Kirstie Alley: Stuck In a Fat Suit?

KICKOL-LOGO.jpgKirstie Alley is, once again, appearing on Oprah today discussing her 85 pound weight gain. What does Our Lady of Weight Loss and Janice Taylor have to say about this weighty matter? Plenty!
Kirstie Alley: Stuck In a Fat Suit?
Losing a substantial amount of weight and gaining it back is very (let me say that again … VERY …) depressing. I know, because I’ve done it. Several times. And I also know what it feels like to permanently remove that excess (50 pounds gone for almost 8 years!). There is a sense of freedom, of self-acceptance, of peace that exceeds words.
And so, I write this column from a place of knowledge, as a weight loss coach, an expert in the field and as someone who walks the talk.
As I listened to Kirstie Alley declare (once again) on Oprah, “I ‘m nuts … seriously.” “I’m a brat.” “I’m careless and irresponsible.” “It is about wearing a bikini.” “I’m going to be ripped by November.” “Okay February.” … I thought to myself, “Wow, she sure is setting herself up for failure. Again.”
And when Oprah said, “Can you believe that you are [we are] talking about this again?” I thought, “Good question, O!, Why are you talking about it again? Why is Kirstie exposing herself yet again to the scrutiny of the public eye, the ridicule?”
Kirstie then went on to say that she has spent the past 1.5 years, while gaining back every single pound lost on Jenny Craig plus an additional 10 pounds, “researching what is missing” from diet plans.
Kirstie further stated that she would start up her own weight-loss brand, even though it was “sort of crazy … We’re in the middle of a recession, and I decide, yes, I’m going to create my own business … I’m going to lose 80 pounds … I’m going to be in a bikini again.”
Was the appearance on Oprah a set-up? Are we now going to watch Kirstie get ‘thin’ again, so she can sell us her bill of goods?
Whether Kirstie loses it or not, I can pretty much guarantee that she is going to ‘find’ it again, because weight loss is primarily a mind set that comes from your belief systems; it’s about internal change. It’s about self-love and acceptance. Kirstie’s words, thought process, affect, sense of self appears not to have changed, moved, shifted, not even one tiny, little bit.
Kirstie, if you want to join the ‘permanent fat removal’ club, you’ve got to change your thinking. The bikini is not the prize. Loving yourself is.

The Sweet Borscht Cure: End sugar cravings

Our Lady of Weight Loss - Sweet Borscht CureBorscht is a culinary favorite in many Central and European countries. Its main ingredient – the sugar beet – can easily satisfy your sweet tooth.
Beets have the highest sugar content of any vegetable, and they are low in calories. Only 75 per cup! Could it be that this simple recipe from the Our Lady of Weight Loss kitchens is the secret ingredient to your weight loss success?
Before I share Our Lady of Weight Loss’s Righteous SWEET BEET BORSCHT Recipe, here follows some interesting information about beets!
Sweet Beet
The beets we eat are called red beets, root beets and/or table beets. They are a root vegetable and both their root (the beet) and their leaves (the greens) are edible. They are grown in more than 30 states and are available throughout the year, although their peak season is June through October. In other words, your beets are peaking now baby!
Small, young beets (about 1-1/2 in. diameter) are best because they are tender little things and cook up faster than their tough, woody cored chubby (over 2 in. diameter) counterparts.
Beets should be smooth, hard, round and a deep red color, as well as blemish free. The taproot, the part that extends from the bulbous part of the beet, should be slender. If you are planning on eating the greens, be sure that they are small, crisp and dark green, measuring no more 8 inches. Nor should they be limp or yellowed. (Wow, that’s a lot to remember.)
And one more thing … Never and I mean never cut or peel them before cooking in liquid, lest they will ‘bleed’ and turn a very unappetizing brown. You may, however, scrub them gently and rinse.
To Bake: Wrap beets in foil, place in baking pan and bake in a 350 degree F to 400 degree F oven until soft (1 1/2 to 2 hours). Unwrap foil and let them stand until cool enough to hand, then peel.
To Boil: Some of the color and nutrients may be lost in the boiling process, but this is the most common way to cook beets. Place beets in a pot of boiling water, cover, and simmer until the beets are just tender (40 minutes to 1 1/2 hours, depending on size and quantity of beets).
To Steam: Place beets in a vegetable steamer over boiling water (approximately 40 minutes).
To Microwave: Place about one pound of whole beets in a microwavable dish with 1/4 cup liquid. Cover and cook on high until tender (10 minutes or so).
AND NOW!!! … A one pot wonder from the Our Lady of Weight Loss Kitchen

Lemon Angel: Healing Elixir from Heaven

Click to Mix and Solve
What do you do when life hands you lemons? Make lemonade? How about something more imaginative, exotic? With or without the Absolut Citron, this amazing cocktail from Shoes & Cocktails, “Watermelon Lemonade,” refreshes and revitalizes.

The Ingredients/Recipe:
Serves 3 or 4
Cut ½ of a small watermelon into large chunks (do yourself a favor and get a seedless melon)
Puree in a blender, then strain into a pitcher (you should have enough liquid for a 3 to 1 alcohol ratio)
Add juice of two lemons
Add 3 or 4 shots vodka, preferably Absolut Citron
Mix well, then pour over ice
Garnish with fresh basil

Modifications: I generally prefer things tart rather than sweet. If this recipe is too tart for your liking, I recommend adding more watermelon, or 1 to 2 ounces of triple sec, Cointreau, or some other form of simple syrup. You can also garnish with mint, and/or lemon or watermelon wedges. I prefer basil because it is growing outside my backdoor, and nothing beats that smell in the summer!
Bonus tip: Here’s another perfect opportunity for using flavored ice cubes. Pour watermelon puree into your ice tray and freeze.
Thanks to Shoes & Cocktails for this summer delight!
