Die-It is really a four letter word.

I’ve been on a diet for two weeks and all I’ve lost is two weeks. – Totie Fields

Broken into two syllables, the word Die-it is enough to send chills up the spines of those who know what it is like to deprive themselves without getting long-term results. In some cases there may be immediate results (especially in the case of losing water weight), but in the long run, the weight can come back (and then some).

After all, if you completely deprive yourself of the foods you love, are you really living the life you deserve? Are you savoring all of the wonderful flavors that food has to offer? We are not living this life to starve ourselves, but to nourish ourselves. We are meant to enjoy the smells, textures and flavors of foods, and to appreciate the rich diversity of the cultural differences in food. As the character Auntie Mame said “life is a banquet.”
