The “Cake Cleanse” Diet
I’m pretty sure you can’t lose weight gorging on cake and cookies all day long. But it sure would be cool if this was true . . .
40-year-old Deborah Schipper of Sydney, Australia just published a book about a new diet she invented called the ‘Cake Cleanse.’ The big hook is that you get to eat three DESSERTS a day . . . WHILE you lose weight.
It’s because the desserts are made with strategically healthier recipes. That means you’ll be baking cakes and cookies with ingredients like almond milk, coconut flour, and Greek yogurt.
Deborah says she came up with the diet since she couldn’t lose weight. Quote, “because I love sweets and I knew I could never give them up.”
The Cake Cleanse is a four-week program, and it’s pretty expensive. The nutrition plan and the recipe e-books cost a total of $55.
But if you want to lose weight and you really believe it’s possible to make that happen eating three desserts a day, you can buy it at CakeCleanse.com.
The “New York Times” analyzed Google searches to find which Thanksgiving recipes are unusually popular in each state. And while they’re all strange, most of them sound off-the-charts indulgent. We need to start sharing this stuff people!
Here are five of the weirdest dishes . . . and they’re actually popular in MORE than one state . . .
- Snicker apple salad is popular in South Dakota, Iowa, and Nebraska. It’s a dessert featuring chopped up Snickers candy bars and apples in whipped cream.
- Frog eye salad . . . in Nevada, Idaho, Wyoming, and Colorado. It’s a salad with pasta, fruit, eggs, whipped cream, and marshmallows.
- Stuffed artichokes . . . in New York and New Jersey.
- Pumpkin whoopee pie, in New Hampshire and Maine. It’s two pumpkin cookies with a cream cheese filling in between.
- Sopapilla cheesecake, in Oklahoma and Texas. Basically a cheesecake made with crescent rolls, loosely based on the Latino sopapilla pastry.
There are a few others that sound great just on their name ALONE: Cookie salad in North Dakota . . . key lime cake in Georgia . . . maple walnut pie in Vermont . . . corn pudding in Maryland . . . and pineapple casserole in South Carolina.
And the worst unusually popular Thanksgiving dish? It’s a landslide win for Oregon, where the number one choice is . . . vegan mushroom gravy.
Montana’s unusually popular Thanksgiving food is a close second . . . it’s fruit salad. Come on, Montana. Just fruit? People just one state over are mixing Snickers bars with whipped cream and calling it a salad!
With all the diet books out there, you’d think they’d have run out of weight loss tricks by now. But somehow they keep churning them out. Here are three new ones we’d never heard before.
- Serve dinner from the stove. As opposed to putting everything in dishes, and then serving it at the table. According to an expert at Cornell University, you’ll eat about 10% less. And as a bonus, there won’t be as many dishes to do.
- When you feel like having a snack, distract yourself for 10 minutes. On average, that’s how long it takes for a craving to pass. So go on Facebook, or go for a walk. It doesn’t matter as long as you get your mind off of food for 10 minutes.
- Clench your fists. Several studies recently found that clenching your fists for 30 seconds can give you more will power to control impulses . . . like the impulse to eat that third piece of cake.
Getting dumped for no reason is terrible. Getting dumped for an ABSURD reason is even worse. What’s the worst excuse someone ever used to dump you? Here are eight of the best ones we’ve ever heard . . .
- “We don’t fight enough . . . so you obviously don’t care about this relationship.”
- “You’re not bad enough for me.”
- “You’re chocolate pudding, my ex is chocolate cake. I love pudding, but lately I’ve been craving cake.” Important note: All parties involved are white.
- “I’m sick of guys looking at you. I need an uglier girl, sorry.”
- “I just really need some time to date God before I can date anyone else.”
- “You don’t love me like Edward loves Bella.”
- “There was never an official breakup. She just walked up, handed me some Jell-O, and never talked to me again.”
- “I’m falling for your mom and I want to take a shot at her.”
