Have you ever wished you had a body like Beyonce or
Gwyneth Paltrow? Now, this goal may be easier to achieve
than ever. Rumor has it that Hollywood starlets are
using a new 60 day diet plan to slim down. Their secret
- they wrap their hands in Ace athletic bandages before
each meal. Then, they only eat what they can pick up
with their enclosed mitts.
Items on the menu for this ďthumblessĒ cuisine include:
apples, diet shakes, and soup (through a straw). Not
edible: French fries, M&Ms, and Doritos. Ironically, old
dieting standbys such as salad are on the list of foods
you canít eat without opposable thumbs.
One aspiring actress revealed ďThis diet is the best
thing ever. Iíve lost 5 pounds and half an inch from
each thigh. I leave the bandages on all the time now,
and Iíve gotten rid of sooo many bad habits. Did you
know itís really hard to text and drive when you canít
use your thumbs?Ē
Thumbless Diet - a supermodel prepares for diner
Some people who have tried this diet point out that once
you get one hand wrapped, it is virtually impossible to
wrap the other hand without help. Personal trainer
Shawna Pollit offers a solution - use socks instead.
ďBut this doesnít mean youíre allowed to cheat. You
canít have little mister sock puppet holding the fork in
want to succeed with the thumbless diet you have to
commit to the concept of NO THUMBS - seriously.Ē
Nutritionists point out this diet works best when paired
with a daily exercise regimen.
