I look at this as just another name for a fancy diet, we know what to do & we are alwasy trying to find the magic cure to weight gain!
This article is cute. Becky, please see my comments on this thread http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/message
(Why do people regain weight? by Coach Jen)
I really do want to thank you!
Some of these comments are killing me...come on people...The actual size of YOUR bikini has nothing to do with the portion sizes. Note it clearly states to use a 9 inch plate, then 1/4 should be your meat, 1/4 grains/starch, and 1/2 veggies. The bikini part is just a general visualization tool. It does NOT mean if you have D cups you get to eat more than someone with A cups.
You've got to be kidding! I could fit at least a couple of full days' food onto my bikini. So you're promoting anorexia for tiny people and binge eating for those who are already obese? Shame on you!
Did this article originally appear on April 1?
This was a great article. Very humorous. Who knows I may never wear a bikini, but if I use this method I might get closer- LOL
Sensible suggestions presented with a sense of humor. Very creative! Reading the comments though, some people didn't get it. Oh well.
Funny way of putting things. At my age and weight I'll stick to a full suit thank you. The way of portion control is important. Measuring in this way was imaginative,and well put.
Hilarious! & so true!!!!!
To help with tip #1 - How about 9" paper plates for Summer! Dance ~Woo Hoo~ with all the free time from dishes. The bikini visualizations should help all readers this season!!! Thank you.
As a dietitian, I really like this article! It's cheesy, sure, but it got my attention, and taught true principles of nutrition in a memorable, visual way. Thanks for the tips!
This article was silly and very complicated.
Good for a giggle!
Loved this visual! So much easier to think of portion sizes now!
