"Woman Doctor's Diet for Teenage Girls"

"Flossing has become a national pastime and, if you have to put something in your mouth, it's a great alternative to eating. Flossing is moving a waxed thread in and out between your teeth to stimulate your gums. You can floss 3 to 4 minutes daily. Spread it into four one-minute sessions if you are doing it in place of eating."

"Actually, in females, obesity is more of a life-spoiling disease than a life-threatening disease..."

"The Mirror Game. Every time you feel like eating, look in the mirror first. If that doesn't stop you, take off a few clothes. If that doesn't stop you, strip down to nothing. Do you like what you see? No thigh bulge, no big butt... then stop your diet! But, if you don't like what you see, keep dieting. If you must eat that piece of cake, eat it in front of the mirror and watch yourself swallow every bite."

Excerpts from Barbara Edelstein M.D.'s "The Woman Doctor's Diet for Teen-Age Girls", a best seller. In 1980.

I found this book at the thrift store for $1, and it has since become a constant source of amusement and horror for me and my friends when we're bored. I laugh and cry at the same time, and wonder how many children of the 80's she traumatized into a lifetime of poor self esteem and misinformation. It reminds us all to take even what is considered "expert" advice with a grain of salt, and use your head when making decisions. Don't believe everything you read!

Now I'm off to buy dental floss!

I'm imagining some poor teenager eating cake naked in her room and her mom or dad busts in... how exactly would you explain that? AWKWARD.

Okay guys, I've been keeping up on my flossing and I've lost .001 pounds, the approximate weight of the food stuck between my teeth!

This may inspire a naked cake-party.

But you can only have a piece of cake if you enjoy the nudity.

O.k. - it has NOTHING to do with weight loss, but you should still floss your teeth! For overall health, dental hygiene is nearly as important as exercise and good nutrition. But you only need to do it once a day.

(@Jia Jem - I agree, one doesn't know whether to laugh or cry.)

Naked cake party.....that sounds a lot more interesting than it should.

And where can I find a copy of this book? XD It's horrifying and hilarious at the same time.

We need to thank the writer for inspiring the naked cake party. What a wonder! And lets not stop there, cookies, and red velvet cupcakes too :P
