Thin People Don’t

Thin People Don’t

By Barbara Florio GrahamFrom McCall’s, June, 1983I learn each food plan I can get my palms on. I even observe their strategies. However finally, inevitably, I at all times get fats once more. Now, ultimately, I’ve discovered The Reply. After dwelling for nearly 14 years with a person who by no means features an oz. it doesn’t matter what I serve him, I’ve discovered what it’s that retains him skinny: He thinks otherwise. The actual distinction between fats and skinny folks is that skinny folks:keep away from consuming popcorn within the motion pictures as a result of it will get their palms greasy;break up a big mixture pizza with three buddies;assume Oreo cookies are for youths;nibble cashews one after the other;assume that doughnuts are indigestible;learn books they’ve to carry with each palms;change into so absorbed in a weekend undertaking they neglect to have lunch;fill the sweet dish on their desks with paper clips;counteract the midafternoon hunch with a nap as a substitute of a cinnamon Danish;change the deep-fryer they obtained for Christmas for a clock-radio;lose their appetites once they’re depressed;assume chocolate Easter bunnies are for youths;save leftovers which might be too skimpy to make use of for an additional meal with a purpose to make attention-grabbing soups;throw out stale potato chips;will eat solely Swiss or Dutch chocolate, which can’t be discovered besides in a particular retailer;assume it is an excessive amount of hassle to cease at a particular retailer simply to purchase chocolate;do not rejoice with a hot-fudge sundae each time they lose a pound;heat up after snowboarding with black espresso as a substitute of scorching chocolate and whipped cream;strive all of the salads on the buffet, leaving room for just one dessert;discover iced tea extra refreshing than an ice-cream soda;get into such attention-grabbing conversations at cocktail events that they by no means fairly work their manner over to the hors-d’oeuvre desk;don’t have any compulsion to maintain the sweet dish symmetrical by lowering the jelly beans to an equal variety of every colour;assume that topping brownies with ice cream makes too wealthy a dessert;convey 4 cookies into the TV room as a substitute of a field;assume banana splits are for youths.
