"Vegetables are a must on a diet.
I suggest carrot cake, zucchini bread, and pumpkin pie."
But look at the calendar. In four days it will be Thanksgiving. Even though we've already feasted on all the traditional foods and desserts, the fourth Thursday of November is the official start of holiday overeating. It is not the time of year to start a diet.
Unless, of course, it's a diet of sugar cookies and eggnog.
