I Know Diets Don't Work...............

If you have been to Trinidad you must have heard about Crix crackers its a staple here they call it the vital supply I always have a bag in the cupboard and I have a cookie jar filled with it in the kitchen also I have another cookie jar in the office guys from other departments always stop by my desk and they don't even bother to ask anymore they just reach in and take handfuls of it and leave, my jar is always empty when I come back to work from my off days and its cheap so you wonder why don't they buy their own anyway I stopped trying to figure that out a long time ago I love it you can get it in whole wheat, multigrain and original plain flavor I prefer the plain you can eat it with anything cheddar cheese is my favourite.

I have tried every diet under the sun cabbage soupslimfast,grapefruitdiet,Atkins,you name it I have tried it the only thing that works for me is exercise but I don't have the time my treadmill has dust on it I can't find the time so I decided to try this diet that a friend swears worked for her she ate crix and drank water only for two weeks and lossed a ton of weight sounds easy doesn't it?

Well starting today I am going to try it yes I know this is not the way to do it but I have to try something I love crix so it shouldn't be that hard to do i just keep a bag with me for those times I get hungry I don't have to be tempted to eat junk and you can get water everywhere how hard can it be so here goes.

My challenge for this week also is to exercise for two days out of the week find two days in my schedule and do some form of exercise I think its better to exercise just two days as oppossed to not exercise at all which is what I have been doing for the past few weeks and exercise will be going for a bike ride with my son or him riding and me running anything that will build a sweat and send the heart rate up so if any of you guys are up for the challenge just join me it doesn't have to be a gym workout anything that you can do a game of football with the boys or girls whatever so please join me its easy really just two days if you can do more good for you but for me I have to take it with baby steps.
I spent the better part of this night finishing a lab report that is not even going to be graded oh well the knowledge is more important than a grade I have to tell myself this otherwise I just wouldn't bother and I have two mid-term exam to study for so my schedule will be full this week really hope I can get some exercise in though.
So good luck in the coming week hope its a great week.

Crix and water? I don't think I could handle that much raw carbs from the Crix, but if it works for you - bet your @ss I'm doing it too!

Crix crackers (yes, we have then here as well) good with Solomon Gundy. Had some last night while sharing spirit wid bredrins.

Yeah I know that biskuit! In fact Jamaicans know all the cookies and drinks that come from Trinidad, cause dat's all this wutliss govenment do in JA, import.

The battle of the bulge his really hard mi girl! Wi in the same boat. But I don't think the crackers & water diet is a good idea.1 you will starve your body of vital nutrients and protein, 2 cause of dat you will loose more muscle than fat, 3 you will gain back the weight as soon as you stop that diet. My advise is to have small, low calorie, low carb, low saturated fat meals throughout the day. East nuff fruits and veggies, dem will fill yuh up without the need for lots of carbs. And last but not least, haffi do the exercises. All the best. I was suppose to start some runnin, but the rain here crampin mi plan.

crix and water for two weeks, girl you gonna kill yuhself. I couldn't do it. For a safer bet, just try a veggie and water diet.

Girl, they used to call my brother Crix cuz he used to eat only crix when he was little. We even named our puppy crix too!!! Loved them. Thanks for bringing back memories!

lemme know if that works, i am forever fighting the weight battle. oh, my soon to be mother in law is from trinidad, maybe my fiance will get down there after the nuptials...

Dr.D and scratchie what is solomon grundy? I have never heard of that is it a fish I know its a rhyme you learn in kindergarden :O)

Diet update: well its Tuesday and I just couldn't do it I was hungry all the time so I am trying something new I'll replace one meal with crix and see how it goes.
Joanne and indigosoul thanks for reading my blog really like that and will check oout you blog too.

too much dry crix will choke ya girl

Blogger Scratchie said...

Solomon grundy is a semi-paste spread made from dried and processed red herring. It is fixed up kinda like a tortilla dip with seasoning and peppers.

Blogger CoolDestiny said...

I hate Solomon Gundy .. maybe because I don't eat red herring ... a real metropolitan kid I am.

That's a dangerous diet SIG. The first thing they tell you at the gym is that you have to eat properly to lose weight. Veggies, meat, water ... and exercise ... for sure.

sometimes solomon gundy can hit the spot.

crix and water sounds really severe.

Blogger Mad Bull said...

Nuh badda with that diet. You want to lose weight or life, which one? Eat right and exercise. Thats the key. Now I gotta take my own advice.

7:57 PM  
Blogger smallislandgirl said...

Yeah I really can't do it I need food for energy to do all the things I need to do and it was so boring I admire people who can starve actually hear their belly growling and ignore it to lose weight.
I wonder why they don't sell Solomon Grundy in Trini though? it sounds delicious guess I have to look for it when next I travel in the caribbean.

Its Solomon Gundy R as Scratchie typed. Nice and spicy.

ok Solomon Gundy thanks Dr.D.
