Yet another unconventional (crazy?) diet plan for me!
I'm fat. Again. While I managed to actually lose
weight the first year of our travels*, nine months of living in a single place has caused me to pack on the pounds. Or kilos, as I'm no longer living in the USA. I've no idea how much I've gained, nor do I care. All I know is my shirts are getting a little tight, my moobs are back, and this shit has to change.
Those who've been with me a while will automatically assume I'm starting up +The Beer Diet (a brew story)
again. Yes, it worked quite well for me several years in a row, shedding fat while drinking quality craft beer. Only now I'm in Thailand, and quality craft beer comes at a premium price. So that can't be the base of my diet.
Sausage-based diets (see above) are also out. There are some tasty sausages on the streets of Thailand, but the selection isn't nearly as varied as I'm used to, and I'm afraid I'd get very bored very quickly, ruining my long-term plan.
With my two go-to packaged goodness unavailable, I'm turning to an unlikely source: ramen. Specifically the cheap-ass ramen that has an entire aisle -- not a just a section -- in every Bangkok grocery store. The calories are easy to count (roughly 440 in these big-assed packages designed for two), they're ubiquitous, and they take just a few minutes to prepare. Best of all, I've learned that art of "doctoring" with various other components.
So it begins. I'd tell you my current measurements, but I don't have a cloth tape. So I'll go by clothes fitting. That's more important, anyhow.#ramendiet* - Did you miss the news? We left our home in January 2015 to travel the world. In January 2016, we made Bangkok Thailand our new home base. Checkout http://shevo.wtf for the full story.
