    Diet Fads/Diet Programs: Past and Present

    I was curious to see how many of us actually tried the diet fads or programs.

    BTW, I HATE that word! DIET!!! No such thing!!!

    no sir, I never could understand why anyone would.

    In fact my freshman year in college I took a speech class and one of my speeches was on fad diets.

    I still remember one of the lines in my speech: "What happens after you lose the weight? Are you going to drink shakes the rest of your life for lunch?"

    Have you ever looked at the nutritional info on one of those cans? Pretty terrible (IMHO).

    I did the Aspen Wellnees diet for 4 days bc/ I worked for that company!

    Boy, did it SUCK!

    As for others, I used to Dexatrim to curb my diet when working long hours in retail mgmt. and for a quick fix, I did the Slim fast bc/ I thought of it as a meal replacement. What can I say? I was young!

    Yeah but we all know that in the 80's Protein bars (gummy-like) and shakes tasted like chalk.

    At least where I got MRP's and bars, it did.

    it's basically just a sugar drink.

    You would be better off mixing up some Nestle Quick with a glass of milk!
