Gwyneth Paltrow swears by ‘em, and Demi Moore, Ashton Kutcher, Salma Hayek and Megan Fox also report using them occasionally.
But now the liquid diet fad is reaching a whole new population via sites like Gilt group and GroupOn. The big ones in NY are the BluPrint cleanse, the Organic Avenue “Love Cleanse”, iZo, and the Cooler Cleanse; they’re all pretty similar. A few bottles of juice a day, and maybe one meal, to a “purer, healthier, younger, more rejuvenated you”. Their websites are totally appealing and I’m almost considering buying one for the cute bottles.
My sister/roomie’s biggest vice is cheddar cheese.
She inhales it, usually half a block at a time. And not only does she remain the naturally-thinnest (is that how you say that? whatever) person I know, but her cholesterol and labs are all perfectly fine. RUDE.
I always have to remind myself that although we’re from the same gene pool, it doesn’t work the same for me. Maybe because I really like wine and crackers too, but half a block of cheese regularly and a) my jeans will be trouble and b) my fingers will be fat from too much salt.
Unless they’re going in an omelette or on something masking their lack of flavor, lower fat cheeses tend to taste and feel like rubber. So here’s the (really kinda sucky) rule to keep in mind, especially with holiday parties coming up:
When it comes to hard cheeses, a 1.5 oz serving has ~170 calories. That’s 3 dice.
