Want to lose some weight?  Iíve developed and successfully tested a new and truly easy-to-use diet.  No starving, no counting, no measuring Ė just go on with your life and make a few nano changes!

1)     Floss regularly.  Floss, but the key to weight reduction via flossing is this Ė do not swallow the bits and pieces you remove with the floss.  Dispose of the chunks and you dispose of the calories.

2)     Canned beverages.  When you finish a can of beer or soda or whatever, a small amount seems to get wedged in the bottom of the can.  Iíve seen people nearly wrench their necks trying to get that last nano swallow.  Just let it go.  First, it isnít that much, but second, it is well established that all the calories sink to the bottom of the can and concentrate in that final few drops.

3)     Tic-Tacs.  This one is critical.  You know that pill splitter your doctor or pharmacist gave you because they didnít have your meds in the proper dosage?  Use that remarkable device to split your Tic-Tacs and cut your calories from that source by a full 50%!

4)     Parsley.  Many restaurants observe the practice of having the chef add a sprig of parsley to each plate to indicate that it has been inspected and approved.  Never, ever eat that parsley.  You will save the calories, but in addition you will protect your health, since those sprigs are often rinsed and reused.

5)     Thyme.  Very important and simple to do Ė just never use thyme in your cooking.  Scientists studying the origin of the universe have determined that thyme was the major factor in the creation of matter and obviously, to lose weight we donít want to take a chance on creating more matter!

I have scrupulously followed these five Nano Diet rules for four months now and Iím pleased to announce the loss of 15 pounds.  Iím certain that the Nano Diet is the reason, but just for fun I also cut serving sizes and started walking 2.44 miles each day.  Results may vary Ė consult a physician or other nano-oracle before embarking on such a new and different regimen.
