Kernel Seasons

Posted by Trixter on January 14, 2006

Note to other computer nerds trying to lose weight:  If it weren’t for Kernel Season’s Gourmet Popcorn Seasonings, I probably would have gained back all the weight I’ve lost by now.  Un-buttered no-oil hot-air popped popcorn goes from styrofoam to delicious using this stuff.

Kursing Krispy Kreme

Posted by Trixter on January 14, 2006

Krispy Kreme is hell on earth for people who are dieting. Their stores are everywhere, a dozen glazed donuts is about $6.50 (relatively cheap, all things considering), and you get a free donut just for walking in the store. Melissa brought home a mixed dozen and I ate two of them. Dammit dammit dammit!

Usually I treat the weekend as a few days to be somewhat lax with my eating — I won’t hit McDonald’s or anything, but I will have kettle (sweetened) popcorn instead of just regular popcorn, or I’ll eat a bowl of cereal for breakfast instead of a slimfast shake, etc. But having those two donuts just threw me out of wack; it wasn’t even that enjoyable eating them (probably because I haven’t had that much sugar/fat since the first of the month).

One dozen glazed Krispy Kreme donuts is 2400 calories. So the 400 I ate may not seem like much, but it is when you’re trying to limit yourself to 1200-1500 a day and not collapse from malnutrition. Anyway, hopefully I was good enough throughout the week that it won’t affect the weigh-in tomorrow.
