Time to start on that biker body?


Here in Minnesota I can tell spring is coming because the sun sets a little later every day. I leave work at 5 p.m. and last week it was pitch black walking out to the car. This week has brought a surprising change, it is not quite that dark! I know, it’s the little things in life …

This got me thinking about riding my motorcycle. Which lead to getting back into exercising and eating right. And then, I found a copy of this diet. A friend received this from a doctor several years ago. The first time I looked it over I thought she was kidding. Believe it or not neither she nor her doctor meant this as a joke.

Dr. McGillicutty’s Diet

No sweets

No snacks

No seconds

Smaller helpings

Smaller bites

Chew more

Eat slowly

Drink a glass of water 1/2 hour prior to a meal to stretch the stomach, which lowers the appetite when you are ready to sit down to eat.

NO EXCUSES!

Watch out for the word, BUT, it usually means an excuse is coming.

Weigh yourself daily and record it.

Continue to weigh yourself even when you get to your “ideal” weight to keep from regaining the weight you worked so hard to lose.

You should be able to lose at least one pound per week on this diet.

Personally, I have not tried this diet! My friend lost over 60 pounds quite a while ago. She has kept the weight off by continuing to follow this diet!

Bon Appetit!

Disclaimer: Try at your own risk. Wisdom would dictate that if you need to lose weight seek doctor’s advice before starting any diet and/or exercise program.

  1. The best way to have a healthy body is to accept and to start loving the form we are given by nature (not everybody can be a Barbie), and do some exercise like walking. Come on, where would be the fun in life if you would follow this nazi-like dictate, and live by the rule of the scale. Fries with that? Yes please, and make it extra greasy.

    • ROFL! Super-size me and I’ll take a diet with that! I think many of us know when it is time to adjust the food in-take and when to enjoy the food and company.

      This diet is pre computer – typed out!

  2. Someone just sent this to me! I had to add it here …
    A bald, wizened little man was rocking in a chair on his porch, smiling happily. A passerby, charmed by his smile, came up to him and said, “I couldn’t help noticing how happy you look. What’s your secret for a long happy life?”

    “I smoke three packs of cigarettes a day,” he said with a toothless grin. “I drink a case of whiskey a week, eat fast food, and never exercise.”

    “No way! How old are you?”

    “Twenty-six.”
