Luckily, I found the dietgirl book and read the first 1/4 of it while enjoying a fairly healthy dinner at Panera. I did half of the Mediterranean veggie sandwich, a cup of French onion soup, and a baguette. Lots of carbs, but a grand total of 14 points, which I could afford because I had eaten light and done my 3 mile run earlier in the day. I'll take a sensible approach over cabbage soup, thankyouverymuch.

Yesterday I stopped by Barnes and Noble to pick up The Amazing Adventures of Dietgirl. As I was scanning the shelves for the book, I was startled by how many ridiculous diet books are out there. I mean, I'm no idiot, I know there are lots of people out there looking for miracle cures, but I really thought that the excessively ridiculous diets appeared only in infomercials and websites. I couldn't believe that someone could actually publish a book called "The Lemon Juice Diet," or one that seemed to be about how women in the Hamptons keep weight off. The picture on the front of that one was a blender with celery and carrots in it. Um, yum? I can't wait to try it? What a sustainable approach???
