Some time ago I was the subject of some unduly harsh criticism of my general ranking as a Significant Other after Instagramming evidence that I was about to serve the Mr a weight watchers esque fake pizza for dinner. A weight watchers esque fake pizza with mange tout on it. I will defend myself as […]Read More The Skinny Thing: Pizza Tortillas
Did everyone see that rather brilliant long read By Bee Wilson in the Guardian this week about the rise and (arguable) demise of the clean eating phenomenon? It is a very well written and astute commentary around current attitudes to lifestyle, the evils of social media and the assumed right to violently defend a factually […]Read More Are You Going to Eat…..Quark?
It’s been a bit of a week on the diet front, where various employment obligations and personal weaknesses have meant living off of a staple feed of severely low effort food that was either cooked by someone else or merely assembled then covered with cheese in my kitchen. I’ve been busy and knackered and in […]Read More The Skinny Thing: Oven Fried Chicken
Does anyone know a fat vegan? You’re sniggering now and waiting for the punchline but really, I want to know. Do you know an un-skinny (long term) vegan? I thought I did once, but she was forced to correct me with a wry smile when I found her demolishing a burger at a food festival […]Read More The Skinny Thing: Calling All Fat Vegans.
Some time in November I told of my dip into the WW world of pointed dieting. It’s been, well, irritating and effective in more or less equal measures. My progress in weight loss terms has been slow but generally in the right direction despite that pesky business of Christmas the misery month of January and […]Read More The Skinny Thing- Four Months of Weight Watchers
Following recent dietary requirements and a constant glut of the superfood-that-we-aren’t-allowed-to-call-a-superfood-anymore Kale recipes, I have had several bashes at making my own kale chips at home. They are pretty simple to do, though you have to pay attention, and make a fine addition to any nibbles plate or weekend sports observation table. If, like […]Read More Easy Kale Chips
I came up with this frankly brilliant dinner whilst trying to research a weight watchers friendly dish that I could feed to guests on a Friday night without violating the Geneva convention. One serving will set you back maybe 7 smart points or if you are on no count method no more than 3 of […]Read More The Skinny Thing- Spicy Pilaf
Weight watchers. Haven’t I slammed them recently? Don’t I hate commercialised weight loss plans? Yeah, I do, in a way. I understand weight loss science and the evil psychology of effective marketing. I also need to lose more weight. I’m also a begrudging fan of Elliot Hulse. Who? Elliot Hulse: Relentlessly in your face former […]Read More The Skinny Thing- Weight Watchers
I have to say I started penning this post on the Sunday afternoon of the end of my no added sugar challenge with every intention of a rum and coke and a slice of vienetta and no regrets about not seeing it through to the turn of the week at midnight. It didn’t quite work […]Read More NAS Challenge- the summary
It’s a not-much-to-report-day today. General happiness of payday and important and absorbing business of talking sh*t with friends made the morning fly by without snack breakdowns and staying on the no added sugar waggon has been easy. I came in to work armed with all the right things today- big lunch salad and small bit […]Read More NAS Challenge Day 5
