I haven't written anything here in a while because I've been on a diet. This consists chiefly of eating nothing but fruit throughout the work day and making a mild effort not to eat anything too disgusting at dinner. Today I ate a pear. It was extremely boring to eat and left a cold, sad lump in my tummy, as distantly removed from satisfaction or fullness as night from day.
Amazingly, however, it's worked and I've lost some four or five kilos and look SVELTE. My pants and I are now on much better terms. The goal of this exercise (if constant low-level hunger can be termed such) was to fit into a pimp pale grey pinstriped suit that I bought in 2006 and which received very little play due to weight gain, before the end of the "winter". Why must I fit into this suit, you ask (since after all if you're bored enough to read it you may as well continue the favour by asking questions)? No reason. Is just nice.
So...I might just convert this blog into a regular food review. People seem to like that stuff.

I hope you eat breakfast?

when 17 year old sumo wrestlers have trouble gaining weight their trainers cut out their breakfast, and like clock work they gain 20-30 pounds.

btw didn't know you still blogged.

hey, you haven't posted any reviews yet. Have you changed your mind?

Forgot I even said I was gonna do that. To be honest when I have dinner the last thing on my mind after is blogging about it. Besides, think Cairo 360 has basically cornered the market there. But I have started another, regular blog:

I have not read much on what your diet consists of but dont' skip out of lunch or starve yourself! it actually lowers your metabolism. Whenver i get hungry I EAT apples with peanut butter, or almonds or a few dates. It usually does the trick and at the same time Im increasing my metabolism but not skipping food!
