I recently read the following:

THE CARDIOLOGIST'S DIET: If it tastes good, spit it out.

Seemed to me that there was more than a grain of truth in it. I wondered who the author was and in Googling the entire sentence, not only did I find that the source is unknown but also some other very funny comments about dieting. Those of us who constantly battle weight will find them funny and mostly true. See what you think:

A balanced diet is a cookie in each hand. ~Author Unknown

If you really want to be depressed, weigh yourself in grams. ~Jason Love

I am a nutritional overachiever. ~Author Unknown
