My One Remaining Food VICE — Mediterranean Spinach Swirls (A Variant Of ‘Spanakopita’).

by Anura Guruge



Alas, my supposed restraint when it comes to food still has its limits. I can’t, however hard I try, stop eating these $3 Mediterranean Spinach Swirls from Market Basket. HELP.

It really is killing me — slowly but surely.

Who would have thought that this would end up as my one remaining VICE when it came to food.

Yes, I confess, that maybe once a month, if she grudgingly lets me, I will eat 4 – 5 teaspoons of Teischan’s leftover ice cream (with any chocolate sauce that is lurking around) at a restaurant.

That is it in terms of sweets for the last 6 years (i.e., since January 22, 2013). No cake, no pies, no chocolates, no muffins, no donuts, no ice cream, no cheesecake, no cookies … And I love chocolates, pecan pie, apple pie and ice cream.

I stopped eating nuts 10-weeks ago. And I LOVE nuts.

I drastically cut back on cheese 10-weeks ago. I could live on cheese. I now have a bit every few days.

I dramatically cut back on food 10-weeks ago. I have lost xx pounds in the last 10-weeks. SMILE. Not telling you how much. I am moderately pleased. IF I can lose another 10 pounds I would be orgasmic.

So, during the last 10-weeks these spinach swirls have been my ONLY WEAKNESS! Honest.

Who would have thought. SPINACH — BAD FOR YOU.

Over the last decade I have really acquired a taste for spinach. I eat a LOT of spinach — in multiple forms.

Spinach is said to be good for you.

But, these $3 spinach swirls I eat are killing me. I would be better eating chocolate donuts.

Even the guy at Market Basket, who makes them, told me that they are BAD for ME! 500 calories each.

I have CUT BACK — over the last 10-weeks.

I used to eat 3 every 10-days or so. Sometimes 2 a day. It was KILLING I.

Then 10-weeks ago, I went nearly a month without eating even one. It killed me.

Then I started cheating. One every few weeks.

I had one TODAY — which I bought yesterday.

It is killing.

I am SO ashamed!

This is bad.

I wish I had more control over my diet.

DAMN!

Oh … what happened 10-weeks ago.

That was when I had my knee surgery and discovered my blood sugar had SHOT UP to 103! 103! Damn.

Not good. I am

British Low-Carb Diet Advocated By The U.K. “Daily Mail”.

There was no surprises here. This is basically what I have been following for the last 6-years! Yes, 6-years.

Yes, I have cheated off-and-on. Not majorly. Went through a face of snacking heavily on nuts. I have cut that out since my knee injury since that has curtailed the amount of exercise, i.e., running, I can do.

As it says, this is not too hard to adhere to.

Just wanted to share with you.

The Trump Diet Is Working — Or Was It 10-Nights, On The Trot, With Melania?

by Anura Guruge


Donald Trump on Monday, May 29, 2017 — Memorial Day — at Arlington Cemetery.


Trump has lost weight — during his eventful, 9-day overseas trip. Looks like he is 10 – 15 pounds lighter.

It was hard to miss. I am impressed.

So, this must be the new Trump Diet. I hope they start marketing it soon, though I doubt whether I will be able to afford it — since it will, no doubt, require eating very expensive steaks and other cuts of fine meat. It will also eschew wine and I am sure I can’t stomach that.

It is ALSO possible that it was 10-nights, on a row, with Melania. He probably got in a lot of exercise and I am sure he created his own turbulence on Air Force One.

We will all have to keep an eye on the shrinking Donald. Pretty impressive. I am jealous. I would love to lose 10 pounds

by Anura Guruge


meddec11

Click to ENLARGE, read and ponder.


All other New Year’s resolutions
that you could probably
ever think of
are ALL subsets of Brain Meditation!


Why?

Because all resolutions require
cooperation from YOUR BRAIN.


You can’t opt to do more exercise, go on a diet, start a new venture, read a dictionary from cover-to-cover, have an orgasm a day, be more tolerant, drink more red wine or whatever, IF your brain does not support you in that goal.

The things that you think of as ‘Willpower’.

IF your New Year’s resolution involves ‘willpower’ IT WILL FAIL!

Click to ENLARGE.

With ‘Brain Meditation’ YOUR BRAIN will help you achieve whatever it is that you seek.

Brain Meditation‘ is the KEY.

So, PLEASE, just make ONE, and only one,
New Year’s resolution for 2017.

“I am going to learn about Brain Meditation”.

Happy New Year.

Think – Today: Why Is The Amazon River Called As Such?

by Anura Guruge

amazonrivermap-svgVery simple. The huge river in South America — the Amazon. Why is it called that?


Think first, then research, then THINK again. Think for the pleasure of thinking.


Yesterday’s ‘Think’What happens to the fat that you lose/burn during dieting. It is expelled from the body in the form of Carbon Dioxide and water (mainly in sweat and urine). There can also sometimes be some Ketones that are expelled — that produces bad breath. This YouTube video explains more and is quite entertaining.

Think – Today: When You Diet What Happens To The Weight You Shed?

by Anura Guruge


thinktodaybanner
fatSay you lost 5 pounds. Shed 5 pounds. There is the expression about ‘burning fat’. Where does the weight we lose go? How do we shed it. It doesn’t come off in chunks.


Think first, then research, then THINK again. Think for the pleasure of thinking.


Yesterday’s ‘Think’Plastic oven bags are made from a high-melting point NYLON (or polymer). They are FDA approved. The bags can melt, but not at the below 400° F temperatures they are meant to be used. The 2 tablespoons of flour, per ‘Reynolds’ who make such bags is for blending the fat and juices released during the roasting to protect the bags from bursting.

Say “YES” To Most Anything BUT Carbs — Carbs Kill.

by Anura Guruge


From the U.K. “Daily Mail“, August 23, 2016.

nocarbscxgxv


Cutting back on carbs 3.5 years ago was THE BEST thing I ever did for myself — in all of my life.

Not only did I lose 28 – 30 pounds BUT I made dramatic improvements on the ‘blood sugar’ (i.e., glucose) and cholesterol fronts.

Yes, I cut back on carbs because I had hit the ‘pre-diabetic’ limit. I managed, just via diet and exercise, to bring down my glucose from 102 to 90. I am happy.

PLEASE do not believe this rubbish. Carbs will kill you — faster than what you deserve.
