Lose Weight Now, Ask Me How

Weight Watchers
South Beach
Cabbage Soup

Every week, it seems there’s another diet program out there promising something for nothing, except a monthly fee of course. Oh…and meals are extra. The pounds just melt off. And I got this way eating hamburgers, pizza…even chocolate!!

While the bulimic supermodel might pop up fairly often in magazines these days, she is hardly seen in public. There are many different healthy body types out there. Several years ago, a full figured woman was the ideal form. Times change.

The media has always had the knack of showing us what we’ve wanted to see. Many believe any claim that promises them the world for little or no effort. To quote the great Chris de Burgh, “Don't believe a word you read, and only half of what you see…”

The amazing broccoli-broth and bean-bath diet!! The dependable frog legs, figs and flatulence diet!! Just try eating less and exercising more. Don’t starve yourself. Don’t feel obligated to get the fries, even if they come with the meal. Drink more water, less soda. Boy, there are so many tangents I could go off on right now. But I won’t. I’ll behave. More later.

“Never go to excess, but let moderation be your guide.” - Cicero
