FAT PEOPLE EAT FOR PLEASURE, FIT PEOPLE EAT FOR HEALTH
The average person views eating primarily as a pleasurable activity. Fit people see eating primarily as a means to increase health, energy and vitality. Food is viewed as a means to an end, rather than an end itself. While fat people are buying into advertising, connecting food with happiness, people who are thin and healthy ignore commercial propaganda and choose to educate themselves on the healthiest foods available. As a result of this vast difference in thinking and behavior, fat people eat for pleasure and create a never ending cycle of emotional addiction that accompanies an ever-expanding waist line. They experience nightmares about heart attacks, diabetes, and an overall loss of energy and stamina. Fit people choose to discipline themselves before they put anything in their mouth, and are able to enjoy what they eat without the guilt or fear of slowly destroying their own health. They know they will be healthier after a meal than they were before. This is just one small distinction that thinking can make the difference between world-class health and an early grave.
