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
That way you canít blame the diet
When the weight youíve lost
Returns with its friends!
