New Study Proves Dieting Doesn't Work!
Yes, I am going to continue to whine about
the weather here in the Northeast. Just in case
you thought you were having a bad day, imagine
waking up on April 12 to 2.5 inches of white stuff.
It was our THIRD snowfall in April. This year.
Here's the view from my front door:
But that's ok. Soon I will be flip-flop heaven, bugging
my husband to install the air conditioners.
I was interested--but not surprised--to see an
article hit the internet yesterday.
The headline read: "Diets damage health, shows
Dieting isn't good for you? Dieting doesn't work?
That's why REAL PEOPLE DON'T DIET!
You can read the full article here:
Basically, the study reached the following conclusions:
*Two-thirds of dieters put the weight back on
*Most dieters end up heavier than when they started
*Most dieters end up more at risk for heart disease,
stroke and diabetes
*Repeated weight loss and weight gain is more detrimental
to health than being overweight consistently
*Yo-yo dieting suppresses the immune system, leaving
dieters prone to all types of illnesses
The scientists recommend a BALANCED diet. They also
found that study participants who exercised lost the most

Now, I want to make a couple points here.
First off, while "Real

the adage "all things in moderation....".
How do you attain balance? By eating less of the foods
that are bad for you and help you to gain weight, and eating
more of the foods are good for you and help you lose
Sound like a diet? It's not. Notice I said "less"
of the foods
that are bad for you. Not "cut out" all the foods that are bad
Why? Because it's easy to do, quickly becomes a habit, can
be done anywhere at any time, and allows you to eat foods you
enjoy while still losing weight.
Dieters yo-yo because of lack of willpower. Dieting is all
Avoid the denial and you don't need all that willpower.
It's that simple.
People make it harder than it has to be. Experts don't help
with all their preaching and dire warnings. Yes, yes, we
but "real life" gets in the way and gosh, we are just SO
stressed and hungry.
So stop dieting and ruining your health!
Instead, take control and turn your assumptions about weight loss

some adjustments to make, give my friend Leo's program "How To Own Your
Paycheck Again" a try. When we ran our numbers we found out
