One of the most freeing things I’ve ever done is to STOP DIETING. Over 20 years ago.
Like you, I’ve been subjected to a barrage of media touting every new diet. The diet business is BIG business. Like, more-than-$1-billion-a-year big. And there have to be NEW fads to feed the machine.
I’m passionate about reminding you to use your critical thinking skills in judging all the food fads out there because too many people are suffering, and even dying, following really bad food and diet advice.
My videos lately have been about diet fads, including this new one, which might be the most important one I’ve done lately.
What are diet fads? It’s where somebody glamorizes a specific food or group of foods, convinces you that it’s the best and only way to lose weight, and, of course, sells you a book and some products in the meantime.
Now, they may totally drink their own Kool-Aid. They probably think that eating X in copious amounts is THE reason they lost 50 pounds. But, remember this, if it’s the only thing you remember here . . . it’s never just one thing when it comes to health improvement or weight loss.
People who “go on a diet” almost always start exercising, too. They begin to do their emotional work. In short, they turn over a new leaf. And lots of good stuff starts happening.
If you ate an orange every day while you lost that 50 pounds, you might be tempted to tell your friends that they should go on the Orange Diet. Are they served, then, by eating 6 oranges and drinking nothing but orange juice, for a year?
What if we stick to what we KNOW about diet, what’s been extensively studied and works for millions of people? In this video, I share with you what the healthiest, most long-living, happiest, and ideal-weight populations of the world are eating. I hope you enjoy it.
