I have developed a simple new diet concept which I think just might work.

  1. Chop everything (and I mean everything) into bite sized pieces. This is sure to burn calories as you chop and dice.
  2. Use toothpicks to pick up the pieces and put them in your mouth. The stabbing motion of the toothpick burns more calories. You should only need to use 1 toothpick per sitting. If the toothpick frays or falls apart, then it is time to quit eating.
  3. If the toothpick can’t hold the morsel of food, don’t eat it.

If you try this (I haven’t–I don’t like wooden popsicle sticks or wooden spoons), let me know. I’m curious how it works.
