Diet?! Don't Make me laugh
by Debbie Iancu Haddad
In this humorous and thought-provoking book, we examine the lighter side of dieting. This in-depth look at dozens of examples of diet humor exposes the real-life struggles of people who would like to ‘eat their cake’ but still leave the calories on the plate.
By looking at diet humor we can get a better understanding of the whole process of dieting; how it influences our lives and our self-perception, and what we can do about it? We'll also try to answer the questions: why do cookie pieces contain no calories? and why, if no one sees you eating, it doesn't count
