What is the best diet if you work in PR?

I reckon I may have lost a few kgs. My post shower glance in the mirror this morning wasn’t quite as depressing as normal.

Was this the result of some crash diet? No. I suspect it is work related stress. Seems to work for me, but as I looked around the office I spotted a number of different diet/exercise categories?

Which one do you belong to?

Exercise-a-lot and eat-a-lot

The guy who has the best body in the office (according to my boss, I couldn‘t possibly comment) is a Marathon nut. He says he has to consume a shed load of calories to manage his strenuous training schedule. The training takes up so much time, this diet can only work if you don’t have a family, or a life or are Anil Ambani.

Traditional dieting

There are quite a few fans of Shikha Sharma in the office, some of whom it must be said, are clearly not sticking to the plan. This is a good diet for people who like strange food.

Starve-two-days-a-week diet

This is so popular in PR-land that I have lost count of the number of people I know who claim they hardly eat for two days a week – never on the days I see them I notice.

Organic only

Some say that the purer the food, the less fattening it is. Does that mean I can eat two big bars of chocolate if it’s organic?

The dieting-makes-you-fat non-diet

There are some skinny people I speak to who say that diets make people fat. But I also notice that these people never seem to eat anything anyway, which in my view is a permanent diet.

Ciggies, Coffee and unhealthy living

Yep, that’s the one that’s working for me.
