Sarah Millican is a comedy Goddess. I love her unashamed crassness and wit. Continuing on from yesterday are a few more of my dietary tales of woe.
- The Blood Group Diet- This was another fail. In my wisdom I decided that the Keto Diet ( formerly Atkins ) and Blood Group diet were related. There was no other explanation for how a member of my family and myself could stick to the Atkins Diet perfectly and she would lose 7lbs and I would lose a pound and a half. I theorised that if your Blood Group was O that it meant you would have a predisposition to lose more weight on the Atkins Diet. At least that was my excuse and I stuck to it. It did actually make my blood boil but I don’t think that it was meant to do that.
- The Lemonade Diet-Master Cleanse. Beyonce has famously extolled the virtues of this diet. She even named her album after it. This requires you to drink gallons of freshly homemade lemonade with maple syrup and cayenne pepper. I lost weight- 5 lbs- but could not maintain the loss as unfortunately I like food.
Other diet tricks are pouring washing up liquid over the chocolate or cake that you have bought to render it inedible. It is a novel idea and one that I have used once. Although I didn’t use washing up liquid. I used melted chocolate. Which may not have been such a good idea. But it was scrumdiddlyumptious.
Dieting is a multi-billion-dollar industry. It preys on the weak and the desperate. Most Doctors will attest to the fact that most of the diets do not work. As a diet needs to be sustainable for life. I just wish that the really cute rolls of fat that I had as a baby were as cute now that I am older. But apparently not.
That’s all for now
