Odds and Ends

January 19, 2010

Chipping away at that little weight gain on her last Weight Watchers visit, Bunny lost 1.2 lbs this week.  She’s still keeping her food diary…most of the time.

The Nutrition Diva has recently been discussing topics close to Bunny’s situation. This one is called Why We Overeat? It talks about how visual and environmental cues affect weight loss, and the simple fact that hunger often has nothing to do with eating.

The Nutrition Diva also talks about low-carb diets. Buff lost nearly 200 lbs. on a low-carb diet, and Bunny lost a boatload as well, but she moved away from it because she just didn’t think it was a great idea never to eat fruit.

Bunny likes fruit.

She found a nutritionist who worked fruit into her diet. She was successful for a while, and then the nutritionist inadvertently disturbed the restful repose of Bunny’s eating monster. Blink, size 20.

She doesn’t like fruit THAT much.

Anyway, the Nutition Diva has another one about how much protein you should eat. Bunny always wonders about that as she scoops whey protein powder into her morning shake.

Finally, the Diva references a book called Mindless Eating by Brian Wansink that sounds interesting. More reading for us to do.

OK, enough free plugs for Quick and Dirty Tips. We found a couple of blog posts that provide particularly cogent advice.

Our friends at CrankyFitness posted a great article on willpower, which in turn referred us to a post at Escape from Obesity about split-second decisions.

Bunny enjoyed these posts, and more importantly, felt motivated by them.

Anybody who motivates Bunny is OK in our book.
