Going the GM way!!

Ain't buying no car!

Am going the GM way - DIET!

I'm sick of looking at clothes taking up space in my cupboard and never, ever, seeing the light of day! Its horrendous to not be able to go out and get some 'retail therapy'-clotheswise, on your bday when your best friends take you shopping! Ever wonder why is it that they make only horrid lookin clothes in larger sizes? Ones with nooo imagination, terrible, awful colours ?? Its like the retail world is punishing us (large women - large men don't face 1/4 as much problem) for not being "pleasing on the eye"!
Man someone should shoot the guys at Allen Sully (:P) - Their XL can barely fit a size 4 ! Are only petite women supposed to wear corporate wear?!?

Enough of the rant, going back to GM - lots of friends have been recommending this diet for a few years now... a recent chat with a nutritionist friend made me wanna try..

This program is designed for a target weight loss of 5-6 Kgs. per week - you can see righttt away why I am signing up!;). It will also improve your attitude and emotions because of its systematic cleansing effects. The effectiveness of this seven day plan is that the foods eaten burn more calories than they give to the body in caloric value. This plan can be used as often as you like to without any fear of complications. It is designed to flush your system of impurities and give you a feeling of well being. After seven days you will begin to feel lighter by atleast 10 pounds. You will have an abundance of energy and an improved disposition.

During the first seven days you must drink 10 glasses of water each day.

All fruits except bananas. Your first day will consists of all fruits you want. It is suggested you consume lost of watermelon and cantaloupe.

All vegetables. You are encouraged to eat until you are stuffed with all the new and cooked vegetables of your choice. There is no limit on the account or type. Avoid oil and coconut while cooking vegetables. Have large boiled potato for breakfast.

Any mixture of fruits and vegetables of your choice. Any amount, any quantity. No bananas yet and no potatoes today.

Bananas and milk. Today you will eat as many as eight bananas and drink three glasses of milk. You can also have I bowl of vegetables soup.

Today is a feast day. You will eat 1 cup of rice. You also have to eat six whole tomatoes and drink 12 glasses of water today to cleanse your system of the excess uric acid you will be producing.

Today is another all vegetables day. You must eat 1 cup of rice today and eat all the vegetables you want cooked and uncooked to your hears content.

Today your food intake will consist of 1 cup rice, fruit juice and the vegetables you care to consume. Tomorrow morning you will be five to eight kgs. lighter than 1 week ago. If you desire further weight loss, repeat the program again. Repeat the program as often as you like, however, it is suggested that you rest for three days before every repetition.

----- thats the poa for the next 6 days - today is day one :)

If interested you can find the full page here

Also of note is the -


The following soup is intended as a supplement to your diet. It can be eaten any time of the day in virtually unlimited quantities. You are encouraged to drink large quantities of this soup.

23 oz water

06 large onions

02 green peppers

03 whole tomatoes

1 cabbage

1 bunch celery - add herbs and seasoning as desired.

--- since I'm currently in India, celery is going to be a problem - wonder if i can substitute it with something... carrots? Probably not - interesting fact bout celery - apparently burns more calories to eat and digest it than it has! NEGATIVE calories - now thats the kinda food I should eat!
(only trouble is unless someone figures out a way to make pizzas and pani puri - amongst a host of things - that ain't gonna work long term for me!)

Have motivated a bunch of friends who are all doing this with me, if you wanna join us - drop me a line - email at the top left conner :)


p.s : OK news flash - apparently the diet I am following and posted here was "tweaked" for India - the original appears here! A delight for non veggi I'm sure (though I dunno bout the more "Hindu" non veg eaters) :( - I am going to go with a spinach and panner/tofu substitute for the beef! YAY Palak paneer!

What the...
..hell doesn't cut it.
...bl**dy hell doesn't either.
...nor f*ck.

India's airports get orders to arrest Shilpa on arrival.

Shilpa can't leave Mumbai as there is a look-out notice at all airports to detain her for the case against the Richard Gere kissing episode.
--- The above two lines are straight outta Mumbai Mirror
Can it get more ridiculous?
He kissed her on the cheek.
IN _INDIA_ - a democratic country (or is that a myth?) - If she doesn't have a problem how can anyone else?!
This is all in such poor, poor, poor taste.
Seriously people, grow up! Ours didn't exactly become the most populace country by holding hands!!

Today was Maharashtra day - which translates to HOLIDAY!

Amchi Mumbai (I _know_ I always say it will be only Bombay for me - this is different) is reallly turning up the temperature this year!

Hey you... you there...

...yes, you…you look good enough to eat! :D (or at least that’s what 5th month ol sonali thought after one look at me!)

A lil kid…an over size girl / woman...a crowded train...late at night...love at first sight! (ok lick?!) ;)

Was traveling to ‘south Bombay’ - to begin my many part goodbye to the city I am crazy about. * sniff * . We (friends and yours truly, not the lil darling!) :) went for a leisurely dinner at a swanky joint - its great to have friends who are _NOT_ thrilled with the idea of you leaving! After dinner we went for a mid-night stroll along marine drive – its _beautiful_ - I recommend it, highly! I don’t quite know what it is about the place – makes you wanna throw your arms wide open and claim things impossibly crazy things!
I cannot believe I will be living in India but not Bombay! I truly, truly belong here.

OOOooo btw, I turned a year older and wiser this month (alright alright, I have my doubts on the wiser too! :D ) I’m officially 27 now. Gosh, that sounds positively middle aged! Wait a min, it IS positively middle aged! But hey, age is just a number, right?! Right!
Lots of gal-pals came over..we had a fabulous time (pillow fights and 4 am talks et all) was taken shopping – for everything from shoes to ahem-unmentionables – really nice stuff! Have even managed to start saving up for numero uno on my wish list! (not to mention being surprised witless by flowers from CALIFORNIA! thank-you you) Then an awesome dinner at a newly opened Thai joint...and some more over night partying (nice to have a bday on the weekend!) :)

Have taken up swimming recently (very recently - ain't no svelte-sylphlike-swimmer! yet!!) want to learn playing the guitar – will look that up fairly soon and plan on re-joining the gym! Life is good!!

Oh yea, I’ve to take the GMAT.

Sigh. ;)
