My fantasy dude: Mr. Potato Head


A couple of weeks ago, Dr. Yoni Freedhoff, a weight specialist, told me if I wanted to lose weight faster, I’d have to start keeping a food diary.

This made no sense to me. Consciously, I have been keeping track of every bleeding calorie from the time I get up until the time I go to bed. That’s because I always have the same things for breakfast and lunch, then switch it up for dinner.

Really, I cheat at dinner and that’s where all my problems arise.

Today, I decided to take Dr. Freedhoff’s advice because I can’t stop thinking about potatoes.

Any kind of potato, even Lays potato chips which are my all time favorite bad snack food.

I had Scott’s boffo potato salad for lunch and I’m thinking of asking him to do twice baked potatoes.

It is an unrealistic request, I know.

But I just can’t stop thinking about them.

I began to fantasize that I was Mrs. Potato Head hoping for some bangers and mash when the husband got home.

Clearly, it was time for a reality check.

I found this interesting site which not only helps you log your food and calories, but it also does an analysis of the stuff you’ve been stuffing into your gob.

So far so good on the calorie front today, I discovered, though I’m sorely lacking on carbs and fibre. A few vitamins went missing, too.

What is great about this site is it also allows you to track your exercise regime and measure its effectiveness against your food intake and adjust everything to help you lose weight.

Today, I did 500 calories at the gym — so I felt that was worth something — but it doesn’t mean I can have mashed taters for dessert!

Anyway, I thought you might like to check it out.

We’re having chicken for dinner, maybe some asparagus, leftover chickpea and artichoke salad, and peaches, peaches, peaches.

I don’t understand how I can eat a bushel of peaches and not have enough fibre.

Believe you me, if you eat as many peaches as I have over the last three days, constipation is not a worry.

I’ll let you know how it all goes.
