Diet. Die-t. No wonder the first three letters of the word “diet” spell D-I-E. We kill
ourselves by food extremism. As a nation we are extremists. On one extreme we
starve ourselves with crash diets….such as the watermelon diet, the grapefruit
diet, the banana diet, the boiled egg diet, or the “I’ll just watch you eat while I cry
internally from hunger” diet. On the other extreme, we gluttonize ourselves until
we can’t breathe… with “dumpster-size” movie theater popcorn, a gallon of pop,
nachos, and a box of “mega mondo” sugar candy….before we go out to dinner.
