How to Get Fat Slideshow
April 9, 2013
Be a Couch Potato
Don't exercise! Lie around on the couch, take the elevator, and look for the closest parking spot.
Take a Big Gulp
Get lots of calories from liquids! Drink soda, juices, lemonade, fruit punch, and fruity cocktails.
Indulge in Emotional Eating
Use food as comfort! Eat when you are stressed out, lonely, bored, or sad.
Load Up on Refined Carbohydrates
Eat lots of refined carbs. White breads and bagels, cookies, cakes, crackers, pies, and candy are all fair game.
Don't Forget About the Fat
Choose lots of unhealthy fat in your diet! Fast foods, chips, fried foods, many packaged and frozen foods, and cook with lots of oil and butter.
Subtract the Fiber
Eat less fiber. Not too many fruits, vegetables, or whole grains.
Make It Hard on Yourself
Surround yourself with temptation. Keep junk food readily available and go to the all-you-can-eat buffet or pastry shop.
Engage in Mindless Eating
Eat absentmindedly. Eat while watching TV, reading, or driving.
Skip breakfast and have a big lunch and dinner. Have your biggest meal right before bedtime. Remember: It's all about lifestyle changes... not diets!
