February 2007


After a disappointing weigh in last week I have come back with a vengeance. I'm back on Phase 1 of the South Beach Diet, and I am ellipticaling like a mad man (I break the 3 mile mark each time I go to the gym, and it takes me 26 minutes. Not too shabby for a fat dude who was out of breath after 6 minutes when I started (though I'm still a fat dude).

For those of you checking track at home, that means I have lost 68.8 pounds in 6 months.

I'll take half a dozen lobster glazed donuts, please


Whilst looking up the nutritional information about Dunkin' Donut's glazed donut for my last post I came across something odd. To the right you see the 'Allergy Data' for the glazed donut (this segment is on each item's nutritional data page). Notice that the glazed donut does not contain any of the following:

  • crab
  • crayfish
  • lobster
  • shrimp

I'm sure there is a some valid legal reason why Dunkin' Donuts has to list this, but it seems very silly to me. The only item I could find that does, in fact, have crustaceans in it is their Boston Clam Chowder. I suppose they wanted to have one design for each page, no matter how silly it might be.

Whole Wheat glazed donuts from Krispy Kreme


Today Krispy Kreme unveiled their newest donut, and it is aimed squarely at the health conscious donut eater (i.e. fat people who know they shouldn't eat donuts, but do anyway). The new donut is a whole wheat glazed donut with some caramel flavoring, and best of all it has only 180 calories (compared to their original glazed which has 200 calories).

Glazed is my donut of choice, and while I do enjoy Krispy Kreme donuts they are a little too sweet for me (though I would punch a baby in the face for a freshly made, still warm Krispy Kreme donut). I am a Dunkin' Donuts fan, and I do love their glazed donut which has, oddly enough, exactly 180 calories. Wacky, huh?

Who the heck is reading this?


I know Feedburner stats are more art than science, but 281 subscribers? I am not even all that interesting to myself, so why the heck are you people reading this?

Make no mistake, I love you all as if you were my own children. I am giving you a big old virtual hug right now, but in the words of William Shatner, 'Get a life!'


Oh, the horror! I've gained a little over 3 pounds since my last check in. Perhaps all is lost and I should just toss in the towel.

Nay, I say, nay!

I knew I would be gaining a little bit over the last few weeks. How did I know this? Because I was eating like a mad man (just yesterday I had 2 pieces of cake and 3 doughnuts).

So, it is back on the South Beach Diet for Scottycakes.
