My hips REALLY aren’t that big. It is my 30″ waist that makes my hips look big. Honest. Not that I care. SMILE.

West Indies’ New 308lbs ‘Rahkeem Cornwall’ Looks Out Of Place In A Test Match.

Never heard of him. Saw him for the first time when I watched the highlights of the 1st day of the West Indies vs. India 2nd Test.

Yes, he took the catch for the dismissal of the first Indian wicket. I thought my eyes were deceiving me. Thought he had to be a substitute and even that surprised me. I can’t remember seeing any fat West Indian cricketers. Then he came onto bowl — spin, of course. This guy can’t run.

Yes, he was involved in three wickets — two catches and one as a bowler.

But, this to I is not right. He won’t be able to run! That is not fair on others.

Yes, though his batting was entertaining I always found Afghanistan’s Mohammad Shahzad incongruous. He did not look like a cricketer and that kind of came to be in the last 18-months. He basically couldn’t play cricket.

Yes, I am old enough to remember and to have even seen Colin Milburn. But, that was a different era and Colin was fairly fit.

This guy, however, in my opinion, is the last straw for the still struggling West Indies cricket team. He looks a joke. I am SORRY.

I Have Become Hooked On Yoplait’s New ‘Oui’ French Yogurt In A Cute Glass Jar.

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE.


Click to access the official Website ‘Oui’.


I stumbled upon these cute ‘Oui‘ jars, serendipitously, in Cambridge, MA, when we were there yesterday for ‘Revels‘.

I eat some form of yogurt each day and have been doing so for 20-years.

Of late I have restricted myself to plain, Greek yogurt to keep away from the sugar and sweeteners.

But, I had a strawberry-flavored ‘Oui’ as a treat. I was hooked.

Today, when I was at Walmart I went looking for them. Much to my delight they had some. I bought 5 jars … key lime, mango, blueberry and raspberry.

But, this will be just over Christmas.

I have been too chicken to even look at the label. I am sure it is ultra-high in carbs. Yikes. This is not good for me. But, I cannot resist.

A Selfie — Of My Personal, Unfiltered Self-Image.

This statue, at the ‘China Pearl‘, in Chinatown, Boston, ALWAYS reminds me of what I think of myself.

It is NOT of the laughing Buddha — that a contradiction in terms that I will not get into here. This guy in going on a picnic.

This is how I have seen myself all my adult life — fat (actually obese), grin on my face and a flagon of wine at the ready. Not a great life, but the wine helps with the grin.

Sri Lankan Bowler Lahiru Gamage Wouldn’t Be Out Of Breath Bowling In Delhi If He Lost 20 Pounds.

by Anura Guruge



I have been meaning to comment on this for quite few months.

Quite a few of the Sri Lankan cricket team carry too much weight around their belly — classic Dahl belly.

Being even 10 pounds overweight makes a difference when playing cricket at the Test level. You are on the field, when fielding, for 6 – 7 hours.

Gamage is the worst — and he is supposedly a fast bowler (though I think he is more medium pace, than anything else).

Him getting sick in Delhi was understandable. He is too fat. Yes, I, given that I too am 20 lbs overweight, should not be complaining, BUT I am nearly 65-years old and no longer playing cricket. [Though to be fair I was fat when I played cricket.]

Anywho …

Gamage needs to go on a low-carb diet.

Think – Today: Why Is The Amazon River Called As Such?

by Anura Guruge

amazonrivermap-svgVery simple. The huge river in South America — the Amazon. Why is it called that?


Think first, then research, then THINK again. Think for the pleasure of thinking.


Yesterday’s ‘Think’What happens to the fat that you lose/burn during dieting. It is expelled from the body in the form of Carbon Dioxide and water (mainly in sweat and urine). There can also sometimes be some Ketones that are expelled — that produces bad breath. This YouTube video explains more and is quite entertaining.

Think – Today: When You Diet What Happens To The Weight You Shed?

by Anura Guruge


thinktodaybanner
fatSay you lost 5 pounds. Shed 5 pounds. There is the expression about ‘burning fat’. Where does the weight we lose go? How do we shed it. It doesn’t come off in chunks.


Think first, then research, then THINK again. Think for the pleasure of thinking.


Yesterday’s ‘Think’Plastic oven bags are made from a high-melting point NYLON (or polymer). They are FDA approved. The bags can melt, but not at the below 400° F temperatures they are meant to be used. The 2 tablespoons of flour, per ‘Reynolds’ who make such bags is for blending the fat and juices released during the roasting to protect the bags from bursting.

“Noosa” — A Fine Yogurt With Pepper-Spiced Heat, BUT Alas Too ‘Rich’ For Me.

by Anura Guruge

Click image to access the “Noosa Yoghurt” Website.


I swung by Hannaford in Alton to pick up some items this afternoon and came across a lady doing a taste demo for this yogurt — or yoghurt, as they call it. She made a point of telling me to try the yogurt with HEAT — i.e., yogurt with chilli peppers. Well I like pepper and as I have talked about before, I eat a yogurt each and every day and have been doing so for nearly 20 years.

I tried the “Blackberry/Serrano” and loved it. She gave me a 55 cent coupon and I bought a container. It is a double size container — i.e., twice as much as your normal yogurt container.

When I came home I read the label. I was SHOCKED. The fat and carbs are WAY ABOVE what I would normally indulge in. A very rich yogurt. But it sure tasted good. Yum. Yum. Would love to eat some everyday with the chilli but I couldn’t handle all that extra fat and carbs given that I, yet again, need to lose some weight!

I am going to try adding some chilli to my normal Greek yogurt. I will tell you if I crack the recipe.

Only Rhode Island, of the Northeast States, comes in any worse. Not good.
To be beaten by Maine!
Sacrebleu, is there no pride left in N.H.


What is worse is that N.H. obesity is on the increase. Not good.

This is a shame. It is becoming noticeable. When we were in Phoenix Airport, last month, while waiting for our luggage, we were forced to comment on this: ‘you don’t see this many THIN people at home’! Saying that the climate helps is only part of the story. I really would like to see this trend reversed.
