The right diets do work...




h. lena jones


See-food diets, what a hoot

No wonder folk say diets donít work

Theyíve used the wrong adjective before the noun

For you see, diets really do work!


I have a friend in New Zealand

She weighed over 200 lbs

Exercised every day without fail

But never lost an ounce

So she tried the Atkins diet

Blimey what a surprise

When months later

She was skinner than me!


Weight she lost, oh yes she did

And managed to keep if off, Amen

She just was consistent thereafter

In what she partook

For she knew if she slipped

And re-engaged old eating habits

In no time the weight would be back with extras

And she would be back to square ten!


So to you who have been trying to shed those stubborn pounds

Resist the urge to partake in tempting

SEE-food-eat-food diets

That way you canít blame the diet

When the weight youíve lost

Returns with its friends!

I found the ABS diet to be fab, 10 kg in 3 weeks, 22 pounds..
Hope she stays slim at the gym..

LOL, Lena,

Too clever, and cuts too close to home. I always say, I'll eat anything if it doesn't eat me first! Well done!

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.

Girl, you just gave me another idea for a great poem. Watch for it.
By the way the Atkins diet is nothing more than common sense. That's all we really need.
God Bless,

I never iet. Let then who carry me when I'm dead feel the weight of me :-) Really the best diet is eating properly, in small quantities and keeping to a 2000 calorie. I never do it though.

Wise, wise words, sweet Lena. One of my favorite sayings is this: "Nothing tastes as good as being thin feels." I have it framed and hung in my kitchen, just in case I want a second helping!
Love to you, precious friend,

Healthy eating healthy living, and never overfilling ones stomach!
Moderation in all we do...

Exercise though is paramount, and if you find yourself in a predicament like me, where exercising has to be in small amounts, then so be it, small amounts, often LOL
