Ok I admit it, I’ve got a fat dog. It’s a long story and I will spare you the details but the bottom line is that my 120 pound dog should be about 100 pounds. In my office, it is pretty commonly known that my dog is overweight – ‘I refer to her as my big fat dumb dog’ – so I had to chuckle recently when a coworker suggested that I use a low carb dog food. My coworker mentioned that their dog easily lost 40 pounds. The weight just fell off they said – no additional exercise needed!
Wait for it, wait for it….. wouldn’t you guess that the same co-worker has tried every fad diet out there. This person (who only has the best intentions) signs up for every Diet Bet, Biggest Loser, and other fitness challenge. One time this coworker printed an article and left it on everyone’s desk about these magic new Chia seeds that we have to add to our diets. For some reason this same person resists going low carb. I can’t explain why??
Anyway, I am going to look into the low carb dog food. If it doesn’t work, no big deal, but at least I will try.
