Daily Fitness For The Non-Athletic

A calorie guide citing a recent medical association report: “Proper weight control and physical fitness cannot be attained by dieting alone.

     Diet guidelines

  • If no one sees you eat it, it has no calories.
  • Miss Piggy’s guide to life says, “Never eat more than you can lift.”
  • If you drink a diet soda with a candy bar, they will cancel each other out.
  • Snacks consumed at the movies do not count. They are part of the entertainment.
  • If you fatten up everyone around you, you will look thinner.
  • Pieces of a cookie have no calories because the act of breaking causes calorie leakage.
  • Late night binging ~ the refrigerator light is not strong enough for the calories to see their way to your butt!
