I'm inclined to agree

I didn't watch the TV series but when I saw The Hairy Dieters book in the display of new stock at our library, I thought I'd take a look.  

It has plenty of photos of inviting looking food and many tips on how to slightly adjust your behaviour and tastes so that you can quietly lose weight without feeling you are on a rigid diet.  All well and good!  

The Chewy Cranberry and Apricot Bites looked tasty and the cake tin needed refilling.  The ingredients included a delicious sounding mix of almonds, coconut, dried apricots, dried cranberries, sultanas, maple syrup, apple juice and porridge oats.  

Well, the recipe did say that it would become "thick and porridgy" and it was not wrong!  Oh dear, oh dear.  

My husband's verdict:  "I will never eat that ever again."

The book has been returned to the library!


  1. I don't have a Telly, so not aware of Hairy Biker Dieters. Except that my MIL tried to explain it to me a few months ago by saying "they're both really big and went to a community centre to cook for some people who were the same shape as you"... To which I replied "what, they were 7 months pregnant?" And she said "no, they were fat." Strangely enough I have less interest in the Hairy Bikers than before (if possible) and will not be forgetting that insult in a hurry!

  2. Ouch!!! I am lucky in that my MIL and I (literally) can't speak each others language which makes for quiet but harmonious visits!
