I like to read books about health and fitness. I try to read things that are not fly-by-night ramblings of someone who thinks their way is the only way. The facts discussed must have backup from reliable sources. I am not looking for any fast solutions or magic pill, I just like to arm myself with as much knowledge so that I only have one option; to do it right.
I am presently reading the book "The Cure for Everything: Untangling Twisted Messages about Health, Fitness, and Happiness by Timothy A. Caulfield (Apr 24, 2012) "
My first thought from the title was, "okay, what's this guy selling". Actually it turns out to be a no nonsense approach to healthy lifestyle.
Now, I am actually learning a lot from this book. But, so far, the biggest, largest, most giant fact I have taken away is frankly so simple it makes me cry. I EAT TOO MUCH! I knew that, ha, I know that now.
I see it on the calorie counter when I enter my food.
I see it on the scale when I step onto it.
I see it on the tight fitting clothes.
I see it, I see it, I see it....
Then why do I do it? I have so many good excuses. I know exactly what I am doing.
Maybe this time it will sink in.
I must EAT LESS!
p.s. I am getting a lot more from this book that I would like to share in future blogs.
