an apple a day?
Ok, so I subscribe to Shape magazine, which often has interesting stuff that I faithfully ignore. But one of their ads in the newest issue is for this Golds-Gym-sponsored weight loss program thing, in which they’re stipulating an apple 1/2 hour before each meal, 3 times a day, as a, well, weight-loss plan.
They’re doing a 12 week challenge which requires no entry fee, although they’ve got a “Total Success Kit” you can buy for nine bucks.
The grand prize is $50,000.
I think it actually sounds like sort of a cool thing to try. (I like apples.) There’s more information about it at http://www.getfitfoods.com/contest/the_challenge.html. I know I need more fruits and veggies in my diet, anyway! :)
Anybody interested in joining me? You’re supposed to take ‘before’ and ‘after’ pictures for the purpose of actually joining the contest.
The no-purchase-necessary info for the contest is:
Mail us a 3×5 card with your name and address clearly printed on it to: Entry Form Only c/o Get Fit Foods – 18 N. Worthen, Wenatchee, WA. 98801-6137.
According to Dutch folk wisdom, one should not eat an apple and have a cup of tea too close together, or one will get indigestion. Personally, I have not noticed this, but my coworker and my mother swear it’s true.
Fortunately, I don’t drink tea! :)
