Atkins for Alkies: Part Deux

Dresden Dolls... MY Alcoholic Friends

Atkins for Alkies and
My Alcoholic Friends

So I just found out that my favorite snack was FULL of carbs. Sugar Free popsicles.
THOSE BASTARDS.
These were the generic type. The REAL Popsicle brand has more.

The ‘Atkins’ special ice cream bars –labeled exactly that way by Bryers- have 9 carbs.
Bad. Bad Carbs.
Do not allow a neurotic bi (polar) woman on a diet and expect anything but a strict and obsessive adherence to said regimen.

I’d say that this is the reason I haven’t been losing weight for 2 days. The popsicles. But it’s probably the thirteen grains of rice and 6 refried beans that I got at the Mexican restaurant Saturday.
Bastards wouldn’t just give me the meat and separate the carb portion on to my companion’s plate.

So just for YOU. My Alcoholic Friends. Is a way to absolve yourselves. And feel better about the 2 days you go without booze.
Wait 2 days? Didn’t I say three days in the first post?
Oh well.

Anyway for your perusal and enjoyment… carbs in your favorite Tasty Beverage. Cheers!

We’ll start with a Reno fave…

GIN:
Serving: a shot
Calories: 110
Carbs: 0

BEER:

Serving: A bottle
Calories: 150
Fat: 0
Carbs: 15 G (waaaah)

WINE:

Serving: 3.5 oz (WTF there are only 4 glasses in a bottle)
Calories: 70
Carbs: 2 G

RUM:

Serving: A shot
Calories: 100
Carbs: 0 (this is weird because it’s so sweet)

Seems the worst is beer. Sad because there are so many homemade and craft beers available these days.

So my fatty friends all I can tell you is to give up the seemingly great sugar free popsicles and take up alcoholism. Not only will you lose weight faster but hell, you won’t even remember not eating.
It’s okay. Thank me when you hit that AA meeting. In your Size 2 dress.

Look for tomorrow’s Blog:

Atkins for Alkies -Or- How To Lose 10 Pounds in Under a Month

Lose Weight The YoYodyne Way!

Welcome chubbies, chubbettes, fatties, drunkards and of course my family which is monitoring my every move. Wait. That’s the government.

Gimme a chance to adjust the tinfoil. Okay we’re good now. So Chubby. Let’s talk.

Don’t want to give up wine or gin totally? Can no longer ski or exercise as much due to a physical disability? I have great news for you!

Make a few adjustments and TA DA!  Lose 10 pounds in less than a month. We will pay you to lose weight! No. Not really.

Here’s how you do it!

1.      No fucking exercises –unless your Physical Terrorist prescribes it for your back. Trust me it burns zero calories

2.      Eat ONLY meats (red meat, chicken, fish, pork) and green veggies. -shudder-

3.      4 oz of cheese max a day (as much of the Kraft Parmesan for seasoning as you want though)

4.      Eat as MUCH as you can stand. I fucking hate celery but am eating it with cream cheese.

5.      DRINK a half gallon of wine or gin every 3 days or whenever the diet starts to really piss you off

6.      No sugar, bread, popcorn, wheat, potatoes, etc

7.      Okay if you can exercise then go for it. I miss the long walks

I do not recommend this diet for everyone. Hell, if you need to lose 5 or 10 pounds you’re just freaking vain.

If you need to lose 30+ pounds though it works pretty dammed well. No paying for ‘pre-planned meals’, no hours at the gym picking up e-coli from the Stairmaster. Best of all… you can have a damned cocktail every so often.

It’s the ‘Induction’ portion of the Atkins diet but with Tasty Beverages added.  And it works as well as the original!

If you were one of the cool kids who called me fatso, kicked me out of softball and the sandbox then stop reading right now. Piss off. If I could hire you to clean the San Francisco Greyhound Bus Station Women’s Room with your toothbrush I would. Damned economy prevents me from fulfilling many wishes.

Anyway, I have tried every diet known to mankind:

Weight Watchers at age 11: middle aged women pointing out every square in the quilt they’d knitted to denote a pound lost. Uhhhh. was already listening to Diamond Dogs by Bowie. Freaking knitted afghans?

Jenny Craig in my 30’s: Great deal! Nice people, a few walks around the block a day, kind help every day of the week. Cool! Until they told me the cost of their ‘special food.’

Mushroom Diet: Remember that gross thing with fungus in a Tupperware and you were supposed to drink the juice from this crap? Ugh. Early 90’s hell.

In my mid 20’s and early 30’s I also had a fine cocaine diet (er, habit) while living in NYC.  Kept the weight off. Also had a CLEAN damned house. Hey it was the 80’s, it was the law back then.

Then I got married (ex-husband Number One), had a daughter, sat at a desk all day…. to once again find myself a  fatty.

Let’s face it. If any diet actually worked then NO ONE would be fat.

So try the YoYo-Dyne Way! Eat and Drink your way to American Apparel and stop spending all of your cash over at Omar The Tent Maker.

Bon appetite!
