Thought for Food


I am not very good at dieting, I’m not sure why it never works very well but I have a suspicion that it has something to do with cheese, what it is melted on to and the amount of it that goes into my mouth.

I don’t think it’s fair that only celebrities get to be the masterminds behind crazy diet ideas, that mostly seem to consist of things like eating paper and getting plastic surgery (probably to remove any stray staples lurking in said paper). I want in on the action, and therefore I am proud to present you with the product of at least 5 minutes of contemplation, I call it The Reading Diet.

This is how it works:

When you get hungry you read instead of eating. This way you feed your brain but not your bingo wings.

That’s it. There’s no calorie counting, Paul McKenna whispering, or imagining yourself as a svelte gazelle (whatever that is). Just plain, old-fashioned fun.

I’m so sure that this is going to be a hit that I may even write a book about The Reading Diet. Now, tell me, does that count as intertextuality?
