Bob's Way vs Charlene's Way

In his book, The Best Life Diet, Bob Greene writes,

"...I'm a stickler for this rule: Stop Eating At Least Two Hours Before You Go to Bed.

This is part of a strategy to get you to shift your calorie consumption toward the earlier part of the day, as well as one of the most effective and easy eating habits you can establish"(pg. 58).

I've decided to do things Bob's way. But, let the record show: I'm not happy about it.

You see, I don't think Bob understands that it isn't until after I have bathed and put my girls to sleep, did an evening clean-up, and finally wrestled (and I do mean that literally) my 11-month old to sleep, can I finally sit down, relax, and actually enjoy something tasty to eat!

I mean, has Bob been a Stay-At-Home-Mom? No.

Does Bob have 3 children under the age of 5? I seriously doubt it.

So why am I going listen Bob? Well, because...

I figure: A desperate overweight mama has gotta do, what a desperate overweight mama has gotta do.

Besides, I also figure Bob's way will work much better than Charlene's...



  1. Haha. I love that comic. Too funny! Sounds challenging, but I'm rooting for ya!

  2. Where do you live? Bob's touring this week in TX, AZ, NV and CA. If you want an opportunity to speak to the man himself, go to his "Where's Bob?" page on

    Good Luck!
