A diet that’s the dog’s dinner

I’d like to introduce you to the best reducing diet,
While others can be boring this one’s always been a riot.
Your portion size is always halved and as for calories
They disappear before your eyes, as easy as you please!

All thoughts of cake an little treats this diet will just banish
… And if you do succumb temptation will, quite quickly, vanish…
It is a kind of magic, for as quiet as a mouse,
This diet sniffs temptation from each corner of the house.

It comes with varied exercise to get you out of doors
… And (if you’re showing willing) also rolling round on floors…
It gets you out of bed before the dawn to start the day
And stops you getting bored because it always wants to play.

It doesn’t have a fancy name, celebrities don’t know it,
And if it has a claim to fame, this diet doesn’t show it.
But if your waistline suffers, when you’re eating like a hog…
I highly recommend it… as a diet… get a dog.

    I don’t know how you keep churning out such wonderful poetry and then there is all the writing plus all the other creatives. Do you sleep Sue? Just as long as “The Dog gets walks”!!!

    And yes, a dog is a sure-fire way to at least get in a little walk a day!

    Fun and funny! I figured one of Ani’s prime directives was to keep her human moving!


  8. Brilliant! I can recommend another highly effective weight-loss regime – the dog food diet. It’s so disgusting you’ll stop eating after a couple of mouthfuls! 😀
