The Martini Diet?

This one broke my heart b/c I sincerely thought it meant drinking martinis (fav. beverage of choice). I mean, imagine breaking out your martini gear at work and proclaiming it as a dietary necessity. Touche diet plan, touche. No snacking on this one although you can get your one martini a day. You are also expected to eat portions no bigger than what fits into a three ounce martini glass. The diet pretty much requires you become a food snob. Here are the basic rules of the diet: Dieters are allowed to eat anything they like as long as it is of the highest quality and made from real ingredients. Each constituent in a meal must be able to fit into a 3 oz Martini glass. As an example when serving a meal of salmon, brown rice and asparagus the portion of each food should just reach the top of the glass. When dieters eat meals at restaurants Sanders advises eating only one third of what is on the plate and then taking the rest home to eat later. Snacking is to be strictly avoided because ‘it is not elegant’ and dessert should be limited to one bite only. Throughout the book dieters are continually reminded to avoid overindulgence in regard to food. Although the diet’s title may give the appearance of being clever way to justify a daily intake of Martinis, alcohol intake is limited on the Martini Diet. A glass of wine with dinner is allowed each day or one martini on occasion. Sample Diet Plan Breakfast Cafe latte Sour cream waffles Fresh strawberries Lunch 1/2 cup creamy vegetable soup 1 slice fresh baked bread Dinner 1 glass red wine Rib eye steak 1/2 cup garlic mashed potato 1/2 cup grilled vegetables 1 Lindt chocolate ball . Exercise Recommendations Dieters on this diet should not expect to be able to indulge in high calorie foods without also being involved in a vigorous exercise plan. ‘Elegant and graceful’ forms of exercise are suggested such as ballet, horseback riding, swimming, and ice-skating. Sex is also highly recommended as a form of exercise. Not sure if I want to laugh or cry about this diet.

If you're feeling daring, try Valerie Orsoni’s “Le Petit Secret." It's a method used by multiple French women who wear a ribbon around their waist when they go out to eat. It's supposed to keep you conscious of how much you're eating because the ribbon will start to feel tighter as the evening progresses. Eating for the Insta. Rather than logging down every morsel in a food journal/diary, take a picture of it. That way you can visualize how much food you're truly consuming. Eat off small blue plates. Putting your food onto small plates will give off the appearance that you have more food on your plate than you actually do. Also, the color blue functions as an appetite suppressant, so there's a reason why a lot of restaurants don't use them. Eat with your opposite hand. This will cause you to concentrate more on picking up your food and unconsciously slow down your food intake. Light a vanilla-scented candle after dinner. Studies show that the aroma of a vanilla candle will dampen dessert cravings. Hang a mirror opposite your seat at the table. You're less likely to shove that extra roll in your mouth when you're staring yourself in the eye during a meal. A mirror will help remind you of why you're trying to lose weight in the first place. Sit at the end of the table. Usually all the shared food such as appetizers, chips and salsa, bread, etc. are placed in the middle of the table for easy access to everyone. The farther away you sit, the least likely you will be tempted to go for seconds.
