Diets that work!

100 grams = 18 kcal !!!

Perfect. I saw this yesterday and thought that it might be the ideal diet food. Every time I’ve wanted to eat during the day I had a spoon of pickled jalapeños instead. That only happened 3 times. The burn works very well to make one stop thinking about eating. I will have dinner, though. I think if I keep it up for a couple of weeks (having only one meal a day + jalapeños ) I’ll probably be thin again.

    Pickled jalapeños mixed with Fentanyl and Propofol so that you sleep for 22 hrs a day? That would work. Snoring must burn at least a few calories, no?

    I eat a lot of pickled jalapenos! I found out that I didn’t desire food so much as flavor. There is a diet entre called a “potato hack” where one eats nothing but potatos for one day (or more). No oil, or other fat used to cook them. No added salt. An essay in blandness. It also reset what I considered to be salty food and gave me a better appreciation of spices. (Almost no calories spices have! Shut up, Yoda!)

    I often eat piping hot, pickled jalapenos. Word of caution: eat too many, and they burn just as much comin’ out the other end. Ouch!

    I go through a can of pickles a week. I find that I tend to binge on salty food like chips, olives, cured meats, and especially nuts (eyeballing a pack of mixed nuts as I type) so I started drinking iced seltzer water with low-salt and a squeeze of lime to get my fix.

    Why not just pick up on the physical activity? I mean this may be obvious, but … that’s the only way I know to rev up the body’s metabolism in a sustainable way. Diets tend not to work because, well, we get hungry. And we like good food. Other tip is what Traditional Chinese Medicine says (and what Europeans are least likely to do): don’t eat after 7 pm. Body is in ‘cleanse’ mode and can’t burn what we toss in. Anyhow, good luck! xo

    I am going to try them. DO they have a vinegar type taste or a sweet taste? Hugs

      vinegary 🙂 If you like regular pickles and spice, you’ll like them.

      They’re f-ing awesome. You’ll love ’em. I buy a big jar of them, and when it’s empty, I keep it and the pickle juice and put fresh jalapenos in it to pickle them. Love it!!!

    I was surprised recently to find “0 calories” on some pickle labels. Is it true? http://www.farmersgardenvlasic.com/assets/nutr_zestyGarlicChips.jpg

      I found this:
      “The label probably says zero calories per serving, and defines a “serving” as a very small quantity (e.g. 20 grams.) Pickles are, indeed, a super low calorie snack, but not completely calorie free.

      Cucumbers are very low in calories, and nothing is added by the vinegar. Sweet pickles would have added sugar calories, but sour pickles (with no sugar) wouldn’t. No significant calories are added by the herbs and spices.

      A normal 4″ dill pickle will have around 10 calories.”

    How’s that stair climbing going?

      For me, it’s going great. I stare at the picture of those stairs every morning for 15 minutes whilst eating my donuts and bagels. So far, I’ve not lost any weight, but I’m determined to keep trying.

      Not bad. Some days I can do much more than others, today was one of them 🙂

        Don’t neglect food. If you exercise properly you will need to maintain intake to help muscles and bones. Reduce your refined sugars if you can – including bread. Eat a bit more fruit, and drink more fresh water.
        Increased muscle tone will improve body shape even if the actual weight loss does not seem that noticeable.
        Try planking as well. That will help you core muscles if you take it easy and gradually.

        Will do. And yes, I’d be perfectly happy with improved shape 🙂 + will try planking tomorrow.

    Dear god, Pinky…you’ll not only be thin, you’ll be half dead. And the weight won’t stay off. You /know/ that.
    Don’t mess with your long term health. Why not drink one less glass of whatever per day? Over the course of a year, that tiny drop in calories will reset your body to the slightly lower weight and keep it there.
    If you don’t want to be overweight by 60, that is the only way of doing it. Besides, as you age you have to make a choice between an anorexic body and an unlined face. I’d choose the face. 😀

      I agree, get too thin and wrinkles may show more. Your step climbing is a great idea, but I find, at my age, if I do a lot of exercise one day, I’m so tired the next day that all I want to do is sleep & eat unhealthy stuff.

        -sigh- Me too. There are some parts of ageing that I really resent. :/

    What are you doing about alcohol? Wine’s my weakness and the source of way too many empty calories. Arrrgh!

    This is practical and funny. I’m a huge fan of pickled jalapenos, or cauliflower hot mixes. I just did a review on Hydroxycut and I’m willing to bet a developed version of this idea could be a much healthier option than that.
