I hate dieting. I don’t care how how you spin it, its a form of deliberate starvation. Or controlled malnutrition in the case of low carb/high fat diets.

Why do something to yourself that makes you miserable and need quantities of sleep more usually associated with hibernatory creatures?

Just because your clothes no longer fit, you get out of breath walking up stairs and your lifespan is shortened is no reason to give up the privilege of eating vast quantities of easily available food that living in western society affords.
