Each year we hear of a new breakthrough on weight loss. We are told this supplement will help or that one. We are dragged all over the place for the search for the perfect non painful road to weight loss. As with phen phen in the 80's that killed so many, we still look for the quick fix. But as with all things it comes down to one thing. Moderation, moderation, moderation. I was home bound for four months, and in that time I gained the first weight I have gained in eight years. I indulged myself with food and was happy to do so. It is interesting to note, we do have a lot of fun gaining the weight. But then we fight, we fuss, we groan, and we yell when we have to again take that weight off. We want the quick fix, the pill, the shake, the food bar, that one thing that will take away the weight but still leave the pleasure behind. Do you not think if that was out there they would not have found it by now? Dieting is a multi-billion dollar market each year. Bottom line peeps, when you eat less food you will lose weight. So start by cutting out the second helping. Nothing else. As you go along refine, reorganize, and remake your diet. But remember to include those things you crave. If you cut them out, with the thought you will have them when you reach your weight goal, you will fail, and in failing,gain the weight back plus more.One more thing, if you cheat, if you fail, get right back up and try again. Believe me, this works.
