Bikini Season

How this Fast Diet Lifestyle works: Eat these meals tomorrow. On Thursday, eat the meals that will be posted on Wednesday.  Eat sensibly the other days of the week.  That’s it.  Simple way to lose weight and be healthier.                                                                     Welcome to Jasmine Eclipse who is now Following.

Is there a connection among the atom bomb, swimwear, and the Fasting Diet? Yup.  On July 1, 1948, the US detonated an atom bomb on its test site named “Bikini Atoll” in the Pacific Ocean.  On July 5, 1946, Louis Réard debuted a novel 2-piece bathing suit in Paris. He had been beaten to the punch by a designer from the Riviera who called his skimpy suit “L’Atome” since the atom was the smallest particle known.  Réard dubbed his version “le Bikini”, after the site of the nuclear test.  The suit, made from 4 tiny triangles of fabric, was daring in its brevity and that it showed the wearer’s navel.  The name stuck but Réard, a mechanical engineer by training, had difficulty making many sales at his mother’s Paris lingerie shop because of social reaction. There was a popular song in  1960 about bikinis, but not until Ursula Andress rose from the sea in a white bikini did the look really take off.  The rest is history.

It is Summer in the Northern Hemisphere and people are going to the beach. Are you going in a muu-muu or a bikini? The Fast Diet will help you to get into a slimmer body better than any diet I’ve ever tried.  What you wear after you achieve your target weight is entirely up to you. Today’s breakfast is delicious and easy to prepare.  The dinner is full of the rich flavors of the French Riviera. Both are perfect for getting you onto the beach for a trim swim.
