Happy Holidays: Eating Tips To Ignore

25 Nov

 

The holidays are upon us… actually, they are in our face.

Holiday Advice Food Humor

There is a ton of advice out there on how not to overeat on Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hannukah, Kwanza, New Year’s Eve, New Year’s Day, and every other holiday you can imagine.

Tips like, “NO seconds,” “Drink ONLY water,” “During your meal, go to the bathroom, look in the mirror, and guilt yourself about how many calories you’re taking in,” “Fill up on celery and radishes – stay away from the dip,” and “Do planks and push-ups between courses.”

Pull-ease! Gratification is the whole point.

Weight Watchers Ice Cream

22 May

I’m in love. Or is it merely lust?

Oh, Yes!

Great photo on the box cover. Isn’t subliminal advertising subtle?

Nonetheless, Madison Avenue knows I  scream, you scream, we all holler like crazy for it!  Yes. Low calorie ice cream.

One of these highly satisfying, heavenly treats is only 80 calories, can you believe it?

Why have one dark chocolate raspberry ice cream bar when you can have two?

Two bars… 2 x 80 = 160 calories. Not too bad…

 

But, no!  The box says 1 bar = 80 calories and 2 bars = 170 calories.

Do the math, dudes at Weight Watchers. What’s with the extra 10 calories when I down two bars? Does that mean if I savor four bars (hmmm, not that I would) is it an extra 20 calories? Or is it like the Richter scale, increasing exponentially?

Is the extra 10 calories some kind of diet penalty?

I have contacted the generous and marketing savvy people at Weight Watchers regarding this error. I’m hoping they will reward me with Weight Watchers ice cream ’til death or ’til I gain 25 pounds – whichever comes first.
