Coconut oil and other things

Saturday, April 26, 2014

I like to read my old blogs and refresh my thoughts on dieting. This is an old one but it's relative because I'm taking coconut oil now.

OK, you guys know by now how weird I am so I might as well tell you that I have a book called "The Coconut oil Miracle". Coconut oil is supposed to help you to lose weight, prevents heart disease, cancer and diabetes. It strengthens the immune system and beautifies the skin and hair. As you know I'm ready to try anything new in search of the magic potion. Well, you think Olive oil is revolting, just try eating coconut oil. It looks a lot like lard only softer but the texture is more than I can handle. That's saying a lot because I'd try most anything to lose weight. Now I believe that it is all that, but can't get past the texture. I also tried the diet that you download online and it coughs up different diets based on your selections and it lasts for 11 days and you are supposed to lose 9 lbs. Well let me tell you that you will lose weight on it but not 9 lbs in 11 days and I found it too tedious and too long in length to stay on that restrictive a diet. If I remember right it's mostly low carb but I hated to print my diet out for 11 days and have to keep to it to the letter. I'd print it out and put it on the counter by the frig and cross the foods off one by one. I've tried Seth Roberts Shangra-la diet which is where I got the Olive oil theory but doing only that is not going to make me thin. It does however have other benefits. Enough benefits to down my two tablespoons every morning. Then there is the Sugar Buster diet which is good in theory and after JUDDD I probably could do it but at the time I couldn't stick with it. Yes, there is the lemon detox diet and the cabbage soup diet and once I even considered an all hard boiled egg diet but didn't carry through because I thought my health would suffer from not eating a variety of things. Every little thing that they say makes you lose faster I have tried. Guar Gum, pectin, kelp always looking for a quick fix. I even thought of the rice diet because if that's all you eat and it isn't salted you surely wouldn't overeat, but there's the one dimensional diet again. I wonder why there couldn't be a Mexican Food diet that would work, that would suit me just fine. Or a pizza diet, although I'd probably tire of that soon. Maybe a pizza and ice cream diet. I could do that. Well, I've finally stopped looking for the magic bullet because I've found the ultimate diet that I can live with and it's called JUDDD. Or even better, low carb JUDDD..Now, on to the exercise...

    I'm not familiar with the JUDDD diet. I just try to eat healthy most of the time - fresh meat fish/meat/veggies/fruit/seeds/nuts, healthy fats. Cut out the junk food, sugar, wheat, processed foods, etc.
