AFC BANANA DIET

Oh, About Those Bananas

Well, I ate the bananas as I said I would. It started out 2-3 a day, but became cumbersome, so I tapered to 1-2 a day and stayed there. Even making shakes became cumbersome. After about 9 days I lost 7 pounds and stayed there. Of course I didn’t diet in any other way, except […]

I wanted to move mountains not become one. Gluttony is the only sin you can’t hide. It’s right out there, staring everybody in the face. A sin isn’t just an offense against someone else or something else, it’s every bit as much a sin against one’s self. If you can’t control your gluttony, then you’re a […]

Being skinny isn’t the answer. Young girls who want to stay skinny aren’t prepared for womanhood. They want to keep their prepubescent figures, not ready to accept the challenges and responsibilities of adulthood. Guys who require that of women, want children for girlfriends and spouses, not adults. Forcing women to stay children is common to […]

Then why deny yourself the pleasure of exercise? Oh boy, here comes the whining again. Just do it. Regularly. Not once every two months. Every day. Not […]

Horrors. I had no idea. Of course I had no idea, I didn’t weigh myself. Sure my clothes were a little snug, a lot snug, but that “I’ll do it tomorrow’ mentality kept creeping in: the old procrastination trick so I can have today what I promise I won’t have tomorrow. THE LAST SUPPER – […]

TIPS & TOOLS

TAKE THE FIRST READING

Take the first reading on the scale and accept it – even if you think it’s wrong. When you buy produce at the market does the deli person weigh it over and over again hoping to get a lower reading for you? No. If they lift the produce once, twice, then replace it on the […]
