Please Sir, I'd Like Some More.....

Gruel that is! Here's a subject that I'm sure hasn't been beaten to death on this site! It's FOOD, Glorious Food!

Tonight I ate at the Grand Lux, owned by the Cheese Cake Factory people. If you haven't had the pleasure of dining there, it's well worth the wait (sometimes over an hour). Huge menus & even bigger portions.  As I ate there, I couldn't help but notice how overweight most everyone was.  I've only seen worse at an all-you-can-eat buffet or on a cruise ship!  I don't write this to be mean, but at what point do you look in the mirror and say, "maybe it's time to do something"?!!? I had this wake-up call about 2 years ago. Having "fat" in the family genes, and almost falling asleep after lunch every day, I decided it's time to take control.  I signed up for the Zone diet. It's Dr Barry Sears's famous diet to help insulin dependant people avoid having to take insulin shots by regulating your blood sugar (hence, no sleepy bloated feeling after or between meals).  The US Olympic team is also on his Zone diet.  I have 4 meals and 1 snack delivered to my home every morning, 7 days a week.  I eat every three hours.  I am no longer hungry, tired, or without energy. I also work-out 3 times a week.  I've lost 20 pounds and 4 inches in my waist (11% body fat lost) in the first few months and have kept it off for almost 2 years. I feel great & find more time to do the things that are important to me.

Oh, and by the way, in case you wanted to know, or were asked by Regis on Who Wants to be a Millionaire, Gruel is Porridge (also known in American English as hot cereal), is a simple dish made by boiling oats (normally crushed oats, occasionally oatmeal) or another meal in water or milk. Oat and semolina porridge are by far the most popular varieties.Some other meals used for porridge include wheat, piecemeal, barley, or cornmeal. In many cultures it is eaten as a breakfast, often with the addition of sugar or cream.

Of course, I had to come and read your post that is supposedly a waste of people's time!  The never ending food battle.  Interesting to me, one of the "fatties", albeit not by choice.  I'll have to check out your zone diet.  I've not heard of it before.  You should have included a link!  ;-)

David,

Good talking with you this morning. I just finished making my big pot of gruel for the week (also known as steel cut oats). This saves time so all I have to do is nuke a bowl for breakfast. I call this Realtor(r) fuel. It's healthy and gives me strength to deal with the "wong-fu's of the world.

 

Keep up with the interesting blogs.

According to my Google search of "Wong Fu", I found a Wong Fu Productions. Here's their humble plea:   "Help Wong Fu Please continue to help support this website by donating. We're just honest college kids trying to make the world smile a bit, so any kind of help would be greatly appreciated. From $1 to whatever. I promise you we're not going out buying steak dinners. Every cent goes to this site and the productions."

They need to get into real estate! Then they can buy steak dinners!
