Forgetting where you put it
“Moi does not recommend dieting. The only way you can lose weight is the same way you lose anything – by forgetting where you put it…A very common oversight in most weight-limitation programs is to pay excessive attention to the calories you consume rather than to the enormous numbers of calories you routinely avoid…You can eliminate a lot of calories by entirely cutting out things you hate.” — Miss Piggy
One year ago I posted about various aspects of physical health, including dieting. This year, I thought I would lighten things up a bit (no pun intended) with some dieting advice from that icon of perfection, Miss Piggy. As anyone familiar with her can confirm, Miss Piggy never has to worry about defeating despair. That task is delegated to those who have to put up with her!
Nonetheless, I must admit that I have unintentionally tried all of the tactics she suggests, and I find the last one to be the best approach for me. I no longer eat anything I don’t absolutely love, unless it’s so healthy for me that I can use it to earn indulgences in something that’s so full of sugar, fat or salt as to be borderline toxic.
Do you have any dietary tips of which Miss Piggy would approve? Feel free to share them here. And remember one of her most famous maxims: “Never eat more than you can lift.”
