2 I think a lot of diets are scams anyway. IMO, I think you need balance and moderation: meats, veggies, fruits, dairy, grains, fats, sugars, salts, etc. also beware of sauces/condiments. I think people tend to forget that your body has process those too. -- Submitted By: (Jp) on October 10, 2012, 6:12 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
3 I have known some people who had been gung ho about the Atkins Diet. I always thought it was a kooky diet that can lead to irregularity because you weren't supposed to eat bread, including whole wheat. -- Submitted By: (JayD) on October 9, 2012, 11:06 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
4 Now all we need to do is get women to figure this out instead of being brainwashed by society into thinking they *must* be stick-thin to validate themselves as human beings. It's horrible. Any time someone accuses me of being sexist or misanthropic I tell them at least I don't do THAT. -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on May 11, 2011, 9:45 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
5 I, too, am turned off by the bony look. Unfortunately, it seems like the fashion and modeling industries refuse to accept this fact and keep foisting the walking skeleton in their ads and photo sets. There's nothing wrong with some meat on the bones. -- Submitted By: (BigAl) on May 11, 2011, 3:06 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
6 Fad diets never work. Keep it simple: Eat fatty foods and sweets in moderation, work out on a regular basis, sleep on a regular schedule, eat your vitamins, and eat a good balance of all the basic food groups. Do that and indulge every once in a while and you should be okay. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on May 11, 2011, 12:33 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
7 I too think the skeleton look is revolting. And indeed, it is more unhealthy to be excessively skinny than excessively fat. Too skinny means you're not getting enough nutrients, which cause neurological and physical impairments which could stay with you for the rest of your life. Too fat means you're more likely to get a heart attack, but there's still time to prevent it. The same can't be said for the permanent effects of malnutrition. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on May 11, 2011, 10:49 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
8 The funny thing is, I always thought Ann Coulter was kinda hot. But her smoking habit would turn me off so sorry Ann, you'll have to find some other guy to be your dream lover ;-) Frankly I don't know if you can.

9 No doubt Ann Coulter will be heartbroken that you won't be pestering her for a date.... -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 11, 2011, 1:52 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
10 The odd thing is, I never found the living skeleton look attractive at all in a woman, more like horrifying. If anything it's even MORE unhealthy than being overweight. -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on May 10, 2011, 7:13 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
11 Back in my bookseller days, it used to amaze me how many women would bring a stack of trendy diet books to the counter and buy them all. Never mind that these books disagreed, often wildly, with one another; never mind that the women who so eagerly bought them tended to look more skeletal than chubby. They just HAD to have these books. (Not that I ever tried to talk them out of buying the damn things.) -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 10, 2011, 1:29 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
12 Eat what you want (in moderation). Life is too short to worry about food. When your time is up, you are going to die, no matter what! -- Submitted By: (JustLooking) on November 22, 2010, 7:58 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
13 I like was MCS said!! Seriously, I got so sick and tired of all those people on their Atkins Diet. I'd eat a big juicy hamburger right in front of them. -- Submitted By: (Stephanie) on July 7, 2010, 11:23 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote

15 Let me quote (or paraphrase) Penn & Teller: "Try out our new Penn & Teller bullshit diet! You sit there and not eat anything for the next twenty-four minutes and...... it works just as well as all those other bullshit diets out there." Any diet that forbids me from having my pasta, rice and flat bread can go suck on a fish bone. -- Submitted By: (johnnydough) on May 25, 2010, 8:54 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
16 MCS, that really is the only diet that works. It worked then, and it works now. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on February 18, 2010, 10:34 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
17 It amazes me how these trendy diets come and go. The best diet is the Eat Everything in Moderation and Get Off Your Ass Diet. -- Submitted By: (MCS) on February 16, 2010, 5:48 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
18 Dr. Atkins specialized in cardiac health. While his diet was good for your heart, it deprived the rest of your body (including your brain) of vital nutrients, not to mention the fact that a good chunk of our calories (the energy our bodies need survive and function) come from carbohydrates. -- Submitted By: (Maskdt) on January 8, 2010, 12:03 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
19 The food nannies DON'T know what's best for us. At all. They flip-flop like politicians when it comes to which foods and diets are good for us and which ones are bad for us. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on June 28, 2009, 10:24 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
20 Another incredibly lame fad that I hated. Every single day for about 2 years it was Atkins diet this, Atkins diet that, Atkins Atkins Atkins, and then the guy dropped dead and all of a sudden the same people who were pounding into my brain how "healthy" it was suddenly changed their tune overnight! Just more proof that the food nannies, as I call them, don't have a clue what they're talking about and have actually contradicted themselves multiple times over the past few decades on what a "healthy" diet is. -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on June 27, 2009, 7:06 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
