About this project

Whether you are thin or fat, you certainly need to lighten up about dieting.

Be thin in your thought and your body'll be fat; If you wear your hair long you needn't your hat.--Ambrose Bierce (The Devil's Dictionary).


Does not claim to cure, treat, or prevent an illness or condition. Does contain parodies of all the scientific and not-so-scientific theories about obesity, a recipe section (parody, and yet, pretty good), a choose-your-own addiction adventure autobiography section and more to parody all those other diet books.

Risks and challenges

The biggest risk is that nobody will notice the book. Frankly, it's already written and ready for self-publication. But finalizing touches and publicity are quite a challenge. The money raised will go to professional design, editing and publishing. But, the Kickstarter campaign itself can generate publicity.

    The Secret Knowledge of The Devil's Diet.
    1) the book with a custom snarky comment and autograph inside the front cover.
    2) A tin of Broken Beer Bottle Brickle (actually maple bacon candy, no beer, no glass).
    3) A package of Yummy Sawdust Cookies (actually sawdust cookies. Inedible. Best Grill Smoking Tool ever). Somebody wrote a recipe for "Yummy Kale Cookies" in one of those other diet books and I just snapped, ok?
    3) The pamplet of secret knowledge including recipes-man-was-not-meant-to-know from "The Gastronomicon"
