After much research and tireless experimentation I am happy to say I have come up with a diet that could change the fact that our Nation is the fattest nation in the world; facts cited below.
Yes, we are the fattest; but I have a solution.
It’s called the More and Less Diet. The problem is that it’s not catchy, like the Paleo Diet that focuses on eating food that neanderthals eat (by the way, you don’t have Celiac Disease, only 1% of the nation does.) It’s not chic like the South Beach Diet that focuses on eating donuts and meat. There is no TV show to support it like the Biggest Loser Diet.
I need a way for the cool kids to talk about it at the water cooler. I need something for the chubby moms to talk about at the pool. It’s too simple to write a best selling book about it. What can I do?
Well, here it is: Exercise more and eat less.
That’s right, that’s all there is to it, eat less and exercise more or vice versa (that’s Latin for the other way around).
Nothing to obsess over, nothing to talk about really; just eat less and exercise more. Do this for several weeks, it will change your life. If you’re really chubby, add the term ‘a lot’ in the middle of each aspect of the diet.
I understand that there are exceptions, but before you charge ahead with the Paleo Diet, rush off to Fresh Market to ‘gather’ your food like the neanderthals, please try the More and Less Diet. Once you lose enough to where you really have to pay attention to your input, then by all means, read the books, buy the plan and go hunting and gathering! For now, save your money and go for More and Less.
It will get us, as a nation, started in the right direction. I personally, would like to beat out the UK who places at a lean number 7.
