During our recent conversation, Pooh Bear was kind enough to give a sneak preview of his latest book, The Pooh Bear Diet, which is coming out on Hundred Acre Press late this summer.
"Eat small smackrels of the food you love. I always ate too much hunny. Now, I go help Rabbit in his garden and we share carrots after we work. Very healthy."
"Exercise is helpful, but don't be too adventurous at first. When I began, I would bounce with Roo. I started with one bounce, then gradually worked up to three. Now, I bounce with Tigger for up to a minute at a time and take daily walks with my good friend, Piglet."
"When I have a craving, I like to pretend I'm a raincloud, sometimes. Because I know that rainclouds don't eat honey, no, not a nip. I never eat with Eeyore, because when I'm depressed I tend to over-eat."
"Don't forget to forget your diet every once in awhile. Celebrate on your birthday."
He finished up with these last words.
"It's very simple, really. Mind over matter. Before you eat, you must think, think, think."Thank you, Pooh. ^_^
