Scales And Mirrors (part 7) ©

I wanted to move mountains not become one. Gluttony is the only sin you can’t hide. It’s right out there, staring everybody in the face. A sin isn’t just an offense against someone else or something else, it’s every bit as much a sin against one’s self. If you can’t control your gluttony, then you’re a danger to yourself. Period. That doesn’t mean that fat people strike out against themselves instead of others. Aggression knows no fat boundaries as we saw in Ariel Sharon, former Prime Minister to Israel now deceased. Once regarded by me as the most violent man on the face of the earth – to others and himself – which means he was a danger to everybody. Out of control, eating a lamb a day, killing ten Palestinians a day, blowing up buildings, bombing schools, hospitals, libraries, bulldozing Palestinian homes to make way for Jewish colonies, taking people’s ability to survive and thrive away from them, uprooting their crops, bombing their police stations, ambulances. I could go on and on, but I won’t. It’s time to diet. I thought Ariel Sharon should lead those who aren’t starving in the world in losing weight. Perhaps if he had shifted his focus from destruction to discipline he would have found the peace he kept claiming he sought. Unfortunately he succumbed to his life style of excess and recklessness. Let him not be the example you seek to emulate in achieving your goals. No human is immune to reckless living.

Use a mirror and a scale. Those are your two best friends when losing weight and getting fit. Looking at your face isn’t enough. Like many people, I don’t gain a lot of weight in my face, so according to my face I’m thin.

How Fast Food Cues Can Lead You to Overeat

 

TUESDAY, Nov. 28, 2017 (HealthDay News) — Before heading out to shop this holiday season, steel yourself for an onslaught of tempting aromas that might lure you into a fast-food restaurant.

Food-related cues, like the smell of burgers or eye-catching menu displays, stimulate brain activity. This tempts people to eat more, a new study finds.

University of Michigan researchers conducted lab experiments with 112 college students. The investigators found that food cues made people feel hungrier and led to the consumption of 220 more calories compared with non-cue environments.

“Food-related cues can make people want or crave food more, but don’t have as much of an impact on their liking, or the pleasure they get from eating the food,” said study lead author Michelle Joyner, a psychology graduate student…

LILLY BELLE IS ALL IN

It only makes sense that if Steve and I are overweight, that our dog daughter Lilly Belle Pi is the same – sort of. Lilly has this strange hair that when grown makes her look a lot bigger than she actually is.

People about the building always comment on how fat she is, till Lilly gets a haircut and then they think I adopted another dog. They just don’t get that her hair grows pretty much straight out – kinda like the black people’s hair who most often are the ones who make a big deal over it. It used to upset Steve, especially when the person saying it was three feet wide, but he got over it. I don’t like it either though, it’s like why do they openly say something like that – right in front of her? How would they like it if I said how fat they were?

Ah who cares. She’s overdue now for a cut, because there’s a shortage of groomers in our area. She’ll be done by the end of the month and we’ll see how fat she really is.

In the meanwhile, Steve’s been walking her a minimum of one mile every day. He clocks it on his phone. Up to a mile and a half. She’s going to be built like a tank.

Lilly’s mostly vegan, but every time we eat she has to eat. And she’s very vocal about it. Snack for Mom and Dad, snack for Lilly Belle. Or else!!

So, Mom and Dad are on a diet and exercise program? That means you too Lilly Belle.

We’re going to get trim and fit together – as a family.

Truth be told, Lilly has gained some weight. Now’s the time to trim her down, while she’s still so active and limber. And quick on her feet. Is she ever quick . See must be doing something right, otherwise she wouldn’t be so healthy and happy – just not enough.

Hey Lilly Belle Pi, you’re going to be famous!

VEGANEGG PKG. 2

It took awhile for me to get to this VEGANEGG by Follow Your Heart. Steve finally found it at the Westside Market, but when unpacking the bags I noticed it was outdated by over one year. I almost gave up on it, since the people who sold it gave us such a hard time over a refund, even though he admitted selling us an outdated product and even said he had one more like it.

Anyway, we finally got back to the market and even-exchanged it against my better business judgment, but in hindsight I’m glad I did. Even this one, though, didn’t have such a great code. May 28, 2017 and it’s mid-March. I think most people who sell vegan products wrongly think, that because they contain no animal products, the codes really don’t matter. They do. Codes do matter.

St. Patrick’s Day. Happy. Happy. Me alone with Lilly, not wanting to work so hard today, decided to experiment with this VEGANEGG.

I had already researched it and read some reviews, which were all a bit lack-luster. They talked about the sulphur smell, they didn’t cook up so much like scrambled eggs, think they were looking for an exact replica. Nothing special. So here we go.

I follow the instructions: 2 tablespoons of the egg powder, not packed, into bowl with 1/2 c. very cold water (better from refrigerator than faucet, which is good for me, since that’s where mine is – in the fridge).

Whisk it, or if you want fluffier eggs, then blend it, but because I was only making one portion (one egg) I thought a blender too much fuss for too little product. So I whisked it a lot.

The instructions next said to heat a little oil (I used margarine for more flavor) in skillet over medium high heat. Pour in egg mixture, watch it sizzle, then immediately start scrambling using a spatula, which I did.

It said it takes longer than scrambling a chicken egg, about 6-8 minutes to firm it up. It didn’t take that long. I then salted and peppered the egg as I continued to scramble, but not a whole lot of scramble, since I don’t like my scrambled eggs in little bits.

I tore 1 dairy-free American cheese single by Tofutti on top of eggs, then sprinkled them with a little Follow Your Heart Parmesan. Covered skillet for 1 minute, then folded the egg over onto itself till the cheese was soft and melted enough for me.

I plated the egg, squirted some ketchup on it and ate it right away.

This portion seemed like 2 large eggs to me, not 1 egg as the instructions indicated. But it’s been a long time since I’ve had an egg, so maybe they’re bigger these days – everything else is.

Frankly, I was pleasantly surprised by the result. Although the person reviewing the egg on the internet was correct about the sulphur smell, it was only when I opened the bag. The cooked egg didn’t have a strong odor of anything. It was really like cooking a chicken egg, and now I’m looking forward to making an omelet, then trying some other stuff with it.

Prices vary across the internet, so shop around. I would buy these in bulk, to lower the price, if I could get a good code.

Lilly Belle loved them. I’m impressed with the VEGANEGG and am looking forward to making them for Steve.

THE BETTER CHOICES CONCEPT

The Better Choices Concept

The Better Choices Diet revolves around one very simple key concept:

For every food that you eat, there are likely to be other equally nutritious foods that will satisfy your hunger with fewer Calories.

The Better Choices Diet starts with a simple nutritional analysis of your current diet. It evaluates each food that you now eat, and recommends alternative foods that may provide more nutritional value and help you feel full on fewer Calories. Instead of shocking your body with an abrupt change in foods, the Better Choices Diet focuses on evolving your diet one food at a time.

Other benefits of the Better Choices Diet
Unlike many other diet plans, the Better Choices Diet:

Has no banned foods. Instead of rigid lists of “approved” and “unapproved” foods, the Better Choices Diet allows you to eat anything, but encourages you to make smarter food choices.

Requires no special foods or other investments. Everything you need to understand and use the Better Choices Diet is contained within this website.

Can be used with other diet plans. The tools and methods of the Better Choices Diet can also be used to improve the effectiveness of most other diet plans.

Can also be used for weight gaining diets. The Better Choices Diet is not just for weight loss; it’s about controlling your weight (up or down) through proper food selection and hunger control…
