The eBay Recession Diet or how I lost 5 lbs, my money and my sanity

This is an actual conversation - me and Kat in a planning session for our next joint project - an ebay diet book -

Beth: so we're doing "empty nester meals" again - which means left overs from the freezer or sandwiches. I've lost 5 lbs between this and being poor

kathysimpson: Hey, more than one way

kathysimpson: you could probably write a diet based on that and sell it, LOL
