stupid stupid stupid

okay, i couldn't NOT post about this. i read celeb gossip for kicks and came across this piece of diet advice:


We could all learn something from Janet Jackson; replace the bad with the good.

Janet Jackson has stopped indulging in her favorite sweet treat: pancakes! "She always craves pancakes," says her nutritionist David Allen, who's also co-author of the singer's upcoming book about her weight struggles. Instead Ms. Jackson snacks on a mix of fresh blueberries and strawberries, which together have about 65 calories a cup. Compared to 520 calories for two pancakes with butter and syrup, there’s no need for guilt!


don't get me wrong, i love berries... but they are not a substitute for pancakes! that's stupid stupid stupid.

I hear ya! I'm all for eating berries instead of pancakes, math makes sense. But if you're craving pancakes and eat berries, that's not the secret of your weight loss. Where's the secret behind how to stop the pancake craving? I'd likely eat pancakes and berries (ps - what a great combination!)

celebrities + food = unreal people its just a fact. Look at Queen O, now she is Vegan and it makes the mainstream news? seriously O and her weight up and down, just goes to show weight control has nothing to do with money.

Wow, that's totally ridiculous! I crave pancakes ALL the time, and that's what I had this morning for breakfast. I only have it once every 2 weeks though, and I definitely wouldn't give them up for BERRIES. lol

OMG, that's crazy! How can fruit satisfy a craving for pancakes? Wacky.

Amen! Stupid!

Next time I crave chocolate, I'll just eat a carrot stick...that should work right?

I can only imagine what Janet's metabolism is like after all the up and down dieting she has done; its ridiculous. The more I hear about some of these celebrities, the more it becomes clear that many of them are probably just starving all the time!

Great blog, this is my first time stopping in. Love it!!
