The Once-In-A-While Diet

I had a client once. He said, "But I only eat a donut once a week!" "I only eat pizza on Friday night!" "I only have a few cookies with the kids after school!" "We go out for fast food just a couple times a month!" Even after I showed him that his "once-in-a-while" eating equated to a diet high in unhealthy fat and refined products, he still couldn't see it. For him, once in a while for everything was okay.

I had a patient tell me he was trying to control his weight by "eating light."

What did he mean?

"Once it gets light outside, I start eating!"

Ha! People will use any excuse.

Love Nat King Cole! Fitting you followed this with a no smoking post. On purpose? He died too early.

On purpose ... yes and no. I knew it was the Smokeout but I wasn't going to post about it until I heard that song. Great loss.

Wikipedia says he was 46 when he died.
