The pile of leftovers is shrinking. There are only a handful of measly, stale cookies left in the jar. And your belt has had a homemade hole or two added to it. It's time for a diet intervention.

In the blur of alcohol, appetizers and desserts that was the last two weeks, the only thing you probably haven't eaten enough of is a vegetable.
