Thin People Don't

2006-07-08 10:40

  By Barbara Florio Graham

  From McCall's, June, 1983

  I read every diet I can get my hands on. I even follow their suggestions. But eventually, inevitably, I always get fat again. Now, at last, I've found The Answer. After living for almost 14 years with a man who never gains an ounce no matter what I serve him, I've found out what it is that keeps him thin: He thinks differently. The real difference between fat and thin people is that thin people:

  avoid eating popcorn in the movies because it gets their hands greasy;

  split a large combination pizza with three friends;

  think Oreo cookies are for kids;

  nibble cashews one at a time;

  think that doughnuts are indigestible;

  read books they have to hold with both hands;

  become so absorbed in a weekend project they forget to have lunch;

  fill the candy dish on their desks with paper clips;

  counteract the midafternoon slump with a nap instead of a cinnamon Danish;

  exchange the deep-fryer they received for Christmas for a clock-radio;

  lose their appetites when they're depressed;

  think chocolate Easter bunnies are for kids;

  save leftovers that are too skimpy to use for another meal in order to make interesting soups;

  throw out stale potato chips;

  will eat only Swiss or Dutch chocolate, which cannot be found except in a special store;

  think it's too much trouble to stop at a special store just to buy chocolate;

  don't celebrate with a hot-fudge sundae every time they lose a pound;

  warm up after skiing with black coffee instead of hot chocolate and whipped cream;

  try all the salads at the buffet, leaving room for only one dessert;

  find iced tea more refreshing than an ice-cream soda;

  get into such interesting conversations at cocktail parties that they never quite work their way over to the hors-d'oeuvre table;

  have no compulsion to keep the candy dish symmetrical by reducing the jelly beans to an equal number of each color;

  think that topping brownies with ice cream makes too rich a dessert;

  bring four cookies into the TV room instead of a box;

  think banana splits are for kids.
