Things I've Learned While Running a Contest For a Diet Book

I have some things to clear up hear before I get going on revealing who the winner of the contest is. First, I am surprised by the number of people who have never followed a fad diet. I really truly 100% thought that I was normal and that all people had followed all of those diets and used all those different meal replacements and now I find out it's just me and Oprah. I feel pretty confident mentioning her here because I have watched her show since it was first syndicated in my market (dear tv people note my use of industry language would you like to hire me so I can pay a personal trainer and chef and get off this apparent fad diet abuse lifestyle?)

So, I've been watching Oprah for years and I can tell you that I have listened to her tell me many times that the newest diet is THE ONE! Remember when she drank that shake and came out in skinny for Oprah jeans, or how about that time she started running and admitted to peeing herself during the marathon?

It's no wonder I'm opposed to running. I wonder if there is a 12-step program for fad diet followers. Maybe I really just need a 12-step program to get off "The Oprah"

So! I also learned that people eat better breakfast than I do. And by better I mean more flavor, more imagination, healthier, not plain steel-cut oatmeal.

We had 7 entries but we can only have one winner -
