Were not as rich as Oprah, but we have something in common with the most powerful woman in America: There isnt a fad diet we havent tried. The grapefruit one made our eyes water; we lost 20 and gained 30 on Dr. Agatstons plan. And day one of the cabbage soup diet was cool until we learned it made our house smell like a sweat-sock museum. In case you couldnt guess, our thunder thighs are still clapping like the audience at an Obama rally. So at 2 p.m. were headed to Whole Foods for the Raw Food Class.
Yeah, yeah, fad diets dont work. We know. But the raw-food movement is a lifestyle change, a total commitment to eating completely unheated food or dishes warmed to a temperature less than 115 degrees. And that doesnt mean your aunts undercooked Thanksgiving turkey; were talking about dishes that range from simple salads to lasagnas and pizzas. Followers claim this diet has major benefits in addition to weight loss, such as increased energy, clear skin, and overall health improvements. Well try anything as long as Chef Sheryn shows us how. The hourlong class is free.
