There’s diets that work . . .

February 8, 2010

 . . . then there’s this one:

*  If it is good for you it’s not fattening, so as long as you are eating it for the calcium content there’s no need to worry about the kilojoules in cheese and ice cream.
* Kilojoules only count when you’re enjoying eating them.
* Following from that: anything you don’t like isn’t fattening so if you develop an aversion to chocolate or champagne it’s fine to have as much as you like, even if you have to indulge in quite a lot of them before developing the aversion.
* Kilojoules shared are kilojoules halved. Any amount of food divided between six meals will have only half the energy value of the same amount of food consumed in three.
* Anything eaten to protect someone else from temptation is kilojoulefree becuase you are performing a service.
Dedicated with tongue in cheek (a good diet tool because it’s hard to eat when you’re doing that)  to Busted Blonde who’s just finished the first week of her journey to  Fab & Fifty.

A good day to start a diet

February 1, 2010

Monday is a good day to start a diet.

But not this Monday when there is food left over from the weekend.

A little waste may be better than a lot of waist and I could throw it out. But would it really matter if I pick a little here and peck a little there? After all tomorrow is Tuesday which is a good day to start a diet.

But not this Tuesday because I’ve been invited out for dinner and it would be rude to be picky and Wednesday would be a better day to start a diet.

Except this Wednesday I have places to go and people to see and there will be food to eat more well than wisely and the next day is Thursday which is a good day to start a diet.

But not this Thursday because there’s more places to go and people to see and again it would be rude to be picky. Besides the following day is Friday which is a good day to start a diet.

Except this Friday when I’ll be baking and have to test what I’m producing just in case. It will be better to wait until Saturday which is a good day to start a diet.

But not this Saturday. I’m planning to spend all day in the garden and it’s not easy to eat when you’re hands are dirty. The trouble is that means I’ll be really hungry when I finish so it will be better to wait until Sunday which is a much better day to start a diet.

Although not this Sunday because friends are joining us for lunch and it would be rude to peck at a tiny portion while plying them with plenty.

Besides, having written off the rest of the week I might as well finish as I started and wait for the next day, which will be Monday and Monday is a good day to start a diet . . .

Dedicated with admiration to Busted Blonde who is aiming to be Fab and Fifty.
