Could a Breaking Bad Diet Work for a Road Trip?

(All videos NSFW). You know you’ve been watching Breaking Bad too much when you keep nearly calling people ‘b*tch‘.

So at first this might not seem like the best diet for visiting your mother in law…

But we’re going on a fantastic road trip to get there too, probably through New Mexico, though sadly not in the true fan style of this Breaking Bad RV Tour.

And it will involve a lot more fast food than we usually eat. So this is a kind of reconnaissance and damage control diet.

I should add, right upfront, that I am not recommending amphetamines, although apparently there still are some over the counter diet supplements that contain them.

And I’m not recommending fast food either, just seeing if I can work with it.

Can’t anyone else be professional about this?

I’ll be taking the ‘Dining Out Companion’ book from WeightWatchers. That’s pretty professional, though in some ways incomprehensible too.

I’ll also be taking advantage of the new law that requires big chain restaurants to publish the number of calories in all their meals.

So how will this Breaking Bad diet work?

I should probably have a chemical formula ready at this point. But in fact (shocker!) I have no scientific reasoning for this diet. It’s basically just an attempt at weight-gain damage control while on vacation.

What are the rules?

Can You Detox Like a Snowman?

The Snowman: your New Year Detox Diet Saviour!

Was it just me, or did anyone else go off the rails a teeny bit towards the end of the year?

It’s been a month full of birthdays and holidays here, with 2 sets of grandparents and other relatives coming to stay (separately at least!) and now I’m at my heaviest ever 🙁

But don’t despair! New Year is a great time to try this Melting Snowman detox diet!!

What’s the Melting Snowman Detox Diet?

It’s a day or two of eating and drinking things you might use to make a snowman, of course 🙂

So that would be lots of water, carrots, tangerines (Santa’s signature gift as we Dr Who fans now know!), or other fruit that could be used as a snowman’s features. We’ll give the lumps of coal and twigs a miss this time.
