Debunking Diets (Part 2)

The bread here tends to be of the baguette variety and not the sliced white kind which means that it’s not chock full of additives and preservatives. If you buy a baguette here you have to eat it on the same day because the following day it will be so hard that you could beat someone to death with it! 

Debunking Diets (part 1)

A quick whizz around Google News this morning resulted in articles about 5 new diets that have been launched; that’s the news just for today not the last week or month, in just one day! Curious as ever I decided to have a closer look at a couple of them and I’d like to share…

Mother Nature’s Gym

Walking uphill is a great workout for your glutes (those muscles that keep your bum firm and pert) plus it’s a great way to get your heart pumping but the best bit is seeing the view from the top

Are You Really Trying?

The bad news is that no such diet exists; you can starve yourself and exercise until you’re blue (or red) in the face but, if you were born without gazelle like legs and your DNA has determined that your boobs will forever remain like two fried eggs on a draining board, you’re not going to feature in the Victoria Secrets catalogue any time soon.

Stop! It’s Naughty

If you then tell them, yes it’s naughty but you can have it twice a week on Monday and Thursday afternoons at 3 o’clock, what will that do? For most of us by the time Monday and Thursday lunch times swing round we’ll be salivating and trying to stop ourselves diving head first into the fridge (or wherever you’ve stashed your tasty treat). At 2.59 we’ll be breaking out in a cold sweat and, at 3.01,heaving a huge sigh of relief as our taste buds finally come into contact with whatever it is we’ve been craving.

Unhealthily Fashionable?

All of this really goes to show that what what we perceive as being healthy may not necessarily be so and, frankly, any processed foods (including most sliced bread that you find in supermarkets) will never be as healthy as those that Mother Nature provides for us!
