How Not To Lose Weight

Neatstep parking comic - the weight loss diet

In the recent pandemic, a lot of strange things happened. During this time I suddenly lost 15 pounds, which was impressive considering it was unplanned and quite unnecessary.

After the initial shock, I eventually figured out the reason for this weight loss. Whilst browsing for cereals in the local supermarket I had discovered a giant packet of puffed wheat. This product was on special offer and of course, nobody can resist a good deal! I thought it would be fun to try something different for a change. Indeed, it tasted so good that it soon replaced my usual breakfast every single morning. Apparently, that was too much of a good thing – or perhaps too little of a good thing!

Reverting to a more varied breakfast restored some of the missing weight. They say that what doesn’t kill you only makes you stronger but somehow I’m glad I didn’t test that theory to the fullest!

In the above comic, the Boss is always willing to try a new weight-loss scheme. Unfortunately, he’s not so keen to properly interpret the guidelines.
