How’s This For A Crazy “Forking” Diet?
There are a ton of weird diets out there, but here’s one we’ve never seen before (although apparently it isn’t totally new): Forking. The principle is to eat only foods that can be eaten and prepared with a fork. You’re allowed to eat what you want during the day (within reason), but when it comes to dinner, it’s forks all the way. Want some onion in your spaghetti? Too bad. How about mustard on your sandwich? Out of luck. The idea is that you don’t exclude any foods, and you satisfy your hunger at breakfast and lunch, so you don’t feel deprived. There are, however, two levels of the diet: “Strict includes fork-only for the preparation of food, whereas Gentle allows you to use a knife to prepare your food but only your fork to eat it.” So does that mean you can have a hefty steak if you cut it up into little pieces before it goes on the plate? We think the only way you’d stay sane on this clearly bogus regime is to have a very sharp spork. [SoFeminine.co.uk]
