The Trick To Losing Weight...


Forgetfulness.

Quite often, when I'm about to prepare myself a meal, I think to myself, "Wait, did I already have lunch?"

Yes, my memory is that bad. But, whenever I'm not sure, I default with not eating. Because I'd rather go hungry than be the guy who ate double lunches.

So, if you can trick yourself into forgetting...hello swimsuit season.

so...you want every one to be stupid? come on who forgets if they ate or not?

seriously, just eat better and work out: lift weights and do some cardio.

or take laxatives

a more practical example:

i always eat 2 bowls of cereal in the morning. at least once a week, i forget whether it was my first or second bowl.

i often go without my 2nd bowl due to cereal amnesia. and i save 140 calories of captain crunch goodness.

Swimsuit season? Dude, you're like the poster child for emaciation.

Sabai said...

well done. 6 pts. for using a word that proves the ignorance of the other members of the conversation, establishing yours as the dominant viewpoint. wax on, wax off my son.

You can't possibly enjoy eating if you are forgetting that it happened, and that's a crime all by itself.

i also feel guilty about enjoying eating, too. especially when I get incredibly happy after eating Chinese food. I feel like I've taken drugs or something.

I probably should see someone about that.

In college, we titled this phenomenon "anorexanesia," a portmanteau of "anorexia" and "amnesia."

It seemed apt at the time.

see, and marc proves I'm NOT delusional, because someone else concurs with me, and more so, has HAD the same idea. two birds.

What you say about forgetting is quite possible. I also went through your post about being constantly sleepy and tired. I am not a lazy person. Join the club. I feel the same too. I exercise regularly and eat well, but the symptoms continue. I forget a lot of things, but thankfully I dont forget to eat :)
