Lose weight – eat like a horse

The two biggest sellers in any bookstore, according to Andy Rooney, are cookbooks and diet books. The cookbooks tell you how to prepare the food and the diet books tell you how not to eat any of it. Orson Welles once said, ‘My doctor has advised me to give up those intimate little dinners for four, unless, of course, there are three other people eating with me.’
A California scientist once computed that the average human beings eat sixteen times their own weight in an average year, while a horse eats only eight times its weight. Some might say that this proves that if you want to lose weight, you should eat like a horse.
Or maybe the real truth is in that old Biblical principle that says freedom only comes through self control. As Edmund Burke said: ‘It’s our passions that create our fetters.’
