I'm coming to visit. Anybody know where I can get an easy chair with wheels that can be hitched to an SLK, since I won't fit inside much longer?

So, how many calories can you burn jogging the 3 miles to the Deutsche Bäckerei? Dangerous, I put on 4 pounds just looking at the pictures.

LOL........my grandmothers as well. But both grandmothers were from different parts of Europe and both made totally different strudels.

One grandmother was from a small town in Russia called Shlutz (I think). Her strudel was a little more crunchy and made with raisins and walnuts. She also made a cookie that was hard as a rock. We called it Mandelbrot. I would let it stay in a glass of milk until it was really soggy, then it was good.

But the other grandmother, she was from Poland. And her strudel was the best. She would use very thin layers of dough, almost like a filo dough used in baklava. And she would fill it with homemade raspberry preserves and walnuts. Man, you could taste the butter, just thinking about it makes me gain about 10 lbs. It was the best, how I miss that strudel.

I resumed my low carb / high protein diet two weeks ago and this thread is killin' me. Heading back to the posts about parts, processors and paint.

The whole reason for this diet is that I was doing things like buying one of those bake-at-home frozen Claimjumper apple pies, then downing half of it as fast it was cool enough to eat. And the rest within 24 hours. Now doing some preventive maintenance before heading into the holidays.

No offense to Grandma Russia but that Polish strudel sounds amazing.

Hey Runner, the Doc. just put me on a very strict Low-Carb/high protein diet myself and just started last Friday, 11/8/13. Coupled with a pretty vigorous, daily exercise routine, it's amazing how good I feel just after this first week!

This time the old Doc. gave me a pretty good scare and my will power is unstoppable (I imagine the phentermine that I'm taking helps as well ). But this holiday season I'm not even gonna flinch over the sweets........just not worth it!

Still, "Bubbee's" (that's what we called her) strudel was incredible. And her biggest thrill was having others enjoy it.

This is a true story! We lost her just a five years ago. She was the only survivor of her family in World War II. When she was 22 years old, her family was gathered by the Nazis, separated and she was sent to a concentration camp called Plaszow, just outside of Krakow, where she was assigned as a laborer. On the day that the camp was liberated by the Soviet Army, she was reunited with her older sister who was also in the camp, yet they never saw each other the entire time they were there (at one point there were as many as 20,000 prisoners there). Of course they were thrilled to see each other.

They were liberated on Jan. 19, 1945, which was a Friday, the day of the Jewish Sabbath. So in celebration, her sister left the others to go get candles to be lit that evening for the Sabbath. While doing so, her sister was shot by soldiers who were not yet aware that the war was over, which left Bubbee as the last survivor. Extremely sad, but amazing how someone could heal and overcome such a tragic time in their life. I tell you this story because it makes her strudel even more special.

Go see your Doc. and get him to prescribe you some Phentermine. That will knock the hunger right out and make you feel real gooooooood to boot!

According to my Doctor, phentermine has been around a long time and as long as taken within reason for not a real long period of time, it is a very safe medication. No doubt, it is definitely a bit like speed, but sure curbs the appetite and helps you stick to your ****.

I also found that when I HAVE to have something sweet, close to me is a frozen yogurt place that carrys are product called Carbo-Lite. It tastes as good as any frozen yogurt that I have ever had and is only 4 carbs. per 4oz. serving. Keep up the good work. My goal, to look like I did when I was 21.....

Wifey and I when we were first married!

Well Doctor, sure hope my Doc. Knows what he's talking about then cause I'm 58, on BP meds.to keep it under control. Throughout my life although I haven't always been overweight, I have always fought it. Lost 100s of lbs. collectibles and always say this times the last time. But this time it is! I just passed the mark where officially I'm diabetic, but not too late to reverse it. So that is my real motivation.

One week into it and I feel like a new man already. I think the exercise has a lot to do with it too.

Good thing this is an "off topic" thread. :d

That is a sad yet powerful story. She was obviously an amazing person.

When I get a craving, my fallback is plain non-fat greek yogurt, the authentic stuff like Chobani or Fage not the brands with all the carb thickeners, mixed with some strawberries or blueberries, a bit of vanilla and the tiniest sprinkle of brown sugar on top - no need to be a fanatic. A banana in the course of the day keeps the edge off. I'm fortunate there are no meds involved, this is a personal commitment to maintain a lean body mass. Who knows, I might even go back to the Bowflex.

Man goes into doctors.
Doc prods and pokes him and says 'You must give up smoking, drinking, sex and rich food.'
'Will I live longer if I do?' the man asks.
'I don't know' says the doc, 'but it will sure feel like it!'

the thing is this time I'm doing with normal food-no Nutrisystem,no little boxes,etc…when I lost the 90# it was w/ Nutrisystem, but heck, you can't do that forever…my family is from south Louisiana, so eating comes naturally I'm afraid…very hard to resist the impulses, but seeing so many overweight patients w/ diabetes here in south Texas stiffens my reserve!!
