Let’s start this week with a tip.
MizFit is discovering how snarky she truly is as I mosied (moseyed?) on over to this article pretty much for the sole purpose o’mocking it.
I mean seriously—-what would you have thought would make better mockage than a piece on (FQ) Belly Flattening Foods (unFQ).
Alas, I was wrong. The foods are all things which —-while MizFit does scratch her head at the phrase belly flattening—-are great for you and should be in all of our daily food consumptions regardless.
If they end up flattening the belly along the way, then it’s just the flax sprinkling on the proverbial cake.
Definitely worth taking the time to check out.
Convinced you’re too busy? Here’s a taste: almonds, avocado, and sunflower seeds (who knew?).
Next is a trend Im not too sure about.
By means of full disclosure MizFit loves the texting.
Which is actually surprising given the fact that I neither hath the command of the lingo (OMG! I know.) nor do I have any clue how to text on a PHONE.
Sidekick? Full qwerty keyboard? Im good to go. (the true sign of being old, I realize)
That said, even with my love of the immediacy of texting admitted—-I think this one is too much.
What do you do? Essentially you text the food you’re about to consume (or is this supposed to be during the menu perusal phase? in the ladies room during a date? who can say.) to the number given and they text you BACK the calorie count, fat, carb and protein.
Obsess about food much?
You can also go to the website and see, at any given moment, what *other* people are texting in & asking about (in the men’s room. during their date.).
On weight watchers ? Text them the food and they’ll text you back with the points.
(the points thing might be helpful. any weight watchers people out there?)
What do you think, Mizfits?
Too much? Being an informed consumer?
For some reason the entire thing seems sort of like something you’d try and hide as you were doing it.
Something Julia Louis Dreyfus* would attempt to execute on a first date and, inevitably, hilarity would ensue.
*please to make this my public proclamation both of my love for her and the fact that if anything ever happens to me Renaissance Man is encouraged to hunt her down and nuptualize her.
