Laughter is the Best Exercise

Friday, March 26th, 2004 • 1 Comment on Laughter is the Best Exercise

I vaguely remember my mother doing Weight Watchers when I was a kid.  Then she tried Atkins.  Then she tried a diet that involved eating grapefruit and bananas every two hours or something.  I lost track of all the diets she tried, but that’s okay because they keep coming back!  Retro-diets are hot!  Now you can diet like they did in the 70’s, but without the platform sandals and orange bell bottoms!

I saw the link to this frightening collection of recipes at Put Down the Donut and had to share.  For anyone who has ever tried Weight Watchers (hello, Rose!), this should be proof that the folks at Weight Watchers are not only rolling in the dough after thirty-something years of watching the country’s weight, they’re also laughing all the way to the bank.

Personally, I’m planning on making Mexican Shrimp Orange Salad and Chicken Liver Bake for my next dinner party!  Who wants to come??  But please, for the love of all that is good in the world, I’m begging you not to bring the dreaded Liver Pate en Masque

Perhaps the original intent of Weight Watchers was to help you lose weight through food aversion therapy.  Hmm?

    Whaddya mean ‘tried’? Weight Watchers Works! (Nice alliteration!)And I can report I have never personally tried any of their recipes. All of my stuff comes straight from the convenience food section of the supermarket.
