Monday, June 08, 2015

I read this article today. I skipped the top section, but the rest was a good read, a good reminder of the definition of a calorie and how weight loss occurs:

    I read the article it was great!
    Another weight loss myth busted! While laughing all the time I actually leared quite a bit from the article (and the other ones it had links to).
    Thanks for finding these and sharing!!!

    Ha ha! I loved this article! So funny and true! "We live in a world of excess, where corpulent civilians rise from their beds, and aside from brief periods of walking, spend most of their waking hours either seated or lying down." This guy tells it like it is. No excuses!!! All these excuses about set point, slow metabolism, starvation mode, societal pressure--we need to just look at the laws of nature!

    It's modern life that has done this to us, with the prevalence of addictive processed foods, the much too easy availability of high-calorie food any time of day or night, the culture of dieting, etc. AND it has become politically incorrect to make any judgment about obesity! Okay, I'll agree that obesity is a disease. Does it make sense, though, to feel that I have to tiptoe around the topic and refrain from saying we all need to heal ourselves?!

    We have to eradicate the idea that weight control is hard. Nike has a great motto::JUST DO IT!!
