I read about this new diet called the Fast Diet, devised by a British doctor. The tag line for the book is ‘eat what you like..most of the time.’ How it works is you consume whatever your heart desires, but on 2 days out of the week, your consumption is restricted to 500 calories.
I am not trying to lose weight, but I am always intrigued by the latest fad diets as I used to be a manic dieter. I find diets and exercise so laughable and kind of defeating.
Here’s the truth. This diet works. Trust me, it does. Want to know another secret? All diets work! Yeah, they all do! I’m not being sarcastic, I’m being completely honest. The Paleo diet, the Atkins diet, the Zone, the lemonade diet (i.e., the lobotomy diet), all of them work. But as soon as you decide you’ve had enough, say hello to that long lost friend called blubber. End that diet and you can say sayonara to that sleek lean body of yours.
I feel the same way about exercise. I know, I know, no one believes me that exercise is bad for your health. But whatever. You just keep running, biking, and taking those yoga classes while I enjoy life.
Because of fertility reasons, I’m banned from sugar, but here’s what I ate on my cheat day—a ginormous chocolate chip cookie from the Grove in the Fillmore.
