Why do we say we HATE dieting?

Because...

1. IT'S BORING!
Because being careful all the time takes all the fun out of life, right?

2. IT'S A PAIN!
Because going without our favorite foods is a pain in the butt, right?

3. IT MEANS STARVATION!
Because eating tiny portions is starvation, right?

4. IT'S SO INCONVENIENT!
We can't eat out, we can't drink, and we feel like a leper, right?

I bet you agree with at least one of these statements - maybe all.

OK, NOW BE HONEST!

You won't lose weight if you're not honest with yourself. Trust me.
So let's start being honest. Let's start opening our eyes to the truth.
It may be painful, so feel free to grit your teeth and growl.

THE TRUTH

1. DIETING IS LOT LESS BORING THAN BEING FAT

Yes, starting a diet means changing your eating habits.
And this can be uncomfortable - even 'boring'.

But...

It's a lot more fun than carrying extra weight around all day.
It's a lot more fun than having fat thighs.
It's a lot more fun than wearing extra large elasticated pants.

2. DIETING IS LESS PAINFUL THAN HAVING A FAT FIGURE

You don't need me to remind you how painful it can be, to be fat.
People laugh. People snigger. People ignore you.

Is dieting worse than this?
Hardly.

And remember, your favorite fatty foods are the CAUSE of the problem.
Not the solution.

3. DIETING IS NOT STARVATION!

Dieting does NOT mean eating less.
It means eating differently.

One 5 ounce bagel or Danish can be more fattening than two massive
sandwiches packed with lean meat and salad.

Dieting has nothing to do with tiny portions, or hunger. Trust me.
It simply means moving away from high-calorie, high-fat junk food
and eating lots of less fattening food, instead.

4. COMPARED TO BEING FAT, DIETING IS ULTRA-CONVENIENT

Is it convenient to search 100 shops for something that fits?
Is it convenient to go to the clinic with a weight related problem?
Is it convenient to feel totally exhausted at the end of the day?
Is it convenient to have indigestion after a high-fat meal?
Is it convenient to feel self-conscious about your figure?
Is it convenient to be unable to show off your body? 
Is it convenient to feel bad about yourself?

You tell me.

Can you eat out, when dieting?
Of course you can. As long as you're careful.

Can you enjoy a few drinks when dieting?
Of course you can. Just don't overdo it.

An occasional meal out or a few drinks at the weekend never made anyone fat! It's our regular daily habits that make us fat.

REALITY CHECK

Being fat is not a sin or a curse or a criminal offence.
It is usually simply a consequence of careless eating and lifestyle.

Trouble is, after we've been fat for a while it's easy to delude ourselves that dieting doesn't work.

But this is nonsense.

Unless you have a medical condition that prevents you from losing weight, a sensible diet will ALWAYS help you to get slim.

A DIET IS A PASSPORT TO A NEW LIFE

Being slim is no guarantee of a happy life.
But it sure beats the hell out of being fat.

This is what one of my dieters told me after she slimmed down from
322 pounds to 168 pounds.

She still had a useless husband.
She still had money worries, mother-in-law worries and job-worries.

But SHE FELT WONDERFUL. Why?

Because she had a thousand per cent more confidence.
Because she had a thousand per cent more energy.
Result? All of her problems seemed smaller and more manageable.

THE MORAL?

Don't be negative about dieting.
It's not the problem you think it is.
It's actually the solution.
