Don't tell me it's not a diet. You lie!

Okay … I just have to get this off my chest. Right now and for the next couple of months, we are going to be bombarded by the likes of Weight Watchers, Nutri-Systems, Jenny Craig, and the list goes on and on. I want you to know I have nothing against any of these organizations, and in fact, I am confident they all have their place in this world and they work. BUT … stop trying to fool me with your marketing rhetoric about how “it’s not a diet, it’s a lifestyle”. Listen and listen good. Anytime I can’t put whatever I want in my mouth, IT’S A DIET!

Lie #2 – After you do this diet … oops I mean lifestyle for a while, your tastebuds will change and you’ll see you won’t crave these type of foods anymore. Lies, lies, lies. For the last year of my life I have eaten enough vegetables, fruits, whole grains, beans, nuts and seeds, and all the recommended non white foods. I’m here to tell you my craving for doughnuts, cake, cookies, french fries, mashed potatoes, ICE CREAM (my personal favorite) bread pudding (ooooooooooh my), flan … (well you get the idea, the list is endless) never goes away….never!

So … all you guys, STOP LYING TO ME!

That’s all I have to say. Oh except one thing. I’ve already started my Medi-fast diet for 2010. Happy New Year everyone.
