Yesterday was Day 65 of my Year Of Living Sober. It was a Saturday.
I mowed the lawns. I changed nappies. I surfed the net. If my life was a reality show you’d have to do a lot of editing to find the juicy bits. Fortunately for me (and you!) my life is not a reality show.
But Snooki’s life is a reality show.
Well, her whole life may not be on show ALL the time but a lot is. Just google ‘The Snooki’. That’s how I got to find out about her. And for those who don’t know, here’s a bit about The Snooki.
The Snooki is a gal from America who stars in reality TV show, Jersey Shore. Apparently she used to be a lot
fatter bigger than she is now and she is attributing her rapid weight loss, at least in part, to cutting down her alcohol intake.
To quote THIS SITE…
“Snooki said that what helped her through it was cutting back on drinks.”
And if The Snooki is anything like me it won’t just be the empty calories of booze she’s no longer needing to burn off (by doing whatever Jersey Shore girls do to burn off excess calories—my guess would be shopping and bonking) but the extra food one is prone to eat when drinking alcohol too.
One of the big benefits I’ve found from not drinking (of going cold turkey, of abstaining from boozing) is my appetite is no longer regularly stimulated to the equivalent of a starving speed-eater at a hot-dog smorgasboard. By not drinking beer or wine with—and before—my dinner I don’t chow down for as long or as much.
My boozefree self is a more moderate eater. To put it another way my Pissed Pig has been replaced by a Sober Savorer.
And thanks to The Snooki’s new boozing-less diet, and the world’s preoccupation with celebrity weight-loss (reports just in—Snooki’s hit 98 pounds!), girls (and boys) around the world will be exposed to the potentially life-changing knowledge that boozing less=weighing less.
As long as you don’t replace alcohol with ice-cream.
