Diets ….. why?

So, my diet has begun (again), but no, this time it’s serious, (again)… But there are a few questions that I do need to ask about diets…

Why is it the moment I decide to go on a diet I feel hungry?

Why does chocolate taste so good and celery tastes…. of nothing?

Why are my clothes getting smaller?

What makes celebrities think they know best about diets (and keep fit for that matter?)?

Why is it that when I’m hungry I get told to drink water?

Why can’t I substitute a glass of wine for a meal? It is grapes, after all….

And while we’re talking about diets, why are men so much better at it than women? My hubby just has to cut out his chocolate biscuits and his weight loss is dramatic.  Me, I just have to open the fridge and smell the cheese and I put on weight!!


The chocolates from Christmas have finally been eaten, I’ve thrown out the left over mince pies, there’s no more Pringles, crisps or peanuts in the larder, so now I feel safe to start my diet. It’s good to have a target to get to and mine is a holiday in May, which according to my Holiday Countdown App is 117 days away. It’s doable I know, but then I remember there’s Valentine’s Day, Pancake Day and Easter to get through….

Times when calories aren’t counted:

dietIf you eat your meal standing up.

If you eat off someone’s else’s plate.

If you eat alone.

  1. I was a health coach for a medical weight loss company. The products were great and everyone lost weight. The problem is that if you don’t change everything and say that is how you will live for the rest of your life, you will gain everything, if not more, back. Your body gets used to limited calories and all that but once you throw in even one or two foods/drinks that wreck it, forget about it. To “diet” the right way, you literally have to empty all your cabinets and then don’t go out to eat at all.


  2. Thank you for the sensible critique. Me & my neighbor were just preparing to do a little research about this. We got a grab a book from our area library but I think I learned more from this post. I’m very glad to see such fantastic information being shared freely out there.


  3. Hello there! I know this is kinda off topic however , I’d figured I’d ask. Would you be interested in exchanging links or maybe guest writing a blog article or vice-versa? My blog addresses a lot of the same subjects as yours and I think we could greatly benefit from each other. If you’re interested feel free to shoot me an e-mail. I look forward to hearing from you! Fantastic blog by the way!


  4. This design is spectacular! You obviously know how to keep a reader
    amused. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well,
    almost…HaHa!) Wonderful job. I really enjoyed what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it.
    Too cool!
