Dixie Cup diet :)

A while back at the Y they had an unattributed description of the "Dixie Cup Diet" on their bulliten board that was pretty funny. I was surprised to not find a mention of it on Google.

The basic idea of the Dixie Cup Diet is that the trouble comes when food enters your stomach, not when it goes between your teeth. So you carry around a Dixie Cup with you whenever you eat fattening foods. You enjoy the food while you chew it to a paste and then you spit it into the Dixie Cup and throw the cup away. Lots of pleasure, zero calories!

(I haven't tried this, but my wife Liz said that she had tried something like this once years ago but had found the practice to not be fulfilling...)
