Hungry for Food, Not Packaged Poison

By Laura Moncur @ 10:36 am — Filed under:

This season of the Vampire Diaries, has been so enjoyable. One of the “evil” vampires we’ve come to love, Katherine, was made human at the end of the last season and dealing with her humanity has been interesting. This scene, in particular, made me laugh my head off.

“You said you were hungry.”

“For food, not packaged poison.”

I thought to myself, I should make an animated GIF of that, but thankfully, She is electric, can I be electric too? did it for me! Katherine’s descent back to humanity has been coupled with an insatiable desire to EAT.

Got any food? from Starling Fitness

The scene where she is literally eating her way through the buffet line is priceless:

The truth of the matter is, my hunger response, just like Katherine’s, is BROKEN. I feel hungry all the time, but the more REAL food I eat (with protein, fat and a little carb), the better I feel. Additionally, eating every two and a half hours when my alarms go off (and NOT eating in-between), really helps me beat that out of control hunger. I still may have that hunger, but I tell myself, “I can wait an hour…”

The next time you feel like Katherine in her newly human form and want to eat your way through the buffet line, remember to eat REAL food, not packaged poison.

The Perfect Fit For Every Body? Shame On You, NIKE!!

I was at Dillards the other day and I saw this display.

Shame on Nike at Dillards from Starling Fitness

I needed some workout clothes, so I wandered over there to see what they had. Unfortunately, the “Large” size that they had couldn’t have been bigger than a size 12. Shame on you, Nike!

I have had this problem with them before and talked about it here:

Can you believe this is the XL?Back then, I said:

The fact that they don’t carry a size for me when I’m fifty pounds lighter, just tells me that they aren’t an athletic clothing company. They’re a fashion clothing company just like Kenneth Cole. They don’t want “fatties” like me wearing their clothes and giving them a bad name.

I wrote that entry in 2006. It’s SEVEN years later and they are STILL making the same mistakes. I was going to write an entry about the new Nike App called Nike+ Move that would turn your iPhone 5S into a device that monitors your every move like a FitBit, ActiveLink or Fuelband, but I don’t even want to give them a link now.

In the end, we left Dillards and went to Forever 21. They had plenty of exercise clothes to fit me.


What Happens If You Go Without Water?

By Laura Moncur @ 11:53 am — Filed under:

You can survive for a LONG time without food, depending on your fat stores, but you can only last a couple of days without water. What happens when you do? This video from SciShow explains the gory details.

Most diets recommend that you drink 6-8 glasses of water a day to keep hydrated, which is a good idea considering that many people turn to food when they’re actually thirsty. So remember to drink your water so you don’t get dehydrated.
