Don’t Trash Your Diet Just a Little Bit! (Lemon Icebox Pie Thoughts)

The above recipe takes nothing more than 10 minutes, and will absolutely ruin your diet.  I mean, ruin it.

Or… here’s another way to look at it.

My favorite fast way to drop weight quickly comes from Tim Ferris in the 4 Hour Body book.  It’s a “slow carb” diet that is followed 6 days per week with absolute strictness – then there’s…

A cheat day.

I love this diet, and it totally works.  I’ve dropped weight very quickly, then, just when I can’t take it any more – it’s cheat day!

On cheat day, I can have whatever I want.  Absolutely anything, including donuts, pizza – just WHATEVER.

I guess it tricks your metabolism into thinking you’re not on a diet any more – and when I cheat, I do it right.

WARNING.  You might eat this whole entire pie in one day.  If you don’t, you’ve GOT to get it out of your house.  Give it away.  No one is going to complain.  They will talk about this every time they see you.  I mean it.

But if you’re going to binge… this recipe is my favorite.  You can make it quickly, it’s super easy, and it freezes well, so you can use my version above, (which makes TWO pies), freeze the second one, and you’re all set next time you have to bring something fabulous to a cookout, family reunion, school thing, or potluck.

Binge-ing is going to bring you guilt.  Make sure it’s worth it.
