Diet Rules For Cheaters

1. If you eat something and no one sees you eat it, it has no calories.

2. If you drink a diet soda with a candy bar, the calories in the candy bar are cancelled out by the diet soda.

3. When you eat with someone else, calories don't count if you don't eat more than they do.

4. Food used for medicinal purposes NEVER count, such as hot chocolate, brandy, toast and Sara Lee Cheesecake.

5. If you fatten up everyone else around you, then you look thinner.

6. Movie related foods (Milk Duds, Buttered Popcorn, Junior Mints, Red Hots, Tootsie Rolls, etc.) do not have additional calories because they are part of the entertainment package and not part of one's personal fuel.

7. Cookie pieces contain no fat--the process of breaking causes fat leakage.

8. Things licked off knives and spoons have no calories if you are in the process of preparing something. Examples are peanut butter on a knife making a sandwich and ice cream on a spoon making a sundae.

9. Foods that have the same color have the same number of calories. Examples are: spinach and pistachio ice cream; mushrooms and white chocolate.

NOTE: Chocolate is a universal color and may be substituted for any other food color.

10. Foods that are frozen have no calories because calories are units of heat. Examples are ice cream, frozen pies, and Popsicles


It is not for him to pride himself who loveth his own country, but rather for him who loveth the whole world. The earth is but one country, and mankind its citizens. ~~Baha'u'llah

The chief idols in the desecrated temple of mankind are none other than the triple gods of Nationalism, Racialism and Communism, at whose altars governments and peoples, whether democratic or totalitarian, at peace or at war, of the East or of the West, Christian or Islamic, are, in various forms and in different degrees, now worshiping. ~~Shoghi Effendi, The Promised Day is Come

All of that is good information for those who count calories. Believe me when I say I know about dieting. I have had a weight problem since the age of 15. I've tried all of the diets, Jenny Craig, Weight Watchers, most fad diets over the counter at the drug store, I even tried counting calories on my own. Turned out I would lose 30 pounds, but as soon as I stopped dieting, the weight would pile back on. What I now call the "Oprah Syndrome".

Before my first pregnancy, I had lost 40 pounds, (yet again). During my pregnancy, I gained back 60. After my daughter was born, I gained another 60 pounds. I was 120 pounds overweight for three years. One day I said; "Enough is enough". I put myself on a diet but I did not count calories. I ate all of my favorite foods except in smaller portions. Instead of eating a whole pizza, I limited myself to only one slice. I excercised more, and did what I enjoyed doing; (dancing and walking), so excercise was not "work" for me. After 9 months, I was 120 pounds lighter and through it all, I taught myself how to eat healthy and in moderation. It has been 15 years since I lost that weight and I am still keeping it off. Losing weight is not about counting calories. It is training yourself how to eat properly and in moderation without having to give up the foods you enjoy. Consume what you need and not another morsel more. It is very hard work, but it is doable. Want a chocolate bar? Have one. ONE, not TEN.
