Diet for a Supermodel

Buddy is fat. The vet said so. He needs to lose 10 pounds. He's been such a great supermodel that I hadn't noticed that he was in the plus size category.
You know, they usually say that if your dog is fat, you're not getting enough exercise. However, this just ain't so! Between my neighbor, Wally, who walks Buddy 4 or more times a week at 4 miles a go, and me who will run several times a week with him for 2 to 3 miles, this big boy is getting more exercise than most college athletes!
So, what's wrong? Well, turns out, I am overfeeding him. Who knew? Seems I need to scale back on the doggy chow. However, I can offset his hunger pangs with cooked brown rice and raw carrots. (Expect much more pooping.)
This whole thing got me thinking that since I, too, need to lose ten pounds, I'm going to try the "Buddy diet" right along with him (just not the dog chow part). I'm going to eat 3 low-fat, high-fiber, low-sodium, healthy, APPROACHING middle-aged woman type meals (i.e., not much) a day and whenever I have hunger pangs, I get brown rice or carrots. (Expect much more pooping.)
We'll keeping you posted on ONLY the weight loss part of this plan; no other details will be forthcoming.....
