Fad diets are for people who are too lazy to eat right and exercise.

Nah, those of us who are too lazy to eat right and exercise are too lazy for fad diets, too.

Exercise? I get enough exercise just pushing my luck. I heartily recommend the "Hostess Twinkie" diet! You won't lose any weight, but with all those preservatives you'll live forever!

Actually it has been proven that you will lose weight eating hostess twinkies if you take in less calories than you normally do.

I imagine the trick would be staying alive until you reach your weight goal.

On the other hand, if we do die, it will take six undertakers to get the happy smile off our faces!

nope.

The logic is 100% correct on how they do it.

Calories in vs calories burned. If you change your diet to less calories you end up with a smaller total for the day and lose weight.

Doesnt mean that you are healthy however.

Oh, I absolutely agree you could lose weight. But that doesn't mean a heart attack wouldn't take you out before you got finished, right?
