The Truth About Ali: FDA Allows Diet Drug OTC (Over The Counter)
Ali won't work unless you also use a low fat diet and exercise. That's
pretty much the bottom line. If you can easily stay on a low fat diet
and exercise, you'll lose the weight anyway and don't need to take
Ali. If you take Ali and don't eat a low fat plan, you're going to
be sorry fast. The side effects are not pleasant. Just say no to Ali.
Will it Blend?
YouTube has forever changed the world. Now we can see our
kitchen equipment in full glory such as the Will It Blend series.
These are serious blenders for serious cooks and kitchen
The power will pretty much chew up and spit
out anything you feed it, so those pranksters at Blendtek cooked
up the Will it Blend series of videos.
My favorite, The Workout in a Blender
Take one Pilates DVD, a
quality food bar, high protein tofu, yoga, Slim Fast to wash it
Turn Granulated sugar into powdered sugar
Who knew? If you run out of powdered sugar, grab the blender and
make it yourself (without the added cornstarch).
Substitute for Pricey Mascarpone Cheese
I discovered making a berry trifle that you can make an excellent
substitute mascarpone cheese. My recipe called for 2 1/4 cups and I
couldn't find it anywhere. If you've never had mascarpone it's
called an Italian cream cheese. Apparently there was a worldwide
shortage because I couldn't find it in any of the places I've found
Luckily I found a recipe to make it myself. Split the
recipe down if you don't need as much:
Homemade Mascarpone Cheese
- 24 ounces cream cheese (3 - 8 ounce pkgs)
- 2 Tablespoon butter (real butter, no substitution)
- 1/2 C heavy cream
Blend all together with a spoon (or lightly mix but do not beat) and use it or freeze the extra. It will stay fresh for a few days in the fridge.
little trick saves about $20 from the recipe as Italian Mascarpone Cheese is pricey stuff but oh so delicious.
Whoops, turns out this is the highest calorie dessert of all Time!
I checked it's nutritional breakdown
I knew it would be high but this was
ridiculous: Over 8,771 calories per serving! Are you laughing yet?
How could that be? For starters they said it serves eight, not 24 like most recipes, but ah the pleasure. Sometimes it's just worth it, but don't go all crazy thinking you can eat like that every day and you'll be
just fine. I made a label, so if I manage to find it, I'll post it here.
Women in Art
Very well done video using morphing images to show the changing
faces of beauty.

Choosing a Goal to Start Your Weight Loss Journey
Choosing goals based on what you want is best. If you want to lose
weight, you obviously want to weigh less, so the scale comes into
play but it's just a mechanical box so shouldn't be worshiped like
a God. I like working toward small achievable goals, meaning five
pounds at a time (or less), even if you have much more to lose.
Once you've lost five pounds start thinking about the next five.
That way you can avoid the tendency to feel overwhelmed. Other
worthwhile goals are noticing your clothes get looser until they
are baggy. Being able to see your toes, being able to bend over
and touch the floor, being able to jog around the block, all good
Fitness goals are great too
I ride a stationary bike so I work on
adding more miles each week. I once rode over 100 miles a week; now
I'm riding about 45, so I'll slowly work back up. I may never get
back to 100 miles but it gives me something to strive for.
My goals are things I like to work toward.
Some people prefer to
choose goals that are "away" oriented, meaning they keep something
else from happening. Those are people who are motivated by goals
like not having a heart attack at 40.
You can also work on your eating habits with mini-goals.
I may decide to cut back on pizza by switching to once a week instead
of twice. No one said you can't eat pizza but how often is the
question. Sometimes it could be quantity, three pieces instead of
four, other times it's frequency. You decide.
Sound Like You?
It's dark. An alarm is ringing, must be morning. I arise, thinking.
What did I eat yesterday, last night? Soup, chicken, wine. The usual.
I'll be heavier. Stepping on scale, bad habit. Sweet surprise! Down
a pound. I step off, suddenly lighter. Now what's for breakfast?

Bean Eaters Lose More Weight
Studies show adults who regularly eat beans (legumes) weigh 6.6
pounds less than adults who don't eat beans. So there you go.
Beans are cheap costing just pennies a pound for dried -- chock
full of fiber, (19 grams per cup for navy beans) and are high in
protein. Try adding a bean dish to your weekly menu for a start.

cooking, gassiness (uh oh) and all things musical fruit

In the Pacific Northwest is local produce time. My own garden

Like Some Pie with Your dessert topping?
Catch the look on the
lady's face; it's a classic, then catch the Las Vegas Bellagio vs. Coke & Mentos Who knew you'd get an explosion by mixing Coca-cola soft drinks
with Mentos candy? Apparently these guys figured it out, then
got the idea: What if we created a water show like you'd see
at the Bellagio in Las Vegas? Hilarious
Book Review: I Feel Bad About My Neck
This book, I Feel Bad About My Neck, by Nora Ephron
Ephron describes what you go through when a favorite food purveyor
suddenly disappears saying, "It's sad. Not as sad as things that are
truly sad, I'll grant you that, but sad nonetheless. On the other
hand, the full blow is mitigated somewhat by the possibility that
somewhere, somehow, you'll find the lost strudel, or be able to
replicate it. And so, at first, you hope. And then, you hope
against hope. And then finally, you lose hope. And there you have
it: the three stages of grief when it comes to lost food."
Classic foodie sentiment. I loved this funny, honest book. If you're
nearing 50, you may enjoy it too.
I Feel Bad About My Neck at Amazon or your local library.
