outside of communities like Spark, WW, etc - 'common sense' about how to lose or maintain weight is not as common as we like to think. It's really hard to believe how many people don't know the things that I consider basic food knowledge. I've been at the grocery checkout line and had the cashier or bagger ask "what is that?" about some pretty common produce items!
Lots of people think quantity is the key to eating healthy, so they get the kid's meal at McDonald's.
Lots of people think that it's okay to eat as much as you want, as long as it's healthy food.
Lots of people think they should be able to eat pretty much whatever they want as long as they exercise.
the first motivation needs to be to LEARN. Then put that knowledge to use. It can take some trial and error. No one thing is going to work the same for every single person. So you need more motivation to keep trying.
in my younger days, I really could eat whatever I wanted and never gain a lb. So I never really learned just how unhealthy some foods are. You start reading labels or using a tracker that shows some detail and you can get a real eye opener!
The most handicapped person in the world is a negative thinker; a person who has the skills, abilities, talents and tools, yet chooses not to use them.
