Cravings

So I'm on the second week of Fat Flush and the cravings I have demonstrate just how unsophisticated a person I am.

1. Lofthouse Cookies. Since my sons went out on their own, my husband and I have developed an unhealthy obsession with grocery store cookies, in particular those soft iced cookies from Lofthouse. I just looked up the nutritional information; do you know ONE of these cookies has 190 calories!? I usually eat a minimum of four at a sitting! (Thus the Fat Flush.) Another great grocery store cookie is Meijer's Sugar Cookies. We usually buy one container of each.

2. Powdered Donuts. When my husband and I were in college and our son was a baby, on Saturday mornings we used to buy powdered donuts, our neighbors would come over, and we would all lay on our pulled-out sofa bed eating the donuts and watch PeeWees Playhouse. Everytime I see them in the grocery store, I think about how delicious they are with a tall glass of cold milk and I know I could eat the whole bag, as long as the milk held out.

3. Dairy Queen Midnight Truffle Blizzard. They advertise this all the time on television recently, and it absolutely kills me.

4. Communion Bread. Last weekend during communion, my husband and I (we joked later) were wickedly tempted to grab the host/loaf from the pastor's hands and run down the aisle with it a la Jean Valjean, knawing voraciously on its delicious carbs.

5. Cupcakes. Preferably Red Velvet with rich cream cheese frosting but I'd settle happily for the Hostess variety. But I'd want more than two!

6. Any dessert from Babalu, which sells "desserts as big as your head!" When I lived in Santa Monica, I'd run over just before going to bed and select an enormous slice of pie to ensure sweet dreams.

The Lofthouse cookies are shockingly dangerous! I don't usually eat cookies from the grocery store, but someone brought these into work once and it was a disaster. I can't tell you how many I ate.

I saw your comment on my blog about the unsweetened cranberry juice and let me tell you, that stuff is vile! I've also been drinking it but not for the same reasons as you. I've had 3(!!) UTIs with this pregnancy, thus the cranberry juice. I love tart things, but that takes the cake!

Hoping your fat flush is over soon!

Congratulations on your stamina. I think you might feel better if you read the label for the Hostess cupcakes...they contain BEEF fat. I haven't touched them since I found out.

FORGET IT! You dont need to get rid of any fat or anything else. You are only a year to PARIS....
You have to build up your tolerances...

Check out the "Bedlam of Beefy" blog listed on my bloglist and see HIS cupcake photos....you will DIE.

I can't resist the desserts at Babalu either! Whenever I go there for lunch or dinner I try very hard to eat a salad or fish. And then the waiter appears at the end of the meal and asks if I would like some dessert. I look at whomever I'm dining with for a brief moment and then say no... only to bring the waiter back one minute later to take my order. I try so hard but cannot resist! I feel your pain :(

Oh my goodness, I wish I could get my hands on some of those Lofthouse cookies! They must be a northern thing. Look yummy!!!

I'm glad that I don't know anything about Lofthouse cookies.

Reading this post, I realize that I've probably known you for about a year . . . because your Fatflush diet was one of the first things that I read of yours last year!

p.s. You have moved a lot! Which place is your favorite?
