Teaser Tuesdays (Mar.30)

March 30, 2010

teasertuesdays31 Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

My Teasers:

“If you want to, you can eat meat-lover’s pizza, ice cream, chocolate, or whatever else you like… The only limiter is that you have to eat those foods in smaller amounts… and you have to wait for hunger pangs.”

~ p.25, “The Eden Diet” by Rita Hancock, M.D.

 PS… My review of this book is here: http://shouldbereading.wordpress.com/2010/03/29/review-the-eden-diet-by-rita-hancock-md/

 

PLEASE LEAVE A COMMENT with either the link to your own Teaser Tuesdays post, or share your 2 ‘teasers’ in a comment here (if you don’t have a blog). Thanks!

  1. That’s a good advice :)

    I’m so eager to share my current read :)

    here it is>> http://bokunosekai.wordpress.com/2010/03/30/teaser-tuesday-the naked-traveler/

  2. What good advice – but so hard to follow!

    My Teaser Tuesday is here.

  3. I liked that teaser. Here’s mine this week.

  4. Here’s my teaser for this week: http://www.rulethewaves.net/blog/?p=1325

  5. I like that, it sounds as though the book uses common sense.
    My teaser: http://www.rundpinne.com/2010/03/teaser-tuesdays-within-hollow-crown_30.html

  6. That sounds like quite the directive. I wonder if the rest of the book is just a simple reiteration of that same command?

    My teaser this week is from Alexandra Bracken’s Brightly Woven.

  7. Works for me! *G*

    My teaser: The Botticelli Secret

  8. I have heard that so many times I should try it!! lol :)

  14. Lizzy permalink

    It seems like good advice, but will people actually wait for hunger pangs? Great teaser!

    Here’s mine: http://cornucopiaofreviews.blogspot.com/2010/03/taser-tuesday-march-30.html

    • I have waited for those hunger pangs, and I lost 25 lbs in 6 months while still eating chocolate, pizza, and ice cream! It DEFINITELY works! ;)

  15. Good advice. I actually used to do that and lost a few pounds before my gourmandise got the better of me. XD

    Here’s my teaser for today:

    http://simplengkaligayahan.blogspot.com/2010/03/teaser-tuesdays-march-30.html

  16. Happy Tuesday! Here is mine!

  17. I like this advice I try not to diet or limit myself in any way otherwise I gorge out! But heres my teaser for the week:

    http://tryreadingmymind.blogspot.com/2010/03/teaser-tuesdays_29.html

    If you like a good mystery check this one out!

  18. Reading this list gives me hunger pains. Here is my teaser for this week.

  19. Just reading that list of food gives me a stomachache!

    Here is my teaser for the week…

    http://westietherapy.blogspot.com/2010/03/teaser-tuesday-forsaken.html

  20. Very true — take smaller bites as well. Oh, how I miss meat lover’s pizza! The closest Pizza Hut is more than 500 miles away…

    My teaser is here.

  21. Oh, it can be hard to wait for those pangs!

    Here’s my Teaser.

    My teaser is HERE.

  23. Here’s mine . http://zetor-mogsblog.blogspot.com/2010/03/teaser-tuesdays_30.html

    I’m starting this book later today, sounds like a good read to escape the miserable weather, I’ll float away to Rome for a few days. Easter in Rome —- wonderful!

  24. Small portions sounds like good advice, but don’t like the sound of waiting for hunger pangs – don’t think that would help my metabolism (or concentration levels at work!) :)

    Here’s my teaser, from the second Stieg Larsson novel: http://bookloverbookreviews.blogspot.com/2010/03/teaser-tuesday_30.html

  25. My teaser is from Armadale by Wilkie Collins. Visit at English Major’s Junk Food.

  28. I hear this diet advice all the time – smaller portions! Here’s my teaser.

  29. Great teaser!

    My teaser comes from The Highest Stakes an interesting historical fiction novel.

    http://web.me.com/quirion/Bookaddict/Blog/Entries/2010/3/30_Teaser_Tuesday.html

  30. Sounds good to me – it’s a pity I can’t follow that advice all the time!

    Here’s my teaser:

    http://www.booksplease.org/2010/03/30/teaser-tuesdays-hearts-and-minds/

  31. Oh my kind of diet… chocolate and pizza. Have to check it out.

    Here’s my TT

    http://eatingyabooks.blogspot.com/2010/03/tuesday-teaser-dwarves-by-markus-heitz.html

  32. I love this advice – it pretty much is telling readers to control their eating, which is what can cause over weight in the first place (over-eating) and is what a lot of people have trouble with (over-eating and self-control) Wish it were that easy, but I’m sure there is more detailed advice in the book.

    My tuesday teaser is here ( http://mardel-rabidreader.blogspot.com/2010/03/teaser-tuesday_30.html ) – abd I’m having a lot of fun with this weekly meme! Thanks for hosting it, Miz B.

  71. I like your `Teaser Tuesday`.
    It sounds like the `Rick & Bubba Big Honkin` Book Of Grub` I just reviewed. They talk about eating what you want but in moderation.

    It’s so hard to wait on those hunger pangs.
    I made some cookies yesterday & I want to eat them all.

    Thanks for posting.
    My teaser is up.

    July 1937. A train wails through the night like an angry dragon. It heads toward Shanxi Province in the northwest of the country. This is guerilla territory–the heartland of the Communist Party and its Red Army. Lan Ping is twenty-three years old.

    From “Becoming Madame Mao” by Anchee Min. Great read for those who like to pick up a bit of history along with their fiction. Lan Ping, of course, was to become Madame Mao Zedong, the woman universally known as the “white-boned demon,” whom many hold directly responsible for the excesses of the Cultural Revolution.
