Yo-Yo Diet

My buddy Mike has been on a Yo-Yo Diet since Dr. Atkins introduced him to a diet I like to call Early Onset Diabetes: bacon triple cheeseburger.

(Hold The Bun).

Last week at Max’s Deli, he ate an 8 oz. Franchisee Hot Dog stuffed with cheese, wrapped in bacon and deep-fried.

(No Worries, Mike Skipped The Bun).

In 2002, Dr. Atkins had a heart attack.

Go figure.

When people tell me they’re on a diet, I know for the most part, they’re up a creek without a pudding pop.

Eating right is a lifestyle change. Not a point contest sponsored by Jenny Craig.

Talk about a Ponzi Scheme. But if you’re one of those people looking for a formula, here it is.

Lean Proteins + Portion Control + Complex Carbs = Knees That Don’t Hurt From Carrying Around Too Much Weight

Simple Dimple. Trust Dr. Joey.

Here’s the new mantra for 2013: “Counting Calories Is Out. Common Sense Is In.”

Grilled Skirt Steak & Grilled Veggies

  • 8oz Skirt Steaks, make sure your butcher has jaccarded them
  • Tri-colored Baby Bell Peppers
  • ½ in thick cut rounds Vidalia’s
  • Medium thickness Asparagus
  • Plump Portabellas


  • 1 cup hoisin
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 bulb ginger

Final Thoughts

Toss meat in marinade. Toss veggies in marinade. Sprinkle with black pepper. Sprinkle with kosher salt. Grill & Mow :-)

    Dr Atkins died of an accident. Unless you have a conspiracy theory that you believe ?

    I remember when it happened.

    Could it be a vegan conspiracy theory that he died from his diet?

    If you were really a chef, and you knew about diet, you would not recommend meat for anything. Sure, old fool chefs serve it. But recommend it on a health tip blog, no way. A real chef would recommend a lean fish, or a nice ground turkey (white meat only) meat loaf.

    it’s not always the kind of meat you eat but the logic of portion control. i have a simple saying: if you have food coma you overate.
