The Best Diet is no diet at all but a lifetime commitment to better choices! #40

Many studies have proven that all diets have a temporary effect! The secret to losing weight is to make permanent choices in what we do. Here we have some simple long term commitments:
• Commit to whole wheat bread
• Drink fruit juices instead of soft drinks
• Always select fruit as a dessert
• Start most meal with a large salad
• Use whole grain pasta, bread and rice
• Take longer to eat. It takes time for your body to send its satisfaction signal
• Always park your car far rather than near
• Use the stairs for anything less than 4 stories
• Think positive about all of the choices above.

Forming good habits is the answer to long term health!

Nothing tastes as good as feeling thin! #829

If you think you're going to cave and eat that whole box of cookies, just remember how you will feel afterwards. Guilty, sad, angry? Does it feel as good as you thought? Was it worth it? Of course not. It will just set you back on the yo-yo rollercoaster which is really hard to get off. If you really must, just have one - not the whole box!
