Dieting - What is the point

We are almost half way through January and for those who decided to make their New Year's Resolution that of dieting - thought I would post this that I received by email today :-

DIETS AND DYING

Losing weight is the number one resolution made each year. Yet winning the war gets harder and harder as we age. Finally--scientists have come to a startling conclusion on how to win the battle of the bulge.

THE JAPANESE eat very little fat and suffer fewer heart attacks than the British or Americans.

THE FRENCH eat a lot of fat and also suffer fewer heart attacks than the British or Americans.

THE GERMANS drink a lot of beers and eat lots of sausages and fats and suffer fewer heart attacks than the British or Americans.

THE JAPANESE drink very little red wine and suffer fewer heart attacks than the British or Americans.

 

THE ITALIANS drink large amounts of red wine and also suffer fewer heart attacks than the British or Americans.

CONCLUSION: Eat and drink what you like. Speaking English is apparently what kills you.

So - Some of my friends are OK - but sadly there is no hope for me - so I am off to raid the fridge!
