Why I eat what I eat...

When it comes to diet, I have three main concerns:

1. Time

In a typical week, I work 60-65 hours; I don’t have a whole heck of a lot of time for cooking meals. However, in order for me to attain optimal health with my diet, preparation of my own food is a must. So, I try to make it easy for myself. For instance, beef and fish generally cook up quicker than, say, chicken or pork. Steaks and fish also have the advantage of not needing to be burnt to a crisp in order to be safely consumed. Time constraints are pretty much the only reason why I rarely eat chicken or pork. (Bacon, on the other hand…) Basically, if I can’t slap it in the boiler or in a frying pan and have it cook in less than 10 minutes, then I don’t bother buying it. (Even though I could eat it otherwise.)

2. Carbohydrate content

I hate counting. (I think this has something to do with me hating math.) So, you can imagine that counting carbs is a tiresome chore for me. So, how did I get around this little issue? I just don’t eat carbs. (This includes fiber, which I am convinced is not essential to good health. But to each his own.)

3. Hidden ingredients

Last, but not least, I wish to avoid chemicals and other undesirables that lurk in processed foods. Current items on my list are: trans fats, polyunsaturated fats, soy and soy derivatives, and certain preservatives.

So basically, I realized I needed a diet that was quick and easy to prepare, healthy, with no carbs or hidden ingredients. Yes, my food choices are a little bit limited.


But I’ve loving every bite of it.


Typical menu:

Breakfast

1. Two to four eggs, either scrambled or fried with two tablespoons (60g) of virgin coconut oil. I may or may not use cheese in the scrambled eggs.
2. Some form of meat, usually a four to five ounce (113.40-141.75 g) steak but sometimes two to three ounces of bacon.
3. Crystal Light Orange drink (about eight ounces, or 226.80 g)

Lunch

Since I take my lunch to work (in order to save some money), due to my diet plan, it’s much simpler to pack the same thing every day.

1. Four eggs already cracked in a disposable Tupperware dish. I pack butter separately to add to the eggs after they’ve been cooked in the microwave- they tend to dry out if I don’t.

2. Some red meat, depending on what I got in the fridge from the night before.

3. Water or diet cola.


Dinner

See breakfast.



I can't tell you how much I love my food. Most people don't believe me...Ah well. Can't argue with results.

[b]Description[/b]

Generic Viagra (sildenafil citrate; brand names include: Aphrodil / Edegra / Erasmo / Penegra / Revatio / Supra / Zwagra) is an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction regardless of the cause or duration of the problem or the age of the patient.
Sildenafil Citrate is the active ingredient used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence) in men. It can help men who have erectile dysfunction get and sustain an erection when they are sexually excited.
Generic Viagra is manufactured in accordance with World Health Organization standards and guidelines (WHO-GMP). Also you can find on our sites.
Generic Viagra is made with thorough reverse engineering for the sildenafil citrate molecule - a totally different process of making sildenafil and its reaction. That is why it takes effect in 15 minutes compared to other drugs which take 30-40 minutes to take effect.

Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
