ThePeach Finds a New Miracle Diet

After not posting for over a month and carefully weighing each recent event in my life, I have decided that the most important thing to share with you is my discovery of Kraft LiveActive Probiotic Cheese.

Remember how I said that I am a suggestible person who will buy and believe anything a commercial tells me? I am a marketing researcher’s dream. Well, this month an advertisement in a magazine told me to buy Kraft LiveActive Probiotic Cheese. The advertisement promised me the following:

- Improved digestive health
- Improved intestinal transit, or “regularity”
- Enhanced immune system
- Same great “cheese taste”!

Now, being a slightly neurotic and weight-obsessed harpy, I chose to interpret the claims as such:

- Improved digestive health = less bloat, smaller gunt, happier life.
- Improved intestinal transit = weeee! Poop! And also less bloat, smaller gunt, happier life.
- Enhanced Immune System = You had me at smaller gunt.
- Same great “cheese taste” = Whatever. I’m gonna poop more!

This probiotic cheese seems like some kind of god-send. Seriously, I think god lovingly churned this cheese just for me. Finally there is a product out there that combines my two greatest loves: cheese and regularity. And, in my mind, I have found my new miracle diet food. Cheese as diet food. The concept blows my mind and makes my heart all a-flutter. No wait, that’s just my arteries clogging. *thump* Theeere we go.

So, I immediately dragged TigerCat to the Loblaws to purchase said cheese. I was perplexed by her lack of mutual excitement.

ThePeach: Let’s go to Loblaws!!!!!
TigerCat: Ok. I could use some groceries.
ThePeach: I’m buying PROBIOTIC CHEESE!!!!!!
TigerCat: Ok.
TigerCat: Sounds fun. For you.
TigerCat: Ya, I don’t need help in that department.
ThePeach: PROBIOT-
TigerCat: I’m not buying any.
ThePeach: PROBI-
TigerCat: You probably don’t need it, either.
ThePeach: PRO-
TigerCat: Did a commercial tell you to buy this?
ThePeach: P-
TigerCat: Just buy your fucking cheese and shut up.

My friends, I did buy the cheese. I have followed the instructions and eaten the appropriate serving size every day for the past week. About 3 days in I started noticing improved intestinal transit. Yessss.

Oh, and I choose to ignore the fact that each single serving of probiotic cheese contains 11g of fat.

Does 'improved intestinal transit' mean that the cheese moves quicker through your system, thus, your body has less time to actually absorb those 11g of fat? I choose to believe so.
