How To Lose Weight Like Horatio Sanz

Have any excess weight? Might you after the holidays? It's getting easier to follow in the increasingly shallow footsteps of Horatio Sanz, the former Saturday Night Live castmember who told New York he'd lost about 100 pounds.

Recent more-than-a-little-obsessive entires dealt with cardio workout times (you never need to exceed an hour!) and the entirely natural phenomenon of wanting to sit on your ass rather than working out.

It turns out the latter can be overcome by avoiding the internet!

7. STAY AWAY FROM THE BOTTLE – Alcohol is a depressant. You might feel better in the short run but it's not going to help tomorrow. It will also help you avoid #5, and the horrendously embarrassing drunk dial… YOU know what I'm talking about
