“I’ve lost loads of weight, just by wearing bread around my head. It’s a loaf hat diet”

Instead of a “low fat diet,” what about a “loaf hat diet”?

For lunch I’m having a Bowler sandwich and for tea a Trilby on fried bread. I’m on a loaf hat diet” was posted on Twitter by Anthony Wallis on June 13, 2011. “RT @thekeithchegwin: Big Cap 4 brekkie.

Strapping bread to my cranium, and occasionally nibbling on it can be a bit inconvenient, but my doctor has put me on a loaf hat diet.

If you wear all the bread you have in your house on your head, you’ll lose weight because it stops you eating it.
It’s the loaf hat diet.
