Day five of 'dumb diets' week is an ode to the 'fat free' lifestyle.
The same year that I was obsessed with this movie, I became convinced that if I ate no fat I would get skinny.
As if a gift from heaven above, Nabisco came out with fat free Devil's food cookies about the same time. I remember it took some luck to score a box, because they were selling so fast.
I think this was also around the time that WOW chips came out. Remember the chips fried in Olestra? LIKE Doritos, but with a warning of 'anal leakage' printed on the back. WOW indeed!
My other fat free faves were skittles, starburst, and pasta.
It is no surprise that I did not get skinny despite my commitment to SnackWells and skittles. And I developed a pretty bad snacking habit. SnackWell my ass.
