Diet? Me? Oh, No...!

So what, if I’m a little round?
I follow a routine quite sound.
I do have a healthy diet
With a chocolate on the quiet,
Even if calories pack on the rebound!
Why invite and suffer anorexia,
Forced vomiting and diarrhoea,
When a block of chocolate
And some goodies on a plate
Can provide a state of euphoria?

(Some surveys say diets don’t work in the long run... Now, will you call it a case of sour grapes? :-))

Comment Surveys very rightly said, Padmajajji......diets do not work in long run. Why to stay away unnecessarily from the tempting chocolates?

Comment Sure Kulbir, join me when I'm having it on the quiet :-)) Yippeee, Thanks Seshuji! Hema, a lovely poetic feedback. Thanks. Chocolates are indeed so tempting, na?

Comment You for one does not require diet planning!
You provide enough food for others's thought,
extra calories are all fought
As for the chocolates, you tempt me so,
I can never say No No!
