation in an interview down the line.
So back at it then.
