I fasted all day. My girl [his fiancé, actress Heather Burns] is out of town, so I've been eating really quiet meals. Every day I have a high-potency greens drink. I drank that in the morning with water. I was going to give myself a luxurious late dinner; when I met friends at the Gotham Awards after-party, they suggested Edward's, but the kitchen was closed so we went to Tribeca Tavern. I had a Neapolitan pizza. After each meal I take a green-tea-and-cinnamon pill and two fish oils so that I don't want a dessert.

I was on the set. They have a really nice Craft service; sometimes the movie is so poor that it's just Ritz crackers. I had a bagel with cream cheese and later, a big lunch: a cheese, lettuce, and tomato sandwich with chips and orange juice. For dinner, I ordered from Burritoville, a vegetarian sloppy-Joe quesadilla.

When I got to set, I had an egg sandwich. We were in the Bronx. Griffin Dunne really wanted to get Italian from this famous place on the concourse. I forget the name. I had shells stuffed with spinach. For dinner I had a grilled-cheese sandwich and a salad.

I was in rehearsal at Uma Thurman's house. A year and a half ago I quit sugar, but she had these ginger-snap-meets-chocolate-chip cookies. I had one just to try to be cool, and it was damn good. At night I had mattar paneer and plain nan from Sonali. I wanted nice, clean vegetables and something spiced the right way, so I wouldn't have to eat a lot.

I was cleaning my house all day. I had the greens drink, and then I had a sugarless-peanut-butter-and-jelly sandwich on wheat with a big glass of milk. For dinner I went to Café Orlin, which is like my living room. You can't beat the breakfast special in terms of a fresh, clean egg breakfast. I had a chicken-cutlet sandwich.
Friday, November 26
I had the greens in the morning and a banana, and later, a peanut butter and jelly and some cheese and orange juice. Then I ordered very late from Cinderella Falafel. I was more interested in the chickpeas: A falafel is a falafel, and I don't wanna feel awful!
