Free food -- and a lot of water

August 24th, 2010 at 06:00 pm

Yesterday was the unofficial kickoff of the school year at the college where I work. The whole staff and faculty gathered for a free breakfast AND lunch. Pretty nice.

The staff our our office will be getting together for a Bears game this Saturday. One of our alums is donating the use of his private box. Should be fun, but it will be a long day. We're supposed to meet at 1:30 and the game doesn't even start until 7. I'm not a big sports fan, so I am afraid it will really drag for me. I can't bow out; I've done it too many times!

Anyway, lots of free food this week, as the game will include tailgating, and we have been ordered to bring nothing but sunscreen and our appetites.

Speaking of appetites, I am trying the weight loss technique I heard about on the TODAY show this morning -- 16 oz. of water before each meal. Just did it for lunch, and I feel quite full. A little bloated, even. We'll see how long the feeling lasts. It is certainly the most inexpensive diet plan I've heard of in a while.

    I caught the tail end of that report and never did hear exactly what it was that helped lose weight. Thanks for the info! I should try that.

    I have to laugh. Its not a really a new tip, but I think water just isn't the popular drink anymore and people have forgotten the basics. 6 8-oz glasses a water a day; A lot of the time when you think you are hungry, you are actually thirsty & water will fix it. If you are eating a meal, drink water before hand and it will help you feel full longer.

    I'm glad it worked for you. I use that trick, too Smile

    I think in this case 16 oz is a bit more than a remember! As if I am not in the bathroom enough as it is!

    There is something to this, it does lead to some insurance of a fuller feeling from the meal, and it is certainly better than getting your stomach stapled! Still, I think that one 8 ounce glass might do the trick... with 16 ounces you are really going to be waterlogged! Good luck with it, and enjoy the Bears game as much as you can...
