Tell Atkins to Kiss My Ass

I think I sort of decided to go in a different direction, in regard to losing weight and all. I just can’t do Atkins anymore. Now, don’t get me wrong. Atkins works. I lost 50 pounds on Atkins once. And like a bunch of other people, I put that weight right back on. Unlike those other people, though, I don’t have a problem with telling you that I gained that weight back by eating a bunch of junk.
The problem with Atkins now is that I’ve ground out weight loss before on Atkins, and I’ll tell anybody that it works. But I’m burned out on it. I can’t stay on that program at all. Not for any length of time. I mean, hell, I’ve been eating the same old same old for almost three years now. And it’s not working for me anymore, because I just can’t stay on it. I’m sick of it.
There are a number of ways to lose weight. We all know what they are. As much as we might like there to be some magic pill or special diet, the fact of the matter is that it comes down to limiting your caloric intake and exercising. Believe it or not, that’s exactly what I have in mind. Not dieting. Just eating healthy for once in my life.
To that end, Victoria and I took a trip to a health food store near the house called Rollin’ Oats. I liked the place the moment I walked in the door. It has a great energy. What that is I can’t exactly say, but I really liked the place. We went there because I wanted to buy some tofu to experiment with. I’ve honestly considered vegetarianism. Or least taking a few steps in that direction. I know, I know. Going from Atkins to vegetarianism is a bit of a contrast, but I like contrast. So there.
I also bought a bottle of beer called Old Heathen Imperial Stout. How could I possibly pass up a dark beer called “Old Heathen”? It was pretty good, too. I won’t get into all the snoot-speak about what kind of finish it had or anything. It was a dark beer with a nice, very interesting flavor. I’m sure I’ll be buying it again.
Yeah, yeah. I know. I bought tofu and beer and the same time. That means I’m eclectic or something. At least this time I’m not sitting on my Soloflex drinking beer and smoking a cigarette.
