I'm working on a post about dieting and it has me SO wound up.
The gist of it is - the diet industry is telling you that (on average) eating 1,200 calories a day is appropriate for a woman to lose weight. What I have discovered is that it is a LIE - 1,200 calories a day is TOO MANY CALORIES if you want to lose weight.
Well, maybe if you ate 1,200 calories worth of bananas or oranges or zuchinni. But 1,200 calories of frozen diet food has kept me FAT for over a year, even with biking 12 miles every-other day ALL SUMMER. On the off days I would go to the driving range and hit a bucket of balls. All. Summer. Long. And I lost, what? NOTHING.
I'll be back with a full post on this and it is SO off topic from our usual discussions, but srsly. My narcs are dead/ish and this is what's on my mind (and MY ASS).
*Title of this post unabashedly ganked from this blog which I found by actually googling 'what did women eat in the 50's' because I have gotten so frustrated. It's a pretty neato blog.
