Is There a Patch To Stay Vegetarian?



OMG! I have been vegetarian a few times in my life, and usually it is pretty easy. Last May I started again and it was okay, then slowly at the end of summer I started having the occasional steak, and then in late October due to being out of work and honestly not having the money for meat, I became vegetarian again.

I have been reading books like The Kind Diet, and magazines and am trying my best to follow a healthy diet.

I have lost 18 lbs-wow I didn't even know I was 18 lbs overweight!-I feel better, I am happier, I have more energy and all together for me, this has been a great choice.

Today I was down in L.A. on Wilshire by E! and there was a burger truck and it smelled sooooooooooooooooooooooo good. I walked by it a couple times, just to get a whiff of the smell. Flashbacks of the show Friends and Chandler trying to quit came into my head, or remember in Sex & The City when Carrie ended her date early to have a quick drag? This is how I feel.
I kissed a guy who had eaten a steak and I swear that even though he had brushed his teeth and had alcoholic beverages, I could still taste it.

The way I see it, smoking is bad, meat is bad...they are both hard to get over, so I wonder when the hamburger patch will get invented.

As well, as the torture of smelling a grill outside, or a steak being cooked, walking past a burger joint, I keep getting coupons from all my favorite steak places around Los Angeles, it is like they know and are doing it on purpose!

I am just sayin' this is harder than it should be-all the be healthy, thin and gorgeous!

"Who Would You Have Dinner With?"

In college and even some job applications that age old essay question always pops up: "Who would you have dinner with, dead or alive, if given the chance?"

In 10th grade, I answered Madonna because I thought she was strong, ambitious, smart and could do whatever she wanted. I admired her so much, and wanted to be like her in many ways-not a pop start-but I wanted to be like her spirit. I was living alone at the time (long story), and had really no one in my life to look up to and she was a role model to me.

In 12th grade we were asked the same question and again, I answered, Madonna for the same reasons. Although at this point I had moved in with my mother and my step-father, who hated me in high school. I was really close to my step-brother John, but still felt isolated and alone and Madonna symbolized someone who made it on her own, even though things were hard.

Throughout the years I have had many idols and of course that question has been asked of me in interviews and su…

Letter To My Sandwich

Dear Grilled Cheese Sandwich,

I just wanted to say thank you for being so yummy and keeping me full during these hard economic times. You are always faithfully there ready for lunch, or a snack, and sometimes breakfast. The way the cheese melts between your two slices of bread, make you irresistible to walk away from and impossible to ignore.

I love you completely with my whole heart. You were the only one who helped me through my college years when I was just new to the adult world. You helped me make the transition back into eating after quitting acting. You guided me through many a late night working in animation those first few years. Now you are back to help me survive through this hiatus.

I will always be grateful that you are there, cheap and easy. Your ability to keep me full for an entire week and yet not requiring that I empty the piggy-bank to do so means more than I can ever express. I believe that we will be seeing a lot of each other in the next few weeks until I start …

How to Be Healthy and Fit-Don't Listen To....

People often ask me about health & fitness because I was so involved in that industry for so many years and I still post about great programs, blogs, books, trainers, online classes, programs etc. (like Denise Austin-who was the first person I trained with in the late 80s to get certified, Michelle Bridges, Mari Winsor, Tracey Anderson and workouts like Barre3, The Bar Method, Zumba, etc).

Here is what I'm going to say.
1) Just because someone has starved themselves and lost a ton of weight, that does NOT make them an expert.
2) Just because someone runs or goes to the gym, that also doesn't make them an expert.
3) People who give sweeping advice like, 'be gluten free, be vegan, only eat 1000 calories a day' etc.. are not qualified to tell you, or anyone else how to be healthy.
4) Also, SKINNY does NOT equal healthy, this is a dangerous concept.

These are important things to remember.
If you want to lose weight or get healthier, please go to your fitness club and spe…
