I am really getting used to this. I must admit that I have had my doubts about the mechanics of the diet, the whys and wherefores of sticking to a food group each day but I think I have worked it out.
I am a serial dieter and have tried many, many, many diets from Weight Watchers to The Cabbage Soup Diet. This is the only one that has really worked for me.
I think it’s because you know that you really need that metabilism change to kick in so that you don’t just put the weight back on at the end of the 90 days and you know that if you don’t stick to it that it won’t change and as soon as you eat normally again you’ll be back where you started.
So “back on our heads” as they say.
For those of you that have wondered why we say…”back on our heads”, I’m going to explain.
It comes from a joke, a rather rude joke but I’ll clean it up as much as I can.
A man was unfortunately sent to hell and when The Devil met him at the surly gates he explained that he had just 3 choices as to where he would like to spend the rest of his death!
He had to choose from three rooms:
Room one had people being made to scrub the floor with their bare hands – not surprisingly he decided to reject that one.
Room two had people people shovelling coal into a furnace in blazing heat – again another rejection.
Then he came to room three. He was relieved to find that this didn’t seem to be too bad – everyone was drinking tea while standing up to their knees in pig’s dung. I’ll take this one he shouted – definitely this one.
“Very well”, said The Devil, “in you go”!
As the man went over to pick up his cup of tea, a devil’s helper swung the door open and shouted,
“OK guys, end of tea break, back on your heads!”
