So I am tossing around the idea of a Jell-O diet.  I have become hooked to sugar-free Jell-O with Cool Whip.  Oh my gosh, it is ambrosia for poor people.  So I looked it up and it turns out Jell-O is almost all protein.  Good, right?  It doesn't really have much else going for it nutritionally except it has almost no calories.  

The question then is this:  What else do you eat in a Jell-O diet?  You need fiber and you need vitamins.  Could you eat Jell-O made with fruit, yes.  Could you eat it made with bran flakes?  You could, but I don't recommend it.  It would look too much like the Jell-O from National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation with the cat food in it.  

So I guess I cannot have a diet entirely of Jell-O and Cool Whip, but I sure am adding it to my repertoire.  I wonder how long it takes before I get sick of it.  Probably a while, there are several different flavors available and the combinations are limitless.
