A Little Less Of Me

My quest to become thinner and healthier

You’ve Got to Be Freaking Kidding Me 8 November 2010

Please bear with me, faithful reader(s) … I’m the process of considering a format change to my blog.  More on that perhaps tomorrow.  In the meantime, I thought I’d share this CNN.com article with you all.

I understand that the professor says right in the article that he still doesn’t recommend anyone follow this diet, but COME ON.  We all know there are a million people out there who will jump on this (let’s pray he doesn’t become Twinkie’s Jared) and follow it in hopes of getting into a bikini for that wintertime cruise.

Seriously, world of media … if you see that someone came up with a dumb-assed scheme like this that happened to succeed, please consider the fact that there are a lot of people out there who may not “get” that this is a terrible idea.  He could have done the same experiment with healthier options – eating oatmeal and Kashi every few hours; that sort of thing.  But no, let’s eat Twinkies all day every day for 10 weeks and see how that goes.  Brilliant.

Sigh.
