Jolly tagged me (not the first time!) and I decided to take things seriously and find out what this tagging is all about! So, as per the rules of this, I need to do the following-

1. Pick up the nearest book.Open to page 123.
2. Find the fifth sentence.Post the next three sentences.
3. Tag five people, and acknowledge the person who tagged me.

Shifting has become a chore given my recent sedentary habits (try do everything whilst being seated on the couch), so with great difficulty, I picked one up that looks like it has more than 123 pages. And Dr.Atkin's (the author of the ill fated book), on page 123, sentence #5, 6, 7 & 8 says, "..and other vegetable oils (preferably expeller-pressed or cold pressed). Eat no more than 20 grams a day of carbohydrate, most of which must come in the form of salad greens and other vegetables. You can eat (then lots of obscure weird numbers) ..and other vegetables. Eat absolutely no fruit, bread, pasta, grains, starchy vegetables or dairy products other than cheese, cream or butter."

Now, two thoughts cross my head as I look at the bright orange cover of Dr.Atkin's New Diet Revolution. First, if I dont eat any of the eat-absolutely-none-of-the-above, how in nutrition's name am I supposed to survive? Second, what in the good-reading-sensible-book-collection-dont-be-daft-reading-such-yewwey-stuff name is that book doing on my shelf?

First thing tomorrow morning when I wake up (ok, afternoon), this book is going down.

Hey hey! I 'did' acknowledge you! And if you need to know, I dig your blog! It always makes me laugh out loud! And even if your post were an hour's read, I would still be hooked to it! =D

I did! Learnt and had fun!

I knowww..!! I actually bought the book, because of the nutritional information it had. I prefer eating healthy as opposed to being on a diet. The thin line between long term and short term!

I'll get back to you on the first bit of your comment 'after' I have lost oodles of weight!! Thank you for your compliments!

Ghee roast for me!!!! ;)
