Does this sound familiar??

I was browsing around at an interesting website - "Life Hope & Truth" after seeing some of their neat photos illustrating biblical scriptures, and hit upon this article:

"A healthy diet is not a short-term strategy for weight loss. It is a long-term commitment to biblical and commonsense principles of healthy eating.
Healthy Diet

Diets don’t work for most people! If you are looking for a quick fix for losing weight, this article is not the one for you. Why not? “Diets”—as understood by the customary definition of restricting yourself to small amounts or special kinds of food or supplements in order to lose weight—most often result in gaining more weight."

Here's the Twitter that originally caught my eye:

    I think the way I use the term "diet" or was taught to isn't what most people mean by the term "diet"

    I use diet to mean how I am going to eat the rest of my life........

    Even in this more enlightened age I still hear people at the school where I volunteer talking about restricting their calories for a short period of time to lose x pounds and then go back to their regularly scheduled program afterward... usually for a cruise or vacation or some nonsense.. they aren't serious about eating better forever.. just temporary weight loss

    Yes I finally figured out that diets do not work it is all about portion control and exercising for the long haul. emoticon emoticon
