When I was in my early 30’s, I wanted to lose some weight and I wanted to lose it fast. I thought about the times when I was so desperate to lose weight, that I started trying all types of crazy diets. I noticed that I wasn’t able to maintain my weight by using the diets that I’d tried in the past. I had to admit that, in reality, I had successfully failed every diet that I’d ever tried. Since I only got temporary dieting results, in the past, I decided to make up my own diet. I always believed that I could create a diet that would work.

When I first got the idea about the Snickers, my first thought was to eat Snickers miniatures because it was a way for me to eat less food.

I opted to figure out what type of candy bar to replace it with later. I’d stopped eating candy all together. I continued to eat my healthy meals, but I decided to start eating meals four days a week, since my body was requiring more food. This was working for me for about three weeks. I’d began to get bored with the diet because it felt like I was still missing something. I’d also started craving desserts again. I knew that I couldn’t afford to allow myself to get bored because that would result in me eventually ending the diet. Since it was time for me to make some changes in my diet, I figured that this would be the perfect time to pick out my new candy snack as
