I have to say, I think that most people are totally missing the point.
If you eat well, avoid processed and fast foods, drink lots of water and include a little daily activity in your life (like walking or gardening or playing with your kids), YOU WILL NEVER HAVE TO DIET AGAIN. Yes, that is what I said–no dieting–ever.
If you simply gave your body what it needs to work properly, you would never find yourself in a position of “having to diet”.
There is so much misperception out there about how to lose weight, what “diet” works or doesn’t, what you need to do to be “healthy’–just a little “food for thought”–how much of that misperception comes from commercials and ads for Diet Products, Food Products and Pharmaceutical solutions? Most…doesn’t that make you go Hmmm??
So, get right to the point–give your body the nutrients it needs by eating whole, tasty foods–from as close to home as you can get them. Cook more yourself and avoid processed, fast and junk foods. Drink lots of water. Include a little activity in your day. That’s it. Problem solved. Never diet again…
