Thin People Don't

Eating In Freedom! Overcome Overeating! - Learn how to fight cravings. Lose weight through self-encouragement, overcome obsessive thinking and rebuild self-discipline!

By Barbara Florio Graham
From McCall's, June, 1983

I read every diet I can get my hands on. I even follow their suggestions. But eventually, inevitably, I always get fat again. Now, at last, I've found The Answer. After living for almost 14 years with a man who never gains an ounce no matter what I serve him, I've found out what it is that keeps him thin: He thinks differently. The real difference between fat and thin people is that thin people:

  • avoid eating popcorn in the movies because it gets their hands greasy;
  • split a large combination pizza with three friends;
  • think Oreo cookies are for kids;
  • nibble cashews one at a time;
  • think that doughnuts are indigestible;
  • read books they have to hold with both hands;
  • become so absorbed in a weekend project they forget to have lunch;
  • fill the candy dish on their desks with paper clips;
  • counteract the mid-afternoon slump with a nap instead of a cinnamon Danish;
  • exchange the deep-fryer they received for Christmas for a clock-radio;
  • lose their appetites when they're depressed;
  • think chocolate Easter bunnies are for kids;
  • save leftovers that are too skimpy to use for another meal in order to make interesting soups;
  • throw out stale potato chips;
  • will eat only Swiss or Dutch chocolate, which cannot be found except in a special store;
  • think it's too much trouble to stop at a special store just to buy chocolate;
  • don't celebrate with a hot-fudge sundae every time they lose a pound;
  • warm up after skiing with black coffee instead of hot chocolate and whipped cream;
  • try all the salads at the buffet, leaving room for only one dessert;
  • find iced tea more refreshing than an ice-cream soda;
  • get into such interesting conversations at cocktail parties that they never quite work their way over to the hors-d'oeuvre table;
  • have no compulsion to keep the candy dish symmetrical by reducing the jelly beans to an equal number of each color;
  • think that topping brownies with ice cream makes too rich a dessert;
  • bring four cookies into the TV room instead of a box;
  • think banana splits are for kids.
