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.
