Consider this number: 63,614.
That's how many diet books are listed on Amazon.com!
I've probably read about 600 of them, and they all boil down to two things:
- Eat less
- Exercise more
Sounds easy - like swimming through murky waters infested with cheesecake sharks. See, those books don't take into account that we have taste buds and cheesecake tastes good!
I've had a complicated relationship with food all my life. Been fat, been thin-ish, most days I fall somewhere in between.
I've learned a few things along the way. Most importantly, I've learned there is no short cut to good health.
Some days, we just want to sit around watching TCM with a bowl of chocolate chip cookie dough. Not that I've ever done that.
How do we create balance? My hobby, my passion, is health and well-being. This is where I'll share what works, and doesn't work for me.
I look forward to sharing my experiences with you, and hope you'll share yours with me!
