Buddha on Diet

Dieting: A system of starving yourself to death so you can live a little longer.
Jan Murray

A diet is when you watch what you eat and wish you could eat what you watch.
Hermione Gingold

A diet is the penalty we pay for exceeding the feed limit.

I have a great diet. You're allowed to eat anything you want, but you must eat it with naked fat people.

Vegetables are a must on a diet. I suggest carrot cake, zucchini bread, and pumpkin pie.

I'm on a seafood diet. I see food and I eat it.

The cardiologist's diet: If it tastes good, spit it out.

I tried every diet in the book. I tried some that weren’t in the book. I tried eating the book. It tasted better than most of the diets.
Dolly Parton

Never eat more than you can lift.
Miss Piggy

A balanced diet is a cookie in each hand

If hunger is not the problem, then eating is not the solution.

I have gained and lost the same ten pounds so many times over and over again my cellulite must have déjà vu.
Jane Wagner

Inside every fat person, trying to get out, there is a beautiful thin one - or even two or three.

Outside every fat man there was an even fatter man trying to close in
Kingsley Amis

I don't diet. I just don't eat as much as I'd like to.
Linda Evangelista

My doctor told me to stop having intimate dinners for four.
Unless there are three other people.
Orson Welles

There are no fat people, just people too short for their weight.

Praise is the best diet for us, after all
Sydney Smith

Probably nothing in the world arouses more false hopes than the first four hours of a diet.
Dan Bennett

An optimist is a person who starts a new diet on Thanksgiving Day.
Irv Kupcinet

The second day of a diet is always easier than the first. By the second day you're off it.
Jackie Gleason

I told my doctor I get very tired when I go on a diet, so he gave me pep pills.
Know what happened? I ate faster.
Joe E Lewis

Can you imagine a world without men? No crime and lots of happy fat women

I found there was only one way to look thin, hang out with fat people
Rodney Dangerfield

The older you get, the tougher it is to lose weight because by then, your body and your fat are really good friends

It's strange but true. Fat chance and slim chance mean the same thing

I went on a diet, swore off drinking and heavy eating, and in 14 days I lost two weeks.
Joe E. Lewis

I've been on a constant diet for the last two decades. I've lost a total of 789 pounds. By all accounts, I should be hanging from a charm bracelet.
Erma Bombeck

No diet will remove all the fat from your body because the brain is entirely fat.
Without a brain you might look good, but all you could do is run for public office.
Covert Bailey

Chatty Crone said...

'You can eat anything you want as long as you eat it with naked people' - boy - that would do it! Funny. Good blog.

Talon said...

I miss Erma Bombeck!

Thanks for the smiles, Buddha!

Mark said...

These are wonderful! Thanks for sharing. Now where did I put that cookie?

Covert Bailey gets my vote!

Giovanna Garcia said...

That is very clever post, you got a lot of funny one there. I often wonder why the word 'Diet' started with the word DIE first!?
Giovanna Garcia
Imperfect Action is better than No Action

Chatty Crone said...

Happy Valentine's Day - don't eat too many chocolates - teehee. Not good for the diet.

C. Om said...

I love it. :-)

I am going for Miss Piggy!
That a Girl...Miss Piggy!
Thanks Buddha... This post made me smile.

RennyBA said...

As a Norwegian, of course I will say: 'I see food and I eat it' :-)

Michelle - Lifeposter said...

'I'm on a seafood diet. I see food and I eat it.'

I love this one.

'A balanced diet is a cookie in each hand'

My balanced diet used to be an iced donut on each hand.

SandyCarlson said...

Thanks for stopping by.

I miss my Minolta X370, too. (I only wish I could match the lenses to a new digital body!)

Karl Staib - Work Happy Now said...

We put too much emphasis on what we think is good, instead of just checking in with ourselves and learning how our body responds to certain foods. When we bring awareness to our diet we realize we don't need a diet, our natural instinct takes over.

Lydia said...

There's something about Orson Welles' quote about the intimate dinner with four that makes that one my favorite. All of these are great......very tasty post!

Charles Bjørnsen Ravndal said...

Hahahha I love what Linda Evangelista said since that is my motto when I started working out.

Btw, I hope you would join this game in my blog now.

"If hunger is not a problem, then eating is not a solution."

That one sounds like it's addressing something serious.
