All about Fajitas on ‘f’ day

Posted on by 0 comment

I was planning on eating lots of different ‘f’ items, but when push came to shove, all I did was get a steak fajita for lunch and a chicken fajita for dinner.  The point of the diet is supposed to make me branch out into foods I wouldn’t normally eat – and granted I definitely would not have had fajitas yeterdayt – but getting two things back-to-back is not my idea of variety.  Hope to do it better today.

D is typically one of the harder days. I’m going to try to go with donuts and dim-sum today.  I’m able to at least get it started right

C’ing My Way Through Lunch

Posted on by 0 comment

I go to the burrito place Illegal Pete’s almost every day for a buritto bowl.  That worked for me yesterday, but I wasn’t sure what to do with myself for today.  So, i went with a lunch that was:

  • Carnitas
  • Corn
  • Cheese
  • Chips

That seemed to be about right.  Of course, it wasn’t that good – but nobody said dieting is easy.

‘S’ is one of the better days

I love eating on ‘S’ days. The amount of things you can eat is great and not just bad things. You can have steaks, salami, spinach, sweet potato fries and more. What a glorious day.

As the diet winds down, I’m finally able to get some waffles on ‘W’ day. One thing that’s becoming clear is that this “diet” is not actually a good way to lose weight.

Minding My P’s and Q’s

Posted on by 1 comment

The P day was ridiculously great. With pizza, potatoes, pasta and others, the ‘P’ day is a breeze. As you can see, I really went for the pizza.

The next day (today) has been a fun day with the Q’s. People generally assume that there’s nothing out there to eat for the Q’s. Thankfully the Quesadilla has solved that problem for me. There are so many kinds, flavors and sizes that i could go a whole week on the Quesadilla diet (hmm – not a bad idea).

Now the weekend of R and S’s might be tough. I’ll let you know how it goes

The N’s Are Tough

I woke up the morning of the N’s in a panic.  What was I going to eat?  Besides nectarines, which i hate, the list was short and not that attractive.   It became even harder when I had some business lunches scheduled.  You can see in the video below how I was forced into alcohol and nacho’s for lunch:

While lunch was tough, dinner was much easier thanks to Kita and the Murdock family.   The ‘N’ day happened to coincide with Toby’s birthday.  They invited me over for the celebration and, amazingly, had prepared a fully N-balanced meal.  We had a main dish of Noodles and a dessert of Neapolitan ice cream.  I’m quite blessed to have friends who will accomodate such madness.

M was a Magnificent Day

Posted on by 0 comment

I really loved my ‘M’ day.  I missed breakfast and went straight into lunch. I was planning on a Meatball Sub, but surprisingly the sandwich store i went to (Salvaggio’s) didn’t have one.   But they did have Mortadella meat so i got a Mortadella sandwich with mayo, mustard and mozerella cheese.  It was pretty damn delicious

For dinner, I also had a fantastic meal.  I went with meatloaf and mashed potatoes.  Glorious.

Recap of G, H, I, J Days

Posted on by 0 comment

So it’s been a rough couple of days. I’m not going to lie, this diet can be really inconvenient.

The ‘G’ day was rough – not because i couldn’t find any food but rather because i did a “Grinder” for both lunch and dinner. Having Ginger Ale was nice though. It was a rough day, but not the worst of the week. You can see the pic of my grinder and ginger ale to the right

My ‘H’ day wasn’t much better as i did a ham sandwiches and halibut. It wasn’t that bad, but i didn’t have that many options.

Things got real tough when ‘I’ came around. Not only is it one of the hardest days, but I was traveling during it. When you can’t control your surroundings, the alphabet diet is almost impossible. I managed to get an Italian sub for lunch but struggled to find anything for dinner. I finally broke down and had some Indian Food. I know it’s not legit, but a brother has to eat – and i was starving.

This morning, Nader informed me of a huge mistake. If i was going to break on the ‘I’ day, i could have broken with some In-N-Out. Crap! If only I had thought of that yesterday.

I’m now getting started with the ‘J’ day. I had some juice this morning to get going and am looking forward to some jambalaya later today. Any other suggestions of what i should have?

I had some great French Toast this morning and a Fajita for lunch.  It’s been a great monday so far – foodwise that is.   We were talking of Fondue tonight.  Any other suggestions?
