The Discovery Channel has a show called Mythbusters where a couple of oddball characters attempt to debunk, or potentially prove, a series of myths, most of which I have never heard of. While I believe it's pretty popular, I have only seen this show once. It seemed to be geared towards young people with an interest in science, of which I am neither...young or scientifically inclined.
This isn't stopping me from shamelessly ripping off their idea.
As I struggle through this process of losing weight, I am going to share my personal discoveries on some popular, or possibly obscure, dieting myths. This is my first entry.
Diet talk. I know you are all trembling with anticipation...
Myth #1-Drink lots of water, it will make you feel full and help you shed pounds.
I can honestly say I have given this theory a thorough test in the last week. I have sipped so much water I could fill a small pool. With my pee. I know, that was classy wasn't it. But really, how do people who are NOT Stay at home moms manage this crazy water intake? And when I get hungry, I drink some more. And you know what, I feel full. Of water! And still starving to death. Because it turns out my body can tell the difference between water, and say...a cheeseburger.
As for helping me shed pounds, all I can figure is the path I am treading up and down the hall to my bathroom might count as some kind of physical activity. And the fact that I now drink water instead of chocolate milkshakes. That might be helpful too.
