"Trim Waist, Taught Muscles, Chiseled Face" (剪剪腰,塑塑形,凿个锥子脸)
"Trim Waist, Taught Muscles, Chiseled Face" by island6 Art Collective (Liu Dao)
// BLURB //
You have to get in good shape if you really want to take a shot at doing anything meaningful or interesting. You want to look your best while chasing your dreams, true happiness and utter zen. It helps to have a trim waist, taught muscles and a chiseled face. But how? Robert Cameron’s 1960’s diet pamphlet suggests The Drinking Man’s Diet: steak and martinis. You must drink alcohol with every meal and there are no restrictions on gin or vodka. You could use a vision diet. Seeing blue is said to curb appetite to blue-tinted glasses may help. Horace Fletcher’s 1903 32 chew technique may also work: you simply chew any mouthful of food 32 times and then spit it out. Lord Byron is responsible for the vinegar diet, which he employed in the 1820s to keep slim, essentially just drinking vinegar all day (along with an occasional raw egg). It’s no big secret that cigarettes curb appetite so hey, you could also just smoke all day long. Whatever you choose to do, don’t take the decision lightly. Your body is a temple and it should look one if you ever want to feel good.
