Bound for the Beach

Combing the sand for the secret to a popular diet

We’re South Beach bound (but not for sun).
Our waves of fat are why.
We can’t fit in our bathing suits.
The scale goes much too high.

And so we’re headed for the Beach
just like we used to go
for Scarsdale, Atkins, Jenny Craig
and others we all know.

Will this excursion turn the tide?
Will weight-loss be in store?
Or will this South Beach rendezvous
just leave us like before?

The answer lies in low-carb foods
and shunning processed snacks.
It has to do with nuts and cheese
we’ve stashed inside our packs.

But there is more to losing weight
than saying no to fries.
The Beach is best when we say yes
to daily exercise.
