Our Lady of Weight Loss

American Idol: Kris Allen – the morning after.

I thought that the shock of Boy-Next-Store, Kris Allen winning the “American Idol” title over Rock Star Adam Lambert would wear off by the time the morning rolled around and I’d downed a cup of coffee or two. I thought I’d move on into something a bit more substantive and important. But no.
This Beliefnet blogger is still fixated on the results, and wondering, as I am sure some of you are, as well. Did Kris Allen, 23, of Conway, Arkansas really deserve to win? In his own words, “I’m sorry, I don’t even know what to feel right now. This is crazy.”
StarPulse.com sheds some light on the subject:
“After the third one leaves, you wonder where do the votes go from that third contestant,” Paula Abdul said backstage after Tuesday’s singing showdown.
Allen seemed the likely candidate for those viewers’ affections, for on- and offstage reasons. Allen and Gokey, 29, of Milwaukee, were downright conservative when compared to Lambert’s elaborate staging and wardrobe choices. Allen is a married college student and has worked as a church worship leader. Gokey, a widower, is a church music director.
Lambert, 27, of Los Angeles, brought measured rock flashiness — daring, not freaky — with songs including “Whole Lotta Love,” the first-ever Led Zeppelin tune on “Idol.” He’s largely kept his personal life under wraps, saying “I know who I am” when asked about it.
Earlier this week, Allen said he hoped the outcome wouldn’t be decided by “having the Christian vote.”
“I hope it has to do with your talent and the performance that you give and the package that you have. It’s not about religion and all that kind of stuff,” he said.
Added Lambert: “It’s about music. That’s really important to keep in mind.”

This blogger is still left wondering … did America vote on the music?

American Idol Finale: 6 Stress-Busting Snacks

I don’t know about you but this Beliefnet blogger is a bit concerned as to how she is going to get through tonight’s American Idol finale. It promises to be a star-studded nail-biter of an event.
Will the stress of waiting till the bitter end of the two-hour finale to see who will be crowned our next American Idol push us over the edge? Will we hit the fridge on the commercials? Or even worse, during the show, itself?
Best to plan for these high-tension moments in advance!!!
Here follows some simple, healthy snacks that will definitely help to keep your stress in check and you in your healthy zone.
Tropical Parfait
Layer bananas, mangoes, pineapple, papaya with a dollop of low-fat yogurt in a parfait glass. Healthy, delicious and impressive. Here’s a pineapple tip: put the pineapple in the oven @ 350 degrees for 20 minutes. It brings out the sugar and even if it’s not totally ripe, it will be!
Red Ant Log
Stuff celery stalks with 1 tablespoon almond butter, topped with a sprinkle of dried cranberries.
Almonds. Raw and Unblanched! At 7 calories each, best to count out 15 and leave it at that.
Blueberries. If tropical fruit and/or nuts aren’t your thing, try 1/2 cup of blueberries. Nature at its best.
Mini-Pizza. For those who feel like cooking! Toast a whole-wheat English muffin, top with pizza sauce and a little sprinkle of low-fat cheese. Add steamed broccoli or spinach as a topping if you like. Peppers, too. Broil or under a minute, till bubbly.
Cantaloupe & Cottage Cheese. You can’t go wrong with this old stand-by, and you certainly do get a lot of bang for your calorie buck. 1/4 of a melon with a scoop of cottage cheese and you’re all set!

Memorial Day: How to Eat More. Weigh Less.

hot diggity dog corn.jpgBefore you uncover your grill and get your beef patties a burnin,’ and your buns a toastin,’ please do take a moment to ingest these hale & hearty and healthful tips from the master of permanent fat removal, Janice Taylor (50 pound big-time-loser).
How to Joyfully go Into the ‘LITE’ this BBQ Season!
PILE HIGH your plate with grilled eggplant, peppers, onions, corn and Portobello mushrooms… a veritable veggie feast.
LEAVE YOUR BUN BEHIND. Do a burger lettuce wrap. No kidding, it’s really good.
DUMP THE SUGAR DOUSED BBQ SAUCE. Use mustard, ketchup and salsa instead.
GET HIGH ON HEALTH. A Margarita has more calories than the meal itself. Cut up a few cucumber slices, place in pitcher full of water and pour yourself a refreshing tall glass. Bottoms up!
SWAP IT. Trade in your bacon cheeseburger for a turkey burger or a veggie burger! Add lettuce, tomato, pickles and whatever else you like, plus some mustard and ketchup. Big yum.
PASTA SALAD. Go for it! Mix up some whole-wheat penne with tons of fresh zucchini, asparagus, onions, peppers.
DESSERT! Yay! DESSERT! Get your skewers ready and load ’em up with pineapple, mango and peach ‘chunks.’ Grill on into the night!
WHOA! That’s a lot of grilling and plenty of bang for your calorie buck.
