Missing the Point

I have to say, I think that most people are totally missing the point.

If you eat well, avoid processed and fast foods, drink lots of water and include a little daily activity in your life (like walking or gardening or playing with your kids), YOU WILL NEVER HAVE TO DIET AGAIN.  Yes, that is what I said--no dieting--ever.

If you simply gave your body what it needs to work properly, you would never find yourself in a position of "having to diet".

There is so much misperception out there about how to lose weight, what "diet" works or doesn't, what you need to do to be "healthy'--just  a little "food for thought"--how much of that misperception comes from commercials and ads for Diet Products, Food Products and Pharmaceutical solutions?  Most...doesn't that make you go Hmmm??

So, get right to the point--give your body the nutrients it needs by eating whole, tasty foods--from as close to home as you can get them.  Cook more yourself and avoid processed, fast and junk foods.  Drink lots of water.  Include a little activity in your day.  That's it.  Problem solved.  Never diet again...
