The Truth About Dieting
Learn the truth and create your own special Fairy Tale Land.
I am not a representative of any corporation, pill-pushing manufacturer, exercise industry not have I any thing to gain from sharing this information with you. Sure, I might sell some of my special recipes and clearly print out step by step the way to succeed with the Fairy Tale Diet… but a mere $10 is not going to make or break you financial and it will not set me up as the next millionaires!
I am positive you have heard what I am about to say… but… do you want to lose your unwanted pounds without pills, shots or exercise and easily be able to keep it off for the rest of your life…or do you want to try starving again while you keep jogging up and down the same path losing and regaining those pounds until you drop over dead?
You already play ‘Follow the Leader’ but start following us, and quit following after the diet industry or the powers that be and gain in the wisdom, not more pounds. The wisdom found in fairy tales: with each blog I will do my best to expose and expound the meanings, morals, and insights of the Fairy Tale Diet, how it got it’s name, and too… Big Brother’s hidden agenda.
We started doing the research and laying the boundaries for our Fairy Tale Diet in mid February 2009.
‘The Powers That Be’ (TPTB) do not want the public to know the truth about many things, dieting is just one*.
We could purge obesity, famine, poverty and disease from the world within the shortest period but ‘they‘ will not allow it to happen.
‘They’ call those of us who speak out “Lunatics, Dreamers and Discontents” and fein concern for the changes we so long for, but fear and power guides them.
We decided that if ‘TPTB’ continue to refuse to help the populous, we can not stand wringing our hands nor keep silent one more second on what we know can help. Woe to any who prevent us.
‘ TPTB’ know they are poisoning our food with chemicals, hormones and more in the name of progress and for the all mighty dollar*. Do your best to buy all of your food from health food stores or grow your own. You will have a better chance of getting uncontaminated food.
Use herbs not prescriptions for pain and healing*. The medical field and pill producers are in the money because they never really heal anyone… Think about it… If you get a cold it takes a week or two to get over it if you do not go to the doctor for his pills…. and if you do go to the doctor for his pills … it takes a week or two to get over it… huh? Yeh!
Advertising: Prepackaged lunches, dinners and more are touted as the answer for the busy family. Stop buying those tempting items that are packaged, prepared, starches, sugars and any items containing wheat or alcohol*. These items are addictive and low in nutrition to boot*. ‘ TPTB’ spend millions on advertising these types of products knowing that those items have little to no redeeming nutritional value and are filled with wheat, sugar and starch… to dull your mind and body… keeping the public docile and fat, and sickly*! Notice the programs on TV for children… in the back ground you almost always see boxes of cookies or cereal, bags of chips or a cake… and then ‘TPTB’ advertise those same sugar and starch filled items to our children on the commercial breaks*. Have you ever noticed that a 6 pack of beer is cheaper than a 6 pack of 100% fruit juice, and that soda pop is cheaper than bottled water?
PILLS and SHOTS: Diet pills are a ‘come on’… no one wants to live on pills forever… thus the after diet binging that leads to yoyo diets also leads to bigger size clothes every year or two*.
Many movie stars, models, sports heroes and business execs have touted the benefits of a machine or gadget, pill or diet farm that promised to end your weight problems FOREVER! Forget it! They lie!
They are designed, for the most part, to set you up for failure*. The industry wants you to depend on these as an addiction*. They know full well that the pills and shots will not continue to work in the long run*. Increased doses are likely and that you will surely regain all the weight that you lost and half as much more. This will send you back to buy more or strong ones in hopes that the cycle can finally be broken and that you might meet your goal*. They depend on this yoyo syndrome to stay in business. One might even think of ‘TPTB’ as glorified drug dealers*.
EXERCISE: I am not telling you that we do not need to exercise, because we do need to keep in shape. We need to keep active and tone our muscles so they do not atrophy from being a sedentary populace. What I am saying is that in the long run it does not amount to a hill of beans if you exercise and cut calories at the same time. Do not double stress out because of trying to regulate your new eating habits AND sweat yourself into a heart attack… I have stood in this concept from my youth and am finally vindicated in my soul and yet sound stand on the matter! Millions of dollars are spent each month on apparatus that boast weightless promises to help you lose pounds and inches. They produce data about how the body responds and even have a few folks to testify that the products are working for them. There may be a fast one line statement about eating healthy but… they NEVER tell you about the exact amount of cut calories or describe the restricted, limited dietary menu that their representatives are using with the apparatus. Exercise is a come on… and does NOT help in the long run with weight reduction. Remember that I have said we have hard proof? MSN posted an article on-line by a doctor, Karen Collins, R.D., that finally tells us that the test results are in and that after a year there is no physical difference in the folks that faithfully exercised along with restricting their caloric intake and those that only dieted and never broke a sweat.

WEIGHT PROGRAMS LIKE ‘THE WATCHERS’ AND ‘THE JENNY’S’ THAT HAVE DIET FOODS SHIPPED TO YOUR DOOR and THE RESIDENT ON SITE PRISON FAT FARMS: Those very expensive programs may help for a while, as long as you are in resigned to following their regime, continue to only eat what their program demands and don’t ever cheat*. They chose your foods for you, your serving sizes and sometimes even the time of day that you may eat. They can be so restrictive that you feel like you are either in prison with a Food Cop watching your every bite or you are in a total emotional mess because you have committed all that money and time to a program you absolutely hate! The minute you return to the real world, eating as you please, even if only for a few days, you will, guaranteed, begin to regain what you have lost and then some! There is a better way… but you still have to follow a few simple rules. That is true about every program out there, including this one! (However with the Fairy Tale Diet you are supposed to break the metabolic chain (or cheat, as you must)… and then return! With the other programs there are no regulations for a person to be able to straddle both sides of the fence. ‘TPTB’ call our way of living nonsense! We call it a Fairy Tale Diet! There are NO MAGIC CURES! However we seem to have the closest program to one.
Look at a few of the unsuccessful, famous folks, both men and women that have traveled that road, Oprah, Kirstie Alley and even, yes, men like John Travolta. While they all had enough money to buy their way to lasting ‘Diet Success’… that just was not going to happen. They were unaware of our simple little program with which we ever commoners are finding success. If only they had not bought into to the industry propaganda.
THE BOTTOM LINE: The only program that ever works is one that makes you aware and determined to cut the amount of calories you put into your body, and to do it FOR AS LONG AS YOU BREATH*. PERIOD. The only success you will have is the one you control, that works for you and you alone are dedicated to making it a life long change*. The Fairy Tale Diet may or may not be the one that helps you to reach and keep up you weight goal*. We pray that it is, or a variation that you may stumble upon that works for you. The hardest part for many is remembering to order ahead and allow for order processing and shipping times to get the needed items for this program. (We reorder as soon as an order arrives.) This program works for thousands… because they can easily live it*! So what if you fall off the wagon occasionally? This program is very forgiving with built-in ‘cheating’*! But is it really cheating when you HAVE TO CHEAT to make it work? Try it our way… Follow the Fairy Tale Diet. Used our guideline that you can vary to crate your recipes, design meal choices and include snacking between meals as much as you want within the confines of the somewhat strict perimeters of the amazing Fairy Tale Diet*. The most important thing to remember is to enjoy the food you eat on the 5 consecutive days that you are only allowed to eat these items and to be totally self-indulgent on the 2 consecutive days a week that resets your metabolic rate*.
So with all that in mind… and getting hungry… so what shall we create today?
How about a FREE RECIPE, something everyone will call decadent and delicious and never even think the words: diet food? (Think military: Don’t ask… Don’t tell! Lol)
Although this is a style of what some folks call bread pudding… I just can not bring myself to call it that… once you taste it I am sure you will agree! This amazingly delicious recipe makes a two layer cake, but DH and I can not eat that much by ourselves so we cut the recipe in half and it is just perfection! It is not real sweet or super chocolatey… so if that is what you crave, then double those two ingredients!
