How can you force yourself to stop eating so you look nice and thin for summer?
Not only that, they're dangerous. This summer's almost over.
You've got nine months to shed some pounds before next summer. If
you drop just five pounds a month, that's 45 pounds, which, for all
we know, may be too much weight for you to lose. So, don't force
yourself to stop eating. Just put the fork down sooner. Especially
at lunch. We Americans eat way too much at lunch. No juice or
regular soda. Switch to water or diet soda. Stop eating
high-calorie snacks like Fritos. Cut out the desserts except for
one day a week when you treat yourself to a reasonable portion of
ice cream or cake -- not a whole freakin' quart of Ben &
Jerry's or an entire box of Entennman's chocolate glazed donuts.
(Have you ever seen how many calories and grams of fat are in just
ONE of those suckers?!) Try to increase your exercise: walk, run,
play tennis, have more sex (with protection, of course) -- whatever
floats yer boat. If you can create a 500-calorie-per-day deficit by
doing the things I mentioned, you can lose a pound a week, which is
-- let's see -- 4.33 weeks per month x 9 months = 39 pounds. You'll
look great in a two-piece!
