I watched a rerun of The Rachael Ray Show the other day (because I use my time wisely) and she was talking to the author of The Fast Diet. Basically you eat normally for 5 days a week, and the other 2 days, you cut your calories to 1/4 your normal intake (for women, ~500 calories).
So what I’d been thinking were stressed and disordered eating habits are actually being marketed as a weight-loss program. Outstanding.
(Though, um… I did lose 2 lbs. I couldn’t exercise that day because I thought I might pass out. But I lost 2 lbs. so…maybe fuck working out?)
