Once again the sainted Herman Tarnower gets me through a bad patch (read demasiado avoirdupois). Today I'm on the third day of the fabled Scarsdale diet--hooray! It's the only one that works for me (when anything does) because of all the nummy protein (as in hamburgers, shrimp, steak, etc.) and I hope it will work this time too, despite my extreme age. Can I stay on it for 11 more days, though? Stay tuned.
