I have wind!


Not grammatically correct but who cares. I got my own Empire black MSI Wind today and posting this on it. It has XP Home right now and I don’t have the time to dual-boot this machine but I would assume that this little baby will sport a Hardy Heron before the week ends. 🙂

The picture is in my phone and its already late but let me just savor the gloating by a little bit before I go back into the reality that I need to go to work tomorrow. 🙂


Day 1: GM diet update

No Comments

I opted to write the update on the next day to give my body enough time to process what it has been tortured subjected in the previous day. The diet assumes that the maximum amount of weight that can be lost on the first day is 3 pounds. Our rusty err trusty weighing scale said that I am below 200lbs. I couldn’t see clearly but I think it was at 2 pounds but I would say that losing 1 pound is a safe and conservative bet.

Yesterday I had the craving to eat rice in the morning since I just had a pear. I went to the Robinson’s Pioneer grocery during lunch time and bought some grapes for our dinner and a couple of apples. I also found the cut portions (those that are already near the end of the ripe stage 😉 ) and bought a pack of watermelon, a pack of pineapples, and a pack of turnips. The pre-cut packs only cost me around 50 pesos. I ended up having the watermelon and half of the pineapples for lunch before I was subjected to a sequence of long meetings. At night (during the drive home) my wife was giving me grapes and I finished half of the turnips. It would have been sweet if I wasn’t munching on the turnip strips like a rabbit.

As I have stated in the bitesize posting, the day is pretty much not as painful as the first time I tried the diet. I am off to day 2!

Post Day 1: Weighed in at 199lbs. Not feeling super but not deprived either.

General Motors Diet for Day 2

All vegetables. You are encouraged to eat until you are stuffed with all the raw or cooked vegetables of your choice. There is no limit on the amount or type. For your complex carbohydrate, you will start day two with a large baked potato for breakfast. You may top the potato with one pat of butter.

How and Why it works

Starts with a fix of complex carbo-hydrates coupled with an oil dose. This is taken in the morning for energy and balance. The rest of day two consists of vegetables which are virtually calorie free and provide essential nutrients and fibre.



Day 2 mid-day update

All vegetables. Unfortunately only ‘ampalay’ or bitter gourd is available in the cafeteria. I ordered two servings with instruction to minimize the pork amount in the serving. It was expectedly bitter but what the heck, I have to eat.

Hopefully the vegetable viands tomorrow will be better.
