Dieting & Obesity

Okay, let’s face it: I am obese. I love to eat. It is my favorite thing to do and I always feel momentarily better after I eat my favorite foods—until I step on the scales (which, by the way no longer register high enough to calculate my weight). My whole family is obese. I figure it is hopeless.

 If you mindset is that developing and maintaining a weight within a recommended range for your age, height, and body structure is hopeless—it is, until you change your mindset and self-talk. Dieting has been found largely ineffective long term. Sure, short term, by doing something radical from your usual daily routine, you can drop a few pounds. Within a space of three years most people gain back everything they lost, often with a higher fat-to-muscle ratio. Developing a Longevity Lifestyle and maintaining it for the rest of your life, is much more likely to give you the results you want.
