The Lyrics

This is a song about a certain low-carb (And low-energy) diet that is getting a bit too popular.
I never thought
Pasta was wrong
Bagels are evil, who'd of known?
I counted every gram of carbs,
I never thought it would be this hard.
I made some dishes from the book,
Too bad that I am not a cook
I'm too tired to go on
Maybe that old man was wrong

I counted every calorie
Weight Watchers was better for me
Days when I could still eat bread
Now I just wish I was dead
The world insisted on no carbs
No pastas didn't seem that hard
I couldn't wait
'til I lost weight
This diet, I have learned to hate

I never thought, that bread was wrong
Another 10 pounds and I'll be done
Take all those foods, away from me
Cereal's out, as you can see
Panera's out, but meat is good
Remember the time when I could eat food
Those were good times, thinking back now
Krispy Kreme, this is all your fault!


I'll try again, to lose the pounds
South Beach diet's coming round
Now I'll try to lose the weight
Third times the charm, that's what they say
I'll lose the weight as time goes by,
The diet's over, I've survived
I can't wait
'Til I get home
To try to lose the weight alone

I'm actually on the South Beach diet. I've lost 30 lbs. so far. The Atkins people realized how much this diet was kicking their ass, so they changed it up a bit. South Beach represent!

I'm not on a diet, I just realised that Atkins was a really bad diet and worked from there.
