I wish I could say with some honesty that “nothing shocks me anymore”, but I can’t. This morning I found that there is still more Tay McCray-Cray going on in the world that even has potential for shocking an ole memaw like me.
In the race to shed the pounds, lose the flab, “get our skinny on”, we* grasp on to pert near anything, any promise to lose the weight with little or no effort in regards to changing our habits or our lifestyle, and thank our lucky stars that someone is out there to cater to our every want and need. Juicing, Smoothies, Shakes, Powders, Potions, Pills, Fiber (the Skinny kind), Snake Oil, Fairy Dust, don’t blame them, we want easy, peasy, now.
While there are many many diets to supply our demands on easy, peasy, now, today’s news was proof positive that there is always room for another best diet, maybe even the best diet ever. The “Yoga-Ice Cream Cleanse”
From the article:
Miller calls the product ice cream but it doesn’t actually contain milk or dairy products. The frozen treat contains “plant-based, raw coconut cream. So it is no dairy, no sugar and no soy.”
Nice, right? Only they forgot they typed that and follow that with this paragraph:
For $240, customers can indulge in five pints of ice cream per day. It translates to an intake of 1,200 calories, 70 grams of fat and more than 120 grams of sugar.
Sweet, huh? It almost made me wish that I hadn’t already lost my weight and maintained it for the past year, almost. 😉 Granted, there are probably some folks who can lose weight on it, 1200 calories a day, less than my grandkids eat daily, so yeah, call it a diet, call it the best diet, really because Paleo, Primal, Just Eating Real Whole Foods, LCHF, is just too much like work and totally fad…
Anyways, I couldn’t dwell on missing out on the best diet ever all day. I needed some steps for Walk Your A.S. Off, so I put some Pandora in my pocket and hit the bags. Non-competitive boxing nets 131 steps a minute and I got 10 minutes in, even broke a sweat. As I was ladling bone broth into pint jars, I thought about the best diet ever, only I was thinking about bone broth and boxing because I don’t need no stinkin’ diet.
