What is up with people blogging about restricted diets? I mean seriously how can you live like that? Do you not realize that at some point you are going to “break” and just eat anything and everything that is unhealthy for you anyway? Read on for the rest of this Healthy Living rant! Oh and I have a “Bonus Rant” too! LOL
I was going through some suggested blog sites here on WordPress and two sites came up immediately. I am clicking on them thinking they would have some excellent advise on eating healthy. Instead I get these pics of what they ate on certain days. Some of these pics looked liked vomit on a plate or in a cup (smoothie) and on this peticular day that “vomit” was their treat. Ugh! Are you kidding me? The highlight of the week for this blogger was using a carrot shredding sprial machine LOL to be added to some sort of bare assed salad that wouldn’t feed a mouse in China. I’m sorry but that wasn’t very appetizing, it was more like starvation. You know this blogger at some point is sneaking in a candy bar or over indulging in chocolate whipped creme in the coat closet. Ha!
I will be the first to admit that I do not always eat the healthiest but at least I enjoy my food and not restrict myself to the point that I would eat anything in abundance. I believe this is important as I have already proven that an individual can eat WHATEVER they want; it’s all about portion control. I have lost additional weight now by changing my eating habits to reflect smaller portions. I still enjoy chocolate cake, brownies and cookies when I desire them; I just eat smaller portions. So I cannot for the life of me understand why anyone would want to restrict themselves so much so that one cannot even enjoy a decent lunch or dinner. Don’t even get me started on the “desert” they had from a greek restaurant; to which the blogger replied, “It was too good to eat more than two bites”. Really? Why not no bites? I mean wouldn’t that be the healthiest? (rolling eyes) If I was at a gourmet restaurant in Greece, I would surely enjoy the foods presented to me. Oh and that desert was so little it would not even fit in the palm of my hand. GEEZ!
Bonus Rant! LOL
Europeans (the blogger was European) think American’s are over-indulgent and spoiled. They believe American’s are rude, obnoxious, and loud. They believe we are overweight as a nation because of our lifestyle in eating fast food. Well, they are right about fast food. In their countries there is not an abundance of fast food restaurants as there is in America. Personally, I rarely eat out because I know how bad the food really is, but you won’t see me bad mouthing them. No, in fact I would say kudos’ to them for having a thinner population. But this blogger was extreme to the point that I had to click off the page. To me THAT was insulting.
Since 11/12 to current: I have lost 39 lbs by eating smaller portions of food.
I have lost inches (I don’t measure so I can’t be exact- but its 2 pant sizes)
I sleep so good that I actually feel refreshed in the morning.
Oh, and I don’t hardly exercise either. I simply hate to exercise!
Bottom line: I think Europeans are rude, obnoxious and spoiled. I also believe they are jealous American gas is cheaper per GALLON then the price of their pathetic liters. This just means I have more $$$ in my pocket to buy me a gourmet cupcake when I want. So there! LOL
