“Nothing is a no-no. But moderation is key. As for sugar, you should cut all sugar out of your diet for five days in a row, maybe Monday through Friday. This will allow your brain to break its addiction to sugar. But be sure to allow yourself a cheat meal on the sixth and seventh days. Deprivation is not a long-term solution.”

I’m going to tell you a secret that I usually don’t have to reveal—I am a closet aerobics junkie. I have a binder of workout DVDs for every kind of dancing imaginable, various generic “burning the bulge” titles, Hip Hop Abs, Slim in 6 and whatever infomercial has roped me in this week.

I have intense emotional reactions to all of the people on the tapes, telling me I’m doing a good job, even though I have been doing wonky, ineffective versions of what they’re telling me to do.

In the past I have said that if I was going to hook up with a woman, she would need to be busty and very womanly because, otherwise, what would be the point? But over the years, the true girl crushes I’ve had (not the “oh my god, isn’t she cool”-girl crushes we write about on The Frisky) have been a lot more masculine than I thought they would be. Like Ellen DeGeneres, who I find very attractive. And the chick who briefly hosted “Queer Eye For The Straight Girl” — I think her name was Honey Labrador or something. Anyway, apparently, I am not alone. The New York Times had an interested article this weekend about how women — from city gals to suburban moms — are totally obsessed with the host of Bravo’s Work Out, Jackie Warner, who’s gay. This makes me happy, mostly because the most mainstream acceptance of lesbianism has been when it’s pornified in Girls Gone Wild videos or at your local bar, where girls make out with each other for the viewing pleasure of men.
