I have to confess I read Ruth’s food diary with absolute fascination. She can put it away. But it made me understand the biggest difference between the amateurs and those of us who eat for a living. The former, particularly the fat ones, lie — a typical day’s intake always comprises a tablespoon of oatmeal, a lettuce leaf for lunch and maybe a Lean Cuisine for dinner. The rest of us? Bring it on! And leave it to the Diamond Jim historians to sort it out.
