Dead Democracy

Posted in College Life, Uncategorized with tags , , , , , on June 30, 2010 by Yamil

Today as I watch the TV I come to the realization that our so called democracy is no longer existent. The voices of the people are being extinguished by the fascism of the current government administration. With excessive brutality our advances of negotiation are being destroyed. With sadness I watch as the government is determined to destroy the same people that chose them hoping for a change. A change for the better, not for the worse.

Diet / Weight Loss Plan: Current Diet

Posted in Diet, Fitness, Uncategorized on June 18, 2010 by Yamil

As you all know it’s been 9 days since I started the much needed diet. So far I’ve lost 7.4 pounds!!! And it hasn’t even been that difficult. Here I’m gonna give a brief idea of what I consume daily.

First of all it is important to know how many calories you consume daily. One easy way that I found to track this is the website Calorie Count. In this website you enter the nutritional values of everything you eat and the website does a daily analysis on how effective is your diet. It is really important to remember that the minimum calorie intake for a male is 1,500 calories, and for a female is 1,300.

So what about the food? Here I’m gonna give a few examples of the products I’m currently using. Now I must say that I hate vegetables, fruits and pretty much all healthy food so I’v been trying some maybe healthy replacements that do not make me eat something I don’t like.

Breakfasts:

So for breakfast I’ve been replacing it with a Slim-Fast milkshake. It has a huge amount of nutrients and a low amount of calories. Also it leaves a very full sensation so it holds for a while.

Lunch and Dinners:

For these meals I’ve started using frozen meal products. They have a low amount of calories, a lot of proteins and they’re not bad at all. I’m gonna leave a few examples.

Snacks:

As I said earlier, I’m not such a fan of healthy food (my curse). So for snacks I mostly use the variety of 100 of variety packs of all kinds of cookies or snacks. Another alternative is a glass of Skim Milk. Examples below:

DISCLAIMER: Before starting a diet it is important to visit your doctor or nutritionist to consult the right plan for you.
