I am still on this diet issue. After discovering that everything i love is poisnous, or so i thought, i found out more. Everything in the world is tendering towards poisnous.

I told u my boss is cute at 50 yeah? girl turned 50 january. she wore jeans on wednesday and she looked...fabulous! so we got talking about weight and she started telling me (again) the things i have to stop eating. she kukuma go bring me plenty formula of what to eat and what not. Of cos the things that are safe for me are extra-ordinarily booooooooooooring to put it mildly.

yesterday i ate some fruits and tomatoes for breakfast. ate some rice with veg for lunch- ok, quite bearable.
moins for dinner- not bad
today it was carrots, paw paw and water melon for breakfast - very very boring.
wheat bread for lunch which by the way is poisnous too, a bit. i've got moin moin already for tonight.
i'm to run away from all types of fizzy drinks. this is not so so hard, i hope.
run from all fried things - a bit hard but doable.
pls does nutri C count as bad too? The most difficult parts of my mornings are when i have to drink water, its just somehow jare.

then she did the ultimate, pulled out a list of common foods and their calories, i wanted to die!!!!
i have selected a few for u to see:

peanuts/cashew nuts - 20z 1/4 cup - 205
saltline crackers - 5 pieces - 60
ice cream - 1 cup - 150 (oh no!)
pound cke - 1 slice - 380 (whatever that is, its bad)
banana - 1 medium - 105
orange juice - 1 glass - 100
malt - 1 bottle - 250 (i'm never gonna taste that s*** again!)
tonic water/ginger ale - 1 bottle - 115
cocoa - 1 glass - 250 (Jeez, does milo count?)
custard with whole milk - 3/4 cup - 175
pap - 1 cup - 200
wheat cereal - 2 weetabix - 127
bournvita/milo - 1 tablespoon - 50 (thats a joke right?)
cornflakes - 1 cup - 123
boiled egg - 1 - 80
fried egg - 1 - 200
white bread/wheat bread - 1 slice - 65 (for real???)
boiled yam - 1 slice - 105
akara - 2 big balls - 610 (how come?)
beef (non fat) - 1 piece- 202
chicken - 1 piece - 165
boiled rice - 1 cup - 210
fried rice/jollof rice - 1 cup - 390
beans - 1 cup - 210
eba - 250gm- 320
amala - 250g - 282
semovita - 250g - 250
pounded yam - 250g - 260
tuwo (corn starch) - 250g - 317
spaghetti - 140g - 155
fried plantain - 1 medium - 300 (no wonder!!!)
fried potatoes - 6 sticks- 100
fufu - 250g - 320
sausage - 100g - 476 (OMG!!! i love sausages so much)

this is just some of the items, its about 3 pages, just ignored the other ones.

at this rate, they will condemn everything in the world as poisnous, what then shall we eat?

in short, there's nothing safe other than fruits and veggies again, like seriously?????!!!!
dieting is so hard men, whose idea was it anyway?!
in one of them diets, they proposed just vegs and fruits a week, hello??? are u frigging kidding me??!!!

i'm going to start some exercise tommorow too. only wonder how long this will last, i'm so indisciplined its so annoying. like this funny book i read a long time ago "My diet starts tommorow". it was so funny, the chic kept postponing her diets, its either she's too upset, heartbroken, happy and she has to eat. it was so funny!

anyway, am willing to try, lets see how it goes. at least i'll detox.
my diet has started.

have a great weekend y'all!

can anyone tell me how to add pictures in my post? the only option available to me is the one that i can put on my post title, i want it in the main post itself. how can i do it?

u know what, maybe we should just stick to a water diet. Water for breakfast, water for lunch and water for dinner. And when you're feeling peckish, just have a glass of water.

FFF said...

my dear, pls start something dat u can maintain o. no go because of person, carry load wey u no fit carry reach him destination. eat everything in moderation, daz key!

drinking water is healthier than nutri-c, do just manage to take up a water-drinking habit

LusciousRon said...

I came only for you dear!
Freshly squeezed orange juice is OK. If you drink the ones with concentrate then this applies if not, you are fine.
Potatoes has a lot of calories but I love it so a variation, instaed of frying it, pop it in the oven, its just as crisp without the oil!

Parboil your rice and wash it about 4 times after its been on fire for about 15mins, most of the starch gets washed away. Some carbs remain but not as much.

I love most of wats on your list but I have my variation on kost when I feel guilty about my health!

But if you have to cut back you must do the sacrifice. Goodle some healthy food options that wont taste like dust. Sorry love.

Try some lettuce with tomatoes and tuna, sprinkle a little salt or vinegar if u can stomach the taste. Thats a wholesome salad. All the best!

Omotee! said...

FFF, hey good to have u here. thanks o, am trying to do the best i can jare, i cant eat leaves like goat for a lifetime can i? lol

luscious, where have u been now? scottie pple no dey gree u time again ba? thanx love, i'll try the salad out if i dont puke in the process!
