The Don't Eat Dinner Diet
So I've come the decision that there's only one thing to do. Go on a diet. I've decided to call this diet the Don't Eat Dinner Diet. I'm coprighting the term right now.
The Don't Eat Dinner Diet is simple. Eat what you want for breakfast and lunch. Eat away, with gay abandon (well, within order). The crunch comes from not eating (as you may have guessed it) dinner.
You may say "Crazy, worse than South Beach!" but I insist that eating after 6pm is the main reason I stay fat. So, oatmeal for breakfast, salad for lunch, afternoon snacks from the coffee room and then a light meal before six. After that nothing.
There'll be a beautiful rumbling in the stomach but you won't care. You'll feel lightheaded after a few hours in the post-work gym but you'll be going to bed soon so you won't care. You get to spend more time with loved ones, or doing things that actually mean something to you. You can break the diet as often as you wish (within moderation) as long as you spend most of the time not eating dinner.
This diet is not as crazy as it sounds. Most of us have completed our daily intake of our calorie quota by 6pm anyhow. Stopping eating is about the best thing we can do for ourselves.
Crazy? I don't think so. I can eat anything I want (within reason). And at any time. No restrictions, no counting, no ridiculous nitpicking. Just no dinner. It's the diet.
